It took 12 months of refinement to produce the perfect women's triathlon wetsuit. A project culminating in the creation of the Huub Women's Axena 3:5 Triathlon Wetsuit. Used by modern triathlete, IRONMAN Champion and phenom Caroline Steffen, known as "Xena" to friends and colleagues. It's designed and developed to be more flexible and buoyant using a 3mm upper body and 5mm lower body neoprene thickness ratio. Giving every triathlete the competitive edge and performance they want and deserve. Huub's design philosophy brings research, science and reality together. Incorporating X-O Skeleton alignment, Bicep Release panel, Over Reach panel, Calf Release panel, and Breakaway Zipper technologies with proven dynamic results that make triathletes go faster in the water. While leaving out any industry technologies that just don't add up. The Huub Women's Axena 3:5 Triathlon Wetsuit is the race-ready suit for triathletes who compete to win!

I have had a number of wetsuits and this HUUB Axena is by far the best wetsuit that I have ever had or swam in. The results of my initial swim tell me that every one of the features listed is true and not just advertising. This is by far the easiest on and off wetsuit that I have ever tried. The flexibility is o outstanding with no tightness in the upper body, chest, shoulders, arms, neck or the back of the knees. The construction of the suit allows for the wearer to easily get it past ankles and wrists. It is the only suit that does NOT feel restrictive in the neck and chest when you initially put it on. This is critical for me in cold water swims, as the last thing I want to deal with besides the shock of cold water is that restrictive and "I can't breath feeling". This suit truly has it all and is worth every cent, not to mention the fact that my 100 swim time was significantly faster than any other suit I have tried!
Pros:flexibility non-constricting neck comfortable liner Very easy to get on and off Flexible shoulders buoyancy FAST FITS according to size chart
