Huub Agilis Swimskin Men
The Agilis Swimskin will increase your performance in a non-wet suit swim, developed with the best athletes and hydrodynamic equipment available.
Huub Design added high compression, especially around the core. They applied a selection of fabrics that are hydrophobic in nature and perform by being "tight" in the right places. This has the effect of displacing the center of buoyancy. When you do that, you not only reduce surface resistance and reduce cross-sectional area, but you also swim faster.
Thus, they can reduce wasted energy and improve stroke efficiency up to 4.5 seconds per 100 m. As with a wetsuit, the gains are greater the less elite you are. Yes, the elites will gain significant time per 100m, but the middle-distance will gain even more time.
We worked with Alistair Brownlee during the development phase to meet his needs for the IRONMAN World Championships.
Specially selected hydrophobic fabrics are used to provide unique flotation assistance through compression, and a quick out zipper allows for quick transition.
