ROKA Men's SIM Elite II Swimming Shorts
TRAIN LIKE YOUR RACE® WITH THE SIM ELITE II SHORTS
The SIM is the first practical triathlon and swim training tool to mimic the body position and experience of a swim swimsuit by lifting you - without overheating from wearing a wet suit in a 26 ° C swimming pool. This patent has been applied for for a game changer. It is better than a pull buoy, because it allows you to kick and turn naturally. It also gives a touch of warmth for those cold morning workouts. The SIM turns every dive into a training-specific training course. Once you've tried it, you never want to go back. Please note, these shorts are designed for the swimming pool and must have excellent durability if you rinse them off after use with fresh water and dry them thoroughly.
Fit tip: SIM shorts are neoprene and release slightly into the water. However, they have a drawstring for adjustment.
GET THE FASTEST BODY POSITION
The SIM Elite II lifts your hips, just like a wetsuit, so that you are in the fastest possible position and help your body to develop the muscle memory that you need on the race day. Most manufacturers of top wetsuits only focus on buoyancy. Of course, wetsuits help you get up, but that's not enough - and in some cases it can really be a barrier to swimming fast. To get the fastest posture, you need to remove the buoyancy, mass, and resistance from places you don't want to. With the SIM Elite II we add buoyancy to the hips and legs, making the fastest position possible. We also use Yamamoto's SCS coating to further reduce form resistance. We are convinced that you will feel the ROKA difference as soon as you jump into the water.
For the SIM Elite we use the exact same materials as its big brother, the Maverick Elite Wetsuit. This gives exactly the feeling that you will have on the racing day. "Training Like You Race" starts with the development of precise muscle and neurological adjustments - you can do that with the SIM Elite.
The SIM Elite is 100% premium Yamamoto neoprene from Japan. We use Yamamoto # 39 SCS coated neoprene in various thicknesses. # 39 has long been a favorite in premium triathlon wetsuit and offers an excellent balance between performance and costs. SCS is Yamamoto's patented hydrophobic surface coating.
