TRAIN AS YOUR RACE WITH THE ROKA SIM PRO II
The SIM is the first practical triathlon and swim training tool to simulate body posture and the experience of a wetsuit in the swimsuit by lifting you up - without overheating wearing a wetsuit in a 26 ° C swimming pool. It is better than a pullbouy, because it allows you to kick and run in a natural way. It also gives a touch of warmth for those cold morning exercises. The SIM makes a race-specific training of every swim. Once you have tried this neoprene swimsuit, you will never want anything else.
Please note, these shorts are designed for the pool and should have excellent durability if you rinse them after use with fresh water and dry them thoroughly.
Fit-tip: SIM shorts are neoprene and release something in the water. However, they have a drawcord for adjustment.
GET THE FASTEST BODY POSITION
The SIM Pro lifts your hips, just like a wetsuit, putting you in the fastest possible position and helping your body develop the muscle memory you need on the competition 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 hindrance to fast swimming. To get the fastest posture, you have to remove the buoyancy, the mass and the resistance from places where you do not want it. With the SIM Pro we add buoyancy to the hips and legs, making the fastest position possible. We also use Yamamoto's SCS coating to further reduce mold resistance. We are convinced that you will feel the ROKA difference as soon as you jump into the water.
IMPROVE YOUR TECHNIQUE
If you want to swim faster with less effort, then rotation is important. A fast freestyle requires effective rotation along your midline to generate strength and speed in the most propelling phase of your stroke. The Maverick Pro uses basic laws of physics. We call our application of those laws "RS2" - the ROKA Speed Stripes. It is science and it will make you faster.
The majority of the wetsuits on the market get this problem completely wrong. We have done MANY trials and tests to get this right. Many suits, even the most expensive, add buoyancy to the lateral or external parts of a wetsuit, but with the help of basic physics it is easy to see that this is the equivalent of adding weights to your cycling shoes and pedals! It slows down the power phase of your stroke, makes it really hard for you to run properly, and makes you use more energy. Our patented wetsuit design improves the power phase of your stroke and encourages quick, easy rotation along your midline. And if you rotate too much when you swim, you will feel this easier in our wetsuit. All this translates into faster swimming with less effort.
For the SIM Pro II we use exactly the same materials as his big brother, the Maverick Pro 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 - with the SIM Pro II you can do that.
The SIM Pro II is 100% premium Yamamoto-neoprene from Japan. We use Yamamoto # 39 SCS coated neoprene in various thicknesses and use Yamamoto's Aerodome neoprene on the midline (front and back). # 39 has long been a favorite in premium triathlon suits and offers an excellent balance between performance and cost. For the waistband we use an advanced textile from Yamamoto to provide a better seal when penetrating water and provide folded neoprene. SCS is Yamamoto's patented hydrophobic surface coating. For the center line panel, Yamamoto Aerodome is a wedged neoprene containing a perforated layer between two solid layers. This composition retains air in small rooms and improves buoyancy and reduces weight.
