    KEY FEATURES

    Every now and again HUUB launches something never before achieved from a challenge set by listening to our existing and potential customers. Open water swimming has taken off at a great pace, and the sport demands a suit with full smooth skin properties below £200. It wasn’t easy, with the quality of production and design needed but we’ve mastered it and honestly believe there is no better suit at the entry level price point than the Axiom.

    Axiom is our new entry-level wetsuit perfect for the beginner triathlete or leisure and training swimmer. The smooth skin neoprene helps increase your water speed with the optimum buoyancy of 3:5 for men and 3:3 for women.

    Comfort is paramount, so it features our exclusive flexible low-neckline for comfortable breathing, and the super-flexible underarm panel offers freedom of movement. The Axiom now also comes with a Breakaway Zipper!

    Whether new to triathlon or open water swimming, you can now have a HUUB!

  • HUUB BROWNLEE AGILIS WETSUIT – MENS

    R12,999.00

    Key Features

    We have been working with the Brownlee brothers to create our best collaboration yet – the ultimate wetsuit for elite performance. It has been a two-year development, two years of testing and approving with the Brownlees sitting alongside us every step of the way as our testers and developers. They accept no compromise, no “could it be better?” If it isn’t the best, then they are not interested. Listening to Alistair and Jonny has given us a suit like no other, a suit with two very simple goals.

    The Brownlees wanted to be able to:

    1. Swim like they’re not wearing a wetsuit throughout the full stroke cycle.
    2. Get their hips and legs as high as possible and keep them there.

    It is these two simple requests that led us to investigate materials, stretch, swim strokes and how materials behaved under tension. We have now created a new Arms Neutral™ position reducing the typical maximum stretch cycle down by 50%. Your stroking style with a wetsuit can now mimic your stroking style without a wetsuit delivering a Rotational Freedom™ never before felt – “a game changer” according to the Brownlees.

    New buoyancy materials deliver never before seen leg lift and lower body buoyancy within regulatory rules. HUUB’s exclusive +43™ buoyancy foam provides 43% more buoyancy than standard neoprene. Typically wetsuit companies add extra buoyancy to the thighs and hips, but on this suit, the +43™ material goes past the centre of buoyancy for maximum leg lift.

    Thanks to the input of Alistair, Jonny and professor Huub Toussaint we are now confident in saying there is no faster wetsuit. This is what the triathlete has been waiting for, a no-compromise suit for race day. Alistair and Jonny will not sacrifice their performance for anything, so it will come as no surprise that they will not turn to a suit unless it REALLY is the very best they have ever swum in.

    Receiving that kind of feedback from the brothers is something that isn’t achievable without immense knowledge and a great source of input. This suit really is a beautiful piece of equipment to swim in. Simple yet incredibly effective packed with technologies that cannot be seen, but as we say, “its what you don’t that see makes you faster.”

    Key features:

      • Arms Neutral™ exclusive and patent-pending technology delivering totally unrivalled and unmatched Rotational Freedom™.
      • HUUB’s exclusive +43™ buoyancy foam delivering 43% more buoyancy than standard neoprene.
      • Designed with the Brownlee brothers extensive input.
      • Highest grade neoprene.
      • Breakaway Zipper for the fastest transitions.
      • Pressed neck edge for comfort.

    HUUB VARMAN WETSUIT – MENS

    R9,999.00
    Maximum Flexibility | Maximum Buoyancy

     

    We’ve created a suit with ultimate flexibility on the upper body and huge buoyancy in the hips and thighs.

     

    Over the years we found we needed to push the search even further, to get the maximum amount of buoyancy in the hips and thighs, but the rules in triathlon limit wetsuit thickness to a maximum of 5mm. So our goal was to push the boundaries to get the most out of this, which led us to the most buoyant material ever used in wetsuit production.

     

    +43™ Foam

     

    There is no finer or more buoyant material on the market, 43% more buoyant than standard neoprene.

     

    +43™ is the most significant technological advancement in wetsuit materials for over 80 years. Since its inception in 1930, neoprene has been used in many applications. It took until the late 80’s for the early triathlon adopters to use versions of smooth skin neoprene, and we asked ourselves why this hasn’t progressed?

     

    When tested in our labs we have seen that dimples and contours deliver no benefit to performance. It has taken the constant questioning of the norm, and a multi-year development cycle with our partners in production HD Labs to finally create a material that is lighter, and more buoyant. The result? A groundbreaking 43% more buoyant (than standard neoprene) foam, worth the 80-year wait!

     

    Neoprene will always have its place… well, for now! The Japanese Yamamoto materials we use are perfect for stretch and reach zones, coupled with our engineering and design thought process there really is no substitute, but buoyancy proposes a different set of needs. Where buoyancy for swimming wetsuits is concerned, first there was neoprene, then came NBR, now there is +43™, and we cannot wait for you to try it.

     

    Arms Neutral™

     

    We have now created a new Arms Neutral™ position reducing the typical maximum stretch cycle down by 50%. Your stroking style with a wetsuit can now mimic your stroking style without a wetsuit, delivering a Rotational Freedom™ never before felt.

     

    M.A.D System

     

    Developed in partnership with Innovate-UK the Measurement of Active Drag (M.A.D) is the ultimate measurement – the holy grail of data for swimmers. How much drag am I creating myself and in differing wetsuits, swimskins etc? There are other methods but none as accurate and precise as the M.A.D system.

     

    Professor Huub Toussaint invented the first M.A.D system 15 years ago, but his learning’s and research had him wanting to take it to the next level by using 17 force plates instead of one. With the vision of HUUB and its shareholders, the decision was made to chase the dream and create our very own M.A.D system. No other sports brand has one, and that’s what we couldn’t get over, how can you make claims without thorough testing? The worlds most advanced M.A.D system resides at our testing facility partnership in Mallorca with BEST swim centre. Watch Professor Huub explain the M.A.D system here.
