Blu Smooth mk2 open water wetsuit
The blu_smooth MK2 is the exciting latest addition to the Blu Smooth wetsuit range. It shares the same simple yet innovative design as the MK1, but is constructed entirely of Yamamoto #39 Smoothskin neoprene with SCS coating.
The additional flexibility and increased buoyancy of the Yamamoto #39 neoprene further enhances the already well received design features of our wetsuits. Exceptionally flexible, buoyant and comfortable the MK2 is the most comfortable and affordable suit in it’s class.
An obvious choice for the discerning open water swimmer or triathlete.
Buoyancy is the key to why you will swim faster in a wetsuit. Forget about ‘go faster stripes’; channels; ‘body positioning panels’ and other marketing ploys. Buoyancy is the key. Increased buoyancy puts you body in a more ideal, elevated position in the water. As a result you swim easier and faster.
A buoyancy of a swimming wetsuit is largely dictated by it’s chest, abdomen and leg panels. Official triathlon competitions allow a maximum thickness of 5mm. This is the exact thickness of the MK2 wetsuit. Don’t settle for anything less…thinner is slower!
The flexibility of a swimming wetsuit is vital to its performance. The simple yet innovative design of the MK2 eliminates unnecessary panels around the neck and shoulder area. Combined with the exceptional flexibility of the Yamamoto #39 Smoothskin and a super-stretch inner lining, restriction on the arm reach when swimming is significantly reduced This eliminates the common issue of shoulder fatigue often associated with sleeved wetsuits.
