In the meantime we have investigated some low drag swimwear that might just improve matters forthwith.
The Speedo LZR Racer is probably the leading suit of the day. At about 350 GBP that is quite an investment. Trouble is that poolside onlookers will expect Olympic style performances every time you nip in for a quick swim. Let's face it, this would just embarass oneself
So onto the Orca Killa Triathlon Suit Like all Orca this is a quality though 200 GBP product. Great for traithlon in warmer climbs but that cycling pad is not totally ideal for swimming.
And finally the winner is the modestly priced Decathlon Fatiglass Swim Suit The technical writeup is here. It is so good we bought one and here is why:
- Modestly priced at about 50 GBP. At this price you can have at least two, for alternate days and as a backup (of course!)
- It has got arms, that is always good
- Good range of sizes and in Decathlon you can try out all the sizes to get your best fit
