You have probably heard of the Swedish Otillo race in the Stockholm Archipelago – the mother of the new sport called SwimRun.
As an innovative brand with a strong presence in Scandinavia, HUUB saw it as its obligation to develop a new type of wetsuit, that would cater for the specific requirements in this style of racing. And so we present to you the HUUB Amphibia SwimRun wetsuit.
In SwimRun races athletes frequently alternate between swimming and running – and the wetsuit generally stays on throughout the entire race. There is no time for changing equipment. The wetsuit subsequently must not only be great for swimming, but also good for running.
At HUUB we attacked this challenge by using our flagship – the amazingly flexible Archimedes 3:5 wetsuit – as a starting point, and have made several alterations in order to also make it suited for running. We have added a front zipper, 3 inside compartments, extra flexibility for the hip flexors, and more hard wearing material on the inside of the quads and on the glutes.
The suit comes as a full suit, but has been prepared for cutting, which is typically done above the elbows and knees.
The pre-order is open now with stock due to arrive in approx 3 weeks so your HUUB Amphibia will be delivered towards the end of March.
