Here are the HUUB products you all went crazy for in 2017. From leading Wetsuit to winning Tri Suit, to best Accessory or number one Swim item. Behind every product is a labour of love, and we're delighted when you appreciate our products as much as we do! Here’s our shortlist of bestselling items from 2017, that will still be going strong in 2018.
Mens Wetsuit - Albacore
As an athlete, you’re always looking for marginal gains, ways to boost your power and improve your speed. It’s this same drive that inspired HUUB’s Albacore project, taking its name from 1950’s US researchers who aimed to create the most hydrodynamic and agile submarine in the world – the Albacore.
Today, Albacore products are perfection personified. But for us, there is no end; there will always be new materials, new technologies and new ways to pursue our quest to make the optimum equipment for athletes serious about speed.
Womens Wetsuit – Atana
When we created Atana, we felt it was about time that the female wetsuit was more than a sculptured mens suit designed with curves and patterns that merely fit the female form. We took the time to look further into the needs of the female athlete when swimming and ladies are different, you have less dense muscles, you have a much less tendency to have a leg sinking swim style, and you certainly don’t need those superhero looking suits.
The unique buoyancy levels of the HUUB Atana wetsuit allow the swimmer to maintain an effective kick and waterline position designed to maximise flow around the body and improve swim speed by not lifting the body too high out the water.
Accessory – Transition Rucksack Red
When we created this product, we knew it would be the only transition bag you’ll ever need which explains why it is a top seller. This bag has enough space for all your race day gear and is designed to be comfortable enough to exercise with, including a reflective trim for nighttime or early morning riding and a large entry for ease of kit location.
Boasting a huge 32-litre volume to store all of your essential triathlon gear, including a waterproof storage area for HUUB triathlon wetsuits (up to size XL) and triathlon suits, plus storage compartments for shoes, helmets, laptops and goggles. Featuring padded straps and back for comfort, with mesh fabric for cooler body.
Clothing – Quilted Jacket
Whether you are setting up your bike and laying down your kit in transition or waiting in anticipation for your wave time, this padded jacket is perfect for those cold race days to keep you warm.
Available in both a mens fit and shaped womens fit, the HUUB Quilted Jacket is also ideal for everyday use or those brisk walks with the dog and has been a sell-out all year round.
Swim – Altair Goggles
You spoke. We listened. You wanted one set of adaptable goggles with interchangeable lenses. And that’s exactly what we created. The world’s only goggles with three different lenses, designed to give you razor sharp vision in various light conditions. So this year many of you have been able to swap the lens to match your need. It's the little things that make a difference.
Mens Tri Suit – DS Long Course Black
Developed with six times Hawaii Winner and the King of Kona, Dave Scott, you couldn’t get enough of this line. We took all the information that Dave could throw at us and added his passion for speed, comfort and breathability to create a heat-escaping, reflective, and faster garment.
We all know the slimming and aesthetics of a Black Tri Suit, but in this instance, it’s also coated with “Coldblack®” which performs better in its resistance to heat from the sun than a white suit and you cannot see the coke stains on black!
Womens Tri Suit – Core Black/Red
We created a tri-suit like no other. By creating a harmony of fabrics, coatings and tested designs we could offer what we believe to be the perfect all distance tri suit. Voted ‘best on test’ by 220 Triathlon magazine you weren’t the only people that went mad for this suit.
Coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection when applied to any textile in any colour without affecting the look or feel of the product. This tri suit has a close body fit with front zip, side pockets for energy gels and a lightweight, high density and low profile 3D chamois.
