2021 Helix Wetsuit
THE SEVENTH INCARNATION OF THE HELIX IS SIMPLY OUR FINEST SUIT EVER.
THE EVOLUTION OF AN ICON
FROM OUR HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN NEW ZEALAND, BLUESEVENTY HAS ALWAYS PUNCHED ABOVE ITS WEIGHT. WE NEVER ALLOW OUR SIZE TO STOP US FROM DEVELOPING WORLD-CLASS PRODUCTS, OR TO SHY AWAY FROM COMPETITION. LIKE THE WORLD CHAMPIONS WE SUPPORT, YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR COMPETITION, AND YOUR COMPETITION SHOULD ALWAYS DRIVE YOU TO ACHIEVE GREATER THINGS.
DURING OUR FIRST 15 YEARS, AS IRONMAN WETSUITS, THE DESIGN TEAM WENT BY THE NAME 'BLUE SEVENTY'. SPENDING COUNTLESS HOURS WITH THE WORLD'S BEST SWIMMERS AND TRIATHLETES TO DEVELOP WETSUITS WITH ONE SIMPLE GOAL IN MIND: MAKE SWIMMERS FASTER.
IN 2006, IRONMAN WETSUITS BECAME BLUESEVENTY. THE PRODUCT TO INTRODUCE THE BRAND: THE HELIX WETSUIT. IT WAS AND CONTINUES TO BE A REVELATION. THE RESULTS? INDISPUTABLE. JUST LOOK THROUGH THE IMAGES OVER THE PAST YEARS AND YOU WILL SEE ONE WETSUIT HAS DEFINED THE SPORT, LED MORE RACES, AND CREATED MORE CHAMPIONS THAN ANY OTHER.
IMPROVING THE LEGENDARY HELIX IS AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE NO EASY TASK.
WE ARE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE THE EVOLUTION OF AN ICON.
HELIX 2021 - FAST IS THE ONLY OPTION
We don’t take updating this legendary suit lightly but we’re certain the 7th version of the HELIX is hands down the best yet. We’ve maintained the legendary fit and comfort that defines the HELIX while improving the paneling to encourage rotation and increase distance per stroke.
PREPARE TO BE BLOWN AWAY BY THE NATURAL SWIM ROTATION, BALANCED BODY POSITION, AND INSANE UPPER BODY FLEX. A TRUE SECOND SKIN AND LIGHTNING FAST THROUGH T1.
The HELIX is built on a 5-5-4 pattern, centralizing core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the body. The chest and torso utilize super buoyant 5mm Yamamoto Aerodome to keep the hips high and promote an efficient downhill swimming position.
VO2 CHEST PANEL
The redesigned split chest construction naturally and anatomically accentuates the lungs, producing the optimal amount of buoyancy while maximizing stretch during respiration.
