Why You're Faster In A Wetsuit

Does wearing a wetsuit make you a faster swimmer?


Research by Dr. Piacentini, a leading expert in sports science finds that wetsuits:


1️⃣ Increase buoyancy: this helps maintain a streamlined body position in the water.


2️⃣ Reduce friction drag: the wetsuit’s material reduces resistance caused by the water reacting against your skin.


3️⃣ Improve stroke efficiency: Studies show wetsuits enhance stroke length, allowing you to cover more distance with each stroke.


===> The benefit obtained from correct positioning in swimming ranges between 6 and 11%.


It’s important to find the right fitting wetsuit to maximize all the above.
