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.
