The Advance wetsuit is recognised as the best entry level suit on the market and Zone3 have worked hard to further improve the look and feel of the suit in their new collection, whilst still keeping the price point as low as possible. As well as providing warmth, the wetsuit is designed to help you swim faster and with less effort. The Advance wetsuit has received much acclaim in the triathlon world with 220 Magazine awarding the suit 92% and its coveted Best Buy award, stating that the Advance wouldn’t feel out of place against many of the midrange products available at twice the price. Tri247.com also tested the wetsuit and stated that the shoulder flexibility felt as good as a top of the range wetsuit from another well-known brand.
