2017 Colting SwimRun SR02 - Man
The Colting SR02 is optimised for speed and agility on land. By changing our wetsuit design from scratch, Colting Wetsuits can now offer one of the lightest and most clever wetsuits for Swimrun on the market. To get maximum flexibility yet also maintain sufficient surface power, we have chosen to use a neoprene of the highest quality, and in order to combine speed with flexibility, we have optimised the wetsuit’s design with the help of different neoprene thicknesses. In order to get a thin and elastic wetsuit around the hips and thighs, and to optimise the surface power, we've integrated so-called POWER THIGH. Power Thigh are panels which are placed on the thighs and are made in a water resistant natural rubber which has as an incredible surface capacity while the rubber does not absorb water. By using integrated power thigh, you get optimal balance and position in the water while you get your hips and legs higher, even if you use the shoes during a swim.
SWIMRUN S02 has other features that help Swimrun enthusiasts:
• To get a lighter and more efficient running stride, SWIMRUN S02 has a thinner material around the hips and thighs.
• To reduce friction, SWIMRUN S02 has a neoprene surface with another structure in the crotch area.
• To reduce wear, SWIMRUN S02 has a coarser material on the back of the thighs and legs.
• SWIMRUN S02 has larger pockets to more easily and securely carry things which can be useful during a Swimrun race or training. In order to maintain the low weight even when the wetsuit is wet, the pockets have holes which water can run through
• SWIMRUN S02 has a zipper both at the front and back to be able to change more easily.
With the help of what we call optimal freedom buoyancy, where one can combine the wetsuit SWIMRUN S02 together with our Swimcalfs SC02, we want to regain the feeling of freedom where it all began surrounding the sport. Swimrun has grown into a sport with space for creativity when it comes to materials and accessories. During races, one usually sees Swimrun enthusiasts with ropes, paddles, pull-buoys and various other aides where the focus is more which aides one has and how one can get from point A to B in the fastest and best manner. With the help of our SC02 Swimcalfs as well as our S02 wetsuit with extra surface power on the thighs, we hope to be able to again provide the feeling of freedom that existed when the sport was new. Where the participants, without pull-buoys and arms free of lots of aides, in an unimpeded manner, could take themselves through forests and seas.
QUAD STRETCHTM Quad Stretch is an extremely flexible material placed in the front and back of the shoulders for better mobility. POCKETS X4 On the inside there are four pockets that are great for things like gels, keys, whistles or other things you might need during your workout or race. QUICK BREATHE We’ve also placed a long zipper on the front of the wetsuit. This makes it easy to get ventilation while running. The zipper is of top quality, YKK. 100% YAMAMOTO SCS SURFACE In order to be able to use as thin material as possible while still maintaining temperature and surface durability, we have chosen to use a neoprene from Japan of the very highest quality; Yamamoto. Yamamoto is 99.7% impervious to water. We use Yamamoto 39 and 40 for maximum flexibility. The tight structure in the neoprene also means the wetsuit won't wear out like common wetsuits do.
SIDE STRETCH Along the outer side of the legs we’ve added a panel which is 1.5 mm thick with extra stretch in order to increase mobility further during swimming and running, but not least when getting in and out of the water. EXTREME FLOATTM After tests with variations of materials, thickness and design of the panels, we have managed to succeed in creating what we call Extreme Float. It's thanks to the mix of 1.5 mm material on the arms, shoulders and on the sides of the legs, 3 mm around the waist and 5 mm at the front of the legs that we've managed to achieve the maximum surface capacity in combination with high flexibility.
POWER THIGH Power Thigh are panels which are placed on the thighs and they are made in a water resistant natural rubber which has as an incredible surface capacity while the rubber does not absorb water. By using integrated power thigh, you get optimal balance and position in the water while you get your hips and legs higher, even if you use the shoes during a swim. R019 We've placed the material called R019 on the back of the legs. It's a material which is extremely flexible and very durable against scratches.
NOTE! In the picture, we've shortened the legs and arms. The suit is only sold with long arms and legs. The cutting in the image is made based on the personal preferences of Jonas Colting.
