Men’s Blue Seventy REACTION Triathlon Wetsuit

Rating: ★★★★★ 

Blue Seventy Reaction Triathlon Wetsuit

The Reaction is the best tri wetsuit out there. Grab it now!

Best Price: $395.00
Get It At: Wetsuit Warehouse

The Blue Seventy Reaction triathlon wetsuit is definitely not an entry level suit, but if you’ve been around the pool/lake/ocean a couple times, then this is the suit for you.

Blue Seventy has put some serious upgrades into their flagship suit over the last couple of years.

Yeah, it’s pricier than your average suit, but you get what you pay for.

Review

What We Think

We’re not shy about our love of the Reaction triathlon wetsuit, hence the 5/5 rating on this bad boy.

And the world agrees with us!  The Reaction is Blue Seventy’s most popular wetsuit, ever.  And even though they completely overhauled it this year, you can still expect it to own the market.

You get top of the line buoyancy, minimal drag  and maximum flexibility with the Reaction and the 2012 model is no different.

Features

  • 100% Yamamoto Neoprene
  • Super Composite Skin coating
  • A- FLEX jersey lining
  • Yamamoto 38cell Neoprene in chest area to help natural buoyancy.

From Blue Seventy

BUOYANCY: The Reaction tiers buoyancy 4-5-4, centralizing Core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the swimmer.

CHEST:  RATING 4mm
Two side panels of 4mm Yamamoto 38cell Neoprene accentuate natural lung buoyancy to optimize your upper body position relative to the legs.

TORSO: RATING 5mm
5mm Yamamoto Neoprene supports the hips and lower torso, lifting the body in the water reducing drag and improving speed. The 5mm panels in the back of the hips, are lateral orientated in order to facilitate raised body position when you roll to the side during breathing.

LOWER LEG:  RATING 4mm
Research with top swimmers has shown that our 4mm Yamamoto neoprene legs deliver the perfect blend of buoyancy without limiting drive from the kick.

FLEXIBILITY:
Our A-FLEX Orange Jersey highlights the Reactions highly flexible 4 way stretch 1.5mm arms and over sized underarm gussets.

VO2 CHEST PANEL:
A central panel of 3mm material laminated with our A-FLEX material maximizes stretch during respiration and improves comfort.

LOWERED COLLAR
Our curved closure flap reduced rear collar height improving comfort and reducing chaffing

SINGLE SEAM TUBE LEGS:
Our tube construction in the lower leg, combines A FLEX material with a single seam to maximize the flexibility and promote a quick release from your suit in the transition. Liquid taping on the internal seam reinforces and allows you to cut the leg to your desired height.

KNEE FLEX PANELS:
Our 2 mm KNEE FLEX panels assist with knee flexion by reducing bunching behind the knee and improve functionality when you need to run to T1.

A- GRIP PANELS:
A textured forearm print onto our high stretch jersey allows the swimmer extra feel for the water and additional grip in the propulsion phase of the stroke.
