In 2012 we’ve further enhanced our flagship Helix wetsuit with subtle pattern refinements and considerable material improvements. This year our Helix suit is designed to further impress with unparalleled flexibility while strategic materials and panels maximise buoyancy throughout the suit.
The Helix tiers buoyancy 5-5-4, centralizing Core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the swimmer.
CHEST: RATING 5mm
The Helix uses two layered chest panels that naturally and anatomically accentuate the lungs in producing the optimal amount of buoyancy for the swimmer in the upper body.
TORSO: RATING 5mm + AERODOME
The torso uses a core panel of Yamamoto Aerodome material to deliver a maximal central buoyancy zone in the suit, keeping the hips high and promoting an efficient downhill swimming position.
LOWER LEGS: RATING 4mm
Research with top swimmers has shown that our 4mm Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene legs deliver the perfect blend of buoyancy without limiting drive from the kick.
