WHY BUY THIS PRODUCT?
This suit will help you swim faster in triathlons that do not permit wetsuits. Unlike similar "swimskins" that require you to remove them after the swim portion, the Liftfoil, with its Floatpad™, is designed so that you can swim, then bike, then run, all in complete comfort and without having to change. This pad floats and stretches which means it can be used as a race piece in a triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes. It has no pockets and is ideal for shorter triathlons where you do not need pockets, and where you ultimate goal is to finish faster without ever changing. It also works well for longer triathlons that do not permit the use of wetsuits. In this case, we suggest the use of a fuelbelt, or changing from swim to bike to run given that the time required to change is minimal compared to the rest of the race.
This speedsuit has no rubberized material, no polyurethane, and no neoprene. It abides to WTC's recent ruling on swimskins, speedskins, swim apparel...whatever WTC wants to call it.
The Liftfoil has no pockets and no lining. It is designed to help you swim faster during non-wetsuit swims. Designed with a front zipper (16-inch YKK® zipper) which allows you to ventilate by unzipping during the run. Our front-zipper design for men swims better and faster than rear zipper suits. We are the only company that has figured out how to do this so we are the only company with a front-zipper Speedsuit. Hydrolinear™ seamlines hug your body while allowing for maximum reach and glide in your stroke, with no friction against your skin.
Our tests have shown varied improvements of swim times of about 2-4 seconds per 100 meters, depending on the individual, over a conventional swimsuit. This translates to 1'00" for 1500 meters and 2'40" for a swim of 4000 meters. Of course, as with all our products, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Test it for yourself. If you do not find it performs to your expectations, you may return it for a complete refund.

coldblack®: Sun Reflector – UV Protector
Dark colors heat up stronger when exposed to direct sunlight compared to light colors. This no longer needs to happen! Now there is coldblack®, a special finishing technology for textiles which reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from UV rays.
coldblack® technology offers two innovative benefits:
1. Effective heat management
Light colored textiles reflect both visible and invisible rays of sunlight, meaning both heat and light. Dark colored textiles absorb both types of rays and therefore absorb heat. coldblack® reduces this absorption of heat rays, particularly in the case of darker colors, and in all types of textiles. The result is tangibly better heat management. Because textiles finished with coldblack® heat up less in all colors compared with material without a coldblack® finish.
2. Reliable protection from UV rays
The coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection (blocks 70% of UV rays) when applied to any textile in any color without affecting the look or feel of the product. As a result, textiles with coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.
