Zoot Ultra Tri Aero Skinsuit
Zoot in an American company that got their start in 1983 in Kona, Hawaii, the home of the Ironman Triathlon World Championships. They started making great performance apparel for elite athletes who were competing in these triathlons. The founders of Zoot noticed while watching the races that these triathletes needed something more functional and performance enhancing to race in and so Zoot Sports was born. The business took off in Hawaii and eventually made its way to the mainland where their product line has continued to expand ever since. With so much gear needed to purchase when getting ready for race day, Zoot Sports makes it a little bit easier for you by giving you just one suit that you can wear for all three legs of the triathlon.
The Zoot Ultra Tri Aero Skinsuit is a great piece of gear for those looking to participate in a triathlon. You can purchase this suit for both men and women and it gives you amazing comfort and great functionality. The seat of the suit gives you extra padding for the cycling part of the race and the snug fit helps with aerodynamics when you are running. You do not even need to purchase an addition wetsuit for the race, as this suit is designed for the swimming leg of the race as well. One suit for all three activities, no need to worry about having to change between each section of the race and wasting precious seconds. Customers love the great look, snug fit, and outstanding performance they get from the Zoot Ultra Tri Aero Skinsuit.

Something to keep in mind when choosing to use this tri-suit for your next race is that it does not give you some of the added benefits that a wetsuit will give you. There are no features to this suit that are going to help with buoyancy and form. If you are a beginner and need help with your form for the swimming part of the race then you may want to consider a wetsuit, but if you do not need that extra help then most recommend a tri-suit to save you time and keep you moving forward onto the next leg of the race.
The Zoot Ultra Tri Aero Skinsuit specifically is a great choice for triathletes. It gives you great protection from the elements and will keep the sun off of your skin. It provides you with great aerodynamics and breathability to help keep you cool when you are running in the hot sun. It features moisture-wicking technology to help keep you dry, both from your swim and from sweat. It is lightweight and comfortable, making it a great choice for your next triathlon.
The suit features extra padding in the front and rear to help ensure that you stay comfortable during the cycling leg of the race. It can get rather uncomfortable while sitting on the seat of your bike for too long and the padding in this suit will help ease some of that discomfort. The chamois gives you 8 mm of ultra density padding in the front and 3 mm of padding in the rear. The padding is not bulky at all and lightweight so it will not slow you down during the other legs of the race.
The suit features SeamLink stitching that helps give you a nice and snug fit, feeling almost like a second skin. The suit stretches with you so you do not feel like your movements are restricted and it will not slow you down. There is no need to worry about uncomfortable rubbing or chafing with this suit either as the stitching helps prevent that. In addition, the zipper has a soft finish zipper binding to help with comfort.
This tri-suit comes in sizes small through extra large so you can make sure that you can find something that will fit you as comfortable as possible. Zoot provides you with a sizing chart to help determine which size you will need. Customers have mentioned that this suit fits great and does not have any additional materials or fabrics that flap around and drag you down.
When purchasing the Zoot Ultra Tri Aero Skinsuit you can choose from a few different color options. For both men and women, you can pick the basic black and white color scheme. However, if you want something a little different, women can choose a black and pink suit and men have the option for either yellow and black or orange and black. The lack of color options, however, does not seem to deter customers from purchasing the suit, nor have they mentioned anything about wanting to see additional color options.
