Zoot Wikiwiki Review Facts

Look in a thesaurus next to amphibious and you will find the Zoot Wikiwiki Wetsuit. Any swimmer or triathlete understands that gear can be a deal breaker. Compression assists in recovery and performance, but go too tight and you face restricted movement and difficult on/off transitions. Novice swimmers understand that the less experienced you are, the more buoyancy you need in a suit. The Zoot Wikiwiki wetsuit (Hawaiian for “Speedy Fast”) combines a perfect combination of the most hydrodynamic advanced materials from buoyancy panels to FLEXskin 0.55 mm. Built to improve speed by reducing drag, this suit not only allows a superefficient glide through the water but also aligns the body with the most effective swimming position utilizing AQUAlift buoyancy panels. No need to shave the arms when you wear the Zoot Wikiwiki, Super Composite Skin Nano hydrodynamic finish and a half millimeter thick neoprene masters this effect for you.

  • Gender-specific panels
  • Optimal Kick Design
  • Super flexible neoprene
  • Super Composite Skin Nano finishing
  • AQUAlift buoyancy pads for any level swimmer

Mind above matter is the struggle every swimmer encounters as their primal instinct body tends to drift vertically due to primal instinct.

Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

The Zoot Wikiwiki wetsuit is constructed from FLEXskin, a super flexible neoprene that is designed similar in the breathability function of all wetsuits, to keep a dry barrier of warmth against the body and a hydrophobic shell. The inside lining is a super stretchy, yet non-absorbent polyester.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

The Zoot Wikiwiki wetsuit is so sleek and comfortable it might feel more like a body paint competition than a swim race. While wetsuits should fit and feel like a second skin when in the water, nobody wants the struggle of tugging on or pulling off the second skin. Zoot has it covered as this Wikiwiki suit features COMFORTcell Platinum 88 % Nylon 12% Spandex liner, making the transition in or out of the suit the most comfortable. Taking design to a completely different level of perfection, there are even gender specific ergonomically placed panels to make everyone feel equally comfy. Forget fatigue, the Optimal Kick Design throughout the leg area is patterned to unite forces with the anatomy of the leg muscles. The neck panel, fuse welded with Super Composite Skin Nano finish, is designed for maximum comfort opting towards a zero water entry, zero constriction, and zero chafing. Upper arm panels are a micro-thin 0.5 millimeters and underarms are 1.5 millimeters, allowing a flowing restriction free shoulder rotation.
Size

Size

The most important factor when determining your size in this wetsuit is to focus not on your height, but keep your weight in mind when finding your fit on the sizing chart. The Zoot Wikiwiki wetsuit is available in six different size options: small, small tall, medium, large and x large. And one more significant finding- if you are a man, or woman, with exceptionally large hands, you might have a bit of a struggle with transitioning in and out of the arm cuffs.

Durability

How durable can anything be that is only 0.5 millimeters thick? This super thin neoprene can easily be snared by innocent fingernails. Zoot minimizes this risk by including a pair of gloves and mat for the transition. Generally speaking, if it’s super stretchy, it's super flimsy. However, the Super Composite Nano hydrodynamic finish on the Zoot Wikiwiki wetsuit is claimed to be the most durable coating on the market for wetsuits. Constructed using the highest glue and blind stitch technology, Zoot ensured this suit is not going to bust at any seam. Strategically placed Moontape reinforce maximum durability of this wetsuit.
