Every advantage matters when you're swimming, but the most expensive wetsuits can cost as much as a round-trip ticket to the moon, so it's key to have an option like the Blueseventy Reaction Women's Wetsuit. It's not as space-age as the top-of-the-line Helix, but it costs about half as much and still delivers all the buoyancy, flexibility, and comfort you need to hit T1 in personal-record time. The Reaction isn't designed for beginners, by any means, so it doesn't waste too much time on enhancing proprioception (the exceptions are the ultra-thin Honeycomb forearm panels, which are designed to increase awareness of arm positioning, in turn boosting power, enhancing technique, and reducing injury risk). Instead, it focuses on buoyancy and flexibility, the characteristics most important to top-quality athletes.
that end, Blueseventy employed thinner Yamamoto neoprene on the arms and
lower legs, in addition to thin and stretchy Reactive Stretch Technology (RST) on the upper arms, deltoids, and shoulders. This provides serious mobility
in the water, along with the shoulder freedom that's essential for
powerful strokes. The RST panels are also coated with SCS, a hydrophobic friction-reducing layer that lets you cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. Thin 2mm side panels and gusseted underarms improve fit and ease core and shoulder rotation, while the
split VO2 chest panel is anatomically matched to the lungs, providing tons of stretch during respiration while maximizing buoyancy.
Ah, the "B" word. Buoyancy is perhaps the most important wetsuit feature for serious triathletes, as it reduces the percentage of your body
that's actually moving through the water, in turn minimizing drag and
maximizing efficiency. The Reaction is built on a 4-5-4 pattern,
concentrating buoyancy around the hips, lower torso, and upper
hamstrings, which helps you achieve an efficient and powerful "downhill"
swimming position (as well as a natural roll when breathing) so you can focus on propelling yourself forward and
not on raising yourself up and out of the water. This will save you time
and keep you fresher. Once you're out of the water, the single-seam tube legs and Aquaseal wrist gaskets allow for easy removal, and the liquid taping on the internal ankle seams lets you cut the legs to achieve the perfect fit.
