Blueseventy - Helix
Built using all newLIFT technology this suit puts any swimmer in an efficient downhill swimming position. In addition to this cutting edge technology, the thick 5mmYamamoto Aerodome core structure, gender specific side panels, proprietaryTST panels, quick exit legs and the iconicreverse zipper work together to create the mostflexible andcomfortable suit possible
The HELIX is built on a 5-5-4 pattern, centralising core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the body. The chest and torso panels utilise super buoyant 5mm Yamamoto Aerodome to keep the hips high and promote an efficient downhill swimming position.
VO2 CHEST PANEL
The redesigned split chest construction naturally and anatomically accentuates the lungs, producing the optimal amount of buoyancy while maximising stretch during respiration.
Friction free neck design with lower profile and more sighting freedom than any other suit.
LAYERED INSULATION FOAM TECHNOLOGY (LIFT)
The new HELIX benefits from extra lift at the back legs from ultra buoyant NBR foam sandwiched between premium Yamamoto rubber and jersey liner. This panel technology allows us to strategically place high buoyancy sections at the back legs, lifting the suit up in the water.
TORSIONAL STRETCH TECHNOLOGY (TST)
The distinct blue panels of the HELIX have been a standout feature since the first model was released in 2006. For 2018 they further advanced this technology by pairing the premium Yamamoto 40 cell blown blue rubber with ultrastretch jersey to provide amazing arm and shoulder mobility.
Premium Yamamoto 40 cell arm and arm gussets provide the flexibility and comfort of a second skin with the speed and propulsion of a full suit
Body mapped, gender specific 3mm Fit Panels contoured for an improved fit on land and excellent rotation in the water
Highly flexible 100% nylon ultra-stretch jersey is lighter and features a 35% improvement in elongation compared to the previous jersey.
Unisex isn't good enough. Fit and feel are everything. Just ask the amazing female athletes that helped blueseventy develop their women's specific range. blueseventy obsess over the fine details of all of their women's suits: smaller wrists and ankles, longer zippers to make them easier to get in and out of, and a lowered neckline to provide superior comfort and reduced chafing
