The 7th version of the Men's HELIX is hands down the best yet. We’ve maintained the legendary fit and feel that defines the HELIX while improving the paneling to encourage natural rotation and increase distance per stroke without increasing effort. Premium Yamamoto neoprene and liner materials combined with cutting edge design means the best just got even better.
Torsion Stretch Technology (TST): The distinct blue shoulders and back are designed to offer the ultimate flexibility throughout your full range of motion.
Distance Per Stroke:Improved paneling across the back increases reach to maximize distance per stroke.
Natural Rotation:Updated paneling and construction methods enhance body rotation naturally.
Layered Insulation Foam Technology (LIFT):Ultra buoyant foam sandwiched between the outer and inner layers on the back of the legs improve body positioning.
Aqua Feel Catch Panels:Hydrophobic, permeable textile catch panels return the feel for the water.
The Insides Count: Extremely flexible, 100% nylon ultra-stretch jersey is lighter and stretchier compared to other suits.
Quick Exit:Improved lower leg design decreases suit removal time to speed through transition.
Reverse Zipper:Eliminates chafing at the neck due to the position of the zipper head and allows for a lower more comfortable collar.
Firstly, it’s a great swimsuit.
This is my third Helix, I’ve yet to use it as I’m still using the old one for training.
The one thing I have found, with both previous Helix suits, is the blue neoprene wears away and then you have the black sticky rubber rubbing off onto your neck or any jacket you wear on top before getting into the early morning Wellington harbour!
I may need to get a Reaction with the slightly thicker Yamomato, but I wonder if you can make the Yamomato38 just a bit more robust so it lasts a bit longer.
Otherwise, you’ve got the design nailed.
Could do without upside-down zip,
Otherwise apart from slight neck chaffing I love it,thanks.
More than happy with the blue seventy team and my purchase.
Great tips and tricks.
A bit of chafing on the neck but nothing some body glide won’t fix. Great suit! Thanks again.
