Triathlon or open water swimming wetsuits are designed to enhance buoyancy, reduce surface friction, and maintain body heat while providing a high degree of flexibility and comfort. Manufacturers accomplish this by using different types and thickness neoprene rubbers strategically placed throughout the suit, and coating the external surface area with low friction coatings.
The two most common designs of triathlon wetsuits are the Fullsleeve one piece version (long sleeves and long legs) and the Sleeveless one piece version (shorts sleeves and long legs).
