Water is like air in many respects. Drag is omnipresent and is always trying to slow you down. As much as we work our bodies to be stronger and more efficient, the drag is still there. The Giordana NX-G swimsuit minimizes the drag you experience in the swim.
Designed to be worn over your shorts, jersey, doppio suit, or tri suit, it features Durable Water Repellant (DWR) treated fabrics that are designed to cling to the body, offers compression to keep your muscles fresh and stable, adds buoyancy to make your swimming more efficient.
It’s a skin suit for the swim leg of your tri’. There’s a rear zipper both for comfort and to minimize drag. Your back is protected from the zipper by an internal flap; it is easy to access thanks to an extended drawstring, and even stretches along with your body. The neck- and armholes are finished with a bonded, contoured fabric to lay flat without chafing. The leg hems are turned for both comfort and to stay in place. The legs are on the long side, 11.75 inches for the Men’s Medium and 11 inches for the Women’s Small, to offer more compression and buoyancy for the legs.
All panels are joined by 4 needle stitching to both better join the panels to maximize compression and reduce the likelihood of chafing to near zero.
The fit on this is pretty tight, as it needs to be. There is a mix of high and medium compression panels that shouldn’t be the easiest to pull over the body. If it takes a bit of work to get into it, then it fits well. The extra effort getting this wet suit on is more than paid back as your swim times drop while you feel better doing it. As this is a swimming garment, there is no chamois.
