Care Instructions

GETTING IN AND OUT OF YOUR WETSUIT

An expert fitting of a 2XU Wetsuit is the first and foremost way to ensure its performance benefits are maximised. Learning and understanding the basic principles of getting in and out of your Wetsuit is also of significance in terms of saving valuable time when racing; particularly for triathlon transitions.

Practising removal technique in training, especially with a wet wetsuit, is of far greater benefit to an athlete than using unnecessarily large quantities of petroleum-based lubricant to assist with wetsuit removal.

Purchasing a 2XU Wetsuit at any 2XU Performance Centre (participating stores*), will ensure an expertly fitted garment, together with relevant advice when it comes to fit, wear and care.

PREVENTING CHAFE

2XU Wetsuits are engineered from a very high quality Japanese Yamamoto neoprene. The neoprene is at risk of breaking down if exposed (or over-exposed) to petroleum based lubricants. Non-petroleum based and water-based products are recommended. These include:

  • Body Glide
  • Lanolin
  • Papaw Cream
  • Any substance with ingredients such as beeswax combined with some sort of oil- olive oil, jojoba, sweet almond oil, avocado oil
  • A substance which consists of lipids- as these provide moisture, lubrication, and protection- and are plant based thereby adding nutrients and essential fatty acids

Products to avoid include:

  • Vaseline
  • Baby oil
  • Hair conditioner
  • Hair shampoo
  • Hair conditioner
  • Cosmetics

Applying excessive amounts of any substance is unnecessary. A small amount of the non-petroleum based lubricant on the neck directly under both ear lobes where friction with the wetsuit may occur- is advisable.

An athlete may also benefit from using this same lubricant in the underarm region, slightly above the rib cage on each side of the body, and also around the ankles, to further assist the removal of the wetsuit.

With experience, comes knowledge of any other area of the body which may need lubricant application to aid the wetsuit removal process.

WASHING AND RINSING

After exposure to salt water or chlorine, a 2XU Wetsuit needs immediate (or as soon as possible,) rinsing in fresh, cold water. This can be achieved by filling up a bath tub, a trough or a rubbish bin with cold water and fully immersing the wetsuit in the water. It’s best to rinse the wetsuit inside out to ensure sand and sediment is completely removed.

DRYING

The most efficient means to dry a 2XU Wetsuit is by allowing it to dry inside out, in the shade. The Wetsuit needs to be kept out of exposure to direct sunlight, and should not be hung while wet (the suit can stretch under its own weight). It’s best to spread the wetsuit out over a piece of outdoor furniture where its weight is equally distributed and the risk of any elongation is reduced.

STORAGE

During long periods of time when a 2XU Wetsuit is not being worn regularly (e.g. Winter; Triathlon/Open-Water Swim off-season,) it is best to lie the wetsuit flat and store in a dry area, e.g. under a bed. Alternatively, the Wetsuit can be folded and stored in a cool, dry area. Hanging the wetsuit is not recommended.

Wetsuits Fit Information

Your suit should fit adequately in terms of both your height and weight. In the case that you fit into more than one size, you should opt for the smaller size. While 2XU Wetsuits come in both men’s and women’s styles, some females prefer the fit of a men’s suit. This is fine.

On the arms, your wetsuit sleeves should finish at least one finger gap in distance from your wrist bone. This will ensure the suit is sitting high enough and does not pull on the shoulders.

In the legs, the wetsuit legs should finish ¾ of the way down your shin. This will ensure the suit is sitting high into the crutch. If sitting too low, the suit will pull on the top of the shoulders.

Around the neck, the wetsuit should be firm but not to the point that breathing is restricted. If the neck bunches at all, the suit is too big. The neck is the number one area water can enter the suit, so it needs to be secure.
