Huub Archimedes III 3:5 Wetsuit

The third incarnation of the groundbreaking Archimedes, the suit that redefined buoyancy profiles to suit the needs of the modern triathlete, the Archimedes 3 again takes the expectations of a wetsuit and its material components and shatters the mould, never mind breaking it. With never before seen technology, expectations challenged and conventional materials re-engineered, the Archimedes 3 leads the way when it comes to triathlon wetsuits.


The Archimedes 3 is a suit for the triathlete wanting a sleeveless 'no suit' feel, in a full-bodied wetsuit. Perfect for those seeking maximum comfort and efficient stroke technique. For those wanting to push past the boundaries of neoprene and discover the benefits of never-before-used composite material. Each Huub wetsuit has been rigorously developed for a particular stroke style by expert swimming coaches Swim Smooth and heavily tested by real swimmers at their test centre in Perth, Western Australia. The Archimedes is equipped with +43 Foam, a new generation of material exclusively from HUUB. Through vigorous testing, HUUB has seen that dimples and contours deliver no benefit to performance and have finally created a material that is lighter and more buoyant. The result? A groundbreaking 43% more (than standard neoprene) buoyant foam. Differing newton values of buoyant materials deliver graduated buoyancy profiles around the thighs, hips and lower quads to ensure the correct balance with the bodies centre of buoyancy. This provides a flatter, more streamlined and faster suit profile in the water, resulting in more buoyancy and a hydrodynamic profile. Developed in partnership with Innovate-UK, the Measurement of Active Drag (M.A.D) is the ultimate measurement - the holy grail of data for swimmers. Buoyancy is key, and the correct buoyancy in the right amount and location has been the emphasis of the hundreds of test runs on the M.A.D System.

With the inception of the original bicep release, HUUB were able to assist correct arm positioning and bicep expansion to allow a natural bent arm state for recovery and catch. HUUB have now taken this one step further by also applying this technology to the tricep. A more relaxed fabric covers both the tricep and bicep areas, offering benefits for arm positioning through the stress of catch and pull, and enhancing the recovery phase by allowing a relaxed arm position with a high elbow and less swing. With less tension, less fatigue, more comfort and more efficient stroke alignment, the Bicep Release just went 360. For a comfortable fit, the Archimedes is designed with a low neckline that won't fold or restrict your breathing or flexibility. Making your transitions in triathlons much slicker and efficient, the innovative Breakaway Zipper will allow you to quickly remove your wetsuit, saving you crucial seconds to push you beyond your opponents.

If you have sharp nails, wearing gloves is recommended to prevent them from snagging on the material and potentially causing damage to it. Specially designed to keep you comfortable, protected and enhanced in open water, the construction and feel of the wetsuit will mean that no outdoor water is a barrier. HUUB recommends that if you are on the border of two different sizes, going a size up rather than down would result in a better fit. It is vitally important to get a close fitting wetsuit. Once you have an optimally fitted wetsuit on it feels like a second skin which is what makes it so effective when you are in the water. But with a garment that fits so tightly, the challenge is in how to get it on without damaging the suit or chafing or trapping your skin. Adjusting the suit to fit your body comfortably so that it doesn't cause discomfort whilst you are swimming also needs a little practice.
