Huub Albacore Swimskin

The Albacore Swimskin is the combination of unparalleled industry expertise, unmatched hydrodynamics knowledge and the ability to test products far beyond any other triathlon or swimwear company. Here at HUUB we simply make you faster, through traditional and some very untraditional designs.


Constructed using a constrictor system, the Huub Albacore Swimskin works to ensure proper body alignment in the water by preventing twists and turns that may be detrimental to your swimming performance. A constrictor system limits unnecessary movements that increase drag. The effect is to enhance a more streamlined and controlled body position. Less snaking, less drag, less wasted energy and thus more speed - the key element of fast swimming is to control the drag of your body. With the constrictor system, Huub has managed to improve stroke efficiency by up to 4.5 seconds per 100m. The Albacore Swimskin has also been rigorously tested to ensure its buoyancy lives up to your high expectations; M.A.D systems are the ultimate measurement when it comes to swimwear testing and, it allows Huub to bring you a wetsuit that truly performs, time after time. Additionally, a high warp knit fabric has been used to deliver a level of compression to the Swimskin. The compression gradient helps to reduce your body mass and re-tune your centre of gravity so you can hold a stable position in the water. With a strong centre, you'll be able to achieve proper body alignment and the reduction in body weight allows you to increase your overall speed in the water. Completing the Albacore Swimskin is a lock-down zipper that provides an easy on/off.

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 tri suit 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 tri suit. 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.

For health and hygiene reasons, we are unable to accept the return of underwear that has been worn. *this does not affect your statutory rights.
