With over 85% of triathlon competitors coming from a running, cycling or other sport background, blue seventy recognises that many athletes possess a denser leg make up due to well-exercised and established thigh muscles and dense calves. ‘Heavier legs’ leave the majority of triathletes at a distinct disadvantage in the first discipline. Their goal is to give the world a faster swimming experience, so the Axis suit has been developed with the focus on centralizing buoyancy and balancing out the buoyancy zones.
The body has a large buoyancy zone in the torso, two big air bags we know as the lungs! With such large natural floatation it makes sense for those with a buoyancy centred on the upper body, to focus the extreme additional suit buoyancy in the lower extremities. By placing higher buoyancy materials in the hips, thighs and lower leg the goal of ‘Balanced Buoyancy’ is achieved. By increasing the height of the lower body and lifting the legs and hips, the body is in a more streamlined position allowing for a more efficient swim stroke.
