What to Wear Under Your Speed Suit (Wet Suit)

Triathlon Event  Question in regards to speed suits. I recently bought a sleeveless speed suit for my first tri. The water is supposed to be in the the low 70’s so emp shouldnt be a problem. My question is do you wear a pair of tights underneath to strip down to at the transition area, or do you just pull down the top of the suit and leave it on for the rest of the race?

Triathlon Event  Hi Kyle,
Thank you for contacting!

Good question! We suggest that you wear a pair of jammers underneath the speed suit. Most people don’t wear speed suits through the entire race because they are tight and get you pretty hot.

Be well,
