Choosing the right wetsuit can make all the difference to your results, especially when you’re new to triathlon

Zoot Fuzion
 8 of 8 

Zoot Fuzion, £270

The Fuzion's price tag reflects the premium features and flexibility on offer. Its light and lowest-density rubber makes it a great choice for the more confident beginner. Zoot gave us a lot of technical information about how to measure co-efficiency of friction but all we wanted to know was how the suit could make us swim better. The coating reduces the Fuzion's friction in the water - you'll go faster for less effort. The collar is low at the front to preventing chafing. The Fuzion's cuffs have been updated and we did notice how little water entered here during the arm stroke. The arms seemed long; we liked the feeling of protection but they may be too long for some. It was a little tough to take off - plenty of Bodyglide would come in useful.

How it rated: 6/10
