The Openwater Vitalis TRN is the perfect wetsuit for swimmers who are just starting out in open water or who need a suit for daily, triathlon-oriented training. The high flexibility in the shoulders makes your first workouts in open water very comfortable, while its buoyancy will keep you feeling secure. The Vitalis TRN is one of the first openwater swimming wetsuits to be available in ladies plus sizes. Please consult the sizing chart to find the best fit or contact us at the bottom of the page for more advice.
- Flexibility: The highly elastic materials used in this wetsuit will provide you with more flexibility in all phases of the swim stroke, so you can enjoy total freedom of movement during your open water swimming sessions.
- Thermal Insulation: The 3 mm-thick neoprene in the torso and legs will provide you with the necessary thermal insulation so that you can extend your adventures at sea without worrying about low temperatures.
- Neutral Buoyancy: The 3 mm panels will allow you to maintain a neutral buoyancy, improving your position and allowing you to move through the water quickly.
Care and Cleaning:
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after each use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, make sure prevent it from holding onto too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage the materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being stretched for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped over a hanger from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any kind of tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders (Apex Flex or Apex Flow), it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
1) If your suit has Velcro, avoid contact between the Velcro and the inner lining of the wetsuit, as it will damage the fibers in the material. Keep the Velcro covered with the provided fabric patch or make sure that the Velcro is closed, so that the rough part of the Velcro does not damage the inside of your suit.
2) For all suits, especially those made with neoprene, be careful not to damage the neoprene material with your nails when putting on or taking off the suit, as this type of damage is not covered by our warranty policy.
3) Triathlon and open water suits have been designed specifically for swimming. We cannot guarantee correct functioning of the wetsuits for other activities. Any damage to the wetsuit resulting from use in activities other than swimming is not covered by our warranty policy.
4) Avoid leaning on or coming into contact with any surfaces (especially rough ones) while wearing your wetsuit.
