The folks at Swim Smooth and HUUB (pronounced “hube”) Design went back to the drawing board and designed a wetsuit to address not just our shape but our body mechanics and movement as well.
Here’s what the HUUB Aura addresses:
- Balance – The Aura matches a woman’s natural buoyancy and body position in the water. Our hips and legs have more buoyancy than men so wearing a suit originally for men gives most women too much buoyancy in the rear. This makes for hips and legs bobbing up out of the water making for an unbalanced sensation. If you have a kick, kicking into the air isn’t that efficient.
- Shoulder Movement – Women suffer from shoulder fatigue more than men and part of this is fighting the restriction of the wetsuit in the shoulder area.
Read what women have to say about it. So far the wetsuit is available in Australia and the UK. but will hopefully hit the U.S. soon.
