The ROKA Maverick wetsuit rocks

220 triathlon review

When the 220 triathlon magazine gives a score of 95%, somehow, the item becomes the most wanted and the one to have. Not convinced? I will only quote the verdict from page 76 of the October 2016 magazine: Hands down, the best wetsuit we’ve ever tried … But one that comes at a massive cost.

And they were right. At $900 (£700), this isn’t for everyone. But the price isn’t the only problem. You can’t find it in Europe.

Luckily, there is a great day in the US (and not so much in the UK) called Black Friday. I jumped on the opportunity to get a hand on the ROKA Maverick at more than half its price, just over 400$. My sister’s boyfriend living over there, and travelling back for Christmas, there was no problem getting it delivered.

Tests

While my tests were not done on the same day, there is a clear benefit wearing the ROKA wetsuit (I should have done another test with my old 2XU):

 May 3rd, lunch time

500m – 10:55 – 2:10/100m

500m – 11:04 – 2:12/100m

May 4th (Star Wars day!)

700m – 12:49 – 1m49/100m

450m – 8:15 – 1:50/100m
