Triathlon Wetsuits Repair and Care

Triathlon Wetsuits are specialist pieces of equipment and are designed to be as efficient as possible through the water, unfortunately to make them efficient and fast the materials used can sometimes be more delicate and over the life of your wetsuit accidents happen and damage can occur. It is always best to try and get these issues fixed as soon as possible so a minor nick doesn't develop into a large tear.
All you need to do is pop your wetsuit into store, where we will perform an initial inspection at no cost and advice or recommend which repairs or alterations will work. There is NO NEED TO BOOK- pop in at your convenience, depending on what needs doing it can either be a 5 minute job or turned around between 2 -7 days

What can I do to prolong the life of my wetsuit?
There are some easy things you can do every time you use your wetsuit to protect it and prolong its life;
- Always be careful when putting your suit on, try not to dig your finger nails in, stand on it on a rough/sharp surface or over stretch the neoprene. Try and use the pads of your fingers to put the suit on or best wear a pair of thin cotton gloves
- Whilst in your suit try to keep away from sharp edges or other hazards that might damage your suit
- When you have finished always peel the suit inside out of your body and rinse in fresh water as soon as possible. Try to dry your suit out of direct sunlight where possible and always ensure it is dry before storing.
- Don't leave your suit hanging by a coat hanger for too long as over time this will stretch the shoulders especially if wet. The best way to hang a suit is folded over a bar/hanger
- Use a specialist wetsuit shampoo every now and then dependant on usage
