Anyone who's ever done an early season triathlon in Minnesota knows how cold our lakes can be in the spring. For that matter, anyone who has done any triathlon in Minnesota during any time of year knows how cold our lakes can be throughout the entire season. Much of the time, the only way to enjoy the swim is with a triathlon wetsuit. The good news is that Gear West Bike & Triathlon rents both sleeveless and full sleeved wetsuits.
The wetsuit rental period is Wednesday through Tuesday, giving you plenty of time to try the suit out before your race. Reserve your suit early. We have a full size-run of both men's and women's wetsuits, however we do run out during popular race weekends.
All rentals are listed by size and weekend available in our online catalog. Rent Here.
Sleeveless Wetsuits are easier to get on and some people feel less chest restriction because of the open shoulders. Sleeveless suits are not as warm as full sleeved suits and have slightly less buoyancy.
Full Sleeved Wetsuits are warmer than sleeveless wetsuits and provide slightly more buoyancy. However, it is important to try on full sleeved suits. If the torso does not fit your body you may feel impingement in your shoulders and swim stroke.
