Wetsuit Reservations cover one week surround each race weekend to allow ample time for drop off and pickup. The rental period is from Wednesday to Tuesday. The dates shown for reservations here represent the starting date of each rental period.
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 possibly enjoy the swim is with a triathlon wetsuit. The good news is that Gear West Bike & Triathlon rents wetsuits for just $40-60 per week. Wetsuits are also great for novice swimmers as they provide a significant amount of additional bouyancy in the water, making open water swimming a little less of a challenge.
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
Rental periods cover race weekends. The rental period is Wednesday through Tuesday, giving you plenty of time to try the suit out before your race. Rentals can be picked up at the shop on Wednesday (or later in the week), and must be returned by Tuesday. All rentals require payment in full at time of reservation. Rentals are non-refundable as your reservation means we are turning others who would like to rent wetsuits away.
If a date does not show up above, the suit you are viewing has already been reserved for that weekend. Dates shown here for reservation are from may 11th to September 28th. Please call us at 952-473-0093 for early or late season rentals.
Please review the posted Rental Agreement. You will be asked to sign a copy of this agreement at the time you pickup your wetsuit.
All wetsuit rentals must be picked up in store. If you are ordering only a wetsuit rental choose "Pick Up at Store" to avoid shipping costs. If you have placed additional items in our cart you may select another shipping option but your wetsuit will still be held for in store pickup.
