HUUB Norseman X-Treme LC Tri Suit
A unique suit created for the athletes of Norseman and other cold triathlon events. Featuring a wind-proof chest and torso panel to reduce the risk of wind chill after the swim. Unique design and finish lined topographic detailing to the front of the suit.
The Norseman is probably the most iconic race in our sport and without a doubt one that goes on the bucket list. It is unlike any other event, starting from a car ferry and finishing atop a mountain. The Norseman epitomises the meaning of extreme and challenging. Here at HUUB we are honoured to be the swim and merchandise partner for this year’s event taking place on August 5th 2017.
Research has shown that the body during the Norseman race is most susceptible to the cold straight after the swim when de-robing from your race wetsuit. Cold air temperatures teamed with riding against cold winds, significantly increases the chance of hypothermia before the race is even a quarter complete. To reduce the risk we have developed the world’s first wind proof thermal trisuit. Designed to help and manage body temperatures it reduces the risk of a DNF.
It’s not as simple as sponsorship and partnership between Norseman and HUUB, we see it as a research and learning exercise designed to test our development abilities. Norseman… to us there’s no finer triathlon in the sport.
This tri suit has a close body fit with front zip, side pockets for energy gels and a lightweight high density and low profile 3D chamois. Coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection when applied to any textile in any colour without affecting the look or feel of the product.
Low friction, lower weight, lower fluid and heat absorption combined with a fit pattern unique to HUUB we felt the days of research and testing have created a garment you'll never want to take off.
