Our aim is to create better products combining research, science and reality.
HUUB has 4 decades worth of experience gained in the field of endurance sports (yes, we've done the miles, but still have the passion!). Focussing wholly on the athlete and maximising performance and comfort, we'll explore both the odd and the conventional to create the best. We are not slaves to fashion, but to form, fit and performance. We believe quite simply that we have delivered what competitors want. What's more, we know our suits work, because the science says so.
The HUUB team understand the specialist technical and scientific fields associated with triathlon, including hydrodynamics and swim stroke analysis. From smart scientist Huub Toussaint, clever Swim Smooth guys Adam Young and Paul Newsome to pragmatist Dean Jackson, we are focused on bringing cutting edge innovation to our products, whilst retaining a sense of reality and accessibility.
It was the goal of the team to create a suit that gives a true HUUB experience at a price that is accessible. We have improved the first Aegis in comfort, speed and usability. The Aegis has earned it’s place in the line of HUUB products.
A suit offering full smoothskin and 3:5 ratio buoyancy. Japanese smoothskin materials designed for low drag co-efficiency.
Unrivalled 3mm neoprene for correct buoyancy level and all overbody flexibility. High stretch lining combined with thinner and more flexible outer smooth skin.
Neoprene flexibility, thickness and stretch combination unmatched in the industry.
Multi-panel shoulders and chest designed to allow neoprene grain stretch that conforms to body shape and stretch.
Speed cut ankle for easy release in transition.
Large velcro contact area for neck comfort and adjustment.
Break-away Zipper for the fastest transition.
Newly added Low Neck Line
We know we have the most comfortable neck in the wetsuit industry. We don’t fold and stitch, we refuse to create a tourniquet of rubber to restrict breathing and flexibility... we stood alone and we will stand by this simple and effective design.

When looking at the size chart, we recommend that you firstly use the weight in KG for the most accurate body fit. We suggest you choose a size based on as close to the top end of each weight as you can get. Although important in the sizing decision, height is considered as the second choice after the weight.
As an example, if you are a Male at 67kg and 6'0", we would suggest the SMT size, even though you are a little taller than that specified.
If in any doubt, please Contact Us with your height, your weight in KG and the wetsuit model you are considering.
Possibly the most important piece of equipment come race day is your swim goggles. A piece of equipment so many of us take for granted, yet without them, all of our preparation and training is wasted. It's time to take your goggles seriously, and really understand what is needed on race day.
Wouldn’t it be great if most events started in the middle of the day, the sun high, everyone warm and the light as good as it can be. Sadly the length of events and road closure timings mean a 7am start isn’t out of the ordinary, and as we all know the light 30 minutes after the gun goes off is very different and even more so as the morning progresses.
“Aphotic” from HUUB, our first swim goggle that gets darker or lighter through Photochromatic technology during the race without you even noticing. A self regulating lens that delivers the comfort and vision needed to maximise your sighting and assist your swim.
“Photochromatic” Clarity of vision aids sighting and allows you to move around obstacles and other swimmers even when you swim into the sun, or with your back to the sun. These incredible lenses adjust perfectly and take only 160 seconds to go from clear to dark delivering ultimate performance for every turn of every buoy.
Special patented photochromic dyes that cause the lens to activate, or darken, when exposed to ultraviolet rays from sunlight. When the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back. As light conditions change, the level of tint adjusts, offering the right tint at the right time.
Available in two colours at launch, the “Aphotic” swim goggle is the first step from HUUB to “Goggle perfection” suitable for use in door and outdoor and in any light condition.
Designed to fit the face perfectly with a density of silicon and TPR matched to create a perfect fit and a feather like feel even on the most interesting of facial profiles.
For a great swim you need a comfortable fit and the ability to see as much as possible while having as much light as possible blocked out when the sun is high or water reflection is optimal. Supplied in a clam shell zip goggle case.
