The Ex-Demo wetsuit grading from A to D is based on the aesthetic standard of the wetsuit. It will not affect its actual performance. Ex-Demo products have a 30 day warranty.
Grade A1 – Like new wetsuit. May arrive without original packaging.
Grade A – Almost as good as new. Some may have been used for sizing purposes, some may or may not still have the labels attached.
Grade B – Very good condition. These wetsuits will have been used more frequently for sizing than grade A. Will have the odd fingernail mark or some fading of printing in certain areas.
Grade C – Some small patch repairs may have been made to these suits, all carried out by our specially selected company based here in the UK. There may be some fingernail marks from fitting or the printing may show signs of fading or peeling.
Grade D – Suits in this category are similar to those in grade C. However they have had larger repairs carried out, usually panel repairs, replacements. These sections may be in a different colour neoprene, but this does not affect their performance in any way. There may be some fingernail marks from fitting or the printing may show signs of fading or peeling.
Creating a junior triathlon wetsuit for the stars of tomorrow left us with a few challenges.
The key to the junior triathlon wetsuit, after consultation with coaches, swim experts and human movement specialists was flexibility, comfort and warmth. So there is your balance, more flexibility and lighter neoprene but keeping warmth in due to less body fat and more susceptible to cold body make up.
We addressed this by investigating the best quality materials in combination with highest grade “Plush” linings which deliver increased warmth to the backing of a thinner and lightweight 3mm chest and 4mm thigh and hips neoprene.
Good body position is not a major weakness in junior athletes, but good practice in a wetsuit will assist pool swim events which are the majority for junior athletes.
By taking a 3:4 combination we have managed to retain the incredible flexibility while delivering the benefit in position and sensation of a slightly raised leg position that works with young females and males without over compensating for natural buoyancy.
• Incredibly flexible and durable Smoothskin neoprene
• Flexible superstretch lining and facing in key stretch-reach points.
• Insulation lining for young healthy fat void bodies
• Superstretch ankles for ease of release in transition
• 2mm superstretch sleeves
• 3:4 Buoyancy combination delivers natural buoyancy with body alignment enhancment
