Description

Our absolute top model when it comes to the best wetsuits for men. Namely, this Calder Rapid for men. Created for experienced/good swimmers, where seconds, convenience, and full flexibility count. Packed with features such as YKK breakaway zip, 100% Yamamoto #39 neoprene, SCS surface coating for reduced water resistance, taped seams in legs and arms for durable stitching and Speed-cuff panels on forearms for better feeling on the water.

The Calder Rapid is constructed in the world's best neoprene, Yamamoto #39, as opposed to other types which are made on a base of oil, Yamamoto is made on a base of limestone. In addition to durability, it provides the very special flexibility in every nook and cranny of the suit.

The neoprene thicknesses are made in a special composition intended for better swimmers who need great flexibility and buoyancy, especially on the thighs. Therefore, in the Calder Rapid there is generally less buoyancy in the legs and on the chest than typical wetsuits, but in return the highest degree of flexibility in the arms. This is achieved with only 1.5 mm thick neoprene in the armpits and neck, 2 mm on the arms, 2.5 mm on the legs, 3 mm on the chest and back and 3.5 mm. on the thighs. In this way, the effortless swimmer will be able to lie high and naturally in the water, but still have the unique flexibility.

In addition, the Calder Rapid for men is equipped with

The suit's unique break-away YKK zip, which is only on the Calder Rapid, makes it lightning fast to get in and out of. A mesh cord is attached to this, which makes it easy to zip down the zip on the go.

The feeling of the water is especially important for experienced swimmers. Therefore, the 1.5 mm Speed-cuff panels on the forearms will feel like your own skin, as they attach the water to the arms and thus make the arm grip more powerful when you move your arms through the water. Reducing the buoyancy in the arms in particular will also result in less fatigue in the arms, as you are not fighting the natural buoyancy that a thicker neoprene will provide during a natural swim stroke.

A typical irritation is also the claustrophobic feeling that many people get around the neck when wearing a wetsuit. We have eliminated this by making the neckline low, just as the ultra-thin 1.5 mm Yamamoto #39 neoprene has also been used here, which provides an optimal mix between flexibility and longevity.

The Calder Rapid is of course also equipped with our special 2 mm transition panels on the inside of the lower legs, to be able to change into T1 lightning fast.

At the same time, the entire wetsuit has a smooth-skin surface treatment, which prevents water from penetrating the neoprene, and thus you avoid getting wet on the inside and the suit becoming heavy to swim in. The water, on the other hand, bounces off, which also minimizes the time for drying the wetsuit after swimming. The Smooth skin also lays down a protective layer that makes it resistant to nails or quick-removal of the wetsuit, which typically leaves annoying holes.

How to take the best care of your Calder Rapid wetsuit when cleaning and storing

The correct treatment of the wetsuit after each trip in the water is crucial for durability on the longer course. The neoprene in the wetsuit is damaged over time by too much salt (in the sea) or too much chlorine (in a swimming pool).

You should wash the wetsuit in cold water after each use and if it has become particularly dirty add a bit of pH-neutral soap to maintain the neoprene optimally.

Then it should be hung to dry until the moisture both inside and outside is gone before it is folded up / put away. This can either be done indoors (with good ventilation) or outdoors (but not in direct sunlight)

When the wetsuit is to be stored, it is important that you do not simply crumple it up. Instead, it should be hung on a hanger across the middle so that it does not fold on the most sensitive areas (shoulders, arms, legs) and the construction of the wetsuit is maintained.

How to best put on and take off the Calder Rapid wetsuit

    • Unzip the wetsuit completely at the back and fold the top part down
    • Insert one leg and pull it all the way through, followed by the other leg
    • With either gloves or without using nails, pull the wetsuit up in small sections over the hips so that it sits at the waist
    • Then pull it up further so that one arm can go all the way through and then the other arm, so that it fits snugly on the body
    • At the back, grab the long nylon cord and gently pull the zip all the way up
    • Close the Velcro flap at the top and secure the nylon cord at the start of the zip with the attached Velcro
