Over 30 years ago, Quintana Roo developed the very first triathlon-specific wetsuit. While they never went away, they are launching a new line of high-performance suits featuring premium materials and innovative technologies to give you the ultimate swim experience. The HYDROseries draws on their experience in the water and aims to bring you the most advanced suit on the market.

To achieve the most natural fit and greatest performance, they’ve developed the HYDROseries suits with fewer seams. Why? When premium neoprene is welded and stitched together, the technological advantages diminish. Their research, development and interaction with top athletes has created what QR claim to be the most unique, natural suit design to date.

Quintana Roo strategically placed each seam to mimic the contours of the human anatomy. Intense creation, testing, refinement and passion have gone into the suits to deliver potentially the most advanced in triathlon.

“The next generation of superior triathlon swim gear is here – the HYDROsix is fast, comfortable and truly unrestrictive. With a minimal amount of seams, precision buoyancy enhancements and SuperStretch materials incorporated throughout, you’ll be able to move and breathe naturally for a swim that’s unmatched.”

“Gone are the days of feeling uncomfortable when swimming in your wetsuit. Engineered with top-of-the-line SuperStretch neoprene sewn into place with only 27 seams, the HYDROsix will conform to your body for natural breathability and comfort. The buoyancy profile of the suit and QR-specific Catch & Feel Panels help fine-tune your swim for essential rotation, turnover and speed. The HYDROsix keeps you stable from head-to-toe, all while allowing for a faster and more comfortable swim than any other suit on the market.”
