First sprint triathlon this weekend with 500m swim in the pool and first time wearing a Tri suit.
I have these suits as option:
- Orca 226 Short Sleeve Race Suit (https://www.orca.com/mens-226-short-sleeve-race-suit/)
- Castelli All Out Speed Suit (https://www.castelli-cycling.com/us/all-out-speed-suit/p/861810419P)
Both fit tight and well and freestyle swim movement is ok with the sleeves.
Castelli feels more smooth, comfortable and breathable (I guess feeling and performing better on bike and run but maybe soaking a bit more water in the swim?)
Orca feeling a bit more compressed (on the edge of being comfortable) and overall the suit definitely feels more wind and water proof. Therefore I assume it might glide better in the water, dries quicker but might not be as smooth through the wind on the bike (and a bit hotter maybe).
I lean towards Castelli (or keeping both ) but would be happy to hear your opinions and experiences.
