The 7th version of the HELIX is hands down the best yet. We’ve maintained the legendary fit and feel that defines the HELIX while improving the paneling to encourage rotation and increase distance per stroke. Premium Yamamoto neoprene and liner materials combined with our cutting edge design means the best just got even better.
Material: 97% Yamamoto Neoprene, 3% Nylon
Torsion Stretch Technology (TST):
The distinct blue shoulders and back are designed to offer the ultimate flexibility throughout your full range of motion.
Distance Per Stroke:
Improved paneling across the back increases reach to maximize distance per stroke.
Updated paneling and construction methods enhance body rotation naturally.
Layered Insulation Foam Technology (LIFT):
Ultra buoyant foam sandwiched between the outer and inner layers on the back of the legs improve body positioning.
Aqua Feel Catch Panels:
Hydrophobic, permeable textile catch panels return the feel for the water.
The Insides Count:
Extremely flexible, 100% nylon ultra-stretch jersey is lighter and stretchier compared to other suits.
Improved lower leg design decreases suit removal time to speed through transition.
Eliminates chafing at the neck due to the position of the zipper head and allows for a lower more comfortable collar.

Top of the line and it shows. Love it.
Great design and cut, flexibility and comfort is great. The arm panels for "feel of the water" make it cold in cooler waters though and I'm not convinced of the benefit. Can't fault the suit in manufacturing quality or fit - absolutely perfect.
I have a broad upper body, I have found it difficult to find a wet suit that fits me, specifically my shoulders. This wet suit fits great, with great range of motion. It’s also easy to get on and off, though some dawn patrol mornings I struggle with the zipper
Everything it promises
I am swimming in Alaska in our coldest lake water year in 19 years. I was able to try on BlueSeventy suits to determine the correct size. The suit fits well and does everything it promises. It also is warm enough for me to tolerate the lakes up here. The shoulder material is my favorite feature. I have full range of motion and notice no restriction. I am a tall girl, and I wish they had a women's tall option, but as soon as I'm in the water, I forget to worry about the length.
