Roka’s Maverick X2 Core Exoskeleton Wetsuit Is Made To Win Triathlons

When it comes to swimmers and triathletes, being able to take on the waterway in a functional, performance-focused wetsuit can make a world of difference. It might not seem like the most intuitive frame of mind, but a suit’s buoyancy, efficiency, and stiffness can put its wearer in a much better position, whether that be in training, competition, or otherwise. Now, Roka has introduced the Maverick X2 — a cutting-edge wetsuit built to catalyze the evolution of today’s water-savvy athletes.

Unlike many of the genre’s more traditional offerings, Roka’s Maverick X2 dives into the deep end of futuristic design. Inspired by the carbon layups and performance-focused inclusions in today’s most formidable bicycles, the brand’s engineers have found a way to enhance their waterborne offerings thanks to a revolutionary core exoskeleton, a proprietary taping technique, and a patented ARMS-UP design. In effect, the company has reached the precipice of performance, maximizing the transfer of power from a swimmer’s hips to their shoulders, and providing seven-percent more buoyancy than any alternative offering available on the market today. Of course, Roka has also taken mobility into account, eliminating shoulder restriction, allowing for more gracious side-to-side rotation, and increasing neck comfort, courtesy of the brand’s Yamamoto-sourced neoprene. Head to Roka’s website to pick up one of your own for $975.
