On April 22nd, deboer wetsuits announced the release of their Fjord 1.0 and Flōh 1.0 suits. Joining the deboer team is Jan Frodeno, an Olympic gold medalist and two-time Ironman and 70.3 world champion. “You need to get a lot of things right to make a good wetsuit,” says Frodeno. “The thing I love the most about deboer wetsuits is the flexibility… The design and the cut of the deboer wetsuits allow me to use a more natural stroke and bring my swimming technique from the pool into the open water.”

deboer wetsuits partners with Jan Frodeno.

Alex de Boer is the founder of deboer wetsuits and has been involved in the sport since his first triathlon at the age of 25. After starting his own Ironman wetsuit distribution company, de Boer began developing an idea to create his own business. Now with the development of the Fjord, Flōh and Tsunami (swimskin), de Boer couldn’t be more thrilled of their partnership with Frodeno. “We understand the precision and rigour that Frodeno puts into his preparation every time he toe’s the start line,” says de Boer. “We echo Jan’s attention to detail, and are proud provide him with the Fjord 1.0 and Flōh 1.0 wetsuits, and the Tsunami swimskin.”
