According to a release from TYR, “Top triathletes around the world are already praising the benefits of the TYR Hurricane Freak of Nature. Andy Potts, who was first out of the water at the 2010 and 2011 Ironman World Championships, calls the Freak of Nature’s expanded ROM zones “otherworldly effective”, while 4x Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington has said it is “far and away the most amazing wetsuit I have ever had the privilege to swim in.” Racing in the Freak of Nature for the first time, TYR’s Amanda Stevens was first out of the water at 2011 Ironman Arizona.”
In addition to Wellington and Potts, other key athletes that will race in TYR’s Hurricane Freak of Nature wetsuit include reigning 2011 Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander, 2010 Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, and Ironman Champions Julie Dibens and TJ Tollakson.
We feature the TYR Freak of Nature in our “What’s New” section of our January 2012 issue, and will do a full review of the new suit in our 2012 March Buyer’s Guide.
