The swimmers favorite  : MACHV.5


Redesigned for 2018, the swimmers favorite MACHV.5 is faster than ever with enhanced comfort to go the distance.  The MACHV.5 model is fitted with improved shoulder flexibility. New to the market, the 0.5mm neoprene is ultra-thin giving the swimmer the "bare sensation" and allowing for a great range of motion through the back and shoulders. Finer details have also been added to the suit to improve body position in the water and reduce water friction while giving extra propulsion. To make the wetsuit lighter, more buoyant the inside lining of the MACHV.5 has been treated with Teflon, this treatment avoids water absorption.

Product details

Swimming is unlike any other sport.  It is unique in its training methods and its physiological demands on the athlete.  Every small and intricate detail of technique counts! From the positioning of the head and body to the different phases of a swim stroke,  breathing and cadence. These are just a few elements that when done correctly and in concert can give a swimmer huge gains in the water.

We at Dare2Tri understand that going faster is not an easy process but rather a lifelong journey.  For the average Joe  swimming can be intimidating, leaving one not knowing where to start with limited pool time.   Whether  a top level swimmer or newcomer to the sport, everyone seeks improvement through logging more pool hours, technical work, nutrition, and looking to the market for the latest products to enhance their swim times.     

The competitive and growing market has positively challenged us to research, produce and test a suit that delivers more speed than we have seen.  Dare2Tri has one mission to make you go faster.  Our new MACHV.5 has been chosen by swimmers. Their main needs were increasing their swim efficiency by even more flexibility. By reducing the thickness of the neoprene in key areas, Dare2Tri now offers speed as never seen before on the market.

Technical features

Details: from collar to ankle

Flexibility:
Dare2Tri has reduced  the neoprene thickness in the arms by 2/3.  While the new MACHV.5 does not look much different from its predecessor, the newest  wetsuit enhancements improve flexibility, durability and reach.  The latest MACHV.5 is equipped with an ultra thin 0.5mm Duraflex   neoprene reinforced with an Ultra Flex lining throughout the arms, shoulders and under arm. This gives the swimmer a 360° rotation of the arm with zero resistance, therefore allowing the swimmer to get more reach with less effort.  When swimming greater distances, this benefit is multiplied as it reduces upper body fatigue.

Buoyancy:
Unlike any other wetsuit in the market we looked at the impact the buoyancy. We find that a lighter wetsuit does give even the best swimmers more speed. Therefore we decided to test our suits with a Teflon coating (C8) and the results were significant. Therefore top (long distance) Olympic open water swimmers chose to wear the MACHV.5
Water Friction:
Similar to the laws of aerodynamics where cyclists use equipment to minimize the surface area they present to the wind, swimmers can also benefit from the smoothness of the neoprene to reduce drag and improve hydrodynamics. Dare2Tri 's flagship wetsuit, the MACHV.5, has a unique and exclusive “Glide Skin “coating. The "Glide Skin" coating is a non-washable zero friction coating that seals the cells of the smooth skin minimizing water friction. Further the MACHV.5 seams are smooth and in line with the direction of water flow to reduce drag. (close up Photo glide skin)
Body Position:
In order to minimize drag, swimmers must create as little resistance to the water as possible by maximizing body positioning. When developing the MACHV.5, we spent considerable time testing and analyzing the body position in the water, at the Swim Lab, against the drag being produced. Studies concluded that body positioning is controlled by the buoyancy in the hips and stability through the core versus buoyancy in the legs. With this useful data, Dare2Tri designed stability panels in the wetsuit to provide more buoyancy than any other part without exceeding the maximum allowed thickness for competition. The MACHV.5 boasts increased compression around the mid-section and core to provide stability so that the swimmer can hold better form for longer in the water. While the thickness and density of the neoprene are important for buoyancy, the amount and positioning of panels, as well as the Ultra Flex lining used, are key factors to optimizing body position in the water. It is commonly known that neoprene is measured in cell density. The greater the number of cells, the more buoyant and stretchable the neoprene; however, it is also softer and less durable. The MACHV.5 has the 'right' mix of neoprene used with varying cell values in critical panels of the suit along with the use of our "Glide Skin" coating making this wetsuit buoyant, flexible and durable. The MACHV.5 does not exceed the maximum 5mm thickness according to ITU, ETU, WTC regulations! .
Water Friction:
Similar to the laws of aerodynamics where cyclists use equipment to minimize the surface area they present to the wind, swimmers can also benefit from the smoothness of the neoprene to reduce drag and improve hydrodynamics. Dare2Tri 's flagship wetsuit, the MACHV.5, has a unique and exclusive “Glide Skin “coating. The "Glide Skin" coating is a non-washable zero friction coating that seals the cells of the smooth skin minimizing water friction. Further the MACH4S 0.5 seams are smooth and in line with the direction of water flow to reduce drag..
Propulsion:
Force is equal to the rate of change of momentum. In other words, creating force leading to movement is produced by the arms, legs, body and the rotation of the body. The MACHV.5 has integrated "Grip Panels" in the forearms to help you apply greater force and pull back on the water for longer with a complete follow-through. The “Grip Panels” allow water to circulate between the ribs on the forearm, allowing the swimmer to catch and pull against the water more efficiently thereby generating more force. The MACHV.5 has gone one step further and have integrated "grip panels" on the shins of the legs to enhance the swimmer's propulsion and kick. Vertical movement of the legs translates into a vertical and diagonal force which results in forward movement.
Grip panels: 2.5mm
The MACHV.5 is equipped with grip panels on the inside of the forearms and on the shin. The ridges in the grip panels ensure low water turbulence, creating better propulsion around the forearms and lower legs. This ensures a stronger arm and leg stroke, and therefore a more effective swimming stroke.
Upper chest panel: 2.5mm
This 2.5mm thick upper chest panel enables you to lie in the water without a hollow back, allowing you to generate an effective thrust from the hips with your leg stroke. This panel also ensures extra freedom of movement and space during your recovery stroke. This is clearly noticeable, especially over long distances.
Main body panel: 5mm
The 5mm thick main chest panel ensures buoyancy, which makes you go faster and gives you a better lying position in the water, delaying the onset of fatigue. The ITU and ETU, as well as Ironman and Challenge, have imposed a maximum thickness of 5mm. By using our 44 cell rubber we have further increased the airflow inside. This way, we do not exceed the thickness but generate even more buoyancy.
Body panel stability
The body panel is made in such a way that it ensures you will lie tightly in the water tightly, the compression ensures a stable position in the water, as well as less body volume, which means lower resistance. The lining on the inside is a 4-WAY Super Stretch, which is, however, a little less stretchable due to the aforementioned, and especially because this prevents water from accumulating around the torso in the event that water enters the wetsuit – the latter would make the suit, and you, heavier, causing you to lie lower in the water, and reducing speed.
Stability panels: 5mm for men, 4mm for women
The so-called stability panels on the hips are new in the MACHV.5. These stability panels help you adopt the ideal swimming position in the water (for less experienced swimmers) or support this position (advanced swimmers). These 5mm panels and the 2.5mm thick upper chest panel enable you to lie in the water without a hollow back, allowing you to generate an effective thrust from the hips with your leg stroke.
From the upper leg to above the knee: 5mm
In order to prevent the legs from sinking down especially over longer distances, the upper leg panels are 5mm thick, and the embossed V shapes here also ensure acceleration.
Knee panels: 2.5mm
The front as well as the back of the knee is equipped with 2.5mm Glide Skin 4-way Super Stretch, as this simplifies the leg stroke.
Lower leg Aqua grip panel: 3.5mm
The MACHV.5 is equipped with Aqua grip panels on the shin. The ridges in the grip panels ensure low water turbulence, creating better propulsion around the forearms and lower legs. This ensures a stronger arm and leg stroke and therefore a more effective swimming stroke.
Calf panel: 2.5mm
The calf panel is equipped on the inside with our unique 4-way pre-stretched Super Stretch, which together with the Glide Skin on the outside and the obliquely cut opening, makes it possible to remove the wetsuit without any effort at all.
Back leg panel: 3.5mm
With a thickness of 3.5mm, this panel makes it possible to achieve a perfect water position. If it were thicker, it would cause a hollow back and if it were thinner it would cause too low a position in the water.
Back panels: 3.5mm
The back panels are not only there in order to ensure extra buoyancy, but they are an extension of the shoulders as well. This is why 3.5mm was selected with 4-way Super Stretch lining in order to obtain more freedom of movement as well as the additional buoyancy.
YKK zip
The zips have a metal runner, which ensures gradual opening and closing. Following a survey held among our Dare2Tri Int followers, we decided to have the zip closing from the bottom up. The vast majority indicated this is to be preferred to a top to bottom zip.
