CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW KONA3 WETSUIT!!
KONA3 wetsuits are for athletes by athletes! Built for speed made to race! Our wetsuits will keep you warm while swimming in cold open water. Our suits also provide additional buoyancy to make you safer and keep your body in the correct most efficient hydrodynamic position during the entire swim. Your swim split is GUARANTEED to be faster. With flexibility through the arms and shoulders in mind, all of our wetsuits are made with only the best Yamamoto #40 neoprene with SCS coating (super composite skin) which has been proven to reduce passive drag.
Congrats on your purchase of your new KONA3 wetsuit!! In order to keep your suit in the best race-ready condition, please rinse out in cold or warm fresh water after each use!! Allow your suit dry inside out, away from direct sunlight, once the inside material has dried turn it back right side out. In order to avoid pulling or deforming the thinner shoulder area of your suit do not hang your suit from the shoulders with a regular hanger. We recommend draping your suit by the thicker neoprene in the waist area over a hanger such as this HangPro Wetsuit Hanger Try and avoid or limit chlorine pool use as much as possible as this will reduce the life of you suit. Do not leave in direct sunlight or hot vehicles for any extended length of time.
USE OF LUBRICANT
In order to get your suit of faster in T1 a lubricant such as body glide around the wrist and ankle area works great!! A lubricant will reduce any possible chafing points. DO NOT use petroleum based products like Vaseline!!
