Feels like a second skin!
Posted by Larry on 24th Jun 2014
Used my new hybrid in Lake Tahoe yesterday on a 3 mile swim. It felt like a second skin. Great flexibility in the shoulders and arms with the ability to get full extension on each stroke. Water temp. about 62-63 degrees but would not know it in this suit. Minimal water got into suit given great fit. Buoyancy was great and well balanced. I sized up a size per chart as I'm long in the torso, short in the legs, and have big chest/shoulders. Good thing as this suit could not be smaller and still fit me. Challenging to get zipper up by myself but easy/peasy with a buddy zipping me up. I expect this will get easier as I lose a little more belly fat. Otherwise pretty easy to get on and real easy to get off.

Felt good and slid right on. I used wax but I think it didn't really need it as the neck area is so smooth. over all good fit. best to train in before using straight out of box for a race
Very comfortable, excellent suit!!

This is the only wet suit I have ever worn or tried on. I was a little worried to order something online without trying it on but I couldn't be happier with this suit. I tried it for the first time on race day and I was very surprised how buoyant this made me. I had no chafing or red marks, neck line was very smooth and comfortable. I would recommend this suit to anyone.
My first tri wetsuit. EXCELLENT!!!

This is the first and only triathlon wet suit I've owned or worn. But I am so in love with it. I'm a newbie swimmer, in the pool my legs sink (and so do I). Put on the Hybrid and the bouncy is amazing. My legs stay up, I float on the top of the water. It is SO MUCH more effortless to swim. I can glide more and worry less about sinking (although I will continue to work on that).
When doing freestyle I can actually forget that I'm wearing it. My upper body has full range of motion.
I did a ton of research on suits prior to purchase and set aside $600 to get a good suit. But in the end the Synergy Hybrid was the best suit at the best price. Highly recommend.
I didn't believe it!!

I can only compare this suit to what I have which is a b70 Helix. Little small for me so I ordered the M1. First swim I could tell it was more flexible than my other suit. It let a little more water in than I like, but I was doing flip turns in the pool. My first impressions were that it was okay, but not sure much better than the B70. Used my B70 the next day same distance and I was 2 minutes slower in it than the Synergy suit. Time and speed trumps all with the same effort so I am sold. I didn't feel like I was that much faster, but the clock doesn't lie. This suit is also very buoyant. It also comes off very easy. So overall because of the speed versus a very good suit, I am impressed and would recommend it.
Better than the rest

By far the best suit I have worn. I got it a few days ago and have had a chance to swim in it twice. I cant believe how much faster it is compared to my old B70 Helix. I read the reviews on Synergy on slow twitch and everyone seems so happy with their suits. Now I know why.

This suit is amazingly flexible. It fit me perfectly (165 lbs and 5.9 in a size M1). It helped me get balanced in the water and cut my swim time over a mile by nearly 10 minutes compared to swimming without this wetsuit. I am super impressed and very happy with my new suit.

this is an outstanding suit at a great value. I saw the video and recognized my buddy.. nothing like a friends recommendation.
the customer service was excellent too.
Fastest wetsuit ever!

I have to share that this suit is the fastest TRI wetsuit EVER! I am blown away by how flexible and buoyant it is and how well it fits. Easy to get into and out of.
Thanks for the upgrade!

This is a hell of a fast suit. I feel bad sharing this with potential competitors but the suit deserves a thumbs up. I do t know why more pros aren't using this suit because it is way faster than any high end suit that I have ever tried or owned.

The all new 2014 Hybrid EFX is nothing less than the highest performance triathlon wetsuit produced to date. Used by no less than 2 ITU World Champions and 4 Olympians, the Hybrid EFX sets the bar for high performance swimming wetsuits. With unprecedented buoyancy due to the latest 4th generation of Aerodome Rubber along with the exclusive and incredibly flexible SyPrene, this suit facilitates the most rapid and energy efficient swim performance.
- The AquaLift glide panel wraps around the sides to maximize buoyancy.Exclusive 4th Generation Yamamoto Aerodome smoothskin throughout entire front and wraps around the sides for superior buoyancy. AquaLift panels are designed to balance your body for maximum efficiency.All seams are chemically bonded, triple stitched and all junctions are heat taped making Synergy one of the best made wetsuits on the planet. By triple stitching and heat taping our suit, we know that it will last much longer than other triathlon wetsuits.

- Ultra soft and flexible low mock neck for unprecedented comfort and ease in breathing. By placing the the neck panel low, most chafing is eliminated and a comfortable seal is established.
- BioAlign panels curb “snaking”. Snaking is one of the most common issues for inefficient swimmers, but Synergy wetsuits are designed to help align the swimmers spine and position for optimum performance.
- Quick grab tab provides easy reach to open the suit in transition. The fold under the closure also doubles as a “pocket” to store the lanyard during the swim so it doesn’t get in the way of your stroke.
- Multistretch liner insures maximum flexibility. Triple stiched seams are bonded and sealed for durability. Torso lining is designed for maximum insulation. Our multistretch liner has quality and workmanship throughout.
- The HiFlex panels in the arms, shoulders and upper chest are made entirely from SyPyrene SuperFlex which is the most flexible neoprene available. SyPyrene is also extremely durable making it optimal for triathlon and the rough and tumble of fast transitions.
- Internal zipper eliminates drag. Only the highest quality zipper is used in all Synergy wetsuits and they are designed to withstand corrosion and snagging. The internal design creates a seal that further reduces water entry.
- Large adjustable velcro patch provides a more custom fit. Not all necks are the same size and without the ability to adjust the neck closure just right, chafing and discomfort is certain. Synergy wetsuits have designed the largest and most adjustable neck closure with aqua-velcro for a perfect custom fit.
- The Synergy Hybrid comes in 16 sizes to insure a perfect fit. All Synergy suits are Ironman approved, ITU approved, USAT approved and FINA open water approved.
- 30-Day Swim test
- 2 Year Warranty
- *Lifetime Replacement Guarantee
- While sizing is a matter of both height and weight, your weight is the most determining factor. Please refer to the size chart for choosing your correct size.
- Any wetsuit may not feel comfortable for a first time user. The key to comfort is in understanding the difference between snug and too restrictive.
- Triathlon wetsuits are made of an advanced wetsuit rubber that is supposed to act like a second skin. Hence it’s supposed to be tight on the body. The advanced rubber allows for comfort and extreme flexibility.
- The wetsuit should be skin tight (more so than other wetsuits), but NOT restrictive. It will feel very tight when dry, but once you are in the water and moving around, it will loosen considerably.
