What Are the Types of 2XU Swim Suits?
We offer a wide range of men’s swimwear, including wetsuits, jammers, swimskins, and more. But what are the differences between these suits, and how do you select the suit that best fits your swimming needs? This guide will help answer all of your swim gear questions so you can find the best suit possible.
Casual and Competitive Pool Swimming
If you’re looking for a bathing suit for indoor and outdoor pool swimming, including everything from lap swimming to competitive racing, our jammers and racers are perfect for you. These swim suits can also be used for casual outdoor swimming, but will work best if the water is warm.
Propel Jammer and Propel Racer
These men’s swimsuits are made with premium Italian material that is both chlorine and UV-resistant, providing sun protection if you train in an outdoor pool. The UPF-protected fabric is also durable, withstanding the wear and tear of the pool and sunscreen. A drawstring provides an adjustable, secure fit, while flatlock inseams reduce chafe.
The tight fit of the Jammer is designed to minimize drag and resistance so you can break records. The Racer provides streamlined comfort so you can enjoy your swim. The Racer will also work for diving training sessions.
Triathlons and Open Water Swimming
While some of these swimsuits will still function well in a pool setting, they are designed to provide coverage and support for open-water swimming, whether that be your main sport or the first leg of your triathlon. Our collection offers options for both warm and cold water swimming so you can be supported regardless of the conditions during your training session or race day.
Propel Buoyancy Shorts
These swim shorts provide a great option for warm water swimming. These men’s swim trunks are designed to mimic the feel and experience of wearing a full wetsuit while keeping you cool. The main feature of these shorts is their added buoyancy, preventing your legs from sinking and helping you stay in a vertical position while you swim.
They will also help you reach top speeds with a Super Composite Skin (SCS) hydrodynamic coating that reduces drag and resistance, so nothing will hold you back. The internal lining stretches for comfort, and an adjustable drawstring waistband allows for a secure fit and feel, making these shorts the perfect summer training companion.
Swimskins make great options for summer triathlons when it is too warm or illegal to wear a full wetsuit. They provide many benefits that include helping you maintain a horizontal body line and increasing your speed, making them the perfect choice for summer racing.
Our Propel Swimskin will do all of this and more. It is lightweight and flexible, ensuring your mobility is maximized. A hydrophobic DWR C0 coating makes the suit feel almost like a second skin and reduces drag so you can hit your best speeds. The seam construction ensures that the suit stays firmly in place and that water is kept out.
Our swimskin will also fit great underneath a t-shirt or swim shirt for all of your post-workout needs.
Our collection of wetsuits will help give you an edge in the competition and help you stay warm and protected in cold outdoor swimming conditions. They provide numerous benefits that make them a must-have for all triathletes. Our wetsuits will help you stay buoyant, reducing sinking and reducing drag, so you can cut through the water with ease and precision.
Read on to discover our different types of trending wetsuits so you can select the option best fit for your swimming needs and personal style preferences:

What Are the Benefits of Wearing a Swim Cap?
Swim caps are essential for any moderate to serious swimmer. They will help hold your hair back, minimizing distractions and the risk of your hair getting caught on lane lines or other objects, and will help you stay warm while swimming.
Swimming with your hair flying behind you also significantly increases drag, slowing you down and potentially getting in the way of your strokes as well. Wearing a cap will prevent all of these unnecessary distractions and speed reductions, helping you focus on your swim and crush your times.
Silicone Swim Cap
Our swim cap will provide all of the benefits listed above. It is strong and durable, so it can withstand tough training sessions and last for a long time. It is also designed to be as comfortable and fit as securely as possible. The silicone material makes it a great option for latex-intolerant swimmers.
2XU Swim Goggles
Our Stealth Goggle - Smoke will keep the water out of your eyes and the anti-fog technology will help your vision cut through murky outdoor conditions, making these goggles a great companion for triathletes and open-water swimmers. One size fits all.
