The Helix has won more races than any other wetsuit, ever. The Helix has unparalleled flexibility and strategically placed buoyancy panels to lift the body but not inhibit the pull or glide phase of the swim stroke.
  • BUOYANCY: The Helix tiers buoyancy 5-5-4, centralizing the core to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the swimmer.
  • The distinct blue panels of the Helix have been a standout feature since the first model was released in 2006. For the 5th
  • generation, we further advanced the premium Yamamoto 40 cell 1.5mm proprietary TST panels by eliminating seam lines and freeing up the deltoid muscle to provide unparalleled arm and shoulder mobility.
  • No other wetsuit offers ultrathin 1mm premium Yamamoto 40 cell arms that provide the flexibility and comfort of a second skin with the speed and propulsion of a full suit.
  • The Helix has been improved with body mapped gender specific 3mm Fit Panels contoured to not only make the 2016 edition our easiest Helix to fit, but to compliment the torso and back leg buoyancy panels to improve body rotation.
  • Redesigned for 2016 the split chest construction naturally and anatomically accentuates the lungs, producing the optimal amount of buoyancy while maximizing stretch during respiration.
  • The thin center panel has been extended to the neckline to improve fit and comfort.
  • Addition of 2mm thin lower leg panels beginning at the knee and flaring out at the ankle. This design has made the Helix easier to get on and the fastest to remove when seconds matter.
  • A premium feature of the Helix since 2010 is our ultra light, hydrophobic catch panel made with the same permeable textile fabric used in our swim skins and competition pool swim suits. These minimalistic forearm panels increase awareness of arm position in the water encouraging better technique, more power and reduced risk of injury.
  • The 4 way stretch fabric in our 40 cell 1mm silicone cuffs seal the wrists from unwelcomed water entry, without catching when removing the suit.
  • 2mm textured panels assist with knee flexion by reducing bunching and improved running to transition.
  • The Helix reverse zipper not only removes the bulker zipper head from behind the neck, but also reduces the need for a traditionally higher collar, improving your comfort and making it easier to sight.
  • The Helix is built on a 5-5-4 pattern, centralizing core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the body. The chest and torso panels utilize super buoyant 5mm Yamamoto Aerodome that keep the hips high and promote an efficient downhill swimming position.
  • Our striking bright orange inner jersey is laminated to ultra supple 40 cell neoprene to produce an incredibly flexible suit. New for 2016 is the addition of our new blue jersey focused at the TST, Body Fit and VO2 Chest panels.

Blueseventy sizing August 9, 2017
Reviewer: Stephen from St. John's, NL Canada  
The ML Helix fits great even though their sizing chart indicates it should be too big and the MT would be a better fit.  Previously, I owned a Blueseventy MT suit and it was too tight.  I swim faster in the new ML, compared to the MT, and there is no excess water getting into the ML suit.

2017 Blueseventy Helix Wetsuit August 8, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Fantastic wetsuit! This one replaced my old 2012 Helix and is better in every way. It goes on easier, comes off easier, fits better around the knees and shoulders, easy to breath in and zero chafing.

Very impressed with the service and fast shipping by Triboutique!

Great product, shipped the same day. July 11, 2016
Reviewer: Tyler from Kelowna, BC Canada  
It shipped in a matter of hours.

For those of you who are debating between the sleeved vs non-sleeved Helix: there is a video on youtube where they split test the two --- and the sleeved came out faster.
