TYR is excited to announce the availability of triathlon’s new premiere wetsuit: the TYR Hurricane Freak of Nature. Available on TYR.com and at select retailers, the “Freak” is constructed of 100 percent 40 cell Nano SCS Yamamoto neoprene and able to stretch over seven times its static state. Elevation panels throughout the chest, core, and thighs, along with a .17 specific gravity, enable triathletes to keep their body properly positioned in the water.
Triathletes seeking top of the line speed and luxury along with a unique customer experience will get the total package with this suit. Packaged in a TYR branded steel briefcase with a custom swim cap, wetsuit care kit, and a member card with an individualized access code, customers will be able to register at tyr.com/limitswillfall for exclusive benefits and contests.
Those who purchase and register their suit will also be eligible to win a slot in the Ironman U.S. Championship in New York City. After registering the suit, customers will be prompted to write a caption for the above photo. Captions will be judged on originality, humor, and the spirit of triathlon.

Top triathletes around the world are already praising the benefits of the TYR Hurricane Freak of Nature. Andy Potts, who was first out of the water at the 2010 and 2011 Ironman World Championships, calls the Freak of Nature’s expanded ROM zones “otherworldly effective”, while 4x Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington has said it is “far and away the most amazing wetsuit I have ever had the privilege to swim in.” Racing in the Freak of Nature for the first time, TYR’s Amanda Stevens was first out of the water at 2011 Ironman Arizona.
In addition to Wellington and Potts, other key athletes that will race in TYR’s Hurricane Freak of Nature wetsuit include reigning 2011 Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander, 2010 Ironman World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, and Ironman Champions Julie Dibens and TJ Tollakson.
Limited quantities are available now at select retail stores and on TYR.com for the holiday season. Additional quantities will be available for Spring 2012.
