TYR Freak of Nature, $1,200
A wetsuit that costs $1,200? Yes, TYR has one. Taking the Freak of Nature into transition is guaranteed to set you apart. It begins with the special wood and metal case that is inscribed with a special serial number. (Oh, did we mention this is a limited model?) It continues with the super-comfy and snug fit thanks to the Yamamoto #40 neoprene that�s used throughout this suit. TYR has thrown in pretty much every bell and whistle they can, too. There are special elevation panels made with aerated neoprene to optimize your position in the water, stretch panels (ROM Zones, as the TYR folks like to call them) to provide optimal flexibility where you need it, quick-release ankle cuffs and V-GCP panels to improve your catch. (If you need to ask, this might not be for you.) TYR wants to make the process of buying a wetsuit like buying a car. This one will feel like you�re off to get a Ferrari.
