Triathlon Wetsuit Repair – Huub Neck Replacement

Huub Triathlon Wetsuit Repair

This Huub wetsuit came in with a damaged neck. An attempt had been made by the owner to rectify the problem but it continued to tear across the neckline.


This is the inside as it looked when it arrived. The neoprene lining material was delaminating and coming apart.


We removed the damaged section of the suit as it was too badly gone to do a simple patch.

 

The new piece has been inserted. This is how it looked from the inside.

 

 


The finished job looked like this. A suit that was beginning to become unusable, back in service and ready to race.

If you have something like this or any other wetsuit or drysuit repair, give us a call on : 0161 304 8471

Aquasphere Triathlon Wet Suit – Zip base repair

Aqua Shere Triathlon Wetsuit Repair.

This suit came in with damage that is typical of this kind of suit and its use. Athletes are always in a rush to get out of their suits and this is the inevitable consequence. It is easily sorted though.

This is the outside view after the base and the seam have been repaired.

 


This is the inside after repair and reinforcement. Flat, flexible, welded, fabric covered patches have been added to give strength without bulk.

Rooster Sailing Wetsuit Convenience Zip Fitment

It’s that time of year again. The early season training is already happening for some and anything broken from last season needs to be fixed or altered ready to go. We have just had this Rooster Sailing Long-john in for a ‘Convenience-zip’.

The zip is fitted externally using the same ‘No Stich Technology’ technique employed by Bare Drysuits. This combined with the internal zip flap minimises water ingression.

Need some thing like this, then give us a call. Tel: 0161 304 8471
