Race day. The sun slowly rises above the surface of the water. You are at your peak, eagerly awaiting the start signal. Wearing the sailfish Ultimate IPS Plus 3 as your competition suit, you know what to expect: weightlessness, freedom, speed. We’ve made a good thing even better in the Ultimate IPS Plus 3. Our passion for triathlon and more than a decade of experience building and designing gear for the sport help us get every last ounce of performance out of our wetsuits – performance that is transferred directly to you, to your team in training and to your competitors on race day. Swim like a pro, with the suit for pros.German engineering meets a passion for triathlon with top technologies from sailfish. The Ultimate IPS Plus 3 is packed with new features.
More buoyancy for a perfect water position
Aerofloat Max stands for maximum buoyancy, with integrated air cells that ensure an optimal water position. For you, this means improved body posture, an even flatter silhouette and even more speed.
Hip rotation – the key to even more efficiency
The Hip Rotation Panel, a completely new development for 2022, is a design feature that helps you generate an even more powerful leg kick and faster swimming technique. Additional flexibility in the hips allows you unrestricted hip rotation, almost as if you were swimming without a suit. This way you can transfer the longitudinal rotation of your body to the water and convert all your power into effective propulsion.
Perfectly matched material thicknesses
The Ultimate IPS Plus 3 uses a neoprene thickness of 4.5mm at the chest, hips and thighs to create buoyancy exactly where it supports your technique the most. 2.5-4mm on the lower leg offer a balanced compromise between buoyancy and an easy, quick exit in the transition zone. Arms and shoulders have maximum freedom of movement with 1.5mm neoprene for efficient and powerful arm pulls.
The key to efficient technique with maximum propulsion is unlimited mobility. That’s what our Ultimate IPS Plus 3 offers you with its advanced Phantom Skin neoprene and Ultra Stretch Inner Liner. Extremely flexible material allows you to fully concentrate on your own technique, your competition and your performance. Your suit supports you without dominating. The Ultimate IPS Plus 3 gives you unrivalled freedom to fully deploy your skills. The Zero Resistance Panel offers a perfect water experience with an integrated arm panel and a minimal number of seams.
Even less water resistance
Our Nano Stealth Coating minimises drag between the suit and the water. The ultra-thin coating lets you glide weightlessly through the water – so you quickly approach the transition zone and a new personal best.
Comfort drives speed
We know that even the best wetsuit is only useful if you love wearing it. That’s why the sailfish Super Comfort Inner Liner provides enormous flexibility and unmatched wet-slip properties, making the suit comfortable to wear in the water and even easier and quicker to take off. After all, the first discipline doesn’t end until you’re through the transition zone!
Ultimate IPS PLUS 3 - Athletenstimmen
„Der Ultimate IPS PLUS 3 ist der Neo, in dem ich am schnellsten schwimme. Der Auftrieb verbessert meine Wasserlage enorm und hilft mir, die erste Disziplin schnell, aber ohne große Kraftverluste zu absolvieren.“
Für mich ist der Ultimate gerade für die Langdistanz meine Wahl, weil er viel Schulterbeweglichkeit mit sich bringt. Gleichzeitig hat er viel Auftrieb, ist aber trotzdem so ausbalanciert, dass sich das Schwimmen, egal bei welchen Geschwindigkeiten, anfühlt, als hätte man keinen Neo an!
