Roka Women's Maverick Pro
€ 519,35 € 799,00
Born from frustrations with the current wetsuit market, the Maverick is different by design. Three decades of elite swim coaching and training taught us there was a better way to build a wetsuit. Two years of dogged research, development, and testing produced it. We threw away the playbook and rebuilt the triathlon wetsuit from the ground up, to enable, rather than hinder, proper form and technique.
Give it a try, and neither will you.

100% YAMAMOTO PREMIUM NEOPRENE
In the Maverick Pro we use only the very best neoprene in the world from the Yamamoto Corporation, which is located in Japan. Yamamoto neoprene is limestone-based and has a different cell structure than the more commonly used petroleum-based neoprenes from Taiwan and Korea. It is stretchier, returns to form better, and offers an excellent insulation-to-weight ratio. Yamamoto makes a variety of neoprene types, and we use a few different ones (for different reasons) in varying thicknesses, in our suits. We also use different nylon and polyester liners on the inside of the suit to balance stretch, water absorption and support.
The forearms of the Maverick Pro are a premium stretch-woven textile from Italy that's used in olympic swimming suits. The woven textile provides more strength and natural compression than a traditional knit fabric, and this results in more durability and performance for you. The purpose of the textile forearm is to maximize proprioception — or feel — in the water. Swimming fast is all about feel for the water, and strategically placed textile is better than plain or coated neoprene.
LOW CUT NECK
Our wetsuit uses a low cut neck to seal out water but prevent choking/constriction. We still recommend using Body Glide or TriSlide as best practice to eliminate chafing. Our neck line uses Yamamoto #40, an extra little attention to detail, to maximize stretch and comfort.
QUICK RELEASE ANKLE PANELS
The ankle panels of our suit use a 2mm panel at the base of the leg to help you kick your heel out of the suit in T1. You might not notice a difference in a changing room with a dry suit, but when you are at speed in T1, your suit will come off very easily. Our ankle panels are heat taped for durability and to allow you to cleanly shorten the leg, as needed.
