WOMENS KONA SLEEVELESS
The NEW KONA is an all-round wetsuit that delivers many of the key technical benefits of the high-end Zoot Wetsuit range without the high price tag. Packed with performance features and technology, the KONA has a GLIDEflex grooved panel in the chest to allow full expansion of your lungs. Many triathletes tend to “panic” breath at the start of the swim and the GLIDEflex panels release to allow the chest to expand for deeper breaths. AQUAlift buoyancy technology raises the hips to put the body in the most efficient swimming position, this wetsuit has been designed to increase speed and comfort in the water. With great price-to-performance ratio, you can't beat the Kona.

WHY CHOOSE THE SLEEVELESS KONA?
Built for the triathlete who is swimming in warmer climates or for the triathlete that wants total shoulder freedom. When air and water temperatures over longer distances rise, some athletes can overheat in a full suit. A sleeveless suit offers most of the buoyancy of a full suit without the additional warmth.
SUSAN OYLER - AGE GROUP ATHLETE
"Over the years, I’ve been through my fair share of sleeveless wetsuits from different brands. For one reason or another, none of them worked for me. One floated me too much and I was on top of the water. One was too thick and resisted body rotation.. Yet another was so tight around my neck that it was strangling me. Like Goldilocks, I finally found the one that’s JUST right with the Kona sleeveless wetsuit. It’s clear that a lot of thought was put into the layout of the neoprene panels, because the wetsuit provides the right amount of buoyancy and allows for effortless body rotation. The suit is also unbelievably comfortable. The arm openings don’t dig into or chafe your underarms. And the neck is absolute perfection. I’m so excited to have the Kona sleeveless in my arsenal of tools for race day!"
GLIDEflex IN THE CHEST AND CALVES
GLIDEflex Grooved neoprene panels increase stretch for maximum lung and muscle expansion. Many triathletes tend to “panic” breath at the start of the swim and the GLIDEflex panels release to allow the chest to expand for deeper breaths
COMFORT BACK NECK
Zoot Wetsuits are designed with a raised back tab of butter soft neoprene to protect the back of your neck from chafing.
FRICTION FREE NECK
All Zoot wetsuits have a fully coated SCS neck to eliminate friction and stop chafing.
SCS NANO SPEED COATING
SCS (Super Composite Skin) is a hydrodynamic coating that improves swimming speeds by reducing drag thus allowing the suit to glide through water more efficiently. Think of it as a high tech teflon coating that repels water and protects your wetsuit by reducing the possibility of rips and tears.
Less friction. Less drag. More speed.
2mm of neoprene around the back zipper gives better stretch for improved lung expansion. Zoot's DORSALflex zipper construction allows the zipper panel to stretch with the body which will eliminate the traditional restrictive feeling when zipping up.
Heat set Moontape is placed 3” up the arms and legs to ensure maximum durability and provides the opportunity to cleanly customize the length. Spot reinforcements are placed throughout the suit for long lasting comfort and durability.
OPTIMAL KICK DESIGN (OKD)
OKD is Zoot propriety leg patterning that forms to the angle of your knee in the water and works with your anatomy rather than fight it. OKD ensures increased kick velocity, frequency, and efficiency.
Zoot suits are built with premium textile liners that are optimized for maximum stretch, comfort and low absorption. We only use high quality, silky smooth nylon textiles that make our wetsuits come off in transition like butter!
We only use YKK stainless steel zippers which close from bottom to top. This makes opening the wetsuit and getting out much simpler, easier and faster in transition.
PROTECTIVE STORAGE BAG
Every Zoot Wetsuit comes with our exclusive garment bag that will shield your suit from UV rays when not in use
ONLY THE BEST PREMIUM JAPANESE NEOPRENE
Zoot only uses the very best neoprene in the world from the Yamamoto Corporation in Japan—the highest grade of rubber available. Yamamoto neoprene is limestone-based and has a different cell structure than the more commonly used petroleum-based neoprene. It is more flexible, more durable and is better for the environment than traditional neoprene. Yamamoto neoprene absorbs very little water, making Zoot wetsuits naturally lighter, warmer, more flexible and is better for the environment than traditional neoprene.
