Speedy swimming is about more than just being strong and fit. Body position and buoyancy both play a big role in helping you get through open water and to T1 as quickly as possible, and Blueseventy engineered the Reaction Men's Wetsuit to address both to help you swim more efficiently. New for 2017, Blueseventy improved flexibility along the upper body and lower legs for a less restricting fit when you're in the water. As before, Blueseventy uses Yamamoto 39-cell neoprene in varying thicknesses for a suit that gives you more buoyancy where you need it, without weighing you down in places you don't. Blueseventy designed the Reaction with its 4-5-4 pattern. Around the chest and lower legs, 4mm thick neoprene lets your body sink slightly into the water for more efficient strokes and kicks, while 5mm neoprene panels at the torso and behind the hips raises your midsection slightly to reduce drag, encourage an efficient "downhill" swimming position, and help minimize inefficient side-to-side roll. Also worth noting is the SCS hydrodynamic silicone coating, which reduces friction and lets you slip through the water faster than you would on your own. Under the arms and around the shoulders, the Reaction sports thin 1. 5mm panels that allow increased flexibility for smooth strokes. The split VO2 chest panel gives your lungs plenty of room to expand and contract, especially while you adapt to icy water and a frantic start, and Blueseventy's Orange A-Flex inner jersey and long rear zipper let you slip easily out of the suit and through T1 before your competitors have had a chance to catch up.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
