2XU (“Two Times You”) is a company whose motto is “Human Performance. Multiplied”. This Australian outfit offers running, cycling, triathlon, and recovery gear, but they do it their way: by prioritizing their values.
2XU utilizes sustainable materials for their packaging – a combination of recycled paper and biodegradable cornstarch bags in lieu of plastic. Not only will a 2XU wetsuit keep you warm in the water, but the company behind them is doing their part to reduce the amount of plastic you’ll have to dodge.
In addition to their eco-conscious initiatives, they are among the most size-inclusive wetsuit manufacturers. If you’re a nearly 300 pound triathlete, 2XU has you covered! The men’s line is designed for men up to 298 pounds, and for women up to 194 pounds. For the female athletes that break the traditional mold, many have found 2XU men’s wetsuits to be the most comfortable experience they’ve ever enjoyed.
Their current lines are the Propel P:1 and the Propel P:2, in both full sleeve and sleeveless editions. While each are at maximum 5mm of thickness and feature Rollbar technology to balance buoyancy with flexibility, the P:2 is constructed with more components of variable thickness. These details result in a design more aggressively optimized for reduced mass and improved flexibility.
