Description of Maverick X Wetsuit
The manufacturer Roka description of Maverick X: “The all-new Men’s and Women’s Maverick X is the fastest men’s and women’s wetsuit ever built.

More endurance, more speed, and 7% more buoyant — if you thought we couldn’t make the Maverick X any better, get ready to meet your speed and endurance-enhancing, not-so-secret weapon.”

Review on the “Triathlon Gear Expert” website, dated September 30, 2019.
Short summary: The ROKA Maverick X Men’s Wetsuit is not a suit for novices. You need to be able to swim proficiently to get the most from the speed-boosting features built into this suit. However, if you are already a fast swimmer, this suit will supercharge your performance.

Review on the “Atriathletesdiary” website, dated August 19, 2016.
Short summary: I loved it! I was impressed with the way it was made with the different panels. I was impressed with the feel of it. And, I was impressed with the way it came on and off pretty easily. But I was most impressed with how I felt gliding through the water.
Review on the “Slowtwitch” website, dated July 12, 2016.
Short summary: Roka has a style about it. The company I’m talking about. It feels like Apple or Under Armour.
