I bought the suit at a discounted price because I'm just too cheapskate to buy expensive ones. I wanted to guy a trisuit and train in it in good time before the 70.3 Desaru race. Unfortunately, I was only able to try the suit for one short bike ride of about 70km before the Movement Control Order (MCO). Therefore, my review is very limited to a short ride. I can give no review for the swim and run at the moment. The first thing that I noticed about the suit was that there was no space to print my name on it. It was no more no less a billboard suit in that it had plenty of advertisements for numerous brands. In terms of comfort, it was OK but for the tight armpit area which I'm guessing would be an issue in the swim; it would most probably cause blisters, so I foresee lots of lubricants will be needed around the armpits! In terms of heat, unfortunately, I have yet to ride in the late morning or afternoon to get the full effect of the sun, to be able to tell if this suit lives up to its claim of best for the tropical heat. After the MCO, I will train more in it, and should be able to add further comments. But for now, I'm giving it a 4-star due to the tight armpit.

Fit and padding on this suit is fantastic. Tried it out during a 70.3 and thw Powerman 2019 short course amd it served me well. My only grouse was the seam on the right arm near the shoulder joint, it gave me a hotspot that became an abrasion during the swim. Thankfully there was no rub on the bike and run so managed to carry on without worry. Love the bike short padding on this suit. Comfy on the bike and disappears on the run.
