Prices don’t seem as good as last year. I love huub, and bought a grade D Archimedes II last year for £70.30. This year…£125.
Not worth it at that price. Mine was always intended to be a training suit to save my “race” one, and it’s torn to shreds in only half a dozen or so uses. The neoprene just seems to have significantly degraded with whatever ex-demo use it’s gone through. People talk about huub being fragile, but I’ve not found that in new suits. However I wouldn’t pay more than £70.30 again for the lower grades.
The A1 stuff is probably good value if your in need for a race suit however.
I wouldn’t be happy! Albacore is so much tighter and I can’t wear it. They’ve done the same with me before and I had to send it back and wait for an Archimedes. It was so tight it actually made my legs go numb! This is despite them saying they fit exactly the same. They 100% do not!
Yep, that’d be good. I was tempted by an Archimedes III at that grade and similar discount, but with a hardly used Archimedes II, and another brand new one in a box (don’t ask!), I couldn’t really justify the need!
No experience of those ones GB, other than to say that originally the Albacore range was Huub’s top spec model that then got superseded. But if you were contemplating, then SP-10-MAY21 should give you another 10% off if you didn’t get the same notification
