Ironman Triathlon Swim Rules

As a leading wetsuit brand for triathletes, deboer is committed to designing products that not only enhance performance, but also strictly adhere to the Ironman Triathlon swim rules. Let's take a closer look at how deboer wetsuits meet the key requirements:

Swim Caps and Attire

deboer is proud to the official swim partner of many races around the world- Include Club La Santa IRONMAN Lanzarote where we are the official swim cap provider. These caps are required to be worn participants in the race by Ironman race officials. Our wetsuits and swimwear also comply with the rules around prohibited equipment like snorkels, fins, gloves, and paddles.

When wetsuits are prohibited due to warm water temperatures, deboer's swimwear and swimskins is made from 100% textile materials, without any rubberized components like neoprene. The swimsuits do not cover the neck, extend past the elbows or knees, meeting the swimwear policy requirements. 

Wetsuit Rules
For age-group, relay, and open division athletes, deboer wetsuits are designed to be worn in water temperatures up to 76.1°F (24.5°C), in compliance with the rules. For professional athletes, their wetsuits can be worn in water up to 71.5°F (21.9°C). The wetsuits also adhere to the 5mm thickness limit.

When water temperatures drop below 60.8°F (16°C), deboer wetsuits become mandatory, keeping athletes safe and legal.

Prohibited Equipment
deboer does not produce or recommend the use of any prohibited equipment like headsets, headphones, or communication devices during the swim segment of races. 

By closely following the Ironman swim rules, deboer wetsuits and swimwear allow triathletes to focus on their performance without worrying about potential penalties or disqualifications. The brand's commitment to quality and compliance makes them a trusted choice for serious competitors.
