Vita’s View: Aqua Trek
So I’ve been lucky enough to test out the new Berlei Aqua Trek sports bra and shorts over the past couple of weeks ready to give you all my view;
Firstly, I’d like to confess that while this is described as a crop top for triathletes I am most definitely not one, you see there is a problem with triathlons and me, it’s a most cringe worthy one which I am sharing publically for the first time.. I cannot nor have I ever been able to, ride a bicycle. There, I’ve said it! It was something I never learnt as a child - until now, when my eldest wants to learn to ride a two-wheeled bicycle - it’s never been an issue! But that’s a separate blog post!
The Aqua Trek Crop top is designed to work in, on, and away from water. Whether you are running, swimming or sailing the Aqua Trek could be exactly what you are looking for! Designed with both support and comfort in mind the crop top fastens at the front with a zip a feature which I would have loved during my wetsuit wearing days as a dinghy sailor – no more snagging in your wetsuit zip! The straps are adjustable to ensure a perfect fit, and again the strap adjustment system is designed to give a smooth finish (in fact I struggled to find where to adjust the top initially as it was so well hidden!). I was a bit bemused by the ventilation holes, but have to confess they do work well to provide some much needed air circulation even for my lowlier exercise efforts!
The Aqua Trek triathlon shorts, these really surprised me I have to say I’ve road tested these hard as I wasn’t convinced they’d be as comfortable as they claimed, however I am delighted to say they really are! The high fit waist means not only do they stay up without need to constantly adjust them, but they also cover the area I’m least keen on - my lower tummy! Even after wearing these for several hours, they retained their shape and are still comfortable without any points of discomfort or chaffing! Do they dry quickly? Yes, and there is no sagging of the super lightweight fabric. Basically, I felt as though I was wearing comfortable underwear rather than swim bottoms. While I don’t think I’d be brave enough to wear them as shorts, I’ll be wearing them with the crop top for some wild swimming this summer and I think that the tankini top is now a necessary purchase!
