Description

SAMS stands for Shark Attack Mitigation System, which was developed in partnership with the University of Western Australia’s Oceans Institute and School of Animal Biology, with the aim of reducing the risk of shark attacks. It’s based on in-depth research into shark vision, neurology and behavior, which amongst other things analyzes what they can see at certain depths and distances under different light and water conditions. By playing with the color/contrast and size/shape of the suit’s design, the aim is to deter the shark by making the swimmer appear less desirable (or even dangerous) to attack as possible food. The SAMS wetsuit pairs shark deterrent technology with unique carbon technology for unparalleled core stability. The carbon cage provides crucial support when and where it’s needed at specific points on the body. Core stability is also taken a step further with the help of advanced neoprene and Yamamoto Aerodome fabric for maximum buoyancy. The suit’s buoyancy is evenly-distributed across key areas of the suit, helping keep the swimmer’s body position level in the water. Long sleeve wetsuits are more buoyant and offer more coverage for maximum temperature regulation while swimming in open water. However, due to additional material and corresponding buoyancy in the arms, this can alter a competitive swimmer's stroke slightly. We recommend practicing to get used to how the long sleeves may alter your stroke before racing in a full sleeve wetsuit. SAMS stands for Shark Attack Mitigation System, which was developed in partnership with a team of respected shark researchers, with the aim of reducing the risk of shark attacks. It's based on in-depth research into shark vision, neurology and behavior, which amongst other things analyzes what they can see at certain depths and distances under different light and water conditions. By playing with the colour/contrast and size/shape of the suit's design, the aim is to put off the shark by making the swimmer appear less desirable (or even dangerous) to attack as possible food. The wetsuit also uses carbon technology with all the benefits of the carbon cage, including greater core stability and crucial support when and where it's needed at specific points on the body. Core stability is also taken a step further with the help of the suit's buoyancy, which is evenly-distributed across key areas of the suit - it helps keep the swimmer's body position level in the water.
