Today I stumbled upon a 2xu E-1 at a local (and highly renowned) cycle shop. Being that I am currently in the market for one, and this one carried a mark down of 50%, I tried it on and decided to pull the trigger on the spot. Before I remove the tags and get wet, I was hoping for a little feedback...
- Is anyone familiar with the 2xu E-1? If so, what thoughts on it?
- The price was marked down to $250 from $499. Google indicates a higher than average list price, but $250 seems to be on the lower end of the spectrum. For those of you who know this wetsuit, is $250 a decent price, or could I do better for comparable quality? It has been over 4 years since I last bought a triatlon wetsuit, so I'm a bit out of the loop.
- Research also shows that the E-1 has been around since circa '09. I am confident this suit has not been on a rack for three years, but should I be concerned about the 'datedness" of this suit? I seem to remember hearing that the integrity of neoprene has a bit of a shelf life.
Many thanks for your thoughts.
