XTERRA follows the Swimming Conduct rules for Wetsuit and Speedsuit Use established by the USA Triathlon at all XTERRA World Tour events, and the XTERRA World Championship.
Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wetsuit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit.

Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 degrees Fahrenheit. The wetsuit policy for elite athletes shall be determined by the USAT Athletes Advisory Council. The AAC has set the wetsuit maximum temperature for elite athletes at 68 degrees for swim distances less than 3000 meters and 71.6 degrees for distances of 3000 meters or greater. Any swimmer wearing a wetsuit with a thickness measured in any part greater than 5 millimeters shall be disqualified.
XTERRA World Championship: Wetsuits ARE NOT allowed for pro or amateur athletes racing in Maui. Speedsuits or skin suits ARE permitted. View list of permitted speedsuits.
