Jaked came into the swimwear market in the age of bodysuits, that time before 2010 when full-length swimsuits were still allowed under FINA regulations. The Jaked J01 was arguably the fastest speedsuit of it's time and helped make a reputation for the Italian competitive swim brand. The FINA rule changes meaning that mens swimsuits had to end above the knee / below the navel, and womens suits had to end above the knee. Jaked have been developing their range of racing suits each year, improving their designs and refining their ideas.
The Pro T racing suit has been gracing our swimming pools at club events and competitions for a few years now. Maru are constantly updating their designs to move with the latest swimwear technologies and materials, so almost every year we see a new improved version of their flagship racing suit. The Pro T has a water repellent coating and provides the swimmer with a decent amount of compression in targeted zones. The material is 50% thinner than most training suits, ensuring it stays lightweight and fast in the water.
If you're looking a more unconventional tech-suit then turn your eyes towards the Diana Poseidon. If you're tired of seeing Speedo Lzr's and Arena Carbon Flex's then you might want to give these a go. The suits have all the technical racing aspects that you would expect from any competitive swimsuit. Compression, panelled construction and bonded seams come as standard. But what really makes them stand out from the crowd is the specially textured surface of the material.
When blueseventy started making competition pool suits in 2008, they didn’t set out to make just another race suit. They wanted to apply their expertise in technical product design to build a race suit that was uniquely different and performed exceptionally well. Just like the nero comp rocked the world by introducing completely new fabrics to the pool, the all-new r10 competition suits follow in that tradition. It is built with some of the most advanced and compressive fabrics available, and introduces the double layering of fabrics that has not previously been legal for competition swimming.
The beauty of swimming is that everyone can get involved. No matter what your age or skill level, there’s always an opportunity to start swimming competitively. Whether you have your local pool in mind, or even a lake, river or ocean swim, you’ll find a wealth of competitive swimming races, events and distances to suit your fitness ability.
