TYR: TYR Venzo Genesis
The TYR Venzo Genesis comes in either an Open or Closed back Kneeskin and Jammer. If you want to push your performance to the top of the podium, then that’s exactly what this racing suit does.
Constructed from frictionless fibres, this suit’s drag is reduced to a minimum. It is also designed with Surface Lift Technology which prevents water from permeating the fabric, ensuring your body has a higher position in the water. An Endo Compression Cage means that the taping and fabric form a compressive cage that allows you to increase your distance per stroke. And finally, the hydrodynamic design utilises a seamless construction to decrease drag and streamline the body position.

SPEEDO: Speedo Fastskin LZR Pure Intent

ARENA: Arena Carbon Air²
Arena has been producing quality suits since 2012 .The Arena Carbon Air² Kneeskin and Jammer is part of an icon range of Racing Swimwear. The launch of the Air2 was a standout in the racing world and has impressed many with the intelligence of the suit. The Air2 encompasses all that came before it, and even more.
It is lighter and tighter than suits that have come before, feeling much like a second skin. It is made from the same fabric as the original Carbon Air, but with the contribution of horizontal bands it makes it more compressive and gives it little drag. The Air2 has lack of compression which liberates breathing and movement. It is incredibly constructed from one piece of fabric giving you a hydrodynamic glide and supreme comfort. Both the jammer and kneeskins have a complete compression system which means your entire core experiences an elevation in compression.
