Bonded Seams allow for greater range of motion, meaning better starts, turns and kicks.
Seam placement creates a "flexline" across the hip flexors, offering less resistance during hip flexion on starts, turns, and breaststroke kicks. The system delivers complete freedom of movement around the hips, glutes, and shoulders, along with perfect fit and comfort.
This high tech fabric construction includes carbon fibres for targeted muscle compression.
The high-performance fabric (190g/sqm), woven and reinforced with carbon fibre delivers unsurpassed strength-to-weight ratio for a balanced combination of speed and power. The incredible strength of this material translates into a tougher suit, with less chance of damage or tearing that can result from extreme stretching while putting the suit on. The swimsuit’s surface also maximizes drag reduction and optimizes water repellency.
Connects and compresses certain muscle groups while isolating upper and lower body movement for optimal swim position.
The carbon cage is the technology which sets Arena powerskin suits apart from all the rest! Carbon fibre bands are woven into the fabric of the suit, providing added strength and superb muscular compression properties. The carbon bands lock-out when they reach their limits, meaning the material is less likely to rip and tear than other suits which do no have this feature.
Suit construction forces the swimmer, into an efficient swimming position.
This delivers additional power through a “spring back” motion on each kick, dive and turn. The tape stretches as you push off, helping to give a better glide when you start, preserving its optimum fit and freedom of movement throughout. The tape also aids your pre-race warm up and stretching, so that you can conserve energy for when it's needed most– in the race.
Elastic bonding tape is strategically placed on the inside of the legs and the gluteal muscles.
The rear seam creates a "tension line" between the two anchor points, limiting stretch on this line and having a lifting effect on the back of the legs. This helps to keep the legs high in the water during freestyle and to keep the knees from dropping during breaststroke and butterfly.
Merged support seams to anchor tension points for maximum power for strokes and kicks.
On the women's suit, the front and rear seams cross in an "X" construction to anchor the tension of all seams at the center back. This creates an optimal link between the lower and upper body sections, and a torsion point from which the swimmer can leverage their kicks and pulls.
