Power Return: Strategic placement of elastic bonding tape on the inside of the legs and the gluteal muscles delivers added power through a “spring back” action on each kick.
Improved Surface Integrity: The superior strength of this fabric translates into a stronger suit, with less chance of tearing or damage that can result from extreme stretching while putting on. Preservation of the integrity of the swimsuit’s surface in turn maximizes drag reduction and optimizes water repellency.
Light Chamois: Does not absorb moisture so no drag in the water and no added weight. Low profile shape ensures minimal bulk. Heat pressed edging further reduces bulk and ensures optimum comfort as well as reduced risk of chaffing. Pre-cut holes ensure optimum moisture transfer and quick dry effect after leaving the water. Quick dry and low profile insert is not noticeable in the run.
Silicon Leg Grippers: Keeps and water out, reducing drag. Avoids any riding up and ensures perfect placement of the garment to provide perfect muscle coverage and support.
Mesh panels: Provide cooling function on the bike and during the run, keeping the athlete cool and dry.
Flat Drawstrings: Ensures perfect sealed fit around the waist and stop water getting through, in addition to preventing any sliding down or “creep” of garment during the run and cycle.
Flatlock Stitched Seams: Flatlock stitched to provide great durability and stretch.
Mesh Pockets: Low profile bonded pocket opening and mesh fabric ensures zero drag in the water. Well placed pockets ensure easy access while on the bike and during the run stage.
Panel Shapes and Placement: Unique Arena patterns provide reduced surface drag, improving hydro-dynamics. Unique groin panels in suits and jammers ensure comfortable forward tuck position on the bike, large arm holes add to this freedom of movement.
