Arena have created a brand new powerful Triathlon suit for 2013 that uses the well established Powerskin ST X-raptor material.
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 dive, kick, and turn. The tape stretches as you push off, helping to give a better glide as you start each lap, preserving its optimal fit and freedom of movement throughout. The tapes even help your pre-race stretching and warm-up, so that you can preserve your energy for when you most need it – in the race.
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 the suit 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.
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.
Front Zipper Opening: Easy slide for quick opening when needed. Best quality for long term durability. Zipper garage provides comfort and protection from chaffing during the run and cycle.
Mesh panels: Provide cooling function on the bike and during the run, keeping the athlete cool and dry.
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.
