When it comes to choosing the right competitive swimwear for your needs, the task can become quite overwhelming. Your choices are constantly changing, making it difficult to keep up with. The good news is we’ve put together a handy guide to help you determine if one of these Speedo tech suits is the right option to meet your needs.
Speedo LZR Pure Intent
The Speedo LZR Pure Intent is available for both men and women and offers a thicker shell than many other tech suits on the market, giving it the form needed to ensure swimmers get the shape they need to move easily through the water. This style offers greater compression as well. The performance of the suit is well rated among swimmers and provides the support and compression needed to enhance performance and help swimmers achieve their goals with less fatigue. For men, the suit is available in both regular waisted and high waisted, while the women’s version comes with a closed back and open back. Both come down to a personal preference.
Speedo LZR Pure Valor
Similar in design to the Pure Intent, the Speedo LZR Pure Valor offers slightly less compression in its overall design. Those who have tested this option found the fit to be quite comfortable, whether choosing the regular waisted or the high waisted for men or the open or closed back for women. Unlike the Intent, which features a variety of fabric material combinations in different areas of the suit, this suit is comprised entirely of 65 percent nylon and 35 percent spandex. Due to the lower level of compression, this suit doesn’t provide the same performance enhancement as the Intent, but does serve its purpose in the competitive swimming world.
Making a decision between these two suits can be difficult, but once you realize the advantages of each, the choice becomes clearer. For those who prefer the tighter feel of compression, the Speedo LZR Pure Intent is an excellent choice, placing performance slightly above comfort. However, if you are looking for a suit that provides a high level of comfort without overly affecting your performance, the Speed LZR Pure Valor may be the right choice for you.
