Nike’s New Collection Is Designed to Perform

Take advantage of Nike Performance Poly.
Nike Performance Poly has plenty to offer.

Most casual swimmers look at a swimsuit and believe besides the color, pattern and cut of the suit, one swimsuit is the same as the next. Swimsuit material is essentially the same on every suit, right? If you’re a serious competitive swimmer focused on results, you know how wrong that assumption is. You know milliseconds can mean the difference between victory and defeat. That’s a fact Nike understands completely and the reason so many professional athletes insist on Nike for their training and competition gear. Nike’s performance materials are not run-of-the-mill swimsuit materials!

Nike Performance Poly

Available in your favorite team colors, as well as eye-catching designs, performance poly is one of the materials featured in Nike’s new collection of competition swimwear. Not only will your training and competition swimsuits look sharp, they will give you a competitive edge and shave valuable time off your results. Nike Performance poly is comfortable and lightweight, durable, can stand up to long sessions in a chlorinated pool and retain color-fastness and resists stretching. This is an Olympic year, and competitive swimming is in the spotlight. If the Olympics have inspired you to “kick up” your game, make sure you’ve got a swimsuit that is up to the challenge.

Nike Performance Poly Blend

The other material you will see in Nike’s new competition line is a performance poly blend. This material delivers outstanding performance, fit and support. Unlike the Performance Poly, which is 100 percent polyester, Nike’s performance poly blend suits are 82 percent polyester and 18 percent Spandex. The fabric has just a little more give and stretch than the 100 percent Poly suits. Whether you are looking for a lingerie tank suit, a retro-pattern cutout suit, a prism-pattern or signature Nike Swoosh brief or any other sporty pattern, you’ll love the options in the Performance Poly Blend fabric.

Whether you need a jammer, a brief, a fastback one-piece tank or any of Nike’s training swimsuits, you’ll find an excellent assortment of options crafted with these winning materials. Where you buy your competitive swimwear is almost as important as the swimwear itself! Make sure to shop with a provider that carries only authentic Nike suits and offers outstanding customer service support should you need it.

TYR Voltage. A horizontal pattern of wavy lines in light purple, orange and blue zigzag across a black background. The pattern looks a bit like a sunrise over purple mountains.

TYR Petra. You’ll look like a lean, mean green machine as you glide through the water in the green-and-black Petra model, whose pattern resembles alligator skin.

TYR Heat Wave. As the name hints, this suit’s pattern resembles visible waves of heat. The colors are a psychedelic combination of bright turquoise, black and bright red.

TYR Ignis. This design resembles bright green and black dancing flames, with a black diamond-shaped swatch along the lower left of the suit.

The Best Selling Starting System for Competitive Swimmers

Get off to the right start with swim meet starting systems.
Swim meet starting systems are an important component.

If you’re involved in competitive swimming, you understand the importance of quality start systems. They keep swim meets on schedule and give all swimmers a level playing field.

Swim Meets: 90 Percent Muscle, 10 Percent Technology

One of the refreshing aspects of competitive swimming is there is so little equipment involved. Swim meets involve swimmers wearing swimsuits, swim caps and goggles in a swimming pool. In competitive swimming, however, there will never be a “deflate-gate” controversy. One will never wonder if a bat has been corked. The technologies in play in competitive swimming are there to keep swim meets moving along and to record results accurately. Arguably, the swim meet starting system is the most important technology in competitive swimming.

The Colorado Timing Infinity Swim Meet Starting System: Popular for a Reason

Packed with features, the Colorado Timing Infinity Starting System is the smart choice for swim meet planners whose away schedules involve pools that are not equipped with their own starting systems. The lightweight and compact Colorado starting system can be easily packed up and transported to all swim meets. Many lesser starting systems use only visual or audible cues. The Colorado system incorporates both a loud sound and a flashing strobe light to alert all swimmers of the start of a race. To maximize the effectiveness of the sound notifications, mount speakers under individual starting blocks and/or at each end of the pool.

The addition of a visual cue in the form of a flashing strobe light is a huge benefit for all swimmers, especially for those who are hearing impaired. Instead of having to watch other competitors for cues, they can focus on the race ahead.

Additionally, the Colorado system has a false-start notification feature that ensures competitors know immediately when a false start has delayed the race. Each extra stroke a swimmer takes, not realizing there has been a false start, puts him at a disadvantage.

The easily portable and surprisingly affordable Colorado timing infinity start system is the best of the best and will serve reliably for seasons to come. The Colorado Infinity Start System features corrosion-resistant speakers and a microphone, and its gel-cell battery can be charged using a 115-volt charger.  In competitive swimming, fractions of seconds count. An effective start system can keep swimmers from wasting energy on false starts.

Fit and Compression

How the swimsuit fits plays a major role in how well you can perform. If the suit is too tight, it won’t allow the freedom of movement you need. If it’s too loose, it will create too much resistance. In addition to having a proper fit that allows for optimal range of motion, it’s important to make sure the TYR and Speedo tech suits offer the compression needed to make sure you are more  hydrodynamic.

Durability

You will spend a significant amount of money when you buy tech suits from the major competitive swimwear brands. It’s important to make sure you are spending money on something that will last for the long-term. Durability will ensure your suit will continue to fit well for longer so you can use it for both practice and events.
