About TYR Racing Swimsuits

About TYR Racing Swimsuits

TYR AP12 Compression Speed High Short

TYR racing swimsuits are known for their quality. TYR constantly plays with technology to see what works best for competitive swimmers. The TYR AP12 swimsuits have quickly become a favorite of swimmers all over the globe. The compression is unsurpassed and creates a flawless fit for swimmers in the water. The AP12 suits are stitch free for a lightweight, non-constricting fit for swimmers. A combination of bonded seams and four-way lock seams reduce drag.

The TYR AP12  racing swimsuits are available in four different styles. The first is the Compression High Back Speedsuit. This suit has a sleek look and is a one piece for women. Straps allow for fluid movement and stability. The important feature of this suit is the high back, which offers security for some swimmers. The women’s suit is also available in an open back. Some swimmers prefer the feeling of an open back as a high back can sometimes feel constricting. Neither suit is better than the other; it all depends on the swimmer’s needs. Both suits implement the cutting edge technology that TYR is known for.

For men, the brand created the AP12 Compression High Short and Speed short. The High Short offers a high waist, which for some swimmers creates the same security brought on by the high back-style swimsuits. This extra fabric doesn’t drag down a swimmer but instead, creates additional compression that is more comfortable to wear. The Speed shorts have a lower waist and are ideal for male swimmers who do not want the added material above the waist. The TYR AP12 shorts for men are created anatomically correct for superior fit. There’s enhanced compression in the areas that need it most. Both shorts use the four-way lock seams for an ultra-smooth fit.

AP12 is a well-known collection from TYR and is FINA approved. It isn’t every day you come across a collection of competition swimsuits that implement the latest technology and have approval from the organization that oversees competitive swimming. TYR knows how to marry function and technology so it benefits swimmers. TYR swimsuits are an investment that offers a swimmer peace of mind as they compete. The AP12 collection has a fit for everyone and ensures the best of swim technology is what you’re wearing in the water. Though comprised of textiles, the suits offer enhanced compression and a trim fit that will feel at one with your body as you take a plunge.

Buying Arena Racing Swimsuits

Buying Arena Racing Swimsuits

Arena Powerskin R-Evo+ Jammer

Arena racing swimsuits are among the top swimsuits for competitive swimmers. Swimmers know they’re getting a high-quality suit that utilizes the latest in swimwear technology when buying a suit from the Arena brand. There are many top swimsuit brands to compete with Arena, but their latest Powerskin Carbon Pro collection is on everyone’s hot list for 2012. The Powerskin Carbon Pro is the Arena racing swimsuit that’s the official pick for the London 2012 Olympics. It’s an exciting time in swimsuit technology as designers and scientists find new ways to help a swimmer’s performance.

No matter the price tag or brand name of your suit, don’t expect the suit to do the work for you. The goal when designers and scientists are creating new competitive swimsuits is to create pieces that do not detract from a swimmer’s performance. Some suits have been banned because of studies that show they do enhance a swimmer’s performance, but for the most part, even the most hi-tech suits aren’t going to increase your speed in the water. What hi-tech suits aim to do is resist weight and drag as you swim. The more compressed certain parts of the body feel, the easier it is for a swimmer to gain momentum and perform at their peak level. Muscles should be compressed but never feel constricted. Arena employs one of the best teams for testing various materials against the elements a swimmer is exposed to while competing.

The Arena R-EVO+ is available in a kneesuit and the Jammer racing swimsuit. Both of these suits boast bonded seams and zoned compression similar to the Powerskin Carbon Pro. The benefit of the Powerskin R-EVO+ kneesuit is that it’s one continuous piece for optimal fit. This suit is made without a single stitch so there’s no pulling, bunching or puckering in or out of the water. The Powerskin R-EVO+ series are the lightest suits on the market that are made using textiles. This is the ultimate suit for those who want something comfortable and classic without increasing drag.

Arena racing swimsuits are known for functional design and the latest in swimsuit technology. The brand is constantly pushing the boundaries and winning, as shown with their Powerskin Carbon Pro collection. Both Arena collections are fantastic for the competitive swimmer who wants a high quality suit that will not detract from performance in the water. Arena racing swimsuits are the prime pick for those who know what they want out of competitive swim gear.

Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro Swimsuits Now Available

Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro Swimsuits Now Available

Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro Swimsuits

Arena carbon suits will soon become a staple for competitive swimmers. The innovative technology allows swimmers to feel light as they swim. It’s no wonder the Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro is the official swimsuit of the London 2012 Olympics. Swimmers know the quality and durability they’re getting with Arena swimsuits. Carbon technology is just the beginning of what makes these suits so special.

Carbon suits are swimsuits that implement compression technology for the ultimate “at one” feeling for swimmers. Swimmers feel like they’re wearing nothing at all. Arena Carbon pro racing swimsuits have little drag, which can improve a swimmer’s speed. Multiple world records were broken at the World Championships a few years ago in Rome, which prompted FINA to ban hi-tech swim gear. Now Arena has come out with the Powerskin Carbon Pro, which is the official swimsuit for the London games. After a few years of toying with technology, Arena has developed a swimsuit with exceptional fit and intelligent muscle compression. This means there’s virtually no weight due to the suit as a swimmer makes his or her way through the lane.

A cutting edge carbon fiber weave is part of the fabric on the Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro swimsuits. This allows for extra compression in the areas swimmers need it most. That additional compression creates a tight feeling without detracting from a swimmer’s movements and flow. You might imagine a carbon laced swimsuit to feel heavy, but on the contrary, carbon fibers are thinner than a human hair and intricately woven into the suits. The result is a suit that is remarkably strong and durable and able to compress without constricting. These strong fibers also prevent the immense stress on the muscles that many swimmers experience while competing.

Arena carbon suits are made to benefit swimmers in and out of the water. The carbon suit allows a swimmer to stretch appropriately without leaving a tightening effect on muscles. In the water, a swimmer can give a peak performance without the drag of compression that uses yesterday’s technology. The latest carbon technology utilized by Arena in the Powerskin Carbon Pro swimsuits creates support and control. Carbon threads clamp down on the body, giving the swimmer an easy feeling that lets him or her glide through the water. There’s control where needed and even lighter fabric where extra compression isn’t needed. This combination creates a powerful fit for swimmers that can propel them to new heights in their performance.
