POWERSKIN Carbon Pro, the next generation racing suit integrating a carbon cage to deliver intelligent muscle compression, combined with unprecedented fit.
Compression in a competition suit is associated with the increased support, efficiency and power, but high compression can have a restricting effect on movement. The swimmer in motion is also a dynamic form complex requirements for support and compression. How can you get more of the benefits of compression, without its drawbacks? Squeezing the swimmer harder will not help!
To deliver a breakthrough solution to the compression challenge, arena has incorporated CARBON FIBER into the weave of the POWERSKIN® Carbon-Pro fabric.
Known for its unique structural and mechanical properties, the carbon fibre locks down when and where a critical stretch level is reached, while retaining the suit’s elasticity.
This delivers a ramp-up in compression on those specific overextended zones, increasing support and control where and when they are needed without detracting from the swimmer’s mobility.
