Arena Carbon Pro Closed Back Short Leg Suit – Acid Green
Ladies Powerskin Carbon-Pro Shorty
Competition swimsuits have traditionally compromised between compression (to achieve optimum muscle power) and optimum fit and comfort (for freedom of movement). A tight-fitting garment provides greater muscle compression but loses freedom of movement, with the converse being true for a loose-fitting garment. Now, with the Arena Carbon-Pro, this kind of compromise is a thing of the past. The Carbon-Pro offers both maximum muscle compression AND total freedom of movement, thanks to the unique properties of its carbon-based fabric. Not only that, the benefits kick in from the moment you pull on the suit, and last until you touch the wall at the end of your race.
Before the Race
Mechanical resistance and durability – able to withstand more handling and stretch with less chance of tearing or surface damage when putting it on
On the Blocks
Mechanical resistance and durability – endures stretch while remaining comfortable against the skin Intelligent compression – maximum support and control during the crouch and dive
In the Water
Intelligent Compression – carbon thread ‘locks down’ on over-extended zones, increasing support and control where and when it’s needed Power return – strategic placement and construction of elasticized bonding tape delivers added power on kicks and turns
Powerskin Carbon-Pro: No Compromise
Intelligent Compression: Stiff, strong carbon fibres combined with high-stretch elastomer yarns in a woven construction create a ‘lock-out’ effect. These fibres lock down when a critical stretch level is reached, much like a car’s seat belt is locked when the vehicle experiences a high impact. With a swimsuit, the lock down of the carbon fibres maximizes compression on over-extended zones, increasing support and control where it’s needed and when it’s needed. At the same time, the stretch fabric remains comfortable without compromising the swimmer’s mobility.
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 Carbon-Pro’s high-performance woven fabric (190g/sqm) reinforced with carbon fibre delivers the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio for combined speed and power. 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.
When selecting a size to purchase this website uses USA/UKHOW TO TAKE MEASUREMENTS: A - Height: To determine your height, stand up straight and measure the distance from the crown of your head to the sole of your foot. B - Chest: Take the measurement over the fullest part of your bust. C - Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your waistline. D - Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips E - Torso: In a loop, measure from the highest part of the shoulder, beneath the crotch and then back to the starting point. Body measurements and the corresponding sizes are to be considered a general guideline. Any racing suit should be tried on before choosing the appropriate size, based upon individual preference in terms of compression. Swimming stroke and distance may also be key factors in the suit selection.
