Carbon Glide is a very light suit and this is why so many love it. However this lightness makes it particularly delicate when putting the suit on. Make sure your nails are not touching the fabric. And always pull up the suit from the seems, not from the fabric.

Fifty years of gold medals, fifty years of arena! Our Black & Gold Closed Back Powerskin Carbon-Glide is a limited edition racing suit we created for this landmark year. Styled in black with gold detailing, this FINA-approved kneeskin is made with ultra-thin Hydroglide to enhance your sense of effortless speed in the water. The shell is integrated with Carbon Light Cage fabric that envelops strategic muscles with compact compression. Inside carbon lining and internal taping link muscle groups together for seamless motion in the water. Opt for this closed-back version if you prefer a more supported upper body.

OUR POWERSKIN CARBON GLIDE IN A NUTSHELL

THE POWER OF THE CARBON FIBER:
FLEXIBILITY, COMPRESSION AND DURABILITY TOGETHER AT LAST.

Carbon Fiber is the ultimate material for performance and speed in everything from F1 cars to space shuttles.
Following years of extensive research and development, arena has discovered a revolutionary way to integrate flexible strands of this extraordinary material into the fabric of all Carbon Series race suits, delivering unprecedented performance and strength without sacrificing flexibility and range of motion.


flexibility

FLEXIBILITY

The integrated Carbon Fibers work to apply compression before the fabric is fully stretched, giving the suit the additional stretch capacity needed for optimal flexibility and mobility.

compression

COMPRESSION

The combination of high-density woven nylon and infused Carbon Fiber gives all Carbon Series suits advanced structural resistance and power.

durability

DURABILITY

Carbon Series suits offer a much longer lifespan than traditional race suits thanks to Carbon Fiber’s inherent resistance to chlorine.

fina approved

FINA APPROVED

FINA is the world governing body for Aquatic sports. FINA approved swimwear has to be used at FINA events.


FEEL THE GLIDE

Two brand new fabrics combine to deliver an unbelievable feeling of speed in the water.

ZERO-DRAG

Super-light and ultra-low-profile, our exclusive new Hydroglide fabric dramatically reduces surface drag for sensational underwater glide.

TARGETED COMPRESSION

Comprised of the highest content of carbon fiber, the Carbon Glide utilizes a carbon grid that surrounds specific muscle groups for strong, targeted compression and reduced drag.

ULTRA-LIGHT

Featuring a multi-fabric construction that combines both Hydroglide and carbon fiber materials, the Carbon Glide offers the perfect combination of lightness and compression for uncompromising performance and fit.

MUSCLE ACTIVATION

Carbon Fiber infused lining, placed strategically to activate major muscle groups, provides an added feeling of support, body-hold, and streamlined speed.
