* Introducing the latest evolution in the POWERSKIN Carbon Air racing line – the Carbon Air². Our Powerskin Carbon AIR racing technology has been a leading choice of World and Olympic champions worldwide. We took this foundation and elevated the suit’s capabilities even higher above the competition – extending a culture of constant improvement.

Constructed from one piece of fabric, the Carbon Air² provides lighter weight, more hydrodynamic – lower drag features than its predecessor, Carbon Air. The one-piece construction provides Air² with a higher level of comfort, improved freedom of movement and improved level of compression making the suit feel even more like a second skin. These features make the NEW Carbon Air² a race-day choice amongst top athletes worldwide.

What’s New? - 3 panel compression lining offers the ultimate freedom of movement, opening the compression across the chest and liberating the athlete’s breathing. - One piece construction – improved fit, lighter weight and higher hydrodynamics reducing drag and taking on less water On Fit: Swimmers looking for maximum comfort and a familiar fit, start here. Stay with your practice suit size for the most flexible fit or size down one size for enhanced compression.

Available in closed and open back.

OUR POWERSKIN CARBON AIR² 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.


flexibilityflexibility

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

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

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


FEEL THE LIGHTNESS

Carbon Band compression technology is integrated into one piece of fabric for an unparalleled second-skin sensation.

COMFORTABLE COMPRESSION

Horizontal Carbon Bands lock down at a critical stretch point to provide light compression, core stability and power when and where it’s needed.

SECOND SKIN EFFECT

Thanks to the absence of multiple seams, the Carbon Air² offers exceptional comfort and flexibility, and is easier to put on than traditional racing suit designs.

RE-DESIGNED FOR GREATER FREEDOM

The internal lining consists of three separate panels to provide greater range of motion. This results in less compression across the chest for women’s suits, and a reduced pressure on the hips for ample flexibility.
