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.
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.
The combination of high-density woven nylon and infused Carbon Fiber gives all Carbon Series suits advanced structural resistance and power.
Carbon Series suits offer a much longer lifespan than traditional race suits thanks to Carbon Fiber’s inherent resistance to chlorine.
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.
Super-light and ultra-low-profile, our exclusive new Hydroglide fabric dramatically reduces surface drag for sensational underwater glide.
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.
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.
Carbon Fiber infused lining, placed strategically to activate major muscle groups, provides an added feeling of support, body-hold, and streamlined speed.
