Powerskin Carbon Core FX Limited Edition Paltrinieri Jammer - NOT NCAA/High School compliant
OUR POWERSKIN CARBON CORE FX 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 POWER
A new twin taping structure provides a lifting effect in the legs, and all-over Carbon Cage compression technology allows for a powerful sensation of full-body stabilization.
Horizontal and vertical carbon fibre grids deliver strong and long-lasting all-over muscle compression for a locked-in feel.
HIGH BODY POSITION
Utilizing a novel twin-taping structure on the back of the legs, the Carbon Core FX gives a lifting effect that allows athletes to maintain a high and streamlined body position in the water, helping to combat muscle fatigue.
UPPER BODY FLEXIBILITY
A re-designed suit lining helps to relieve pressure in targeted areas, delivering superior upper body flexibility without the need to sacrifice all-over compression and support.
All-over Carbon Cage fabric, improved lining design, and an internal taping system deliver maximum core stability and body alignment with an evenly-distributed compression profile and locked-in feel.
