POWER THROUGH YOUR NEXT GOAL
Meet the new POWERSKIN THUNDER: the wetsuit designed to provide the best mix of buoyancy, flexibility, thermal protection and comfort.
THE ESSENCE OF WETSUITS
DURABLE & WATERPROOF CONSTRUCTION
The wetsuit’s seam construction is 100% waterproof and durable, for a secure and long-lasting hold. All seams are bonded together using waterproof glue, then double-blind stitched for maximum strength. The stitchings only pass through half of the neoprene material. This way the surface of the neoprene is not compromised, resulting in a totally waterproof hold.
ZERO CHAFE COLLAR
The THUNDER wetsuit features a low-profile collar that has flattened edges at the neckline and a soft internal fabric. Its unique design reduces friction when in contact with the skin, helping to prevent chafing.
The THUNDER wetsuit exclusively uses a Yamamoto elastic neoprene. The extreme flexibility of this #38 quality material translates to a wide range of motion and unrestricted feel that facilitates the swimmers’ natural movements.
APPROVED BY FINA, WORLD TRIATHLON (ITU), IRONMAN, & USAT
Thanks to its elevated standards of excellence, the THUNDER wetsuit is the first contemporary high-end wetsuit to fulfill all requirements set out by FINA (International Federation of Swimming), World Triathlon (formerly ITU - International Triathlon Union), World Triathlon Corporation (WTC - owners of the Ironman series) and USAT (USA Triathlon).
The distribution of neoprene density is intended to reduce resistance in the water and add buoyancy.
This allows the swimmer to experience a more effortless stroke while maintaining a streamlined body position.
The thickest 4mm neoprene layer is placed within the core of the suit’s construction for a locked-in level of support.
The upper chest and legs receive a 3mm thick layer for a comprehensive thermal protection.
The shoulders and arms have a lighter 2mm neoprene coverage for increased freedom of movement.
ABOUT YAMAMOTO NEOPRENE
arena Powerskin THUNDER wetsuits are made entirely with Yamamoto Limestone neoprene, a durable, lightweight and high-performance material.
The fabric has an extremely low water absorption rate, allowing the weight of the neoprene to remain nearly identical in wet and dry conditions. This provides added warmth and flexibility in comparison to other wetsuits which are thicker and more weighed down.
Panels of neoprene in varying thicknesses are strategically placed on the suit to expertly produce the optimal balance between flexibility and buoyancy, without sacrificing durability.
