Powerskin carbon pro. Arena.

Powerskin Carbon Pro, the first racing suit integrating a carbon cage to deliver Intelligent muscle compression, combined with unprecedented fit. Compression in a competition suit is associated with increased support, efficiency and power, but high compression can have a restricting effect on movement. The swimmer in motion is also a dynamic form with complex requirements for support and compression. How can you get more of the benefits of compression, without its drawbacks? Squeezing the swimmer harder will not help! To deliver a breakthrough solution to the compression challenge, arena has incorporated carbon fibre into the weave of the Powerskin Carbon Pro fabric. Known for its unique structural and mechanical properties, the carbon fibre locks down when and where a critical stretch level is reached, while retaining the suit’s elasticity. This delivers a ramp-up in compression on those specific overextended zones, increasing support and control where and when they are needed without detracting from the swimmer’s mobility.
