ARENA POWERSKIN CARBON PRO TECHNICAL INFORMATION
 

Intelligent Compression Intelligent Muscle Compression
Intelligent muscle compression is achieved by a protective carbon grid. When the fabric reaches a critical stress level of stretch, the stiff strong carbon fibres combined with high stretch fabric result in a ‘lock-out’ effect. This lock out is regulated and stiffens enhancing compression on a swimmers over extended zones, increasing support and control where a swimmer needs it.
Power Return Construction Power Return Construction
New and improved internal taping placed in key areas of the Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro Mark 2 ensures greater power out of dives, faster kick and turn response time and a 'spring back' motion response out of each kick. The special taping also aids in pre-race stretching to assist the wearer through the toughest of final race moments. The power return construction is achieved without compromising on fit giving the swimmer a superior free and easy feeling against the skin.
Hydro Dynamic
The Powerskin Carbon Pro Mark 2 is the fastest swimsuit from Arena yet featuring a water repellent coating and low profile bonded seams that minimise surface drag and provide a superior standard in drag reduction.
