New FINA Approved Racing Kneelength Technology by Maru

Fina Approved Maru XT1 Kneelengths

Our goal at swimmer.com.au is to bring athletic and fitness swimmers the latest swim technology news, so swimmers can select the best gear available on the market. Non-swim enthusiasts beware - you are about to be bored by this blog!

All swimmers know that each brand tries to top the next to provide swimmers with materials that provide maximum performance. It is up to you, as a swimmer, to decipher and select which brand provides the best qualities that match your needs. Let us help you make an informed decision by going into the details of the latest material made available by Maru.

Maru Swimwear released their latest Xtra Life Lyrca material for their FINA approved racing kneelength swimwear for women and girls. Lyrca material is a fibre that stretches up to seven time its length then springs back to its original shape. This type of shape retention is important for swimmers when a baggy piece of racing swimwear can be the difference between first to touch out or the last. The stretchiness is important to allow free mobility in the pool, because any restraint is going to slow your lap time down.

Maru's Extra Life Lyrca material is made especially for athletic swimmers. Maru created and tested the swimwear to retain shape, prevent tears and hold true colours. Maru gets that swimmers spend a lot of hours at the pool, and they made a material that will last the intensive hours athletic swimmers spend in the water. Bagging, tearing and colour fading are not an issue you should expect from the Extra Life Lyrca material for longer than 200 hours of use. Athletic swimmers often spend more time than 200 hours a season, but the Maru material outlasts the 200 hours with lasting high grade performance.

Check out additional performance features by following the links to these racing kneelength swimsuits for women and girls. With Maru, the features of the swimwear don’t stop at the material, but extend into every aspect of the racing swimwear.


Check Out These FINA Approved Racing Jammers

Fina Approved Maru XT1 Jammers


Maru released FINA approved racing jammers for men and boys this 2013 that look awesome! On top of having a sleek back look with complimentary lines that follow the contour’s of the swimmer’s leg muscles, they also have some awesome features that we’re excited about at swimmer.com.au.

Before we get into the details of the features, here is quick access to the top Maru FINA approved racing swimwear available at swimmer.com.au this 2013:

For those who want to hear a little more about the FINA Approved Racing Jammers from Maru please continue on.

Xtra Life Lycra Material
All of the Pro Maru racing jammers are made with this advanced technology material that is perfect for the needs of every athletic swimmer. The material provides extra stretchiness with a capability to stretch to 7 times its length, but the material still immediately rebounds to the original size. This gets rid of the infamous bagginess issue that comes with racing swimwear.

Optimal Muscle Compression
Athletic swimmers know about the importance of compression to reduce drag, but many may not know about the value of limiting the movement of muscles. With the long hours athletic swim in the pool, lactic acid frequently can cause soreness or cramping. By compressing the muscles we prevent those problems for faster swimming and quicker recovery.

50% Thinner Material
When a race comes down to just a millisecond, it becomes clear that any little advantage can make the difference between being the second or first to touch out. By reducing the thickness of the material it reduces weight that’ll let you reduce your lap time just a little bit. Despite the material being 50% thinner, the durable material does still provides coverage for parts we may not everyone and their grandmother seeing.

Silicone Gripper on Legs
This grip that goes around the legs fits snugly around the leg like a silicone swim cap. This means that it ensures the jammers stay in place, but does not cut of the circulation to the leg. There is nothing more annoying than a pair of racing jammers that are too tight around the legs or too loose around the legs. Maru designed racing jammers to try to eliminate this annoying problem that plagues female and male swimmers around the world.

Teflon Coating
The Teflon coating repels water to cut your time, but it also has some additional benefits you may not think about. Ever put on wet jammers for practice? It isn’t fun is it? With Teflon coating you reduce the water that gets into the jammers, so that they dry a lot faster. That means dealing with soggy swimwear a lot less which is something that we can all be happy about!



Summer Fun

Maru Swimwear

My personal favourite training one piece swimsuit is from the Maru 2013 collection. The Girls Lottie One Piece features a design with a stunning collage of stylized melons and orchids. The design with the watermelons reminds me of all the fun I’ve had during this summer so far.

We all have our personal favourites when it comes to picking out swimwear. With so many selections of styles it really can be hard to come down to the final decision.

With Maru styles, it is fun to gaze through all of the chlorine resistant swimwear to find the perfect look for by the pool, at the beach or for the next swim meet. If you are looking for racing swimwear, check out the chlorine resistant kneelength swimsuits. If you are looking for swimwear for everyday training, you should checkout Maru’s collection of training one piece swimsuits.

Some swimmers choose their training swimwear by the cut more than the design. Others keep fashion in mind first. Some just want to get the gruelling process of shopping for swimwear over with, so they can get back to the pool already! Let us know how you pick out your swimwear in the comment box below!
