We are proud to announce the launch of our comprehensive Powerskin range of carbon racing suits for 2020 to satisfy the diverse needs of all swimmers. Introducing two brand new suits – the Powerskin Carbon Glide and Core FX – the range also includes the Carbon Air2 and Carbon Duo, which had successful releases earlier this year, thus giving competitive swimmers four options, each featuring different attributes and benefits.
For over 45 years, arena has worked in collaboration with the world’s top athletes, universities and innovation centres to develop highly technical suits so that the swimmer can at their very best when they need it most: during the race. This modus operandi has enabled the company to develop a keen understanding that each swimmer’s needs are unique, and that they deserve to compete in a suit that reflects this diversity, whether they are looking for superior glide, outright power, supreme lightness, or women in search of something that’s “just right”. Underpinning the company’s mission is the fundamental objective of aiding the athlete in striving for their ultimate goal: the feeling of victory. The result is arena’s most comprehensive technical swimsuit range ever, allowing the athlete to choose whichever is best for them as they reach for the wall, victorious.
“With the Olympics now just 8 months away, we want to give swimmers time to prepare for the Games in the best suits for their own needs,” said Giuseppe Musciacchio, arena co-CEO. “Our Powerskin Carbon suits are designed to cover specific swimmer preferences according to stroke, race distance, body type and personal choice. These are all things we’ve worked on with our own champions, and the result is a range that we believe will help to make heroes in Tokyo. We’re proud of the fact that it’s without doubt the widest range of top-performing suits on the market.”
All four suits in the range include arena’s trademark Carbon technology with Intelligent Compression, through which the fabric’s interwoven carbon fibres lock down when a critical stretch level is reached, maximizing compression on over-extended zones, and increasing support and control when and where it’s needed.
