Thanks to the thinness and higher content of Lycra (29%), of its X-FLAT fabric, Powerskin ST ensures outstanding comfort and dries very quickly. X-FLAT fabric also guarantees excellent durability in chlorinated water and protection against ultra violet rays (50+ UPF). Powerskin XP delivers higher speed in swimming, thanks to its revolutionary Z- Raptor + high-tech and ultra-light fabric (120 gr/m), which makes the suit smoother and more hydro-dynamic than any comparable suit from competition. Thanks to Z-Raptor + fabric features (35% of Lycra , with 100% horizontal / vertical elasticity), Powerskin XP delivers superior compression on the swimmers body, still guaranteeing maximum freedom of movement. Powerskin XP also significantly reduces surface drag thanks to its pattern, optimized stitching and superior Teflon coating. Powerskin R-EVO is a technological jewel, which has proven to be the fastest and the lightest racing swimsuit ever made with a 100% textile material. Thanks to the high-tech, ultra-light Arena Stealth fabric (99 gr/m) all Powerskin R-EVO suits weight less than 100g, guaranteeing optimal compression combined with unmatchable comfort. Powerskin R-EVO is the one and only racing suit featuring the patented Arena one-piece design which, in combination with an advanced thermo-bonding system, allows a 100% stitch-less construction, with zero seams on the front.
