Maximised support seams promoting better body positioning and increased muscular awareness.
The suit is made up of 2 new fabrics. LZR Racer CompreX & LZR Racer PulseLite. The LZR Racer CompreX is our NEW one way stretch fabric technology that stretches vertically, allowing swimmers freedom of movement during their stroke. It is resistant to horizontal stretch providing high compression and reducing drag. The LZR Racer PulseLite fabric is lightweight, powerful and durable providing support along with flexibility. This makes breathing and arm-movement during strokes easier.
Laser cutting of the layered core liner uncovers the single layer Ab-Activator panels improving sensitivity to water, that encourages lower abdominal muscle activation. This proprioceptive feedback promotes optimal body position in the water.
Support Seam Construction
Maximised support seams enhance the link between muscles of the upper and lower body. They connect major muscles of the thigh, back and shoulders. The support seams intersects at the hip bone, allowing rotation, then runs across the lower back with an identifiable ‘X’ shape. The construction of the seams provides feedback to the swimmer, helping to maintain a better position in the water and a high-leg kick.
Laser Cut Straps
The unique laser cut strap controls the stretch and comfort over the shoulder. Using a flat, sandwich construction, the straps provide the optimal balance between a secure and comfortable fit.
The Speedo Aqualab team carried out extensive 3D scanning of elite athletes all over the world, running computer simulations of athletes' shape, conducting research and calculations on drag and resistance, and thoroughly testing theories, findings and technologies.
