ARENA Powerskin Carbon Ultra Open Back Female Kneeskin
The Powerskin Carbon-Ultra, which incorporates a new level of support and movement management with an internal structure, the ULTRA-LINK SYSTEM designed to optimize the athlete's physiology. By connecting key muscle groups and isolating upper and lower body movements, this revolutionary system increases the swimmer's efficiency and improves their body position in the water. And by targeting specific compression zones, it further supports and streamlines the body to reduce turbulence and drag.
In addition, the suit's outer shell integrates an ULTRA-CAGE with three times more carbon than before, enhancing the range's trademark intelligent compression without compromising reach and freedom of movement.
The X-Pivot feature delivers intelligent compression and anatomical support without limiting freedom of movement. Its design draws on a fundamental grasp of body mechanics to isolate movement in the upper and lower body, strategically-placed tapes create a brace which keeps the lower body and core muscles firm and supported while still allowing the upper body to rotate freely.
This movement isolation increases athlete efficiency by allowing them to pivot mid-stroke with minimal additional rotation or loss of body position in the water. As a result, the core body position remains stable even as the upper body rotates and flexes during the stroke.
Ultra-Compression Panels are designed to work with the external Ultra-Cage fabric to deliver targeted areas of additional compression on the inside of the suit, supporting key muscles and aligning them with the
direction of movement.
The multi-layer panels also streamline body shape, keeping it stable and high in the water, which in turn reduces drag and minimizes water resistance, particularly in areas normally prone to turbulence. These factors all contribute to maximizing the swimmer's efficiency.
