Arena POWERSKIN Carbon Pro
You train. You work. You strain, and you stretch. You expect a suit that does all of this, and more. That's why Arena is proud to introduce the world's most advanced racing suit, the Arena POWERSKIN Carbon Pro.
The Carbon Pro maximizes your performance with its breakthrough technology combining the benefits of compression - providing support where you need it most - with the freedom of elasticity.
Why Do I Need Compression?
Compression in a competition suit provides increased support, efficiency and power, but too much compression can have a restricting effect on movement. The swimmer in motion is also a dynamic form with complex requirements for support and compression. How can you get more of the benefits of compression without its drawbacks?
The answer is Carbon.
Arena has delivered a breakthrough solution to achieve the benefits of compression by incorporating carbon fiber in the weave of the POWERSKIN Carbon Pro fabric. Known for its unique structural and mechanical properties, Carbon fiber locks down when and where a critical stretch level is reached, while retaining the suit's elasticity. This delivers a ramp-up in compression on those specific overextended zones, while increasing support and control where and when they are needed - all without detracting from the swimmer's mobility.
The Magic Behind The Material: Carbon
Carbon fiber is made up of very thin strands of Carbon - even thinner than human hair. Carbon is five times as strong as steel and twice as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less.
In collaboration with Kinetech Labs, Arena has developed a unique, top performing and powerful fabric by weaving elastomer yarns across a special carbon grid. The strength and stiffness of the carbon threads serve as a protective web that regulates stretching by stiffening the fabric once a critical stress level is reached, thus preventing uneven stress damage. The ability of our suit to support and control the human body in the high performance world of competitive swimming is nothing short of thrilling. The POWERSKIN Carbon Pro's revolutionary technology is approved by both FINA and USA Swimming.
