The Fastskin3 Racing System: A ground-breaking advancement in swim racing wear. Break records without breaking the rules.
The Fastskin3 Racing System- suit, cap, and goggles - is a unique, full body approach to swim racing wear. Combined, the pieces create one incredibly hydrodynamic, comfortable, and stabilizing setup. Developed in Speedo®'s innovative Aqualab, Speedo has focused their efforts on developing a suit swimmers want to wear, not a just an expensive suit brands want swimmers to buy. Consultation with experts such as optical engineers, hydrodynamics experts, and swim coaches led to a whole-body (and mind) approach to the FS3 Swim System in which all three pieces of the system are engineered to work together, unlike traditional suits, caps, and goggles that stand alone.
The Fastskin3 swim cap was developed using 3D GCI head-scanning technology to produce a design that hugs the contours of the head, wrinkle-free. The cap is the first to feature an IQ fit profile, which reduces full body drag force by 3.4%. The cap also features a new "Hair Management System"; a separate bonded fabric cap, worn under the silicone racing cap, whose material fills the gap in the back of the neck to create a totally smooth, drag-free surface.
Fastskin 3 goggles feature a revolutionary new design and are unlike any racing goggle on the market. Their Divestream outer profile and IQ fit fill in the contours of the face, thereby eliminating the drag that traditional goggle designs generate. A 3D sealing strap ensures comfort and unparalleled fit. The wide angle lens offers 180 degrees of crystal clear peripheral vision.
The Fastskin3 suits feature zoned and graduated compression, offering stability and muscle support where needed, which then transitions to thinner, more flexible fabric around the joints. The suit's body stability web is a network of bonded seams and panels that offer incredibly precise support that helps swimmers maintain form and streamlined position at all times. Suits come in neck-to-knee styles for women, and a high-rise jammer for men.
Fit-point markers throughout the cap, goggles, and suit help swimmers adjust for the perfect alignment, yet another detail that helps athletes enter their race with confidence and peace of mind. Combined, the Fastskin3 Racing System components become one fluid tool that in turn helps athletes become one with the water. Michael Phelps, 8-time Olympic Gold medalist, says the suit makes him, "feel completely at one with the water." The Speedo Fastskin3 Racing System is approved by FINA and will tested by the best athletes in the world at the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games.
