TYR Avictor Technology Guide


Born out of a collaboration between the industry's top experts and the world's most elite swimmers, the Avictor showcases an unprecedented combination of advanced features. The FINA-approved suit maximizes performance and gives athletes the ultimate advantage over their competition. The Avictor is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A of imported goods, which adds to the long list of features that sets it apart from its competitors.

Cutting-edge Hydrosphere Technology optimizes body position by causing water to surround the fabric of the suit, creating a visible hydrospheric effect. As a result, drag is reduced and speed and efficiency are boosted.

Proprietary coating repels water and keeps the suit try and compressive, keeping swimmers lightweight and fast. This ensures athletes experience a dry, lightweight and comfortable fit for every race.

Super Flex Bonding stretches and recovers with the body allowing free range of motion and compression at the same time. The fully bonded seams conform to the swimmer's body and provide a durable, 360 degree stretch. The result is a precisely fitted, ultra compressive suit that maximizes core stabilization that won't restrict natural movement

Hi, I recently purchased a tyr avictor tech suit and I was wondering if it is a suitable suit for a breaststroke and freestyle swimmer.

The TYR avictor is a great choice as well as the Carbon Flex/Flex VX.

Hi there, I am a backstroker who competes in the 50, 100, and 200 and was wondering which suit would feel the best in the 50/100 while also not crushing my legs in the 200?

Thanks!

Of the Speedo LZR X and TYR Avictor Venom, which suit offers more compression? For distance free and 400Im is compression or range of motion more important? Trying to choose between the two. I don't see many distance swimmers in Arena so I've never considered it.

Please choose the TYR Avictor.

Hi Iva!

To get the proper size on the item, please take the actual chest, waist, hip and torso measurements in inches and then compare it to the sizing chart of the item as different brands use different sizing chart.

My daughter is a high school breast stroker. Her previous tech suits have been inexpensive (TRY thresher) and she loves the fit, but has no other tech suit to compare it to. I want to get her a higher performance suit for this year. She believe water repellency is critical and is leaning towards the TRY avictor. I was looking at the Arena carbon air or flex with it's better compression. Which is more likely to have a bigger impact on time - increased compression or increased repellency?

Hi Nichole,


Arena Carbon Flex provides and increases compression which results a bigger impact on time.

My 11 year daughter(Very competitive swimmer) is 5 feet tall, 204lbs and wears a size 28 regular competition and training suits. I am planning a buying her an Avictor Tech Suit and have been told by others to buy her 2 sizes down to a 24. Or should I size by TYR size chart? What are your recommendations? What are the differnences between the different Avictor suits, is it just color patterns? Thanks for your help!

Hello Ken,
We recommend following the sizing chart. The most important measurement to follow is the chest. Some swimmers size down for more compression but if you do this, you risk ripping a very expensive suit so we always prefer you follow the sizing chart. The technology is the same for all of the Avictor suits, some just have prints and some are solid.

Hi,
I'm a 100/200 breaststroker/butterflier and I was wondering what tech suit you'd recommend for me? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Adam!

For 100/200 Breast Stroker/ Butterflier I would recommend the Arena Flex VX. It offers great flexibility in the hips as well as the compression needed! You can view the Flex VX's using the link below:

Hey, I am a very competitive swimmer and a major freestyler and breaststroker. I am looking for a good tech suit that can offer good compression/speed, but also good movement. The two suits I have narrowed it down too are the Arena Carbon flex VX and the TYR Avictor Prelude. Which of these suits would be better for the stoke I like? Also if there is any other suit that would be better for me please let me know. Thanks!

Hello Milo,
Both suits are great and will work for your swim style. The Arena Carbon Flex VX has more compression for optimal performance.

The suit should fit pretty snug. If it was very easy to put on, it's most likely a little bit too big.

You will need to take your measurements and compare them to the sizing chart for the Avictor. Each brand runs a little differently.

Hello Evan,
Yes! You want to make sure you and the suit are dry, flip the grippers up, and gently pull the suit off.

How many races does an avictor usually last?
swimoutlet.com
3 years ago.
Hi Laura! The truth is, not very long. That doesn’t mean your investment gets tossed in the trash though. Let’s do a little math to get started. Say your championship meet runs four days and you are competing in two events a day plus relays, and don’t forget timed finals. You could be looking at upwards of 20 swims! Plus warm-up and warm-down makes for a lot of time in the water. Each time you are in the water your tech suit degrades bit by bit. To reap all the benefits of a tech suit you want them fresh and crisp, new out of the box. If you take excellent care of them they will certainly reward you. This means rinsing and air drying them after each use. Never put them in a dryer. Ever. The harsh truth is don’t expect to get more than two full meets out of a tech suit.

Hi, just want to clarify. I am wearing a Arena Carbon PRO size 30. And i want to get TYR Avictor, however, i am not sure about what size to get. Can you get me through?
swimoutlet.com

Hello!
Just going based on you wearing a size 30 on the Carbon Pro, you may be a size 26 on the TYR Avictor. These two brands size very differently. It's always best to take your measurements and compare to the size chart for the Avictor suit for most accurate size.
Benjamin

Will size 27 be able to fit in?
SwimOutlet.com
3 years ago.
It's possible 27 would fit just going based on your size with Carbon Pro it would be a little bigger in waist but hip would be about same size. It would be best to provide your waist and hip measurement for more accurate size suggestion.

I am a sprint freestyler (50, 100) and I am trying to decide between the Speedo LZR Racer X and the TYR Avictor what do you guys recommend and why? Also I am male 6'2" 170 lbs.
swimoutlet.com

Hi Henry! Either is good but the Avictor won't have us much compression, so it's a trade off between compression/speed reduction and range of motion.

Hi Lucas,
We recommend the high waist jammer since it has a longer outseam and covers more it does provide a little more compression.
