  • The power, speed, and compression of the POWERSKIN Carbon Flex VX made Gold, Silver, and World Record moments in Rio and was the choice of Silver Medalist Mitch Larkin as well as the World’s Fastest Breaststroker, Adam Peaty.

    The Flex VX combines arena's patented V-Flex construction - designed with revolutionary placement of seams to provide maximum range of motion - with POWERSKIN Intelligent Compression and Power Return Construction technologies for optimized performance. The fit has been improved to provide more room around the thighs and the hips, while maintaining that locked-in feel and streamlined hydrodynamics. Stay at your current training suit size for fitting into this one.

    Fit Tips

    • Most customers find this true to their training suit size.

    5 Review Stars By MT23

    Pretty darn tight but fit really well on my body once i got it on (practice suit is a 28 and i ordered a 28). I've had problems with other suits in the past because i have very deep v lines and water seeps in, but this suit didnt have that problem. I havent owned many other tech suits, but this one was great and helped my drop time in my 100 backstroke.

  • 5/7/2016 EXTREMELY good suit

    5 Review Stars By Xinping G.

    This suit is the best suit that you can get. Although it's a bit pricey, it's a good investment to make if you have unwilling parents (me). The one thing that you need to make sure you are aware of is that you need the suit to be extra tight, so size down from your original size. When you go to put it on, it will feel extremely tight, almost to the point where you think you're sure you're going to break it. THESE SUITS WILL NOT BREAK!!!! The suit is incredibly resistant to tear so when you put it on, don't be afraid to put in some force. But be sensible when you put this on, obviously enough force will tear so use your common sense.

  • 4/1/2015 Excellent Suit

    5 Review Stars By RJR

    I purchased this suit at the request of my son- 16 year old breast stroke  and freestyle swimmer.  He LOVES it.  His training suit is a 28 and his old elite suit was a 26.  He got a 30 in this suit.  The 28 was just too small.  It will be very tight.  Seems to not give as much.  It was used in three meets in the past 5 weeks with only a slight issue with the banding at the top.  Loves it.

  • 3/3/2015 Carbon Flex Great Suit

    5 Review Stars By Mitchell M.

    I bought this suit for my championship meets nearing the end of my sophomore year in high school. I'm a breaststroke and I got the flex over the pro primarily because my teammates told me the flex is better for breaststroke. Nearing the end of my season I ended up using this bad boy 4 times. Every single time improving in my 100yard breast. Going from a 1:04.4, 1:03.96, to a final time of 1:03.32. I've put it away now until next season but at the end of my fourth use it was still very repellent and the water dripped right off. Obviously there was some difference from the 1st time I used it and the 4th but it was still very good by the 4th time. The thing I'm questioning the most is that my friends told me to get a smaller size then the size I got. I got mine in a size 28, my regular speedo is size 28 so they were saying I should size down. Even though I got it in a 28 it still was very tight!! I recommend not sizing down and sticking with your regular competition suit size. The suit looks stunning. At my sectional meet now one had this suit and I got comments about it all time, people telling me it looked awesome. In the end, I would definitely recommend this suit especially if your main events are breaststroke or I.M for that matter.
