    Rio medalists and world champion sprinters Emily Seebohm and Ruta Meilutyte prefer the power, speed, and freedom of movement of the Arena Women's Powerskin Carbon Flex VX Closed Back Kneeskin Tech Suit Swimsuit.

    The Flex VX combines arena's patented V-Flex construction - designed with revolutionary placement of seams to provide maximum hip mobility - with POWERSKIN Intelligent Compression and Power Return Construction technologies for optimized performance. The fit has been improved from previous iterations of the Carbon Flex to provide more room around the thighs and the hips while maintaining that locked-in feel and streamlined hydrodynamics.


    • FINA Approved
    • Fully taped and bonded seam construction offers maximum durability and hydrodynamics
    • Multi-panel construction uses anatomically placed anchor points and high-strength elastic tapes to create Tension Lines along the back of upper legs
    • Tension Lines provide a lifting effect to help maintain body position and alleviate drag and resistance from fatigued legs
    • Enhanced range of motion and flexibility in shoulder straps
    • New X-Construction provides added flexibility in under arm opening, providing enhanced shoulder mobility, range of motion, and comfort
    • Relocated anchor points along mid-back provide optimum lift for upper and lower leg tension lines and enhance body position for maximum efficiency and drag reduction
    • V-Flex System eliminates lower leg side seams, delivering maximum flexibility and range of motion in the hips and glutes
    • Allows for unrestricted flexion and extension in all direction
    • Proper compression in a racing suit is the key for drag reduction, efficiency, and power
    • Intelligent Muscle Compression locks down when and where a critical stress level is reaching, maximizing support on over-extended zones when and where needed while retaining elasticity and freedom of movement
    • The world's first technical suits with high-strength carbon fiber woven into a lightweight high-stretch nylon fabric
    • Strategic placement of internal bonded seams around the hips, quads, and hamstrings store potential energy upon flexion and release this energy on extension to maximize efficiency, power, and speed in kicks, dives, and turns
    • NFHS/NCAA compliant logos
    • Cosed back, short leg design.

    2 Review Stars By AH

    Competitive swimmer here. Has great compression but the tech suit taping crisscrossing weirdly at the waist making a me look like I have fat falling out even though I have a very small amount of body fat. Without that would be a great suit.

  • 9/19/2019 Nice suit but not much compression

    2 Review Stars By Wendy

    This is probably the most durable tech suit available on the market - but it just doesn’t have the needed compression. It fits true to size but there’s not much opportunity to size down to get the compression because you won’t be able to move. So sad it had to be returned because it’s a beautiful color [OPENBRK]red[CLOSEBRK] and would be easily seen on deck in the sea of black suits.
