    When you're wearing a Tracer Light, you're getting one of the most dynamic technical suits on the market.


    • FINA approved.
    • Tracer Stress-Point Reinforcement: All stress points along the suit are reinforced with micro-stitch tacking to ensure suit integrity even under extreme strains.
    • Tracer Range of Motion (ROM) Straps: Stitched and firmly reinforced eight times for a sturdy hold that won't split, allowing for fluidity and explosiveness.
    • Tracer Power Mesh: Liner is made from .4mm Poly micro-mesh, increasing the specific strength of the suit by a dramatic factor without escalating weight.
    • Tracer Pattern: Muscle mapping seams fit along the contours of the body to provide superior fit and reduce drag.
    • Tracer Four-Way Lock Seams: 18 stitch-per-inch seams are incredibly durable, low-profile, and offer superior range of motion (ROM).
    • Tracer Fabric: Shell and lining features a lightweight, hydrophobic and quick-drying fabrication. Woven with a powerful micro-filament, it has enhanced stretch properties and memory retention to promote longevity and form-fit.
    • Tracer Compression Panels: Lock in the core with up to 25% increase in zoned compression vs. a typical Lycra® suit.
    • Tracer Bonding: Smooth, flat-bonded seams outline the suit to create a stitchles design that provides a fluid, drag-reducing fit.


    • 79% Nylon / 21% LYCRA® Fiber.

  • 7/18/2013 BEST SUIT EVER

    rating star By Eliza

    I wore this suits in all my meets. It is super light weight and fits like a second skin. Im a breastroker and i love how it glides me through the water. It is super durable also. I wore it for over 25 swims and to almost 10 different meets where i am sitting in the suit for over 6 hours straight. This suit is better than the $300 plus suits! It doesn't stretch out at all and fits true to size. It also looks professional. i HIGHLY recommend this suit to anyone!

    Ordered for my daughter championship meet. Worked so well it is going to cost me 700 more dollars to send her to Nationals. Two thumbs up.

  • 2/12/2013 Not a great fit

    rating star By Suzanne

    I bought the suit following the sizing guidelines exactly.  While the suit fit great from the waist down, there was so much gap at the shoulder straps and in the chest, it would have been worse to wear this suit than a regular suit.  On a plus, Swim Outlet!  Such great service, the return was handled with no problems.

  • 3/13/2014 Nice suit!

    rating star By julie W.

    I bought this suit for my daughter's state championship meet.  It was extremely hard to get on which is how it should be...Unfortunately when she tried it in the water, she said it wouldn't work because it was too loose and scooping water in the front.  She trains in a size 32 and competes in a 30 and we ordered this suit in a 28.  So I guess a size smaller size might have worked but she swam in her Dolphin Platinum 2 knee suit from the previous season.  This suit is also available at swimoutlet and I can't say enough good things about this suit!!! And a size 28 was perfect.  
    Back to the  TYR -The shoulder straps are stretchy like a waist band but smooth out completely once the suit is on.
    And the side panels are sheer, like heavy duty panty hose - thought that was kind of interesting.  Not good nor bad but this might be why the suit felt so big in the water.

  • 3/27/2013 Nice suit

    rating star By Shopping Mama

    This suit fit my daughter well.  It was true to size, although she intentionally ordered 3 sizes down from her practice suit size.  We returned it and chose to go with another style because she was concerned about the potential drag of so many external seams.

  • 3/12/2013 the neckline of this suit comes up to far on the neck

  • 3/11/2013 Inconsistent durablility

    rating star By jennifer e.

    My daughter wore this brand new suit in a State Championship meet.  After wearing it for 2 races she noticed a small hole on the outer layer of the seam. On the 3rd race a large hole broke through to the second layer with her skin showing.   Unfortunately she didn't wear it for the entire meet. It just didn't last. The suit was defective.  I contacted Customer Service from the Aquatic Center and within an hour I had a call back. The customer service was outstanding.  She did receive a replacement suit which she wore to the Sectional meet which was 2 weeks later.  The second suit never tore a hole and lasted all weekend.

  • 2/25/2013 SUCCESS

    rating star By Beth

    Purchased this suit for my daughter. She swims the 500 free and wore this at Championships and took 13.77 seconds off her time! Amazing. She also took 3.4 secs off her 200 free and 1 second off her 100 breast.  The feeling that it is filling with water that others are talking about is the Bubble effect.  It is the purpose of the suit.......She was Glowing this weekend!!

Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
