The special Carbon Flex World Championships Edition 2015 is being released to showcase the year’s premier FINA swimming event in Kazan, Russia.
Carbon Flex retains carbon technology’s core components – Intelligent Compression and the Power Return System – strategic movement of the seams gives the swimmer greater flexibility through the creation of a “flexline” across the hip flexors, which offers less resistance during hip flexion on starts, turns, and breaststroke kicks, and delivers complete freedom of movement around the hips, glutes, and shoulders.
From a design perspective, the suit incorporates minor updates to the baseline Carbon Flex: an optimized design of the low profile bonded seams and new colour versions. In detail, the rear taped seam stops at a point along the front taped seam. The front taped seam flows around the side of the torso and finishes at the centre back of the suit. This creates a sort of “X” construction at the back. The benefit of this is that the tension of all the seams is anchored at the back center of the suit creating a perfect connection between the lower half the suit and the upper half of the suit. This link provides a perfect torsional platform off which the swimmer can leverage their strokes and kicks.
