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 and glutes.
From a design perspective, the suit incorporates minor updates to the baseline Carbon Flex: no taped seams finishing along the waistline. This means that there are no stress points along the waist which results in a better fit and feel around the waist.
In addition, the rear seam creates a “tension line” between the two anchor points, limiting stretch on this line and having a lifting effect on the back of the legs. This helps to keep the legs high in the water during freestyle, and to keep the knees from dropping during breaststroke and butterfly. The tension line also helps with pushing off the wall during the tumble turn.
