The Carbon Ultra is designed to give you maximum compression and maximum comfort. While high level compression tends to be more popular with sprinters, the zoned compression of Carbon Ultra makes this a favorite of Rio’s 1500 m Gold Medalist Gregorio Paltrinieri. Most swimmers find the ideal fit to be one size up from your practice suit size.
In addition to utilizing POWERSKIN Intelligent Compression and Power Return Construction technologies – the Carbon Ultra introduces new features designed to optimize your performance including:
INFINITY LOOP bonded seam construction with X-PIVOT POINT for perfect body position, body rotation control & stroke efficiency
ULTRA COMPRESSION PANELS in the legs and core for extra muscle support and targeted compression, when and where needed
CARBON ULTRA CAGE with 3 times the carbon fiber of any other arena Carbon suit for multi-direction, high-density, intelligent compression.

Tech Suits are specially designed for swimmers competing at high levels and should only be worn during elite final events, not preliminaries. The right size tech suit should fit tight, have a compressed feel and take time to put on.
Both the swimmer and tech suit should be dry when putting on. Fingernails should be trimmed and smooth to avoid damage to the suit.
Tech suits do NOT last a given time. Life of a suit is determined by frequency of use and care.
