WHY BUY THIS PRODUCT?
This hydrodynamic top will help you swim faster in triathlons and open water competitions that do not permit wetsuits. It is a highly technical hydrophobic fabric we call Liftfoil3™. It has no lining.
This swim-specific top has no rubberized material, no polyurethane, and no neoprene. It abides to WTC's recent ruling on swimskins, speedskins, swim apparel...whatever WTC wants to call it.
It also abides to USAT requirements for swim tops.
Our tests have shown varied improvements of swim times of about 2-4 seconds per 100 meters, depending on the individual, over wearing a conventional swimsuit. This translates to 1'00" for 1500 meters and 2'40" for a swim of 4000 meters.
This garment is not designed for repeated use as a swimsuit in a chlorinated pool.
