Limited Edition USA Carbon Ultra Open Back Tech Swimsuit
Ultra Link System (Inner Layer)
- Housed in the inner layer, this system is designed to optimize the athlete’s physiology by connecting key muscle groups and isolating upper and lower body movements.
- A design based on a deep knowledge of the key muscle chains that help in keeping a streamlined body position.
- Employs a continuous tape that anchors on the muscle chain in the upper body for extra support.
- Links the ribs to the hips while still allowing freedom to rotate.
- Connects to the gluteus maximum, keeping the hips high and helping to reduce body tilt in the water.
- Delivers intelligent compression and anatomical support without limiting freedom of movement.
- Strategically-placed tapes create a brace which keeps the lower body and core muscles firm and supported while still allowing the upper body to rotate freely.
- This movement isolation increases athlete efficiency by allowing them to pivot mid-stroke with minimal additional rotation or loss of body position in the water.
- Designed to work with the external Ultra-Cage fabric to deliver targeted area of additional compression on the inside of the suit, supporting key muscles and aligning them with the direction of movement.
- The multi-layer panels streamline body shape, keeping it stable and high in the water, which in turn reduces drag and minimizes water resistance, particularly in areas normally prone to turbulence.
Ultra-Cage Fabric (Outer Layer)
- The Carbon-Ultra uses a new outer shell fabric, which delivers intelligent compression of the body, the hallmark of the carbon family of suits.
- Contains three times more carbon than before, the fabric is woven more tightly so it can more accurately conform to the athlete’s shape–distributing pressure uniformly.
- Helps the swimmer channel their energy more efficiently by reducing any nonessential effort and movement.
- Women’s tech suit.
- Open back design.
- Short leg cut.
- American flag graphic in center of chest.
- Spliced USA colors on sides.
- Intelligent muscle compression:
- This protective grid regulates stretching and stiffens when the fabric reaches a critical stress level.
- Increases support and control where needed.
- 50% Polyamide / 47% Elastane / 3% Carbon Fiber.
