Introducing Energize - Advanced Compression Technology Swimwear for 2012

Mens Energize Speedsuit

UK - Aqua Sphere, the name behind some of the world's most innovative swimming kit, is proud to announce Energize, a collection of swimwear which is designed to allow competitors to reap the benefits of compression wear during a race as well as in training, resulting in a faster swim.

Comprising three models - a Training Suit, a SpeedSuit, and a TriSuit - the new Energize compression range from Aqua Sphere works by providing targeted muscle support, enhancing circulation to active muscles, and reducing muscle fatigue – thereby boosting an athlete’s power, speed and stamina. Targeted compression of various muscle groups reduces lactic acid build up, helping athletes to recover faster. “This is the first line of swimwear that utilizes advanced compression technology,” says Martin Newton, Sales & Marketing Manager, Aqua Sphere UK.“Typically water causes materials to lose compression but, excitingly, we’ve developed a brand new fabric that maintains its compression properties when wet. Using Aqua Sphere’s exclusive Dynamix fabric, specifically engineered with a hydrophobic surface coating and elastic fibres to support and compress muscles, Energize suits flatten the body using a strategic panel construction that targets specific muscle groups including the quadriceps, hamstrings, hips, waist and abdominal muscles. The result is reduced oscillation during swimming, resulting in a faster swim and improved bike and run performance during the remainder of a triathlon."

Energize Training Suit
(Ideal for triathlon training in the pool or open water as well as competitive swimming events) The FINA approved Energize Training Suit enhances active recovery by protecting core muscles and is ideal for swims following long runs or bike rides. Available in a short leg suit for women SRP £79.99 and training shorts for men SRP £52.50, each is designed with an anatomical fit to precisely contour to the body and allow for maximum freedom of movement whilst reducing drag and increasing swimming efficiency.

Energize SpeedSuit
Designed to be worn over a TriSuit for non-wetsuit races, the Energize SpeedSuit helps save energy by compressing the core muscles during the swim leg of a triathlon. Providing a streamlined fit that reduces drag, the SpeedSuit incorporates strategic side panels that work in conjunction with the Dynamix compression textile to reduce muscle vibrations and keep them fresh for the bike and run. Avid triathletes will appreciate the durable, deep-back pull zipper with attached leash that makes it very easy to pull on and off for quicker transitions. SRP £113.99

Energize TriSuit
(Ideal for sprint and Olympic distance triathlons) The Energize TriSuit is designed to be worn throughout the entire race. Incorporating the compression properties from the SpeedSuit which maximize speed and efficiency during the swim, the TriSuit also features an internal shelf bra for women, a bioactive fleece chamois for comfort on the bike and a zipped back pocket for easy storage and access to nutrition during the bike and run. SRP £129.99

The Energize range from Aqua Sphere is available in a wide range of men's and women's sizes (28 to 40) from 1st February 2012 from select sporting goods retailers, swim shops and tri specialists.
