Speedo, the world’s leading swim brand, reignites its follower slove for swimming through its Speedo Fit campaign. The campaign has been challenging swimmers to choose Speedo as their partner in getting fit in the pool.Speedo has collaborated with the world’s leading athletes, coaches, sports scientist and physiotherapists to design swimwear that enables its users to achieve the perfect body position when swimming. What is new with the Swim Fitness suits is its use of technology and design from the elite racing suit, the Fastskin LZR Racer X. It’s also composed of Power Mesh Panels to support core areas and provides core muscle support.
The Competitive collection for training features creative elements blending together to create surprising designs with graphics inspired by the LZR Racer X, double cross backs, and allover print panel with split strap backs in the female range. In terms of application, the details are dictated by form, function, and performance, while color and graphics overlay imagery using transparent effects and high energy bright and fluorescents to maximize color impact.
Both collections are made up of Endurance+ fabric. This uses a blend of PBT and polyester fibers, which help provide high chlorine resistance. The material caters to a longer lasting fit even through wear and use, which resists snagging and fading longer than other fabrics. Above all, it provides UVA and UVB protection from the sun, while featuring multidirectional stretch fabric for added comfort. On the other hand, the Endurance 10 also possesses these same characteristics but with a new Creora High cloelastane that resists chlorine higher than standard elastane.
The Fastskin® suits aim to offer a range of racing suits that not only works with your body shape but also meets your personal swimwear preferences. The LZR Racer X is Speedo’s latest innovation, which increases targeted compression and streamlines the body while support seams hold you higher in the water making you faster. The LZR Racer Elite 2 features all-over suit compression creating a streamlined shape in the water.
