Speedo’s new and improved world-class racing suit

Speedo South Africa has launched a new and improved the LZR Racer Elite 2 racing suit within the globally acclaimed Fastskin Racing System.

The LZR 2 has been re-engineered with increased durability and enhanced water repellancy.

With intense full body compression, sophisticated low-drag fabrics and world-leading technologies, the LZR 2 helps maximise performance and racing efficiency. The new LZR Pulse+ Fabric technology’s improved repellency results in 40% more durability.

Full-body compression fabrics reduce muscle oscillation, contouring the body into a hydrodynamic shape. Fully bonded welded seams help reduce drag by a further 6% due to its smooth surface.

The Women’s Openback Kneeskin maximises freedom of movement while the lightweight fabrics and silicone leg grippers ensure a snug fit for a confident performance.

LZR 2 has been fully approved by FINA and comprises a re-engineered suit, available in three striking contrasting panel colours: black/blue, and black/purple.

Available in Women’s Openback Kneeskin and Men’s Jammer styles, the Fastkin Racing System comprises suit, cap and goggles - all sold separately.

It’s advisable when using a Fastskin cap to wear the goggle strap under the cap (to further reduce drag). The Fastskin includes a hair management system which is recommended for long hair.

The LZR 2 will be available at the Speedo Concept Store in Canal Walk, Cape Town, and at selected Speedo stockists from mid-November 2013.
