What do Allison Schmitt, Cesar Cielo and Bruno Fratus have in common?

Adidas has made key suit improvements to ensure optimal performance in the water while also helping athletes perform better. Adidas set high expectations for the newest technical suit when they sat down with top technical engineers, designers and world class swimmers to redevelop their competition suits over a year ago. The outcome is one of the most advanced technical suits for competitive racing.

Deborah Yeomans, Sr. Development Engineer for adidas Swim, and her team considered a great deal when developing these suits. The 2014 suits are streamlined with body mapped flex zones which ensure optimal compression, stability, body positioning and comfort. The high performance, fully bonded, ultrasonic low profile silver seams ensure great strength and comfort, reduce drag, and make it easy to be seen on the blocks. The fabric is specifically engineered to be ultra-light and the hydrophobic finish repels water to cut drag and keep you riding high in the water. Another upgrade to the previous adizero gld2.0 suit is now both the women’s and men’s suits are fully lined for added core compression and modesty.

adidas “adizero gld2.0” technical suitAdidas adizero technical suits are available nationwide for both men and women, size 22 to 34. They range in price from $276 to $386. Adidas “adizero gld20” is in line with the latest FINA regulations. For more information about the suits, please visit www.adidasswim.com or contact an authorized dealer (http://www.adidasswim.com/where-to-buy/).

Yeomans comes to adidas with over 15 years of experience with technical suit construction and is best known for her revolutionary bodysuit that changed the world of swimming at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
