This past weekend at the Arena Pro Swim Series in Austin, TX, TYR Sport debuted the industry’s most talked about product, the TYR Avictor.

With a revolutionary, bold print and unprecedented combination of advanced features, the Avictor’s presence, both on deck and in the pool, turned serious heads.

Born out of a collaboration between the industry’s top experts and the world’s most elite swimmers, the Avictor showcases state-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art advancement at every level. With cutting-­‐edge hydrosphere technology, proprietary speed dry fabrication and super flex bonding, the FINA-­‐approved suit maximizes performance, while giving athletes the ultimate advantage over their competition.

In what promises to be a thrilling glimpse of things to come, 4X Olympic Gold Medalist Matt Grevers brought home an impressive win in the men’s 100m backstroke, earning the Avictor its first championship title. Grevers also placed 2nd in the 200m back, while World Championship Silver Medalist Michael McBroom placed 3rd in the men’s 400m free. Rounding out the weekend in her Avictor, World Championship Gold Medalist Megan Romano swam her way to both a 2nd and 3rd place finish in the women’s 200m and 100m free.

The TYR Avictor will be available for purchase at select dealers and TYR.com February 2015.

My go-to suit for championships meets this past year or so has always been the carbon flex and I’ve loved it. But for my upcoming conference meet I was considering trying kut the Avictor. Has anyone tried the Avictor that can give an unbiased opinion?

If you like compression stay with the flex.

That is one ugly suit. We’ll see how many swimmers not sponsored by TYR actually wear it.
