Powerskin 2012 - Chapter 1 At the very beginning...

2000 was an important year in the history of competitive swimming, as full-body swimsuits made their first appearance. This marked the beginning of a dramatic decade for the sport, and presented new possibilities in swimsuit design and construction.

Arena responded to these changes with the launch of the first POWERSKIN offering in what has since become a lasting swimsuit "dynasty".

The first generation POWERSKIN was 30% lighter, absorbed 15% less water than other polyamide-elastane competition suits, and had a water friction coefficient of almost zero.
