For over 40 years, arena has been developing cutting-edge racing swimwear built on a foundation of in-depth research, technical know-how and an unyielding commitment to quality, achieving the best combination of performance, comfort and durability. Since 2000, the brand’s top-of-the-range POWERSKIN family of suits has constantly set the benchmark for high performance swimwear for all levels of competitions, including Open Water swimming. The continuous involvement of champions swimmers in the development process has produced breakthrough innovations and incremental improvements leading to swimming’s foremost podiums around the world. The Powerskin ST 2.0 marks the next-generation in one of arena’s longest-standing FINA- approved range of racing suits. Building on the original ST’s proven legacy, the 2.0 makes a leap in terms of technology, performance, comfort, and durability, while still retaining the ST’s trademark value-for- money appeal. Manufactured with 3 hi-tech knitted fabrics for improved functionality and resilience, the ST 2.0’s new design boosts core support and compression, and enhances comfort through ergonomic seam placement and reinforced shoulder strap construction, elevating overall performance to a new level when it matters most. The ST 2.0 is also available in sizes for young swimmers. Superior knitted fabrics have been augmented in the ST 2.0 with an extra durable lining to provide outstanding stretch, optimal compression and total freedom of movement. The result is a high- performance suit that minimizes surface drag for exceptional hydrodynamics, and offers unrestricted movement without compromising key muscle support. The new lining brings added technical functionality to the ST 2.0 range. Incorporated into the top front of both the full suit and the jammer, and extending down the back of the leg, the lining provides greater muscle compression for targeted areas, and improves core and leg support, allowing the swimmer to stay stable and strong in the water. The ST 2.0’s shoulder structure features a new design with extra reinforcement in the centre strap. Bolstered by the shell fabric and durable lining, the shoulder strap provides greater support in the shoulders and upper back, enhances the overall fit and feel of the suit, and adds an extra level of durability. In the ST 2.0, the seams have been moved to deliver greater ergonomic qualities, helping with body and leg lift and positioning, while also offering unrestricted biomechanical movement. In addition, flatlock construction of the seams contributes to the suit’s perfect fit, with the seams sitting snugly against the body to help keep optimum shape in the water.
