Carbon Flex: Newest Member of the Carbon Family

ORLANDO, Florida, February 13. THE Carbon Flex is the first product in the Arena family to use the patented V-Flex System. It is available in blue/black and red/black and will be commercially available in 2 styles at authorized Arena dealers and online this March.

The V-Flex System includes taped and bonded external rear (vs. sides) seams to provide maximum range of motion and freedom of movement around the hips, glutes, and shoulders. Anatomically placed anchor points and high-strength elastic tapes create Tension Lines along the back of the upper legs providing a lifting effect.

The Carbon Flex suit still includes all of the POWERSKIN Carbon Series features such as the Carbon Cage (high-strength carbon fiber woven into a lightweight high-stretch nylon fabric), Intelligent Compression (technology that locks down when and where a critical stress level is reached, maximizing compression while retaining elasticity), and a Power Return System (elastic tape that stores potential energy and releases it in dives, kicks, and turns to maximize efficiency, power, and speed).
