PHOENIX – SwimmingWorld.TV brings you another episode of Tech Talk devoted to educating consumers on cutting-edge products in aquatics.

In this episode, Tiffany Elias is joined by Steve Furniss, the Team Aquisition Director for TYR and 1972 Olympic bronze medalist. Steve is here to share the technology behind TYR’s Avictor tech suit that launched in early 2015.

Born out of a collaboration between the industry’s top experts and the world’s most elite swimmers, the Avictor showcases an unprecedented combination of advanced features. The FINA-approved suit maximizes performance and gives athletes the ultimate advantage over their competition. The Avictor is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A of imported goods, which adds to the long list of features that sets it apart from its competitors.

Cutting-edge Hydrosphere Technology optimizes body position by causing water to surround the fabric of the suit, creating a visible hydrospheric effect. As a result, drag is reduced and speed and efficiency are boosted.

Designed with proprietary Speed Dry Fabrication, the Avictor minimizes dry time and rapidly repels water. This ensures athletes experience a dry, lightweight and comfortable fit for every race.

State-of-the-art Super Flex Bonding stretches and recovers with the body allowing free range of motion and compression at the same time. The fully bonded seams conform to the swimmer’s body and provide a durable, 360 degree stretch. The result is a precisely fitted, ultra-compressive suit that maximizes core stabilization while allowing 100% natural movement and flexibility.

“One of our core values at TYR is American ingenuity, and that undoubtedly shines through in the Avictor,” said Matt DiLorenzo, chief executive officer of TYR. “We are confident that our product is going to launch a new standard of tech suit performance.”

“I’ve been excited about the Avictor since the first time I tested the suit. Because of the Avictor, 2015 will be my most compressed, streamlined and fastest year yet. The Avictor’s hi-tech, low-friction fabric and the new shapely cut allows for easy movement where you want it, and compression where you need it,” said 4x Olympic Gold Medalist Matt Grevers.

The Avictor suit is available in full and half sizes.
