The fastest surface in the water is no longer a smooth surface. Tech suit technology has explored different ridges and textures on the outer fabric of tech suits, but never before like PHENOM, by A3 Performance.
PHENOM’s entire outer surface has vertical fabric channels. These channels better control water movement across the body, ultimately lifting the body and creating efficiencies in every stroke, no matter the stroke. Fluid Dynamics testing has revealed that ridges of a defined height, depth, and distance in the fabric’s surface, like those found in PHENOM, prove to support greater distance per stroke, allowing the athlete to move through the water faster with equal effort, when compared to traditional tech suits.
Another significant benefit for the vertical fabric channels is that they transfer energy and force from all forward AND lateral movement to direct, forward propulsion.
