A3 Performance was founded in 2004 as a proprietary brand of All-American Aquatics, a national team dealer. As demand grew for our high-quality, in-house product, A3 Performance developed into the most innovative brand of performance swimwear in the country. A3 Performance first brought innovation to the sport of competitive swimming with its first FINA approved technical racing suit, Stealth. In 2012, A3 Performance unveiled Stealth at pools across the country including NCAAs and Olympic Trials. Not only was Stealth A3's first technical racing suit, it was also the sport's first-ever closed back female racing suit (post full-body suit era). The compression and hydrodynamics of this suit quickly made it a fan favorite, and one of the most popular suit styles on the pool deck.
After great success with Stealth, A3 Performance developed a new level of elite compression in female technical racing with the Powerback. A3 Performance's LEGEND technical racing suit, released in 2015, features the first-ever Powerback style, defined by a small opening across the lower back. The Powerback is designed for ultimate compression through the core and lats. This innovative design also provides great flexibility and maximum range of motion in the water. In January 2017, LEGEND was tested against the latest technology of all of the top swimwear brands and resulted as the fastest technical racing suit in the water. The Powerback is fast!
After four years of research and development, A3 Performance unleashed its latest and greatest innovation in 2017, the BODIMAX Sleeves – the first-ever aquatic and intelligent compression wear. The BODIMAX Sleeves are compression arm sleeves built for in-water training and designed to help athletes train at a higher level for a longer period of time. During training, the BODIMAX Sleeves' intelligent BODIMAX Technology prolongs the onset of lactic acid and helps the body become more efficient in clearing lactic acid and recovering. Although originally intended for swimming and aquatic sports, BODIMAX Sleeves have made an impact on athletes outside of the pool including baseball players, triathletes, football players, rowers, and more! The BODIMAX Sleeves have changed the way athletes train.
In late 2018, A3 Performance added calf sleeves to the BODIMAX line. BODIMAX Calf Sleeves are a game changer for swimmers, triathletes, runners, soccer players, cyclists, and more!
For the first time ever, A3 Performance unites recovery and performance. The A3 Performance VICI Technical Racing Suits are the first technical racing suits built with BODIMAX Technology, the same impressive technology in our BODIMAX Sleeves. With VICI, athletes have the ability to improve their muscle recovery and perform at a high level in competition. BODIMAX Technology is one of the many impressive features of VICI. Every detail in the VICI Technical Racing Suits is intentional, significant, and purposeful, designed to help athletes perform at their highest level. Race in VICI and you'll quickly understand why this is the world's most technologically advanced racing suit.
A3 Performance’s newest technology innovates male swimwear unlike anything ever before! FitLock Technology is the first-ever FINA approved swimsuit drawstring lock. Now you can tighten your suit with one tug and prevent it from coming loose. Featured on VICI, A3 Performance's elite technical racing jammer, and NOVA, our newest FINA and USA Swimming-approved racing jammer, FitLock is a proprietary technology designed and developed by A3 Performance. It is a small lock on the drawstring that holds it in place to secure your fit so you can focus on swimming fast.
