With the words “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Julius Caesar proclaimed a swift, decisive victory over his opponents in 47 BC. In 2018, his words still ring true in the latest innovation by A3 Performance. Introducing VICI (VEE – CHEE), the world's most technologically-advanced, FINA approved racing suit.
Since its inception, A3 Performance has been on the cutting edge of innovation, and VICI is no exception. For the first time ever, technical racing meets recovery – VICI’s elite racing fabric is built with BODIMAX Technology, an advanced textile technology that supports muscle recovery and impacts performance.
Elite fabric deserves a fast surface, and A3 delivers! Fastwater Surface Treatment coats the BODIMAX fabric, inducing water flow and reducing resistance for a hydrodynamic feel every time you dive into the water.
When it comes to racing, what’s on the inside is equally as important as what’s on the outside. VICI’s internal Core Compression System (CCS) works with the Fastwater surface to reduce drag on the body’s contact points, while compressing the Chest, Core, and Hips/Legs for ideal body position and performance at top speed. Feel the freedom to move naturally and quickly through the water, without restriction.
Prepare to conquer with the world's most technologically-advanced racing suit.
Not only is VICI the world's most technologically-advanced racing suit, but VICI also goes farther faster than any other racing suit in the water!
Global Sports Technology, Inc., directed by Dr. Genadijus Sokolovas, is considered to be the foremost authority on sports physiology and swim technology testing worldwide. Under the direction of Dr. G, GST performed a lab testing the latest racing technology from every major performance brand in the sport of swimming. This testing included A3 Performance NOVA, our entry-level racing suit to be released in 2018, A3 Performance LEGEND, and A3 Performance's 2018 racing technology, VICI.
At the time the test results were first released, VICI was still under wraps, and our LEGEND tech suit prevailed as the fastest, CURRENT technical racing suit in the water.
With the unveiling of VICI, we are proud to announce that VICI tested significantly faster than LEGEND and its competitors. The VICI Technical Racing Suit is proven to go farther faster than any other racing suit in the water!
VICI is the first-ever technical racing suit built with intelligent fabric. VICI's elite, technical fabric is woven with BODIMAX Technology, a textile technology proven to support muscle recovery by increasing oxygen flow and decreasing lactic acid buildup in the muscles.
When VICI's fabric comes in contact with a swimmer's body, BODIMAX's healing properties are activated and the recovery process begins. The BODIMAX Technologyin VICI's fabric improves athlete circulation which further prolongs the onset of lactic acid buildup and facilitates a speedier recovery for athletes.
Because VICI is so impactful, we encourage swimmers to warm up in their VICI racing suit before competition. Swimming in VICI prior to competition allows for a better, more productive warm up because VICI's BODIMAX Technology gets swimmers' blood flowing better and their heart rates up higher than they would swimming in a basic polyester training swimsuit. Plus, with a slick inside lining and the comfortable Pro Flex Straps, swimmers will feel strong and confident wearing VICI all swim meet long!
