Aqua Sphere is pleased with recent comments from professional UK triathlete and experienced coach Richard Allen about its new Aqua Sphere Phantom wetsuit.
“I have just returned from my training camp in Greece with 20 athletes. The awesome Phantom is a sensational suit and everyone loves it!” said Allen.
“I extensively tested the Phantom and it is just insane! So different to any suit I have ever used and so much more advanced. The strap on the back I thought at first would be silly but it is exceptional and supports the core so well helping performance.
“The shoulders are also so flexible and far more advanced than previous suits. Super, super fast!!! Can’t wait to use it at UK 70.3!”
Originally unveiled in September 2010, the Aqua Sphere Phantom has been available for sale since February 2011. In its initial marketing outreach, Aqua Sphere posed a simple question with its new Phantom wetsuit: what’s the point of a high-tech wetsuit if it doesn’t live up to its claims?
“There’s a lot of complex sounding wetsuit technology on the market that we feel simply doesn’t live up to its claims,” said Aqua Sphere’s Martin Newton. “That’s why we consulted stroke experts and, through trial and error, believe we have come up with game changing technologies that will help swimmers perform better.”
According to Aqua Sphere, the Phantom wetsuit is the result of in-depth research on stroke mechanics, human kinetics, hydrodynamics and general functionality.
The wetsuit includes a number of innovations, including: the core power system (CPS), an integrated wrap-around Velcro brace that stabilizes the core muscles; Bio-Stretch Zones that enhance performance by increasing flexibility and decreasing buoyancy at specific points along the sleeve; and Auto-Positioning Sleeves, which ensure that a swimmer’s arm is in the optimal position – perpendicular to the water – throughout the catch and pull phase of their stroke.
