The draw: Ideal for the short- course speedster

Geared for trim short-course athletes looking for pure speed, the Carbon suit hits every mark. The fabric is nearly impervious to water, helping the suit dry completely in just minutes. Its pocket-less construction is ideal for wetsuit-illegal swims, but is less suited to long-course racing. Despite being suited to shorter races, the robust pad takes a ton of pressure off sensitive parts.
