Huntington Beach, CA – December 21, 2009 – Entering into a new year of national and international swim competition, TYR Sport, Inc. introduces the newest designs in the Tracer High-Performance line of technical swimsuits-the Tracer B-Series™ and C-Series™. Approved by the international governing body of aquatic sports, FINA, the two additions will be available for retail early in 2010.
“We were happy work very closely with FINA to ensure that the Tracer High-Performance line was compliant within their guidelines while still allowing us to introduce some truly innovative technology,” said Team and Promotions Director Matt Zimmer.
The Tracer High-Performance line, including the Tracer Light™ already on the market, is the company’s premier line of competitive suits for race day. Featuring lightweight, hydrophobic, and quick-drying fabric, the new B-Series™ and C-Series™ present industry-leading designs specific to contours of the body.
“The different suits offered give athletes customized technologies based on their needs,” Zimmer shared. “These technologies are the direct result of tests showing that the right suit is dependent upon the athlete. It is not the suit that makes the swimmer-the swimmer has the option to pick what is right for them.”
The B-Series™ suit provides a fluid, drag reducing fit with flat-bonded seams that require no sewing or threads. Following the natural contours of the human body, the B Series™ design leads the industry with an exclusive muscle-mapping pattern. Minimized seams, ultra-light bonding, and no stitching allows for an incredibly light yet functionally fitting technology.
The C-Series™ suit featured technology includes power-mesh panels that lock the core in with up to a 75% increase in zoned compression vs. a typical Lycra suit. Panels decrease body circumference by up to 10%- increasing the body’s ability to manage position, orientation, and efficient movement of the muscles. Increased efficiency means improved performance. Among the suit’s many features, Range of Motion (ROM) straps make their debut in the Tracer series, allowing fluidity and explosiveness in the stroke cycle without splitting.
Both additions to the Tracer line are offered in a Racer and Jammer for men, and in an Aeroback and Aeroback Shortjohn for females. For more information on the entire TYR line of swimwear and accessories.
