Optimised for speed, a combination of the latest innovations in materials, cut and construction provide the ultimate performance. The improved VORTEX Stroke Panel 2.0 technology increased the power delivery of every swim stroke during your swim. The new forearm panels activate and expand during then pull phase of the stroke, allowing a better hold on the water. Drag is increased by 30% compared to the 2010 model, which creates more energy transfer to the forward propulsion. The panels then de-activate in the recovery phase of the stroke allowing for a regular arm recovery.
An increase in the thickness of the upper rear leg panellingprovides 'position zero' buoyancy . This gives you Speedo's fastest body position yet and an improved natuaral buoynacy enhancement of 15% compared to the 2011 model.
Ribbing on the lower legmeans and increase in the propulsive surface area, providing a greater traction in the water and improving the acceleration when needed to gain speed and distance.
The newly designed shoulder panel is better positioned to stay in place , whilst moving with the contours of the shoulder to increase shoulder articulation and further release stroke power.
Fully coated in Yamamoto SCS, which dramatically reduces water friction and featuring Yamamoto Aerodome panels to provide maximum buoyancy in key areas to further reduce friction.
Quick Release Zipper - Instead of pulling the zip down after swim give it a good pull upwards. The zip extends on one side at the top then the whole back just opens up. To re-connect run the zipper to the bottom and slot back in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous This model is prohibited to use in ITU race
Official of ASTC Triathlon Asia Championship announces that "the shape of this model is against ITU regulations thus prohibit to use in the race, although Speedo argue that it is in accordance with the regulations."
I bought one but denied to use it in the race.
