- Product Details
Adidas worked with biomechanics, physiologists, fabric and pattern experts, plus a global pool of elite athletes to create the game-changing adizero XVI, enabling swimmers to achieve their maximum speed. The ground-breaking technology features three advancements; energy optimisation (X-TRA ENERGY), intelligent materials (X-TRA FLOW) and a stroke-specific biometric fit (X-TRA FIT).
X-TRA ENERGY: The adizero XVI works to optimise the swimmer's energy, focusing it on propelling them through the water faster. The suit's fabric, innovative bands and compressive fit work together to support the swimmer's Kinetic Chain; the body's series of interlocking joints, where one movement facilitates the next. The pioneering tape material offers 100% recovery, ensuring the swimmer's expended energy is returned to optimise subsequent movements, for example pushing off the starting block.
X-TRA FLOW: Intelligent material and lightweight construction guarantee enhanced body position in the water. Strategically placed texturing of the fabric, the result of extensive wind tunnel testing, pushes water more smoothly over the swimmer's body in the right direction so it doesn't create as much turbulence.
X-TRA FIT: In an industry first, the adizero XVI offers bespoke design for the unique movements of different swimming strokes. Stroke-specific moderations ensure a precision fit, facilitating athletes' transition through the water. For example, to cater for the unique kick of the breaststroke, adidas bands shaped to support the "insweep" phase, ensure free, non-restricted and supportive movement.
