Speedo S114 LZR Racer Elite 2 press release




Speedo has unveiled updated versions of its hugely popular Fastskin LZR Racer Elite 2 racing suits, featuring comfort straps, a brand new closed-back suit for women, and a high-waisted jammer for men, helping to enhance THE most comprehensive choice of competitive swimwear and equipment in the world today.

Adding to the Fastskin Racing System, the brand new Fastskin LZR Racer Elite 2 options are designed to work together with caps and goggles, offering a perfect combination to suit every swimmer’s individual preferences and performance needs.

With 85 years of swimming expertise, Speedo understands what it takes to excel at an elite level, and that being comfortable is one of the most important factors when it comes to competing. That’s why Speedo has introduced new comfort straps on all female suits, allowing maximum shoulder rotation without any loss in suit compression.

The choice for women is further enhanced by the brand new Closed-back Kneeskin suit catering for those who prefer greater compression and coverage in competition.

Optimum coverage is also the inspiration behind the new men’s High Waisted Jammer, with greater coverage for improved hydrodynamics whilst racing, and, in turn, faster times.

All suits in the Fastskin LZR Elite 2 range are now available in a selection of attractive colourways, including Black/Surf (light blue), traditional Black and new for this season, vibrant Black/Blaze (Pink) and Navy/Japan Blue, giving swimmers even more choice and the opportunity to really stand out on the blocks.

Providing the same lightweight overall compression that made the Speedo Fastskin LZR Racer Elite suits so popular among swimmers like Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps, LZR Racer Elite 2 has increased water repellency, making it 40% more durable than its predecessor. With the introduction of the new silhouettes, colours and a superior fabric and finish, the best just got better.

Designed to help achieve the ultimate swimming form and maximum speed, the Fastskin Racing System delivers huge performance gains to help swimmers make the most of their natural ability – every product is fully approved by FINA (Federation International de Natation).

Sean Hastings, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Speedo International, said:

“Our mission at Speedo is to provide swimmers with the best choice of swimwear and equipment, utilising pioneering research and development. We want to help swimmers achieve their best performance, and these new additions to the Fastskin Racing System collection provide more choice than ever before.”
