PARIS, Feb 6 — Adidas swim has revealed its most advanced adizero line yet, launching the adizero XVIII collection with a combination of three technologies to boost performance. 

The new adizero XVIII has been developed with the help of expert feedback from athletes including Ben Proud (50m Butterfly World Champion) and Kyle Chalmers (100m Freestyle Olympic Champion) to create a high performance new suit with an improved fit and new technology.

In an industry first, adidas has included X-TRA FIT technology across the collection, which ensures optimum fit and ease of movement through the water, while the addition of X-TRA FLOW technology also enables a smooth glide through the pool thanks to its intelligent material and a lightweight construction that allows water to run smoothly over the body. X-TRA ENERGY technology uses the suit’s fabric and compression fit to optimize energy, helping propel swimmers for a faster time.

By combining these technologies adidas has made adizero XVIII the fastest adizero yet, with Michael Andrew, adidas athlete and 2016 world champion in the 100 meter individual medley, commenting that “Every detail included in the adizero XVIII, whether it’s the improved fit or lightweight fibre yarn, makes it the best possible suit for competition.”

The adizero XVIII collection is available in black and pink, with various sizing options to ensure the best fit for each individual swimmer. The collection includes separate silhouettes; open back, closed back and a breaststroke specific version for both men and women.

The SS18 adidas adizero XVIII swim range will be available online at adidas.com/swimming.  — AFP-Relaxnews
