The Carbon Flex is the newest addition to Arena's best-selling Carbon Series. With six models of carbon technology on the market, Arena now offers swimmers diverse options in fit and flexibility while maintaining the unique benefits of the world's most innovative racing and compression technology. The Carbon Flex is the first product in the Arena family to use the patented V-Flex System. This system includes taped and bonded external rear seams to provide maximum range of motion and freedom of movement around the hips, glutes and shoulders. Anatomically placed anchor points and high-strength elastic tapes create tension lines along the back of the upper legs that provide a lifting effect, helping swimmers improve body position and alleviate drag and resistance from fatigued legs. While offering the above differences, the Flex, like all products in the POWERSKIN Carbon Series feature the following benefits: Carbon Cage: Arena?s Carbon Series features the world?s first technical racing suits with high-strength carbon fiber woven into a lightweight high-stretch nylon fabric. Intelligent Compression: The Carbon Cage technology locks down when and where a critical stress level is reached, maximizing compression on over-extended zones when and where needed, while retaining elasticity and freedom of movement. Power Return System: Strategic placement of bonded seams and internal elastic taping stores potential energy and releases this energy in dives, kicks, and turns to maximize efficiency, power, and speed. Designed to fit larger body types with more fabric strech in the hips, vs. the Carbon Pro kneeskin. Taping on back of the legs increases power and efficiency.
Utilizes the mark 2 Carbon fabric. One Arena logo printed on the chest of the Carbon Flex. Fina Approved.

Exchanges are not accepted on grab bag items. Hey, its a grab bag!
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive store credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.
If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver (meaning they’ll be notified of your return.)

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If your shipping was free, the amount it cost to ship your order originally will be deducted from your refund. (This is so we don’t lose a lot of money from folks being fickle.) If you wish to exchange an item, you are responsible for paying shipping both ways.
If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item – sometimes the mailman, angry weather events, or cases of bad karma means things get lost in shipping. C’est la vie.
