MEN'S Viper X2 Short Sleeve Swimskin
Meet the reimagined, better-than-ever Viper X2 Short Sleeve Swimskin, and wave goodbye to drag.
We weren’t satisfied with just creating the fastest, most popular swimskin on the planet, so we went back to the drawing board and upped our game. The result is the Viper X2, a swimskin that keeps everything you loved about the original—our patented ARMS UP™ technology, patented IXI taping, silicone leg grippers—and adds a new compression zone in the lower back that provides improved core support, promotes better posture and reduces drag by eliminating bubbling of the fabric in the small of your back.
The Viper X2 Short Sleeve is USAT and IRONMAN legal, and it fully covers your short sleeve tri suit on the swim to reduce friction and drag in the water. The suit is built with a premium Italian stretch-woven fabric and includes a hydrophobic Teflon coating, high-tech bonded seam construction with hidden-stitch reinforcement, as well as a low profile auto-locking YKK zipper.
ARMS UP™ SHORT-SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION
Our revolutionary patented ARMS UP™ technology eliminates restriction allowing you to swim faster and more efficiently.
Specialized gusset pattern through armpit
Enhances mobility and greatly reduced irritation throughout the swim.
Floating neck Suspension
Increases mobility and prevents chafing on the neck.
Bonded with a high-tech seam construction and novel hidden stitch reinforcement.
SILICONE LEG GRIPPER
Printed silicone leg grippers on the inside of the leg opening for a straight seam cut and no sausage leg.
Auto-locking YKK zipper
Premium YKK breakaway reversed #3 coil zip designprovides an easy removal exiting the swim.
Adjusted shoulder panel seams
Liberates your arms while providing support where you need it most.
NEW CORE COMPRESSION ZONE
An updated lower back panel provides enhanced core compression, better support and improved posture in the water. It also reduces the bubbling effect of the fabric in the small of your back to eliminate drag.
Our patented IXI Taping helps connect the movements of your lower body to your core and arms to increase the efficiency and power transfer of your stroke.
Teflon coating repels water and reduces drag and water absorption.
VIPER SWIMSKIN Size Chart
- Swimskins should fit snugly but comfortably without inhibiting your breathing or arm movement. Fit may feel different while swimming vs. on land, so make sure to try the suit in the water. They are meant to have a tight, compression fit, like a competition pool swimming suit.
- Note that swimskins are meant to be worn on top of a race top/bottom or race suit only for the swim portion of the race. They are very specific, high performance garments not meant to be worn alone like traditional swimwear and the suits can be see-through under certain light or when wet. Undergarments such as a tri kit or swimsuit are strongly advised.
- Your race kit will affect the fit slightly, so please be sure to try them on and swim in them with your race kit or another suit underneath.
