Do you own a Powerskin Carbon-pro suit? If so, please read on ...
As of 7th May 2013, some models in the Powerskin Carbon-pro-range can no longer be used in FINA-sanctioned swimming events (e.g. Olympic Games, World Championships, and related qualifying events).
We recently tweaked our manufacturing process to fulfill an incredible market demand for the Carbon-pro, and unfortunately the process impacted the air permeability of the fabric, in a few of the suits. This was, of course, unintentional.
In reality, only a small part of the production exhibits this anomaly, and it doesn't in any way affect the safety or performance of the Carbon Pro suits concerned. Nonetheless, arena wants to make sure that not even one of the suits potentially affected is used at FINA sanctioned events.
We are sorry for any upset or inconvenience this may cause you.
If you do own a Carbon Pro suit and intend on using it at a FINA sanctioned event, please check our website here for more information.
Please feel free to ask us questions, we are here to help you. The press release you can find here.

The 1st Survival Run Switzerland ist over. Arount 1600 participants have done two laps of 8km and 20 different obstacles. The fastest survivers are Daniel Hubmann and Brigitta Mathy. Congratulation to all who have survived this tough course.
The New Balance Running City series is entering the next round. After the launch of the Limited Edition for the New York City Marathon, the Tokyo, London and Boston models are now coming onto the market.
Typical city landmarks are immortalized on the corresponding models. The shoe also scores big when it comes to technology. The third generation of the 890 is now lighter than ever. The shoe's seamless upper ensures optimum comfort while the outsole provides perfect rollover behavior.
890 Tokyo The design of the 890 Tokyo was inspired by the Oriental folding art of origami. The lacing and fine details such as the beloved figure of a crane on the heel and the printed insole are highlighted by vibrant contrasting colors.
890 London God save this shoe! The aristocratic tweed design is incorporated into the shoe's upper, sole and lacing. Loyalty to the British monarchy is given its due on the heel and sole in the form of golden lions.
890 Boston The special 890 Boston model redefines lightweight with its many glowing fluorescent details. The mounted horseman on the heel cap and the lanterns on the laces are stirring symbols of Boston's battle for liberty against the British army in 1775.
The models produced in Flimby are always inspired by English subjects. So also the 577 Country Fair Package. Applied to these country fairs, the shoe plays with inspiration as can throwing, "the high striker", horse riding or even sweets such as the popular striped candy canes. The New Balance 577 Country Fair Package is available in selected stores early march and is bundled with a pair of Burlington socks.
