Review for Blue Seventy Women’s PZ4TX Swimskin – 2019
When it came time to develop the next generation of our legendary swim skin family it began in 2011, mere months after we launched the PZ3TX to compile with the new textile standards of WTC. Prototype after prototype produced marginal results. We faced a problem – everything we came up with wasn’t faster then our industry leading PZ3TX. It wasn’t until the development phase of a yet to be released new competition pool race suit that we tested some exciting new fabrics. We’re pleased to introduce a new swim skin worthy of the pointzero3 name. The PZ4TX features advanced ultrasonic welding and extensively tested fabrics offering the optimal blend of fit, compression and performance. No other brand has a better understanding of what is needed in a swim skin to produce faster times and better results. The PZ4TX features four different fabrics designed for optimal compression, fit and speed. The front fabric is lightweight and hydrophobic. Through extensive testing we found this fabric produces huge gains in time particularly with beginner swimmers. The sides are made up of an innovative fabric with vertical lines that improves hydrodynamics and increaseses forward motion. This fabric has also proven to compliment the front and back compression sections making the PZ4TX very easy to fit. White heat reflective fabric in the upper back, highly compressive to reduce drag, while allowing optimal thermoregulation for warmer swims. The lower back uses ultra-thin fabric further reducing the weight while maintaining superior heat retention and elasticity.COMPRESSION Provides extraordinary elasticity, optimal muscular compression, an excellent fit, great coverage and exceptionally breathable.LOW DRAG Ultra sonic bonded seams for seamless surface flow.LOCKING ZIPPER Advanced YKK auto locking zipper (no string or lanyard needed). This unique zipper system reduces drag, is faster to remove and due to it’s lightweight and flexibility, more comfortable.DURABILITY Retains shape and fit longer.FEMME FIT Designed by women for women. Tried and tested femme fit.
