Technical suits can be considered at the near FLAG level and up.  For technical suits, always try a TYR brand first.  If TYR is not fitting well, see your coach for a recommendation.

 

Level 1 technical suit is a TYR Fusion 2

Level 2 technical suit is a TYR Thresher

Level 3 technical suit is a TYR Avictor

Level 4 technical suit is a TYR Venzo

Each suit level brings an increased expense with less resistance and greater compression.  Start at Level 1 and work your way up.  Technical suits have a short shelf-life.  Fit them tight, use them sparingly, and follow fabric care instructions.

 

USA Swimming’s ban on technical suits for athletes 12 & under begins September 1, 2020.
