Speedo is a household name in the swimming community around the world. Founded in 1914 by hosiery manufacturer Alexander McRae, the name Speedo was adopted in 1928 along with the slogan Speed on in your Speedos. Since it’s beginning Speedo has been outfitting swimmers of all ages and ability levels. From recreational swimmers to Olympians Speedo has been the suit of choice. Speedo has come a long way since the traditional Speedo made its way on to Australian beaches.
Though there are many players in the swimming market today few have shown the fierce dedication to the sport that Speedo has. This dedication to the sport and its athletes has led to many revolutionary new products. Such products include the Speedo Aquablade swimsuits, the Speedo Fastskin and Fastskin II, and the Speedo Faskskin Pro suits. These racing suits utilize patented fabric that helps to reduce drag in the water. Speedo’s biggest breakthrough came in the form of the Speedo LZR Racer. This highly technical racing suit was featured at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has been worn in numerous World Record breaking swims. The LZR Racer was just one of the suits that forced FINA to redefine the rules in 2009 and limit the amount of swimsuit coverage on the body and the materials of the suits. Speedo's response was to release the Speedo LZR Elite swimsuits in late 2009, just in time for the 2010 racing season. The Speedo LZR Racer Elite plus the next evolution the Speedo LZR Pro swimsuit both utilize the fabrics and technology of the LZR Racer. All while still being legal swimsuits in 2010. No matter the length of the race, competitive swimmers know getting there first involves hundreds, even thousands of pool miles. The new Speedo LZR Elite 2 Comfort Strap Kneeskin
