Avlare’s® extreme water repellency is extraordinarily combined with high stretch, providing a low weight, highly breathable fabric unrivalled in water sports. The new Olympic suit is thinner, lighter and more comfortable than anything currently worn by the sailors. It actually prevents them from getting wet, thereby significantly reducing their water weight and keeping them shielded from the elements.
