The new suit features the very latest in modern textile fabric technology, making as much up to
the minute technology as possible available to the swimmer.
CEO Steve Nicholls commented: "The body suit has been banished, but a new generation of
suits is now ready to take their place. The neroTX has been extensively tested by scientists and
swimmers. Whilst staying within FINAs latest guidelines, we've produced a super light weight,
compressive, hydrophobic material that repels water effectively and drastically decreases drag.
"We've applied the same passion for design and innovation to the neroTX that turned the record
breaking blueseventy nero into the top selling race suit in the world."
The neroTX is made from a unique highly compressive, ultra low drag, water smart fabric.
blueseventy's exclusive fabric is produced using a warp multifilament treated nylon, with an
extremely thin yarn count. The entire neroTX range is ultrasonically welded, further eliminating
the drag that's created from traditionally sewn suits.
Nicolls added: "We are committed to bringing innovation into swimming and have also
developed a carbon fibre goggle that is lighter and faster than any other goggle we have tested.
We're constantly looking at technology from other sports that we can apply to the water to help
swimmers go faster."
The brand new Nero range will be available now. Swimmers with a 2009 nero swimskin are
eligible for 50% off the price of a new suit and should visit www.blueseventy.com for more
