TEAM SUITS

If you would like to order a team suit, here is all the info you need!

This year’s suits feature a black and white photo of Mount Sopris taken by photographer Matt Payne (www.mattpaynephotography.com ). The company that makes the suits is Agonswim, who specialize in custom fabrics and designs. We are also excited to try this company because of the variety of fabrics (fabrics suitable for training, racing, and tech suits) and models they offer (briefs, jammers, and three female cuts).

Fabric Options:

Duramax fabric:  Our boys briefs are made with Duramax fabric, which lasts forever (very slow to breakdown in chorine) and is a great fabric to both train and race in for in-season races.  It is a heavy fabric, but boys briefs are so small that a light, fast fabric is not necessary to be fast.  Many of our boys use these briefs.  We don’t offer this fabric in girls suits because it is too heavy and does not stretch.

Maxresist fabric, which is available in both boys jammers and the girls suits on the web site, is a great all around fabric that is stretchy but lasts relatively long (fairly slow to breakdown in chlorine) if you are looking for a good all around/everything suit for younger athletes to both train and race in or if you are looking for the least expensive racing suit for your younger athlete (and then they train in some other suit to make this team suit last longer) this is a great choice.  This is the most common fabric used on our team.

Streamline fabric:  This is a faster racing fabric (it has little grooves in the fabric that run lengthwise down the suit) that many Team Sopris athletes order in a size or two below their training suit and use as their primary in-season racing suit.  This is not a tech-suit, but is a good, sleek and fast fabric.  It is a bit more expensive than Maxresist and it won’t hold up to chlorine as long Maxresist so people tend not to train in it.

Paper fabric.  This is a tech suit.  It is made with the same fabric that Speedo used for their 2016 top of the line tech suits.  It is extremely light and is coated with tephlon to be hydro-phobic.  If you are new to the tech suit world, they are the suits that athletes use for those one or two big qualifying meets (states, sectionals, nationals) of the year.  The effectiveness of the material really only holds up for a couple meets, and thus a new tech suit is usually required every year.  This is where swimming gets expensive.  Top of the line tech suits are about $350.  One of the reasons we chose to work with Agon swim is because they offer a tech suit, which can be printed with in our team design, at less than half the price.   In my personal use of this tech suit I found the suit to be fast and was really happy with it.  It was hydrophobic for all of the first meet I used it in and about half the second meet (many athletes then use their last year’s tech suit for competing in typical in-season meets).  One of the ways Agon keeps the cost down on these suits is that they don’t line the seams of their tech suits like top of the line tech suits, which arguably would make them slightly slower than those top of the line ones but my guess is that this is imperceptible for all swimming up to the absolute elite level.  Our family (we have a 12 year old and 9 year old swimmer) plans to order our girls one of these suits when they have made the commitment to full time swimming and first qualify for their first big championship meet.  Otherwise, I am not a fan of putting younger swimmers in these suits for a multitude of reasons (hard to put on, expensive, and distracting from their organic journey as a young swimmer). 

Feel free to email Kayo at kogilby@crms.org with any questions about suits, styles, fabrics, etc.

Team mesh bags and towels are also available to order on the site. The large mesh bag is similar in size to a typical speedo mesh bag and will fit a board, fins, pull bouy, snorkle, etc. The xl bag is what college swimmers often use and will accomodate extra stuff like parachutes, etc. You can also choose to customize these items with the swimmers name.
