All stress points along the suit are reinforced with micro-stitch tacking to ensure suit integrity even under extreme strains.
Tracer Power Mesh
The Power Mesh liner is made from .4mm Poly micro-mesh, increasing the specific strength of the suit by a dramatic factor without escalating the weight. A hydrophobic finisher is applied to the mesh liner to act as an ultimate barrier against water.
Tracer Power Compression Panels
Incorporating power mesh, these panels will lock the core in with up to a 75% increase in zoned compression vs. a typical Lycra® suit. Decrease body circumference by up to 10%.
With industry exclusive muscle-mapping seams, the Tracer B-Series’ five-piece pattern design fits along the contours of the body to provide superior fit and reduce drag.
Tracer Four-Way Lock Seams
Contour the body and provide the strongest control available. TYR’s industry leading 18 stitch-per-inch seams are incredibly durable, low-profile, and offer superior range of motion (ROM).
The Tracer Light shell and lining features a lightweight, hydrophobic and quick-drying fabrication. Woven with a powerful micro-filament, it has enhanced stretch properties and memory retention to promote longevity and form-fit.
Tracer Compression Panels
Used in conjunction with the Four-Way Lock Seams, and intricately designed around the human musculature, these muscle-mapped panels will lock the core in with up to a 25% increase in zoned compression vs. a typical Lycra® suit. Panels decrease body circumference by up to 5%. Compression generated by the suit decreases muscle undulation and helps improve blood flow and re-oxygenation of the muscle core.
Smooth, flat-bonded seams outline the suit to create a stitchless design that provides a fluid, drag-reducing fit. The inside of the seam are bonded then encased with HB (high-bond) micro-taping to provide ultimate hold that won’t burst. The HB tape provides a consistently smooth stretch that leaves leg, arm, and neck openings a seamless transition from skin to fabric.

Like the suit. Was able to drop a few seconds off my times since I purchased this suit back in May. I had the same problem with the strings ripping within a couple meets.

My son wore this twice and the waistband ripped by the string in front. Also the water repellancy stopped working efficiently after 2 times of wearing it.

You really can't get much better than this suit for the money. I prefer it over the fastskin i had before it. The price is also a great piece. Only problem is, the openings on the inside of the suit where the strings come out are very fragile. Pulling a string the wrong way even slightly rips these holes and they continue to rip even onto the top and outside of the waistband.
