Key Benefits

Higher
Compression

Reducing drag but increasing the muscles efficiency.

LZR Racer CompreX uses one way stretch technology, stretching vertically, allowing swimmers freedom of movement during their stroke. It is resistant to horizontal stretch providing high compression and reducing drag but increasing the muscles efficiency.

Maximized Support Seam Construction

Improving the linkage of the muscular kinetic chain.

The support seams enhance the link between muscles of the upper and lower body. They connect major muscles of the thigh, back and shoulders.

The support seam intersects at the hip bone, allowing rotation, then runs across the lower back with an identifiable ‘X’ shape. The construction of the seams provides feedback to the swimmer, helping to maintain a better position in the water and a high-leg kick.

When we first got this suit in the mail, I helped my daughter try it on. It took at least 30 minutes. And it fit her like a glove. However, when she was going to wear it for the first time at a meet it ripped, but we were in a hurry. I got another one and knew that you can't be in a hurry to put the suit on. She has worn the second suit for two meets over multiple days. She loves it and thinks it feels more comfortable on the shoulders than the LZR Elite 2. The suit is true to size. I followed the recommended sizing measurements. Most of my daughters measurements fell within the high end of size 23 and low end of 24, so I went with the 24. Every time we put it on she needs my help and we have to go very slow and it takes about 20-30 minutes. There is truly an art you have to master to getting it on. It is painful for her, but once it is on it looks and feels great.

Our daughter has been swimming competitively for almost 10 years now and has worn Speedo religiously over ALL those years. We were upsold to the new LZR X for highschool sectionals two weeks ago and we even sized up based on the Speedo sizing chart based on direction and history of this suit fitting. We dry fitted the suit fine the night before the event,. tight but all went fine.

Swim event the next day and the suit tears between the hips and arm pit as the straps are getting pulled on. No backup suit in the bag to boot, thank goodness for a teammate with a spare.

Mind you we've purchased 4-5 tech suits per year at a minimum and she has NEVER torn one, so when we tried to return the suit, we were told that Speedo was being difficult about returning these suits to the point that the dealer was getting stuck with suits they would typically have expected Speedo to stand behind.
Bummed in a big way and I have no choice then to BUY her another tech suit for States this weekend.

Not a happy guy and disappointed in Speedo's stance on these suits

      this is an amazing suit. I recently wore this in my championship meet and I saw a lot of this suit there. I went up one size and it was still tight putting it on so I recommend sizing up. it was figure flattering and over all a great suit.

            Comments about Speedo LZR Racer X Kneeskin:

            This suit is definitely not for the weak of heart. It takes an average of a half hour or more to put on the first time. Once it is on it fits like a charm and has not worn out. Even after a full week of racing in it, it is still very tight. I had to go up a size from the LZR Elite 2. Open back is much easier to put on than the closed back, but personally I like the feel of the closed back better and it is more comfortable to wear for a longer period of time. Much more durable than the LZR Elite and if you're up for the challenge of putting it on, it's worth the extra money too.

                Comments about Speedo LZR Racer X Kneeskin:

                I bought this suit for my daughter before her championship meet. It took 35 minutes to get it on when she tried it. It was the right size. There were no visible wrinkles. However, on day 1 of her champs meet, when she put the suit on, after taking her time and carefully only using the iridescent seam strips to move it into place, the suit filled up with water during both of her races. After her races, there were visible puckers and stretched out areas on the outside of her thighs, the inside of her thighs, and around her hips. While the top of the suit stayed in tact, the bottom blew up like a parachute. The suit is supposed to stretch vertically, not horizontally, but this suit looks like a Kardashian wore it; and my daughter is super thin with no curves. We are really disappointed with the quality of this suit. It seems it's good for one try-on and then stretches out completely. It was an expensive mistake to make. She has a "dead" Lazer Elite from over a year ago that she has worn to a ton of meets, and even that suit, when put over top of her new suit, is not anywhere near as stretched out as this one is after two races, a mere 45 minutes of wear, 300 yards total.

                    We ordered the suit online (first mistake) using the sizing chart. After about an hour of trying to get the suit over her hips, my daughter ripped it. (She was being careful - this isn't her first tech suit). If you are ordering this without trying it on first, order a size bigger than the chart says.

                        I've worn many kneeskins before, but this has to be my favorite. It makes you feel like the suit is swimming for you. But beware it took me 25 minuets to get it on the very first time and you have to go up a size or even two. And be careful they do rip very easily don't be stupid and try to rush it.

                            I swim year around and have been wearing speedo kneeskins for four years. I have never had a problem before until I got this suit. The first time I got it, I went up in size and it ripped when putting it on. I returned it, got a new one and a bigger size and could not even get it up my thighs. The material does not stretch and straps do not go wide enough to fit my body through the suit. I am now returning it for the racer elite 2. I will never get this suit again.

                                    This Suit looks so amazing and cool, but that is just a cloak to disguise its imperfections. I wear Speedo all the time, I am a 24, but this suit just doesnt fit. I have a skinny/muscular body, and the suit wouldn't go over my butt. i tried 2 different sizes, but neither would go. I even have a bruise the suit gave me while i was trying to put it on!

                                      I am an experienced competitive swimmer who SWEARS by Speedo's products. This is the first time I have been disappointed with an Elite Tech Suit. I was pulling it up my legs(gently) and my finger went right through it.

                                      I bought two of these suits within a week. First one got a hole, second one ripped. Very disappointed in Speedo right now. My daughter has worn many Speedo suits in the past but this one sucks.

                                          Both of my daughters suits ripped, 1 after 1 swim, 1 after 2 swims. Very disapointed with this suit. We have always been a speedo fan.

                                              Very Small (size up at least 2 sizes) but fits great when you first put it on. Was worn at State by a number of girls this past weekend and FELL APART after 3-4 Races!! Bring a back-up suit!! Lost compression by second day, got a hole on third day. Same happened to other kids with this suit. IT WON'T LAST!! Too bad b/c it looks great and feels great in the beginning.

                                                I have worn all of speedos fastskins and I think this is there best one yet. But you definitely need to size up. I got a size 21 because I am used to sizing down, but I am returning it for a 23 because i couldn't even get it over my thighs. Size up!!!!!!!

                                                    I got this for my daughter for her upcoming TAGS meet, she wore it to one of her qualifying meets and dropped seconds! People from different teams always asked her where she got the suit and it was just such a confidence builder for her. Although this suit was expensive it was worth it. My daughter is so happy to show off her new suit to all of her friends at state and I must say i have never seen such a smile on her face when she wore it.
