We built the Viper Comp Swimskin to bring high performance at a more accessible price point. The Viper Comp compresses your body and streamlines your shape in the water, reducing form drag. It is faster than other swimskins, a trisuit or a tri top/bottom combo and comes off quickly in T1. It uses the same pattern and many of the same features of the Viper Pro and Elite.
The Viper Comp swimskin is USAT and WTC legal and contains the exact same design features of the Viper Elite and differs only in the surface finish and zipper. Like the Viper Pro and the Viper Elite, the Viper Comp swimskin has the same high performance bonded seam construction and hidden stitch reinforcement. We use the same folded seam at the leg as we do with the Viper Pro and Elite to prevent "sausage legs" caused by elastic bands with silicone grippers. The Viper Comp has a high quality YKK zipper slider with lanyard for easy on/off. The Viper Comp comes with cyan graphics.
Viper Comp Fit Tips:
Note that swimskins are meant to be worn on top of a race top/bottom or race suit only for the swim portion of the race. They are very specific, high performance garments not meant to be worn alone like traditional swimwear and the suits can be see-through under certain light.
Swimskins should fit snugly but comfortably without inhibitiing your breathing or arm movement. Fit may feel different while swimming vs. on land, so make sure to try the suit in the water.
Your race kit will affect the fit slightly, so please be sure to try them on and swim in them with your race kit or another suit underneath.
