Record-Breaking Swimwear: Fastskin Lzr Pure

The story behind Speedo’s new competitive swimwear range, the Fastskin LZR Pure. Find out more about the three-year journey it took to bring the perfect Fastskin range to life.

It’s nearly 20 years since we launched our innovative Fastskin suit that changed the game of competitive swimming forever. With the exciting launch of our Phoenix red colour, it’s a chance to look back at our journey to get here.

Since the launch of Fastskin for the 2000 Sydney Olympics the Speedo have continued to develop Fastskin products to help our Team Speedo athletes and competitive swimmers to achieve their ambitions in the pool. By the Beijing Olympics, 94% of gold medals were won wearing Speedo Fastskin.

Now, in 2019, we have launched our latest suit the Fastskin LZR Pure and have already seen some impressive results on the PB wall.

Team Speedo’s Kylie Masse achieved the 4th fastest swim in history for the 100m Backstroke at the 2019 Canadian Swimming Trials, whilst Paralympian Sophie Pascoe set new world records in her Fastskin LZR Pure Intent for the 50m Butterfly and 50m Freestyle.
