Men’s ARK Korp™
KORP™ is our most durable and versatile suit yet. We designed it to cover the whole spectra of swim run races, from shorter lakeside sprints to longer full-day adventures through archipelagos and open water. A tenacious training suit for the experienced athlete—or a one-suit quiver for the shooting star. KORP™ doesn’t do the crawling for you, but it damn near does everything else.
Premium Yamamoto #39 LIMESTONE Neoprene
Higher density, durability and insulating properties than any other option on the market. Holds up over time, without brittle cracks that risk letting water in.
Extra Durable Construction
Legs and sleeves withstand a harder beating than most suits, due to double lining and less sensitive coating. An absolute beast for new swim runners still learning the ropes, or for the high frequency abuse of a training suit.
Game-changing, stretchy bottoms, providing your muscles with maximum freedom of
movement when scrambling along rocky shorelines or blazing through the woods.
UltraFlex Inner Liner
Prevents chafing and provides pleasant freedom of movement instead of constricting your thigh muscles when fighting lactic acid on the last sprint to the finish line.
Master Buoyancy Belt (3 mm)
Provides your core with some extra flotation, necessary to retain speed and energy when swimming with trail running shoes.
Anti-leak Neck Construction
A second skin that completely seals out any cold water trying to seep through the material and down your neck.
Back Pocket with Zipper Closure
A smart pouch to store compression bandage, nutrition or other race essentials, safely secured and easily accessible.
Separate Arm Sleeves Included
A brilliant layering option for extra warmth in cold conditions—and extra ventilation for longer running sections.
Say farewell to the days when durable equalled heavy. This workhorse weighs in at only 550 g
The optimal all-around model
The name Korp is inspired by the mythic crow bird. With its black color shifting into blueish, it’s a true beauty. The Korp is intelligent and extremely versatile which indicates the properties of the suit in a brilliant way.
Low weight is key in swimrun and our main topic when it comes to product development. KORP™ is designed to keep the lowest weight while keeping the buoyancy and warming effect. You will find the suit much lighter compared to other models, a key factor to achieve maximum comfort and freedom when moving. The weight is 550 g (men’s size M).
Yamamoto LIMESTONE neoprene
The front part and panels around the core are made of glide skin neoprene from Yamamoto. The neoprene gives you thermal protection and reduces drag. The combination of premium neoprene with UltraFlex inner liner makes the suit extremely soft and flexible.
The remaining parts are made of thinnest double-lined neoprene for maximum flexibility and high durability.
KORP™ is designed with pro-running properties. The thin and flexible neoprene in the legs gives you the freedom needed when running, equivalent to running in short running tights.
ARK’s signature anti-leak cut minimizes water to enter and allows you to keep dry. This means we can use thinner neoprene and still keep the same warming properties as if using thicker (and heavier) neoprene.
The master buoyancy belt
The signature ARK “master buoyancy belt” panel is strategically placed below the lunges and around the core. The construction gives you stability and makes the suit stay in place while swimming. The panel is made of 3 mm neoprene for increased buoyancy.
Neck and collar part is designed to seal when swimming. The shape is constructed to snug even when moving around a lot in the water.
Arm ends are equipped with a unique cuff construction. The 0.5 mm cuff will close tightly around the upper arm with a smooth and compact fit.
The suit features a pocket for extra belongings (for example energy). Placed on the lower back and can easily be reached. Updated images will be uploaded soon - the pocket is tilted to the right on the 2022 model. Zipper closing construction.
Stretch tape is placed on seams to reduce the risk of chafing.
Ultra-stretch liner makes the neoprene extremely flexible.
Robust YKK №10 front zipper.
KORP™ is designed with separate arm-sleeves which makes it easy to customize depending on climate without compromising on the fit. The sleeves are made of 1 mm double-lined neoprene.

The size chart is just a guide. Since the fit is most individual you should try the suit. Our suits are flexible, if you are between two sizes we recommend you to take the smaller size.
