Unique fabric combination
VIGG™ is made of a unique fabric combination.
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.
Oekotex certificated woven stretch fabric
The remaining parts are made of premium woven stretch-fabric. This is one of the fastest and most innovative fabrics available. The fabric is extremely lightweight with the lowest water absorption. Treated with long-lasting water repellent coating which reduces drag significantly.
We know that running has a big impact during swimrun. VIGG™ is designed with optimal running properties. The hi-end fabric in the leg part allows you to run with zero restrictions.
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 signature ARK “master belt” panel is placed around the core. The construction gives you stability and makes the suit stay in place while swimming, it also increases the 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.
VIGG™ features a back pocket for extra belongings (for example energy). The pocket is split into two parts and covered with an overlapping flap. It’s placed on the lower back and can be reached from both the right and left sides.
VIGG™ is equipped with a YKK №5 front zipper. This model is smaller and weighs less compared to the №10 zipper style.
