Des Moines, IA, Sept, 12, 2011 – First out of the water at the Hy-Vee Triathlon in Des Moines, Rocket Science Sports presents a new WTC approved swim skin. The Rocket 2Skin uses several technologies to ensure a smooth, fast swim. Each suit is laser cut and ultrasonic welded from RSS 0.0 fabric, a lightweight material with compression and low drag characteristics. Thermoflex panels maintain flexibility while optimizing thermal regulation, and dimples are strategically arranged to reduce pressure drag during the swim.
Josh Amberger, a Rocket Science Sports sponsored athlete, entered the water at the Hy-Vee 5150 Championship with a purpose. The 22 year old Aussie has been leaving his mark on the 5150 series this season with several podium finishes. Notable among those was his 2nd place finish in Zurich, just ahead of Chris McCormack. “My main goal was to take home the $20,000 swim prime, to be honest.” he said, “and my new Rocket 2Skin was brilliant – it was definitely the fastest suit I’ve worn.”
The Rocket 2Skin designed by aerospace engineer Marcin Sochacki, owner of Rocket Science Sports out of Austin, Texas knows his designs are fast. “We test everything to ensure that our ideas on paper translate into performance in the real world.”
Since the WTC modified the rules for non-wetsuit legal apparel ahead of the 70.3 and Ironman World Championships, Rocket Science Sports modified their already fast Rocket Skin to meet the new requirements. Rocket Science Sports has accelerated production of the redesigned Rocket 2Skin to ensure that athletes at the Championships in Vegas, and Kona, Hawaii will have the fastest legal skins when it counts the most.
The Rocket 2Skin will be available for demos and purchase at the 70.3 Championships as well as the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii at the Rocket Science Sports booth.
