Aqua Sphere unveils new 2015 Michael Phelps line

The collaboration is to be marked with the April launch of the Xpresso competitive swimsuit.

The 2015 MP line, developed with the technical input and product testing of Phelps (pictured) and hall of fame coach Bob Bowman, will also include performance swim goggles K180 and K180+, and a competitive training Focus Swim Snorkel.

“We are excited to officially introduce Michael Phelps’ signature brand, MP, to the international marketplace, highlighted by our fully integrated collaboration in the development and release of MP’s first competitive racing suit –Xpresso,” Todd Mitchell, business line manager at Aqua Sphere, says.

“Michael and Bob challenged Aqua Sphere to develop a racing suit that distinguishes itself from the other technologies available in the marketplace, with particular attention to finding a way to increase the level of flexibility and range of motion to help improve performance.

“Our team of designers and engineers utilised Aqua Sphere’s proprietary technologies to develop a groundbreaking dual fabric technology called Exo-Core, which is an innovative design combination of stability and flexibility fabrics that serves as the signature feature of the Xpresso.”

The Xpresso racing suit, as well as the K180 and K180+ goggles, will be available in men and women’s styles, as well as multiple colour arrangements.

“My decision to partner with Aqua Sphere and launch the MP brand was driven by the opportunity to enhance the technical aspects of swimming products available in the marketplace and I am proud to be a part of the development of our first competitive racing suit, the Xpresso,” Phelps says.

“I believe we have created a racing suit that provides the correct level of compression in the right areas, combined with flexibility that is noticeably significant in and out of the water.

“From the lightweight material to the eye-popping colours, I’m looking forward to racing in the Xpresso in 2015.”
