Michael Phelps and Aqua Sphere launch MP brand with new competitive swimsuit

The XPRESSO men’s suit can be pre-ordered now with availability mid-May, while the women’s suit will become available mid-summer.

The 2015 MP line, developed with the technical input and product testing of Phelps and his coach Bob Bowman, will also include performance swim goggles, K180 and K180+, and the competitive training Focus Swim Snorkel, which has been designed and manufactured by Aqua Sphere.

The MP XPRESSO combines Aqua Sphere’s proprietary Exo-Foil and Aqua-Core fabrics to deliver the innovative dual fabric technology, Exo-Core, in a racing suit that not only provides compression, hydrodynamic material and bonded seams, but also increased flexibility and range of motion that allows athletes to maintain relaxed muscles before and during competition to maximise peak performance.

The Exo-Core construction features strategically placed panels designed to reduce energy dissipation through compressive support, while allowing for increased circulation throughout the leg and femoral artery.

The panels work in conjunction with the XPRESSO’s proprietary fabric to offer athletes an unprecedented range of motion in a competitive racing suit.

Phelps says: “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.

“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, starting with the Mesa Grand Prix.”
