New Funkita APEX Predator Is Here!

4 July 2018

APEX Predator Race Suit Fire Matrix
We're making a splash in the new APEX Predator Race Suit!

With the Australian Pan Pac Trials wrapping up tonight we thought we'd give you some news to keep all the excitement going! We are proud to announce the official release of our brand new race suit the APEX Predator!

With over 100 hours of in-water testing with a variety of Australia's top swimmers, including Commonwealth Games medallist Holly Barratt, we can say with confidence that this is our best performing and best fitting performance suit to date!

In addition to thorough testing from our F-Teamers, former NCAA swimmer Julie Stupp put on the new Fire Matrix APEX Predator and tested it out for the Swim Outlet 2018 Tech Suit Review. Julie was particularly impressed with the new fabric which is designed to be lightweight and flexible while also providing even compression throughout the entire suit. She said it felt 'amazing in the water' and allowed her to 'slip through the water at high speeds without feeling hindered in any way.' Overall she felt that it was one of the top suits that she tested, giving it an A Grade!

Some of our F-Teamers have been lucky enough to get their hands on the new suits early and have been putting it through the paces at some big events. One such F-Teamer is Paralympian and World Record Holder Lakeisha 'Lucky' Patterson.

The Pan Pac Trials in Adelaide have been going swimmingly for Lucky, having already earned herself 3 gold medals in the 50m/400m Freestyle and 200m IM, all in her new Fire Matrix APEX Predator. Her busy race schedule is finishing up today with just two more events, the 100m Freestyle and the 100m Butterfly, and we wish her the absolute best for her last few of races.

Fellow F-Teamers Holly Barratt and Carla Buchanan have also been donning their new APEX Predator suit for their Pan Pacs Trials races. Holly's blue Blast Matrix suit helped her stand out as she powered into third place in the 100m Backstroke event on Monday night and she is now gearing up for her final event of the trials, the 50m Freestyle. Carla has also been doing really well with two 7th place finishes, in the 200m and 400m Freestyle.

Some of our other F-Teamers have also been busy testing out the APEX at different events with some fantastic results!

Recently Tassie F-Teamer Stef McCarthy made personal best times and set new Tasmanian records in the 50m and 200m Freestyle and the 50m Breaststroke while racing in her Fire Matrix APEX Predator suit.

While over in the UK F-Teamer Pia Murray competed in her new Blast Matrix APEX Predator suit at the Scottish Nationals and won herself a silver medal in the 100m Backstroke with her best time ever in that event. She's also keen to race in it again at the British Championships later this month.
