Coincidentally, much of 2XU's engineering towards body position also aids in buoyancy. And accordingly, the V:2 ensures an efficient body position through the development and implementation of its velocity strakes and rollbar technologies. Basically, the velocity strakes are strategically placed and angled points of 5mm raised surface that run from the neck to the knee.
These strakes perform many functions, but one of their more notable applications is improving posture in the water, or more precisely put, they efficiently channel water along the body in order to increase your stability and flow. This results in less sideways movement in choppy conditions, and also, it provides an enhanced lift to the body in glassy waters. The rollbars that run along the sides from the hip to the top of scapula operate with the same principle -- minimizing the shoulder and lats tendency to sink inwards during the locomotion of your stroke. Surely, the aforementioned engineered system of position control sounds right on paper, but you're probably wondering what its real-world application might be.
Well, aside from proprioceptive dynamics, it also brings us to our next subject, hydrodynamics. Basically, the V:2's goal is to make you faster in the water. And just how curvy, sleek shapes minimize your drag coefficient on land, the wetsuit's level of buoyancy is the minimizing variable in the water.
