Most swimmers know the devastating feeling of putting on your beloved tech suit and ripping the fabric or even noticing corroded
seams due to wear and tear from use. Luckily the days of throwing your ripped or torn tech suit away are over! The Repair Service
can repair all defects of your tech suit according to the original procedure.

Please see below a list of everything that can be repaired:

  • tears in the fabric
  • loose corroded seams
  • detached brand & Fina logo’s
  • gusset repair
  • customizing tech suits for Paralympic swimmers

Besides the benefits the Repair Service offers to you as a swimmer, it is also a great initiative in terms of sustainability! Did you
know? Robsport Repair Service is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), promoting responsible
consumption, reducing waste and mitigating climate impact. For example:

SDG 14: life below water: the Repair Service champions sustainable practices by extending the lifespan of tech suits. This not only
reduces the need for new materials but also minimizes resource extraction from terrestrial ecosystems, promoting responsible
usage. Furthermore, it avoids the purchase of a brand new tech suit when your current suit is still good for use #money value

SDG 12: responsible consumption and production: the repair service promotes responsible consumption and production by
extending the lifespan of tech suits, reducing waste, and aligning with a circular economy model. It emphasizes reuse, repair and
recycling, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly production approach!

SDG 10: reduced inequalities: the Repair Service makes it possible for swimmers to access affordable repair solutions rather than
replacing tech suits. This promotes inclusivity by ensuring that a wider range of swimmers can afford to maintain and use their tech suits.
