Incorporating Nike Flywire technology, Phantom 4D features a first-of-its kind "biomimic" waistband that moves with the body. The modified Nike Flywire cables provide stability and engineered compression zones to keep the shorts in place while the body is in motion. Just like a Chinese finger trap.The 4D waistband is welded, providing minimal bulk and water absorption, and includes the EZ Fly closure, also featuring a welded gusset,no outseam, laser cut and welded streamlined zipper pocket.
Phantom 4D also features Phantom technology, including 4-way superstretch fabric made from 100-percent recycled polyester and performance water repellency for minimal absorption and reduced weight. It contours to the body and has seamless welded construction, making the Phantom 4D the most comfortable high-performance boardshort to date.

"If the idea is to create a boardshort that moves as you move, then the graphic needs to reflect that connection to the body.
