IS THIS THE FASTEST ROAD RACE SUIT IN THE WORLD?
WE THINK SO. RESULTS SAY SO.
2 years in our range, constantly in development, for sale for everybody. Our Race Proven Road Race Suit is one of the cornerstones of our Team product lineup.
WHY WE MADE IT.
Road racing is a sport where physical ability and technology go hand in hand. One hundreth of a second can make or break a race, even a career. Elite riders at the top of their game come to us with a lot of questions and demands. We’ll give you a couple but rest assured, these are not the only demands raised:
- “How can I save some Watts?“ - “How can I improve my stability and position on my bike?“- “How can I be more aerodynamic?“ - “I want a suit that provides cooling in hot and humid climates.”
Based on this input we are constantly developing our suits. And it’s not only about wind tunnels and aero research. It’s about developing a suit that makes you feel good on the bike, that’s faster than others and that looks fast. (yes, the mental factor is also something we consider
WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT IT AND HOW WILL IT MAKE YOU FASTER?
Currently there are 2 versions developed. The Race Proven Road Race Suit Light and the Race Proven Road Race Suit.
The short part is made of Sirio, a lightweight, stretchable and supportive fabric, in combination with a Speedsilk aero back panel. For extra wearing comfort and a good, irritation-free fit round the legs, we‘ve used a a widegrip powerband leg gripper.
The sleeves are made of our renowned Airstripe fabric. Since we started using it in our suits, lots of our competitors are implementing it in certain parts of their clothing. What makes us different is our expertise in cutting and placing it in a way that makes you faster. Want proof? Ask Tony, Marianne, Tom, Greg, Philippe, Anna and others.
The torso part of both suits is slightly different. The Light version features an Airmesh back and front torso panel that provides extra cooling in hot and humid circumstances. This is the ideal road race suit in tropical climates.
The regular version features Speedsilk torso panels that provide a bit more aero efficiency in races where the cooling factor isn’t the biggest of concerns. This is the suit riders use in moderate climates.
These characteristics combined give an answer to a lot of questions.
- It will make you faster because the Airmesh, Airstripe and Speedsilk panels provide an aerodynamic advantage.
- It will keep you cooler because the open structure of the Airmesh fabric keeps transpiration longer on the fabric, providing a natural way of cooling down when going hard.
- It will keep you more stable on your bike because the cut, the fabrics and the pad in the shorts are tailored around your optimal aerodynamic position.
Our riders are reporting to us that they are cutting seconds per kilometer off their personal best times. These aren’t all pro’s, but they have one thing in common: the quest for speed. Hell yeah!
