Our speed stripe fabric allows the air to smooth over the body limiting drag and returning additional speed increments when riding. Seams are flat locked, and anti-abrasive to minimise any skin chafing and ensure best possible comfort for your time in the saddle. Neck cut is low, with seams moving from the top of the trap down onto the front of the shoulder to limit impact on exterior air flow, as well as ensure limited rub internally. The rear panel seam is dropped below the lower back ensuring it has no role to play in air flow over the body. Legs are finished with silicone speed grippers, which sit close to the quads minimising disturbance to the air flow.
After debating over short, mid, 3/4 sleeves, we have settled on long sleeves, which are cleaner and produce less drag than an unshaven arm. Super comfortable pro-time trial chamois ensures maximum comfort so you can concentrate on pumping those pistons.
Our skin suits have been used by a variety of crit teams and time trial riders. We have taken feedback from the riders themselves as to construction in terms of fabrics, cut, fit and aesthetics. Our aim is to provide the most anatomic designed piece of kit possible which also allows the rider to demonstrate their riding flair through fashion forward imagery and design, taking cues from the velodromes and street circuits which provide the natural habitats for these riders.
