La Sportiva tried selling racing suits in North America a few years ago. Unfortunately the suits were too awesome for the nascent local market, which couldn’t stomach the nearly $600 price tag. Not a company that accepts failure, La Sportiva has managed to produce almost-as-awesome suits (just missing the previously included hood and gloves) at a *much* better price.

The Syborg Racing Suit features a reasonably warm lycra weave that, combined with the darker color, makes it feasible to wear by itself. It has all the race suit features you’d expect:

  • Boot buckle cutouts on the cuff will save you from fumbling with pants during transition.
  • Large front skin pocket is a must have feature so you don’t have to remove your pack.
  • Water bottle pocket keeps your hydration close to you for quick access and to prevent freezing.
  • Seams are sewn flat and reinforcements can be found in the shoulders to resist pack wear.
  • Zippered transceiver pocket has outside access just in case the unthinkable happens.
  • Zippered fly has outside access just in case the thinkable happens.
  • Internal pockets keep you organized for the long journey soon-to-be behind.

Update 2016/17: The suit has a new, faster color scheme.

Question from Frank
I don't understand the stirrups. Do they go outside or inside the boots? If outside, how do you work the buckles.m?
Answer from jbo
Hi Frank, the stirrups go outside (underneath) the boots. There are reinforced areas in the fabric which you can cut out to expose the buckles on your boots.

Question from Bryan
Does LS do euro sizing? I'm an athletic 5'7"...deciding between Small or Med
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Bryan, small would be my choice as medium might be a bit long. I am 5' 8" and a wiry 130lbs and I fit the small just fine.
Answer from jbo
Hi Bryan, the sizes listed are US sizes, which are shifted from Europe (e.g. US Small = EU Medium).

Question from Daniel
Hey Guys,

Are the heel stirrups meant to go underneath the sole of the boot? Seems like a stretch for the fabric though I am trying to figure out the best fit for a pair of aliens.

Answer from jbo
Hi Daniel, yes the stirrups go under the sole in the arch area. To operate the lever you'll need to cut open a slot in the reinforced area of the cuff.
