It's not the lycra itself that makes you fast, it's the efficient functionality of a well-designed race suit. With stash pockets for skins, gels, beacons, and even water bottles, racers rarely need to access their pack during a race. Add special cutouts for boot buckles and there is much less fumbling during transitions.
NRG is not an acronym for Neat Racing Garment. It’s actually a cute shorthand for the word “energy”, which this suit may give you in spades. How would a racing suit do that, you ask? We can’t make sense of it, but the makers of Powerkler, the “thermo-sensitivity bio-activation textile”, try to explain here. Wearing this suit just might make you a better person.

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.
