Dynafit RC U Racing Suit


At first glance, the RC U Racing Suit may appear to be a “run of the mill” skinsuit from Dynafit, but it turns out they had something up their sleeves! The RC U is an entirely seamless skinsuit made from a body-mapped combination of Nilit Innergy fabric and Dryarn Polypropylene. These four-way stretch materials have been carefully assembled to increase warmth and ventilation, but to also give a slight compression effect to actively remove lactic acid while skinning and skiing. The faster lactic acid removal artificially increases your lactate threshold, meaning you can run a few beats higher per minute without blowing up. Legal doping built into your suit? We won’t tell if you won’t. Internal skin pockets are accessed via a semi-auto locking zipper that is smooth and fast when you need it but stays in place when you’d rather have it stay put. The Dynafit RC U skin-suit works best for already-fit skiers, but if you are up to the challenge it’ll be irreplaceable.

  • Nilit Innergy is anti-microbial and bounces Far Infrared Rays back into your muscles rather than allowing them to escape the fabric, which supposedly heats your muscles up an extra few degrees.
  • Repeated washing has been shown to have no effect on the fabric’s properties, so your fancy new suit will be around for the long haul.
  • Dryarn absorbs a fraction of the moisture vs. traditional nylon, allowing for increased sweat-wicking rather than getting boggy and chilled.
  • Dryarn is also 27% more breathable and dissipates twice as much heat as nylon.
  • Boot cut-outs for compatibility and seamless transitions.
  • Thumb holes keep the sleeves in place and the elements out.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Kevin Roop
Would a L/XL be too big for me? I'm 5'9" 155, What size suit would you say I should get in your selection? Thx
Answer from Ian C
Hey Kevin, according to the size chart the L/XL would be too large for you but in reality, these are so stretchy they can fit a wide range of skimo aficionados! That size should be fine.

Pete (used product regularly)
I've raced in this suit a couple of times and trained in it a few times. It has served me well, and has operated as any other race suit. No side cutouts for dynafit boots which I was surprised by.

Fit: I'm 140 lbs 5'9" it fits me quite well, perhaps a bit more room to grow but not much.

Dropped one star simply because I'm not sure if its worth the extra $$ above other suits.

Question from Aaron
Did they remove the gummy bear pocket on this version?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Aaron! Ha! Gummy bear pocket is gone with this one, unfortunately.
Answer from Trace Leches
Also, for anyone else reading: the "gummy bear pocket" is a reference to the headlamp battery pocket found sewn into the collar of the original DNA Suit that could be used for storing any external battery packs on larger headlamps.
