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.

Our search for the perfect skinsuit to boldly go where no spandex has gone before ended abruptly when a clear winner emerged. After laying hands on the Ski Trab skinsuit, we knew it was t..

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.
Wild claims aside..

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 ..
