Bioracer SpeedConcept TT – Men

Nopinz has collaborated with BioRacer to bring you one of the fastest “ribbed”-arm skinsuits on the market.

Every serious racer knows which cycling apparel brand has won the most time trial medals since July 2012. For those racers, BioRacer has developed an individual version of its medal-winning Speedmaster TT suit: The Speedwear Concept Aero suit.

The suit is made of a combination of New Monica and Stripe aero fabric. The main fabric has been slightly modified with Speedsilk, a fabric technology that improves the aerodynamics of regular Lycra.

The sleeves have a new and improved aerodynamic cut and are made of an aerodynamically more efficient fabric, Stripe. The cut and fabric are derived from the widely acclaimed Speedmaster Speed Suit. Since London 2012 this is the most copied and most successful speed suit, a pedigree to be proud of.

It is now further enhanced with the Nopinz SpeedPocket – for number placement that is aerodynamically efficient and does not spoil your suit.

An excellent value SpeedSuit guaranteed to help your Time Trial performances

If you are developing aerodynamic sport clothing as a manufacturer, you need to have your product certified in a wind tunnel and evaluated by riders during track testing. Bioracer was the first to make a 3D model of a rider (5 years ago) to test clothing in a wind tunnel. It is the only way to achieve consistent results. 

In our development of this year‘s new line of aero gear, we did wind tunnel testing together with FES at the Institute of Experimental Aerodynamics at the University of Dresden, Germany. Since 2012, Bioracer and a few other companies (Bike Valley) started working together to build the first cycle specific wind tunnel in Belgium. 

This year the wind tunnel was opened, and we did final validation testing together with the Belgian Cycling Federation. In conjunction with wind tunnel testing, it is important to authenticate results with track testing. It is a more realistic environment for the rider. These results are directly comparable with the environment where the cyclists compete. 

We encourage all our customers to test the aerodynamic effect of clothing for themselves. You can test aerodynamics utilizing a power meter. Ride on the same day and road with 2 different suits at the same speed (for example 40km/hr). You can then see that you exert less watts when wearing Bioracer Speedwear skinsuits.

What is a cycling skinsuit?

A skinsuit is designed to be the most aerodynamic clothing you can wear. Premium skinsuits feature special fabrics designed to reduce drag and manipulate airflow.

Fabrics are strategically placed and seams are also carefully considered and premium suits are often developed in the wind tunnel.

How much faster is wearing a skinsuit for cycling?

Aerodynamic drag is the biggest force a cyclist needs to overcome when riding on the flat and typically 80 per cent of said drag is created by the rider. What you wear is therefore hugely significant.

When compared to a jersey and bib shorts, our testing has shown that a skinsuit is 21 to 28 seconds faster on a 25-mile-time trial when travelling at around 25mph.

We tested this at a velodrome, using aCdA (coefficient of drag * area) measuring system. This is calculated by taking a rider's power output and speed, and also taking into account air density, lean angle, rolling resistance and the rider’s position on the track.

The lower the CdA the more aerodynamic the position; you’d expect a position on a time trial bike to have a lower CdA than that on a road bike.

The same rider undertook four test rides each of six 250m laps. The rider rode both the road bike and the time trial bike wearing standard bib shorts and jersey followed by a wearing a skinsuit. For the avoidance of doubt, the same helmet and shoes etc were used on all test runs.

Coefficient of drag (CdA) mWatts for 60min 25 TTResult in time difference
Road bike, shorts & jersey0.2799293.5W
Road bike, skinsuit0.2746289.0W21 seconds
TT bike, shorts & jersey0.2347255.6W
TT bike, skinsuit0.2286250.5W28 seconds

 

As you’d expect, the skinsuit was faster than the bib shorts and jersey set-up. On both the road bike and time trial bike the skinsuit had a saving of around five watts, which over a 25-mile time trial ridden at 25 mph equates to 21 seconds and 28 seconds respectively.

We were slightly surprised by the results and had expected greater wattage savings. For example, if an average rider wore their normal jersey you would expect a wattage difference of between 10-15 watts compared to a skinsuit. The reason for the reduced wattage saving in our testing wasdue to the the jersey being a particularly good fit.

Are expensive skinsuits faster than entry-level versions?

Premium skinsuits claim to offer a significant aerodynamic advantage over more basic, more affordable Lycra suits.

Though £200, ever £300 or more might seem a big investment, when we askedHead of product development and R&D for Rapha,Simon Huntsman, he explained: “The price of the suit is often a reflection of the R&D investment that has gone into ensuring efficient aerodynamic performance. Entry-level suits are generally off-the-peg and top-end suits are invariably custom-fitted.

"Top-end suits are also the result of serious R&D that involves wind tunnel testing to ensure the gains are proven. This is an expensive business.”

We have assembled five leading skinsuits and tested them in a bid to see which is the fastest. As the control we tested a Lycra Santini suit, similar to that used by the leader of the Giro d’Italia. This suit doesn’t make use of the special fabrics and optimised placement of those fabrics.

How we tested the skinsuits

To test the skinsuits we teamed up with WattShop to perform comparative aero testing at Derby velodrome in a controlled environment. This was done in a bid to quantitatively find out which of these suits is the fastest and was completely independent and impartial.

The protocol for the testing was as follows: three different elite riders wore each suit and did controlled runs at 40kph, 45kph, 50kph and 55kph. This was done in a bid to determine a drag/velocity profile for each suit, as suits can be optimised to perform better at certain speeds.

Each rider rode their own personal time trial bike, maintaining a consistent position. The riders were national team pursuit champions Dan Bigham, Jacob Tipper and Jonny Wale. Their ability to ride the pursuit line with precision and ride laps at a metronomic pace helped improve the consistency and accuracy of the data obtained.

The WattShop software is able to interpret the power and speed data for a given run to determine a drag coefficient for each skinsuit at a given speed.

The data presented is the average of the three riders at each respective speed. The CdA is the system drag coefficient for the rider and bike; a lower number equates to lower drag. By subtracting the watts required to overcome drivetrain friction and rolling resistance we are left with the watts required to overcome air resistance – ie aero watts. The aero watts and CdA for each respective suit are presented as an average of the test riders’ results.

All the riders who wore the suits were asked to rank them for fit and comfort too.

In addition to the aero testing we wore the suits in a number of rides and time trials to see how they feel and perform in real world conditions. Many thanks to WattShop and Brother NRG cycling team for their assistance.

Bioracer Speedwear Concept TT with Nopinz pocket

Reasons to buy

+Good fit+Convenient number pocket+Fastest on test

Reasons to avoid

-Empty List

Bioracer has a huge pedigree in time trial suits and claims to have won more time trial medals than any other brand since 2012. Tony Martin and Tom Dumoulin have worn Bioracer suits, as have Team Sky in the days before Rapha developed its own.

The Bioracer suit has had extensive R&D and features special ‘stripe’ fabric on the sleeves and shoulders. The fabrics employed have been chosen for their low drag qualities.

The fit is good and all our testers felt it was comfortable enough for longer time trials. Another nice detail is the inclusion of a Nopinz number pocket. The main advantage of this is not aerodynamic, but one of convenience and not damaging the suit with pinholes over time.

The Speedwear Concept lives up to expectation too, with our testing suggesting it was on average the fastest on test. Interestingly the suit also appeared to have a sweet spot, exhibiting the lowest CdA at 50kph. Something which is ideal if you’re targeting a 19-minute 10-mile time trial.

The black we have is a standard colour available through Nopinz, but there are custom options available too.

Velotec Pro Aero Speedsuit best cycling skinsuit

Velotec Pro Aero Speedsuit

Reasons to buy

+High quality+Effective for certain shapes and sizes

Reasons to avoid

-Empty List

This is the skinsuit that the Brother NRG cycling team have used since the beginning of 2017. Dan Bigham, Charlie Tanfield and Si Wilson were wearing the Velotec skinsuit when they broke the national 10-mile team competition record in June with a combined time of 53.15, which equates to a speed of 33.8mph (54.4kph) – the speed where the Velotec suit emerges as the fastest for two out of three riders in our test.

The Velotec uses a similar pattern to the Endura and Bioracer suits, but the placing of the various fabric textures on the body is particularly fast for certain shapes and positions on the bike – possibly more by luck than by design.

Something to note is that testing was conducted with the long-sleeved Velotec suit.

In the eight months they’ve been using it the Brother NRG team report that they’ve had no durability issues with the Velotec suit – no broken zips or other on-bike malfunctions. Velotec’s top range is made in Italy and the quality is high. The chamois is also Italian-made and is more than fit for purpose.

For sizing, small means small. If you’re 175-180cm and about 70kg the medium will be wrinkle-free.

Endura D2Z Encapsulator TT skinsuit

Reasons to buy

+Good fit around arms and shoulders+Performed well in tests

Reasons to avoid

-Chamois not very comfortable

 

Developed in conjunction with Drag2Zero in the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 wind tunnel the Endura Encapsulator is a popular choice amongst top testers in the UK.

A pro-level skinsuit the Encapsulator was tested and developed in conjunction with the Movistar and Cervélo-Bigla teams – a partnership that literally has a proven track record when Alex Dowsett broke the hour record using an Endura suit.

The Encapsulator has all the features of a top skinsuit including an integrated number pocket.

The Italian PowerLycra fabric Endura uses is of course placed so that the ribbed fabric is at the upper arm and side flank to turbulate the airflow in those crucial areas in order to keep it attached for longer.

The Encapsulator is made to order; however, our suit was a standard medium size. It is important to point this out, because we suspect customisation would most likely result in an improved fit and a faster suit.

We found the fit to be very good around the arms and shoulders, but the chamois was not the most comfortable and I experienced excess fabric around the edge of the pad. Something I found distracting in longer events.

With regard to aero testing the Encapsulator performed well and although third, was very close to the Velotec and Bioracer suits.

Since this test Endura has launched the 2018 D2Z Encapsulator, which is says is a completely different suit that is significantly faster thanks to Silicone Surface Topography (SST). The new suit, which won a Eurobike award, is optimised for a time trial position at speeds between 46kph and 58kph, and boasts an aero version of Endura's 1,000-series pad, specifically shaped for an aggressive riding position.

We plan to test the new suit and will report back.

The Body Paint 3.3 uses a ribbed fabric on the shoulders and arms and perforated leg textile. On the rear there is a flap to cover the leading edge of your number, but there is no dedicated pocket, such as that on the Endura and Bioracer.

The Castelli is very light and features a perforated mesh on the legs and parts of the back. For racing in very hot conditions, I would probably reach for the Castelli first, but for this reason I also question its long-term durability.

Comfort is decent and was ranked mid pack.

The results for the Castelli Body Paint 3.3 were perhaps the most intriguing of the suits we tested. On two of our riders it was on a par with the Bioracer, Endura and Velotec. However on one of the riders, the suit was markedly slower. So slow that it came below the Santini baseline suit, well and truly in last place. It is unlikely this result was an anomaly, as for the rider in question, the Body Paint was consistently slow across all the test speeds. What this suggests, is that different riders shapes, may not suit certain suits well. This one low result consequently had a bearing on the data, dragging the aero ranking of the suit down to fourth place.

Assos CS.speedfireChronosuit S7 £290

(Image credit: Cycling Studio)

The Assos suit has reportedly been developed with the use of a wind tunnel and is notable for being worn by the USA and Swiss teams in the Olympics. It is also worn by the BMC team and perhaps most famously, was worn by Fabian Cancellara in Rio where he won the gold medal.

There is radio pocket (in case you’re a pro) and a small zipped valuables pocket on the rear, which is ideal for a car key so you don’t have to ask the timekeeper to look after it. Overall the quality is excellent and it stands out against the others on test. Consistent with other Assos products, this is a suit that is built to last. We would like to see the inclusion of a number pocket though, as this helps to stop the suit getting damaged.

The Assos logo pattern received a Marmite reaction when I wore it at a local time trial. I like it, but the pattern can create the illusion of a high waist, which isn’t the most flattering.

Our testing suggested the Assos suit was consistently slower than the other four suits on test, which came as a surprise. Despite not being the fastest, the consensus among all of our test riders was that the Assos suit was without doubt the most comfortable on test.

Which skinsuit was the best?

Firstly we should point out that although we have made every effort to control variables and obtain consistent and reliable data, aerodynamic testing is difficult to do and anomalies are possible.

A skinsuit can be system dependent. While our data suggested certain suits were universally fast on all our riders (Velotec and Bioracer), other suits were faster or slower depending on who was riding it. A notable result was the Castelli 3.3, which was within 1-2 watts of the Endura and Bioracer on two of our riders, but over 10 watts slower on the other.

Another observation is that the differences between the premium skinsuits is on the whole small, within the region of 1-3 watts. However the difference between the best-performing suits and a basic Lycra suit appears to be very significant. At 50kph, the Bioracer and Endura suits were 25 and 19 watts faster than the Santini respectively.

With respect to drag, the performance of suits at different velocities was rarely linear. In most cases a trend was observed where the lowest CdA was around the 50kph mark. Intended for use by pro riders, this is a sweet spot typically averaged in most time trials. Perhaps there’s a gap in a market for suits for mere mortals that are engineered to be optimal at around 40-45kph.

Comfort should also be factored in. If you are doing a long event, then chafing in the wrong place or an uncomfortable chamois could severely impact your ride, probably more than the 5-10 watt saving you maybe getting over a comfier suit.

Overall the premium suits are expensive, but if looked at it from a cost per watt saving they make far more economical sense than a £5,000 top-end time trial frame frame. The Velotec is our winner because it combines excellent aerodynamics with a more affordable.

Is This The World's Fastest Skinsuit? - GCN Tech Show Ep.180

If you’re new to cycling, the term ‘skinsuit’ may sound a little horror movie-ish or just plain disconcerting. But picture a short-sleeve (or in some cases, long-sleeve) onesie made of Lycra: That’s a skinsuit. Whether you’re a crit racer, a cyclocrosser, or a triathlete, you’ve likely landed on this article because you’re trying to find a cycling skinsuit—also known as a speedsuit—to wear for some kind of racing. And honestly, unless you’re on a team that has custom-printed skinsuits for its riders, it can be a little confusing as far as what kind to order and what style is right for the race you’re doing.

First of all, when would you actually want to wear a skinsuit? Honestly, most casual riders can skip this article entirely. Unless you’re planning to race criteriums, cyclocross, or triathlon, skinsuits will likely not be an important part of your cycling wardrobe. Designed for aerodynamics (or in the case of triathlon or very rainy cyclocross races, hydrodynamics), skinsuits are for racing, not casual riding. Rarely do they come with full-size pockets, and unless it’s laundry day and all of your other kit is dirty, you wouldn’t wear one on a training ride.

But if you’re trying to improve your aerodynamics while racing or streamline for a triathlon, you may want to consider a skinsuit. There are differences between the options, though, so here we’ve gathered several of the best for men and women. But first, some guidance on how to pick the right one for you and other questions you should ask yourself when buying.

How Do I Choose a Skinsuit?

  • Know what you want: Some people really love pockets, while others prefer to be a bit more minimal. Few races where you would wear a skinsuit require storing anything in a pocket, but some people like having the pocket for riding around with a phone or gel before the race.
  • Look for the "full zip” when possible: Skinsuits used to have a more onesie-style construction in terms of the zipper, but in recent seasons, most brands have shifted to a "full zip" construction that visually looks more like the bottom of a jersey. This allows just a bit more wiggle room and often lengthens the life of your zipper since it takes some of the strain off of it as you wiggle in and out.
  • Avoid commitment: Because sizing can be so whacky on skinsuits since you’re trying to fit a top and a bottom as a single piece, you’ll want to avoid committing before trying on whenever possible. Look for options that offer free returns and exchanges, or, in the case of custom options, look for brands that will send a fit kit so you can try a few sizes to figure out what’s best for you.
  • Check your measurements and their measurements: A soft tape measure will be your best friend in this search, since everything from bicep to torso length can affect how well a skinsuit will fit.
  • Get aero: When you do try on your new skinsuit, don’t just stand around. Get on your bike and assume the aero position to ensure that nothing pulls or sags once you’re bent over.
  • Beware of mixing up triathlete and cyclist skinsuits: Triathlon skinsuits or speedsuits will have very, very light padding, but not much by way of a chamois, since you’ll be swimming and running in it as well as riding. So they won’t be as comfortable on the bike. And you wouldn’t want to wear a cycling-specific skinsuit for a triathlon, because the swim will cause the chamois to get waterlogged and pretty darn gross and squishy for the ride and run.

Why Are So Many Companies Only Making Skinsuits for Men?

Here’s the deal: It is wildly frustrating how few options are available for women unless you decide to go custom. This just plain sucks, and it’s incredible to me how brands who make men’s skinsuits skip the women’s side altogether—even the big ones like Rapha that are otherwise doing awesome things with women’s clothing. My personal speculation (and what I’ve heard from some manufacturers) is that women are rarely racing seriously enough without a team to want to get a skinsuit, while men are more inclined to race solo for longer. This is a crappy reason, and hopefully as more and more women enter the sport, we’ll have more options for women’s skinsuits widely available. But for now, we’ve pulled together a few great options from brands who do understand that women are just as entitled to excellent racing gear as men.

Any Advice for While I’m Wearing It?

Two tips: First, apply chamois cream directly to your nether regions rather than putting it on the chamois, otherwise you’ll likely end up with it all over the place. Second, when getting ready to race, have someone help you pin your race number to your skinsuit while you’re wearing it and bent over in your aero position (make sure you trust the person to not stab you with a safety pin!), because pinning it before you put it on inevitably leads to ripping your number or the material.

How We Selected

As someone who got her start in triathlon and eventually fell in love with cyclocross after a quick jaunt in the crit racing world, I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to riding around looking like you’re wearing a pair of onesie pajamas. You’d be surprised how much cycling kit has evolved in the last 15 years, since the day I first pulled on a tri suit (backwards, oops) to now. I’ve raced and worn a skinsuit in everything from a boiling hot Ironman or a ’cross race in a blizzard, so I know what I’m looking for in a skinsuit (and what to avoid).

As I evaluated the best skinsuits available for cyclists, I factored in a few things. Primarily, I looked at the overall fit and comfort, the durability of the fabric and the zipper, and the general aesthetic. That little extra “something” didn’t hurt either, whether it was a bonus pocket, a design detail in the fabric, or a particularly grippy-yet-comfortable silicone band on the legs.

Men’s Short Sleeve

Rapha Pro Team Aerosuit

$430 AT RAPHA

This is perhaps the most versatile skinsuit of the bunch, thanks to the three pockets in the back and a simple black design that cleverly mimics shorts and a jersey. You won’t look as out of place jumping in a group ride on laundry day when all of your jerseys are in the wash. Our testers noted that it was comfortable in addition to being aerodynamic. Because it uses the same chamois as the much-loved Pro Team Bib Shorts and similar technology and fit as the Aero Jersey, the Rapha Pro Team Aerosuit is basically a jersey and bibs combination that just happens to be bonded together into one piece.

Men’s Long Sleeve

dhb Aeron Lab Raceline Long-Sleeve Speedsuit

$231 AT CHAINREACTIONCYCLES.COM

Like Rapha’s Aerosuit, the Aeron Lab Raceline also offers a pocket in the back. And thanks to the style of the zipper, with an open bottom panel that mimics a full-zip jersey, this speedsuit can almost double as the jersey-and-bibs combo that you would wear on a casual ride, though it doesn’t have the same aesthetic. (Throw a vest on, and you’re basically incognito.) The Aeron collection is designed for the ultimate in aerodynamics, and while the fabric is thin and likely won’t provide a lot of warmth in later season cyclocross races, it will feel damn fast.

Men’s Budget

The Black Bibs Black Road Suit

$100 AT THEBLACKBIBS.COM

The founders of The Black Bibs had a singular mission for their brand when they started: To create a pair of simple, unbranded bib shorts that any cyclist could afford. (Their originals are only $40 and nearly as comfortable and long-lasting as options 10 times as expensive.) They’ve since added other simple pieces to their lineup, including the $100 Road Suit in basic black. It’s ideal for cyclists who are new to the crit or cyclocross scene who want to try out racing in a skinsuit but don’t want to commit to a pricier model. And like the bib shorts, this skinsuit is comfortable and incredibly stretchy. It also has two large rear pockets so can be used on laundry day in a pinch, though there’s no mistaking the fact that you’re wearing a skinsuit when you ride in this one.

Women’s Short Sleeve

Voler Prestige Velocity Suit

$132 AT VOLER.COM

Made in the U.S., Voler’s Prestige appears pretty basic but is far from basic in terms of material or construction. Because of the different fabric types throughout the skinsuit—tailored to provide the best aerodynamics and breathability—the fabric ends up with a cool patterned effect. The sleeves (slightly longer than you’d find on a traditional short sleeve) stay in place with light grips, and the same is true of the shorts. The exposed zipper and jersey-style bottom at the waist allow riders to fully open the zipper for easy cooling (and less tricky taking off and putting on). Three pockets in the back make it ideal for longer events where you’d want a snack and multitool on hand. Bonus: The fabric on the back and sleeves is SPF 50.

Women’s Long Sleeve

Peppermint Cycling Co. Plume Navy Long-Sleeves Skinsuit

$231 AT PEPPERMINTCYCLING.COM

Weirdly, this small Canadian company is at the forefront of providing incredibly stylish long-sleeve skinsuits for up-and-coming cyclocross racers who want to look cool as well as comfortable. The Plume has two rear pockets, and there are plenty of women who opt to wear it for even casual road rides, thanks to its thoughtful design. Because it’s navy on the top and closer to black on the bottom, at a distance it looks like a long-sleeve jersey with shorts. But in a racing situation, you won’t have to worry about your jersey riding up or getting caught or losing precious seconds to extra fabric flapping around.

Women’s Budget

Pactimo Ascent 3.0 Skinsuit

$162 AT PACTIMO.COM

Custom clothing company Pactimo also offers a few skinsuit options for women in pre-made patterns and colors. As I mentioned, the women’s skinsuit market is sorely lacking, unfortunately, so it’s nice to see more brands stepping up and providing options for women who may not have teams to race with but want an aerodynamic advantage with a skinsuit. This is nothing fancy, but the fit is great. There’s a single pocket in the back, and the sleeves are “Euro cut,” meaning they come down slightly lower than more standard jersey sleeves.

Custom

Champion Systems Skinsuits

$152 AT CHAMP-SYS.COM

If you’re part of a club or team, or you just have a crew of friends that you ride or race with, consider going custom on skinsuits. Strangely enough, you’ll have more options available for you, since custom brands typically have men’s and women’s options available. The Champion Systems skinsuit is comfortable and, frankly, flattering. The faux jersey zip in the front means a more durable zipper and an easier time getting the suit on and off. The skinsuits are true to size, though I’d recommend getting their fit kit to guarantee that you order the right size, since the sleeves don’t have as much stretch as a more casual jersey. The design and ordering process is also quite simple. The only potential downside is that you need to order 10 pieces to get started, but split between even a handful of riders who agree on one design, it can end up being a cost-effective way to grow your cycling wardrobe in one order.

For Triathlons

2XU Perform Front Zip Tri Suit

$160 AT 2XU.COM

Available in men’s and women’s sizing, the Perform Front Zip is a simple sleeveless skinsuit designed for triathlons. It’s not meant for bike racing, and, in fact, UCI- and USA Cycling-sanctioned races won’t allow racers to use sleeveless tops. This suit is speedy in the water, and the slim chamois doesn’t feel diaper-like when you run out of the lake and hop on the bike. Sure, it’s not a lot of padding, but you don’t want to have much when swimming or running. And the suit is lightly compressive, so while it won’t make you magically feel peppier, it might help offer some relief during long course races. Pro tip: When it comes to triathlon suits, always check where the zipper is. Some are sneaky and designed with it in the back. This is not a good thing, because if at any point pre-race you need to use the port-a-potty, you’ll be asking the guy behind you in line to unzip you.

Best for Cold-Weather ’Cross

Castelli Sanremo Ros Thermosuit

$425 AT COMPETITIVE CYCLIST

Want to feel like it’s pajama day at school but while you’re at a bike race? You’ll need a thermal skinsuit with long sleeves and full tights. Enter the Sanremo Ros Thermosuit, built for the cyclocrosser racing in the dead of winter (or just late fall) looking to stay warm on the course. It absolutely is overkill for all but the worst weather conditions, but if you’ve ever lined up for a cyclocross race in negative temps, you know how much you would be willing to spend to be slightly warmer. This suit is also a weirdly awesome addition to a fat biker or winter weather rider’s wardrobe, as it can be worn with a vest or jacket and (in the coldest cases) pants on top of it to provide full-body fleecy warmth. (The only downside is that using the bathroom will be a very chilly experience.)
