SKINSUIT MATERIALS AND PAD
There are four kind of fabrics used in the skinsuit.
They differ considering the shape and needs of specific body parts. In the upper part they are lighter and more breathable and in the lower part they are thicker and more compressive.
All neon coloured parts use pre-dyed lycra, so while stretching they won’t loose the colour.
The materials are produced by Italian and French global leaders in manufacturing ladder proof fabric companies for the sport technical sector.
The various used fabrics have different technical qualities and were developed in order to offer maximum comfort during the sport activity.
All the fabrics are tested and certificated oeko-tex 100.
The ending strap on the legs is basically made with the same material as side panels and shoulders. It is starchy with silicone print on the inside. While it holds its position, it does not create uncomfortable compression.
Materials fit the body like second skin, are UV protective and fast drying; one-of-a-kind alleys for all sports requiring maximum effort.

We decided to use pads of Italian Elastic Interface®. Their pads have revolutionised the history and industry of cycling pads by breaking with the tradition of ineffective padding that failed to address the wellbeing of cyclists. The pads meet ISO 9001 standard, which recognises 100% Made in Italy production process. Next is Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® that guarantees the non-toxicity of our raw materials, and also BLUESIGN® certification for our sustainable textile manufacturing methods.
In our skinsuit we are using Road performance slim woman PAD.
It’s a super light-weight version of the Road Performance, weighing only 33 gr; thin and super breathable. These aspects are enhanced by the Super Air top layer and the thinner but more supportive perineal inserts. Ideal for competitive riders that want to “feel the saddle”.
