SPEEDO Takes To The Ice
The ice suit’s fabric, which is scientifically modeled on sharkskin, reduces drag based on each sledding sport’s unique airflow direction. Its compression effect helps muscles return quickly to their original shape after contraction. Special Flexskin fabric in key suit locations allows athletes to push effectively during race starts.
The fit gives athletes a greater feel for their sleds and the track, and also eliminates nearly all of the fabric vibration, gapping and sagging often found in other speed suits. The design also helps reduce energy dissipation, allowing athletes’ bodies to recover quickly, according to the company.
