Castelli Sanremo Speed Suit, So fast we patented it. Skinsuits are obviously fast, but the aren't practical for road racing for two reasons; they have no pockets and, perhaps more importantly, its tough to take a nature break in one. So we created a new and improved aero jersey with a full zip and new fabrics and then stitched it to a Body Paint bibshort. The jersey portion and short portion overlap on the front for full coverage, but leaving the front unstitched allows for nature breaks even from the bike(we tested that too). The three rear pockets are securely held in place all the time even when fully loaded.
The main aero benefit comes through improved airflow around the torso by keeping the sides of the jersey in tension. We where also able to remove the bibstraps, improving comfort and increasing ventilation.
The Sanremo Speedsuit had its first victory on the roads to Roubaix proving what a great all round piece of kit it is.
