Introducing Bont's new Retro Elite Skinsuit, made in collaboration with Vie13 Kustom Apparel. Vie13 were the first to bring coated speed fabrics to inline speed skating with the goal to make a suit that was faster no matter the body shape. When you are counting every millisecond, materials and design are essential to the execution of your best performance.
Coated Speed Fabric
Polymer coatings, as seen on the sails of racing sailboats, are integrated on the top and the outside of the legs. The placement and density of the coating allows you to smooth, bend and even accelerate the turbulent wind flowing over.
Seams No More
The coated speed fabric technology allows the suits to have more seams without drag. Therefore, making the suit more comfortable and better fitting for all body shapes.
Reduce Frontal Wind Profile
The use of thermodynamics help keep the air flow closer to the athlete's limbs and torso. The closer you keep the air to the body, the smaller you make the frontal mass which results in you skating the same speed easier and longer.
Venting towards the back of the hamstring allows the hot air to come out while cooler air flows over the top.
Venting under the arm is the same as the leg vents, and is designed away from the leading edge of the athlete but catches flow to help the transition to the back close to the body.
Please note Bont made both Women and Men’s Elite suits based on the sizing chart below. The chart is set to give a looser fit, if you are on the smaller side of a size in this chart we recommend you choose a sizing down.
