We set out to re-engineer the tri suit. Using the very best fabrics, the most innovative construction techniques and the most advanced manufacturing technologies.
THE RESULT IS THE Fe226 AEROFORCE TRIATHLON SUIT.
Built to be faster, more advanced and more comfortable than any other suit. Across all three disciplines:
Superior hydro- and aerodynamic performance with maximum breathability. Dries in 3 minutes (compared to 10-19 minutes for other fabrics)
WIND TUNNEL TEST WINNER
"The numbers were so extraordinary that we first doubted our measurements and repeated them several times. Fe226 won the test by a margin of nine watts on the runner-up."
"RennRad" magazine about the AeroForce
4-way stretch for extraordinary freedom of movement, muscle support and energy return from snap-back effect.
Our 2019 version of the AeroForce Suit won by a 9 watts margin to the next best in a large wind-tunnel test conducted by RennRad against 13 other TT and triathlon suits from the fastest brands in the world. The editor said: “At first, we didn’t believe the test results, so we had to do them all again. They turned out to be correct”.
And mind you: While developing the Fe226 AeroForce suit we didn’t only think about aerodynamics. Our AeroForce suit is as fast as a swimskin in the water and supports your posture on the run, when you start getting tired.
All our super-fast AeroForce items are made from the very best fabric on the market today and feature:
AERO- AND HYDRODYNAMICS
Based on swimskin technology, this revolutionary fabric has demonstrated superior hydro- and aero-dynamic performance in numerous tests. This performance stems from the fact that the fabric has maximum breathability in air, yet allows water and air to slide off without penetrating the fibers.
With unparalleled elasticity this fabric creates an extraordinary second skin effect. The fabric offers over 20% more extension than comparable stretch materials - effortless, even when stretched heavily out of shape.
Normal compression fabrics offer muscle support and better blood flow, but inhibit movement, thereby creating extra fatigue. The AeroForce™ fabric has effortless, 4-way stretch offering you an extraordinary freedom of movement, outstanding muscle support and energy return from the fabric’s snap-back effect.
Based on Aquatech technology, AeroForce™ offers a 35% weight saving compared to widespread dry fabrics with comparable opacity. This weight saving increases substantially when wet, i.e. both in water and when you sweat during the race.
MESH PANEL ON BACK
The mesh panel along the spine allows heat to dissipate during cycling and running. Meanwhile, the super-fine, yet tight-knitted mesh ensures maximum aero-dynamics along the spine.
CORE TEMPERATURE REGULATION
Most tri suits offer wicking to keep you dry. However, sweat regulates your core temperature, so extensive wicking can create over-heating. AeroForce™ will wick the sweat to the outer surface to keep you dry, whilst still cooling your skin. Further, AeroForce™ has been treated with ColdBlack to strengthen the cooling features.
The incomparable structure of this fabric is tested to dry in 3 minutes compared to 10-17 minutes for knitted fabrics (Standard NF G07-166). You're practically dry when you step out of the water!
LASER-CUT SIDE VENTILATION
The laser-cut ventilation holes ensure maximum aero-dynamics and breathability at the same time. The AeroForce™ fabric’s body-shaping feature is key to your aerodynamics, so by laser-cutting ventilation, your aerodynamics are intact.
Internally mounted gel pockets, easily accessible to help you stay hydrated without disturbing your flow. Bonded edges to prevent chafing.
Easily accessible, spacious back pocket for nutrition or an extra tube.
The EIT chamois is specifically constructed for triathletes and timetrialists, offering performance and comfort across all three disciplines. The high density foam provides superb protection with a slim profile. The all-way stretch fabric guarantees total freedom of movement and excellent fit. The perforated foam ensures maximum breathability and fast dry.
The EIT TRI COMP of the AeroForce MK II has been developed and placed together with gebioMized to fit perfectly with an aggressive, aero-dynamic position on both split saddles and normal tri saddles. A special multi-density insert is located in the perineal zone towards the nose of the saddle, where pressure peaks occur due to the typical low, aerodynamic tri position. The combination of perforated foams and plain soft wings provide superior elasticity in the inner leg area, maximum breathability and quick dry properties.
Long front zipper makes it easy to get the suit on and off, and allows easy cooling on the run. Bonded, double-layered zip placket and –guard protects skin from chafing.
Seamless (bonded) hems, neck, edges and pockets prevents chafing while optimizing aerodynamics. Bonded “modesty panel” on front and back prevents see-through tights.COLDBLACK
ColdBlack keeps body temperature regulated. It reflects sunlight and even if all AeroForce fabrics are black, they react as if they were white.
UVA AND UVB PROTECTION
The AeroForce™ fabric has demonstrated a protection figure of +700 UPF, which easily satisfies the highest protection level of 50+. Please, apply waterproof and reef friendly sunscreen where the mesh panel on the back is located and also under the laser cut wventilation holes to make sure, you won't get burned!
This fabric's durability has been tested using the Martindale Abrasion Resistance Test and the result was remarkable: After 50,000 cycles this fabric had suffered no wear and tear. And even if we don't recommend using it for indoor swimming, you can in fact use it in chlorine. It has been tested to lose only 17% of is elasticity after 60 hours of indoor swimming.
The fabric has been treated with anti-bacterial to keep your product odor-free
