Sizing of Race Suits

Speed suits fit by our size charts will initially be quite snug and require assistance stretching over the shoulders. However, the fabric "relaxes" after several uses to conform comfortably to your body. A new suit sized for initial comfort will stretch out and become oversized after the "break-in" period.

Technical Info:

Race Suit Fabric

These highly elastic knit fabrics are not as abrasion resistant as woven fabrics. Contact with abrasive surfaces such as Velcro should be avoided. Prints on these fabrics are usually done on a white base and only penetrate the surface of the material. Some of the underlying white may show through areas of stretch. "Wear and Tear" is normal in stretch fabrics and may include pilling, cuts from ski/snowboard edges, and fabric burns from hitting gates at high speeds.

FIS Approved Race Suits

FIS specs for DH, SG and GS race suits is based on safety considerations and competitive equality. Suits can't be plastic and must have a minimum porosity to assist in slowing a fall.

National associations normally do the testing. USSA has a machine to test suits and you may send your suit to them for FIS approval. They attach a little metal tag called a "plomb" on the pant leg when the suit meets approval.
