Q36.5’s DragZero, Q36.5’s 200g skinsuit best suited to traditional time trailing pursuits, is a vision of what the future (the “fourth generation”1) of cycling skinsuits might be.
Like with all Q36.5 garments, this “vision of the future” has been achieved through the development of a series of proprietary fabrics which, in this case, not only produce a highly sophisticated aerodynamic body mapping (the area of excellence of the “third generation” of cycling skinsuits currently available on the market) but at the same time operate as ergogenic aids guaranteeing that the skinsuit’s aerodynamics don’t just excel in the theoretical arena of the windtunnel (which cannot account for any number of variables, from the change which moisture will make to the surface of the fabric, or the comfort of the rider after a certain amout of kilometers and so on) but also in the complex reality of high intensity racing. Accordingly the DragZero feels di erent to any other skinsuit currently available on the market.
1 The original objective of the first skinsuits to be used in the pro peloton in the mid-1980s, themselves inspired by the new forms of racing clothing that the development of synthetic bers had permitted in the world of downhill skiing, was to take advantage of newly invented synthetics such as lycra to produce an extremely tight fitting piece of clothing which would greatly improve aerodynamics. The second generation of skinsuits improved paneling and placement of seams for increased “smoothness”, whilst the third, most recent generation, developed the idea of an “aerodynamic body mapping”, using sophisticated wind tunnel testing to strategically employ different textures of fabric in different parts of the body in order to minimize drag.
