When you want to ride fast, the Sportful Bomber Skin Suit is the ultimate in speed-focused cycling performance. It also now features Hardcord technology for road-rash crash protection.
Created in conjunction with Team Bora Hansgrohe and Peter Sagan the Bomber Suit uses lightweight and smooth fabrics, ergonomically tailored to deliver reduced drag at higher speeds. The seamless one-piece upper fits you like a second skin and while off the bike, it may feel too tight and restrictive, once up to speed it all makes perfect sense. Aero gains aren't just from the close fit, fewer seams have been used in order to minimise drag. This seamless design extends to the leg grippers too, giving a smooth transition from suit to skin, while integrated silicone grippers prevent the suit from riding up.
The sleeves are made from a lightweight mesh, ensuring you feel a cooling breeze when you build up body-heat. Meanwhile, the lower body benefits from Sportful’s Hardcord technology. This abrasion-resistant material provides protection in a crash, not only reducing road rash but also lessening the chance of your favourite race-suit being ripped apart.
Practical details also matter when it comes to racing. You'll be pleased to see a mesh pocket to slip in your race number - no more ruining your race fit and suit with safety pins. A fully opening front zipper also makes it easier to slip this streamlined suit on and off.
Crashing is no fun. And to add to the pain you’ll see your best shorts ripped to shreds too. Hardcord aims to lessen the pain of crashing. Using CORDURA® fabric, this technology has been tried and tested to resist abrasions and tearing during a crash. Based on certified tests, Sportful shorts are the only ones to resist a 45 km/h crash. Faster just got safer too.
Total Comfort Pro Seat Pad
Inside the Suit is the TC Pro seat pad, Sportful’s ‘racing pad’. Sportful uses 15mm Urethane foam, making the pad suited to riders who want support but prefer a thinner feel. You get incredible comfort on the saddle but with a touch less bulk and added freedom for smooth and powerful pedalling. Perforations guarantee better ventilation and quick-drying performance. From intense interval session to all-day racing epics you'll enjoy support in all the right places.
The Sportful story began in 1946, when the Cremonese family opened a knitwear factory named Manifattura Valcismon. Over the years, production evolved toward the manufacture of high-quality underwear. The real turning point came in 1972, when Dr. Giordano Cremonese, who had taken over the management of the business from his parents, wanted to participate in the newly established Marcialonga cross-country ski race but did not have appropriate clothing. He decided to use the family business to produce the necessary apparel and what had begun as a personal need grew into an unprecedented success. This was the beginning of the Sportful brand. In 1985, seeing the great demand for technical cycling apparel and encouraged by the company's remarkable success in cross-country skiing, Sportful embarked on a new adventure - Cycling. It wasn’t long before they were involved at the highest level, equipping teams such as Alfa Lum, Ariostea and Mapei, the latter dominating the classics throughout the 90s. Some of their greatest achievements came when the Italian national team used Sportful apparel, with World Championship victories for Bettini, Cipollini and Ballan. The success continued with their Saxo Bank partnership, victories in all three grand tours, and multiple classics wins from the likes of Cancellara ,Contador and Sagan. Working with pro team athletes Sportful strives to make the best possible performance apparel for all conditions. Sportful is currently the official technical clothing partner Trek Segafredo and Drops Women's cycling team.
