Sky Ocean Rescue Froomey Speedsuit 2018

  • Description


    Exclusively on the Team Sky store and never seen retailed before is the race apparel 'Froomey Speedsuit'. The suit was designed for Chris & also used by Geraint, for the hot climbing stages of the Grand Tours. It is made up of the super lightweight and breathable, yet sun calming Climbers Jersey and the Inferno Bibshorts, both light weight items that come together to create this one-of-a-kind speedsuit. A collector's item that has never been seen on sale before!

    Team Sky joined the Sky Ocean Rescue journey by unveiling a new kit design for the recent Tour de France and this is your chance to own the same kit the riders wore at the race in July. 

    This is the Body Paint 4.2b Speedsuit Chris Froome and his seven team-mates wore at the TDF 2018! Castelli designed it specifically for fast speeds, near 60kph like the riders hit on the 35.5km course west of the centre.

    "We tried a lot of different things, testing hundreds of fabrics and shapes. We're not exactly sure why the Body Paint 4.2b Speedsuit is faster, but it is. We've called it Body Paint because it is pretty transparent and looks a lot like body painting. When the riders are going over 60K an hour, this is the better suit – the one you want.” Steve Smith, Brand Manager for Castelli said.
