The Race Suit project has its roots in the origins of Karpos. You could almost say that it was born with the brand. We spent more than two years working in close collaboration with the athletes from the Italian national team and the Army Sports Center to obtain the best-performing suit. Our research and development department created 11 prototypes before presenting the Karpos Race Suit to the public. The result is an extremely complex yet functional and practical one-of-a-kind product that’s breathable, lightweight, and warm. Made with Lycra® Power, which gives it elasticity and comfort, it has nonslip silicone inserts on the shoulders, while the back is in mesh to increase breathability. Two large mesh chest pockets allow for easy storage of skins. The front opening, between the top and the pants, makes the suit comfortable and easy to wear as well as allowing for greater capacity. An insert in windproof fabric is located on the front of the pants, while the leg bottom is reinforced with Cordura®. Another Cordura insert is located on the right side — a solution designed together with the athletes to prevent cuts in the suit from skis attached to the backpack. In short, this suit offers a collection of technical features that required years of research and experimentation to achieve unparalleled performance standards.
