The ultimate in aerodynamics, comfort and rider connectivity: Race ULTRA+ utilises groundbreaking innovative technologies to redefine performance cycling apparel. The Race ULTRA+ jersey utilises Italian made Kinetech™ DragZero 3D structured fabrics in key areas to significantly improve aerodynamics of the rider.
By positioning this textured surface material (much like the surface of a golf ball) in the areas of highest resistance (arms and shoulders of the rider), air turbulence is created on the surface of the material resulting in delamination of the air flow. Race ULTRA+ keeps this airflow attached to the body for longer, a smaller vortex is left behind the rider. A smaller Vortex means less drag, and a more aerodynamic rider.
- Engineered 3D structured surface within Kinetech™ DragZero fabric through the point of delamination of the air flow (sleeves and shoulders)
- Ultra smooth fabric surface in the section of the garment where the air has to glide better (back)
- Fabrics are stretchable along with having enhanced compression in order to reduce the wrinkles on garments and to assure no flapping, even at high speeds
- A high return force, or modulus of elasticity score, with resulting greater muscle compression and less muscle fibre vibration and hence reduced muscle fatigue
- Other characteristics such as comfort, breathability and thermal regulation have been optimised for high performance and race environments
- Greater UV protection and advanced moisture management
