The Impsport T3 Suit Collection comprises of a race suit for sprinting in an upright position and a TT suit for time trials or pursuits in a low-pro position. We’ve employed the latest in state of the art garment technologies for both garments, combined with wind tunnel tested fabrics and patterns to create the fastest suits available in the UK custom market

A DEFINING ERA OF RACESUITS

22 Olympic Gold Medals

Impsport have manufactured the suits used by the Great Britain Cycling Team in the last 3 Olympic Summer Games, winning a total of 22 gold medals. We are custom fitting and manufacturing T3 Suits for Tokyo 2021.

We’ve been helping British athletes achieve world class cycling status since the late 1970’s and that trust, experience and knowledge is harnessed today in the latest generation of Impsport custom garments. 

INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL ADVANCES

Research & development

Boardman Performance Centre – Independent Wind Tunnel Testing

 

'I was the test rider for the Impsport T3 Suit performance analytics which involved testing a range of well known brands and models at 10, 15 and 20 mph (36, 54, 72 kph) respectively.

It was clear that the Impsport T3.1 Racesuit and T3 TT Suit were the two fastest suits across all speeds tested. Upon further analysing the data, it showed that the suit had drastically lowered my overall CdA.

I was keen to get one of these suits for myself.'

AERODYNAMIC DETAIL

Specialist aero fabrics

The fabrics utilised for the T3.1 Racesuit and T3 TT Suit have been especially selected for their streamline properties and benefit from air flow analytics during the garment pattern production.

 

● Specialist channelled fabrics are used in high drag areas to enhance the shape of the air around the rider and increase streamline speed.

● Air flow analytics and wind tunnel testing are used throughout the pattern development to optimise seam placement.

● Smoothing textured fabrics trip air effectively from the torso, legs and flanks whilst holding closer to the body for an improved garment fit.

SPEED ENHANCEMENTS

Integrated number pocket

Single or double integrated race number pockets are included as standard providing optimum streamline shape whilst protecting your suit from pin damage.

 

● The Impsport T3.1 Racesuit is fitted with our new single or double race number pocket - optimally placed on the garment to meet race specifications whilst improving drag reduction.

● The Impsport T3 TT Suit is fitted with our unique single race number pocket. The garment seams have been placed specifically to improve streamline speed in the time trial position.

FASTEST CUSTOM SUITS

Why go slower...when you can go faster?

The aerodynamic performance of clothing, headwear and riding position account for about 80% of effectible drag, only 20% is the bike itself. Focusing on maintaining a good riding position and wearing a low surface drag skinsuit with optimum aerodynamic stability is key to reducing air turbulence and overall increasing speed on the bike.

The Impsport T3 Suit range comprises of the latest in state-of-the-art garment technologies to create the fastest suits available in the UK custom market, saving 9.2 Watts compared to the baseline. In wind tunnel test conditions at 40km/h the Impsport T3.1 Racesuit was faster than the current Team GB suit.
