Sizing of Race Suits
Speed suits fit by our size charts will initially be quite snug and require assistance stretching over the shoulders. However, the fabric "relaxes" after several uses to conform comfortably to your body. A new suit sized for initial comfort will stretch out and become oversized after the "break-in" period.
Race Suit Fabric
These highly elastic knit fabrics are not as abrasion resistant as woven fabrics. Contact with abrasive surfaces such as Velcro should be avoided. Prints on these fabrics are usually done on a white base and only penetrate the surface of the material. Some of the underlying white may show through areas of stretch. "Wear and Tear" is normal in stretch fabrics and may include pilling, cuts from ski/snowboard edges, and fabric burns from hitting gates at high speeds.
FIS Race Suit Rules
Customarily is has been the responsibility of the athlete to send their race suit to a National Association to test for porosity and FIS compliance. A little metal tag called a “plomb” was attached to the leg of the suit after passing the test. A new marking method will now be used in the form of a printed logo on the back of the leg of approved suits.
Beginning this 2018-19 FIS race season ALL suits must have a FIS logo printed on the back of the left leg. Race suits with a plomb will no longer be acceptable at FIS races. See FIS SPECIFICATIONS FOR COMPETITION EQUIPMENT AND COMMERCIAL MARKINGS for full details.
Note: FIS Race Suit Rules only apply to U19 Athletes (16 years of age) and up competing in NorAm, Europa Cup, World Junior Championships and World Cup races. FIS logos are not required for National FIS or ENL races.
