FIS Race Suit Rules

Conform to FIS Label

Historically it 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.

ALL suits must now 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 SPECIFICATIONS FOR ALPINE COMPETITION EQUIPMENT for full details.

Note: FIS Race Suit Rules only apply to U19 Athletes (16 years of age) and up. Required for World Cup, Europa Cup, World Junior Championships, and NorAm Series. NOT required for Entry League FIS races or U-FIS (Junior) races.

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.

NexGen is a highly durable three layer polyester fabric that has our highest amount of stretch to make it comfortable and fit even better. Nexgen passes the FIS required 30ml air porosity requirements precisely making it faster than most other suits. The FIS required mark is placed on the back left leg to insure it’s legality. Patterns for every size have been designed to insure the best possible fit for the widest range of athlete.
