We have begun an exciting new venture to design the fastest cycling skinsuit on the planet, building upon our experience from the previous three Olympic campaigns.
In collaboration with Cranfield University in the form of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), we are launching a 3 year R&D programme to involve the development of a new onsite wind tunnel with bespoke material testing capabilities, creating an extensive information database to help drive the development of the skinsuit. The programme will be driven by a new member of our team, Victoria Sauven who has just graduated from Bath University with a Masters degree in Aerospace Engineering, who will be working full time on the project. This will be combined with the existing experience from within TotalSim and Dr. Nicholas Lawson and Dr. Jim Gautrey from Cranfield University.
Our unique suits will be tailored to each individual, using aerodynamically engineered materials to reduce drag on the rider and improve athlete performance.
The next generation of aerodynamic, high performance skinsuit will be ready for showcasing at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, for teams that want to push the boundaries of sports technology.
In time we are hoping to develop a new business purely devoted to high performance sports engineering. Watch this space…
