Aeroforce-X

Zone3 have collaborated with Aero specialist NoPinz to develop the world’s fastest tri suit. Utilising facilities at the Boardman performance centre and Aerocoach (our aerodynamic partner) we have performed extensive fabric, pattern layout and competitor testing to help us produce the fastest possible bike time, without sacrificing swim and run comfort.

The world’s fastest aero tri suit


We are all looking for extra speed – once you've conquered the finish, triathlon is all about getting there faster. It is that notion that gave birth to our new Aeroforce-X range.

LOWEST DRAG LOWEST DRAG

LOWEST DRAG on test

The graph shows the amount of drag created by the Aeroforce-X compared to other leading trisuits. Data is aggregated from tests performed at four speeds (30, 35, 40 & 45kph) by two different sized riders at the Boardman Performance Centre wind tunnel, with normalised data compared at Derby velodrome. Tests were independently carried out by Aerocoach.

Some suits had large variability at different speeds, whereas the variability in the Zone3 Aeroforce-X suit was less than 50% of its closest competitor, making it the most consistent suit on test.

SCIENTIFIC AERO Development testing

Testing started and finished in the wind-tunnel. Firstly, testing
the fabrics at different speeds and on different locations on the body. This data was then taken into the prototype design stages.

Feedback on the velodrome and in races was used to further
optimise the suit design over several months. Different shapes of athletes and a combination of track and wind tunnel meant that we could find the best real-world averages. We then went back to the wind tunnel for more testing and here the slightest of tweaks were made to find those marginal gains.

Five Unique Fabrics

Over 30 fabrics were developed and tested to make the world’s fastest Aero suit. Five unique fabrics from Italy and France make up each suit in order to find the perfect balance between speed, breathability, comfort, coverage and overall performance.

The ultra-lightweight breathable fabrics feel superior against the skin and will ensure you are dry within minutes of the bike leg.
The core body panel incorporates ColdBlack technology across the core to reduce infrared absorption and help regulate body temperature.

Aeroforce-X

Located on the sleeve panels, this is a unique dimple fabric
based on golf ball technology and is located in the key areas to help minimise drag and increase speed by creating a thin turbulent boundary layer of air that clings to the suit’s surface.

This allows the air to smoothly follow the contours of the body, thereby decreasing the size of the wake – slicing through
the air faster and more efficiently. It also includes a full water repellent nano coating.

AERO-STRIPE AERO-STRIPE

AERO-STRIPE

Similar to the Aeroforce-X fabric this fabric is located on the underarm and lat panels and was tested against several other similar materials in this location to ensure it was the most aerodynamic.

Aeroforce Aeroforce

Aeroforce Soft-Touch

A premium and technically advanced material is used on the
front body which offers great coverage whilst having an ‘invisible’ feel. The material is light, breathable and offers 360 degree stretch. Extremely quick drying and features a high-tech water repellent nano coating to reduce drag resistance in and out of the water.

Airflo Airflo

Airflo

An extremely lightweight, breathable and wicking material is
located on the back panel for optimum temperature control.

Premium Premium

Premium Fit

A smooth and soft fabric that feels fantastic against the skin, providing coverage, core muscle support and graduated compression on the legs.
