Thanks to the march of technology, skinsuits are no longer just used it crits and time trials, they are becoming more commonplace in road races as well. Assos, always up for a challenge, now offers a one-piece suit that is its fastest ever, the Lehoudini RS Aero Roadsuit S9. Constructed with a keen eye towards optimized patterning and textile engineering, you'll be shaving time everywhere on your ride.

Likewise, it has pockets and sleeves constructed of Push Pull warp-knit textile with 50+ UPF protection. This fine gauge kit is highly breathable, has bi-stretch properties, and is quick drying and very comfortable. Since it's so stretchy, it's excellent in these locations where you need some movement and it accommodates varying arm sizes and contents in the pockets. However, if it made the whole suit of out this, it would be too stretchy so instead, it employs Type. 441, a patented 40-gauge warp knit developed specifically for compres...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
