THE FUTURE OF LONG-DISTANCE TRIATHLON
When we started developing the Viper Trisuit, we had one objective in mind: to make you faster on the bike.
BEHIND THE STORY: THE VIPER TRISUIT
That is why we started working on it from a World Champion TT skinsuit, the one Rohan Dennis used to win his gold medal at the 2019 UCI TT World Championships in Yorkshire. Santini athlete, Tim Reed, after seeing Rohan winning the World Champion title, decided to race in Kona with a prototype of the Viper because he wanted to have the best suit for the bike leg. After the race, we started working on a trisuit following his feedback. We made multiple prototypes, send them out to our pro triathletes to test, gathered their feedbacks and suggestions. After months of preparation and multiple tests we got to the final version.
A UNIQUE SUIT FOR UNIQUE HUMAN BEINGS
It is incredible how curating the smallest, apparently insignificant details, can mean the difference between a place on the podium or the disappointment of a defeat. The study of aerodynamics is fundamental in IM full distance and IM 70.3, and saving seconds in the bike leg is the key. The most innovative feature of the Viper is the external grip on the crotch area, that helps you maintain the position stable on the saddle while you push on the pedals.
GET TO KNOW THE VIPER
“A legendary suit already!! Fantastic fit, and just feels extremely fast. Love the grip for the saddle.”
Gustav Iden, IM 70.3 World Champion
“The suit fits well and designed for hot weather with some key fabrication on the sleeves for both aerodynamics and sun protection.”
Timothy O’donnell, IRONMAN Kona Vice World Champion
“I am so impressed with this trisuit on all levels from the comfort to the speed and it always helps if it looks great too!”
Emma Pallant, IM 70.3 Lanzarote Champion
“I think this really helps keep me in a good position so that I do not slide forward. It allows me to concentrate on pushing power and not readjusting my position during the ride.”
Ben Kanute, IM 70.3 Texas silver medallist
