Manufacturing of Bobsleigh Clothing
The manufactures used lycra, poly-cotton, and other recycled skin-friendly blends of fabric. All suites come with silver-ion tech that acts as an anti-odour causing element and has layers to decrease fiction. They have front or back zip made of YKK zips or plastics that can be customised. Another aspect of the suit that can be customised is the padding on the areas like the gusset, knee, and elbow. The suit has silicone grip trims, ankle stirrups, cuff thumbholes, and hood and wrist loops.
