Under Armour’s Mach 39 Speed Skating Suit may not have lived up to the fanfare, but the ideas are introduced to the world including two years of research and development. Though still too early to tell whether the suit failed or lack of on-ice testing accounted for the U.S. Speed Skating team resorting back to their World Cup suits, I will be interested to see if the technology finds its way into hang gliding. Certainly new speed sleeves would be easy enough. However, in a sport where milliseconds are less crucial perhaps dimples will only up the cute factor. Maybe I can request that my new harness be polka dotted.
