SANTINI REDUX FORTUNA SKINSUIT
When you need every aero advantage you can get, it’s time to think about a skinsuit—but not just any skinsuit. The Santini REDUX Fortuna is a road-specific skinsuit meant specifically for the demands of long road races, not just short time trials. The REDUX name comes from the goals for this skinsuit: to reduce weight and aero drag. Aero details abound, from thermo-sealed seams down to laser-cut, concealed jersey pockets that sit closer to the back to streamline airflow. $360; santinicycling.com
