Optimal aerodynamics and reduced drag is one of the most sought after features of competitive sportswear. Runners wear skintight suits instead of regular jerseys and clothing that, to use seem snug and form-hugging, but to them seem billowy and sail-like.
If you thought about it logically, since durable, as-thin-as-possible material is the goal, it was only a matter of time until one skin-tight accessory lent technology to another. Now, Ansell, the maker of SKYN condoms is testing out athletic wear made from "the same revolutionary material that lets you feel everything."
In the conceptual product's video accompanying a release, designer Pauline Van Dongen created a suit "to minimize body limitation and give extra airtime to the long jump athlete." The design features small flaps that catch air after the jumper's launch to give him an iota longer of air time.
