Endura wins award for the world’s fastest time-trial suit

The Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team would like to congratulate apparel partner Endura for winning an Endura Award for its D2Z® Encapsulator Suit™, the world’s fastest time-trial suit.

The suit was developed by Endura and Drag2Zero in the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 wind tunnel and has supported Cervélo Bigla to 10 podiums in the time trial and team time trial disciplines this season.

“We adopted a fresh perspective and exploited a technology that none of our competitors was using,” explains Jim McFarlane, Founder and Managing Director of Endura. “The results have been phenomenal.

“We’re extremely happy to have gained this recognition for work that has been ongoing for several years. A great deal of effort has been made by a wide group of staff in the design, development and production teams at our headquarters in Livingston, Scotland, and by Drag2Zero’s Simon Smart and his team of aerodynamics experts in Brackley, as well as by our roster of world class athletes.”

To celebrate the award, enjoy our best selection of photos of the time-trial suit in action this season.
