All of the Bioracer Speedwear Concept suits for the 2018 World Championships are customised and tailored in sizing and shape for each individual athlete.
Speaking to Cyclingnews, Bioracer's Liaison Officer Jon Wiggins explained the speed suits further: "The panels [on the speed suits] are contoured to the body and are made of a combination of New Monica and Stripe Aero fabric.
"The main fabric has been slightly modified with Speedsilk, a fabric technology that improves the aerodynamics of regular Lycra fabric. The sleeves have new and improved aerodynamics, the leg grippers are now woven into the fabric and zips are on the back."
Bioracer is based in the east of Belgium, near the homes of Ridley Bikes and Lazer Helmets.
The Flanders Bike Valley Wind Tunnel is used and funded by the three companies, alongside investment from the Belgian government and the European Union.
"All our developments are done with our in-house designers," Wiggins added. "We obviously do a lot of work in our wind tunnel and our protolab is full time testing and developing the latest generation to support the athletes."
The new speed suits also have a new Bioracer Smooth Evapor seat pad, a 3D webbing that offers greater support with less density than a traditional pad.
Ellen Van Dijk (Netherlands) and Laurens De Plus (Belgium) each wore suits with the Evapor pad on the outside of the speed suit. Offering more grip and improving stability while in a time trial position.
The multi-layer pad has a smooth top layer, two foam layers and an Evapor layer, which offers an anatomic shape without the use of glue or thermoforming and available in male- and female-specific shaped pads.
The pad is also ergonomically shaped, wicks moisture, anti-bacterial and has size-specific alignment.
