Product highlight

Winter is here and it is time to layer up! Skinfit started 15 years ago with the Klima baselayer and to this day it is the most functional baselayer available.

Our collection of sports underwear is knitted with the functional microfine "Isofil" fiber. This fiber absorbs humidity from the body and quickly distributes it over a large surface (with a short-sleeve shirt, for example, over 32 square meters). Thus, the perspiration evaporates quickly or is transferred to the next clothing layer. The result: in spite of exertion, you feel dry. In the cold, on the other hand, Skinfit Klima has a warming effect due to the large amount of air captured in the fiber. The effect is similar to that of thermostatic control: When you are overheated, Skinfit Klima helps your body stay cool. In cold temperatures the garments provide protection with their extraordinary insulation properties.

Klima features:

Moisture wicking and evaporation
Good insulating properties (for optimum microclimate)
Easy care (wash at 95 C even for colored garments)
Quick drying
Odor resistant

available in S/S, L/S, and Sleeveless

--Pro, Brian Lavelle, all smiles in an all-white Skinfit kit!

Kona was a big day (week) for Skinfit. Our brand was represented by athletes from around the world. At kona this year, it was particularly evident that Skinfit is truly a global brand and the decision to expand to the states is a smart one.
We (as in those that operate the company)have know for a long time that Skinfit is the premier sports apparel brand because of its superior functionality and comfort but to see so many other people supporting the brand at the biggest triathlon event in the world was both impressive and inspiring.

--Matt Hoover, season 2 Biggest Loser winner, rocked Skinfit all day! He loves our gear!

We are still in the beginning stages here in the U.S. but everyday we are growing and finding ways to get this incredible brand into the hands of outdoor enthusiasts. In fact, our biggest project right now is getting our NEW website up and running. We are so excited about is going to be a great site designed by Sarah Hudson at HuddyDesign. It will be user friendly and really showcase everything we have to offer.

So, congrats to all the Skinfit athletes that raced in Kona. We are proud of all of you...keep living the Skinfit lifestyle!

Skinfit USA Racing Team

The Skinfit USA Racing Team has been growing over the past 6 months. It has been a fun project for us and we are excited to see it evolve. We started to build the team up in Northern California and we have recently started to grow the team down in Southern California (San Diego specifically).
Our goal in creating the team is to get like-minded, fun, and active people together that love Skinfit and are willing to help us spread the Skinfit love. Team members obviously get great deals on Skinfit products and have opportunities to secure some big discounts on other products like Xterra wetsuits and Rudy Project helmets and sunglasses. Most importantly though, we want a core group of athletes that have a true passion for the outdoors and love life, which is at the core of living the Skinfit lifestyle.
So, thanks to all of our current team members...we love having you in the family and appreciate all that you do to help us. Our team will continue to grow so let us know if you would like to be a part of our adventures! You can email us at

Have fun out there!

Splash-and-Dash and San Jose International

On the local front, the first event of the Skinfit Splash-and-Dash Series up in Northern California was a huge success. Athletes knocked out a 1500 meter swim and a 5k run. Skinfit was in FULL-EFFECT that night and we can't thank everyone enough for their support at this event!

Product highlight: Tri Shorts 5504 and 5501

Our tri shorts are flying off the shelves for good reason. They are very comfortable, contour to your body, dry quickly, have tan anti-bacterial pad to keep you comfortable on the bike and the run, have a "no-bounce" pocket in the back, and they are very durable. Many of our customers claim the skinfit tri shorts are the most comfortable shorts they have ever worn and well worth the $89!
They come in two styles: The 5504 has a reflective "skinfit" print down the sidepanel and the 5501 maintains a more classic look with a smaller skinfit logo placed on the bottom of the shorts (See images below). The 5504 also comes in all-white for all of you heading to Kona, any other hot races, or if you just want to make a statement!

You can order these shorts through our webshop or by emailing us directly at
The race season is in full-effect so make sure to get your orders in quickly! Have a good week everyone and keep living the Skinfit Lifestyle!

Last weekend....

Last weekend proved to be quite a success for Skinfit. We were up at Wildflower making sales, meeting people, and generally having a good time bringing our brand to the triathlon community. Plus, we got to support a great cause, Jenny's Light, which is a charity that was created by Becky Lavelle.

--Christine and Lesley, two Skinfit pros, in speedsuits at the Xterra West Cup

On the racing side of things we had two Skinfit athletes podium at the first Xterra Cup race of the series in Las Vegas. Lesley Paterson was 3rd and Christine Jeffrey was 5th...congrats ladies!

--Skinfit represented on the pro podium...look left

A host of other Skinfit loyalists/teams raced up at Wildflower and did very Ascent based up in Los Gatos, Monterey Bay Multisport, and The Stanford Triathlon Team had a great showing for Skinfit.
We can't thank our athletes enough for their support and hard work. We look forward to future events and more stellar results.

Keep living the Skinfit lifestyle!

Team Skinfit in full-effect this weekend (and Monday)...

Team Skinfit was racing like crazy this weekend up at Sea Otter, at the Boston Marathon, and at collegiate nationals! The short of it is that Skinfit was well represented by James Walsh, Trevor Glavin, Reto Waeffler and the Stanford Triathlon Team. Everyone had solid races and proved that the Skinfit lifestyle is alive and kicking!

Trevor did three races at Sea Otter...the crit, circuit race, and cross-country. The road races were purely training and they proved to be nice and hard, which was what he was looking for. The cross-country race was brutal (38 miles, nearly 3 hrs, and HOT!) He managed 6th place in a tough field. James did the cross-country as well and got 10th. Not bad getting two Skinfit riders in the top 10 at a race as big as Sea Otter. The effects of the hard race are still being felt for sure!!!

Reto knocked out the Boston Marathon. He was on goal pace (2:38) until about mile 21 and had to slow a bit over the final 5 miles but still ran 2:47. Not bad considering it is only his second marathon and he only trained for 12 weeks. Something tells me he will crack 2:40 no problem on the next go =)

The Stanford Triathlon Team was in Texas racing 2009 collegiate nationals. The team placed 9th in the nation! Incredibly, five out of eight athletes that scored in the team competition are in their first triathlon season, which shows a lot of promise for the future. Plus, they all had fun and sported the skinfit aero shirts all weekend from the event, to awards, to the post race grub at Rudy's BBQ!
Here is a link to results.

So, some very solid results over the past few days! There is plenty more racing to come this season so stay tuned.

Keep living the Skinfit lifestyle!
