Fabien Caron, a reknown French skater, edited a new downhill video to compare performances with casual wear (jean and tee-shirt) and skinsuit. This video was realised on October 23, 2011 in Chaville (France, 92) in the most suitable slope of « île-de-France » in order to reach 100 km/h. Slope characterics: 14%, 700 meters of length.
"I would explain the difference between a descender dressed « normaly » (Jean's and tee-shirt) and a descender dressed with a bodysuit. So, in first time, normally dressed we have made 3 downhill tests with the average of 2 GPS.In second time, bodysuit dressed we have made 3 another downhill tests with the same GPS, as a result we have find a difference between the tests of 10 km/h on 700 meters."
