TO ANSWER A REQUEST FROM AEROBATIC PILOTS, IN ASSOCIATION WITH THEM,
WE HAVE DEVELOPED A SPECIALIST SUIT.

 

Two years of work has been necessary to finalize the development of this suit, paying special attention to each and every detail required to optimize comfort and safety for aerobatic pilots.

With the Stand 21 "LOOPING 01 HSC" suit, you will be able to focus on optimum performance, in a made-to-measure suit with almost limitless cutomization options, which will help you to promote yourself and your sponsors.

Not only is this suit certified to demanding fire tests, it benefits from the latest evolution of the Heat Stress Control program.

WHAT IS THE HEAT STRESS CONTROL PROGRAM?

The concept was simple; the more comfortable a race car driver is with his safety gears, the safer he will be while increasing his racing performances.
The fight against heat stress started.
The "Heat Stress" scientific and medical research program initiated by Stand 21 in 2004 allowed a detailed data gathering related to heat stress, thus improved drastically the capabilities of Stand 21 products to manage the heat stress risk.
Our heat stress research program did clearly show by studying very closely the evolution of the core body temperature, that the risk is real for the human body if, perspiration evaporation was hindered by impermeable layers of fabric (underwear, suit...) this situation is still true, even running in an low temperature environment.
HEAT: The race driver performance’s worst enemy.
After the release of our heat stress program results, most of the participants in the motorsport became aware that the fireproof suit wasn’t only a fence against fire or an advertising billboard, because it contributes to properly ventilate their body it was a key ingredient in the overall performance of the race car driver.
Indeed, even in open cars, the racing driver's body temperature will rise gradually while
racing, especially as the air flows are generally optimized to cool down the machinery
and not the driver.
Many racing teams or federations have since conducted their own programs and their conclusions have largely corroborated those of the initial Stand 21 program: for a racing driver, as talented and well prepared as one can be and to complete a race safely with a constant level of performance, one needs highly technical very comfortable and very breathable equipment to retard as much as possible the arrival of physical and mental fatigue.
In recent years, Stand 21 went to confirm the results obtained in the laboratory in the track and with the best race teams in their fields (Corvette Racing, Porsche Motorsport, HSV, All German Motorsport, Alan Johnson Racing, etc.). All HSC suits impressed their users when tested because of their breathability and the significant gain continuous performance.
