Rohan Dennis won stage 1 of the 2015 Tour de France by 5 seconds or 0.3kph from Tony Martin.
Pearl Izumi and their Speed Shop had a lot to do with that. The Speed Shop is an in-house garment production facility at Pearl Izumi headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, created to make the world's fastest gear for top level athletes.
It is where Pearl Izumi can produce prototypes and pre-production pieces for testing & feedback. This means that any requested changes & revisions can be done quickly, then re-evaluated and refined before final production.
BMC have apparel for individual riders custom produced in the Pearl Izumi Speed Shop, including the Mach 5 Skinsuit worn by Rohan Dennis. On board his BMC Time Machine TM01 and wearing the Mach 5 Skinsuit, Dennis set a new Tour de France Individual Time Trial speed record.
