HUUB’s first commercially available speedsuit for track and time trial cycling is named 4zero9 after Jon Archibald’s 4:09 minute individual pursuit record. Archibald is part of the HUUB Wattbike Test Team, which has been making waves in the track cycling world since forming in October 2018.
Now available for age group athletes to purchase, HUUB notes that its 4zero9 cycling speedsuit utilises ‘state of the art garment technologies combined with wind tunnel tested fabrics and patterns’. These help to ‘save both watts and time due to fabric placements and a greater understanding of airflow and tripping the air.’
The 4zero9 has been developed by HUUB with its ‘Fellowship of Speed’ mantra a key component running through the product development process.
- Moisture-wicking fabrics

HUUB notes that its Fellowship of Speed is ‘working around the clock to ensure that all gear performs at levels that no one else can touch.’ The brand’s Fellowship of Speed is working on optimising tri suits, bibs, jerseys, aero socks and a ‘number of yet-to-be-announced, classified goodies’.
According to the company, these deliver a ‘huge competitive advantage on any bike, across a wide range of speeds and conditions – whether it’s triathlon, track, road or TT.’
