For decades, athletes such as swimmers and cyclists have been shaving to enhance both performance and comfort. For some, though, the idea of using a razor on anything other than facial hair brings a little apprehension. But it turns out that shaving for sport is undeniably a win-win.
According to research last year by Specialized, you could save up to 82 seconds on a 40km cycle if you compete with hairless pins. Ten tests showed an average time saving of 70 seconds, which could be the difference between first and second place. So why not try it for yourself? You might find you’re a faster rider than you’ve given yourself credit for.
