In competitive sports the design of equipment can play a vital role in performance levels. A slightly better aerodynamic line or lightweight material often provides the edge and percentage margin that makes the difference between winning and losing. New developments in equipment design can also enable all-ability access to a greater range of sports and leisure activities.
