Re: Teknic-Xcelerator One Piece Suit

I own one. It's a great suit. Lowsided about 45mph on the track and it held up real well. Only complaint is I think the pucks sit a little lower than others.

Either way, badass suit! Can't wait for mine to get here and wear it around all day tomorrow!

Re: Teknic-Xcelerator One Piece Suit

I have the violator and am extremely happy with it. Never crashed in any leathers so cant comment on how well it holds up, but if the AMA champion wears it, I can too

Let me know how it fits/feels when you get it I might as well save me some couple hundred dollars and put it towards side vertigo boots

Sure thing... I'll post up tomorrow! You'll have to shop around for places that have the older suit in stock in your size and see if you CAN get it cheaper. Where I got mine they only have 46's left... Which you said you couldn't fit into. But I've got no probs with buying something that's an older model if it's still brand new, which it is... and it's one hell of a suit! Definitely an upgrade from my Chicane, which was still a really nice suit at it's price point...

I'm sure you'll find it somewhere, between sportbiketrackgear, ridersdiscount, and other various vendor/sites you'll find it somewhere. I'll let you know tomorrow how mine is. I'm sure it'll fit just as well as my Chicane suit, which for my odd build, fit quite well...
