Suits

In the market for suit and trying to decide which way I want to go. I have a feeling I'm going to get a lot of people saying go for the 1 piece but the thought of being able to take off the jacket as opposed to letting it hang sounds really appealing. Im mostly in the canyons but wan to start hitting the track more. Thoughts?

I went with a 1pc just bc its a lot more comfy. Either way a suit is great to have. Just look around on riders discount and ask them about any you have your eye set on.

Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads

Re: Suits

1 Piece ftw. If you're track only that is. I can see if you're in the canyons, taking off the jacket at a rest stop might be nice.

But at the track you learn to walk around with your arms hooked around the sleeves. It doesn't look weird cause everyone does it lol.

Re: Suits

1 PC for sure if it was track only. 2 piece may be your best option since you are canyon carving and occasional track days.

Re: Suits

When we had our suits made we gave the guy our back protectors to sew in...makes a world of difference when you want to just wear the bottom half.

Here is my husband in his suit. The back protector keeps the top half stiff so it does not flop around.

Not sure if people ever have that done with off the rack suits but I would recommend looking into it. It makes wearing a one piece on the streets not that bad.

OR you can go the alternative route and get suspenders to hold the top half up when you only want to take the top half down.

1 piece.

I see a lot of people using bungee cords or what have you, to keep the think from sagging everywhere when it's off. I personally just leave it on all day. Doesn't bother me much, I run on a different temp.

Re: Suits

1 piece.... I found a used Spid T1 Wind Pro and got it for 1/2 of what it's worth (only tried on in the dressing room).

I've crashed in it 5-6 times (lol... can't be sure) and I've only had to reinforce some stitching on the sleeve once. Never ripped or tore.

Re: Suits

Get a one-piece and use a bungee cord as a belt to keep it from flopping around. Win.

Re: Suits

I'd recommend Teknic! Love mine! Fits really well, and at the price it's unbeatable. I went with the new 2012 Chicane suit! Ton of upgrades and a higher end, budget minded suit for sure! Check them out! I'll attach a few pics of it! It has a ton of perf, and breathes really well! That's my recommendation for someone looking for a suit... A lot more affordable then a lot of suits out there...

It showed up about 45 mins before I left for the track... So I had to try it on there, and their sizing recommendation fit perfectly with my Dianese back protector...
