Aplinestar, Dainese, Cortech and Spidi are the few of the best options available for the motorcycle racing suits but they look quiet expensive one. I have seen that AXO. AGV and REV'IT! are the further options with the medium price, but i have found that all of them have injection molded plastic shell armors padded with double density foam and nothing looks special in these suits. I am just looking to buy a new racing suit any suggestion out there with better price and same attributes like these suits have.

You'll just have to shop around but get a name brand quality suit, it's your hide your protecting after all.


I found the two I use on sale in the winter months, this should be a good time to search around and maybe even pick up a close out item. Problem is trying to find one in your size depending on whether you are a common size.

IF you're going to get a full suit, get one custom made. You'll be spending similar money to off the rack regardless, but the fit is naturally unmatched...

Off the rack Hugo Boss suit vs bespoke tailored... I know which way I'll go... :D

My suit for racing at Bonneville had to be custom made. I used Syed Leathers out of Florida to make them. They did pretty well and the colors were great. I had to have a local person tweak them a bit, but overall very good. Think they cost about $1000. I am 6'4" and weigh 230, so off the shelf was a problem for me especially with 37" sleeves. Yes, I do block a lot of wind and that's why I can't race the smaller bikes.

I don't think there is anywhere near me to get one custom made, plus I'm not sure if they use the materials I want, so I guess off the rack for me, which really isn't bad.been lookin at dainese and astar but I'm leaning toward astar. I have a similar build to what the suit was designed for so I'm hoping it'll fit real nice. In an earlier post I discussed how I bought a jacket that I intended to wear heavy clothing under, well here in New England it went from summer to winter,. Well since I bought it a little big the darn thing literally sucks me off the back of the bike, it's insane, hit 100 it starts to pull on me but by 130 I can barely hang on.. That's not exactly light speed so I need to remedy this. That jacket is good for cold weather when I can wear some layers to fill it up a bit.. I plan to buy this one, a bit pricey but it's top of the line. It replaced the race replica and it's like 800 cheaper or something like that

Custom suits are a nice way to go but if you want one the best "off the rack" suits on the market today the Alpinestars GP Tech leather suit is the way to go.
I was thinking yeah that's what I was saying but I realized I forgot to actually mention the gp tech I just put the stupid link. But this gentlemen is correct its the best by far imo. I think the only thing it needs upgraded is the chest and back armor, the rest is good. The key to it is the kangaroo leather. It's lighter, stronger, deals with rain better, cooler and it helps to wick sweat away really good. I think if it was made custom it would basically be what pros wear I think..
