What Type of Motorcycle Suits Are Best Suited For Track Days

One Piece Motorcycle SuitOK, you’re tempted. Everyone who is smart enough to own a motorcycle at one point does get tempted to find out just what the bike can do when ridden, well, when ridden with sheer abandonment. The primary point to always consider is that the actual realization of many fantasies about full-throttle, tight-turning road running is it is illegal. Additionally, running aggressively isn’t safe for any other vehicles you may encounter seeking to fulfill your need for speed despite any protective motorcycle gear your wear.

Don’t Despair – Get Thee to the Track

Any motorcycle enthusiast seeking the thrills of unrestricted riding should participate in what is termed as “track days.” Yes sir, all throughout the country there are racing tracks that offer riders the opportunity to discover what their bike can really do by pushing operating limits that on public by-ways can get you jailed, hurt or dead. However, you will need certain attire as top protection to make sure you don’t get your butt in a sling – literally. You need protective gear such as motorcycle suits, sturdy helmet, riding boots and gloves.

You Will Take a Spill

Well, hopefully not but statistics point to the fact that crashes and falls will be highly probable when running full bored out on a track. This is why you need to wear protective motorcycle suits. Newbies to track riding will experience cuts and cornering that have never been seen before out on the public roads. So, if inexperience leads to biker error, a likely occurrence since you will be traveling at higher speeds than street travel, any crash or spill will be a lot more intense. Wearing proper motorcycle gear will help diminish the intensity – or possibly avoid serious bodily damage. With the proper motorcycle gear on, your track days experience can be a lot of fun and safe as well.

Necessary Motorcycle Suit Features

Specific features when examining gear like this for the track should include:

  • Leather – Always consider one made from leather  since it will provide the utmost protection. Thick, superior quality leather offers the ultimate in abrasion protection. But, make sure it isn’t cheaply made or used leather and has to be at least 1.2mm thick in order to protect the user during a possible track fall.
  • One-Piece – is the preferred design style for the track so it ensures the rider’s maximum safety. Some prefer a two-piece but this choice is only viable if the two pieces connect with a heavy-duty zipper attaching the pants to the jacket. Never use snaps.
  • CE Approved Armor – must be designed covering all extremely vulnerable body areas such as knees, hips, elbows, shoulders and the spine. The role for armor in motorcycle track gear is to disperse impact energy preventing any serious body damage
  • High Tensile-Strong Stitching – is vital for protection and needs to be multiple-seamed so tearing is avoided during a fall. Never ride with body skin exposed since it will be ripped away during a fall causing a great deal of pain and bleeding.

Make sure a choice of a motorcycle suits has these features before participating in track days.
