When we go to buy a motorcycle suit, we always have the doubt of knowing if a suit is of sufficient quality to protect us from a fall and offer us the necessary comfort on the motorcycle.
Obviously, we are looking for a suit with a good quality-price ratio, which offers us high performance without the need to make an excessive outlay. But the problem is that this is not always possible, and on many occasions, we end up buying motorcycle suits of a quality that leaves much to be desired.
Therefore, to help you get it right, we are going to tell you how to know if a motorcycle suit is of quality and will fit your needs. Take note!
KEY POINTS TO KNOW IF A MOTORCYCLE SUIT IS OF QUALITY AND NOT TO FAIL WITH YOUR CHOICE
When explaining the points that will help identify if a motorcycle suit is of quality, it is necessary to differentiate between leather motorcycle suits and sanity motorcycle suits.
LEATHER MOTORCYCLE SUITS
If you are going to buy a leather motorcycle suit and you want to make sure that it is of quality, the first thing you should pay attention to is that it is a genuine leather suit, either cowhide or kangaroo.
Many brands have leather motorcycle suits that they sell as if they were leather, so it is important to be vigilant. A leatherette suit will not only be more uncomfortable, but it will also not offer you protection in the event of a fall, so if you really care about your safety, we recommend that you avoid this material.
It should also be at least 1.3 millimeters thick, otherwise, it won’t give you the abrasion protection you need.
Another important point to pay attention to is the seams. All quality leather suits will have double reinforced seams in the areas where there is a greater probability of impact (elbows, hips, shoulders, knees, and buttocks), to prevent them from tearing in the event of a strong fall. In addition, the double seams increase the resistance and the useful life of the suit.
And you should also look at the suit’s protection, both inside and outside. It must approve internal protections on the shoulders, elbows, back, hips, knees, and shins.
As for the external protections, the most common is the fixed metal protections on the knees and shoulders.
These would be the most important elements when identifying a quality leather motorcycle suit, although there are other secondary ones that you should also take into account.
SANITY MOTORCYCLE SUITS
If, on the other hand, you prefer to get a sanity motorcycle suit, what you should pay most attention to is that the sanity is thick enough. Thick sanity will give you an abrasion resistance of about five seconds, while if it is not thick enough, it will barely protect you in case of contact with the asphalt.
The ideal would be high-quality 600-D polyester sanity, which is anti-abrasion, waterproof, windproof, and breathable.
And in the same way, as in leather, sanity motorcycle suits must also have removable internal protections in the areas of greatest impact.
Rayner sanity motorcycle suits are two-piece suits (trousers + jacket) joined by a zipper, made of quality sanity, equipped with removable internal and external protections, which will offer you maximum comfort and safety during the motorcycle.
OTHER ASPECTS TO KNOW IF A MOTORCYCLE SUIT IS OF GOOD QUALITY
These are the most important elements that you should look at before buying a motorcycle suit, but there are other secondary aspects that you should also take into account since they will directly influence comfort on the motorcycle.
In the case of leather motorcycle suits, it is important that the leather is flexible enough, otherwise, you will feel more uncomfortable and you will not have the necessary maneuverability.
The area of the elbows, knees, and back must have leather in the form of bellows, while the armpits, crotch, and calves must have elastic fabric to facilitate twisting.
Inner mesh lining:
That the suit has a fixed breathable mesh inner lining. In this way, you can avoid being in direct contact with the suit, and thus keep it in better condition and feel more comfortable on the bike.
Inner thermal lining:
Another element that we value in a motorcycle suit is that it has a removable inner thermal lining with a zipper, to enjoy greater protection on the coldest days of winter.
The suit’s vents are also important, especially in the chest, thighs, back, and biceps area.
If the suit is not micro-perforated, which is the most recommended for summer as they allow air to enter, it must have zipper vents on the chest, biceps, back, and thighs.
Many times we overlook it, but the fact that the suit has pockets is a very important aspect for your comfort. All Rayner motorcycle suits always have an inside pocket, and also incorporate outside pockets on both the jacket and pants.
In this way, it will be much more comfortable for you to store your mobile phone, wallet, motorcycle documentation, etc.
To increase your visibility and have greater safety, we recommend opting for a suit that has reflective strips on the elbows, chest, and back.
If the next time you go to buy a motorcycle suit you want to make sure that it is going to be a quality suit, comfortable and sufficiently resistant, take a look at the elements that we have just mentioned.
