RR12 - Mark 2 Men's Classic Long Board Leather Racing Suit - Single Zip
The RR12 is the MK2 version of the one piece Classic Road racing suit enhanced with upgrades such as F.A.S. Floating Armor and Powerstretch Aramid material. These suits are designed for maximum comfort and flexibility without sacrificing safety. This custom made suit is constructed of a single layer of 1.4mm competition weight cowhide.
All the zippers and hardware are long lasting brass. The wrists and ankles have raw edge leather construction to reduce the bulk in gloves and boots. The neck tab has a velcro closure tab flap to keep the main zipper in the safety locked position.
The RR12 comes with F.A.S. Armor which is located in the shoulders, elbow/forearm, knees and back pad. All of the armor is attached with our patented full floating armor system. This allows the armor to stay with the rider for safety while allowing the leather suit to flex and move with the rider. It has removable and adjustable backpad and closed cell foam hip pads. The edges of the hard plastic are covered with leather for safety. To see how well this armor works, please look at the video of Eric Gulbransen testing and cutting a piece of our armor apart.
The lining is nylon mesh for comfort and ventilation. The lining is partially removable to allow drying, cleaning and the ability to exchange one lining for another. This also facilitates repairs and maintenance on the suit. There are optional linings available in different materials, from wind-blocking rayon to ventilated mesh (standard) and cool-max for the really humid days.
The license holder (stamped with Vanson's unit number for identification) is located on the windflap behind the main zipper. The unit number of the suit is used to track ownership and service history.
Leather expansion section at the back is for comfort and freedom of movement. POWERSTRETCH key hole shaped sections at elbow/forearm and behind knees allows additional comfort in the racing position. Velcro fields at knees are for puck placement (pucks are an option).
As with all of our racing suits, we have additional customizing options that can be added for minimal costs.
The RR12 is an excellent traditional suit with current armor and protection technology.
