Atem suit

Motorcycle Monthly - - Product -

Get­ting on for the best part of a grand means, in my world, that a suit had bet­ter be good – and af­ter crash­ing twice in this suit in the space of four months I can vouch that it is just that. 1.3mm leather with very flex­i­ble aramidic stretch pan­els, great ven­ti­la­tion through the suit and a Mo­toGP-pro­file aero­dy­namic back hump which is also vented keep you very com­fort­able and able to move around the bike eas­ily.

The ex­ter­nal pro­tec­tion on the shoul­ders, el­bows, knees are barely felt when you’re wear­ing the suit and there’s an eas­ily-re­mov­able and wash­able liner. Col­lar and all cuffs are Neo­prene-edged for com­fort, too.

You can see from the pics how lit­tle dam­age the suit suf­fered. Aside from the cos­met­ics there was very lit­tle ‘real’ dam­age to the struc­ture of the suit. I car­ried on rid­ing through­out the day happy in how the suit would per­form should I crash again – and that tells you a lot about how this suit stood up to a fast crash.

A lot of money, yes, but worth it to lit­er­ally save your skin.
