RST Race Depart­ment made-to-mea­sure 1pc suit

HOW LONG THREE MONTHS COST £POA

Performance Bikes (UK) - - Used Stuff - John McAvoy

ACU RACE LI­CENCE hold­ers can now get made-to-mea­sure ver­sions of RST’s Pro Series range of leathers, so I thought I’d give them a try. I’ve al­ways strug­gled to get suits to fit me, with my long body and skinny arms and legs, so for a per­fect fit made-to-mea­sure seemed the way to go.

The ser­vice is per­son­alised and prices de­pend on whether you want cow or kan­ga­roo hide (or a mix­ture of both), and any badges/ lo­gos you re­quire.

The suits are proper bits of kit and they’re used by a good chunk of the Bri­tish Su­per­bikes grid. They also come with built-in CE ar­mour and op­tions for el­bow slid­ers if you’re a show-off.

My suit is an off-the-peg Euro size 58, but al­tered with longer and skin­nier arms, legs and trunk, in my own de­sign. and is made from a cow/kan­ga­roo hide mix­ture with PB’s and my own badg­ing.

De­liv­ery took about eight weeks and the end re­sult is just as you would ex­pect – a per­fect fit for me, and re­ally com­fort­able. It is fin­ished to a re­ally high stan­dard with a qual­ity lin­ing and nice touches like neo­prene cuffs.
