RST Race Department made-to-measure 1pc suit
HOW LONG THREE MONTHS COST £POA
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.
