A few serious one piece questions.

I'm getting ready to take my bike to the track. I know I need a full leather suit. I have the over wrist gloves and boots. I wouldnt ride in anything else.

Here are my questions.


Im a decent sized stocky guy.

I'm 5'10 265 pounds. My issue is my legs and buttocks areas. I have the body for a power lifter and my thighs are 30 inchs around. My waist in jeans is a 38but I get them baggy fit to fit my legs and ass. The outfits at my local stores are way to small. I dont want to spend the change and buy the wrong size. Does anybody have an idea as to what size and maybe if different suits fit better in those areas.

not sure but you could always do a custom to fit you perfect. I went with Komodo and they did an amazing job with my suit.

custom it is...

You can contact Komodo here. www.komodogear.com They actually have a spot where you can design what colors you want and add any logos. They will work with you and Wayne is their main contact. You may want to give Indysuperbike a call about getting it started as they are Komodo's North american distributor. their phone number is 317-577-1743 and they are a site sponsor here as well.

Watch out for Komodo gear. The lying bastards!!!!!! I'm sure they make a good product, I'll tell ya IF I ever get my friggin suit. Took me two weeks of calling and E-mailing just to get somebody to take my order. Then Wayne (one of the owners) promises me that I will have my suit in plenty of time for a local track school and assures me that I can prepay for the school with no worries. With 4 weeks to go till the school I start calling him. A week later he returns my calls to tell me that my suit is at least 2-3 weeks away. A week later I call him and he then tells me another month. Needless to say, I can't attend the school date that I prepaid for. Luckily trackaddix is letting my and my buddy reschedule our school for next month at no extra charge. All I can say is for $1500 the suit better be damn good cause the customer service is shit!

I think you'd do best with a custom suit.
