Absolutely top-of-the-class in terms of cut, feel and construction, an Absolute Racing Suit is for the rider who refuses to second-guess his riding gear choice.

Assembled absolutely using 1.1mm thick premium kangaroo leather from top to bottom, this lightweight, yet very strong and still supple leather suit’s panels are only interrupted by sections of aramid-bonded leather in high-impact/abrasion hotspots and stretch material in areas where leather isn’t required. You’ll notice this the first time you pick up the suit, and especially when you put it on. It’s almost like wearing pajamas, with lots of additional pieces of armor. It cannot be understated how fantastic it is to be able to move about on the bike without feeling like there’s a rubberband at your side trying to pull you out of shape.

Armor itself is found in the elbows, shoulders, tibias, and knees – all of which is CE-certified. Providing an assist in these positions, the aforementioned aramid grid-reinforced leather is used. You’ll see it in the photos as it appears to be just that, leather with a grid beneath it. Aramid material is the same material used in Kevlar. Its strength and durability has long been proven sufficient for in use in everything from combat armor to aerospace components. And if that’s not enough, there’s also room for the installation of an Alpinestars Nucleon back protector along with slots for chest armor. Replaceable knee and elbow sliders are fitted as standard.

Every aspect of the suit is designed from lessons learned working with the most demanding riders in history; Marquez, Vinalez … Crutchlow – to name a few. These are the guys that vector suit development for the Italian brand. Their work makes it into a production, off-the-peg suit that will not disappoint.

As if that wasn’t enough to denote how special this suit is, every one of them ships with its own cleaning solution and carrying bag.
