This is mostly for megaspaz, though anybody else is welcome to add their two cents.
How do you like your suit? Would you recommend it? Anything in particular you love about it? Anything you hate? Is the ventilation as good as they claim?
I’d love to hear what you think!June 14, 2009 at 9:28 pm #19707megaspazParticipant
Yes, I like the suit. The suit is great. Excellent ventilation and sturdy construction. The double zip is really nice as you don’t have to pull the whole top off to when you’re taking a break to cool down a bit. You just unzip the 2 zippers and let the front part hang down. The one thing I don’t really like is the price tag. If you’re just starting to do trackdays, this suit is probably overkill. The laguna seca suit is probably more than enough for beginner track riders. But, if you got the money, go for it.June 14, 2009 at 11:53 pm #19716
I started with the Laguna Seca almost two years ago, and during the summer it gets ridiculously hot despite being white. It just doesn’t move all that much air. The protection is also not quite up to the standards of the higher-end suits, and I’m really intrigued by the whole D-Skin (though the Laguna is now available with that option).
Cool, well thanks for the input!June 15, 2009 at 2:19 am #19718megaspazParticipant
fyi, if you’re talking about weather being 95-100+F, no suit in the world will keep you from feeling ridiculously hot. Summer days in Thunderhill can get to 100+F… I think the worst was 107F once. FAAAAAKKKKK….June 15, 2009 at 5:36 am #19723
I live in the Pac. NW for a reason: my version of “hot” is 75-85. I know. I’m a big pussy. Elwood, I don’t even want to hear about your Miami weather! And of course I understand that you’re always going to be toasty in leathers. I’ve just heard wonders about the W-Frame’s ventilation.June 15, 2009 at 1:10 pm #19727MunchParticipant
If your getting into track days I wouldn’t think anyone would call you a wuss. Though…I don’t even think there’s any where here that offers such a thing. Wish there was…..sorta.
