Default Spidi GP Wind Pro Suit Review

Spidi GP Wind Pro 1 Piece Suit Review


Ending my contemplation of a different suit than my Joe Rocket Speedmaster, I ended up choosing the Spidi GP Wind Pro Suit. I sold the extra gear I had lying around including the Speedmaster suit to get this, and use it as my main protective gear. Took a while to do all this, but it was well worth it. I also have the optional Warrior Back Protector installed in the back. This suit retails for $1,500. I managed to grab it for $844 shipped!! It was pretty much a once in a lifetime buy. Found it on ebay. You won't be able to get it for any cheaper. I got pretty lucky.

Features: [ul][*]Optional .5 liter drink system can be installed in the full size race back hump[*]CE certified Biomechanic shoulder and elbow guards, the industries highest rated protection system[*]Internal pocket for an optional Warrior spine guard to be installed[*]Constructed from 1.2mm premium Italian top grain leather[*]Elasticized areas around the knees, shoulders blades, and lumbar area[*]Schoeller Keprotec throughout the arms, crotch, inner thigh area and the rear of the knees/calves for added flexibility as well as breathability[*]Additional foam padding is placed in the rib, rear of thigh, biceps, tailbone and shoulder blade areas[*]8cm of knee pad height adjustability[*]New Icon[*]Bi-phase knee sliders[*]Inner pocket[*]Neoprene ankles, cuffs and collar inserts to increase comfort[*]Venting is handled via perforated leather in the stomach, inner arm, inner calf and inner leg areas with an exhaust vent on each shoulder blade[/ul]The suit has incredible armor in necessary places - shoulder, elbow, back(optional back protector), hip/rear of thigh, tail bone, ribs, biceps, triceps, and shoulder blades. You usually don't see any protection offered for ALL of these places. The only complaint I would have is that there is no armor protecting your front, such as your chest and your abdomen. I managed to use my creativy to alter the suit to my liking. With some dense padding and industrial velcro, I created my own protection for the front. I installed this between the suit's liner the the leather. Now, it's perfect! The suit fits me perfectly. The leather is comfortable and supple. Absolutely top notch.

The suit comes with an optional Hydroback system. This allows riders to rehydrate while riding at any speed. Basically, it's a water pack in the speed hump and a straw comes out of it to wrap around one side of the neck to your mouth. It's really neat!

Here is a link to the suit.

Default RE: Spidi GP Wind Pro Suit Review

whoohoo! new gear...sweet, and Spidi no less...mmmm Italian. I still haven't broken in my Spidi NRG leather on a ride yet cause I just loves wearing it around the house, sitting at the computer, posting on CBR Forum! God it smells so good, though...

That was a smokin' deal man, great job. Nothing beats getting top shelf gear for bargain basement pricing. Damn now I need a suit. [>:]
