Dainese Avro Two Piece Suit Sports passion and assertiveness complemented by elevated protection and technical content distinguish this two-piece suit with an enviable quality-price ratio that makes it a good entry level product to the Dainese world. Co-injected shoulders with aluminum inserts, homologated protectors that apply technology derived from F1 racing experience, and cowhide with high abrasion resistance are only a few of the features vaunted by this two-piece suit. Remarkable comfort and freedom of movement during even the most competitive riding are ensured by the ample elasticated inserts, highly-resistant bi-axial elasticated S1 fabric, and the 3D Bubble liner Features Composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Co-injected shoulder with aluminum insert Soft protectors certified to Standard EN 1621.1/97 at sides Cowhide 3D Bubble liner with air chambers Aerodynamic Hump S1 Fabric Ergonomics Suit Boots fastening System Double Zipper at calf Inserts in stretch fabric Elastic Inserts Collar with elasticated insert Sanitized liner Soft inserts Interchangeable sliders Internal Pocket

I am both a sport/touring guy and a track day guy. This 2-piece suit is fantastic for BOTH. So while this suit is expensive, if you can use it for both touring and track days like I do, it sure beats a $500 track day leather and $500 textile jacket/pants.
I am 6' 1'' and 215 lbs and the 56 fits me perfectly. I ride a Tiger 1050 on the street and this suit flows good air from the S1 fabric. I wear heated vest underneath if cold and an eddie bauer goretex rain shell over the top if raining. There are no pockets except one small one in the chest that I use for my gas credit card so it works perfect for me as carry all my wallet, phone, etc in the tiger's hard cases. At track days on my Superhawk, the avro is just plain awesome and is very comfortable in sport bike position.
So, while one might expect this suit to be awesome on the track, I have found it to be excellent touring gear which is not expected. The only think a bit strange is walking around with big ole knee sliders on but on this suit they are black and blend in #I have the black, white, orange version#. Unlike many suits, this one has nice white and orange flicks to give some pretty good visibility. The top and bottom zip together with no fuss at all. It's not quite as easy as using your typical textile touring gear but it fits tremendously better and and I feel 200% safer in the leathers. Highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.
