This really is a great piece for an entry level suit from Teknic. I have tried on the previous generations of the Chicane and they have really stepped it up from those years. The leather feels much better than what others offer for the price and the stretch panels are placed very well. First time I wore it was at the track and after corner one I didn’t even notice it, I find that extremely important in new suit. The last thing you want is to lean off the bike and the suit hold you up. Very comfortable.
I am 6’ 200lbs and wear a A* bionic vest underneath (back and chest protector) and the size 46us is a great fit. It is a little tight in the shoulder to crotch length when walking around, but in crouch position it fits just right, as a proper track suit should. It would be nice to see some hard shoulder protection as on the higher end models, but for the price point I really can fault this suit. The sliders won’t last long if you plan on tracking this suit, very thin and not the greatest material, not a big issue though.
Yes, I recommend this product.
