Question # 1: What is the difference between cowhide and kangaroo leather?
Kangaroo leather is thinner, lighter and more stretchable than cowhide leather, which makes it possible, during manufacture, to make a suit that is much more fitted and "close to the body" than a suit made of cowhide leather. For the pilot, a kangaroo leather suit will be more comfortable to wear thanks to its lightness (about 3Kg of mins than a cowhide leather suit). Thanks to its extensibility and finesse, kangaroo leather is made more quickly, which allows the pilot to have a suit quickly pleasant to wear. To try it is to adopt it ! ;)
Question # 2: How do I "relax" the leather of my suit?
The easiest ... Wear it! And have a little patience too! The suits that you can find at large or small distributors in your area are, firstly, in standard size (and not made to measure) and therefore less "close to the body" and, secondly, they are made, for the most part, from several months and patiently wait in the reserve to be worn. Their leather therefore began to relax by force of circumstances! A word of advice: completely remove your inner lining. This will allow you to remove a "layer" of fabric. You can wear antiperspirant textiles (leggings and long-sleeved t-shirt) under your suit if you are afraid of friction. You will already feel a little better to start loosening your leather when you go for a ride. When you feel more comfortable, you can put your liner back on.
Question # 3: How do I take the measurements AND the photos at the same time?
Alone, it will be complicated ... Two is possible but three is better! The photos are very important because they allow us to see if the measurement was taken correctly. We don't need the photo of the measurement itself (the number) but rather how it was taken. This is why we ask to see the starting point of the measurement and the end point. However, you need a good quality photo to be able to read it correctly. Use a pen or felt-tip pen to draw the small lines that will allow you to mark the beginning and the end of the part to be measured. Do not forget to place or even replace the string at the level of your waist because behind your back, you can't see your navel ... Last resort: the seamstress! But be careful, compliance with the guide is compulsory even for professionals and does not guarantee that any measures will be taken in the event of a problem at the reception. Go to the contact page for some places to have your measurements taken!

Very simple: you print the blank sketch you received and you make me a beautiful coloring;) Even with a pen, it works as long as you specify which color you want in the caption. For the "popular" logos that you want to integrate, download a jpg on the internet, rename it by a number that you will transcribe on a second blank sketch at the desired location.

Question # 12: Are your wetsuits waterproof?
Leather is skin so it is waterproof. On the other hand, the parts in stretch kevlar which are over the entire length of the arms on the inside and the back of the legs are not. On the other hand, our one-piece suits are all perforated on the front at the level of the torso and on the top of the thighs therefore not waterproof in these areas. Nevertheless, you can ask that it is absolutely not perforated or partially perforated.

The aerodynamic hump is simply aesthetic for the everyday rider but it can also be used to integrate a water bottle inside for long trips or road trip. This gourd is connected to the front of the suit thanks to a pipe that will allow you to drink while riding. However, the water bottle remains an option that you must select when ordering so that your wetsuit is equipped with it. For the Pistards and other paddock champions, the aerodynamic hump is aptly named and everything is explained in this last lol. It is standard on 1-piece suits and optional on 2-piece suits.

Question # 16: To start the track, a 2-piece or 1-piece leather suit?
It is always more pleasant and enjoyable to go on the track with a one-piece suit because your movements on the bike are more present and more exaggerated than on the road. The part between the jacket and the pants of the 1-piece suit may be awkward. But it is sure that if you are more eligible to have a little coffee after a good walk or a good drink with your friends than to do the track, a two-piece will be more appropriate to let your athletic body take the edge off. air after having perspired like a donkey because with a 2 piece suit .... well you will have the sleeves that will caress the ground;).
