looking for a trackbike!!








TEKNIC Teknic Xcelerator Silver/Black One Piece Race Suit....Should I spend a grand ?

I'm really liking this suit. I have been looking for some time now to get a track suit and stop renting......I just dont want to go the cheap route and get something that Isn't gonna protect me as well/ be comfortable to ride in. I would rather spend an extra 500 than deal with a broken arm, etc again.


Any experience with this suit, suggestions?

the way that I am, I will only spend big money on an item once. or at least to once as I can. I think it's a waste of time and money to get something that's not right.

I have the exact same suit, but let me say that I didn't spend $1000 on it. I like it and it has been "tested," it held up great and had nothing other than some scuffs.

Yeah, I talked to them yesterday and they were telling me that they went factory direct. Im still up in the air about the Komodo.....It really sucks spending that much money and not even being able to try it on

I know I've personally seen Komodo out at the CMRA races with suits available to be tried on, give em a call and see the next event that they'll attend. IMO trying on the suit is a must. I'm currently on my fourth suit, and just now at the right size. My current suit is an Xcelerator, and the only negative I can say about it is that the shin armor cuts into your legs when off the bike. Deals are out there, just gotta find em, fwiw the Xcelerator cost me $600 brand new.
