Yep they carry it at Academy! It will be marked as hot weather/cold weather,or something like that! The Academy brand is ok, but the UA brand itself is made better and is softer! I don't like rough stuff aganist my skin so I pay more for the UA!

get a one piece under suit. With separates, the back of the shirt may rise up and you can't reach back to pull it down.

I use a long sleeve UA and UA shorts. Never had a problem.

If I could justify the cost, I would get a Tiachi under suit Since I'm not racing any more, the cost is kinda frivolous.

I've got some nice shorts (I paid too much for cycling shorts for the MS150) and if I tuck what ever I'm wearing into the shorts I really don't think I'll have a problem

I've found seeral places online that sell UA "heat gear" so now I know what I'm looking for

"heat gear" Thats the stuff. If you don't want to cough up UA's ridiculous prices: wal-mart sells a similar material for half the price. Its not as soft or as stretchy, but it still does the trick.

I think the walmart stuff is like $10. My skin can't tell the $20 difference, but my wallet can!

Great leathers, great repair service.

Martin,

Your a pretty good size boy and not too tall. Off the rack stuff may not fit too well. I hate the sleeves being too long and the legs and crotch as well.
Buy the best stuff you can afford.

My all time favorite is Kushitani. They crash better than any suit I have seen. On top of that they are light weight, comfy and fit very well.

Having lived in Golden, CO for 5 years I have a deeply imbedded hatred for road bikers so I don't think it'll ever be a problem.

I know someone that raced in this brand, I don't personally know anything about them. I'm sure just like any other brand, they have some level of protection based on the model, and it's usually price driven (more expensive, more protection).

A quick search for "rhino motorcycle leathers" only brought up Ebay sales ads. Buyer beware IMHO.

Thats fairly inexpensive, but I'd be weary. I know its sounds cheesy, but if you don't know anyone that races in them, there's probably a reason.

The only one I know of is not local: Motoliberty carries the Ride Smart Taichi under garmets that are the shiznit. Roadracing World did a brand comparison with all the major brands and the Ride Smart Taichi came out on top with cooling and comfort.

I'll bet Patrick can order some for you

You saw how my FT leathers held up at Cresson - scuffed a bit but no tears or blown out stitching. I'm gonna rock this suit until it falls apart, and then I'll probably but another Frank Thomas. It's held up fine for me, and as long as FT's gear continues to hold up well to crashes, I'll stick with it. I'd much rather trash a $300 suit than a $1200 suit.

Just my .02
