Speed and Strength Leathers?

Does anyone have Speed and Strength Leathers or know anyone that does. I was checking them out last year at the Moto GP race in Indy and they look like a good set of leathers. So just wondering how the fit,safety and comfort factors are on them.

I would think that Speed and Strenght is more like Icon, made mostly for street use, but I have never seen a set of leathers from them. I know Motorcycles Unlimited and Tejas are dealers for them. So PM or call either shop depending on what side of town you are on.

I would ask to inspect the suit before I bought it.

Actually, Speed and Strength are very good leathers. Toseland wears them. They took the Teknic line, hired the designer from Joe Rocket, and voila! I'll be sportin a new set in a month or so.

Go ahead and get them. they are a great value and very good quality.

Im kinda curious about these myself as Tucker Rocky is trying to get me outta my AStars and into a set of these... We will have them on display April 18th and April 19th at MSR Houston for the trackday event. If they are good enough for Hodgson and Toseland then surely they have some decent credibility.
