There is a line from an old Alabama song that states “If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta’ have a fiddle in the band.” I’ve never been to Texas, so I will have to take their word for it. However, what I do know, is that if you are going to go to a track day, or you just ride fast in general, you are going to need a leather suit.
The Joe Rocket Blaster X Two Piece Race Suit is a great entry-level option for riders who are looking to get their foot in the racing door. While not a cheap investment by any means, the top and bottom provide a great value as they can be worn as a unit on the track or individually on the street. From the 1.1-1.3mm thick top grain cowhide to the titanium reinforced, CE armored shoulders and the rest of the CE-approved armor in the knees and elbows, this is a beefy set of gear that offers a very hearty defense should you ever hit the pavement. At the same time, a pre-curve in the the sleeves and legs, along with Cordura stretch panels offer increased comfort and mobility.
Having the right tool for the job is one of the most important things that you can do to achieve success. If you are new to the track day style of riding, just beginning your time on two wheels, or are just a Joe Rocket fan, the new Blaster X Two Piece Race Suit is definitely worth your time.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
