TJ, I disagree. Just because you have not seen it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Couple weeks ago a driver’s knee was torn wide open while wearing a karting suit in a nasty crash. Skin was ground down to the knee-cap.

John, agreed on the stinky part lol, but the protection must be better. I love the breath-ability of my custom kart suit, but honestly, if I’m to hit the pavement, I’d rather be in my Herioc mototcycle leathers. Modern leathers breathe pretty well too, as long as you’re moving. Still tight n get stinky tho
