I love that RS suit! Just looks fast


I just bought a xcelerator on closeout. It's a 1200 dollar suit for half that it was a no brainer. I just hope it fits right. Riders discount sold it and has a good return policy so I went with them

Reasons I bought it
Cow/ kangaroo
Almost fully perforated
Adjustable knee and elbow protection (Knox)
Shoulder and elbow sliders.
Price.

I have Knox gloves w a palm slider so in theory when I go down one part of my body won't take too much of an impact thanks to sliders in major areas which should disperse the forces reducing the risk of fracture and dislocation.

I broke in my suit a little this weekend pictured above. I'm pretty happy with it. It does fit snug but is breaking in great even after a few hours of wear on a cool day.

The seams are well constructed and overlap one another so where other suits have popped seams I think this suit will hold up great.

The fact that most if it is kangaroo and perforated makes it feel like you're not safe but the Knox padding throughout is very reassuring. All of the pads were difficult to move when the suit was on so I think they'll stay in place great during an off. The Velcro securing was very compliant with being moved when the suit was off or in loosely.

It was about 58* when we started the first session and this suit really flows some air! I was very comfortable and think I made a good choice on suits.

The beast part of this suit was walking around in a $1400 suit you only paid $600 for! One of the guys said "I bet you paid a pretty penny for that" when I told him how much he was floored.

That seems to be the case.... I'm going to make some phone calls and friends.

No restricted movements.
Crashed 3 times on the same side, no tears.
Excellent quality product.

Cons: None.

This is the exact suit I want to buy this off season. Interested to hear what size you got and how it fits you. I'm 5'9" and about 175#, I was thinking I'd get a 46.....

Though many times they've seen the way to leave.
