ATTN BIG GUYS: 1-Piece Suggestions - February 2, 2010, 10:44 PM

Well I love my Rev-It 1 piece however I cannot move freely in it for the life of me. I got it in size 60EU and after $350 worth of alterations by Lizzie it was good for a while but as soon as I started working out I stopped fitting it again I know there are a lot of big riders out there and I would like to know their stats and what brand of suit they fit into along with size. I can't find any one piece suits out there past 60EU...

I'm 6 foot tall and plan on maintaining 270lbs for a while.

Suggestions welcome. Getting smaller is not an option!

If you got $$$ to spend talk to Todd from Heroic, he will make you a custom suit, he can put a Turkish flag on the suit, a penis, anything you want. Let me know if you want his info.

Gem u and I are more or less the same size. I was looking at ordering a suit from pilot leathers. They make awesome suits that are much better quality than Spartan and they take like 30 measurements so it fits you perfectly. They r having a special right now. 1100$ and u pick any colors. Patches humps and whatever and it's all included

If you are on a budge....

JOE ROCKET 2pc.....

I've swallowed the pill that my frame was not built for a 1 piece ANYTHING....the last time I fit a one piece was 6'ft 245lbs in High School Wrestling....

Sure once pieces are better protection...but a 2 piece will just have to do for me for now on my budget...


What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."

Gee I wonder why they cost what they do? Could it be they are made to last and do their job? Could it be they are made custom for you? Do you really have anything to say or you just really a jerk?

Pilot or Spartan. Although someone recommended Pilot for better quality... Spartans around $600, Pilot is around $1100. Full Custom though.

I've seen a few people saying good things about spartan leathers. They are pretty cheap for a custom suit. I don't have any first hand experience with them but the guy is going to do a supermoto suit for me.

Will post a review.
