Does any one have any recomendations on suits at a reasonable price, under 600. Are one piece better then 2 piece for protection.
Alpinestar, Joe rocket, AGV etc.
Thanks

There's a post on here somewhere bro in the riding gear and apparel. Some good insights from some senior riders and from those with personal experiences as well (crash tested and all).

Just check in the riding gear and apparel section. I'd send you the link, but my computer skills are matched only by my riding skills so you're SOL.

Good luck!

I have a Joe Rocket GPX suit. I think it was right below $500. I only got to wear it a couple times last year but I felt alot more safe in my one piece than with just a leather jacket on.

Use the search feature to find the discussion

Here's a hard won tip:
If you get a 2 piece it can be kind of awkward reaching around to zip the jacket to the pants, and people look at you funny if you have a buddy do it. Don't be lazy and not zip them together. The jacket can ride up when sliding down the road allowing flesh to touch down.
