Have you ever struggled removing your one piece leathers on your own? All that hopping around on a cold pit garage floor and faffing about as you extricate sweaty arms from sleeves. Not cool.
As much as I love my snug fitting Dainese suit, enough was enough. For the recent GSX-R600 launch I equipped myself with an Extreme racing under-suit, made of wicking, slippery X-Fibre. This model, the TRX-S is aimed at track day customers, like myself.
We experienced two distinct temperature ranges within the day's Southern Spanish track action. Bakingly hot mid-day and chuffing freezing once the sun was over the yard arm. The TRX-S coped with both and definitely kept a bit of the chill out for the later sessions. But not having to enlist a helper to disrobe is the suit's main tour de force. I'm sold.
It's hardly a bank buster, either. This suit is normally £39.99 but is only £34.99 in the January sale.
And it gets better. Visordown visitors (God bless y'all) get an extra £3.25 off (the cost of P+P) by typing in the voucher code UK-FREE-SHIP.
The TRX-S is available in all sizes from S to XXL. The suit in these pics is a Large size (I'm 5ft 9 and twelve and a half stone) but is stretchy enough to fit thirteen party balloons inside which gives you some idea of how comfy it is to wear under leathers.
