The World's safest race suit? It has a certificate...

Brand new for 2011 is the WAS+™ leather race suit from GIMOTO

A bold claim.

Here is what GIMOTO had to say:

GIMOTO launches WAS+™ - the world’s first ergonomic and homologated race suit that exceeds CE EN 13595 level 2.

Rider safety has been the core focus of Gimoto for many years - achieved daily with our made-to-measure production of leather suits,the most critical aspect of rider protection.

10 years ago the Gimoto research and development centre designed an homologated airbag gilet.

WAS+™, developed and produced completely in Italy, is born directly from that Gimoto technical expertise and the professional skills of our team, combining in just one product the highest levels of resistance to abrasion, impact tears and seam bursting, with no compromises in rider comfort and quality of fit.

This important outcome, based on innovation in new materials, new ergonomic studies and many technical features, has also resulted in the development and introduction of a new elasticated fabric - called G-nforced™ - developed and patented directly by GIMOTO and used exclusively in the WAS+™ suit.

WAS+™ also introduces the new 3D™ inner liner that gives greater breathability and comfort to the rider.

WAS+™ is available now for the 2011 season with prices from 1250,00 euro (plus delivery and taxes).
