New Suit advice

Looking to upgrade my suit. I want something more comfortable than hardcore technical. Looking at Dainese Aspide or Trickster. Any suggestions? Currently, I'm rocking an Astars RC-1.

my brother took back his A* RC-1 suit after seeing my Dainese Laguna Seca Pro and trying one on. he sports a Dainese suit now. I suggest you try one....

I have a dainese and love it, but I'm getting a heroic as my next suit. They feel amazing, Todd let me try a suit out for a session. It felt so much better you almost don't know your wearing it.

I have a shift, I've had a couple slow crashes, a 100mph lowside, and a 110mph highside in it, and it still kicks ass. It's about 20 lbs, comes with all the armor you'll need, great fit, awesome ventilation, and durable as crap.

You might be able to find an MX-1 for a reasonable price. It's the step up from the RC-1. They crash really well

Here's my problem with the dainese I have, It sucks to get a repair done. They put so many dumb stitches on it.

I've been lucky to find a local old guy who repairs eurpoean bags... he's a beast. so far theres nothing I haven't done to my suit (or my buddies to theirs), that he hasn't been able to fix on the cheap..

Thumbs up I prefer Dainese

Comparing Alpinestars vs Dainese, I prefer Dainese. The quality is a little better and the fit is better.... if you like snug. Alpiestars suits have plastic logos etc. vs leather for Dainese.I had the Alpinestars Race Replica and was disappointed with it. It was nothing more than SX-1 with elbow and shoulder protection "tacked" on to it....was too big for my size.
To get the better prices, check out Motorama.com in Italy. Make sure you know what size you want. Your Visa card may not work but Paypal transactions work. You can save up to 1/3..takes about a week to get your suit if they are in stock. I got a Dainese Aspide for just over $1100 (with shipping) vs $1500 (w/o shipping) for US prices. Oh, they sell all brands.
