Printed suits – Design and safety together

What do we call a “printed suit”?
We’re talking about a suit that has the design printed directly onto the leather.  The suit is not cut and sewn from a large number of separate pieces of colored leather, lettering and logos.  It is instead, cut out of the largest pieces of leather to reduce the seams to a bare minimum, which means increased safety.

For the flexible and also sufficiently rigid connection polyester threads are mostly used which retain about 5 kilograms in tension. In addition, they must be sufficiently resistant to all matters or agents which exist with motorbikes, such as petrol, water solutions and various solvents. Next conditions are resistance to fungal attack and sufficiently long lifetime.

The basic material of the racing suits has ever been true leather for tens of years. The most used leather (tanned processed leather) is cow leather, so called face leather. It is the most available high-quality material and it has a high strength and a great abrasion resistance thanks to modern processing methods.
