We will discuss what fits and what is to be adjusted when making to measure, then draft a design in the computer program, choosing colours, according to our colour chart, discuss all details, and options of accessories. Next you shall be measured and we take pictures of your figure for our cut designer to get all the necessary information.

Yes, the finished product can be sent to your address, although in the Czech Republic, and in the neighbouring countries, we recommend you to pick it up in one of our factory shops. Why? We will test and evaluate it technically, if everything fits as requested.
8/ WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SUIT DOES NOT FIT DURING THE TAKEOVER/HANDOVER?
If you pick up the suit in person, the sales assistant will immediately note needed adjustments in a special form for our production department and the suit will be returned to the factory for rework. These adjustments will usually be done within 2 weeks. If you received the suit by post, and it is impossible for you to visit us in person, then you will be in touch with your sales contact by e-mail or phone, and they will tell you how to proceed.
9/ DO YOU PROVIDE ANY WINTER OR SPRING DISCOUNTS?
No. The prices are defined for the full calendar year. Only in case that there is a change of the ready-made product portfolio, there can be a sale of inventory of the previous model series.
10/ IN WHICH FORMAT DO YOU NEED THE LOGOS I WANT TO PUT ON MY MOTORCYCLE CLOTHING?
The best format would be in vector graphic, cdr, eps, ai formats. Alternatively, you can send us pictures, by e-mail, and we shall inform you, if the format is suitable.
11/ IS IT POSSIBLE TO ADJUST MOTORCYCLE CLOTHING IN THE FUTURE?
Yes, thanks to our own production site, in the Czech Republic, adjustments may be done. All cuts and product documentation are archived. In case of a need to modify something, the data will be available to be used for the adjustment. For example, if the suit will be damaged in consequence of a fall, it is very easy to take the parts from the archive, produce new ones and replace them. Similarly if your size, or shape should change the appropriate resizing can be done.
12/ DO YOU SEW ALSO GLOVES MADE TO MEASURE?
We produce the PSí RACE – Kangaroo Hide Glove, directly inside our own manufacturing plant in the Czech Republic. It is possible to arrange individual modification, after trying the ready-made sizes, as well as producing a customised design to match a suit, for example. Contact the sales team.

14/ DO YOU PRODUCE SUITS WITH AN AIRBAG? ALTERNATIVELY, MAY AN AIRBAG BE INSERTED TO AN EXISTING SUIT?
15/ WHICH PROTECTORS, FROM WHICH PRODUCER DO YOU USE?
We use our own PSí® double protection system, which comprises of a combined placement of two types of protectors, over the exposed shoulder, and elbow areas. The inner element is a 3D protector made from a viscoelastic foam, from either Sas-Tec® or Betac®, and the outer, our so called "ferrites", from a high strenth steel or "DEAS technology" of a specialised 3D plastic. This system has been tested extensively, including by a number of top level professional racers (such as Karel Abraham, MotoGP), and its function positively confirmed to absorb the energy of impact as much as possible, distributing the force of a larger area than is usual, thus reducing the risk of injury. Next advantage of our own PSí® double protection sysem is a reduction of damage of the suit during the fall. The repairs then only mean just to replace this outer protector; it is economical for the customers.
More about our own PSí® double protection system you can read on our blog New shoulder and elbow protection technology DEAS
Where the customers prefer more comfort (touring kits), we use Sas-Tec® protectors from viscoelastic foam from German producer or Betac® from Italien producer.
The areas, where there is a need of bending, freedom of motion and it is impossible to insert rigid plastic protectors (hips, arms, collar bones, thorax, coccyx), are reinforced with a special foam Viscofoam® from German producer.
Then the PSi products are characterized by a special reinforced seating parts and safety seams.
16/ WHICH LEATHER DO YOU USE, AND OF WHAT QUALITY?
We use leather from a reputable Italian supplier, with a long-term tradition especially focussed in processing hides for the application of motorcycle clothing. The surface is coated as hydrophobic (waterproof), the material especially tested against fraying, tensile resistance, perforation resistance, and colour fastness.
We use cow leather with a thickness of 1,2 to 1,4 mm for suits, and selected jackets and trousers.
For selected lightweight suits we use 0,9 to 1,1 mm thick kangaroo.
For some models, especially for ladies, we use a special tempered (softened) 1,0 to 1,2 mm thick cow hide.
Calf leather in the range 0,7 to 1,0 mm thickness is used for the city collection or "cafe racer" style.
17/ IS THE INNER LINING IN THE SUITS REMOVABLE?
The removable inner lining is only in the one-piece suits. It is fixed inserted in the two-piece suits.
18/ WHICH STRETCH MATERIALS DO YOU USE AND IN WHICH PARTS OF THE SUIT CAN WE CHOOSE THEM?
We use a stretch Kevlar fabric, Keprotec, from the Swiss producer Schoeller®. It is an elastic fabric, reinforced by aramid fibers, with high resistance against rupture and fraying, providing increased mobility in specific areas and air permeability. It is inserted in the sleeves, crotch, and on the back of the calf, and offered in black, red and blue colours.
19/ ARE THERE SUIT DESIGNS IN KANGAROO AND COW LEATHER, MAY I COMBINE THEM?
Yes, you may choose a suit, all in cow or all in kangaroo leathers. It is also possible to have a combination of kangaroo-cow hides in one garment, where the kangaroo is used for the front panels, in the body and parts of the sleeves where you need more comfort and softness to "mould yourself to the motorbike", other parts are then made from cow leather.
