Berik 8320 one-piece suit, £499.99
Miles covered/time: Three months/1000 miles
What’s good? Fit, style, price and protection. Disappointingly I’d only spent a 1000 miles in this suit before gravel came between the road and my tyres, and I came to earth with a heavy thump at 35mph, sliding across rough tarmac chippings into a ditch.
The MCN patch on the arm is the only part you can consider damaged, but it’s a cosmetic add-on from an outside company anyway. A professional clean and light re-colouring will have them as good as new.
This is Berik’s cheapest one-piece, but in terms of style, comfort and protection, it hasn’t felt it in my experience – it’s very good value. It matches GSX-Rs and the BMW S1000RR beautifully too.
What’s not? Nothing to report – it’s a bit snug for me, but my tall/broad shouldered proportions mean getting enough height with snug fit around my torso is difficult.
It is still comfortable to wear – I just need to tread carefully off the bike to avoid testicles getting squashed. Google search it before you buy – some shops are selling them at a decent discount.
