Revit TT one-piece suit, £750
Miles covered/time: 2000/one year
What’s good? Although, thankfully, I’ve not had to test either the impact protection or abrasion resistance of this suit, its construction is satisfyingly chunky, almost heavyweight, and gives the impression that if the worst happened you’d be OK.
It’s a snug but comfortable fit, the armour seats where it should and doesn’t move around when you’re on the bike.
It’s also easy on the eye. None of this hard-to-clean white, gold or silver kit – black is the new black, I’m telling you.
What’s not? Annoyingly, the Velcro closure has become unglued through nothing more than a couple of thousand miles of hard road and occasional track use.
It’s not like it’s flapping in my face or anything, and a spot of super-glue would hold it down – it’s just that you really shouldn’t have to fix uncrashed gear, should you?
