    Here in the States, Dainese are considered the top of the line suit period. Spyke are on par with Alpinestars. Those dainese suit cost as much as your new bike in singapore. Texport has been around but rarely spoken for in the States. In the UK maybe so....
    i have the GPU suit by Alpinestars but i wish for the smx version suit. If i haev that cash laying around, you bet dainese will be on my shopping list.
    What do you know about bike prices in Singapore ya septic muppet
    You dont know **** all about lethers either
    Having crash tested a dainese K suit at Sepang I can say with confidence that they aint that good.
    I have a Texport suit and its just as good as the Dianese suit at a fraction of the price. If you can afford it go Technik, the kangaroo skin gloves rock

    Whatsup Yall,

    Recentally done with my track equiping purchases. Got this Fieldsheer suit from Speedy81, who rides a VFR( Good luck with your attachment in HK bro). A little loose on the waist, but overall in great condition.

    Although buying protective gear is can be quite costly, what most important lies on your well-being. I rather skip movie-going and save myself dollars and cents than seeing my skin on the tarmec.

    If you are able to spend time and effort sourcing for 2nd hand stuff, you can definately get bargains out there.

    Btw: I ride a red RVF and my suit is blue. Bad colour match =) .

    See you guys at PG.

    Erm... anyone knows where to get Arlen Ness kangaroo leather 1 piece suits...?? How much are they...?? Different models...??

    Can you guys recommend any other brand/model of good 1 piece suits with ventilation, around the budget of about $1000 to $1400...??
    Ride fast but safe... Skills matters most... the slow ONE... I WAS TOO SLOW at 1min 50.9sec

    For your Budget , you can also look at CLover RC100 1 piece suits. Chiap Lee has this range.

    I think Dainese has some models which are around there price.

    you can go for Rev-it suits. very good quality and solid make.
    biketech 21 available.

    made in Netherlands.

    i'm personally using Clover RC100 with speedhump. highly recommended as well

    clover RC100 is voted the best 1 piece suit by Bike magazine

    tried the Rev-it suit at biketech21 today. quite fun! wah i look damn good in a suit manz!

    anyway, noticed that the Rev-it suit i tried not so bent at the elbows as compared to the Texport. Any reason? Why is Texport make more raw?

    Went to Chiap Lee after that and seems the Clover suit is better priced! but the hump behind smaller. any comments?

    Da hump is for aerodynamics purpose, similiar concept to those helmets used for olympics speed cycling.

    It also protects the neck during collisions.

    Erm... guys, how about the Alpinestars GPU 1 piece...?? Any comments or reviews about this...??

    I find that there are very few brands/models available in SGP, compared to the UK or US...

    How about kangaroo leather...?? Any suit with this type of leather to recommend...?? I heard they are lighter & more resistant to tear...

    Main reason is that the Singapore market is too small . Not alot of people buy leather suits here .

    for normal day riding i think u are talking abt a jacket? can go for armour jacket for better protection. though can be abit hot and u look like american football player! they are available at the places mentioned by throttle above. depending on the brand can cost between $200 to $600?

    motoworld in kakit bukit is having some cheap range of good riding mesh jacket costing less than $200.

    maybe kewei might like to go there have a look..

    alternative u can head down to motoX as there is a range of HELD brand riding jacket. =)

    For those whose interested in Arlen Ness 04 collection... I've emailed the guy.

    This is his reply :

    Cowhide leathers are ard US$720.
    Kangeroo leathers are ard US$940.
    (1 piece leathers)

    The prices above are not inclusive of freight charges. If anyone is interested to order from them, it's better to get a few to order together to offset the freight charges.

    We have sizes from as small as 46 to 56, the Price Jungleboy quoted is in US$

    Some one from S'pore is currently nego with us being a distributor, so we can ony accept individual orders before this distributor's deal is finalized.

    If you can get 3-4 suits order together, then we'll paid for the airfreight

    Are you referring to that old Fieldsheer shop in KL. Or do you wanna be more specific? I have been in this business so long and I'm really skeptical if there is custom made to measurements suits for SGD$700.

    Maybe first you want to make up your mind if you posting to share info with others or you wanna make money.

    If you wanna share, there's a couple of people already asking you to be more specific about the source of this suit.

    If you wanna make money and dun wanna share the source for business reasons, then ok, but please list out what are you offering, the protectors used, CE approved or not, got racing hump or not, the thickness of the leather, the stitching is by a leather suit manufacturer or by some shop doing leather handbags, pencil case and doing this as part time, the kinda of sizing/fitting they use (jap, euro, german?) and your turnaround/delivery time, the delivery costs, etc.

    If acceptable, I will personally buy from you at $700 (inclusive of shipping costs?) to see for myself how custom made is this "custom made" suit.

    I have experienced myself "custom-made" suits which are plainly not custom as they make them out to be.

    Are you referring to that old Fieldsheer shop in KL. Or do you wanna be more specific? I have been in this business so long and I'm really skeptical if there is custom made to measurements suits for SGD$700.

    Maybe first you want to make up your mind if you posting to share info with others or you wanna make money.

    If you wanna share, there's a couple of people already asking you to be more specific about the source of this suit.

    If you wanna make money and dun wanna share the source for business reasons, then ok, but please list out what are you offering, the protectors used, CE approved or not, got racing hump or not, the thickness of the leather, the stitching is by a leather suit manufacturer or by some shop doing leather handbags, pencil case and doing this as part time, the kinda of sizing/fitting they use (jap, euro, german?) and your turnaround/delivery time, the delivery costs, etc.

    If acceptable, I will personally buy from you at $700 (inclusive of shipping costs?) to see for myself how custom made is this "custom made" suit.

    I have experienced myself "custom-made" suits which are plainly not custom as they make them out to be.
    Yeah man.... I asked twice and no proper answers....

    So want to share this lobang or wanna make money thru the lobang? .... Whatever it is... should be more specific... I still dunno what the hell are the details...

    Since you skeptical, you can dont believe me..

    If you want you can do some research on AHRS, its a company that does suits. Since its custom tailor, why do you still ask which sizing they go by?? The suit i've made is using armour from dainese..Yes, has a hump, its a alpinestar repilca

    Nomial fee = buy me kopi

    The questions were not specific, soo how i answer. Remember there are 2 choices 700 and 1k++.. Hint the 1K range i said in singapore...

    Delivery is abt 3-4weeks..

    Easy, who want info, just PM me.. Dont refer to the forum often to see the updates

    <<Since you skeptical, you can dont believe me..>>
    I&#39;m open minded to being convinced. And I&#39;m prepared to pay &#036;700 to do that and see for myself the quality of this suit. Does your &#036;700 include delivery to singapore?

    <<If you want you can do some research on AHRS, its a company that does suits. >>

    I did a word search and went through 20 over pages of results, no such company. Where is it based?? Got a link to share?

    <<Since its custom tailor, why do you still ask which sizing they go by??>>
    Bro, you seems to be an expert in suits. But how come you don&#39;t understand my question? Custom tailor is one thing, but the fitting of the suit, the template to develop the cutting varies from jap, euro, german, etc. Depending which market the company address, they tend to follow a certain template.

    << The suit i&#39;ve made is using armour from dainese..Yes, has a hump, its a alpinestar repilca>>
    Will the armor have a Dainese logo or it&#39;s just claimed?

    <<The questions were not specific, soo how i answer. Remember there are 2 choices 700 and 1k++.. Hint the 1K range i said in singapore...>>

    I sell things, I know what&#39;s important about suits, so I know exactly what type of info is important to provide. No need to wait till people ask. Ok, anyway, no intention to argue. Let&#39;s be specific then.

    So since u not into this to earn money, how about sharing the singapore 1K range source. I no need to bother you I go check it out myself.

    Armour is Dainese, i personally passed to them to insert in my suit. Sizing template used to be following kusutani.. Now not sure as they are starting to use AlpineStar as a guide. Template is as a rouge guide in making suits thats m,l, l/l or 48, 50, 52, etc. Correct me if i&#39;m wrong.. 20+ measurements are taken when my suit was made, including torso, leg length, waist to knee, waist to ankle, neck to neck amongst others.. For an idea, see the RS taichi measuring table..

    The 1K range is from biketech21.. There 1, green in color dont know if its still hanging there.. belongs to 1 customer..

    Hope this answers your querries

    Ah ok. I go Biketech very often, so now I know what you&#39;re talking about. The sample suit hanging there is blue by the way, not green.

    Sizing template is one thing, fitting is different. It determines how the company proportions the suit and the curvature of different body parts. And how they form the different pieces of leather into one suit. Anyway, if u say they follow Alpinestar, then I get the idea.

    Also, I wanna state that I&#39;m addressing all these not via PM because you know lah, better than you answer one by one, why not just post here everyone can read. Right? I have no other intentions. If you are agreeable.. then here&#39;s my other thoughts.

    Now regarding the &#036;700 one:

    - So you have to provide your own Dainese armour. If you don&#39;t? What would they give you?

    - Is this &#036;700 inclusive of delivery (I asked thrice liao leh..)

    - I finally found this AHRS on Google. The webpage takes so long to load it keep stalling and retry. So have to trouble you again to provide more info. I see malay words under the link in the search results of Google. Is this company malaysian or indonesian?

    - Also, you found this company via internet or friend recommend? Have you personally seen a suit made to measure by them for someone else? Did it fit exactly?

    - So how to pay? online or TT? Is this the first time you dealing with them? Pay liao don&#39;t arrive how? Arrive liao don&#39;t fit how? Got anyway to deal with these events? or we pay only when arrive?

    1)Doesnt include freight
    2)Indonesian company
    3)Yes, i&#39;m seen the suit, 2 of my friends are using them. Pretty good fit, as long as you dont get too fat around the waist or too bulky from weight training..
    4)Normal price is &#036;700, with their armours, sewn in so i have no idea what type. How much discount using my own, i have no idea as i didnt ask for break down. Did 3 suits total for my friends and i. Why i use my own armour is i get to choose and theirs are not spongy like Dainese.
    5)If fit not good can alter, but make sure you give them the right measurements in the first place. Pls get someone who knows how and where to measure...
    6)Payment by cash if you are in town, or bank transfer.
    7)My friend&#39;s boss has direct dealing with them, so i have no worries..

    Personally, i rather have kusutani custom suits or a ready made alpinestar. The former&#39;s too expensive and the second dont really "fit like a glove

    Okie??

    Great job man. So much clearer now.

    So I assume plus freight everything should come up to 800++. If they use DHL, it will be more expensive.

    But if they use air cargo, though cheaper, end up may be more because have to get a agent to clear customs and prepare paperwork and transport. Not forgetting GST payable at customs too. as such, air cargo is not so viable for small quantities.

    So what the actual cost total you will incur plus everything?

    Regarding your friend&#39;s boss, if its us who is buying, if any problems will he be willing to help us also?

    Custom made suits are great for odd shape people, but for most, ready made will fit good enough.

    For Indonesian made suits, I&#39;m not so familiar as Indonesia does not seem to be a big player in this market. The bigger Euro companies don&#39;t get their supplies from there. Partly because they are also not well known for being a producer of raw leather.

    I have only seen Indonesian made suits once. At Ideal Motor when they were at they are at their old address. There was this whole row of suits there, collect alot of dust. Apparently no one wanted. I walked closer to see the stitching and material and I could understand why it&#39;s stuck there. The leather is as thin as those cheapo Nankai ones at LAB, and the stitching is single stitching like for normal clothes. Not doubled over and stitched as per industry minimum standards. Then I ask the lady boss and she said it&#39;s from Indonesia.

    welcome dude. Just let us know how much you incur in total plus shipping, custom clearance and GST when you finally get your suit.

    Happy riding&#33;

    1-pc suit:

    - Better crash protection because there&#39;s no waist zip to split.
    - Usually cheaper.
    - You can&#39;t wear it on your Friday nite outing.

    2-pc suit

    - Usually more expensive.
    - More versatile. Top half comes in handy for non-track riding.
    - The waist is a weak spot if you decide to go sliding on your belly.
