Sparco Extrema RS-10 Racing Suit
Protection aside, the Extrema RS-10 is far more breathable than the standard racing suit due to its thin, single-layer construction. The fabric is only 0.6 mm thick - compare this to other top-end suits that measure upwards of 1.6 mm. Plus, the lack of quilting greatly increases comfort by reducing the internal seams within the suit.
WARNING: After receiving this suit, you may be tempted to return it as no suit this thin could POSSIBLY provide adequate fire protection! Rest assured, this suit has surpassed the grueling FIA 8856-2000 test. Please wear with confidence (and comfort!)

Sizing Tips: A Driving Suit should have a loose, comfortable fit and allow for a full range of motion. Make sure the fit doesn't change when sitting down! A suit that fits tightly may sacrifice the protective layer of air between the suit and your skin/underwear and can potentially decrease the level of protection provided by your suit. Driving suits do not "break-in" or stretch over time.
