One Piece SpitfireFOL025 1 Review
The MotoGP-inspired track suit
Certified protection at shoulders, elbows, knees
Unique, all-new embossing technique included
Improved position of PWR|Kevlar stretch panels
The all-new Spitfire one piece is like no other racing suit currently available. That’s because of an all-new embossing technique that allowed us to up the ante in terms of looks and style. The embossed Monaco cowhide panels perfectly balance with the matte finished Monaco performance cowhide, giving the Spitfire—and you—a distinctive appearance. CE-rated armor, including SEESMART™ hip protection, comes standard, while our MotoGP-developed dual comp sliders are incorporated into the shoulders, elbows and knees. Adjustable protection at the shoulders and knees allows you to optimize the fit according to your body, comfort and position on the bike. Through feedback from our MotoGP riders, we have improved the position of the PWR|Kevlar stretch panels, offering you the highest level of freedom of movement. The partially perforated outer shell, removable mesh inner lining and aero cool 3D mesh at the back together ensure you will keep cool when corner speeds and track temperatures go up. Sizes 44-56
COMPLETE YOUR LOOK
The stitching in motorcycle garments contributes greatly to the abrasion resistance of the total gear. This is why REV'IT! uses safety seams on garment areas at increased risk of impact. Safety seams have a visible as well as an invisible seam. This construction keeps the material of the outer shell together, even when the visible seam is thorn.
Betac® CE Protection
The Betac® protection in our suits is the same as our heroes use in professional racing series such as MotoGP. They are CE rated for the highest level of protection. The use of Velcro makes sure they are fixed to the outer shell, preventing them from moving or turning in case of an impact.
adjustable Betac® CE protection at shoulder
This MotoGP spec protector is adjustable on the shoulder, making it possible to customize the fit of the protector to the position on the bike. Thanks to the strong Velcro it will stay in place once positioned.
adjustable Betac® CE protection at knees
This MotoGP spec protector is fully adjustable for the leg thanks to its extremely strong Velcro, in order to customize the position for each rider. This results in the best personal fit and riding comfort.

double leather seat
The seat of your garment is a critical impact zone. To prevent the stitches from tearing, we reinforce the leather seat, giving you two layers of protection.
dual-comp knee slider type A
Dual-comp knee sliders type A are constructed from a high-performance TPU compound, combined with an extra durable PA6 compound. Specially designed for racers who want high-performance sliders, these higher-quality compounds offer good feedback, giving you maximum durability without compromising your feel on the road. The sliders come in a pair of two, each anatomically shaped to fit either the left or the right knee, and high-quality Velcro attaches the sliders to leathers, ensuring they stay where they need to. Type A sliders are available in three colours, to fit every colour combination of your leathers, and the dual-injected colours keep the design visible even when the sliders begin to wear.
TPU aluminium protector at shoulders, elbows, and knuckles. The dual-comp protector consists of a 3D, pre-shaped honeycomb structure of TPU material, topped by an aluminium high-impact shield, for ultimate sliding. This lightweight hard part increases the level of protection significantly, without adding the considerable weight of traditional plastic hard parts. When fighting G-forces, every gram counts! Under the shoulder and elbow parts is ergonomically shaped, CE-approved armour, perfectly placed to maximize impact-resistance while preserving freedom of movement.
prepared for SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector insert - Type RV
The back protector pocket in this REV'IT! garment is tailor-made to accommodate the SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector insert Type RV - an easy upgrade to maximize safety.
Stitching seams can be the weakest link in motorcycle garments, as they can rip upon impact. This ripping of seams can be prevented, however, through safety-stitching technology. REV’IT! uses safety stitching on garment areas at increased risk of impact (directive on the definition of risk category in zones 13595-1:2002).
Lorica® is constructed from microfibres that give the material characteristics similar to those of natural leather, including a leather look. This low-maintenance material is not as strong as leather, but softer and lighter, with a consistent thickness that makes it easier to process.
Monaco Performance cowhide
This top-grain leather not only has had its surfaces sanded to correct imperfections, it has been reinforced to up its performance factor for riding on the track or street. Long-lasting and extremely protective.
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber useful for protective gear. It is abrasion-resistant, chemical-resistant, waterproof, somewhat stretchable, and buoyant.
This PWR|shell stretch material has aramide and nylon fibres for extra strength.
aero cool 3D mesh
This open-loft three-dimensional mesh helps facilitate optimal ventilation while riding. It features integrated lines to wick moisture away from the body, keeping riders cool and comfortable under even extreme circumstances.
- calf zippers
- comfort cuffs
A removable, washable mesh lining with stretch inserts for more comfort.
- stretch lips
The stretch panels in this garment aid in flexibility. They contribute to the riders comfort as they provide great freedom of movement.
- race fit
- inner pocket
- partly perforated outer shell
VCS | speed hump
The REV’IT! ventilated speed hump has an air inlet at the top of the hump. The perforated foam inside this leather speed hump is designed to let air flow through the garment, spreading over the rider’s back for comfortable ventilation. Extra cooling of the area is especially beneficial now that riders are wearing back protectors more and more.
Had a crash with this suit at the track at around 130kph. It's still very usable.
Cuffs and cuff zippers are probably what I dislike the most, they seem overly bulky when trying to fit your full cuff gloves over.
All in all great suit!
