Hello,
i have been looking around the store because i wanted to buy a suit unfortunately they dont have my size they have small but it doesn't fit on me the knee caps protector is below my knee when i tried it. so i was wondering if any of you guys recommend me a good store or website with a good quality.
the reason i wanted it i feel that it gives me more protection that the two piece.


BTW i am only 5'1


thanks and God bless.

Give them a call and they'll be able to recommend a suit that will fit you in your price range. Often times they'll have closeouts with only the small sizes left so you might be able to snag a deal on a suit you normally couldn't afford.

Did you get on a bike or into a riding position? That makes a HUGE difference. I'll assume you did, but at least for the education of others who might look at this thread later, the comment needed to be made

You should seriously look into getting a suit custom made for you. I've got an off the rack suit and it fits good but I did have to have it altered to give me a bit more room in the chest. Was much to tight once I put a back protector in it.

Which is another thing, wear everything your going to wear under the suit when you try it on. If you "think" you might add a back protector or hip armor or chest armor make sure you have it when you buy the suit. Mine if fine when I bought it but add a an 1" thick back protector and it became much to tight.

In the end, a good custom made suit will fit perfectly and last as long or longer than a off the rack suit from any of the major manufacturers. And they don't really cost much more than a race suite from RS Taichi, Alpinestars or Dainese.
