The Gericke Celtic suit is without a doubt the BEST 1 PIECE LEATHER VALUE GOING! We have staffers, racers and many of our STT riders in this suit. All of the feedback is STELLAR! The suit is fitted with AstroTech armor and has an excellent back protector so there is no need to step up to a replacement back protector straight away. The Celtic suit has proven to serve its wearer well in a crash. We have first hand experience from our staff, customers and racers with crash protection and durability. Both the durability and protection in the event of a crash have proven to be excellent, allowing for continued use after multiple incidents.
I have worn and ridden in this suit and am impressed with the way it feels and moves. I find the fit of the suit to allow full freedom of movement while riding as well as being comfortable in the pits. In this price range the Celtic should be your first choice, we compare this to any $1000 suit on the market.
