Teiz Motorsports One Piece Riding Suits - Official Thread

As reported on WebBikeWorld here: http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcyc...age-2.htm#teiz

Manufacturer's site here: http://teizms.com/

Lots of features to be sure, but I'm also a firm believer in that old nugget "You gets whats you pay for". Looking forward to the WBW review of this suit. What say ye?

If it's got the materials it says it has and the stitching it says it has, I'd buy one.

I don't remember the old cordura being made in 600/1680 denir form though.
Too bad ever since DuPont sold the Cordura name to Invista, they've been plastering it on everything now.

I can see them being able to make that price if t is more or less direct from the factory. The old FS highland suit was 329.

Having that many features can hide the fact that smaller pieces of fabric are used. Using the older style armor will help on price too.

Seems too good to be true, but I will wait with anticipation too.

The WBW posting references the suit in high-viz colors. At this time, the website showing the Cordura suit in black and the mesh suit in red. I would be curious to see how this stacks up to my Olympia Phantom in neon.

Hell, if that 'd' saves me $200+ on a suit, I don't care what it says.

I'm sure 15 minutes with an exacto or stitch ripper will take care of that problem

Yeah, but if they can even get that right what else is going to be fucked up on this thing.

I really like that mesh suit on their website. I'll be eagerly awaiting the review from Webbikeworld.

honestly this suit looks pretty decent. I've never even heard of tiez but I'd love to see this in person. If it's easy on/off this seems like a great commuter get up. Even has knee pucks??

I also believe in you get what you pay for though. Which is why I'd be skeptical until I saw and tried on one to see what's really going on.

Has anybody made contact with them and asked about sizing???

I'm a short (like really really short) fat guy. Motoport is my choice of summer suit, but that's a thousand bucks.....

I'll chance a 'Translate to FAST' $300 suit if they can fit a 5' 2" fat boy.

(Kevlar lined jeans and a Cortech mesh jacket may not be enough for my antics on the road.....)

I'll buy the mesh -

even though I don't like red.

For $249, even if it's okay, I'll be happy.

It does seem to have too many features. A little feature happy.

I need a mesh outfit. The Dainese Fluxus 2-pc is a fortune, plus it's made for skinny Italian dudes. Barely fits over my gut, and I'm not what you'd call fat. Also, I want to buy the Rev It Infinity, but that's $1,300. In California, with tax, that's $1,400 OTD.

Rhys - there's a guy on www.bayarearidersforum.com making custom 1pc leathers for $425. He'll fit your size. I think his website is www.tilt.com

Good luck.
