Closeout: Spidi T2 Windpro 1pc Leather Suit - $849

Straight off the peg, the Spidi T-2 WindPro leather suit feels like a well-seasoned suit thanks to its excellent cut and a 1.2-1.3mm thick high-quality cowhide chassis. Every aspect of the Spidi T-2 suit was designed with the rider in mind with ideally-placed flex panels and neoprene collars for maximum comfort. This is, in fact, Spidi’s second generation in their T series with improvements being made to the CE-certified protectors as well as the cut of the suit to enhance rider protection and comfort. Provisions for a Spidi Warrior back protector and Spidi Warrior Chest Protector are also included to augment the impact absorbing properties of the suit.

Spidi uses Keprotek stretch panels in areas that are the least likely to contact the ground in a fall. Between these and the supremely supple leather, the suit is flexible and remarkably comfortable.


In areas that require stretch panels, but would be unsafe to use anything but leather, Spidi employs elasticized panels to permit a useful range of movement. Here’s a close-up view of the left shoulder flex panel.


These panels are created by attaching leather to stretched Lycra sheets via rows of stiches and they can be stretched up to twice as long as their resting configuration.


Elasticized leather panels are also used just above the knees …


… and in the lower back.

To keep the rider cool, Spidi employs two approaches. First, and most obvious - are the rows of die-cut perforated leather. Depending on their location, these perforations can be very dense with smaller holes or very sparse with larger holes. This is also done in the interest of safety since more holes means there’s less material to keep the leather together in a sliding type crash.


The front of each Spidi T-2 Wind Pro suit is highly perforated.


The second method Spidi uses to cool the rider comes in the form of a full-length mesh liner. This liner keeps the leather away from the wearer, allowing air to pass through and around the body. It’s also extremely useful at keeping the leather itself from sticking to the skin.


Further enhancing the suit’s ability to keep the rider cool, a pair of intakes have been installed in front of each shoulder where a great deal of air can be expected to enter while the rider is in a full tuck.


A look at how the suit is assembled reveals several rows of stiches in all of the right areas. Various stitching techniques are employed to hide critical seams from exposure to the pavement. Furthermore, some seams are protected by additional layers of leather on the exterior of the suit.


CE-certified impact armor is employed in the shoulders, elbows/forearms, knees and hips to reduce the chance of injury in a fall. In particular, the knee protectors can be moved up or down for a perfect fit over the wearer.


To facilitate the use of Spidi’s Warrior Chest Protector, a separate pocket has been sewn into the front of the suit. This negates any need for straps to hold it in place. We also found it useful for other popular brands of chest protectors like those from Alpinestars or Forcefield Armour.


The back hump is an aspect that the style-conscious rider will truly appreciate. Spidi uses what is simply the largest aerodynamic hump we’ve ever seen on a production leather suit. But the larger size denotes a special use not found on other one-piece leather suits …


The hollowed-out aero hump is Spidi Hydroback-ready, allowing the rider to carry 70mL of fluid with him that’s readily available via a straw that fits neatly onto the collar.


This is the second rendition of the WindPro suit developed by Spidi with input from their top riders in MotoGP.
