SPIDI has a full lineup of new riding gear built for everything from trails to track that will be available through its distributor, WPS.

Highlights include the Hard Track suit, an Adventure Touring piece that features three different layers that allow riders to go from icy mornings to blazing afternoon heat.

The water repellent outer layer is built to stop the weather and be flexible and comfortable, the manufacturer says. The suit has Forcetech protectors in the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees, and a chest and thorax protector. Multiple intakes keep the air flowing while five pockets allow for serious storage.

The second layer is made from H2Out and is windproof, waterproof and breathable.

The third, inner layer has aluminized insulation and is padded to keep out the cold. The Hard Track suit comes in M-3XL in ice/black, black and dark green.

Spidi also has unveiled the Track and Wind pro suit in replica colors for racers Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow. Built from cowhide full-grain leather that is 1.2mm-1.4mm thick, the suit is said to have a high-level of fitment because of flexible materials, neoprene inserts and meshed pars.

There are certified EN 1621-1 protectors in the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. It also has an EN 1621-3 chest protector and an EN 1621-2 level 2 back protector.

Double reinforced layers of leather and shock absorber materials make up the shoulders, elbows, arms, lumbar part, sacral area, and knees. The suit can be custom tailored.
