i see lots of the celtic suits from STG at the trackdays....
The Celtic suit is an awesome deal. We have sold over 1000 of them.
The reason that the price is so good is because that is our exclusive design and we have them made specificaly for us
with KNOX armor. You are not paying a distributor mark up and we sponsor noone so you don't get stuck paying part os XYZ's freebies. We beleive that 1000 guys riding our suits speaks volumes. BTW, two RoadRacing World staffers ride our Celtic suits and they paid retail for them.
I myself wear full custom (I'm built like a T-Rex...!) and have suits by Z Custom and also full kangaroo suits made by GiaMoto (they do a lot of Moto GP stuff). The Roo suit is awsome, light as a feather and looks awsome (it's Italian so duh.....) BUT it is a one or two crash suit. I bought it knowing that and accept it. I'm not a crasher so I'm cool with that.
Bonnie and I have owned several (like 10) Z-custom suits over the last 12 years and they are bulletproof, shit make that bombproof. I can wear just about any suit I want for free and the fact is I gladly pay full retail for my custom Z suits, they are that good and Z's service is outstanding.
I like having two or three suits because it gives them the opportunity to dry and gives me a spare. I ride 60+ days a season and sweat alot in these puppies.
DON'T skimp on some unknown suit. There are some custom suits out there that "look" good. Wait until a few (like 20 or 30) hit the pavement and then see how good they are. Figuring out you own a POS in the EMS rig is a experience to be avoided and skin grafts suck. As an former downhill skateboarder I know.....
Remember.. ANY suit that does not fit properly will not offer proper protection. Most guys are riding around in suits that are too large and can catch and tear. If your suit feels good walking around it the pits, it does not fit you properly. Remember also sweat (actually the salts in it) are your leathers enemy. Send your leathers to Alexa or Bill annually for a washing and conditioning.
My .02 worth.
