Pure motor racing feeling with the new BMW Motorrad racing suit.

Munich. To motorcycle racers, the suit is just as
important as the motorcycle itself. The ProRace suits meets the very
highest sporting standards, offering maximum freedom of movement and
the kind of safety features that are indispensable in motor racing.
Using the new online configurator, the suit can be individualised to
create the ProRace Made-to-Measure – a racing suit tailored to the
customer’s personal preferences with an extensive range of
customisation and fittings options. The outfit is rounded off with
ProRace boots and gloves.

Successful American motorcycle racer Nate Kern has been racing
since 2002 and was able to test the suit in advance: “The ProRace suit
is very striking visually – you feel you want to try it on right
away,” says Kern. “It has a wide range of functional options which
include key safety and comfort features. The Made-to-Measure version
has more options than I have ever seen before – including optional
elbow sliders, kangaroo leather and much more besides.”

Lucy Glöckner has been an active motorcycle racer since she was
10 years old and is already wearing her unique suit: “Nowadays,
everyone wants their own individual suit that is more easily
identifiable. I was interested to see how the adaptation process would
work exactly – after all, it’s not at all easy to measure yourself at
first. But the configurator really is very simple to use – my suit
fits perfectly. The protectors are the most important thing for me –
and the ProRace suit has the best ones.”

The close-fitting one-piece suit made of cowhide nappa leather
offers a complete safety packaging in an uncompromising racing
version. The protectors at the shoulders, hips, elbows and knees are
sewn firmly into place. At the knees there are exchangeable sliders
with highly abrasion-resistant velcro fasteners. There are three
alternatives available in terms of back protection. This highly
sensitive area can firstly be protected by means of an NP Pro back
protector using the protector pouch on the back of the ProRace suit.
Alternatively, strap-on protectors, the back protector and the back
protector vest are also available.

In addition to safety, a high level of wear comfort is crucial –
especially when riding in racing conditions. In the ProRace suit this
is ensured by means of numerous stretch inserts that guarantee immense
freedom of movement. The perforated leather sections on the sleeves,
chest area and thighs as well as a 3D spacer fabric in the back area
ensure outstanding ventilation, enabling superb air circulation
throughout the suit. For additional comfort, the ProRace suit is
fitted with an aerodynamic rear hump.

At an additional charge, the suit is available in a lighter and
even more resilient kangaroo leather. Customisation also includes the
option of adding individual team/sponsor logos and inscriptions or
nicknames. Finally, a wide range of BMW Motorrad inscriptions and type
designations such as RR, S 1000 XR, BMW M logo etc. round off the
purebred racing look of the ProRace Made-to-Measure down to the last
detail. As such, all racing needs are met and every specimen is
entirely unique.

Various perforation options are available to do justice to
individual comfort preferences. The additional protection (ribs and
thighs, on the
outside) is optionally available: the protectors
can be selected via the configurator in two different versions –
standard foam or Vibram VPOD thermal foam. A chest protector can also
be integrated in the ProRace Made-to-Measure suit. Meanwhile the
aerodynamic hump on the back can optionally be fitted with a TrinkPak
if required.

The customisable premium one-piece suit can be ordered using the
configurator through authorised BMW partners or online through the BMW
Motorrad licence partner. Apart from the variant Made-to-Measure the
standard version is available in the sizes 46 to 60 and the colours
black, white and red.
