Teknic Xcelerator suits are made with a combination of 50% Brazilian cowhide and 50% kangaroo leather. These two different types of leather are designed to provide excellent abrasion resistance and light-weight for maximum protection. The entire leather suit is built around the rider’s needs with Kevlar flex panels in the arms and stretch Cordura panels in the legs to accommodate a wide range of uninhibited motion without sacrificing safety. Seams are put together using Teknic Advanced Seam Construction (TASC) which provides additional rows of stitching below the outer exposed seam reducing the likelihood of two pieces coming apart. This is especially critical in areas where contact with pavement is inevitable in a fall and, to further avoid the risk of seam failure, the shoulders are reinforced on the outside with Teknic Airblade armor with aluminum inserts and aluminum elbow sliders. An added benefit of the Airblade CE-approved shoulder protection is the ventilation aspect as the hollowed-out armor directs air into the suit.

Inside the Teknic suit, you’ll find CE-approved armor in the elbows and knee/shins that’s adjustable for perfect positioning thanks to a hook and loop attachment schema. Each piece of armor has two hinge points built-in, further aiding ease of movement while the tapered edges make them less noticeable to begin with. In terms of protection, each piece of the included CE-approved armor exceeded EC1621.1 thresholds by 30%! CE-approved armor is also available to be fitted into the chest pockets. Further looking after protection is an extra layer of cowhide on the shoulders, elbows, knees, aerodynamic hump and seat. Even the accordion stretch panel at the back of the suit has an extra curtain sewn into its inner side to impart extra abrasion protection.
