Nowadays, there are a number of requirements on how you must be equipped to enter circuits. For example, you can't ride without a full suit, long-legged boots and road gloves.

As for the materials, practically the only thing they ask for is that your clothes be made of leather (as if that were a sufficient guarantee to be well protected).

We, however, have opted for the alternative: using synthetic fabrics, which are more advanced and have superior qualities in terms of both safety and comfort.

Below we will present cases of motorbike accidents that some of our customers have experienced while wearing Andromeda gear.

 

Antonio Lázaro

Jarama Circuit, Spain

accident stories


Antonio told us privately that he had an accident "at about 90 or 100 km/h, Curve 15 at Jarama".

Luckily he was wearing the NearX suit with AAA protection.

"Good motorcycle suit. What a drag. I didn't even feel the heat."

Andy Herring

Snetterton Circuit, England



Andy (@maximum_lean) wrote of his experience on a bikers Facebook group:

“Certainly saved my ass at Snetterton this week! Me and my bike said hello to the tyre wall. Few busted ribs and impact damage but not a mark on the suit.

It was brake failure. Hit tyre wall at around 40-50mph. Side-on impact. 


Upper fairing smashed and bars are trash... along with footrests.

That bruise is my entire hip area...

Not broken... just cracked. Very lucky boy 😁”

 

Alejandro Sánchez

Ricardo Tormo and Requena Circuits, Spain


Alex (@huevalex) told us that he has had 3 or 4 crashes at Requena and Cheste Karting circuits at speeds between 60 and 70 km/h.

"I use the Meteor gloves often, both for weekend rides and for laps, playing with pitbikes, etc. I've also had some drags with bigger training bikes (Ninja 250).

I still ride them without any problems, no rips, no holes. Obviously with crash marks but 100% functional. I don't know how fast I would go but I reckon around 60-70km/h".

Our recommendation is that when looking for motorbike clothing, you should look at the materials and not just the brand. It is not the same a suit certified with level A (or not even certified) as one that is AAA. Nor are gloves with protection in different parts and Kevlar lining the same level as a glove with hardly any of this.

It is the same with motorbike jackets. Most users are not aware of the existence of certification levels, but there are others who take this into account.

For example, a few months ago some customers deliberately came from the Canary Islands to our shop in Vitoria to try on the Neowise jacket. They said they couldn't find AAA jackets.

If it is motorbike clothing that is not yet certified, look at the characteristics and materials. It is an indication of whether it is premium or not.

If you have had a motorbike accident while wearing Andromeda Moto gear, tell us your story ;)
