Nine reasonably priced two-piece suits were put through their paces in a direct comparison in the November issue of PS and were given points in the categories of safety, wearing comfort, fit and equipment/manufacturing. With 85 out of 100 maximum possible points, our two-piece leather combination Street 3.0 / Rocket 3.0 came out on top, letting the competitors become smaller in the rearview mirror.
Made of soft cowhide, the jacket and pants combination features a breathable lining, a metal connection zipper and preparations for retrofitting hip and back protectors and tailbone protectors. The jacket shines with two inside pockets, two outside pockets, special ventilation zippers and leather stretch inserts on the shoulders and elbows. In addition, there is a special stretch processed under the armpits and on the inner arm. Perforated leather inserts and a soft collar complete the look. In the pants the stretch inserts sit on the back and knees, the special stretch is used in the crotch and calf area. Soft protectors on the shoulders and elbows in the Street 3.0 jacket protect the rider in an emergency. The pants Rocket 3.0 are equipped with height-adjustable knee protectors and a double leather layer at the buttocks. In both parts of the combination safety seams are used.
The combination is available in 4 different color variants and a special ladies variant and covers a wide range of sizes from 48 – 62. In addition, there are short, long and women’s sizes.
Conclusion of the editors: “Very good – Buy one size larger and everything is fine: fit comfort, mobility and protector equipment please, the Held suit also scores with tourist features such as ventilation and numerous pockets”.
