Does anyone have any experience with Wolf brand leathers. They have some 100% Kangaroo leathers that are awesome looking just having trouble finding a dealer in the states and someone that can tell me about the quality of them.

www.wolf-moto.com

If I can't find someone to help me on those I think I'll get the MotoGP Kangaroo leathers from www.flatoutmotorcycles.com. They have some awesome prices there if anyone is interested.

Peace out!

That Wolf one piece gun metal, black and white would look awesome on my liquid silver '02. The site kinda sucks for navigation and more detailed photos though.

I don't know about the "Wolf" Brand, but alot of by Racing Buddies use MotoGP Kangaroo Leathers and they have crash them alot and they all have held up very well...

However, the fastest crash test was only done at 55, so I can't say how the Kangroo Leathers will hold up on a high-speed slide...

I slide for about 200 feet starting at about 110 MPH down to 0 MPG :) in my RS Taichi's this season at Gingerman and they held up perfectly...No issues at all with them...

The main thing with Kangroo is that it comes in physically smaller pieces than traditional leather (Roo's are Smaller than Cows) so stiching is very, very important with Roo Leathers, perhaps more so than Traditional Leathers....

As long as the stiching is good, you should be good to go...

Great information!!! Thank you.

MotoGP is my second choice only because they make it in 1 piece. I plan on doing more country riding than track riding so it more convienent to have 2 pieces.

I think MotoGP has a two piece as well. Not sure if Flatout carried them but I know some local retailers carry the jackets here and you can order the pants. But in my case the I can't fit pants off the rack, thus left with a custom setup.

Roo leather may be smaller hide, but, thats what makes it better! It has more abrasive resistance than a cow-hide. It may be thinner but it makes up for it in abrasive-resistance. And like you said stiching is one of the most important, if not THE when it comes to picking a suit.

The motogp one piece suit is amazing. I am 6'2" and 185. Had a hard time finding a suit that fit me right. It fits me like a glove everywhere and is long enough in the body. I bought the cowhide in black, current model, for $650!

I had tried on my friends RS Taichi roo suit a couple weeks ago at the rack and thought it didn t breath as well as cowhide (and I had heard that before).

What size did you get??? I am 6'1" and 205. I've been told to get the 46. I'm wondering if 48 isn't more my size.

Correct, MotoGp does make a 2 piece....but only in cowhide as far as I know.
