All-new racing suit from Richa

Finish the 2021 racing season – or get set for 2022 – with the all-new racing suit from Richa – the Barracuda.

The Barracuda is a mid-season racing leather suit featuring Richa’s high-performance pro-shell outer made from 1.3-millimetre-thick cowhide leather with strategically placed stretch fabric inserts for a comfortable fit in non-exposed areas. The outer feature perforations across the chest, arms, hump and bottom legs to provide enhanced ventilation throughout the suit, and there’s a soft neoprene fabric collar finish to avoid rubbing when wearing a helmet. Inside, there is a climate-control polymesh lining that allows heat to easily dissipate, along with a soft, skin-to-skin feel for optimal comfort.

For ultimate track protection against abrasion and impact, the Barracuda suit features Richa knee sliders that attach via Velcro patches, so can easily be replaced once worn, and D3O® protection on the shoulders and elbows. Riders can add optional hip and back protectors and the Barracuda suit is fully compatible with the D3O® Viper L1 and L2 armour. In high-risk areas, there’s additional safety stitching on high risk zones.

The racing hump on the upper back not only provides optimal aerodynamics, but also provides additional neck support, and there is also external shoulder protection in an aerodynamic shape to achieve that sporty look.

With adjustment zippers on the cuff and ankle, the Barracuda suit is easy to put on and take off, and all zippers, including the central chest closure, are strong and sturdy YKK® zippers for ease of use. There’s one inner pocket for storage of personal possessions and for comfort, the collar is finished in a soft neoprene fabric.

Now available in UK dealers, the Richa Barracuda suit has an RRP from £499.99. Available in a choice of black or black/red, the suit is available in sizes 36-58.
