wrist and ankles are raw edge leather construction to reduce the bulk
in your gloves and boots. The ankle zippers and fly zipper have Velcro
closure tab flaps to keep those zippers in the safety locked position.
There is a small license pocket (stamped with the Vanson unit number for
identification) on the wind flap of the jacket for time slips. The
leather end of the waistband on the pants is also embossed with the
Vanson unit number. The unit number allows us to track ownership and
service history of each suit.
It has a nylon mesh lining for comfort and ventilation. An inside access
zipper along the fronts and around the neck allows the lining to be
semi-removable for ease of repair, graphics, maintenance, and cleaning.
As with all of our racing suits we have customizing options that can be added for small additional cost.
The two most asked for options with this suit are the Pro4(4 scale back pad) and Grind. The Pro4 back pad attaches into the jacket with Velcro and can be adjusted for comfort or removed. Grind is a Vanson
exclusive sandwich of extra leather and Power-stretch in the shoulders,
elbow/forearm, hips, knees and seat. The effectiveness of Grind has been
tested at 248mph; if you want to know how it works just ask Korry Hogan
(248 mph) or Chris Hand (225 mph) from Redneck Express. We are the only
company that offers Grind in a drag racing suit.
We have also developed special Thermo Kevlar Heat Shield options for the Top Fuel, Pro Fuel, Pro Drag and Destroyer classes.
Input from many riders has been instrumental in the development of this
suit; we thank Angelle Sampey, Matt Smith, Dave Schultz, Jim McClure,
Steve Johnson, Ian King, and Larry McBride.
