Well, it is new year.. with a new target on track.. with a new wearpack. My current trusty Ducati red livery two pieces suits has protected me through several major and minor crashes and I must say I am truly satisfied with its performance. Yup, got bruises here and there but nothing major. Remember my big crash at Sentul circuit? The wearpack has protected me while I was crashing at 120 – 140 kph. I was lucky for sure but without the wearpack I’m sure I won’t be that lucky.
Let me tell you about the maker of this wearpack. A local company called AHRS..
If you motorcycle enthusiast, live in Indonesia, nuts about road race or motorcross you must have heard about AHRS already. They specialized in racing products for motorcycle, some they made, some they resell from other manufacturer. As AHRS also a dealer for international brand such as AlpineStar, or Puma. They also has performance shop, simply a one stop shopping for your adrenalin need. Do visit their showroom in Depok and you’ll know what I mean.
Wearpack also AHRS specialty and custom product. You might wonder how does it compare with the well known Dainese or AlpineStar wearpack uses by MotoGP rider. For a start, AHRS costs a fraction of what AlpineStar or Dainese suites cost. AHRS also uses kevlar material (you can opt to not use kevlar, but hey if you love your body better get kevlar), AHRS also uses full grain leather with various thickness, thermoplastic protection, and so forth. And I have tested it crashing in a circuit. So getting a new one from AHRS it a just a logical choice for me.
My new wearpack also a one piece suite. My old two pieces suites is just less convenience and hey… real racer use one piece suite!! AHRS also help me in the design side. I visited their shop in Depok and they showed me intensive collection of design of the wearpack. You can interactively modify, change, alter, etc, and once you happy with the design you sign off for the order.
Oh yeah, wearpack shall only suite for just one man/woman. You! So measuring for wearpack is more elaborate than going to your normal tailor. AHRS will measure your body so they suite will fit like a glove!
It took about two weeks to made, and I can not wait for mine to be ready!
