Freshly updated, the next generation Sparco Eagle RS-8.1 racing suit keeps the same super-lightweight Hocotex material originally debuted in the popular Extrema suit. Hocotex is an innovative fire-retardant textile with a multi-layer weaving that meets and surpasses FIA 8856-2000 requirements. With the thickness and feel of a single-layer suit, Hocotex utilizes an intricate honeycomb structure that creates thousands of protective microcapsules throughout the suit fabric.
The Eagle RS-8.1 updates this technical masterpiece with 6 stylish new color options, and a lighter weight, more durable sandwich in high wear areas in the arms and legs. Lightweight and strong Eagle stretch fabric has been incorporated into the back and arms for increased mobility, while pre-curved arms offer an extremely comfortable and ergonomic fit. The streamlined epaulettes smartly hide the driver extraction handles and allow for increased comfort when wearing a head and neck restraint system. The modern styling keeps classic Sparco features like internal pockets and a traditional suit belt for a look that is a hit for all generations of drivers.

Sizing Tips: A Driving Suit should have a loose, comfortable fit and allow for a full range of motion. Make sure the fit doesn’t change when sitting down! A suit that fits tightly may sacrifice the protective layer of air between the suit and your skin/underwear and can potentially decrease the level of protection provided by your suit. Driving suits do not “break-in” or stretch over time.
