REV'IT! Excellerator Race Undersuit
nice piece with some thought put into it
this is a well made under suit. it flows a lot of air and has some great features like the grip pads on the shoulders. the foot loops are a little big and would work back toward my heal but nothing bothersome. the side zipper is a good idea but unfortunately I have a messed up collar bone on that side so the zipper ended up right on top of it.

REV'IT! Excellerator Race Undersuit
Very comfortable, it makes getting in and out of my race leathers night and day better. With the finger loop and under the foot strap there is no bunching up when I put on my leathers. The only gripe I have is if you are not careful when putting on this suit you can hear it tearing. Time will tell how well they hold up.

A Bit Quirky
This suit has (2) zippers, one across the chest and one at groin level. There is a full stop between them, meaning that the upper, 'get into it' zipper is much shorter than it could be. This makes getting the suit on more difficult than if it were made with a single full lenght zipper. I don't like this feature. I wear size Euro 50 leathers. I ordered this suit in 48; once on the size and fit are perfect for me. I am sure the seams are not going to last due to the degree of streching necessary to get in to it. The split zipper is a bad idea. I checked the 'recommend' box but...I'm not sure.

Respectable Undersuit for the Price
Fitment & styling are really nice. Fits true-to-size. I'm 5'6" 147lbs, athletic build, and I wear a size 38 race suit. Size Small fits me perfectly. It wicks sweat & flows air nicely, and doesn't get stinky- even after a hot, summer ride. It's easy to wash (cold cycle in washer), and it's easy to get in & out of, once you learn how to peel it off your shoulders, which is key. My only dislike is that the little black pattern pieces on the upper torso flake off over time- esp if you wear a back & chest protector. Those black pieces are purely cosmetic, but it does makes a flaky mess. I ended up spending 30 min peeling them all off to get it over with.

Looks great, fit is on the small side
I'm 6' 2" @ 205 and went with the XL. My main concern with racewear is that it isn't restricting, but also not baggy. This undersuit fits me fine (tight), EXCEPT in the pit of the neck to crotch length which feels (looks) a little short and also rides up my Posterior. However, as the material is sheer and does stretch I don't see it as being a big problem when I'm in my leathers and on the bike. I've thought of trading it in for an XXL, but the length everywhere else is fine and I worry the XXL would just be too large. I also own some armored shorts and have thought of wearing them over the undersuit, though taking a leak would be difficult..and at 50 that's something to think about.

Awesome design. Go one size higher
Design is awesome. I am usually between size Medium and Large in undersuits dependimg on the brand, so I went with Large with the Rev'it. However it did not fit so I had to exchange it for an XL.

Excellent under-suit. Makes it possible to get in and out of a properly fitting one piece suit.
I visited the Philadelphia showroom to buy a one piece suit, boots, gloves, etc. I asked the salesman who helped me to recommend an under-suit to buy before trying on the other equipment. I'm 5'9", 160 lbs, slim build. The medium size lightweight EXCELLERATOR is a good fit and a great suit. The suit has thumb loops and stirrups so that the suit doesn't bunch up on your arms and legs as you squirm into a snug-fitting one piece racing suit. When wearing the under suit under my one piece suit, I don't get as hot and sweaty feeling as without it. However, the big advantage is being able to slip out of my leathers more easily after a hot session on the bike. I haven't had the under suit long enough to address durability but I hope it lasts forever.
