Teknic Chicane Race Suit
Excellent one piece suit for the price!
I purchased this suit for my first track day and was worried about fit as I'm 6'2", 215lbs. muscular build. I paid close attention to the fitment chart and to my surprise the fit was spot on (US48). I've only been able to wear it a couple of times but so far it's been great, instills plenty of confidence while riding and seems to be of great quality as well. I'd put this suit far above the others in the same price point, get em while you can!!

I am 6'3" 210 pounds and the size 50 fits me perfectly, little tight but i like it like that. As far as the protection aspect i dont know yet as i have not gone down. But it does seem as good if not better than my old alpinestars suit..

Can't go wrong with this suit!!
High quality product, there is no downside with this suit. Leather, armor, and ventilation are all very good. Most importantly, have done 12 track days with suit so far this year, and unlike some other suits purchased by friends in my riding group, the seams, liner and zippers of this suit all work like new. Sizing runs small, I went one size up from largest measurement of all measurements taken (chest, waist, inseam, etc.) and am happy with fit.

Great for the money but
I'm 5'-10" and 195lbs. My waist is 44" and the sizing chart was a bang on for everything else but it was tight in the groin area so I was a little surprised. Everyone was telling me that it will stretch so I kept it. Also from what I understand you want the suit to fit tight so the protection isn't moving out of place when you hit the ground. Other than that its a great fit! One other note is that for a track day the back protector that comes with the suit was not acceptable at the race track. It has to be a hard shell back protector which was an addition $150. Just an FYI if your tight on budget.

Great value suit. Perfect for track day fun.
I'm 6 foot tall and weigh 120kg so I did a lot of research before purchasing this suit. I already have a Teknic jacket in size 48 and after reading everything I could find I made the wise choice of going one size up, 50, for the full suit.
Luckily I did as I think this size is perfect for me. It is still a little snug from crotch to shoulders when in the standing position but you have to expect that, especially as I have a little extra girth than the rider this suit was designed for. In the riding position though it is simply awesome. I think if I drop 5 or 6kg it will be even better.
As for the suit itself I have no complaints. It isn't a top of the line race suit so you have to expect it not to have all the bells and whistles but on a price vs features comparison, you really can't go wrong with this.
I'm in Australia and even including shipping I saved at least $100 maybe more. And as for shipping speed, wow, 5 days from order to delivery. I've never had that kind of speedy delivery from the USA before. Absolutely brilliant and there's no doubt I'll be ordering again.

Great value and seems to be well made.
I may have been able to drop a size around the waist (belly), but shoulder to crotch length wouldn't permit. Suit breaths well at speed and has been surprisingly comfortable. New level of protection is welcome!!!

This is not the first teknic suit i have owned. This suit has great features and ventilation. Teknic stepped up the quality of the chicane suit to a whole new level for this price range. The suit has a little more relaxed fit compared to a full on race suit.

Great Suit from Teknic
This really is a great piece for an entry level suit from Teknic. I have tried on the previous generations of the Chicane and they have really stepped it up from those years. The leather feels much better than what others offer for the price and the stretch panels are placed very well. First time I wore it was at the track and after corner one I didn’t even notice it, I find that extremely important in new suit. The last thing you want is to lean off the bike and the suit hold you up. Very comfortable.
I am 6’ 200lbs and wear a A* bionic vest underneath (back and chest protector) and the size 46us is a great fit. It is a little tight in the shoulder to crotch length when walking around, but in crouch position it fits just right, as a proper track suit should. It would be nice to see some hard shoulder protection as on the higher end models, but for the price point I really can fault this suit. The sliders won’t last long if you plan on tracking this suit, very thin and not the greatest material, not a big issue though.
