Full Lightweight Karting Gear
Question:

I will be buying my first kart in january and racing in puerto rico, so I need to buy suit,gloves,boots and helmet
Is there a way of ordering online to get the correct sizes as sometimes I am a large or an XL, maybe give you chest waist and inside leg for example
Also being in PR its very hot so will need lightweight equipment!
Answer:


Karting Suit:

My current favorite suit is the Oakley - Kill Switch 2 Karting Suit. It's light weight, looks cool, and is more reasonably priced than most of the Alpinestars stuff. I'd put you in a size 58 based on your dimensions. (You can double check here if you'd like.) We have both Silver and Black available in this size.

Here are some other suits across the price range you could look at as well:
Low:  K1 - Level 1 Karting Suit in Large/X-Large
Mid:  K1 - Evo X Level 2 Karting Suit in Large/X-Large
High: Alpinestars - KMX-1 Karting Suit in 58


Karting Gloves:


I'll stick with Oakley on the accessories as well- they're very popular and would match the original suit: Oakley - Karting Gloves. I'd go with an X-Large size in these.

Other options:
Low: K1 - Reflex Karting Gloves in Large
High: Alpinestars - Tech 1-K Gloves in Large


Karting Shoes:


Karting Helmet:


Lots of great options on helmets. Really depends on the look you want and your budget!

Low: Vega - Mach 1 Helmet - Closeout in X-Large
Low:  G-Force - Eliminator Helmet in X-Large
Mid: Scorpion - Exo 700 Series Helmet in X-Large
Mid/High: Bell - K.1 Sport Helmet in X-Large
High:  Bell - GTX.2 Helmet in X-Large
