RS Taichi Blast Evo
Retail 1399
Buy 600

Spidi Proto One
Retail 1399.95
Buy 700


Which one would you buy based on quality....not worried about looks, so that's why I'm not posting pics.

I've had good luck with my Spidi stuff. Crashed three times in my Parsek jacket/Multi pants and once in my current Norick suit with no issues.

I'd say it's a toss-up. I have been happy with my Spidi Hook (lower-end in the Spidi line) suit, but I know RS Taichi is top-shelf stuff.

What he said. I was in the market 3 yrs ago, and it came down to the RS Taichi Blast Evo or Alpinestars Haga suit. I got a smoking deal on the Alpinestars so I went with that. With that said, RS Taichi is top quality. Their gloves are worth it as well.

I notice the spidis use 1.2 leather and the Taichis use 1.5 leather....hmmm

Can also get the
sliderwind, the viper pro,
slider prof for very good price...


Man I hate making these decisions....

My final word...go with the Taichi. Just be cautious of sizing, I hear they run a bit smaller than most other brands.

I'm just getting sick and tired of your indecisiveness. You're worse than a damn woman in a clothing store. "But this one makes my ass look fat"..."But this one will go better with these shoes"..."But this one flushes my skin tones out"..."But I can wear this one to work or to dinner"...

P.S. Yes, I do realize that this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. :rotfl:

Do what I do...hold the phone to your ear and pretend you're talking to someone.

Honestly, I'd give Trackoholic a jingle and ask about his Kushitani stuff. He gets excellent prices on the stuff, and it's durable. That's what my next suit will be :thumb:

I would but with having to repair the F4 along with buying new leathers, helmet gloves I don't think I can spend the extra $$ that it'd cost.....

RS Taichi was one of my best suits of all time. Just hard to find these days and take's a while to have custom made.

Thanks for the opinion....based on your experience (and maybe some of Pete's smart a$$ remarks) and others I've decided on the Taichi. :thumb:

Ordered the Taichis along with a pair of Kushitani GPR4 gloves. Now the agonizing wait for delivery.

Let me know how the leathers fit when you get them. I may just get me some Taichis. :thumb:
