Single Layer Construction. Three
The Eagle RS-8 is the result of over 3 years of research and
development. Sparco has patented a new technology called HOCOTEX®
which revolutionizes the way racing suits are made. This new
exclusive Sparco technology creates a single layer fabric which has
the protection of what is normally achieved by a multi-layer
fabric. The Eagle RS-8 is FIA 8858-2000 homologated.
Lightness and Comfort through
The Eagle RS-8 made in HOCOTEX® is one of the lightest racing suits
in the world. It is comparable to the Sparco Superlegerra.
Comfort never felt
before: Thanks to HOCOTEX®, the Eagle RS-8 is three
times more breathable than a suit produced using traditional
technology. The use of this relatively thinner fabric along with
large side and back stretch panels and 360 degree arm gussets give
the Eagle RS-8 ultimate flexibility and comfort. The Eagle RS-8
uses at new stretch material called Eagle fabric. This Eagle Fabric
is lighter, more breathable and abrasion resistant than the
traditional stretch material. In addition the Eagle RS-9 features
reinforced arms and legs with anti-abrasive material.
resistance: Traditional racing suits have layers of
fabric sewn together with a quilted pattern. The quilting provides
air space between the layers which bloats in a fire, this provides
thermal protection to the driver. HOCOTEX® creates a honeycomb
structure with internal air cells that ensure the driver even more
fire protection. Traditional box quilting creates an average of 300
air chambers in a size 52 suit. The Eagle RS-8 has over 60,000
microcell air chambers which provide a 10 to 12% increase in heat
The Eagle RS-8 is available in four colors: White, Blue, Black and
Red in sizes 48-66. The Eagle RS-8 is FIA 8856-2000
