New for 2017
The Eagle RS-8.1 is an evolution of the Eagle RS-8. The new Eagle
RS-8.1 features an updated, softer HOCOTEX material. The Eagle
RS-8.1 features an all-new design with six new colorways. The arms
and legs are now pre-curved for more driver comfort.
Single Layer Construction. Three
The Eagle RS-8.1 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-8.1 made in HOCOTEX® is one of the lightest racing
suits in the world. It is comparable to the Sparco
Comfort never felt
Thanks to HOCOTEX®, the Eagle RS-8.1 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-8.1 ultimate
flexibility and comfort. The Eagle RS-8.1 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-8.1 features reinforced arms and
legs with anti-abrasive material.
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-8.1 has over 60,000 microcell air chambers which
provide a 10 to 12% increase in heat protection performance.
The Eagle RS-8.1 is available in six new colorways: White/Red,
White/Blue, Blue/White, Red/Black, Green/Grey and Black/Celeste in
sizes 48-66. The Eagle RS-8.1 is FIA 8856-2000 homologated.
