The Prime SP-16 is an ultra-lightweight professional race suit from Sparco and is one of the lightest 3 layer suits currently available, weighing less than 240/270 gr/m2. The smallest weight saving details such as a lighter, slimmer zip, lighter wrists and ankles, neck and shoulders all help to reduce weight to ensure weight savings down to the very last gram. Ultra-thin stitching on all decorative items and thinner stitching on structural components with a flat stitching pattern. The Prime SP-16 racing suit features floating sleeves and stretch panels on the back made from a light, breathable fabric. The outer layer is a double face mesh made from original DuPont Nomex comfort fabric which contains a high percentage of anti static fibres which provide extremely efficient anti-static properties. With valuable experience gained from F1 an FHR device friendly shoulder epaulette is designed to reduce pressure during racing, with the integrated handles aiding extraction.
