Gimoto Leathers

Morning all,
I was looking at some bespoke Gimoto leathers yesterday, they look fantastic, stunning quality and for a change, are made to measure in Italy. I just wondered if anyone either owns a set of their leathers or has any feedback. They are the best leathers I have seen at the price point so far, grateful for any info on the brand.

Cheers,
Martin

I wear a brand new VT-6 on measure Gimoto one piece leather suit.

It is a really great product, fit like a second skin, and very comfortable on the bike.

Communication with the factory is very quick and kind.

Price is around 1100 EUR in cow leather.

You can't be wrong by bying one. Measure are really easy to take by yourself. You chose your colors and many other options and around three weeks later you receive your suit home.

All the process can be made on their web site.

Hope this help !

I have a custom kangaroo gimoto suit. Aero hump hollowed out for a camel back.
The quality is excellent. I would highly recommend getting measured by the actual dealer, though. I was measured by a seamstress at a tailor and my suit came back a little too tight. It loosened up enough so that I can now wear it, but I would still like slightly less constricting measurements.

I would definitely buy from them again. Next time I would add:
Better access to the aero hump for putting the camel back in.
Another pocket on the inside - maybe in the stomach area. Chest pockets seem weird to me. My phone will likely break my ribs if I wreck with it in my chest pocket.
I think that's it - Everything else is perfect.

Here are some pics:


You can see it's pretty tight in a tuck


Butt panels are completely stretched in a tuck.






You can see I wear a mountain bike jersey over it to keep it clean. It's easy to throw the jersey in the washer. Harder to clean the leather.

Weenie! You're obviously overweight! Eat less, work out..

I'll now go and wrestle myself into my new Hideout kangaroo onepiece, now with back protector... I'm always afraid I have to call help to get me out again! But it doesn't pinch, it just fits really closely...

The Gimoto suit looks good, but my main concern would be how well do these suit handle a crash. There was a review done on youtube by Sportbiketrackgear.com on the Gimoto suit, but I can't remember the outcome.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

That's a strangely cut suit from behind Mike...looks far too tight around your butt, and really loose on the arms and shoulders....??
Is that a brand new suit, it looks really retro. Does it have shoulder armour ??

I'm not sure how you're going to sit on an F4 with leathers that tight across the old backside ...LOL
Better you than me !!!!

Cryptyk..nice lookin suit. Keep wearing it...it will stretch:-)I like Gimoto's gear

Of course it does! CE approved soft armour everywhere.

And yes it's in some areas but it'll bed in, and then will need some final alterations to make it perfect.

The design is what I like. It's not flashy, I try to act my age...
