Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between the fox launch suit in red or black. Are they different? Does one offer more protection or is it only a color option?
Thanks

Take a look at the new Dainese Gladiator Evo suit. Pricey but the best suit i've ever seen or used. It fills you with confidence and provides amazing protection yet is still fairly light and well ventilated. Plus its comfy to ride with.:thumbsup:

I've used the Pressure Suit and it worked well. No experience with the Fox. I'm a big fan of Rockgardn stuff also, they have a suit called the Flak jacket that looks real nice but I have no experience myself with it, take a look.

I've use the 661 pressure suit. It's saved me from more than one trip to the emergency room. I hit the ground so hard once I cracked the shoulder cup and still rode away with nothing more than some whiplash. I bought the Fox launch suit for my wife and it seemed to have problems staying in place with the elbow pads. Eventually I replaced it for her with the less expensive 661 pressure suit alternative. It seemed more comfy for her & better protection. The fox launch has a huge back protector that seemed to be better protection there but it stuck up in back somewhat making it come in contact with the full face helmet behind the neck and considering that the rest wasn't as good at staying in place I switched. We've both been happy.
