Cortech Apex V1 Race Suit Review: Product Details and Quality

The suit’s 3D mesh lining is supplemented with opposing perforated panels in the back, which help to exhaust body heat and sweat. At this pricing point, hard sliders at the shoulders and elbows are exceptionally unusual, replicating the design and utility of top-tier race suits. Shoulders, elbows, and knees all provide impact protection.

Exterior knee sliders are featured, and they work in conjunction with a huge hook and loop connection panel to provide optimal flexibility. The best Apex V1 Race Suit contains a pocket for an optional back protector insert or may be worn alone with a harness type back protective system.

Our Opinion On Cortech Apex V1 Race Suit

When it comes to sport/track leathers under $400, this may be the only track-specific leather jacket (with matching pant option) for both men and women at this budget. Track-ready leather at $300 is practically unheard of, and it instantly adds to the Cortech Apex V1 jacket’s remarkable value.

In the shoulders and elbows, CE Level 1 impact protection is adequate. However, the back protector is omitted and must be purchased individually. In impact zones, hard TPU on shoulders and elbows encourages a slide rather than a tumble or ripping of materials.

In the event of a slide, a comprehensive zipper attaching to pants provides 360-degree torso protection and is even mandated at most tracks. The Cortech Apex V1 is the most excellent bargain for a track-level leather jacket at $299 (before the optional back protection).
