Sparco is the first manufacturer in the world to have two suit models (KS-5 and KS-3) that are ready ahead of the new CIK-FIA N 2013-1 homologation. The two new suits provide a standard of protection higher than the previous level, since the tests imposed by the new homologation are stricter than the previous tests. Also the new suits will be valid for 5 years instead of the 3 years under the current CIK-FIA 2001-1 homologation (which expires 12/31/16).
The new KS-5 karting suit is aggressively styled and designed for safety and comfort. Made from abrasion-resistant fabric, the KS-5 features half-floating sleeves and strategically placed stretch panels and elastic for increased mobility. The KS-5 has internal leg and underarm vents for better breathability and a soft cotton terry inner liner for comfort. It features high-contrast accents and boot cuff pant legs for ultimate style. Available in black/grey/black, red/white/black, blue/white/black, black/grey/celeste or black/grey/yellow in both children and adult sizes. The KS-5 is CIK-FIA 2013-1 approved
