The Sparco Eagle RS-8.2 Auto Racing Suit has been redesigned for 2018 and uses a combination of the proprietary Hocotex and Eagle fabrics to produce an ultra lightweight and breathable driving suit. The Sparco Hocotex honeycomb structure is ultra-thin (0.6mm), highly breathable and lightweight (average weight of 290/320pr/m²). Hocotex is the first major change in material production in 20 years and is set to change the way race suits are made in the future providing even higher levels of comfort and performance. Patented by Sparco, the new Hocotex technology has been 3 years in development. The result is a single layer fabric which is able to do what has traditionally required 2 or even 3 layers previously. The new technology creates a honeycomb structure which traps air within the structure allowing a highly breathable material with high levels of flame protection.
Stretch panels in the Eagle fabric are positioned on the underarm, sides and back of the race suit with anti-abrasive material on the legs and arms to ensure that the suit stays good looking for longer. The shoulder epaulets with extraction handles are head and neck restraint device friendly and have been designed to reduce pressure points allowing for maximum comfort.
