Please do not dry under direct sunshine, and never dry with the dryer. If you do so, the leather will be shrink and gets hard. It won't return to the original quality once it gets hard. Please take moisture with a dry towel as much as possible at shade.
Further we recommend to spread mink oil when it is not completely dried condition, and wearing once is better. It is because shrinking can be prevented by wearing.
Q08. Is it safe though there is only one needlework string is seen?
We use many way of stitching according where to sew when making leather suits. Refer to sort of stitching
Even only a single line of stitch is seen, there are another stitch under the surface.
This helps the string not to be worn by the friction against the road. It is a method of raising needlework strength without putting out the seam, and the best needlework method for the leather suit. How to sew is used properly by the leather suit part of RS TAICHI, and safety is pursued.

RS TAICHI leather suits uses Scholler  
Keprotec Fabrics for the cloth part. We carefully choose where to use this fabric from the data of where it is not damageable when crashing. The use of  Scholler Keprotec enables the ease of movement.
Q11. What is the hump on back for?
We call it a neck support. It is for better protection for your neck when crashing and for better air flow. This is often seen at the race tracks these days, and we have many leather suits with this neck support on full ventilated leather suits in the line up. Of course it is possible to add neck support for off the rack suits which is without hump when ordering customized leather suits as an option.
