The Speedway suit is our forte and has helped us define a style of design and ingenuity unlike any of our competitors. For more than ten years the current legends of US and European Speedway have been wearing NJK. 2000 World Champion Mark Loram, two time US National Champion Chris Manchester, Josh Larsen, and nearly every National Champion since 1991 have all worn NJK Leathers. The Speedway suit is geared toward the bullring ovals of the USA where brakeless machines are ridden by some of the most outrageous riders to be found.
This suit comes in many materials and designs… the combinations are limitless. Leather, Kevlar, and Nylon are the base materials that a Speedway suit is constructed from. Complete suits can be made from any of these materials, as well as hybrids of two or three materials. The Leather suit offers the most abrasion protection; the Kevlar suit offers the most stretch and flexibility; and the Nylon suit is the lightest and typically the most colorful. The suits without leather are capable of being washed in the washing machine and air dried.
Design is virtually limitless. Classic Speedway designs involve straight lines similar to that of vintage flat track. Recently our design elements have ventured into flames, barbed wire, flowing waves, lightning bolts, jagged breaking pieces, and anything else that a rider might can envision.
The Speedway suit can have any of the protective gear that the rider desires. Road style armor is an option, but generally soft pads are the norm. Placement of these pads can be (but is not limited to) elbows, shoulders, knees, and seat. Kill switch tab D-rings adorn the right lower sleeve… the left leg clutch grinding pads are also included.
Speedway suits start at $750 and include the following:
Additional options include perforated leather, hybrid construction using more than one of our material types, lettering, design, additional Kevlar and accordion stretch panels, and two piece configurations.
