    Details

    The Eagle RS-8.1 is an evolution of the Eagle RS-8. The new Eagle RS-8.1 features an updated, softer HOCOTEX material. The Eagle RS-8.1 features an all-new design with six new colorways. The arms and legs are now pre-curved for more driver comfort.

    Single Layer Construction. Three Layer Protection.

    The Eagle RS-8.1 is the result of over 3 years of research and development. Sparco has patented a new technology called HOCOTEX® which revolutionizes the way racing suits are made. This new exclusive Sparco technology creates a single layer fabric which has the protection of what is normally achieved by a multi-layer fabric. The Eagle RS-8 is FIA 8858-2000 homologated.

    Lightness and Comfort through Technology

    The Eagle RS-8.1 made in HOCOTEX® is one of the lightest racing suits in the world. It is comparable to the Sparco Superlegerra.

    Comfort never felt before 

    Thanks to HOCOTEX®, the Eagle RS-8.1 is three times more breathable than a suit produced using traditional technology. The use of this relatively thinner fabric along with large side and back stretch panels and 360 degree arm gussets give the Eagle RS-8.1 ultimate flexibility and comfort. The Eagle RS-8.1 uses at new stretch material called Eagle fabric. This Eagle Fabric is lighter, more breathable and abrasion resistant than the traditional stretch material. In addition the Eagle RS-8.1 features reinforced arms and legs with anti-abrasive material. 

    Improved fire resistance

    Traditional racing suits have layers of fabric sewn together with a quilted pattern. The quilting provides air space between the layers which bloats in a fire, this provides thermal protection to the driver. HOCOTEX® creates a honeycomb structure with internal air cells that ensure the driver even more fire protection. Traditional box quilting creates an average of 300 air chambers in a size 52 suit. The Eagle RS-8.1 has over 60,000 microcell air chambers which provide a 10 to 12% increase in heat protection performance.

    The Eagle RS-8.1 is available in six new colorways: White/Red, White/Blue, Blue/White, Red/Black, Green/Grey and Black/Celeste in sizes 48-66. The Eagle RS-8.1 is FIA 8856-2000 homologated.
