Vanucci Art XVI Leather Suit, One Piece
Manufacturer details: Vanucci
The premium brand from Louis
The Vanucci name is synonymous with premium motorbike clothing for sports and touring bikers who value the highest quality. The collection includes everything from enduro suits for travelling round the world and sporty leather suits for speedy laps of the race course, through to neck warmers and touring boots. Whether you prefer leather or textile, every Vanucci garment offers high-quality materials and high-tech features, such as Sympatex and Outlast, combined with distinctive Italian styling plus all the experience and passion of designer Enrico Vanucci. The same applies to the intelligently designed and sturdy Vanucci luggage systems.
There are around 48 different species of kangaroo, some of which are protected. However, the population of the huge Macropus giganteus kangaroo has grown so rapidly that it has become a real pest. This is why it is permitted to shoot this animal with a trapper's licence from the Australian government and to export it subject to the terms of the Washington Convention on endangered species (CITES).
A special dying technique ensures that our kangaroo leather is absolutely colour-fast, while a special tanning process makes it highly resistant to moisture and sweat.
Normal leather becomes hard and brittle and shrinks when exposed to the wet, and in particular to perspiration. Kangaroos do not sweat through their skin, but only under their tail and on their tongue. So the surface of a kangaroo skin has no pores, and this also affects the fibre structure. While the fibre structure of cowhide becomes slightly looser when subjected to stress, it remains more tight-knit in kangaroo leather.
Most traditional, high-quality outer material with cult status for motorcycle clothing and accessories. Unmistakable in its natural, high-quality look, the strong image, ideally suited to both figure-hugging and highly functional designs. The biker's "second skin" still has the edge over any textile material when it comes to safety and resistance to abrasion and tearing. The way the material stretches as the clothing is worn means that leather clothing adapts to the body contours ideally, thus also guaranteeing that protectors fit optimally. Leather clothing should therefore always be bought with a close fit. Impregnation, leather oil and surface coatings guarantee good weather protection and a degree of rainproofing, but unfortunately also limit the breathability. Relatively heavy, but enthusiasts value this as a "quality feature". Looked after properly, it is very durable. Because leather does not itself offer much thermal insulation, the other features of the garment, or the base layers of clothing, must provide some help here.
Very high-quality blended fabric of Cordura and Kevlar for reinforcing impact points. Offers very good protection against heat and friction. A polyurethane coating guarantees resistance to weather. Rough, textured look.

The Vanucci designers focused on offering maximum comfort without compromising on protection or aerodynamics. The aim was for the suit to feel like a second skin, with nothing impeding the biker's freedom of movement or his concentration as he approaches the next bend.
And you can feel this in every detail of the design: the clever cut of the suit, the precisely positioned stretch zones, super-comfortable neck and cuffs, and the sophisticated ventilation system.
The use of extremely tear-resistant kangaroo leather at key points not only gives added protection, but also makes this suit lighter and more supple.
And, last but not least, the great care in manufacture and the timeless, dynamic design make the ART XVI a dream motorbike suit that will give you many years of great service.
