Sparco Eagle RS-8.2 Fire Suit

Single Layer Construction. Three Layer Protection.

The Eagle RS-8.2 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-8.2 is FIA 8856-2000 homologated.

Lightness and Comfort through Technology

The Eagle RS-8.2 made in HOCOTEX® is one of the lightest racing suits in the world. It is comparable to the Sparco Superleggera.

Comfort never felt before

Thanks to HOCOTEX®, the Eagle RS-8.2 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-8.2 ultimate flexibility and comfort. The Eagle RS-8.2 uses a 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-8.2 features reinforced arms and legs with an 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-8.2 has over 60,000 microcell air chambers which provide a 10 to 12% increase in heat protection performance.
