HOCOTEX® Patented Sparco Technology - Made in Italy
Sparco starts a new era with a technology that revolutionizes the way racing suits are made. Sparco is the only company to use the HOCOTEX® technology.
Single Layer Construction. Three Layer Protection. HOCOTEX® 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.
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, which 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 Extrema RS-10 has over 60,000 microcell air chambers which provide a 10 to 12% increase in heat protection performance.
