One more layer of protection means valuable extra time to escape the heat in case of a fire. UPR Racing Supply stocks a large selection of fire retardant under layer tops and bottoms. Nomex Underwear as it’s called in general terms. Under Layers/Underwear is available from Alpinestars, Sparco racing, RaceQuip, and G-Force.
Racing underwear tops come in different styles and are made from a variety of heat resistant fabrics. Also called “SFI Fire Proof Underwear” , “Nomex Underwear” and “Long johns”, they all perform a similar function which is to give you another heat resistant thermal barrier in your racecar. Sparco and Alpinestars both offer very breathable moisture wicking fabrics to help cool your body as the perspiration evaporates from your skin. It’s a common misconception that wearing a t-shirt under your racing suit is cooler than wearing SFi or FIA rated Fire Retardant Under Layers. The fact is that cotton T-shirt does not breathe as well as racing under layers and they will retain moisture creating more of a sauna effect in your racing suit.
UPR Racing Supply can assist you in selecting of SFI Rated Underwear or Socks that can ship the same day. If you’re looking for Nomex Socks and Underwear in Tucson, stop by our Racing Supply outlet at 3705 S Palo Verde Blvd. Tucson AZ 85713.
