Track Tested | Answer Elite Force Gear

Price: $49.95 (jersey); $139.95 (pant)

Answer Racing knows that not everyone needs the highest end premium racewear and that some people just want good-looking gear that will last the test of time at an affordable price. That’s where the mid-level Elite gear comes in! These days, many of the athletic cut pant and jersey combos are a bit to slim-fit for many riders, and the Elite line features a standard cut that will accommodate everyone nicely.

The Elite Force Jersey is bright and vivid with colors that will not fade, wash after wash. Lycra cuffs and a stretch collar make it nice and comfortable in the normal rub areas, and the jersey flows a surprising amount of air for a non-vented jersey. The jersey has plenty of room for those not looking for a slim-fit top, and it stays tucked in thanks to an extra-long tail and silicone printing to help it stay put.

The Elite Force pant was redesigned for 2019 and boasts a pre-curved fit that is perfect when you’re on the bike. Genuine leather knee panels protect against exhaust pipe burns, and offer a lot of grip against the sides of your motorcycle. The knee are is designed nicely to offer plenty room for knee braces, but they won’t be overly baggy if you’re one of those crazies who only wears knee cups. Generous amounts of stretch materials in the knees, crotch, and saddle area make the Elite pant super comfortable to ride in. The pant has dual side adjusters for a wide range of adjustment, and the waist has a ratchet closure system. We’re stoked on the sublimated graphics, which cut down on weight and do not cut down on the pant’s flexibility in the leg areas. The Elite Pants fit spot-on…if you’re a 32 in casual pants, you’ll be a 32 in these.

All in all, the Answer Racing Elite Force gear is reasonably priced, packed with plenty of features, and just as comfortable and functional as you would hope.
