Snowmobile riders are predisposed to some of the toughest, harshest and variable environments in the world during their snowmobile vacations or tours. The extreme weather conditions are intensified by the speed of modern sleds and by temperatures varying markedly during a long ride. Riders are prone to ice accidents as they may fall through the ice or can land in icy water if they cruise over a soft spot in a lake or river. Some riders opt for a floatation snowmobile suit to avoid such an emergency and keep themselves afloat. These snowmobile suits are an integrated combination of tough and smart technologies that offer consistent comfort regardless of the situation.
A floatation snowmobile suits is a good idea for riders who like to push the edge around frozen waterways. FXR Racing has been incorporating their FAST technology, which means Floatation Assistance Technology, into their snowmobile apparel to add lifesaving floatation assistance. This Fast technology is basically an insulation membrane that is made from low-density polyethylene foam and offers buoyancy assistance for almost two hours. The FAST membrane allows you to stay warm when you have submerged in ice water and it also retains its insulation ability when it becomes wet. It is moisture-resistant as well which enables you to shed the water quickly once you get out of it. This allows you to lessen the amount of ice on your gear and keeps you mobile and warm.
When you are submerged in water it is extremely difficult to get out of it and snowmobile suits not containing floatation assist gradually fill up and hold water, making it harder to stay afloat and pull up on to the ice surface. This FAST equipped apparel is equipped with drain vent mesh that aids in water draining out of the garments. This, in turn, allows you to get lighter as you get out of water and dryer much as quickly as possible to avoid hypothermia. You must get both FXR jackets and bibs that possess the FAST membrane feature as only one garment is incapable to provide you enough floatation assistance in staying afloat. Therefore, FAST is definitely a step above a regular snowmobile suits.
FXR Racing has been providing the best quality monosuits, jackets, pants and layer wear for riders for many years. They have a vast variety of snowmobile apparel that gives full mobility without any restrictions and seals off the suit providing complete protection in extreme weather conditions to all snowmobile riders.
