A scraping away of a portion of the surface (as in dermabrasion of the skin)

Question: What is as abrasion resistant and aerodynamic as a leather suit? I'm getting a cbr600 and I want the abrasion protection as well as the aerodynamic qualities of a leather suit without buying leather. What is the vegan equivalent of leather? I know there is those kevlar jackets but they don't look very aerodynamic. Thanks.

Answer: The only thing I can think of is Keprotec. You will find it on leather suits in the inner thigh. As for making a whole suit, I really dont know who does. You could contact Knox. Based in the UK, they use it a lot.
