The Shockrider crash suit was a crash suit manufactured by Ayelixe/Krongbing Textiles during the Galactic Civil War between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire.

DescriptionEdit

Ayelixe/Krongbing Textiles specially designed the Shockrider crash suit for various racing drivers and are built to protect pilots of speeders, speeder bikes, swoops, and other fast atmospheric vehicles from the worst of crashes. The crash suit was made of relatively tough synthetic materials reinforced with a light armored mesh, and consisted of a snug full-body suit with heavy fasteners, gloves, boots, and a helmet; combined, these components provided unparalleled protection to any driver.

In addition to the armoring, the crash suit hosted special impact-absorbing gel at vital areas, such as the spine, elbows, knees, hips, palms of the hands, and shoulders. This gel helped to mitigate shocks to these areas of the body that are known to be the first ones to be affected in a severe crash. Also embedded in the suit was a fire and radiation-proof chemical to help the user survive any fire that may happen to break out in the aftermath of the crash.
