New Leather Sponsor For WERA West Women’s Superstock Champion Krystyna Kubran
January 30th, 2013

WERA Racer Krystyna Kubran lands a new sponsor for 2013 and Women Riders/Racers everywhere may rejoice in more suit choices!
WERA racer Krystyna Kubran (#352) is excited to announce a new partnership with Cortech for 2013 and that she had the pleasure of trying out her first custom Cortech suit during the last few races of 2012.
“This is incredibly exciting as there are so few options for leather suits for women riders on the market, even these days, and I’m thrilled to work with Cortech in that they’ve made a few women’s suit for some notable lady racers recently,” Kubran commented regarding the unique issue facing women riders.
“There are few off-the-rack suits that fit women well, and many do not offer the safety features, like a ‘speed hump.’ I will not ride without one, as I contribute this feature to literally saving my neck in crashes in the past. I was drawn to Cortech’s great safety focus,” Kubran noted.
The 2012 Roadracing World Track Day Directory featured Kubran, among many other talented lady racers, in an article covering the unique issue of full leather racing suits fitting women’s bodies.
“Cortech worked closely with me in getting the fit correct and still keeping it flattering. Having a flattering fit is important to me, as is protection – it’s a girl thing,” Kubran commented in regards to Cortech. “Cortech was very professional and listened to my needs and desires for the suit. As women, we have significantly varying body types, and it’s not as easy to make a one-type-fits-many suit.”
“This Cortech suit fits incredibly well, and one of my favorite parts is how it hugs my body – like a glove. It doesn’t feel baggy in any areas, and this fit makes me feel more protected knowing it will not move or cause issues should I crash. It also has fantastic venting and stretch panels that make it easy to stay cool in the Southern California heat while providing considerable range of motion. Cortech did an absolutely fabulous job on my logo graphics. They are printed onto patches, and the resolution of the logos look crisp and vibrant!
“My favorite part, though, was being able to select the colors and have a small hand in the suit design.
“I highly recommend women consider a custom suit, as the pricing is very competitive with an off-the-rack suit and the market still doesn’t have a great selection of suits for women who race and ride on the track. Ladies, think of how hard it is to find a pair of jeans that fit right. Now think of how hard it is to find a good fit for your whole body,” advises Kubran.
Kubran’s final comment, “I’m looking forward to representing Cortech in 2013. They are helping me to balance femininity with professionalism on track.”
More on Cortech:
The Cortech line may be found at cortechperformance.com and have made custom suits for many AMA Pro Racing and notable club racing riders.
More on Kubran:
Krystyna Kubran swept the 2012 WERA West Women’s Superstock Championship and Formula Femme for the 2012 California State Championship. She had a best finish of 4th in the Open Superstock WERA West and California State Championship final on board her 2006 Graves refreshed Yamaha R1.
