Shift Vertex Suit Graphics

For 2010 the Vertex Suit was given a colorway refresh. While the 2009 model was already clean and bold, the Vertex needed to push further and break new ground. As a result, this eye-catching color combination was comp’d and applied to the suit. A quarter scale paper version of the suit was constructed from the pattern to ensure precise alignment of the graphics to the suit which is intensely three-dimensional due to the extreme articulation necessary of proper racing leathers.


Sponsored athletes generally wore an altered off-the-shelf version, however premier rider Josh Herrin got a custom version due to the strict color guidelines enforced by Yamaha. The result was nearly as intense as the original.
