i've got myself a spidi garage for my bike
the armour isn't very noticable and the leather is great, very thick and soft.
quite sobering when you compare motorbike gear to 'fashion' gear. the motorbike stuff is such a higher quality and far far cheaper, really puts things into perspective.

on topic though, recently bought myself a new pair of summer gloves, RST Ventilator X, really nice and good value too (£35)

Looks good. II'm with you on that. Went in expecting not much for that kind of money but it's actually great. Buffalo too.


Those gloves do look a bit flimsy though. Like it wouldn't hold up in a slide.

Always go 'Alpinestars' for bike gear. Got an Alpinestars leather that I've had for years, it's got loads of life left - quality is off the charts. Picked this Textile up for cooler weather - got so much armour it makes me look like a linebacker though..


…that Spidi looks lovely, Jords Cool

They are okay, but their gloves are shite. My Gp plus were trash in 6 months, my mates GP pros same. Poor stichting, poor materials, poor construction (glue marks). It's like a different company.

Nothing exciting but £57 delivered from the dreadfully named Dapper Street, limited sizes left but seemed a good price.

Anyone interested I’d say size down .5. Toe box material is a bit see through but I like them.

Got a spare pair in UK10 if anyone wants them before I return to Hip. £70 delivered as I got these with NHS discount.

I really want to like these but I refuse to believe that these tongues are 'Nothing out the ordinary'

Evidence points to a much longer big flappy tongue (no Swedes maw) there is some shocker pics out there if you look (non stylised ones)

Compare to standard daybreaks and the UC ones.

Deffo ruined what would of been a nice shoe.

That tongue is 100% flapping about annoyingly drifting to the side
