Added reply in a thread Alpinestars tech 8 vs sidi crossfire 2 8/10/2014 9:53 AM

murph, I have ridden in nearly every high end boot, to compare them. IMO there is no comparison for on the bike feel between the T8s and the Crossfires. The Crossfires have a mechanical hinge, a more anatomical shape, and a much greater feeling of quality. ... more »

OP, of the helmets listed thus far, I have ridden in: Suomy MX Jump Scorpion VX-R70 Scorpion VX-34 Thor Verge Shoei VFX-W Arai VX-Pro3 Airoh Stelt Klim F4 And a few others. Like you, I am an out of shape vet, and run hot, so ventilation is a key detail. ... more »

Define exactly what you mean by "Best". Looking? Fitting? Value? Venting? Durability? Or actual impact protection? Every time this question comes up, there is extensive and passionate anecdotal info, without any focus on what the function of a helmet ... more »

Added reply in a thread Forma boots? 3/24/2014 9:10 PM

In my opinion, Alps quality has slipped as their volume went up, clearly on their Thailand-made models (Tech 7 and 3). The Tech 10 is solid but you can measure some irregularities from pair to pair or side to side, excess glue, etc. The Tech 8 has the ... more »

Know the brand well, and ridden in both. Dominator Comps with the bootie and TX without. Using Predators now. What do you want to know? BP

Added reply in a thread sg12s 3/2/2014 4:25 PM

I have been riding in SG-10s and SG-12s back to back. They are both great but I liked the 10s are better. Slimmer through the ankle and a little better feel. Frankly I like these more than either:

Anyone have a shop-eat-surf subscription? http://www.shop-eat-surf.com/2014/02/thoughts-on-the-pete-fox-shocker/ BP

Added reply in a thread sg12 vs tech 10s 2/19/2014 6:51 AM

I have both, although I have more time in the 10s. On the bike, the 10s and the 12s feel very similar, in general and for ankle support. IMO the biggest difference is that the 12s are slimmer, especially in the forefoot area. Hope that helps. BP

Since you are in the protective gear business as a manufacturer, (which means an assumed responsibility for the proper design and safety function of a product), you would be wise to speak with an attorney and get suggestions on how to communicate about ... more »

You would be stunned. There are dozens, for every brand, and disclaimers do nothing. Corporate counsel will advise you not to even mention safety. This is why the words "chest protector" are banned in some companies. They either lose them all, or settle ... more »

How many professional riders have you worked with? Under-jersey roost protectors are not protection. You are out of your depth. BP

Pros don't wear chest protectors, padded shorts, elbow protection, etc either. bp

Do you mean Forma's Canada importer, perhaps? Forma was founded by Ivano Binotto in Altivole, Italy. They now have some ownership also by the owner of Termignoni exhaust. BP
