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

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

Wow. Any insight about why this happened or what lead up to it? 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

Added reply in a thread Which pro`s still wearing neck protection? 2/5/2014 7:50 PM

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

I have the Predators and have ridden in them (and also Forma Dominators, Gaerne SG10, Gaerne SG12, Alps Tech 8, Sidi Crossfire TA, and a few others). They are the opposite of the Jetts.....super comfortable, fit great, and have great protection, but ... more »

WTF. The promoter had requirements to meet. Feldkamp refused to meet them. Promoter pulled the event. Happens in every series, and those other series play harder hardball than pro MX. STFU and move on. BP
