I have been making my own motocross gear for a while, and i was trying to get peoples opinion on gear. What makes you buy the gear? Looks, comfort, cost,or durability?

|

I buy whatever's cheap and looks good, usually 2-4 sets on closeout at a time. I usually get tired of my gear before it wears out so durability is not an absolute priority, but I tend to buy high-end stuff most of the time.

What is a reasonable price range you shoot for?

Dont call it colorways. We dont buy our stuff at abercrombie.

My post is my opinion. If you don't agree with it, I'm OK with it.

Durability #1 as I know I am gonna be laying on the ground at some point and I don't want my pants torn too shreds after one get off.



Are you looking to make/sell some gear? What ya got going on? I've been wanting a jersey that's wind proof only on the front (i know Fly makes one).

I only buy gear with cats on it. That's my only requirement. Nothing else matters.

|

10/17/2018 1:29 PM

I look for lightweight because it's cheaper to ship to GBR for cleaning

Here is what i got going. Lightweight 4 way stretch main body fabrics with lots of venting. The stuff is very comfortable and seems to last really well (only in sample stage). Just seeing if i should go with the comfortable lightweight fit, or make it a little more durable and stretchy for the average guy!

Just drop some acid before you pick out the fabrics and throw them together. That should get you on an even playing field.

If this is a legit post, I have to give the guy some credit because he’s trying.

Do you have any photos of the gear in full, not just sections?

I like the holes in the crotch. Feel a nice breeze and keep me cool at the same time!

Id buy pretty much anything kawi green, especially a solid green jersey. So many companies are making flo yellow and theres only a few making kawi green. Good luck with the process, the gear looks good on the track.

I can’t be the only one that was thinking about the guy asking to clean peoples gear in the other thread..?

I like gear that looks "clean." Something that doesn't have a ton of crazy colors and shapes and stuff. Unfortunately for gear companies, everyone has different tastes. Some people like the flashy bright colors. Obviously comfort and price are huge too.

I’d be happy to serve as a guinea pig for R&D purposes if you need someone. Be forewarned, i have a critical eye and pride myself in providing only fair, honest, & objective feedback.
