I agree with you. I'm curious who is doing the manufacturing. I think more brands shows the sport is growing and in a better place than the past.

That being said, "Pull In" isn't the best motto in MX.

But why do they all have to look like shit?

Pull In gear has been around for a few of years now

It's because almost every one of them does not make the clothes, they just get some company in China to make them. How much money do you think they are really losing when they blow out last year's models? Go look in your gear bag and see what is NOT made in China.

Exactly. The only gear I have that isn't made in China is JOPA MX, that is actually made in Holland.

Strikt is made in Canada. Sinisalo used to be made in Finland, not sure about them anymore. They haven't made a design that looked good in 20 years, quite frankly I'm surprised they're still in business.

They make a ton of hockey stuff

Make sure you downvote!

7/16/2018 3:53 PM

Yeah, looks like they've finally pulled the plug on their line of MX gear.

|

7/16/2018 3:54 PM

Does anyone actually care where the stuff is made?

yep, would have mentioned Strikt, just don't have anything by them. Sinisalo is China unfortunately, same as the majority. Even my new Yoko stuff is sourced to China.

of course, not that it may help or change the origin. I liked the Jopa stuff and was thrilled that it made in Holland. Same as the the guys that run the Strikt stuff.

Hmmm I guess some do. Can’t say I have ever purchased gear because of where it was made. I ride a Japanese bike.....

And a Chevy that is half made in Canada and China, and the rubber tires and leather is made in Mexico

I wonder where my Fox boots are made?
