Shift gear? (Terrible Inventory)

Just got back into riding. Really like the Shift gear but man it is impossible to find stock on the premium gear. Has this always been the case? Looking at all of the major vendors either they have nothing or not a complete offering. Sizing is all over the board on what is in stock. Doesn't appear with the other brands. Even on there own site it is thin.

Was just checking to see if this has always been the case or just bad timing on my end..

No sir. Not the Blue Label.

I purchase majority of my dirt bike needs from RM, I get next day service. That is if my locale shop doesn't carry it.

Don't know which size you need and which set you're looking for but BTO has most stuff on stock.

Most of the SHIFT Blue Label sets are limited edition releases. They usually get bought up and sold out pretty quickly.

That would make sense.

Thank you.

The really dark blue with gold set was a standard color for the 2018 line so that would probably be your best option for finding some kind of availability. Most of the other colors were limited edition sets.

Even with that said, Fox hasn't always been the greatest with having stock throughout the year. I know they're making some changes for the 2019 line to try to address that.

Just because BTO shows it as "Available" doesn't mean it's "In Stock".

I learned that the hard way.

I just got the Blue Label 4th Kind red/blue combo. It was the last pair they had in my size and I jumped on it.

Crazy to think they sell out of $300 dollar gear that fast....

Good for you man. That's a great looking set up.
Yes $300 seems a lot but what I have learned in the past, the cheap gear or the lower end offer gear sets do not last very long.
Guess I will be going back to Thor.
