Thanks for the replies and I appreciate your interest.
The only difference between the Exhibition Pro's and the Formula/Prodigy is the use of Kangaroo Leather on the palm side of the hand. We only tested the Kangaroo leather chassis because another failure or additional testing was not an option.
Now I'll post some numbers that have never been posted before:
this is for the Kangaroo leather chassis
4.9. Tear Strength- passing = 40N
---VelocityGear gloves- 165.75N
4.10. Seam Strength- passing 15N/mm
---VelocityGear gloves- 21.4n/mm
4.11. Cut Resistance- 2.2 on the cutting index
---VelocityGear gloves- 21.2
4.12. Abrasion Resistance- 2.5seconds
---VelocityGear gloves- 7.96s
All numbers are "mean" adjusted.
So, in my opinion a full cowhide leather would also pass the testing requirements considering how well our gloves performed.
Now, the full leather chassis hasn't been tested so my guess is just that. Having "solved" the CE puzzle myself I'm pretty confident to say they'd pass.
Otherwise, the Kangaroo hide is a sure bet...
