Not a very enthusiastic response, is it the economy? Or are people simply not interested in protective motorcycle gloves?

There's been over 1300 views and just a few takers? Please let us know what we're missing.

We guarantee our gloves to be the pinnacle of protective motorcycle gloves. We build our gloves for the crash not the show...

I am very interested in 2 or possibly 3 pairs of the Prodigy/Formula gloves, according to whether or not my riding buddy wants to participate.

Accurate sizing information would be important, I hate sending stuff back. Also, I am still unsure of the group pricing. In your second post you specify that, "Ultimately, our group buy price will be $180.00. However, we're setting up a group buy for www.ducatipilot.com and ADVrider members. So, as a one time hook-up we're offering our Prodigy and Formula gloves for $149.00". You also have $157.50 listed as the group buy price in other posts. I am probably missing something, but just want to be sure $149 is correct before committing. Finally I would also like an answer to a question asked earlier by another inmate as to where the gloves are actually manufactured.

Thank you very much for setting up this group buy.

John

gloves-sizing

Thanks for the posts, this project has been a long time in coming and our little recession has completely leveled our expectations.

We're looking to find a European Distributor, as our gloves are more relevant to people within the EU..apparently..
Unfortunately, I'm still surprised at how little interest there is overall. We couldn' have asked for a better CycleWorld review but all in all the results were far less than expected.

Any idea's?

PS- Pretty sure I posted Country of Origin ;)- Pakistan

Sizing:

www.highvelocitygear.com/sizing.htm USE the EU portion of the chart please..

$149.00 is correct...

Having had the stitching go on two different pairs of gloves in 2.5 years of riding (no crashes, no abuse, they just started coming apart - 1 within a month of purchase), I'm definitely interested in the Exhibition Pro's - put me down for a pair.

sizing

Getting better ;)

Sorry about the lack of sizing on our site, we're looking at revising it again soon.

SIZING:

PLEASE use the EU portion of this sizing chart:

www.highvelocitygear.com/sizing.htm

Additionally, we can custom size our gloves with a hand tracing sent via email if necessary. Since custom sizing is new to us, we'll ship the standard size and customize it if the "stock" pair doesn't fit properly.

You should only be concerned with custom sizing if you have typically different hand features; long fingers, wide hands, etc...

No offense, but glove sizing is so fucked up. That chart puts me in a med. 9"around my palm. I currently own gloves that are sized med, large, XL. When are glove manufacturers going to standardize?

If I order a med. and end up needing a large, will be a long wait to get another glove? Tempted to order both and return one.

totally agree

No question, glove sizing can be a nightmare. Standard sizing will probably never happen, too many players..

We'll have additional sizes just in case exchanges are necessary.

We're using that sizing chart because it's accurate, not because it falls in-line with anybody else..

Out of our last 50 pairs, we had 1 sizing return which was admittedly the customers mistake...
