Hi Andy.
Dueruote is the only jacket in Spidi collection made with that special construction (removable inner jacket with attached protectors).
It has never been sold in USA.
You can buy only online from this link:
http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textil.../dueruote.html

Delivery takes from 1 to 3 working days.


Thanks again for your interest

With Ergo, of course you can zip to any Spidi textile pants.

So since you guys won't supply the matching zipper piece, do you know where I can get it/what it is called? I tried to purchase some in the states, but the zipper coils are on the opposite side of the zipper tape. I am not really sure if I am just looking for the wrong thing or what.

Net7 jacket

AFter toying with the idea of getting the Track leather jacket I just don't think the airflow will be much more if any than the Ergo jacket.

So I am switching tack and considering a well armored mesh jacket.

So, Matteo, a question or two:

The Net7; is that your best air flowing (outside of the Multitech) jacket?

Will the new biomechainc armour fit it or just the Multitech?

Will the Warrior Evo back protector fit?

It doesn't look like it but would the Net7 attach to the NL5 with a zip or just the small fastener?

By the way, great result for Melandri

marathon gear

let me say that i love the marathon jacket. it does what it is supposed to very well. it also fits nicely. i wear an xxl. sized 56 euro. the pants however in an xxl are not going to fit. they don't have the room that the jacket has. would the vtm robust pants have a noticeably more generous amount of room for a thicker cut person? http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/s...ust-size-pants

i have also thought of going to the overpant option because i commute every day. i like the look of the gradus wp over pant but it is not imported to the usa. the superstorm is an option but the liner is not removable. how is the fit of the spidi overpants?

I'm not Matteo (obviously), but the zipper in that jacket is a 'women's' zipper, whereas what you're holding up is a 'men's' zipper. Ever noticed how buttons and zipper pulls on women's clothing are on the opposite side vs. men's? At least that's the convention in the USA.

I think Matteo may be still in Donnington Park, UK examining the wear on Marco Melandri's leather suit What a weekend of WSB racing THAT was!

Okay; back on topic!

Hi Moggi.

Net7 and Netix are fully vented jackets.
Multitech armour is more efficient, cause arms are not fully connected to chest area and mesh is lighter.

I suggest you:
>Multitech Armour if you like full protection and can use it under another jacket (eg.: Ergo outer shield)
>Netix if you want a very light and soft jacket;
>Net7 if you like a bit more protection than Netix (and you get removable windproof liner)

These jackets don't have zip to pants, because they use clip-stop button to be clipped to pant's belt.
You can use Warrior Evo (back protector LEVEL 2) on both of them, even if the protector tale will be over jacket's bottom.


Thanks again for your interest

I too am interested in the Gradus WP. I don't want a permanent liner. Do these have full length zippers on both legs to make for easy on and off? Also, do they come in a tall size? I wear a 36"W x 34"L jeans.

Hi dadsafrantic

VTM Robust is around 4inches larger at waist compare to VTM in normal size; Marathon pants, on the other side, fit tighter than all Spidi pants (around 1/2 size). You can use VTM or VTM Robust as an over pant, once you remove the thermal liner.

If you're looking for a daily use commuting easy-to-go over pant, go with Gradus or Superstorm; Gradus is more technical, fabric is more resistance and protectors are standard. If your usual size is XXL , go with XXL for Gradus and 3XL for Superstorm.

Hi JTT

Yes Gradus have full length zippers on both legs; zippers are all-along covered by fabric flapper to elevate waterproofness level.
Your size would be an XL.

XL will be long enough? I normally always have to get "tall" or "long" versions.

Thanks for your help!
