group buy- #2 ???

I wouldn't mind doing another group buy assuming there's interest out there. I'm hoping others are awaiting our premier gloves to be delivered, before they start asking for another go. Timelines unfortunately can only improve if we reach a minimum of 50 pairs per style. Otherwise, we get pushed around in production... and if we have another Customs fiasco, that will only add to the delay. I'll probably have my broker set-up to clear the next shipment to be on the safe side.. We'll see, depends on what my bill is for the last clearance....

Received my Formulas

I got my Formula gloves from Velocity Gear today. I got the all tan (with black knuckle protection). They are very nice looking gloves, even though the look like something you could wear to your next jousting tournament.
"Robust" would be a good description.

I should mention this disclaimer: I'm not a long-time rider, and I only own one other brand of motorcycle-specific gloves. So...I can't compare these to offerings from all the other manufacturers. However, I've been wearing other types of gloves (work, dress, ski, handball, etc.) for many years. The Velocity Gear Formulas compare favorably with all in terms of fit and comfort.

There have been some concerns in this thread about size/fit of the Velocity Gear gloves. I wear a Medium in all my other gloves, and the Medium Formulas fit very well. There are two adjustments, a strap at the base of the wrist, and the closure of the gauntlet.

When I first put the gloves on, I was a little concerned that the knuckle protection might prove uncomfortable as it seemed that there was a seam or some fabric bunching in that area. However, that concern proved to be unfounded. I took them for a test ride this evening, a total of a little over an hour. They felt just a little awkward at first, compared to my very comfortable but less rugged deerskin gloves. However, within two miles they dropped from my conscious thought. I spent almost half of the ride in a local parking lot doing low speed work, using throttle/friction zone. There were no sensitivity issues modulating either throttle or clutch. Later, on a sparsely traveled road I did some braking and brake and escape drills. Again, no issues with feel or sensitivity.

The attraction of these gloves is, of course, the level of protection they claim to provide. I certainly hope I never have the opportunity to evaluate how they hold up in a wreck, but their appearance inspires confidence that they will hold up well.

I guess when you take a pair for a test ride and forget about them, either they're comfortable, or you have short term memory issues. In my case, probably both.

Hello Techno,

PM me your details and I'll check on your order. Most deliveries for the Formula and Prodigy gloves will come within the next couple of days..

For those that have been delivered, how about a review?

Prodigy arrived today. Wow. Great gloves. Outstanding build quality. My only issue is that I thought the exhibition pro would be more of a summer glove. These will serve the same purpose so one will more than likely end up for sale eventually. I'll probably keep the prodigy since they have the edge in protection.

Funny, when I bought my racer high end gloves a couple years ago I thought I was buying top protective gloves. These are a whole nother level! I love the 360 wrist strap since I have narrow wrists. Very few gloves actually tighten enough. Adjustment to spare on the prodigy!

John, how about a waterproof version?

gloves

Hello Jim,

Glad to hear you like them so far. Unfortunately, the most significant aspect of our gloves is unseen! We definitely need some testing comparisons....

Did you send a link to Ride Magazine?

As for the Exhibition Pro's, have you ridden with them yet?


Winter version? You know I can build them, it's just a matter of people's interest. I'm not really fond of the group buys if I can't have more accuracy with delivery time-frames, I don't want upset customers but my hands are tied with production on small orders. I would say a waterproof version would only be available on a group buy basis as I've decided to focus on one glove style and stock them as soon as possible. My gloves aren't cheap to produce and stocking them has become a priority.

Question is; which glove to stock first?

I have ridden in the ex. Pros and they're great, so theyd be used.. I can tell that they won't be any cooler than the prodigy so I kinda don't need them. Still, I do like the shorter gauntlet, but I can't tighten them as well since I have narrow wrists...

First in line for waterproof ( goretex preferably)prodigy!!

Pinky bridge?

Finally got my Prodigy's. As with the Ex-Pros the build quality is great and they appear to be very overbuilt. In a good way.
I do have a question though. What happened to the pinky bridge? From your previous post it was my understanding that this was to be included on the Prodigy....
