Hello again, It's really up to the members to make it happen. Out of all of the forums we visit, ADVRider has the most informed riders in regard to personal protection.... these gloves are the real deal!

As for the numbers, anyone that is "in" should post here, that way we'll all have a running total..

As for actual pricing, we're looking at:

Prodigy/Formula- $157.50

Exhibition Pro- $90.30

Lifetime Warranty....

I'm pretty sure I'm in for a pair of Exhibition Pro's. However, it's unclear to me whether these pass the CE test? I know you say it's built to the standards, or something along those lines, but do they pass?

Gloves

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...

Exhibition Pro's

Hello,

I'm a long time lurker that finally joined! I already spoke to HighVelocity gear and am interested in the Exhibition Pros. However I don't see enough people taking advantage of the group buy...looks like we'll be waiting a while...

Hello again,

Personally, I try not to compare "retail" gear with what the Pro's wear. They get stuff custom built and get paid to wear it. I'd be surprised if the top riders gloves were "retail" units. Most importantly though, they can replace their apparel after every ride if necessary.

Also, comparing racetrack surfaces to what we all have to commute on isn't exactly a "fair" comparison....Lastly, the best of the best simply crash less often than we do ;)

Here's what a Dainese "sponsored" glove does for you: GRAPHIC

http://www.ducatipilot.com/showthread.php?t=103

Van of Ducatipilot.com was wearing a pair of Dainese gloves that were stitched with NYLON.

The bottom line in my opinion: they don't build them to CE spec's because it would cost significantly more and when considering the numbers these manufacturers deal in, those are HUGE numbers...

The other factor is the rider mentality...... it only takes one time to get ground down to the bone...

We're also doing a group buy with Ducatipilot.com so hopefully that will help with the overall numbers.

So once you have 10 orders fulfilled for the gloves then how long does it take for actual delivery...?

Not doubting your product or your integrity, just wondering how this is true when the Exhibition Pro's have mesh on the back? How well does this particular mesh hold up compared to the leather found on the other gloves?

Are you familiar with Racer High End's? Your gloves would be replacing those. I've never worn a more comfortable, better fitting glove. How would yours compare? Esp. the exhibition pro's since what I would need is a good summer glove.

Good question:

That mesh is simply a cosmetic addition, the base material is leather.

As for comparison's, I'm really too biased to say. In my opinion there isn't a better built, stronger glove available anywhere, from anybody!

When I say "glove" I am referring to our glove "chassis". This chassis can be incorporated into ANY style/design...

I'm not familiar with your current gloves but CycleWorld and WebBikeWorld have both done reviews:
