Hi Max,

the outer fabric of Ergo 365 Pro Expedition is a 3-layers fabric which is very durable and resistant, you don't need to add anything to make it keep waterproofness.
The waterproofness is given indeed by the H2Out membrane which is laminated between the inner light comfort fabric and the outer strong polyammide.

Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.

Hi Schine, how are you doing?
I'm sorry for such a late reply, but I was really busy with the MotoGP beginning in Doha and the World SBK race going in Spain.

Anyway, here's what you asked !

Gargoyle an overpant made in PVC coated Nylon, and long zippers on the leg for a very fast dressing. It has a 100gr/mq thermo wadding and CE certified Forcetech protectors on knees and hips.

Gradus II was a pretty big leap forward in term of fitting, with enhanced vestibility and wider reflex areas, for a safer night riding.
Is made in PVC with a 100gr/mq hallow fiber thermal wadding.
It also has CE Forcetech protectors on the knees, but can also be upgraded with CE certified hip protectors.

Superstorm is the state-of-the-art in terms of overpants.
We used our famous H2Out waterproof/breathable and windbreaking membrane for a more comfortable use on longer rides. This way you'll have a great perspiration and avoid moisture. For this reason we then opted for a 50gr/mq hallow fiber thermal wadding, which works just great for an overpants. Moreover, Superstorm can be equipped with CE Certified Multitech protectors.

If I had to choose one of them I would definitely go for the Superstorm.
The main reason is the extra comfort gained by the H2Out breathable membrane.

Just received my Ergo 365 suit- jacket in ice and pants black. How Spidi was able to make a suit with this much protection so comfortable is truly impressive. Also, had a great experience working with motostorm, highly recommend them as a source for this excellent gear.
Thanks
Matt

Hi mate,

Finally time to replace my 13 year old NT jacket!

Now that the voyager is a 3 layer instead of the 2 layers in the previous models, what's the difference between the Voyager 3 and the Venture?

Please check this page.
Does the venture take this armour? Your website suggests it only takes the compact level 1 armour, but that the Voyager 3 does take the level 2.

Thanks!

Hello Matteo,

I recently bought a Spidi RR Pro pants online in size 46(It has not yet arrived). I am about 5' 6.5 - 5'7 and weight at about 160lbs (athletic build). My question is, i'm hearing alot of differences in terms of sizing for these pants so will these pants be too large or too small for me? Some forum posts ive seen guys have sold their size 46 RR pro pants claiming it's too big on them and they wear size 30x30 jeans which is the size I wear. Please advise if size 46 is the right size for me or should it be lower (maybe size 44?), but I haven't seen anything lower than a 46.

Other details: my inseam is about 28.5 inches and about a 30-31 inch waist.


Also I have a Spidi GIGA jacket, will these pants fit with this jacket?

Spidi Voyager 3

[QUOTE=Usarka;21171641]Hi mate,

Finally time to replace my 13 year old NT jacket!

Now that the voyager is a 3 layer instead of the 2 layers in the previous models, what's the difference between the Voyager 3 and the Venture?

The 2 models are similar in terms of construction:
>removable H2Out waterproof/breathable membrane;
>removable thermal liner (with aluminum in Venture);
>6 air vents;
>external waterproof pockets;
>adventure/touring fit.

The main difference is the external fabric (Polyammide x Venture/ Polyester x Voyager 3), the aluminized thermal liner (Venture only) and the possibility to attatch the Safety Lamp (Venture only).



Does the venture take this armour? Your website suggests it only takes the compact level 1 armour, but that the Voyager 3 does take the level 2.

Correct it's only for Voyager 3, we don't suggest for Venture because the inside pocket would not hold it.


Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.

Thermal overpants - how about Spidi Gargoil, Superstorm and Gradus II

Hello Spidi - on Track,

i feel fine now - despite the party last night.

Thanks for your advice.
I am just a bit weared about the two models Superstorm and the new Gradus II because on Spidi-Homepage Gradus II is signed as "new".
So i thought that Gradus II would be the recent and therefore most improved model.
As i understand Superstorm is the better one against rain and more warm or equal warm compared
to Gradus II because Superstorm has the H2OUT-membrane and Gradus II has it not.
But Superstorm is not in category "rainwear", while Gradus II is there the "new" model. Gradus II is also often the more expensive in online shops.

My main purpose for the thermal pants is to keep me warm on highway-rides on cold days because i am driving a
Suzuki GS 500 E (built 1996) - a naked bike !

What pant-size could be appropriate ?
I measured a waist of 82-84 cm and leg length of 76 cm.
Usually i wear trousers with inches W32/L30.

Thanks for your info

Schine

Well Superstorm and Gradus II are both good, it all depends if you need knee protectors or not (standard in Gradus II) and if you like a lighter (Superstorm) or thicker one (Gradus II).
Your size in both is S.
Fyi here's Spidi Pants Size Chart

Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.
