Don't own a single thing they make. Just can't find the madhead brand website to see their entire line, and the go air looks closest in features and protection to what I have.

That downhill looks really steep. If it looks steep in a video, it's probably rediculously steep for real.

Did TBone put on a wheelie clinic again? That dude can ride.

My street summer gloves. Other than running small in size, I have them in Large and most of other in Medium, I like them. Good grip, protection and comfort. And they last.
I got them as a gift but would buy if I needed new pair. I will have my two year old pair with me today. You can see how they look after a few miles

Thanks Pete. I would like to check them out.

I actually ended up ordering the Held Sambias. I like the Astars, but there were a few reviews complaining about build quality on them. I'm really hoping the Sambias are worth the extra money. When I look at my old gloves, and compare the spots that incurred crash/ sliding damage, the sambias seem to have all the protection in the areas I wanted, plus some.

He's still one of the only people I have seen actually ride a wheelie through a corner.

There was a racer named Gary Nixon in the 60's that rode Triumphs. AMA National Winner who on his victory laps, did the entire track in a wheelie. Back then the series included mile dirt track, short dirt tracks, TT Steeplechase, and road racing. To win the #1 plate, you had to race and win all those different types of racing. That man could ride.
