I see a deal for the Rio jacket right now from $99 down to $54. Anyone think this is good? I need a cooler summer jacket. I know there isn't much good to say about Joe Rocket gear for crashing, but there aren't many options in this low dollar range. Thanks.
at low speed it works well enough, it puts the foam between you and the pavement
it's not gonna stop abrasion from serious slides like leather, but if you want perf leather, buy perf leather...otherwise, it's this kind of stuff or the textile route
if i thought anyone else had better mesh stuff (first gear, apline or whoever) i'd buy theirs, but i've seen isolated cases of bad stitching on every brand and the JR stuff i've crash tested held up well enough
