Anybody here ever use or check out Cycleport/Motoport riding gear?
They claim that their product is better protection than leather, and it appears to have superior armor, and has the ultimate warranty! They claim their gear is good for 400,000 or so miles and that they will happily re-sew the seams and its then good for another 400,000 miles...they will also fix or replace any gear that gets scuffed up if you crash-test it...Looks fairly promising, and the prices are similar to good quality leather.
I've read lots of good things about this and the only problem I ever heard of was the owner tries to please everyone and you might have a little wait,because there are a lot of people that want his stuff.Check out the Avd. site as there is a lot of info.there.
I was going to buy their jacket, so I did a lot of research. I probably would have purchased one but I couldn't get the order form on their website to work for me and I never got around to calling. But, everything I found was positive and people seem to like their stuff. I think motocops use their gear. I have some links saved of in depth reviews, but they are on my old pc. I'll see if I can dig them up later.
Motoport kevlar gear is good stuff. If it wasn't for the wait I would probably own some. Leather is still the best for the track and canyon riding, but it there is rain, snow, etc. there are better options. Touring with leather would be crazy as once it gets wet it take forever to dry. I will be in the market for some new stuff now. I wonder what the wait time is like now?
After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!
Now the rest of the world!
