    How hard is to send them and fix the seam?
    Get second pair and don't worry about it.
    I have held slade suit and in few areas the seams broke ,so what I bought second suit get the old one fix.
    I crash several times in phantoms no problems now I got the titans, crash in them few weeks ago,they hold great.i got everything twice just in case I crash and need to be send for repairs,just like my 3weeks old 2012 alpinestars race replica suit.

    I've crashed a shit ton of times on my joe rocket gloves. Whatever ones maladin used to wear. Loved those gloves. I'd still wear them on the street.

    teknic violator gloves are probably the best bang for the buck

    They ARE very good gloves. But you know what I found out? I had my Violators for a while. Now I've learned that it's basically your body's chemical make up. But the salt in my sweat and whatever else is in there, wore through the finger tips of my violators. Granted I had them two years and probably 30 trackdays. But that was also without falling.

    I also seen the same thing happen with Reagan Payne's suit. You could see the sweat line from I guess him sweating his ass off in an endurance race and you could see the sweat line from a couple of races before. He got on his bike and riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip it tore. Never been down. So I think that also may play into reasons for some failures.

    You would have to ask BB or Alexa for that type of info if they have ever heard of that.

    V5 Racer Yo!

    I'm with you on the gloves, as long as they aren't torn up I keep using them.

    Tires? I'll run tires someone else crashed on, the juju is in their head. :D

    That's not what I want to hear. Looks like I will be shopping for something else.

    i meet guy at putnam last month ,he got slade suit too.i want to show him what seams i need fix on my suit,and he got same problem,he dont even notice he got broken seams.
    seams broke in three areas by zipper,the big stratch panel on your lower back,collar.
    thats why i dont buy second held suit and rather go with the alpinestars.

    Here the requested pics. Held Phantoms with 4 months of track use.

    Both the right and left gloves.

    Still no word on if they will replace them or not.

    Bought a pair of the handroids beginning of this year. Have not gone down in them but you could never tell. The slider in the palm is worn down and the seems have opened around it. They do not fit me super well either. The seem is only the outer layer of material so i am still very confident that they will hold up in a crash. I had a pair of Frank Thomas gloves I picked up at cycle gear a few years ago. Lowsided at CMP at the end of the back straight and slide and rolled all the way off the outside of that corner. Not a single seem broke and i will still were them now. I only paid $35 at the time but they are roo skin on the palm. Go figure the cheap gloves held up longer the the handroids. oh well. If any one wants to buy the handroids, i will be at Road A and GNF just find me in the pits and have a look at them. Make me an offer!

    Teknic Xcelerators. Comfortable and survived several crashes (I had them when they were called by another name, can't remember)

    Matt H ah, mi scusi

    +1. My Komodo K-FX gloves were awesome. Protection and quality were amazing. Crashed amazingly well. Best gloves I ever owned.

    You would look good in a Scorpion suite! You would look so much more like a fast guy. Like me.
