It looks like there is a new colour scheme coming to the GMX Motion. Those with the white jacket now have a decent choice if they want to grab matching pants. White enough to match the jacket, yet not so white to be a complete nightmare to keep clean.

Looking to get some new gloves soon as my A* are tearing on me. I want the RS-Taichi WRX glove but winter is coming up and it gets chillin on the interstate at 50 degrees. My question is how are the WRX's in colder weather.

And should i just buy these for now and the WRX's after winter passes?

50f or 10c you should be fine, i have them and have ridden in 10c weather, once you hit 5 its like any other summer perf glove, sux lol. i have also worn latex gloves under which believe it or not helps a lot. I would like winter riding gloves, but cant justify spending $ for riding in cooler weather (maybe a month)

Awesome thanks. But I still might go ahead and get the winter ones, mainly because it rains a lot where I live and those are waterproof. Right now whenever I ride in the rain my A* dries all nasty and gets stiff. You have any experience with rain and the WRX by chance haha

no prob, yeah ive exp rain w them, really only one time, on the hwy coming back from watching races in shannonville (2hrs) from Ott, after they dried out they were fine. Actually if you have a brand new pair and find they tight, ive heard getting them wet helps aid in the stretching of leather. Also wanted to note: i went up a size from my A* SP2's. They run small keep that in mind

Im about to purchase a taichi jacket but I keep getting mixed information about sizing. The guy on the SGT clip said he was 5'10" and 165 and fit perfectly in a size 40. Im 5'7" and 150lbs....does this mean I should get the 38? According to the sizing chart I should wear a 40...

They def run small, im 6' about 185 and have the 54 or XXL fits well. Im sure a 40 would be fine, can always return it if needed

No, start with the 40/50. These definitely have a slim fit to them. Hit me up!

A small issue i have with the WRX gloves is that i have relatively long fingers for my hand size, so it has taken a while for the seams on the inside of the fingertips to soften up, and for my fingers themselves to get used to them. All in all tho, they are VERY nice gloves and i would buy them again.

Thanks Disco for the great service, even though it was in the middle of MotoGP for you all!

If any one has any questions about the suit or gloves, i'd be happy to answer from first hand experience.

Team RS-Taichi FTW!

I'm about the same size (5'7 147lbs), and the size 40 I could make it work, but the size 38 fits much better. Sleeve length is much better, although i wish the jacket length hangs a little lower. But I'd recommend the 38. I think I even have room to fit a chest armor too. Good luck!

So I was browsing good ol' Craigslist and I found an RS Taichi Crew Mesh RSJ289 jacket for $30. I already have full leather jackets and the like for when I ride, but I thought itd be nice just to have a casual jacket from a brand I like. Especially for the cost.

The catch is its a womens... I've been looking everywhere online trying to find the differences between the mens and womens, and I cant find any. Most of their jackets are unisex, so I dont know why they made the distinction on JUST this jacket.

backpacks

does anyone wear a backpack while wearing these jackets (the ones with the humps)?
i have a dakine helipack and it doesnt sit low enough so the bump is kind of an "annoyance" for me when commuting. i put my gym clothes and my lunch in it and it bulges out quite a bit...does anyone else have a pack they use that works with these jackets?
