Hmm, personally, I woulda gotten the regular stage jacket and gotten a pair of pants too. I just don't think the flo is worth what they're charging.

I thought about getting all SMX too but I like the sidi boots better. It's pretty damn light and it's comfortable..

Nothing is wrong with them, but the GP tech has the best prtection, plus PU is tougher and more abrasion resistant than CF, thats why its being used more on the top gloves than CF now.
the GP tech has dual closures, vents, perferation between the fingers, 4th and 5th finger joined to reduce finger role, PU plastic protection for your wrist, kangaroo leather on the palms... should i keep going, of should i ask you to check out the close up pics on www.alpinestars.com
You have the top of the line jacket, why not get the top of the line gloves too, if you shop around they can be at your door for under $190

I know the GP Techs have better protection. As quickly as you were to tell him to "Upgrade" glove, I wondered if there was a manufacturing flaw or something I didnt know about with the SP1. Thats all.

Oh BTW, I have been looking into another pair of gloves (Spidis) but are the GP Techs comfortable. They look awfully bulky. I want to do some racing and I need something that wont make my hand cramp but will protect too.

well they took a while, to break in, like a day or two, but once they did, theyre the best gloves ive had, and i had SP2s before.
the stitching being on the outside, makes it so much more comfy. As the dual finger, at the pinky? u dont even notice when you have em on, and ventilation is better than anything ive even worn. I had to tape the vents shut over the winter, im looking into a 2nd pair, thats how much i love em.
