Yeah, i was gunning for the gore-tex. I was dissuaded a bit when i found two pairs of drop goretex gloves at $17 each (seems that gtex doesnt have to be that expensive). I think ill skip these (i really dont like the red detail) and try to get a pair of half-pipes.

You broke your wrist?

Yep, maybe without them (bio-mex) could have been worse. I always carry strong painkillers these days.
Mitts might be a good idea. Im looking at Heli-ski with two finger and mitt. Bloody expensive, but.

They have G-Tex INSERTS...they are not All gore tex.There's rubber, plastic...and other materials not to mention the vent valves. But then I usually don't ride much when it rains

Scan their site for discount codes...I got my Super Pipe Pro for %124 instead of $144. Love them now...they fit perfectly, they got a little more soft and they are indestructible tools.

They solved my dilemma. They don't have the mittens in size 9 so im going for the half-pipe gloves camo version. Ill look for coupons though. Still haven't decided about the knee pads.


Whereabouts in the bay are you pawlo?

I just got off the phone with the friend reps on xsport, and she said that the main different between the half pipe vs the fly/network is the inside lining...Gore-Tex(warmer) vs the Polartec. And the difference between the fly/network is how high the glove goes. Is this true?

Someone was complaining about it being too warm/sweaty because of the Gore-Tex. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Getting these for $75 is a def a slickdeal!

Hmmm no, if it was me I said when your hands are wet....the skin stick to the polartec inside...But that was just at the beginning actually...the glocves "broke in " nicely ( the Pro are stiff) and are perfect right now.

I had the same stiff feeling from my Half-pipes at the beginning. So much so that it restricted my movement and thought I ordered too small. After a few rides they The broke in and feel great now. I paid $95 for my Half-pipes so the Flys should be be around $75.

By the way. The bio-mex works. With theses glove this is the longest I have gone without wrist pain in my 11 years doing action sports.
