Is the membrane as good a GORE?
Does it come standard delivered with a back-protector?
Can you post a picture of the outer shell sleeve-end, is it built to "ape-arms" ?
Hi PhaseShifter.

Spidi Hard Track is the lightest Adventure 3-layers jacket in Spidi collection.
It has been indeed devised to give high performance (3-in-one jacket + external 3-layers fabric) with the lowest possible weight. The weight is in fact 2,7 kgs (95 oz) only; you just compare it with Spidi Ergo 365 Pro, 3,8 kgs (134 oz); the reduction of weight has been possible thanks to a lot of details, a light external 3-layers polyammide fabric, reinforced with original Italian leather in most critical points such as shoulders and elbows.
For all these reasons the comfort on and off-road is at the top, even thanks to very easy to use front and back pockets, very large YKK zippers and elastic cuff.
You can find further details at http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textil...ck-jacket.html or watch the video to understand how the 3-layers system works.



Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.

Hey Matteo,

I cannot find out how de sleeve-end is built, is de H2Out shell equiped with cufs or is it just a cuff on the end of the outer shell?

ThanX for answering!

Hi PhaseShifter

You can find a video and all details at the page http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textil...ck-jacket.html
Here's some screenshot (sorry for poor quality) where you can understand cuffs are external (elastic), internal on waterproof layer (H2Out Membrane, with 2 positions plastic buttons) and internal on insulated liner (water-resistant fabric).
You can combine the use of every single layer/ cuff in-out-side the gloves as you prefer.



Hope everything is clearer now.
Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.

Hi
I am looking for jacket and pants that have a waterproof laminated shell (so that it doesn't soak water and get bulky) and offer good ventilation for summer riding. A thermal liner is a plus. Which model(s) would you recommend?

Hi Shasha

Here's a list of some Spidi jackets with a 3-layers shield fabric.
That means the fabric is made of ("sandwich") 3 layers:
>an outface part usually made of hi-tenacity polyammide;
>a middle part which is the laminated waterproof breathable H2Out membrane;
>an inner part which is a sweat-repellant light fabric (usually polyammide too).

>Spidi Ergo 365 Pro Jacket
>Spidi Hard Track Jacket
>Spidi Super GT Jacket
>Spidi Tour S7 Jacket

Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.

I have the tour S7. It has the waterproof layer built into the jacket. The thermal liner zips out and is quite warm. I am comfortable down to the low 40s F without needing an electric vest. The built-in liner of the jacket (mesh) will help the breathing in the summer compared to an Aerostich. Also, the coat has integrated venting ducts. Jacket is quite flexible and supple compared to an Aerostich. The fit is euro snug which is perfect for me, but take care that some volume is taken if you put in a back protector. I don't have a lot of extra room when I need to use an electric vest.

It's hard to near impossible to have a jacket with a built in gore-tex layer that is comfortable in 90 degree weather. I am going to buy a mesh jacket, with removable membrane, for hot weather.

Sorry Matteo, this afternoon i tried a l, xl and a xxl size. normaly i need a l or xl, for a jacket, but now even the arm-length of the xxl was way too short and the body from the xxl was kinda German beer-belly sized
So no SPIDI jacket for me this year..... Why does Itallian confection sizes always are at least one size too small???
Please would you consider to produce extra-length jackets and throusers??


Anyway, I bought a pair of hard-track gloves, the fit is excelent, can't wait to use them in the summertime

Hi PhaseShifter,

compliments for your purchase! The 2013 Hard Track gloves are really at the top for comfort, you will feel them better and better especially during warm days.
About sizing in jackets, yes we fit 1 size less compare to americans.
If you're looking for bigger sizes, most of Spidi ones get up to 3XL or 4XL. If you need an even bigger size, you should check Ergo 05 Robust, which is larger than normal one and gets up to XXXXXXL (6XL). Here's a chart of comparison (measurements are in centimeters):

Hi Matteo, nice to see that German/ American beer/hamburger-belly sizes are availlable, but The Dutch don't need larger sizes, we need TALLer sleeves and legs-lengths
The most brands do not make TALL sizes (REV-IT does)
So you have to be a tiny Itallian or a bulky American to fit most brands.
It's just the way it is, i am getting used to this

PhaseShifter,

how to forget taller people, get a lot of them on bikes nowadays! Look at Spidi's World Superbiker Leon Camier (6,2 ft).
Anyway, here's a list of Spidi Longer sizes:
>Hurricane Long Pants
>Ergo 05 Slim Jacket

And yes, this is the "Long and Slim" Spidi size chart:

I'm riding my Marathon H2Out suit since one year and 25.000Km already. The suit performed greatly both on chilly european days and northern african rides, so I can just imagine how the new and improved Hard Track would be.

That said, I'm really thinking of buying myself an Ergo 365 Expedition for onroad touring and longer journeys. I just love the greater protection coming with the complete european certification.


I believe that nowadays there are not so many "allarounder" suits with all those features and protections.

Need to find a shop in the nearby which has it in stock...

Matteo, do you have any clue ?

Hi Ordenessal,

Ergo 365 Expedition is a great improve if you're used and happy to Marathon.
The main difference is of course the CE Certification, but let say that what you can feel at a first impact is a big difference in the external fabric, which is a laminated 3-layers polyammide, very resistant but extremely comfortable.
Here're the 2 for you to remember:



About shops in North Italy (correct?) there're really a lot stocking them just check the page:
http://www.spidi.com/it/it_it/storelocator
but please call them before visiting, Ergo is really limited in stock at the moment because production is in Romania and fabrics and materials comes from Italian factory which are under producing at the moment - demand is still higher than expected from what my colleagues in Italy tell me.

Anyway I hope to meet you around cause I'm soon visiting some dealers in Milan area (I hope for a promotion soon!)

If you prefer to talk to us in Italian - I can't in this forum - you can write to info@spidi.com

Let me know if you need further assistance.


Thanks for your attention.
