Depending on production timelines, and GB pricing, I would be in for a pair of large Prodigy...

Prodigy

O.k., sorry for the delay. Having some supplier issues for body armor, just wonderful!

So I understand the Prodigy is a desired glove, from the sample, I'm very happy to know it will continue..

So a couple questions before I put up a link.

~All black or black with Tan palms?

~100% Leather $109.00
~100% Kangaroo $159.00
~Kangaroo palms, and cowhide? $129.00

100% kangaroo with tan palms here.
By the way, some questions came to my mind, gotta minute? Please tell us if this version does fit the same knuckle protector as the original prodigy, if they are also covered with reflective material (hard to see in the pic in page 5) and your views about adding a pinky bridge. Another one .. why do use different scaphoid protectors, what's the difference beetween them?
Thank you

My apologies for the late reply..

~ Reflective material is still in place and exposed by the knuckle perforation. If this is a desired feature, we may look at making the perforation larger for the order.
~ Pinky bridge is always a positive in my opinion.
~Knox sliders, the older style larger sliders could cause some interference with the grip's. Everyone seems to like the new smaller profile. If you plan on sliding across the pavement daily, then maybe the large sliders would be beneficial.

So here it is, the Group Buy Page for the Prodigy:

Black with Tan Palms and Kangaroo Palms..

Woot! Ordered. You are very much appreciated for this discount.

Opinions:
~More reflectivity is always good, so long as it doesn't unduly weaken that spot in the glove. "Some" is better than the "zero" on my current pairs.

~Never tried a glove with the pinky bridge, but I'd like to. Adds "cred" and seems like a reasonable idea.

~I'm buying the gloves because I plan to slide them across the pavement at some point, but I don't really have that scheduled in my calendar. I'm not doing track days, but my palm does spend a lot of time on the commute skipping tracks on my helmet headset, so I'd be OK with a smaller slider.

Will there be a waterproof glove in the future? I love both my pairs of your gloves, and would really love to add a waterproof pair to the collection. I would also love a heated version, but I assume that is an entirely different beast?

Awesome fast service on my return. Thanks John!

Ok now I need a waterproof glove for cold weather with a gauntlet big enough to fit over winter layering. I have a pair of firstgear but there is little protection.

In the meantime, I'm still thinking about another pair from this group buy.

We're working on a winter version, Levain here on ADVRider is my official tester. I have a second pair of gloves for him to try but, haven't had the chance to get them to him...
