    I was trying to place my order, but I did not see any area where the colour or options ( finger bridge )of the Prodigy's could be chosen?

    Thanks

    Stupid question, I am sure, but I have never tried gloves with the attached pinkie. It sounds like a great idea, but I don't know if it would bother me or not. If I was to buy your gloves with the attached pinkie could I later seperate the two fingers without compromising the integrity of the golves? I can't really make out how the fingers are attached on the website, so I apologize in advance if this qualifies as dumbass question of the week.

    I had the same concern when I bought my racer high ends. It's proven to be unfounded. Really. Not a biggie at all.

    Taking care of some loose ends..

    As of right now the Prodigy gloves will be all black, with no reflective perforations.

    The Exhibiton pro's remain unchanged.

    The Formula's will be coming in all black and all tan..

    As for hand tracings; please only use this option if you typically have sizing issues due to length or width of fingers.

    In order to send us a tracing, please trace your hand on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and scan it using the same page sizing of 8 1/2 x 11.
    Once you scan your tracing, print it to make sure it's comes out properly, then send it to us.

    The GB ends on the 20th. We're looking at 4 weeks or less from then...

    If I've missed a question please feel free to repost it..

    I'd like to thank the ADV members that appreciate what I've been trying to accomplish. Obviously, there are those that think the major players are doing everything possible to advance protective apparel.

    It's like the argument about nylon thread. Are you really telling me that motorcycle glove design has reached it's design and construction boundaries. That, nothing else can be done to build a better glove product..

    I guess if that's what you want to believe....

    Thanks again ADVRider members..

    There is still no way to add the option of the finger bridge on the Prodigy's when trying to pay for them.
    Any suggestions??

    Cheers

    Hello again,

    We're looking at putting the bridge on all Prodigy gloves; so if you've ordered the Prodigy please let us know if that's an issue. We'll also follow up at the end of the group buy.


    Brtp4- I really do appreciate your post and wish you would bring it back. I completely understand what must go through the minds of some when reading about our "project". We don't have factory riders or huge advertising exposure, hell we don't even go to the motorcycle "shows". What a joke, right?


    With that being said, I was and am very serious about having our gloves tested against the competition. Any chance you could help with such an endeavor?

    Maybe get some free glove pairs from your preferred source and send them to SATRA for testing and we'll do the same? Only problem is cost; we're willing to fund our testing costs but that may be a hard sell to any mainstream manufacturer. Not much to gain and a fat lip if my gloves are even half as good as I say..

    Anyone good friends with Pete from SATRA? Maybe they could offer us a group buy CE testing session ;)

    I was trying to help you in a subtle way. I wish you would have let things go.

    I am not available to assist you. Your "marketing" program is to bash other companies, inaccurately, instead of focusing on your own product. Additionally, though your passion is admirable, you lack context and experience. This is causing you to make claims and take positions that are flat out untrue. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that it is inexperience.

    Just a heads-up, several of the companies that you bash spend millions working with professional racers to legitimately make them safe. They are serious and sincere about it. Dainese and Alpinestars in particular are far more serious about safety than you credit them for. They get real information from highly professional racing programs that you will never discover working with SATRA or a belt sander. This would not be a point of discussion at all, except that you bash these programs and boast too much about yours, both out of context.

    So, no, I will not bring back the post and will not assist you.

    Just a quick question. Could you please confirm that the $90, respectively $149 prices are the final prices, there's no other discount being applied- presuming that you won't have a big influx of buyers in the next few days?

    thanks

    ps-

    Why should I let it go, when you so clearly started the "discussion". I'm more than willing to go the distance ;)
