    Nice,but does not appear to offer anything better than what already exists from TCX Infinity,BMW Santiago,Sidi Canyons or On Roads,or similar,unless the price point is a whole lot better.

    Mexican Gaerne dealer just tell me the price for north america US & Canada $199 dlls. for Mexico it will be $3900 pesos. somthing like $312 dlls.

    if you need to choose between the G-Adventure VS the Forma Adventure what would you choose?

    yesterday I order the Forma but I can change it for the Gaerne same dealer in Mexico also the Forma are $32 dlls more expensive.

    It looks very similar to the G-Quad

    They're both pretty nice, and close. I have the Formas and have ridden in them a bunch, they're nice. Have the Gaernes, but have not ridden in them (1 size too small). The upper is nicer and more supportive on the Forma, the Gaerne is more rigid along the sole (good if you hit a rock with your toe when on the pegs). Forma is a little too flexy along the sole, but it is super easy to hike in.

    Between the two, I think you made the right choice, I would probably take the Forma. But they really are both good.

    They're on the water now. I'll have them late Jan / early Feb.

    Edit: my sample pair are 10s / 44.5s, I could sell those if they fit you.

    The G quad is waterproof. It just never made it to the states. I bought mine from a UK website.

    OK, little late, and I only got partial info, but....anyway:

    US production of these is scheduled to ship end January. Takes about 21 days on the boat (IIRC) and about a week for customs and inbound transit. So, figure end of February for arrival and availability.

    Price is still TBD, although the Italy price should have some correlation.
