    Thank you again Poucher for your interest.
    Of course you're welcome here in Vicenza, we have wonderful roads, we're 1 hour from the Alps and 1 hour from the sea.
    By the way, once you've tested the suit, please come back with a report.

    Arrivederci

    I've been eyeing the Multitech for a year or so now. I wish there was somewhere to try one on. If things don't fit me just right it drives me insane. Seems like a great substitute for a pressure suit, which I can't stand wearing because its so difficult to take on and off.

    The other Spidi jackets look amazing too. I love the chest armor idea and would like to see how it works in real life.

    Will Spidi be at the Indy dealer show next month?

    Hi John,

    Multitech Armour is ready for Thermo Liner or Rain Chest in the same size; so if you have Multitech Armour in XXL, take liners in XXL.
    Let me know if you need suggestion about where to buy.

    Thanks for your interest

    Matteo,

    I'm very interested in the carbo winter gloves, and i have a question: Does this glove have any insulation on the palm-side f the hand or fingers? I have small hands and any additional thickness here makes my hands hurt and is not needed since I have heated grips. What I want is a good-fitting glove that has a standard thickness palm and grip-side of the fingers with some insulation on the back of the hand and fingers.

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Dear Alley,
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Carbo Winter is the waterproof/breathable version of the Carbo 3 Racing glove, the latest released racing glove, used in 2012 from the majority of our MotoGP and World Superbike riders.
    Being a racing glove, the cut and shape are not so "fat"; it is quite slim indeed. The Primaloft padding is on the back only, while the palm offer you a grip with is very similar to the summer racing gloves.


    Thanks for your interest

    Austin or San Antonio, Texas, USA or an online store. I have located the jacket and rain liner but not the thermo. Thanks, John

    John,

    Motoliberty could help you in that case.
    Otherwise, please refer to motorcycle-superstore knee draggers or revzilla online stores.

    I finally decided to buy this jacket but I no longer see this product anywhere. Kneedraggers.com in the US had it in their store but its not that anymore. I wear a full armour pressure suit inside and I thought this jacket complements it very well for enduro/dual-sport riding.

    Does anyone here know where I can still buy this ?

    Hi bayarearider.

    Spidi Raider jacket is out of stock almost everywhere, du to high demand in the last season.
    It also comes with H2Out waterproof removable membrane, the name is Raider H2Out and you can find it available also at this page: http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textile-motorcycle-jackets/raider-h2out.html

    Thanks for your interest

    Hello Matteo,

    You have been very helpful in the forum answering questions on the different SPIDI products.

    I wondered if you could help with a small question on your Tour S7 jacket. The material is described as having a Teflon coating. Will this prevent the outer jacket from "wetting out" and becoming fully wet and heavy in extensive rain ?

    In an earlier post you explained that your top of the range Ergo 365 Pro jacket uses a waterproof outer fabric so it will not wet out (but might leak through zips and vents etc.

    Do any of your other jackets use this type of material ?

    Many thanks for your assistance.

    mark.

    Mark,

    TourS7 is one of Spidi most performing H2Out Suit, featuring a top-level H2Out waterproof and breathable membrane, developed from Spidi with japanese Toray.
    Moreover, most of the H2Out range jacket have external waterproof fabrics, thus guaranteeing not only waterproofness, but fast-drying rides too.
    TourS7 external fabric is waterproof/breathable 3-layers laminated polyammide (55%) and waterproof/breathable 2-layers laminated polyammide (45%).

    The Teflon treatment gives you an upper level waterproofness, but the big part is made from the lamination, with is the waterproof layer "stuck" under the fabric.


    Hope everything is much more clear now.


    Thanks for your interest

    Hello, Mateo. I have Spidi pants (Hurricane), gloves (STR-1), and boots (Xpd XP-7 WRS), and I am generally pleased with these items. I also applaud Spidi's effort to introduce motorcycle clothing in light colors for visibility, but also for those of us who live in hot climates. I live in the southern part of Arizona, which is a VERY HOT part of the world. For commuting here (60 - 80 mph on the freeway) I usually wear a leather jacket. In the summer, mesh is a very bad idea here, because it is too hot for mesh. A better solution is a jacket that will ventilate, but that the ventilation can be controlled, with an LD Comfort under-layer soaked with water.

    My question is: Which of your textile jackets, and especially pants, would provide the best abrasion protection in the event of a 60 - 80 mph low-side crash, in the above conditions? I must ask you to try to recommend something that is available in a light color, because solar heat gain is a problem (I've tried riding here in a water-proof black textile jacket. That was a terrible experience!). Also, water-proofing is not at all important to me, since we only get ~6" of rain per year, and most of that will fall in just a few days.

    Thank you!

    MZ5,

    we sell a lot of Textiles to Arizona, and most of customers prefer our Netix or Netforce types.
    But I agree, sometimes in very high temperatures light colors with generous ventings could be more useful. Here I give you an example (STREET tex jacket):

    [​IMG]


    The thermal liner is removable, and the ventilation is adjustable, here's a zoom:

    [​IMG]

    Anyway, 80% of our 4-seasons jacket are step-in-clothing equipped: you can remove both thermal liner and waterproof liner, and use external shield in hot weather, opening direct ventilations. Here you have the Marathon Jacket as an example:[​IMG][​IMG]
