just got my RS TAICHI from www.cyclegear.com for $50 to replace my JR highsides that i also bought for 50

the gloves are 10x better and fit much nicer. they are extremely small at first but after wearing them for a day or so they break in and become softer and more flexible.

the TAICHI's have much better protection w/ carbon fiber compared to the cheaper leather used on the JRs.

Good luck with them.

I hope they hold up if you go down. I lowsided once with some fancy carbon fiber Helds - ~$200. They split as soon as I hit the ground. Pissed me off so badly, especially since they were about two weeks old. Split open on the seam easy as an old whore. I tried to get them replaced as defective, but Held said no. Think twice before getting Helds!!
