:iamwithstSolidus said:Well , there are different levels of Teknic . I've personally crashed in both the gloves and a jacket and both came out like pearls. The jacket was white silver and black and the white part was faded off just a little. ( I slid on my back for a pretty good way. ). And the gloves are still wearable today. Granted I opted for the top line Speedstar level of Teknic. I had a pair of The low end prowler pants and the seams started to give and the crotch tended to bunch. But when I got the speedstar level I could'nt be more satisfied with them. Teknic is a brand I trust and would buy again. In all it's like Comparing the safety of a Geo metro to a Cadillac Seville. Both are made by GM but you pay extra for more.
Speedstar level stuff is quality anything below that is one time use.
