I agree with this completely. My gloves were junk (seams let go, palms did what yours did), suit was cheaply made, but my boots haven't been that bad. Id never buy their gloves again, but boots I would.No, that's pretty much a characteristic of any A* gloves I've owned or seen after some use...
I won't say their entire line of gear has gone down hill, but QC has def been questionable the last few years.
Bought my a star gloves at a Honda Dealership.thats strange my a stars gloves held up for 20k almost..very little fraying(which was due from a low side i had)
but id also recommend dainese...top notch stuff and looks better than a stars....hope im wrong but i think a stars is going to become the next icon lol
pretty much lol i just dont think a stars is where they used to be...theyre starting to target the same crowd iicon goes for...iicon gear is good wont lie but come on stop making "swag gear" i used to like a stars a lot but my last few purchases with them showed otherwise...neither iicon or a stars is close to dainese imoBought my a star gloves at a Honda Dealership.
The next Icon as far as what? Douchebags wearing it? lol. I had an icon jacket once and it was built very well... Got rid of it because it was a little big. Built way better than my brother's a*jacket that I wear sometimes when its cold. :secret
350z what the hell man! Why'd you sell your bike? You're like the only guy that I follow on here as far as paying attention to what they say. You're chill as hell.
xr600r = hooligan riding man haha i still love street bikes and will prob get another one soon...but after feeling a more comfortable and just as fast bike kinda made me wonder why i never went this route from the beginningYa I get what you're saying. I'd like to have something else right now but its so nice not having a bike payment. I still need to buy those grips you reccomended. After picking up a plated xr600r I've kind of lost the love for street bikes lol
