Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics

I think I should crash more often. My insurance company paid me 1155 Euros, so I can get new gear.

I bought a new X-Lite X-802 helmet for 300e, a used Astar rh glove for 20e and suit's repair cost is around 70e.




Arai is going to be my spare helmet.

Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics



funny or not, as in your last picture, my A-star glove teared apart exactly on the same spot in the tumb area in my crash. It seems a pattern to me. Maybe it's time to get my gloves from a different producer

I'm probably going to buy Knox Biomech gloves in near future. Astars broke exactly like Brian says in his Biomech review video.

Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics

Today when I get home I will post a picture of the glove, to see it. Did you have any injury in the palm? That hole seems pretty big to me

There is a small cut on my palm, but it's nothing like my knee.

I sport some Suomys now, and I have yet to crash in them, but somehow I don't like the feeling. Held phantom will soon follow here too.

I may be totally wrong here of course. But I had a similar problem after playing unknowingly with my bike's TPS settings.

Damn jk750 time to invest in some rs taichi or knox gloves that have the scaphoid sliders. At least you weren't hurt too bad.
