Help me out!

Hey guys, I'm doing a little project for a corporate sales program for my summer class, I am presenting as an Alpinestars sales rep. selling to Cycle Gear (yes, I know they already carry their product).

If yall would do the survey it would be greatly appreciated, Im doing it to show what brand riders prefer the most from every day riding to track days.

Also, I've got multiple Alpinstars items that I'll be showing for a visual aid and some competitors products that haven't held up well to compare. If yall have any helpful suggestions, fire away!

Mike.

I have a mix match of gear that I use and trust. But out of the poll options Alpinestars I like the best. I use thier boots (I have thier street boots and thier race boots) and back protector. I havent crash tested them but I've seen good outcomes from other peoples misfortunes with A*

Icon helmets and vests are pretty good, otherwise alpinestars and dainese are the way to go.

missing from the list:
Joe Rocket
Tourmaster
Firstgear
Scorpion

but since you dont give those options, ill choose Astar...however i would never buy anything from Cycle Queer. Im not really their demographic since i have experience riding, know about motorcycles, and expect companies to follow through with their promises without the run around.

I understand I don't have all of the options, and I also am not a huge fan of cycle gear. It was just a topic that I knew a lot about and can really do a great job on the presentation so I chose it!
Thanks for all the input guys, will be making a bar graph tomorrow or Monday!

ICON, they make a great product. Ive got the Timax orig gloves. Timax jacket and subhuman helmet with gold reflective shield. Oh and icon squad 2 backpack. Had them now for 4 years almost. not one problem. had the backpack for 2 years i think and holding up much better than than 1st squad pack. they learned from the 1st one and really upgraded it. my zipper broke on 1st. squad 2 has these heavy duty buckles. totaly disregard rojer comment.
