Experience with AXO?

Anybody used their products?

Boots?

Gloves?

Leathers?


How is the quality and fit?

I have the aircage pro and their gear bag.

Not overly impressive quality of material, but very well designed stuff. I can't speak for boots/gloves, but the AC pro has fantastic coverage and little design add-ins that other companies neglect.

Axo IMO is a good product. When I raced motorcross I wore there gear and was satisfied. I've also owned one of there race suits as well. Fit was great and held up very well with my crash at msrh back in December. Also Enoc owned a axo suit as well and was very impressed on how it held up as well.

Is axo a good suit? Yes
How does it hold up in crash? Very well.
Can't go wrong.

I've now switched to alpinestars because of sponsorship opportunity through a vendor.

I had AXO stuff in the past when doing dual sporting, woods riding. Good stuff and it holds up well. Good prices, you won't break the bank when buying it.

In my experience, their off road boots did not hold up like Alpinestars, Sidi or Gaerne. Havn't tried any road gear.

A couple crashes and my A* Tech 7's buckle broken. I like my $179 Gaerne's much better than my $300+ A*. I have issues with all A* boots. Even their road race stuff wears out and falls apart quicker than other people with Sidi's and Gaerne. I've gotten to where I just buy the cheaper A* stuff (SMX) because even when I spend the big money on their Supertech R's , I get no more life out of them. I can't bring mydelf to pay $450+ for the high end Sidi's. I'd be really if I paid that and those fell apart too.
