After crash - Sedici gloves and leathers video review


I got around to reviewing my Sedici gear I crashed in at the track and The Dragon. If anyone is looking for some leathers and gauntlet gloves at a good price point and good protection - I would recommend them!

Way better than Bilt for sure. Sedici is a good midrange brand.

I've heard Sedici is a pretty good brand and didn't know they were actually the 2nd company to acquire Frank Thomas gear until recently. Bilt gear on the other hand, you'd have to pay me handsomely to wear.

I have to say about my first Bilt suit held up pretty well. It's not my favorite suit but it wks. Ive wrecked in it 4 times once over 60and another over 80MPH and it held up, Boots on the other hand you might as well be wearing flip flops.

Both Bilt and Sedici are CycleGear house brands. I've got gloves of both brands and they've all held up well. One pair of Bilt had some threads on the index finger padding started to come loose. Brought them back to CG and got a brand new pair, no questions asked. Low speed crashed with a pair of Bilt race-style gauntlets. Scratched up the hard plastic knuckles and abraded parts of the leather. My hands were just fine. Still commute with that pair from time to time, when the weather is kinda crappy and I don't want to get my nicer gloves wet.

Some of their boots work well too.

I don't go by brand names. I look at the material, the stitching, and the overall design. I've seen some name brands with 3-figure price tags I wouldn't give $29.95 for.

I'm not a fan of the Bilt suits and clothing in general because it does not have much in the way of padding. The suits are baggy and lacking in pads in the arms and legs. If you look at a Dainese suits - they have huge padded areas. I think the Sedici is a good mix of quality leather/seams, padding, and price.

They got some decent looking suits for less than 300 right now! Tempting, especially for a growing child

I've always like Sedici. Glad to know that it holds up to it's claim.

I should have tried my VS sweatpants then! First lap, cold tires, didn't think I was going fast enough to crash but there I found myself on the ground so guess so!
