Teknic Gloves-Great price-Limited Selection

I have never ordered from this site until this weekend so I cannot vouch for their service or anything.

They have some Teknic gloves for half price and shipping is $7.99 for a single pair of gloves. Looks like most are casual riding type gloves and not hard core track stuff. I think Revzilla.com has a video review on about every one of these gloves if you want some more details.

http://www.extremesupply.com/
and search on Teknic.

Teknic is good stuff.
Too bad about the company.

I missed it what happened? I can't find anything on Google search either. I like their stuff to. I have had a Winter jacket for years and it's awesome.

Nobody seems to know for sure. Happened back in may.

That sucks, I owned two pairs of the Violator line and loved them. Went with a different brand for my recent ones and wished I'd gotten another set of violators. Too bad none of the V's on that site are my size.

I didn't see any gloves for $7.99.

Lowest price I saw on Teknic gloves was $27.95.

Yeah. I have a Teknic Chicane full leather suit. I love the fit.
I've been wondering what Josh Hayes is wearing now. They sponsored him. I'll have to look at my pics again from Road America.

I have always been surprised that Pegram wears Cortech.

It's not a brand you often see on racers.

Yeah, maybe I wasn't clear. The gloves are 1/2 off. Shipping is $7.99.

Yup Cortech is on the cheaper side .. maybe he doesn't have the coin for expensive gear, LOL ..

I love Teknic stuff and wish the company wouldn't have gone down under...

They called me....It figures, the glove that I want the most (Supervent) is not in my size Large. I will gamble and try and XL. Of course reading reviews elsewhere it's mixed on fit- some say they fit small and others too big. If they don't work out maybe I can pay it forward for the cost of shipping.

I find it hard to believe a racer at his level is trusting his bacon to anything but the best. He must be getting some stuff from the top shelf.

Is there a top shelf at Cortech?? I have owned their leather gear and the stitching is not that great. The textile stuff is a bit better ...

Cortech sponsors him. That's probably a custom suit. It's a $$$ thing.

Sammax, if they end up being too big for you, let me know. I'd be happy to work out a deal.

It's about as off the rack as his bike is off the showroom floor.

Another Teknic deal from another site. This jacket should fit me dead on. These are "samples" and have been used for demos, so I was told by the company selling them. $50 for $200 jacket and shipping is about $10. Size 44 is probably like a Large. I have a Teknic Winter jacket and it's a 46. Sleeves are too long so this should be perfect for me. I am 6' 160 pounds.
