Default Oxford gear

OK - time to raid the piggybank and get some new gear. Has anyone used Oxford's Laminate Tech jocks/trousers? Their pricing looks great when compared to Dainese.

Also who stocks Oxford clothing in Ireland(Cork preferably) ...

Oxford's new laminated gear does look interesting, especially at the price compared to the laminated biggies (Rukka, Klim, Dane, Stadler, etc), but just remember that any laminated gear - at any price - is going to struggle with warmer conditions.

I know one dude with a Rukka laminated suit (Gore-Tex - allegedly the most breathable of all the membranes out there) and while he loves it, he also has a mesh suit for warm days - the laminated suit is too warm, doesn't breathe well enough, and doesn't have enough venting. Dainese D-Cyclone, Alpinestars Managua and Held Cadora are all Gore-Tex laminated, and I think Ixs do Gore-Tex laminated gear too, as do Rev'It.

Other brands do cheaper laminated gear too, but - like the new Oxford suit - with their own proprietary membrane; Spidi X-Tour H2Out, Alpinestars Yokohama, Macna Impact (Impact Pro?), Dainese Blizzard.

Rev'it Horizon 2 is laminated with their own membrane. I have the pants, they perform very well and have a fantastic vent sytem.........although I have a mesh suit for the summer (and carry wets in case of emergency)

That Oxford Mondial gear looks like a carbon copy of the Rev'it Horizon 2 (which isn't a bad thing)

Richa have two new Laminated jack.ets coming out early next year one gore-tex and I think other one is their own design. Not sure on how they will be priced. Their Atlantic laminate GTX jacke.t is very well put together and priced very well for when you look at the competition.

Revit laminated gear is good because most have two large chest vents that vent air directly to the body. They also have a good selection of jockss to choose from all of which have CE level 2 armour.

I have owned the horizon 2 jack.et and can say it's totally waterproof and it will manage very well in warm weather also. I'm selling my XL horizon 2 if you are interested.

But I did see the Oxford jocks in RIDE magazine and it looks very nice.

Laminated is the way to go for Irish weather imo.

The link won't work because of the jocks hack.

Just Google "Oxford's Laminate Tech" and its the first one. Solid looking piece, only couple of things I see that I wouldn't like is the first vents couldn't be opened on the move as it looks like it has to be buttoned where as Revit and Richa use magnets so it just stays open.

The second is the armour is only level one unlike Revits seeflex level 2 which is pretty cool and very comfortable.

But then again there is €1200 Rukka and Dainese that only use level 1 armor.

Nice video, think that guy is sponsered by Oxford products. But it still very tidy bit if kit. The adjustable neck button idea was stole off Rev'it
