Forgive me if this is redundant. It's possible I may have already missed a discussion on this, but did anyone else know that Fox will be coming out with gear for women in the Fall? I was just down at our local dealer and he asked if I would be interested in it when it came out. He'll stock some of the items if there is enough interest and it seems like there was. I don't really have a problem fitting into the men's gear but I'm sure this is good news for most women riders. :)

It's about time a major player took note that women are also out there doing it. (If you missed the discussion, so did I, first I've heard of it - cheers).

Whilst I think it's cool, I'll wait till I see the product. If they think I'm going to wear casual gear while riding they can think again. If it is "proper riding gear", I wonder what sort of cut they'll have used. (wonder how long till it heads over here, we still only have the Lady Proton with no sign of the Fusion ever coming here). So please keep us updated when you get to see it, I can always go hassle a supplier for stuff :p

You got any idea what they're going to do? Tops are generic so far as I'm concerned, it's just the pants that don't fit - hmm maybe tops with built in bras? hehehe

I heard rumors it was MSR who was going to jump in with women's gear. I wouldn't mind seeing gloves that fit better and maybe a kidney belt too--all the ones I've had rub against my hip bones. No matter how I wiggle them around, they end up there. Tried MSR, EVS and Fox. No luck. Boots someday too--though that's probably too expensive a product to develop for what's still a specialty market.

Michelle, how hard would it be for you to send $$ over here and we send you a chest protector?

Good find, Gospeed! Sounds like you got the skinny first. It would be nice if Fox and/or MSR came out with a line of RIDING gear for women. I think that they would be able to sell just as much riding gear as they do women's casual gear.

SHARLA
AT THIS POINT ITS HARD TO SAY WHEN THEY WILL COME OUT WITH WOMEN'S
RIDING GEAR, WE JUST HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE CATALOG COMES OUT.
REGARDS
FOX RACING

This is what Fox customer service replied to my email. I am waiting with bated breath for a return call from the local Fox rep--who is, according to his wife, "very excited" about all the new stuff he just saw at a recent company meeting in California. We'll see. Hopefully they make it in orange!

Not asking for much, are ya Sharla? First you want Women's gear, THEN you want it in Orange! ;)

Don't worry, if it's like all other women's clothing, it will be made more cheaply and we'll be charged more for it than comparable men's clothing.

Hmm... :think

Wow, I thought for sure I must have missed the boat on this one. I'm never the first to know anything around here. ;)

When the guy at the local dealer asked if I would be interested in trying it out I said sure, as long as it's not in pink or purple!! He said he was pretty sure it was going to be silver and black. That's not to say that they won't come out with a few color combos though.

Michelle, if this stuffdoes indeed come out in the fall and you can't get it over there, just let me know if you're interested and I'll send you what you want. :)

Ditto bbbom! Even the mens riding pants are too short for my liking. It would be nice it they make a "tall" size or something like that without having to get a size 40 or something! :)

Wow, a motorcycle clothing line with women in mind. Sounds good to me!

firecracker, I have a feeling you're right about not being the only one ordering an orange set. ;) I think black & orange is a great color combo! :cool:

gospeedracer & bbbom, I wish I had your problem of pants being too short. It sucks being 5'2 and wanting to ride a full-size bike.

Thanks for the info gsr!

As long as they use some common sense on color choices. I don't want pink or pastel color riding gear. They will probably come up with something called "passion purple" or something rediculous like that. As long as it is serious and well made gear, then I'm all for it.

Bbbom and GSR- be thankful for your height. My riding pants my be plenty long but at 5'3", I can't ride the big bikes. :( :(

Hear, hear. Make the gear fit gender specific, but the not the color.

Neely, yes you CAN ride the big bikes. KTMster and I (and others) are living proof. Suspension modification helps a lot. Heck, riding an XR200, you're almost there. You can handle the weight already, you just need to adapt to a slightly taller seat.
