I originally had the SP1's but returned them when the GP Plus went on sale. I prefer the TPU knuckle to carbon one. Just as protective, but lighter, and lets air pass through.

I've worn the SP's through winter. Don't think I could do that with the GP's.
But I think I'll try em for my next summer glove.

I'm partial to these...http://www.heroicracing.com/SP-R-PRO...asprprov2w.htm

I I have a great connection here with a distributor $200 can't beat that and they are top notch as good or better than my Helds.

I almost always ride without gloves. I wear them only if the ambient temp drops lower than 5 deg C.......even at 270km/h it feels awesome!
