What we are thankful for in 2016 and hopeful for in 2017
Posted by Richard Slatin
As we wind down the Christmas & New Year Holidays, its also a good time to remember that which we are thankful for and choose our New Year's Resolutions. First, I'm thankful for the good health and presence of loved ones. For Slatin MotoGear, it was about this time last year that we began production of the EZ-1 SuperFabric Powersuit. Almost at the same time, we reserved our Vendor Booth at the International Motorcycle Show in February, 2016, at the Cardinals Stadium in Glendale, AZ. This was planned as our industry 'debut.'
Our product goals, then and now, are still the same. Making high-quality, good-looking protective gear and selling it at lower prices than our competitors. Our business model was and is based on that; which is to manufacture and sell directly to the end user. What we would pay to a retail distributor we instead pass along to customers as a lower purchase price. SO, we really do give you more for your money.
In the past year, we also developed and manufactured four more products; all high-quality and two built around the generous use of SuperFabric. Our Summer Mesh Jackets for men and women, the SMG-1 Winter Jacket; Kevlar-Lined Riding Jeans, and Summer Mesh Motorcycle Goatskin Gloves....and we test every product before making it for sale to our customers. Safety & Comfort & Looking Great is as important to us as it is to you. We also have higher standards for materials; if the other manufacturers are using 500D Cordura, we will use 600D. If the other manufacturers are using CE-Standard Armor, we will use the best of CE-Approved Armor. Plus, the generous use of SuperFabric provides you with a near frictionless surface to release part of potential impact energy via sliding instead of transmitting all of the potential impact force to your body. This is in addition to to its abrasion-resistant properties, chief of which is that its 15 times more abrasion-resistant than Kevlar.
We have a lot to be thankful for, including the great reviews our products have received from the three best-selling and most-trusted motorcycle magazines. So, don't be concerned if you haven't heard of us until now. Just be concerned if you paid more for other gear elsewhere. Buy from us with confidence and trust that at Slatin MotoGear, we really do give you more for your money. As Motorcyclist Magazine Online stated "The Slatin SMG-1 is one of the best budget jackets we’ve ever tested." We apply that standard to all our products.
