Jacket? Excellent protection and features
Gloves? Good protection and features
Shoes? Poor ankle protection
Pants? You don't like your current knees?

BTW, the jackets offers excellent ventilation, while the shoes offer no ventilation. Just making sure you are aware.

Anyways. I am a new Driver. I wont't drive that fast for some Weeks, just because the 6-7k RPM Limit for the first 600miles / 1000km. Good for the engine, or?

So i won't need a Pants immediately. But will spend some <250€ for it.
I really like the Jacket. Perforated. Awesome :3
The Gloves have been already in use for a 1 Year from a good friend. He told me to buy them :) After that i thaught, hey gonna buy the whole GP Plus Collection. But couldn't find the right Pants and the right Shoes from the GP Plus Collection. And when i saw the blue Fastback Shoes i was totally in LOVE... They look so fuc**ng stylish.
But yeah your'e right should buy some more protected ones...
They are textil, they'll cool better than any leather Shoe, for sure, i bet.

Any other tipps?

If you want a more protective pair of boots later on, but don't want tall ones, these are a great choice. GAERNE G-Round 3/4 height. They are full leather with ankle protectors and the BOA quick lace system.

These were comfortable for me from the very first time I wore them.

Available at FC-Moto for 153 Euros.

For pants later on you might look at Lindstrands WRAP jeans. They have the Hi-Art protective system in them and optional hip and knee pads (I added them to mine). Lindstrands is part of Halvarssons of Sweden. Very high end motorcycle gear.

I will buy that Jacket definitely. But perforated.
And the A*s Site says for the boots: "External TPR protects the Ankles on both sides"
What does that mean?

TPR stands for Thermo Plastic Rubber and when used for ankle protection is usually in the form of a round disk of TPR placed between the layers of the boots at the ankle position. In this case, since it says it's external, it is stitched onto the outside of the boot.

In these photos it's the black panels at the back of the boot behind the A*s logo

I'm glad that I found this thread. I was going to get the Dainese Vera Cruz for something lighter than my Sidi Mag1 boots.

Where are those pants available from?

I found mine on eBay, from a seller in the UK. The black ones listed first here are the ones I bought.

Pads cost extra, usually available on eBay, too. I couldn't find any today but they are available from this seller in the UK:

Nice, not cheap though. :) Not that I was looking for cheap. I ended up myself with the Dainese Street Biker Air shoes. I like these pants. I might have to get them.

If you want some inexpensive leather pants and don't want/need them to have racing pucks, these are good ones for 130 Euros/93 British Pounds:

https://www.fc-moto.de/epages/fcm.s...ts/SubProducts/Ixon-Fueller-Leatherpants-0007

They list for $169 Euros and it's only $17 shipping to the U.S. normally.

Those are nice. For that money, I am thinking that would be nice, I wonder how airflow is on these?

The stretch panels on the crotch and back waist area should flow some air. Certainly should be cooler to wear than if they were all leather.

That's what I was thinking too. I'm going to probably get a pair of these.
