I have a set of red ones, not sure if I should do black yet
I think they are great! The wider, more "padded" ones are much more then I would want for comfort, I'm sure they do the job well (but too stiff and bulky for me). If you are looking for alot more safety then what you have stock and great comfort, these are for you.
It did take me a little to figure out how to wear 4pts so that they would stay fitting and not lossen up as you ride. I don't think you will be let down, nice customer service too.
