Supermoto leathers for the track?

What are the differences between supermoto leathers and typical track day leathers? Besides the ones I've seen not having knee pucks, are they basically the same thing? The lower prices caught my attention but I'm guessing they might not hold up as well in a crash?

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

I think the material is thinner and stitching isn't as good. You have to check the finer details in the description. Even then, stitching details aren't usually listed.

I have a set of supermoto leather that I use on the track. The difference is the way they fit while you are riding. They are alot more comfortable. The ones I have (Shift) are the same thickness as my Spidi's. They don't have the kneepucks but I am having the velco put on for $40 from Barnicale Bills leather.
