no question. SLIDE!
I've never crashed on the street before and don't do much street riding anymore. However, i've crashed enough times on the track to know sliding is much better. i've had slow, medium and high speed (170km/h) crashes. The sliding isn't so bad but and it really hurts when you hit the gravel traps and start rolling or flipping.
Just have to look at all the top racers, they are always sliding or trying to slide.
I can't comments on the textile stuff, as I never used it and don't think I ever would.
