For the price, a very good shoe. A bit tight across the foot, which is usual for me as my foot is wide, I usually wear EEE running shoe.
Fairly comfortable with a bit of flex and there is no drama operating the pedals with this shoe on. Covers both sides of the ankle but no more.
Lace length seems perfect with no messing around to keep them contained. May only be an issue with the larger sizes.
My jeans cover the boot almost completely when on the bike so the ventilation is hard to judge.
All in all a great boot for the money and I would recommend to anyone.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Used the size chart and the jacket is a good snug fit. Looks good and whilst warm on a 86°F day, I don't think there are many jackets that wouldn't be. Armor in the elbows and shoulders is not even noticeable once the jacket is on. I am very happy with this purchase and interested to see how it handles cooler weather with the zip in liner in place!
Was good value for the money at $219 but I wish I'd got it at $160 it's at now!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got these because they were cheapish and seemed to have what Bike jeans needed, going by the description.
I am 5'10 and these are insanely long. They are almost past the toe of my boot and until I get them taken up, I have to turn the 1.25 inch hem up three times and they still hang just past my heel when standing. Once on the bike they are just above the heel of my boot. I will probably need to have them taken up about 4 inches. Being a bit of a shorty, I expect to have to take up jeans by a bit, but 4"??
Kevlar in the knees is more than sufficient, but it is lacking in the seat and what is in the hips is only about 3" wide and just below the belt line, which in my opinion is fairly useless. There is no provision to add armor to the knees if desired.
These pants are a baggy style jean and I like the look and they are very comfortable, but the functionality for what they are supposed to be designed for is way down. I have seen much cheaper pants with a lot more kevlar.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Keep in mind that I am a total newb and this is my first helmet! Can't state shape etc as I have no comparison!
I used the size chart provided and the helmet is a good fit but there could be slightly more length to the straps as i have to work them up my face before taking the helmet off or they grab at my cheeks, but once I figured that out, all good!
Seems to be a nice light helmet and I used it today on a fairly warm day over 30°C (86°F) and the airflow around the lower face was excellent. Around the top of the head was also good.
Can't really comment on protection and hope I never find out!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Scorpion's Cool Hand premium nylon mesh glove flows lots of air, provides excellent protection and fits great too Four-box panel precurved fingers are expensive but worth it Powerstretch knuckles and an articulated back make for a great-fitting, comfortable glove, and silicon traction pads in the palm help you keep your grip

I used the size chart given but the gloves are a very tight fit. Any tighter and they would not fit my hand! Get a size bigger than the chart suggests. I'm hoping for some stretch so that they are comfortable...
