I purchased these gloves mainly for the cordless battery functionality. They fulfill that function extremely well. They heat up fast and even at the lowest setting, my hands are kept warm. My tolerance for the cold is very high however.
Batteries do need to be purchased separately which does make them quite expensive. It does also need a temperature controller for wired functionality, which also makes them quite expensive.
I've had trouble wearing them over any kind of cold weather motorcycle gear. Given that I do have to note that, I do only wear jackets with armor that extend to the wrists. They do fit that way but not easily.
I have wide hands and I do not have trouble with these gloves even wearing size Small gloves. My hands are not small by any measure but on a superbike, slightly longer digits of size Medium were detrimental to bike controls.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love these shoes. They are very stylish, decently protective and most importantly, quite thin and flexible.
When I bought these I was specifically looking for shoes I can ride and drive in. (Recently got myself a Subaru BRZ ^.^) Great feedback on the bike and from the clutch/brake pedals on my car.
There are a lot of high viz shoes out there now but to me most of them SCREAM "Look at me" which makes me cringe. These are bright (Black/White/Yellow version) and very attractive without screaming at you.
These are my first Alphinestar gear I've ever purchased and I am definitely buying going to try more after this.
I normally wear 9 wide or 9.5 and a 9.5 pair of these fit slightly narrow but still great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the first short cuff motorcycle gloves I've ever owned.
I have 2 pairs of high end race gauntlets and two weatherproof gauntlets.
These are extremely comfortable. When I'm wearing my gauntlets they are the very last piece of gear I put on before heading out. Not so with these. My helmet is the last piece I have to put on, which might not seem like much but it's great especially in certain climates.
Not as much protection as compared to my gauntlets but that is to be expected. However I am not too worried with these on.
Air flow is great. It keeps you cool without feeling like your hands are exposed to direct wind.
I personally prefer the badass look of a full race gauntlet but these are still great looking.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this shield with a clear and tinted inserts.
They both work well, prevent fogging completely.
However I would recommend getting the "Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Ready Face Shield w/ Brow Vents", also sold by Rezilla.
Much wider vision, doesn't even look it has pinlock inserts. Looks like a normal shield.

The Full Metal Pro RS Gloves is the upgraded version of the original Pro.
Added features:
-Sliders to the thumb and the wrist
-An upgraded palm slider
-Elastications to the thumb and the third digit.
-Leather flap to protect and keep the strap in place
-Added grip pads to the index/middle finger for the throttle (only right hand)
-Added style touches
As with anything Dainese, these gloves are very well built and styled.
Fingers are a bit long for my hand, I have wide feet and palms.
The added wrist slider for the top side of the gloves are nice but I don't think they interface with the hard part protection of Dainese race jackets.
It may be because I wore an underlayer, mid layer, removable jacket liner and the jacket itself under the glove, but it was quite difficult to pull the gloves all the way up. But I'm convinced it won't be as much a problem after braking in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been wearing these gloves for about 8 months now.
These are very comfortable, protective and well worth the price.
When I first opened the package I was a bit dismayed because it looked like the yellow kevlar stiching around each digits were very uncleanly finished. There were a lot of small loops of kevlar everywhere. It didn't seem like there were any in the review video. But being what they are, they are extremely tough and don't tear off or fray. I still do wish it looked cleaner however.
I originally got a large pair of these and then exchanged them for a medium. Looking back I should have gotten small.
I have fairly wide hands and it was very difficult to put on even the large size but I knew it was too long for my fingers.
Medium size gloves did fit very well at first in the fingers and quite tight for my palms but when they broke in, fingers were too long and palms were just right (I can fit glove liners in them#.
I prefer the end of each digits to touch the glove when in riding position but now there is enough room to bother me when I'm going for the brake or clutch levers.
Other than the size and the stitching #which I am convinced it's suppose to look so) every aspect of these gloves amazes me. Looks great, great protection, well venting durable and did I mention great looking?
Well worth the price.

I put a set of these tires on my Suzuki Boulevard M50 about a year ago. These have held up fantastically. I've ridden 5,000 miles on these tires and it looks like it has just been broken in.
On dry road I can ride and make corners, scrapping exhaust and footboards, all day long.
For the most part I have not had trouble in rain. I've ridden in light and heavy rain. The ride feels stable even through small puddles (I avoided big ones#. I did have two lowsides on these tires right after and during light rains. I think it was the road being slick rather than the tires that cuased them but I thought it was worth mentioning #All the gear I bought on Revzilla kept be safe and sound)
.
Tires themselves look great with the this tread design.
All it's features, especially it's longevity, provide a huge bang for the buck factor for these tires.

I bought the short version of these pants, they still look awesome and fit well. These are admittely quite expensive but still well worth it.
I went to the size chart and bought accordly, it's a bit large but all is well with it's adjusting straps.
I was able to fully experience it's protective features when I had a low side yesterday. It was around a corner in the rain (which these pants kept me quite dry from) at around 35 mph. Padding on the hips definately helped, my hip feels a bit sore but no visible bruising. The pants held up extremely well after sliding on it for maybe 20-30 feet. Absoluetly no tears or even a sign of a slide. Absolutely amazed.
These are quite comfortable and do give enough grip on the tank. It is also very comfortable for cruiser riding as well. The removable thermal liner is quite nice as well. Haven't felt cold yet even in this crazy 45 degrees nights in October o.O There is enough airflow that it kept me comfortable during this year's unusually hot summer.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL).

I switched to this one from Scorpion EXO 900 for fit reasons.
Scorpion was too narrow for me and this one fits me perfectly. Even after hours of riding I don't feel that headache I did with Scorpion.
I'm still in the process of breaking this helmet in so it's a bit tight on my cheeks but I suspect it would fit better in a while.
It does have 5mm removable sponge foam layer on both cheek pads so even if it does feel tight after a while, there is an option before buying thinner cheek pads (comes in 5mm increments; stock with medium is 30)
Only thing that bothers me is that the visor it came with, and the extra tinted one I purchased, fogs up quite easily. I'll be applying some anti fog solution on both but I did not have to for the Scorpion.
Wind flow is excellent. It actually feels like there is wind going through my hair. Noise level is on par with Scorpion which is pretty quite. I suspect this helmet is even quieter when riding with vents closed but I wasn't able to ride like that for long because of the fog in my visors.
There is enough room for glasses/sunglasses or speakers for communication devices to fit comfortably without much pressure points building up.
This helmet feels incredibly light when riding. It is also extremely easy to turn side to side. Peripheral vision is amazing as well.
Overall I would recommend this helmet wholeheartedly, especially during this Holiday sales. 460 dollars and 20 dollars of revzilla cash for next purchase for this helmet is a steal.
Yes, I recommend this product.
