Great for wearing under your full race leathers, or your leather trousers if you're sporting a two piece set-up... Could also be used to add a little padding under jeans for your commute. Definitely eases the in and out process, and adds a little extra hip and thigh protection at the same time. These are the "Hot Weather" pants, so they are made of a pretty durable mesh polyester, as opposed to your regular moisture wicking garment.

The good:
Graphics and finish are excellent, exactly what you'd expect from a "high end" lid.
Fit is good, for comparison I usually wore a Medium in Shoei's and Arai's, and a medium is what I have in the RPHA-10.
Comfort liner is soft, and doesn't irritate my skin anywhere. A big plus for one with irritable skin.
The bad:
Airflow could be better, and the shield tends to whistle at times.
The anit-fog insert is a kind of a pain to install/uninstall. And when it is installed it tends to make contact with the shield here and there, creating an effect similar to when tint bubbles up in auto glass. Not very pleasing. So, I just use an anti-fog spray, which seems to work just fine as long as it's applied often.
Overall, I'm very happy with this helmet. HJC just needs to do some fine tuning for the next generation.

These are great for adding some extra shock absorbing to your off-road boots. Threw them in my Gaerne G-Reacts to take up some extra room, and to cushion the footbed better, since Gaerne apparently forgot off-road boots do good with insoles. Not a bad deal either.

 Alpinestars Supertech-R Vented Boots
Alpinestars Supertech-R Vented Boots
Alpinestars Supertech-R Vented Boots Alpinestars Supertech R boot is the newest high performance/racing boot, constructed with hi-tech micro-fiber and designed to meet light weight and performance requirements in top level racing. The front flex area is constructed with a soft TPU mesh with shaped reliefs for abrasion resistance and natural forward and back movements. Flexible accordion synthetic leather at Achilles allows natural movement. Top gaiter follows leg contour and is made of flexible high-grade synthetic leather reinforced with rubber for maintaining shape. Full length micro-fiber panel on inner side of the boot provides a smooth surface for excellent grip and feel against the bike and protects from abrasion and heat. A lightweight rubber compound sole offers excellent grip and feel and allows for natural flex as the rider changes position and pressure on the foot-peg. Strategically positioned ventilation in heel and shin TPU, and soft TPU mesh on forefoot guides air through the boot. The separate inner boot works with outer boot to form a protective system and external TPU shin protection wraps around to outer calf and is engineered to spread and dissipate impact energy across the entire surface while remaining compact. Clip-on toe-slider provides excellent feedback and protects the outer toe box structure from abrasion. (Upgradeable to a magnesium slider). Replaceable TPU heel plate slider protects from impact and reduces friction in the event of an off. Outside entry/exit has stretch accordion panel for a close fit and ease of entrance and removal. Bio-mechanical ankle bracing boot has double hinged inner and outer torsion bars to progressively absorb flex and rotation stress on the ankle and reduce pressure and hyper extension injury to lower leg joints. Inner ankle brace constructed with fiberglass charged polyamide and ergonomically designed closed cell padding for protection and comfort.

First impressions is they're great boots. I already own a pair with the GP Tracks graphic, that I've had since about 2009 or 2010. Great boot, and I've definitely put them through their paces.
My old pair is a size 41 Euro, and they fit great. So I ordered these in the same size. They seemed to fit right out of the box, due to what I'm calling a slightly narrower foot bed. However, after riding in them for about 5 hours or so, I realized I should've ordered a size down. So a size 40, as opposed to a 41 would've been best.
So I'm going to throw these on eBay, and most likely order another pair in a size smaller.
Moral of the story/review? Order one size smaller.
Btw, if you ever encounter issues with your Supertech R's, Alpinestars is a breeze to work with for repairs, warranty, and servicing of their products. This alone makes them worth the extra cash for me.

The good:
First off, sizing; I usually wear a men's size 8 in most athletic shoes, and 41 EU/7.5 US in most riding/race boots. Needless to say, the sizing corresponds more along the lines of your favorite athletic shoes. I ordered a size 8, and the fit is spot on, if ever so slightly narrow. Those with wider feet may want to go a size up, for good measure.
Comfort is as good as your favorite pair of DC, Vans, or Converse, though slightly stiffer. They feel great off the bike.
Overall the quality seems to be good, with the outer leather being rather thick, and after a couple commutes to work they're breaking in nicely. Waterproofing also seems to be good, seeing I managed to step right into a puddle and my feet remained dry.
The caveats:
They don't breathe, but I expected this from a waterproof shoe.
The laces are too long, and there's no way to secure them to the shoe once tied (no tongue pocket or velcro fastening). I remedied this by knotting the laces at a comfortable medium that allows me to slip the shoes on, while permitting a certain level of snugness, then I tucked the excess lacing under the insole at the arch. Don't even notice them now.
Protective factor is near the non-existent zone on the protection scale, other than providing a stiffer shoe with over-ankle coverage, but then I'm used to full-on sport boots.
Recommended for:
I'd say these are good shoes for riding around town in the spring, fall, or mildly inclement weather. Worn with heavy denim or riding jeans, they do great for city commuting, jaunting down to the market, or just meeting up for grub with your peeps. You might even get away wearing them with your work/office slacks.
Not recommended for:
I wouldn't use these for spirited canyon carving, excessively hot weather, track days/racing (hope no one has tried), or long distance touring. The needed functionality and protection just aren't there for heavier duty riding activities. These will be my "around town and commuting" moto-shoes.

Bought this to upgrade the back pad in my Tech-Air Jacket. The jacket is a size 38US/48EU and I purchased the size medium, perfect fit. Love the flexibility of the back protector, and air flow is what you'd expect from a piece of flexible, high-density foam with holes in it: It works, but could be better. Overall very happy with the upgrade.

Great pair of leather track pants, I'd say sizing is slightly larger when you go by your waist measurement. I am 5'7", 144lbs, 38 in chest, 30 in waist (31 in or so measured at the naval), I went with a 46 euro, 30 us. The pants fit, and they do this comfortably, but I'd say I could've ordered a 44 euro for a tighter fit, but I like the slight extra room so I can wear padded shorts, or a pair of gym shorts underneath. Paired the pants with the Astars Tech Air jacket for a great two piece suit. Would definitely buy them again.

Finally an Astars jacket that fits as a sport jacket should, with a couple of minor exceptions:
I am 5'7" and 144lbs, 38 in chest, 30 in waist, pretty athletically built with minimal body fat. I ordered the 48 euro based on my chest measurement and it fits great as far as the chest, shoulders, and waist are concerned. I also upgraded the back pad with the bionic insert and love it. My only gripe is the forearms are just a smidge too long (1/4 inch or so), but this is inherent of most jackets for me since I am of lesser height, so I can live with it.
Air flow is amazing unless you wear a backpack, but this is true with most vented jackets. I also like that it comes with a wind-blocking liner for cooler days.
While the aero hump is a bit larger than on most jackets and does tap the rear of my helmet at times, I've determined this is a non-issue since it only happens if I really crank my neck back, as it does not affect my ability to do head checks.
I paired the jacket with Astars Track pants, and it makes a pretty comfortable two piece suit when mated together.
All in all, glad it went on clearance so I could somewhat afford to get a higher end jacket ;-)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm making the switch from an Alpinestars "high end" Tech 1-R suit to this Spidi Track Wind Pro, and I gotta say this is the best suit I've owned to date. The quality is top notch, and it's an inherently comfortable suit, that feels like it will require next to no break in time. This is a preliminary review though, seeing how it's well below freezing outside at this time of year.
Sizing: Sizing is definitely true to the size chart provided by Spidi. I am 5'7" tall, 140lbs, with an athletic build and a 38" chest. The size 38us/48eu fits perfect with a back protector in and it's definitely suited for guys with slender waist lines, which I love. In short, the fit is the best out of all the suits I've owned, and I've owned A-stars, AXO, Pilot, Dainese, and so on...
Comfort: The comfort in this suit is awesome. I've only worn it around the house and on one little ride around the block, but I can tell it is going to be an excellent performer. Once you get all the armor adjusted to where you like it, it's like a second skin. It feels unrestrictive and the airflow is ample, and the hydroback is going to come handy on those warmer days, which is an added bonus to this suit over other brands for sure.
Protection: In regards to protection, I'd say this suit is in the "good" range. The armor is more flexible than other brands, which does make it more comfortable than others. This is where I do have one minor issue however, the hip pads "float" in the liner, rather than being fixed to the leather somehow, such as with velcro. This makes it so you need to adjust the hip pads everytime you put the suit on. This is a minor issue, but thought it was worth mentioning.
Overall, very satisfied with this suit, and as always, satisfied with Revzilla. Would definitely buy again.

First off, these are super high quality pants. The fit is true to size in my opinion. I'm 5'7", athletic build, 140#, and can fit in a 29x30 jean. The size 46 fit perfectly, and seeing how I wear a 46 in most other brands of pants, I'd say they run true to size.
Super comfy off the bike and on, my only complaint is that the stretch material in the crotch seems it should extend a bit further towards the seat of the pant, as the leather makes it hard to initially get your knee out when out at the track, or riding agressively in the canyon. It took a full day at the track and several sessions before the leather stretched enough for me to finally get my knee on the ground. Other than that that, excellent quality and build. Would buy again, as long as dainese remedies the crotch issue.
