Got the helmet for every day use in hot and humid Cancun, already used it for commuting, on the highway and off road, is very nice, well made, lots of features and over all I’m very happy with it, however there are a few considerations: Is big and heavy, when is next to my other helmets is evident how wide it is. Nearly 2 Kg, feels heavy and after 3hrs riding my neck definitely felt it. Is very noisy at highway speeds, the hinges on the sides have an unbearable whistle, therefor a high windshield is a must. The ventilation holes are useless, but that is when you flip the chin around and you get all the air you need, oddly enough is also less noisy when is open.
Despite the previous, I’m very happy with it, the Sena radio fitted well and works perfectly. I doubt that will be used for highway or long traveling, but for city, hot and humid weather is fantastic.
There was a hard piece of foam on the forehead that I had to remove as was causing too much pressure, was fitted with hard glue and was hard to tear off, but after that fits very nicely.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Originally ordered size 44 and was too big, usually use size 9.5 US on trainers, went down to 43 and they fit nice with enough room for thick socks, the cut is narrow and the tip keeps the toes very compact, if you have wide chunky feet these are not the right choice.
The ventilation is enough to keep your foot from boiling in hot humid weather, but you really don’t feel it below 60 to 80 KPH, and is not as evident as a mesh glove, but it works, the mesh is made of very thick stiff material.
The protection on heel and toes feels very good, however the ankle and shin plates feel very soft, so I would consider it not enough for offroad or racing, definitely a touring/city boot.
You can walk on them, but they are not comfortable, the toe cap pushes on the top of my feet as I bend it, will keep my sandals in the backpack. Very comfy on the bike and despite of the mesh are easy to clean. The sole feels hard and durable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Extremely happy so far, the cordura seems to be position where is needed and the air flows very well, everyone has mentioned how good they look while I have them on. My inseam is about 31” and they fit slightly long while walking, but on the bike are perfect, so didn’t have to cut anything.
The long zipper on the side is very convenient to put them on and off, and the armor on the knees can be adjusted with internal Velcro, added a small piece of bungee behind my calf to keep the armor tight against the top of my shin.
The hips have memory foam padding, which resulted in being too soft on a slow speed crash, so I added a hard plastic plate from other protectors to the exterior and now feels safer. After the crash the Cordura material is still like new.
The cut is roomy enough to wear shorts under, and has a long stretch part on the sides that would accommodate a large belly.
The liner is very good, haven’t had a shower yet but found out that the rain liner is just big enough to be used over instead of under, this’d add extra protection against the water.
As a note of caution, the product is made in China, so if you are going to have it internationally shipped might be an issue, as it is in Mexico with Chinese textiles.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Chose this jacket because of the cordura, CE armor, air flow and price, I’m very happy with it, lots of nice features that make it enjoyable. Live in Cancun and keeps me cool as long as I’m moving.
Had a slow speed crash this weekend on a dirt road with a big patch of fine fluffy sand, landed on my side and rolled a few meters, ending up in the hard dirt, the jacket is completely undamaged and I only got a small scratch on my arm from and internal Velcro, found that the protectors tend to slide a little bit, solved it by adding a piece of bungee on the forearm and now everything is perfectly in place, this is not a downside as I have never had a jacket that fits perfectly, was just a 5 mins tweak.
The cut is definitely on the chubby side, although it has straps to adjust it be aware that is not at all a slim fit.
The liners are very good, haven’t had a shower yet but found out that the rain liner is just big enough to be used over the jacket instead of under, this’d add extra protection against the water, with minimum visibility sacrifice as also has reflective strips.
Overall I’m very happy, got it with the Airglide pants and they are awesome!!
