Unless I'm heading to the track or sunday mountain ride, these are the gloves I wear (warm weather). I love the previous 4 Stroke, and managed to make the EVO even better.
I had to replace my previous 4 Stroke because it was finally wearing out after 4 years of duty. We're talking 3 season daily commutes. One of the finger seams finally gave up.
The EVO version is pretty awesome, they stuffed everything I love about my Full Metal Pro's into this $190 street glove. What more can you ask for? The new palm leather is much better also. There's better feel inside and will wear better outside. The new palm and pinky sliders are also just straight badass.

I'm an inbetween size in AGV, sitting right in the middle of XL and XXL. XXL would be much too loose after break-in so I went with an XL Corsa.
With the stock pads, even after break-in my jaw/cheek would hurt during rides because of how snug it is. Not to mention my ear would pinch whenever I put on the helmet (more on that later). I bought one size up (XXL) according to the size chart to get a thinner pad (40mm vs 34mm). Initial fit is very snug and comfortable and allows for an even better fit throughout the rest of the helmet. Judging from how the 40mm pad broke in, this should be perfect.
The only criticism I have on AGV cheek pads are that the ear cutout (little foam piece you can remove) is no where near as good as Arai's. Because AGV has gone with the one piece fabric wrap, it doesn't create the nice little nook/space for your ears. When putting on a snug helmet (proper fit), the neck roll may pinch your ear down as the helmet goes on. Though I would imagine this is very good for noise control, I can't say for sure because I wear earplugs all the time.

This is a big upgrade in the comfort department for Dainese back protectors. All the stretch and movement allows for a great wearing protector that doesn't feel like a stiff board on your back.
However, it fails in one crucial aspect. Spinal hyperextension. If you take this product and bend it backwards, it gives no appreciable resistance. I see this as an important factor in protecting your back and spine. Lacking this, it provides nothing more than shock absorption.
I suggest a Dainese Wave G instead.

If the stiffness of Dainese back protectors bother you than this is definitely the upgrade for you. While I personally never had an issue with the stiffer armors, this guy is definitely more comfortable.
The only gripe I have with it is that it shifts around a bit more than Dainese's armor. Since it's not shape formed, I'm not confident it's always sitting in the right spot.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Dainese Air Frame offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for Dainese Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

It's light, it's comfortable and it moves a TON of air. Wish they made white panels on the shoulder/backs to combat the summer sun.
The only gripe I have is that there's no lower back extension on this jacket. The 360 zip is higher up because of it and when joined together, it ends up tugging on your shoulders and pulling your pants up.
If you have a long torso and like riding with the 360 zipped up, I would try both pieces on together to see how it wears on you.

My previous mesh jacket was an Air Frame, and while it moved a ton of air it lacked comfort features. It had no extended back so the 360 zip was too high for anyone with a slightly long torso, pulling either the jacket down or your pants up beyond comfort. This jacket remedies that. It's also got a ton of stretch panels to keep you as comfortable as possible in the summer heat. One less thing to distract you from your riding.

I use this for my 20mi commute into work year round. Works great, very convenient, no installation required. just grab and go. The magnets coupled with the rubber bottom keeps the bag in place, will not slide or come loose. I've had it overfilled (bulging) with gopro's and clothes and it still did not budge.
It also has a strap that can convert the bag into a single strap backpack so you can easily carry it around.
One thing you do have to keep in mind is to never put the contact side of that bag down on the ground, if you do, make sure you dust it off thoroughly unless you like your tank full of scratches.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have both the SAI max vision pinlock and this guy. The pinlock pins are tiny plastic screws that are finicky and the seal sometimes break if they're not done up correctly. This is a much better solution.
Note: It's a bit hard to close/lock down at first because of the upper seal but you get used to it.
It does still fog up a little bit right by the breath guard area when you're stopped at a stop light, but my pinlock did the same thing.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai RX-Q / Corsair V / Signet-Q Cheekpads Replacement cheek pads for Arai RX-Q, Signet-Q and Corsair V Helmets Arai's truly unique sculpted cheekpad shape cradles the head from underneath for a level of comfort and security that needs to be felt to be believed. With more surface area, it moves away from the typical pressure fit to a more comfort fit based on the design's cradle support. The design was influenced by Arai's F-1 drivers, the most demanding of all for fit. Emergency Cheekpad Release System This now-copied groundbreaking Arai safety innovation was specifically developed to allow easier access to an injured rider by sliding out easily, making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel Cheek Pad Adjustability A cheek pad feature found only on Arai RX-Q and Signet-Q Helmets is a removable 5MM layer of foam. This allows more room if desired without having to purchase an entirely new cheek pad set. All cheek pads are interchangeable between the different helmet sizes. Remember, if you need more room in the helmet you need to order a smaller (thinner) cheek pad. To make a helmet tighter, you would need to buy a larger (thicker) cheek pad.

My original pads from my XXL Corsair V have compacted enough after a year that my helmet was sliding down, obstructing my upper vision in a sport position.
Got these pads in a thicker size to replace, along with a smaller/thicker comfort liner. So far so good, feels like a brand new helmet.

I ride all year round in the north east. During winter months, it's all commute riding, 20mi round trip daily. I wanted a better solution than a big fluffy winter glove.
I could barely feel these, maybe a slight tingle between my fingers when at a stop light, even when turned up max. It was no different than just wearing my winter gloves. In fact it made it worse because now I have a liner shifting around underneath.
It just wasn't good for me.
No, I do not recommend this product.
