I believe the optimal conditions to use these gloves based on experience are between 40 and 60 degree weather or in the rain. I initially was not a fan of these gloves because they were hard to get on and my fingers were still freezing in 30 degree weather, but I realized that they are still better than my other more summer gloves (Dainese Druids) below 60. Also, they are much easier to put on if you turn the outer cuff inside out and work on the pulling the glove over your hand with the inside cuff. Don't expect your hands to be completely warm as fingers do still get cold after some time, but I think this is as good as it gets without getting heated grips or a heated liner.

This is a top notch bike cover that will suit any bike. I have a ninja 250r and the sportbike size fits it perfectly. I literally use the cover everyday because I keep my bike in a parking structure in the city and seems to protect it really well against the elements.

This glove has all the right features for a great price. If you're a street rider looking for top notch protection and don't hit the track too much, these are the gloves to go for. They look awesome, are super protective, but also allow you to feel the controls very well. I highly recommend these.

The Roadster V3 is a performance boot specifically designed for aggressive roadster riders. Maximum Stability Thanks to the 360 degree ankle protection cockpit, which combines TPU molds and inner foam inserts, this boot offers improved stability as well as lateral impact protection. Impact Protection Using TPU inserts on the medial and lateral ankle level and toe box inserts in the forefoot, for increased protection in the event of a crash. Improved Traction Due to the outsole being derived from the PUMA 1000 V3 Racing boot, the traction has been improved for maximum grip.

These boots are meant for spirited and agressive street riding. They look really cool and are very comfortable, but they run a little small so I'd suggest going a size bigger than what you'd normally wear. You can definitely feel the controls in these boots and they have protection in the right places for street riding. You would need some sliders for the track, but otherwise this is a great boot.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this for added chest protection with my Dainese jacket and did not like the product at all because it isn't actually supposed to fit fully in the jacket pocket and isn't fully secured, which makes the jacket really hard to zip up too. I talked to a rep at Revzilla and they said this was better suited for track days, and I would agree that it is no doubt a heavily protective product, but Dainese did a poor job in designing these for everyday use and you will most likely leave these at home most of the time, so I returned it. If you have a Dainese jacket, I'd recommend going for an armored shirt instead if you really want the chest protection.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This is an amazing back protector that is not too bulky and doesnt get too hot but seems very sturdy and is a must to prevent serious back injuries in a crash scenario. I have a Dainese jacket and it fits very well in the jacket.

I, like the previous reviewer, ordered this in the full black version, but the picture posted originally had the "Dainese" logo on the sleeve in white and looked really nice, so I was also disappointed when I saw that they had changed the original design. The picture that Revzilla has now is what the full black version actually looks like. I decided to stick with the jacket because I loved the reflective logo in the back and reflective inserts on the sleeve, which is huge if you ride at night and increases chances that drivers will see you. It fits me like a glove and is very comfortable. I've ridden in some chilly weather (40s) without the thermal liner and didn't feel too cold. The jacket has no perforations so I imagine it could get hot in the summer if you're just cruising but its still a great jacket that looks awesome and is very protective.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is an awesome looking visor for an already badass looking helmet. View port is insanely huge and you have full vison. I've ridden in night and day with this visor and you can still see fine. Only downsides are it has to be screwed in to be changed and when you're stopped at traffic lights, it tends to fog up a bit, but can clear up pretty quickly once you start moving
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is an amazing helmet. Looks beautiful and really is extremely light. I feel that it is the perfect fit for my head shape once I broke it in properly. The only complaint I have to say about it is that the white paint chips easily, but otherwise its extremely comfortable and I feel very well protected.
Yes, I recommend this product.
