 Dainese Scalpel Gloves
Dainese Scalpel Gloves
Dainese Scalpel Gloves The city lights, the roar of an engine in the dead of night, a motorcycle flashes past the buildings, carbon and steel reflected in the windows. Precious materials and careful construction bring this glove to the latest state-of-the-art feeling and performance. The Scalpel is equipped with a palm made in refined Pittards leather, steel inserts covered with carbon with extraordinary stiffness over the knuckles and the back of the hand, and a single leather panel on little finger side of the hand.

 Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet
Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet
Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet The new Arai Corsair V Nicky 3 Stars Helmet proves again that Arais main focus is the experienced rider who knows what a real helmet should do and have. It doesnt fling fashion at you it advanced the art of building better helmets for riders. Its improvements and innovations reach down to the smallest details. Why Partly obsession. Partly because Arai believes every part of a helmet is interrelated in both design and function. We dont believe in change for the sake of change, fad, or marketing shock value. Features Newly designed shell with Hyper-Ridge around the bottom enhances shell strength while providing a larger bottom opening Larger bottom opening promotes ease of putting on and taking off the helmet Peripheral belting across the forehead area of the shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining flexibility, low weight and shell size Larger upper vent tabs make operating the vents easier even with thick winter gloves New Arai SAI shield with Super AdSis shield system New SAI shield is 5mm longer in each side and provides a wider field of view New SAI shield and base plates are exclusive to Corsair V helmets Latest generation of Dry Cool line has a new silver-grey color Rear mounting straps are slightly re-positioned exclusively to the Corsair V Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat Cheek pads have the exclusive Emergency Release Tab feature Newly designed side exhaust cowls exhaust heat as well as add lateral stability at speed Enhanced air inlets of the new DF-9 diffuser increase airflow efficiency Brow vents now duct air into the temple area and out the side vents for maximum cooling Exclusive AirWing provides unprecedented aerodynamic performance with 5 distinct positions DOT approved Snell M2010 Certified

Pictures don't do this helmet justice!!! Looks just awesome in person! The brightness on the colors make it almost an effective high visibility without being the typical hi viz yellow. Have had some issues with fogging when it was 30 degrees out. But you can manage and if needed there are the pin lock options, I might consider buying that.
The fit is snug, but probably because I have always been wearing a helmet one size too large. I was very concerned with the snug fit, because I was worried it could be too tight!! But the guys at Revzilla were awesome and even looked at pictures on my head shape and measurements I emailed them. That was amazing customer service! They were right, after just wearing it to work five times with a commute of 30 minutes each way, it doesn't feel too tight at all.
I haven't been able to try it in the heat, but with the temps up to 50 on my commute home, I opened up the top vents, and wow it vents!!!
Highly recommend!!!

I purchased this jacket to commute to work from VA to DC in the cold months on a 2003 Yamaha R6. Style is great! Fit is great. One negative - the zelcro on the neck and the wrist is not that great - kind of hard to velcro the wrists with winter gloves - wish they they made it more velcro around the wrist - and the same thing with the velcro on the neck. But you can live with it. The warmth is great!!! I wore it on my highway commute as high speeds with a windchill of around freezing and little below - and was warm without anything under it other than a work shirt.
Unfortunately, I did recently crash test it - I had my back tire slide out on a turn - going maybe 30-40 mph. I made contact with the cement on my left shoulder and elbow - and slide a little while. The armour saved my shoulder and elbow 100% - the shoulder/elbow did rip/shred a little - but just a little - the stiching on the zipper on the vent on ripped too a little - but it kept my skin away from the cement. The one thing that happen was my elbow got slammed into my ribs and bruised them - wish they would add some padding there. But I can't complain - as I walked away and actually was able to ride home (a crash cage I put on the bike years ago saved the bike). Looking to see if Alpinestars can repair the jacket - but if not, I will be buying another one!
As for purchasing from Revzilla - this was my first time - and all I can say is it was perfect - already purchased my new helmet from them that I needed after the little get off.
