These are my second pair of Icon touch-screen gloves. The first pair were the Justice model and they lasted for about 2-years of mild use. The stitching came apart at the thumb. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of options for motorcycle gloves that are also touch-screen, so I bought another pair.
This pair is quite a bit different. It has leather going over the knuckles as opposed to the hard plastic on the Justice's. Unfortunately because the leather is stretch over the knuckles it is prone to the leather being roughed up a bit. The lining seems better than the previous model and will probably be a little warmer in the winter. They also changed the direction in which the velcro straps down, I'm still getting used to this.
Overall, a good glove. I just hope this model will last longer then the previous one. I wasn't too happy about having to buy a new pair 2 years later.

Depending on riding conditions, the intercom range between two riders is up to 700 meters. Adding a third unit/rider increases the intercom range up to an additional 700 meters. Add a fourth rider and the entire group can communicate up to 2100 meters (1.3 miles) and so forth, in full duplex intercom mode. With the latest firmware, the HBC200 adds connectivity with other brands of Bluetooth communicators, Multipoint Bluetooth connections for syncing multiple phones, iPods or GPS units and Advanced Private Intercom.

This is my second Uclear purchase. I bought the HBC100 about a year ago and loved it. When the new HBC200 came out I knew it was time to upgrade and get a dual setup.
The buttons are easier to push then the old model but still lack responsiveness at times. They also changed a couple of button commands from the old unit. As an example I used to push the main button once to stop and again to play music. It now requires two quick pushes. It may not sound like a big deal, but when you're used to it one way it takes a while to get used to it another way.
The installation was a breeze for both my wife's and my helmet. However, in her Bilt helmet you can feel the ear pieces protruding a little and resting on your ears. In my Shoei RF-1100 I don't feel them at all. Once installed it did take us a good 15-minutes to get the headset to synch to one another. Once done, the sound quality was excellent.
Overall, these are great headsets. The sound quality is excellent and you get stereo sound in your helmet. I like not having a boom too. They're going to cost you more then other headsets, but for me it was worth the extra money.

My only complaint is the visor isn't tinted dark enough. But it's so much better then trying to squeeze sunglasses on with the clear shield. So for that I'm happy.
