I was so excited when the helmet arrived, but after a detailed look excitement turned into disappointment...
First let me tell the pros
1- It's a very light helmet, and the aerodynamics are well enough designed it doesn't drag you at speeds of 100 m/h
2- It's a quiet helmet (with the earpads)
3- The photocromic shield is a very nice feature
4- Air intake; top intake simply RULES, chin intake I haven't figured out if it works as the 3 position lever works the same
Now the cons...
The first thing I've noticed, It's narrow enough to hurt your temples and very hard to put it, but once inside it fits snuggly but as Lazer uses a unique size shell there's no extra room for chin, mine touches the chinbar. As it runs small maybe it's a good idea to get an extra cheeck pads in the next size larger.
The paintwork is poor, you can see unpainted areas near the chin bar air intake as well as in the hinge area.
The linner fabric looks cheap (plastic like material round the collar padding).
The ear inserts are bulky enough to press your ears against your head in an uncomfortable way.
The grid in the chin bar intake is galvanized but in the product video looks chromed so it´s not as shinny as depicted.
The pinlock doesn't cover all the faceshield area at the top so you can't drive 3/4 because the pinlock rim interferes with your vision.
Last but not least, just after a month of daily use (600 Km) a face shield screw went off...
Designed in Belgium but... made in China.
Consider to invest a little more and get a really good modular.

I was so pleased when I got my hands into these. NIce packing, nice presentation. The manufacture looked almost perfect, all the stitches aligned, all the components are almost tailored, low profile but with last generation materials.
The fit was excelent and true to fit chart, but I´ve noticed that the dry chamber is a little bit roomier than the breezy one. In the breezy chamber the glove fit me perfect and in the dry chamber the glove is like 4mm larger. I know it's imposible to make both chambers fit the same but it's good to know this. They fit inside and over my jacket sleeves. They are a good choice for warm weather, the perforated leather delivers!

Nice outer shell, fully waterproof! The microfleece can be a little too hot but I'm wating for colder days to wear them every day. The fact that the gloves have two layers can make them a little stiff but I think they will get softer with daily usage.

The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported

A pair of gloves that fit true to the size chart. Great breathability, good protection in the knuckles, nice fabric. Manufacture can be a little better but it´s ok for the price.

Easy on aplying, the only thing you have to do is assure that every part of the garment gets moist. Then just wait until the garment dries.
Only one issue, it smells a little funny for about 3 or 4 days after the application, then everything comes back to normal.

I got a pair of these and I'm very satisfied with the way they fit. I'm 5'8 and got a Medium Short size, they are roomy enough to wear over any pair of jeans. The protections feel a little below but once you are on your bike, they place right where they should!

 REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
A removable lining is not unique. But a removable lining that looks like a stylish jacket on its own is. The DRAGON offers that and more as a true example of a four-season textile jacket, with all the advantages of the REVIT! 3-layer integrated system. This makes it perfect for a variety of climates and weather conditions and a great 4-season jacket choice. This jacket will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Pant but feature-wise the Dragon Jacket matches up most closely with the REV'IT Sand Pants. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PWRshell 750D, Cordura 1000D, high density polyester 600D, Lorica Insulation detachable thermal liner Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 65 polyamide, 34 polyester, 1 other fibres lining 100 polyester thermal liner 100 polyamide (insulation 100 polyester) membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating) Protection Knox CE protection at shoulders and elbows, EVA foam at back Visibility reflection at back and upper arms ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability flexisnap XL, adjustment straps at waist and upper arms, adjustment tabs at under arms and cuffs, adjustment drawcord at hips Ventilation VCS I zippers at back, chest and under arms Features comfort collar, short connection zipper, separate wearable hydratex G-liner Pockets stash pockets, membrane storage pocket, hand warmer pockets, inner pockets

The CAD designed garment works as you ride and there are no bulky parts.
I'm 5'8", 154 lbs and the medium size fits perfectly around chest, waist and sleeves. I find this jacket to fit true to size as the size chart reads.
I live in Mexico City and some days when is hot the air flow it's a little bit poor, I would say is a 3/4 season jacket.
