These gloves are heavy, thick and will work well in cold weather. They are bulky, thick and heavy. I know I just said that but holding the throttle gets tedious with them on. I know I will stay warm this winter though. They are goretex and full leather. Two pluses.
The glaring problem I have with these gloves are the knuckle guard. It is attached on three sides only. On the back ( facing me ) is a flap. I am sure its to allow more movement but with regards to safety, its a hazard. If I come off and am sliding palm up, this pocket can catch on anything and everything.
I see it could hang on something and jerk my hand and arm around. No lose ends on clothes.
I expected more thought in the safety. Titanium? Really? Makes me think of Robo Cop.

The GPS navigates well everywhere I have been. It also integrates well with helmet communication, phone, and gps. I have phone calls, navigation instruction and siri satellite entertainment. Also i have loaded playlists, topo maps as well as navigation maps for around the world. It works very well. Even the touch screen works pretty good with gloves on although that takes a bit of practice.
I have been using all kinds of GPS for many years and this one is the most complete.
Works very well.

I wanted to be able to answer phone without undressing. The UClear allows me to talk on the phone while riding. I am deaf in one ear and don't hear well out the other. I ride with ear plugs to protect whats left of my hearing. I do have to turn up the volume while riding with ear plugs. That said the folks on the other end say they can hear me clearly. Its nice to be able to catch calls without having to pull my helmet off, much less stopping.
I have listened to the MP3 player a little and works fine.
Instillation was easy I have a Arai RXQ, with pockets for speakers already there. Volume control is good with gloves on. There are a bunch of functions with various buttons. Best to do while stopped. Too much to tinker with while riding.
All in all I am very pleased with this unit. I was worried that the clarity of voice conversation would be impaired- not the case. This unit works well for conversing while riding.

Although I am a single rider, I wanted a way to use my phone without 'undressing'. I linked the headset with my phone and am able to take calls while riding, talk with my gps and phone for hands free convenience. I ware foam ear plugs while riding and can still have clear conversations. Everyone I have spoken with can hear me clearly. The boomless system works great, even while traveling at highway speeds. The listeners can tell I'm riding but can hear me fine.
Install was super easy, Recharging is quick too. It has controls that are easily used with gloves on and once you figure out the system, its easy.

I purchased these boots with focus on protection. I was pleasantly surprised at how incredibly comfortable they are. Riding around you feel protected but when you walk in them right from the start they are comfortable and protective. You do feel all the support working but it doesn't interfere with walking. Really supportive. I'm very impressed with these boots.
Yes, I recommend this product.
