Nolan N104 Outlaw Helmet Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum, when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

So, this is the first helmet I have ever owned, so I dont have much to go off of. So I will do my best.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this helmet, Its very spacious for the most part, could be a little more space around the ears, but its no biggie. My glasses fit fine with the visor down and everything. I will say, it does get a bit loud when riding at high speeds, but nothing deafening or causing the need for ear plugs.
My only real gripe with this helmet is the "sun visor". It is more or less completely useless for me. It's unfortunate because it was one of the reasons I got it. With the visor down, its pretty much dead center in my eye, so I have the lines of the helmet plus the line of the bottom of the sun visor. I cannot ride safely and comfortably enough to concentrate on the road with the distraction. I wish the visor would go down about 3-4 more inches, then I would use it all the time. I guess I will just have to get eye glasses that go dark when I go outside.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants are fantastic, the airflow is just ridiculous in them. Especially if I ride early in the morning and it's cold out. My legs get pretty cold pretty quick. Everything about these pants is great except one thing. They are long as heck.
For the knee pads to properly protect my knees, and be in the correct position, I have to have the waist line well above my belly button. I have yet to find anyone who can tailor these to make it so I do not have to wear them this way. That is my only gripe with them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had to exchange these once from a medium to a small because they were too long in the fingers. Got the small and they were just barely too long, so it is manageable. Been riding with this gloves a little over a week, the airflow is ridiculous. Especially and extremely noticeable when it's cold out.
Seem to be kind of a weird fit, in the fingers they are too long, but along my thumb after long periods of having them on, they leave this indentation on my hand that hurts somewhat. It seems to be going down a little bit as time progresses.
Overall, pretty nice glove. I am happy with them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Super Duty 4 Boots The fourth iteration of our industry defining Superduty boot pays direct homage to it's SD1 patriarch. The visually defining rubber nub interface and clean pattern lines keep the boot's appearance smooth while hidden ghillie laces reduce snag potential. The new bottom unit provides increased support, durability, and grip while layered foam increases comfort. The midfoot support strap, with upgraded aluminum buckle, provides increased foot retention. Finally, the reduced toebox height provides a greater range of fitment. The Superduty 4, the next step in motorcycle footwear. Durable leather upper Axialmetric steel shank Slip resistant rubber sole Footpeg interface arch Internal ankle protection Adjustable midfoot stabilizer strap Aluminum positive-lock buckle Low profile lacing system Shifter interface nubs

This seems to be a pretty entry level boot, I have been riding with them for a week or two now, and they seem to be pretty broken in after a month of just wearing them.
They are very wide in the toe area and tall. There is a lot of space between my toe and the top of the shoe, not a tight fit by any means. Sometimes the boot actually gets stuck in between my shift pedal and foot pedal.
They seem pretty durable, lace up pretty snug in the ankle, still pretty stiff though. The buckle seems to be only there to tuck the laces in. The buckle does not seem to actually tighten the boot at all.
This is my first set of motorcycle boots that I have ever bought, for the most part I am happy with them. Just wish they were a bit more snug in the toe area, but after trading in to exchange sizes, and not wanting to pay any shipping. I can manage until I buy a different pair in a few years.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Scorpion Recruit Leather Jacket The year is 1953 Marlon Brando hits the big screen as Johnny Strabler in the cult classic The Wild One. As leader of the Black Rebels Motorcycle Club (BRMC), Strabler and his gang disrupt a race competition in Carbonville by plowing through a roadblock, strolling across the track, and taunting officials of the Sage Valley Motorcycle Races. Accused of being an outlaw outfit, they are quickly thrown out of the competition by Sheriff Singer and told to Hit the road...get goin. The sale of black leather jackets and motorcycles reached new heights after the films release, and motorcycle became a timeless symbol of youth rebellion. Hence the Recruit Jacket. Features Constructed of durable 1.2-1.4mm top grain leather Removable EverHeat full-sleeve thermal liner Vented CE approved armor at elbows and shoulders Back protector compartment with P.E. foam pad included Adjustable zippered ventilation 2 front vents and 2 back vents Dual handwarmer / storage pockets Additional inner storage pocket NightViz reflective trim on back gets you noticed Lightweight perforated lining for maximum air flow Belt loop for pant attachment Dual Velcro waist adjustment straps

This is my first jacket for motorcycle riding ever, and my first leather jacket ever. I am not familiar with leather jackets at all, and am not sure if they are all this stiff and heavy when first getting them, I can only guess they are. I love the look of this jacket, and the feel. It's very snug, and currently I am trying to break it in wherever I am, riding in the car with it isn't very enjoyable.
I am incredibly satisfied with this jacket however, and my fiance thinks it looks great and so do I. The zippers are very high quality, and the ability to hide the zipper tabs is awesome.
I will say the arm length is just a tiny bit long, but it's not bothersome.
The fully removable pads are great, gives me a great feel of protection, I will be upgrading the back protector however as the stock one is just a piece of foam.
I would recommend this jacket to anyone, I love it and the only way I would get a different jacket is if I had the $800 to spend on the Dainese jackets. Looking forward to my first full season with this protecting my body.
Yes, I recommend this product.
