The product performs exactly as it's supposed to. Great look and a noticeable decrease in wind against the body and helmet when going 90+. :) I definitely recommend getting one. Thanks Revzilla!

I was looking for a boot that offered a good degree of protection and could be worn on and off the bike. All of my riding is on the street and and is mostly commuting to and from work. I believe the TCX X-Move boots fits a sweet spot. They are relatively inexpensive compared to other similar boots from Dainese and they offer better protection than plain riding shoes. I previously owned a pair of Alpinestars Blacktop riding shoes which were nothing more than glorified high tops. The TCX X-Move boots are a little stiff at first but quickly break-in and become very comfortable. Because of the stiffness, I had to adjust to the feel of the controls on the bike. I typically wear a size 8 and the size 41 fit me perfectly. I do not have wide feet and they feel roomy in the toe box. I am happy with my purchase, thanks Revzilla!

I am very happy with my Arai purchase. This my first personal helmet so I can't really comment on comparisons to other brands except for the Shoei Quest that I wore during my motorcycle training. The Shoei may have been mislabeled a medium because it fit way too tight.
I was fortunate to get my Arai at closeout pricing which made it well worth the pricing, IMHO. My head size is between the small and medium according to the sizing chart. I originally made the mistake of ordering the medium first. It fit just a tad too large and I didn't feel comfortable keeping it. Revzilla has a terrific exchange policy so I was able to return it for a small. I was a little apprehensive at first, fearing the small would be too small. Once I received the small, all my apprehensions were put to rest. It fits snug and is not too tight. After wearing it for more than a week it is even more comfortable.
My only complaints about the helmet is that the shield will occasionally fog up and I'll need to crack it open to let it clear up when at a stop.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These look great with a pair of jeans and are comfortable enough to wear like a regular pair of shoes. Air flow is also excellent while riding. These don't provide the ultimate protection that race boot's can but they definitely provide better protection than a regular pair of street shoes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The G Level 2 fit perfectly in my Dainese size 52 jacket. It is comfortable and I don't even notice it there when riding. I haven't compared the comfort without the liner in my jacket yet but I don't believe it will be an issue. The only thing I can really think of to say negatively about it is that it adds some weight to the jacket. Pricing is a little high but what's the price your willing to pay to help protect your spine from possible injury? Ride safe!
Yes, I recommend this product.
