I own a pair of Icon Twenty-niner which are great, but these are an upgraded version of those, the leather on the palm offers a great protection and feel. These flow a ton of air making them great summer gloves. I got the white ones to go with my Icon Patrol Raiden jacket and the look epic. Great buy
Yes, I recommend this product.

The exhaust is just epic, you feel the change in torque and the extra hp in the mid-high rpms and you get that deep signature sound that akrapovic is known for. I must say that with both db-killers off, the sound ramps up in the mids and it can be very uncomfortable for a passenger and you set off many alarms in parking structures and just driving around. One silencer on and one off has been my set up for regular use, both on for trips with passenger and both off when riding solo or whenever you feel like it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Its almost as good as the original the only flaw is that the speakers look a little poor when compared to the OEM but get the job done.

I got the RTS Gold shield and although it takes a little longer to swap out than my Shoei Qwest I usually take care of the lens change during my pre-ride check. The lens is not as dark as I thought but the outside mirrored finish takes care of most of the sunlight and it just looks awesome.

In order to use them as over pants, get one size larger. They fit true to size and barely any room to spare.

The helmet is just amazing, the fit is great and when the chin curtain is installed it gets very quiet. The shield can get a bit foggy if the switch is on the normal or locked position. Defogs almost instantly when the switch is set to defog and has very decent airflow.

The jacket is amazing, since it is intended for cold weather, the airflow is not the best and it was a given since i saw it. I got it in red and looks amazing with the helmet i got (Shoei Qwest Passage). The pads feel sturdy and safe and the reflection from it is above average.

The bag is very good, it was easy to install, but it barely fits a helmet (Shoei Qwest or Bell Vortex) which is its main use i would say.
