Of all my gear, this is my favorite piece. They ooze Italian quality. I hug these things like a teddy bear when I go to sleep at night I love them so much.
I had a pair of the Alpinestars MX-2 Air Carbon gloves. They fit VERY well as if they were already broken in but they had this 3D mesh on the tops of the fingers that velcro just chewed up and frayed. Not to mention they reminded me too much of motocross gloves they were really lightweight, I didn't feel safe in them.
Next I had a pair of Icon Pursuit gloves and they were not as sleek as pictured they actually looked like you had this poofy pillow covering your nuckles.
Literally worth every penny in how these gloves are just better than anything I've put on before. Night and day difference. I feel safe now. They hold up well in a crash too btw so I tested that aspect already. No rips no tears. Just grinded the knuckles down a tad and scratched my thumb up a little. Beautiful gloves, I adore them.

When I was first looking at helmets my options were:
HJC CL-16 117$
Icon Alliance 170$
Bell Vortex 180$
I had an agenda: Protect my noggin, look good and not break the bank. The HJC had a removable sticker and for 20$ more I could solidly murder the whole thing thing out, except it was a little too round, made me look like a lollipop and the single vent reminded me of a cyclops. NEXT, the Icon Alliance. Great liner was the first thing that jumped out at me, solid helmet, good looking, except nothing made me "have to have it" for the extra 70$ and lastly Bell Vortex (room mates current brain bucket) SO MUCH R&D! Just so many features, bells (haha pun) and whistles that you see on 300$+ helmets. Looks sharp, excellent quality, DOT & SNELL, yada yada. My only gripe is the vents are a little too elaborate for my taste and the Bell stickers are under the clear coat. No bueno for me and a smoked out face shield is another 45$ so that puts you at 225$ which leaves me to the SparX....
Simple, yet edgy, DOT, ECE 22-05 and a grand total of 130$ shipped for all black with a black face shield, honestly nothing can beat it. Fit true to my hat size I wear a 7 3/8 comfortably and a large fit me just right, it's not large and bulky making me feel like sputnik, the chin vent is very low profile. I love it. My only gripe was the "x" logo is under the clear coat, GRRRR! For sale sign permanent marker quickly fixed that. Looks mean, fits good, lighter than the HJC helmet all for 130$ shipped. Only other helmet I'd consider (and I have no reason too because I ride canyons) is the Bell Vortex if you plan on tracking your bike that requires DOT and SNELL rated helmet.
Conclusion: BUY IT!!! :)
