 Icon Compound Mesh Overpants
Icon Compound Mesh Overpants
Icon Compound Mesh Overpants The Compound Mesh Overpants blend the abrasion resistance of premium grade cowhide with the breathability of Fighter Mesh, resulting in the perfect balance of comfort and protection. Dual full-length side zippers make for an easy on/off procedure and the adjustable waist straps combined with a ratchet waist closure allow for a fine-tuned fit. Once the pant is on, you'll notice expansion panels in critical areas which aid in both overall comfort and keeping the removable/adjustable CE knee impact protectors in their proper position. If you're looking for serious warm weather protection for your bottom half, your search is over.

I was looking for a easy on/off pair of pants for sport riding and commuting. They work fairly well. The knee armor is horribly uncomfortable- I replaced mine with armor I had from another pair and its much better. These pants are very large, even for an overpant. I wear a 32 pant, and bought a 32, should have bought a 30. Even weaing them with jeans underneath all the adjusters are tightened all the way. I can however wear jeans and a polar fleece liner underneath, so it does help extend the season a bit. Decent airflow through the mesh, and leaving the fly and pockets open move a little more. With shorts underneath they are comfortable up to about 90 degrees or so, even stopped in traffic (it might be because mine are white). They leather seems to be decent quality, but there are some differences between the two legs, in that the pieces at the bottom of the leg are cut differently, and one leg was a little longer than the other. There is also more leather under the mesh on one side than the other, even after being cut to the same length (the mesh panels dont match from side to side) This is mostly cosmetic, but I expected more for the price. Cutting the legs to fit is a definate must. Stitching seems to be ok, but I was able to pull apart the pieces I cut off the bottom of the legs fairly easily. Hopefully this is only because they were little pieces, but once again I have to say I was somewhat underwhelmed with the overall quality. I would reccomend checking them out in person if you are seriously considering these pants, I probably would have bought something else or sent them back if I hadnt gotten them dirty when I first got them. (white is very hard to keep clean).

I have worn these gloves in the 50 to 70 degree range. They are pretty warm at these temps, but if you dont like cold they can get a little chilly after about half an hour at 50. The craftsmanship in these gloves is poor. There are obvious differences in the stitching and placement of the various leather pieces between the two gloves, the right in my pair is much better. That being said, they are on the low end of the price range, although I still feel for the price they could be better. Most of the problems are cosmetic, or make the glove a little uncomfortable at first. They do get better after they break in. If you are looking for a warm glove for mild weather with lots of protection on the cheap, this ones for you

Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Rear Tires Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces. Features Real Moto GP technology from the tire company that has won 15 consecutive GPWorld Championships 20 softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip Unprecedented lean angles 51.2 degrees in the dry on Michelin's test track Precise handling and feedback Lap times within 7 of Michelin Moto GP slicks when fitted on Colin Edward's Yamaha Moto GP bike at Malaysia's Sepang circuit in February 2006 Track Day tire that is equally at home on the road

I have about 4000 miles on these tires on an SV650s. Great dry traction, pretty good in the wet. The back is starting to square a little, but 4000 miles on a sticky sport tire thats not toast yet seems pretty good to me.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves - 2011 version With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

Bang for your buck- not too bad, but a little pricey. Just ask my wife. Style- Not too over the top racer, but carbon is always cool. Comfort- I followed the size chart, and I was at the largest med. smallest large size. I got large and had a lot of trouble just getting them on at first. They do break in rather quickly though and after a couple of rides they aren't bad. The cuffs rub at my wrists a little, but that might be my jacket (I'm used to gauntlets). Protection and durability- They look well constructed, but only time will tell. The tips of the fingers fray from the velcro on the cuffs, but not too bad so far. Airflow- YES!! Features- Adequate protection with lots of flow, carbon knuckles on a floating pad-- good to go.
