Pirelli Angel GT Rear Tires Pirelli dbuted the new Angel GT Tires on Basque soil in Bilbao, Spain accompanying the newest edition of the Multistrada 1200 S Granturismo. The new Angel GT Sport Touring tire will be standard equipment on the latest version of the Borgo Panigale model. The Angel GT boasts 15 percent more mileage than the Pirelli Angel ST without sacrificing performance. Pirelli has labeled this as Performance Mileage. The primary design was to provide regular wear and excellent water drainage guaranteed by both the front tires and by the new groove design on the rear. Pirelli is using a dual blend compound that allows for high mileage in the center with a higher percentage of silica on the sides offering maximum performance, even in wet conditions. In the end, the Pirelli Angel GT is a great option for long distance riders with a fully loaded bike, or for those who are looking to optimize performance on their short daily getaways. From sport bikes to touring and everything in between the Angel GT will not disappoint. Features (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph Ideal for sport riders looking for increased mileage without sacrificing grip and traction Extended Mileage Sport (EMS) tires provide best-in-class for mileage and grip Rear tires feature new Bi-compound formula that improves cornering traction A Spec rear tires feature a reinforced, 2-ply carcass Improved wet grip Tubeless

Great tire so far. Actually enjoys being leaned over. Highly stable even to the edge. Tire isn't rubbing off like an eraser either, so I hope it will last at least as long as the PR2s I had before. Even if they don't, the confidence boost I got from these more than make up for it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Tires have excellent dry grip. They actually feel more stable when leaned over even to the edges. Have about 800 mi. on the tire with a 50/50 mix of slab and twisties, and there are no noticeable signs of wear. Will give another update at 3000 mi. I have not ridden these in the wet yet, and although I hear they are great, I'm not planning it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this on sale in black. I am 5'10" 185lbs. Got the large and fits well. Liners work well in stopping wind and insulating. Feels safe as well, like you dive off at 30mph and walk away.
This is my first winter jacket. I used to layer up in three light jackets and still be cold. I should have bought this long ago. I am riding safer and more comfortable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Dainese Air Frame offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for Dainese Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

Put it like this. I have gone down twice in this jacket. Once in a low side skid in a bend, and once on a blow out. Totally unscathed and unbruised. Plus, I looked good and was comfortable while I was wearing it too. I don't think I'll ever by another jacket brand again.

Well, I have had three blow outs in the past 6months. What are the odds? Prior to this, I hadn't had a flat in over 10years. Needless to say, after the third flat, I bought a tire plug kit. My buddies even bought one for me too. With this one, at least you can inflate the tire enough so that you can limp home.

This boot is comparable to $300 or $400 boots I have evaluated on this site. The protection is superp and the comfort is spot on. I rode with them all day, and didn't even notice them. If you are intested in protection, comfort, and good looks, then this is the boot for you.

Picked up these gloves because I really wanted some that were quality as well as protective. Dainese is a brand I know that I can trust after crash testing. The only drawback is the price, however it is worth it. These gloves look good, are quailty, and very protective.
I ordered the medium according to the size chart, and they felt tight as h*ll. It even left marks on my hands. They did stretch and are now comfortable after a few rides. So if you order and they feel tight, give the leather time to relax. Gloves should feel like gloves, and not like bags on your hands.

Previous jacket was a Dainese, the cheapest type at that. So when I lowslid in it on a road about 35 or 40mph it performed more than admirably. My forearms were protected and shoulders were protected. I was sore everywhere, except my upper body. The mesh part of the jacket was ripped but held up.
Long story short, tried to get another Dainese leather jacket, but they are expensive. Went with this instead and wish I hadn't. It looks cool, but isn't too comfortable.
Worst part of the jacket is the armor. It doesn't even cover your entire forearm. I even tried swapping the armor in the Dainese into this jacket but it didn't fit.
Oh, and if your are sweaty or your arms are damp, you won't be able to get the jacket on or off with ease because of the water proof layer.
In short, it will get you buy if you need some type of protection, but I know my arm would be messed up bad if I had crashed in this thing. Saving up for a Dainese Alien.
