The Hypersport Prime chassis is constructed of multiple materials, each chosen for their unique performance properties.

Extensive Unit-Fused construction on the back fuses TPU plating onto a 3D airmesh panel, allowing for reinforced ventilation. A full D3O package, elbows fitted with three-position pockets that allow for proper impact protector placement. The Hypersport Prime also features Icons new SportCuff, designed for ease of use, reduced cuff bulk, and enhanced wrist articulation. Features Icon attack fit 1.2-1.4mm TrackSpec perforated leather chassis D3O impact protectors in the shoulders, elbows, and back Insulated, removable SatinCore vest liner Unit-Fused construction Integrated flex zones TechMesh panels TPU Injected shoulder, back, and elbow plates Pre-curved arms YKK zippers Drop tail Interior zipper Slash and cargo pockets 3/4 waist zipper connects to Hypersport Pant Streamlined SportCuff Neoprene collar Thumb loops

I love Icon jackets. Fit is usually right on for me, and they offer great protection with standard D3O armor. This is the fourth one I own, and by far the best looking. I do have to say that the fit on this Hypersport Prime is a bit tighter than other Attack Fit jackets I have in the same size (LG), particularly the Overlord Sportbike SB1 (my next favorite jacket), although not so tight that it's uncomfortable. Just keep that in mind if you plan to upgrade to a Level-2 back protector -- it wouldn't fit for me. Overall, great looking jacket that offers a lot of protection and still flows a ton of air. Highly recommend.

Wow, one day shipping! Ordered on Wednesday, delivered on Thursday -- amazing! Anyway, to the gloves. Fit is spot on -- I wear a LG in most gloves (XL in A*stars), and the LG in this glove fits perfectly. Slightly tight on first use, but should break in nicely. Lots of protection for knuckles, scaphoid, fingers. Nice soft leather. Basically all the features of the ICON Hypersport Pro short gloves that I recently bought, but much better fit and $55 cheaper. Highly recommend!

Moto-Skiveez Adventure Skiveez Riding Shorts Developed for the rider with feet positioned directly below seat contact. Optimized to reduce chafing with repeated rising to stand on the pegs. This design is engineered for both modern dual sport bikes as well as dirt bikes. The Moto-Skiveez pad for the adventure riding style is the most complex of all Moto-Skiveez designs. It is comprised of a base malinga cloth, three different types of foam, and a silver ion infused covering. This pad is engineered to provide comfort and functionality for a multitude of riding styles. This pad is designed for the rider to move from seating to standing and shift from forward to rearward on the seat. The padding in the seating area of this design has multiple densities formed with both concave and convex elliptical curves. This feature provides added comfort as the rider moves forward and back. One of its primary functions is to provide comfort for long hours adventure-touring, testing the abilities of the modern dual sport motorcycle to corner at high lean angles as well as ride off road. Additionally this design features two padded extensions positioned on the inner thigh of each leg. These extensions have vertical padded ribs with ventilation openings. This is to counteract friction and chafing from repeated standing and seating experienced by aggressive off road riding. Features Surface fabric infused with silver ions for permanent antimicrobial, antibacterial treatment 4mm square perforated foam throughout 6mm memory foam main body 3mm perforated memory foam in legs Both convex and concave corrugations with vertical ribs impede irritation

The only other review on this product gave it glowing praise. Sorry, I can't agree. Just got back from my first fairly lengthy ride wearing these, and my poor butt was sore and numb after just two hours. The second two hours were agony. I actually felt like my butt was more sore wearing them than without -- I've done three-four hour rides on this bike in the past and had some soreness / numbness, but nothing like this. To me, this was $60 down the drain. I do not recommend.

Icon Anthem Mesh Jacket The Anthem Mesh Jacket is a call to leave the car behind. A challenge to refute the air-conditioned cage and instead embrace everything enclosed transportation will never know. Breathable and abrasion-resistant Fighter Mesh construction, relaxed fit, and CE-approved elbow and shoulder Field Armor with a dual-density foam back pad are combined for both mobility and protective qualities. Get out on the road, but dont forget to suit up with the ICON Anthem Mesh Jacket. Features ICON RELAXED FIT DURABLE FIGHTER MESH CHASSIS FOR MAXIMUM VENTING REMOVABLE ICON CE FIELD ARMOR ELBOW SHOULDER IMPACT PROTECTORS DUAL-DENSITY FOAM BACK PAD HEAVYWEIGHT BALLISTIC IMPACT PANELS STRETCH PANELS FOR INCREASED MOBILITY INTERNAL ZIPPERED POCKET FOR SECURE STORAGE REMOVABLE INSULATED WIND-RESISTANT LINER UPGRADABLE TO STRYKER CE BACK PROTECTOR

I live in Western Washington and winter in Arizona, so I'm riding year-round. This is the perfect jacket for my type of riding -- with the liner in it's good down into the 50's, with it out I'm good into the 90's. It does run big. I'm 5'10" and about 195, and the Medium fits me with plenty of room for a sweatshirt under the liner if need be. It flows a ton of air in hot weather, is very comfortable to wear and looks good. It's a little more expensive than some "mesh" jackets, but with the full liner including sleeves, it's worth it. I highly recommend this jacket.

Let me be clear -- I am reviewing the magnetic version of the Cortech Super 2.0 18l bag. I have no reservations about recommending this bag. Expanded to 18l it holds a ton of stuff, and it grabs the tank securely every time, with no movement at any speed. If you aren't hauling a lot of stuff around, leave it zipped to the 12l size to save some space. The map window is fairly useless, as the entry opening is far too small to get a decent sized map in, but other than that, it performs great.
The same cannot be said for the strap version, which I also have (da** BMW plastic tank covers#. No matter how tight you pull the straps, the bag flops around even with a light load, but the same can be said about every other strap bag I've tried #a bunch). If you have a metal tank and don't need a map window, grab this bag. Otherwise, pass.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Rear Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction Michelins newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor High performance and environmentally sound 100 non-aromatic-oil rubber compound Note Sizes denoted by B are designed specifically for loaded sport touring bikes, or for riding two-up. More info about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tires available in review by Gear Geek CK.

I have had Road 3's on my Yamaha FZ6 for almost a year, so it was a no-brainer when my BMW R1100S needed a rear tire. These tires are amazing for any bike, but particularly sport-tourers. I have gotten over 7,000 miles from the set on my Yammie with virtually no sign of wear, and performance is great. Cornering grip isn't what you'd get from sticky sport-bike or track tires, but it is way more than adequate in both dry and wet conditions for touring. Highly recommended.

The relaxed fit, Fighter Mesh chassis, Field Armor impact protectors, and zip-off sleeves combine to create a willing partner for your headstrong drive into the paint. The streets play rough the Hooligan Street Jersey plays rougher.

As far as summer jackets go, you can't get any simpler than this -- as the name implies, it's more a jersey than a jacket, although it does have hand-warmer (??) pockets on the outside and a small zip-up cell phone pocket on the inside. All mesh design means it flows a ton of air. I'm not too sure about the zip-off sleeves -- you wouldn't want to ride with the sleeves off, and if it's warm enough out that you'd take them off to walk around, you wouldn't wear the jacket at all, so it's more of a gimmick than any kind of practical feature, in my opinion. The fit is very generous, particularly in the body. I normally wear a size LG in moto jackets, and even the MED in this Icon Hooligan Street Jersey is big on me (probably could have gone to a SM, but since the idea is to flow air, the MED is perfect). The current price is a little steep, but that's for the Icon name. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a hot weather sport bike jacket.

I've had this screen on my 2005 Yamaha FZ-6 for almost a year now, and I love it. Much better wind protection at speed than the stock screen, and looks better, in my opinion. I get comments on it on almost every group ride.

I've got two Bell helmets (Vortex Attack and RS-1 RSD Flash) that obviously came with clear visors, and I purchased a dark smoke face shield when I first bought the Vortex, so didn't really see the need to spend big bucks on another one. Boy, big mistake. After several times getting caught out after dark with the dark face shield (and finally dropping my new RS-1 right square on the shield), I broke down and got a Bell Transitions shield. Wow! That's all I can say. This is an amazing face shield -- very fast transition from dark to light and back, and fits both helmets (one of the great things about Bell helmets is the universal shields). Can't recommend it enough. If you own a Bell helmet, you need one of these.

What can you say -- you need a unique Monokey or Monorack plate, depending on the type of case you have, and this is it! Very well made, just like the rack that goes with it -- sturdy, heavy-duty, should last many years. Only gripe is how expensive these systems are, after you spend $200-300 for the case itself.
