It eliminates the need change between tinted and clear shields when riding in the light of day, the darkness of night and anything in between. Features Shield tint automatically adjusts to lighting conditions Bell NutraFog II anti-fog coating reduces fogging Anti-scratch and UV-protected coatings block 99 percent of UV rays Compatible only with Bell ClickRelease shield system (featured on Star, RS-1 and Vortex full-face helmets)
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.

For what looks to be a fairly simple rack, this thing is a b**** to install. It took two of us 2 hours to put this thing on my 2005 Yamaha FZ6 -- mainly because nothing wanted to align. We had to shove and push body parts and rack parts just to get the bolts to line up, and then the bolts didn't want to go in. When it's finally installed, this is a great rack -- sturdy, well made, looks like it will last for many years. Just plan on plenty of install time and keep your temper!
RevZilla Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared and devlish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. It's also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since day one of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size, if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.
Alpinestars M20 Monster Energy Air Gloves The Alpinestars M20 Glove delivers an extremely high level of comfort thanks to a ventilated, lightweight chassis that is stylishly detailed with Alpinestars and Monster Energy branding. The ergonomic profile of the glove integrates EVA foam knuckle protection and reinforced landing zones for street-wise safety. Features Goat skin leather and mesh upper construction Suede micro-fiber palm with synthetic suede reinforcements EVA foam knuckle protection High absorption EVA foam padding on landing zone Split gusset on fingers for improved flexibility TPR reinforcement details on top of the hand and fingers for additional protection Wrist flap closure with non-aggressive micro-velcro fastener
I've been looking for a good warm weather glove for months, and after several duds, gave the Alpinestars M20 Air a try. Great choice! First, though, these things run way small -- I usually wear a size MED, so I ordered a LG, and they fit much tighter than any MED I've ever tried. After a week of wear, they feel like they're stretching out a bit, so I think they'll be fine, but make sure you order at least one size up. Feature-wise, there is no hard armor, but plenty of padding across the fingers, and an extra layer of leather on the heel of the palm, so I'm guessing protection should be pretty good for every-day street riding. Air flow is amazing -- it feels like the entire glove is mesh. Absolutely perfect for warm weather rides. This is a shorty glove, so on-and-off is easy. As far as looks, these gloves are killer, and the green Monster logo perfectly matches the color of my two hi-viz yellow jackets. Overall, I'd have to say this is a pretty good glove for the money at less than $60.
The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported
For the most part, I like these gloves. They are light, air-flow is excellent, protection is probably fairly good and they look great. The problem is, as another reviewer pointed out, the seams inside the fingers. I have relatively short, stubby fingers, but even my fingers rub on the seams on the inside of the fingertips. VERY annoying, and enough that I gave the gloves to my grandson, who has smaller hands. If you have long fingers, don't buy these gloves.
TCX X-Square Boots This boot wears like a shoe Great malleolus protection, light weight, and Italian styling make this a great choice for the casual rider, whether you're riding a Vespa or Ducati Monster. Upper composed of suede leather and Air Tech material Malleolous protection, back counter reinforcement and shift pad Double closure system with laces and Velcro for a better fit Anatomic and replaceable footbed Wear-resistant all uses sole
First off, I also own a pair of TCX X-Action Waterproof boots, so I'm familiar with the fit and finish of TCX products. As usual, the X-Square boots run about a half-size large, so I purchased a size 10 for my size 10.5 feet, and the fit is perfect. These are shorty boots, so the shin protection is non-existent, but there is good armor on both sides of the ankle, the heel and the toe box. Air flow is great -- these are perfect boots for warm weather, but they aren't water-proof, so I wouldn't recommend them for late fall / winter / early spring wear unless you live in the sunny South. They are plenty flexible, making for easy walking, and they are super light for the amount of protection they offer. These are the lightest motorcycle boots I have ever worn, and probably the most comfortable as well. For the money, I don't think you could find a better boot, at least in a shorty. Highly recommended!
Joe Rocket Velocity Mesh Jacket True to the Velocity series, ultra-affordable doesnt mean you have to sacrifice protection, versatility, style, or summer comfort. Features FreeAir mesh shell Quick release, removable waterproof liner Contoured armor at the shoulders and elbows Removable Dual Density spine pad with pocket for optional C.E. spine armor High density rib padding 6-point SureFit custom adjustment system 2 outside pockets, 1 inside pocket Extended back Belt loops for pant attachment Reflective stripe
I have a Sliders All-Season 2 jacket in bright yellow that I have been using as a warm weather jacket (Firstgear Kilimanjaro for cold weather riding), but the rare 90 degree weather we had recently in Seattle showed me that as great a jacket as it is, and I do love it, it's way too bulky and heavy for warm weather wear. After reading the reviews, I decided to give the Joe Rocket Velocity Mesh a try. Wow! This jacket is amazing. For less than $120 you get elbow, shoulder and back armor, great style, terrific air flow and it weighs about a third of what the All-Season 2 does. This jacket is perfect for sport bikers or warm weather adventure riders, and it comes with a water-proof liner for when you get caught out (don't try wearing it in hot weather, though -- you'll sweat up a storm in no time). I highly recommend this jacket.
TCX X-Action Boots Based on their extremely popular 2009 Synergy boot, the X-Action has been revamped for 2011. Fully waterproof, this boot is made of top grain leather with microfiber and polyurethane panels strategically placed in high wear areas for longevity and durability. UPPER leather and micro fibre, front and rear padded area for a better comfort, rear reflexing insert LINING waterproof PROTECTION new malleolus protection, shin plate, polyurethane shift pad integrated in the sole FOOT BED anatomic and replaceable SOLE new touring sole, bi-injected with specific grip area and superior stability
As a lower-priced water-proof boot, this one is pretty good, particularly if you have wide feet. I normally wear a 10.5 wide in shoes and an 11 in boots, but a 10W fits very well with room for heavy socks in the winter if need be. My biggest concern is the same one laid out by an earlier reviewer, which is stiffness and lack of feel. I don't know if the toe-cap is bigger than other moto boots I have had or what, but I have to make a conscious effort to push my toe down after a shift, releasing the lever for the next shift, which I've never had to do before. Walking in the TCX X-Action is fairly comfortable for short distances, but they really are too stiff for extended walking. Protection should be excellent, as there are stiff pads on the toe, both sides of the ankle, heel and shin. The zippers are another issue -- they feel like they're either not going to zip, or they will break. Not a comfortable feeling when you're putting on a brand new boot. Hopefully, some of the stiffness in the boot and the zippers will work out over time.

Whether its off road trail blazing, freestyle back flipping, or a continental adventure ride, Patrol gear is designed for versatility and performance. Features 900D Poly - 900D Poly is dye sublimated - a printing process that gives the best-quality, most durable print available Adjustable belt - Single adjustable belt for maximum fit and comfort Sure lock fly closure - Dual snap waist closure for a secure fit Stretch rib - Stretch Rib is strategically used where pant flexibility is most important Mesh panels - Integrated mesh panels in key areas to dissipate heat Integrated TPR - Fully integrated TPR badges are massively vented via intake ports on the protective TPR badging Flex knee - Pre-shaped, ultra stretch knee/thigh construction for knee brace comfort Leather heat shield - Leather panels at the inside knees help protect from hot exhaust systems Leg cuff design - Low profile stretch cuffs with removable elastic band
I've worn these for about 75 miles today and can say the following: great fit (most moto pants are too long for the waist size), very comfortable, look great, pretty good ventilation for a durable fairly heavy pant, seem to offer good protection with extra padding in the right places. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a good-looking street pant or a durable off-road pant.
