These glove look nice and would function very well if it weren't for a few flaws. First, these gloves run small in fit. I normally wear a medium in almost every glove I ever bought or tried on, so that is why I ordered a medium in this pair. Gloves were very snug in fit and after a couple of weeks of wear, they are still snug, so if you order any, get the next larger size. The other flaw is in the first finger material. they should've wrapped the leather around the fingertip, because the open weave netting gets caught in the velcro when you're fastening the opposite glove and it pulls "snags" in that spot. So now the gloves have the backside looking like they have been dragged on concrete. At this rate, these gloves won't make it through one season. Too bad, because these gloves do provide good airflow and good grip. The little patches of silicone laced leather on the palm and fingers provide excellent grip even when wet.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety. An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoeis stainless steel 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation. From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Ventilation and Aerodynamics Vortex generator vents pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar Interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

This helmet was truly designed for the Touring crowd. I've never had a helmet that flows so much air you can actually feel it instantly on your head and forehead. A little noisier than I was expecting from all the hype, but I will take the airflow over the noise if it means I won't burn up to keep it on! Helmet is a little pricey, but I know Shoei's have always been on the upper end of the segment. Great helmet!
Yes, I recommend this product.
