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 Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New 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 Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators 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 All new 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.
