Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

These gloves have great features and great protection. The sizing is definitely Euro as I wear a Large in most gloves, but an XL in these. In fact, the gloves still felt a bit small for the first couple hundred miles. They are now fully broken-in and feel great. The comfort and airflow is what we come to expect from Alpinestars...excellence. And for the money they can't be beat.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shark Speed-R Redding Replica Helmet SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders. Double blade air spoiler positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet. Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed. Features Latest generation composite long fibre construction Integrated, drop down sun visor Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with naked road bikes Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses ECE 2205 and DOT approved Two shell sizes

This is an excellent helmet...really at any price. Because it's not a "race" helmet, the styling queues are subtle, but nice. The drop down sun visor has the perfect tint even in direct sunlight and has great coverage area. The clear visor is incredibly solid. The thickness Shark chose gives you an extra sense of security and it doesn't feel "floppy" when opening and closing. And when you have both the clear visor and sun visor down it doesn't feel like you're looking through two different pieces.
This is one of the quietest helmets I've worn (and I've used several from Shark, Arai, Shoei and HJC). Of course, one of the reasons it's so quiet is because there aren't many vents...which is the only semi-negative thing I can say about this helmet. But when stopped at a light you can always flip the clear visor up and let in a little more air and still keep the sun visor down to keep the sun out of your eyes. (Note, I don't suggest riding like this because the airflow hits you strange and makes a crazy whistling noise)
Other online and video reviews of this helmet are spot on. The fit/shape is more of a Round to Round/Oval and that's typical for Shark. The durability...well...I actually hope to never have to truly test it...but you can see and feel the quality.
Yes, I recommend this product.
