Stompgrip Tank Pad Yamaha YZF-R6 Stomp Grip Tank Pads make gripping your ride incredibly easy, and therefore requires less energy to hold on to the bike. This reduces fatigue and arm pump with more lower body grip and less upper body stress. On the track, this helps to keep the rider stable whether they are braking from top speed or heading into their favorite sweeping corner. Each pad is constructed of a non-abrasive material that features an aggressive volcano bump pattern. Does not cause unnecessary wear to your riding pants or leathers. Each Stomp Grip Tank Pad is custom designed and engineered to fit your specific bike model. Features Available in black and clear Paint and graphic remain visible through clear pad option Pre-molded rounded edges that resist peeling Super strong 3M adhesive back Made in USA Note Image for reference only. Stomp Grip Tank Pad may vary depending on your bike model.

After getting arm pump more and more frequently, I decided to get the Stomp Grip tank pads to help with keeping my body firmly positioned on the bike and also to help with posture. After installation, which wasn't too difficult (although I did take my time with it to minimize bubbling under the pad), I've noticed a great difference both on the street and at the track. Highly recommend!

Helmet looks great and provides a ton of air flow for those warmer day rides. Fits great for a middle of the road oval/round head, and noise level is low. Only quip is with the chin strap in that HJC includes a little red tag on there that must always be moved or cut off in order to button/lock the strap after looping through the D-Rings. Otherwise, its quite a snug fit trying to go over it. Highly recommend!

After riding for about a year squinting heavily in the sun and as a result getting a few headaches, I decided to go ahead and purchase the Transitions Face Shield- and wow what a difference! The "transition" occurs fairly quickly and it always occurs at the optimal amount of shading to allow for an enjoyable ride without having to squint and waste focus/energy. Highly recommend this product!

Product fits well right out of the box, though break in is definitely a must when planning to trackday. Overall, the features are great at the $280 price point- kevlar pullstring for inside the boot, YYK zipper inside the boot, Multi-Link system for the ankle/Achilles feels very strong and reliable when walking and riding, replaceable heel and toe slider should there be a mishap at the track or on the road. Boot flows a great deal of air, but not excessive- first ride with them was in 50*F temps on Long Island with a normal pair of socks and was very comfortable. Fits very true to size- I wear a 12.5 US in most sneakers and other shoes, ordered a 48EU/12.5US and no complaints. Highly recommend this product at this closeout price point for entry to intermediate level riders and trackday enthusiasts.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought this glove for summer use and could not be happier with the purchase. Originally used the sizing chart given by A*, however they ended up being a size small (Went from Large to XL). Gloves are very comfortable, provide good airflow, and offer great protection around the knuckles. Microvelcro works great, providing good closure with no expectation of the strap coming loose.

 Icon Hooligan 2 Threshold Mesh Jacket

Icon Hooligan 2 Threshold Mesh Jacket Some will tell you that you can never know your true limits until you exceed them. A simple mathematical equation that balances at the threshold. Until such point where desire exceeds skill and ambition outweighs ability. The sum of this equation is the negative integer we refer to as pain. No jacket will completely prevent the pain from an imbalanced equation, but the Hooligan2 can help put the balance back towards your favor. Features ICON relaxed fit Durable fighter mesh chassis for maximum venting Removable ICON CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable ICON dual-density foam back pad Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Stretch panels for increased mobility Lined collar for comfort Internal zippered pocket for secure storage Removable insulated wind resistant liner Upgradable to stryker CE back protector Please note, white jacket features silver logos not red as pictured.

I bought this jacket specifically because it was made for 3 seasons, with the removable liner. Liner snapped out with no problems, and went into use with ease. Liner has a pocket which is also replicated in the left breast of the unlined jacket, very nice. Air flow is great, initial back protection (foam) isn't too sturdy but as with many jackets upgrade to save the pain. Elbow protection seems to slip down a bit whent he jacket is hung up, but easily moves back up and rests comfortably without movement when riding. The rear length of the jacket is also great, as without a belt loop tie-in, jacket could ride up. At speed, haven't had this problem since its a bit longer. Can't wait to see how it holds up with the liner in cooler weather.

 Bell Vortex Attack Helmet
Bell Vortex Attack Helmet
Bell Vortex Attack Helmet The Attack Helmet sports another military inspired graphic in the Bell Vortex Helmet line. This graphic is available either in gray scale or red/white/gray and features raised graphics along the seam lines. Bold stripes along the back of this helmet serve a dual purpose as a design element and to boost visibility via their reflectivity. Bell Vortex Helmets provide a lot of value for your dollar because they are packed with features also seen in their big brother the Star. Check out the features listed below and you will see why these helmets are the complete package. Features Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut) Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner Padded Wind collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever Clear NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield. Dark tint and other shields available for purchase separately Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Approximate weight 1600g Comes with clear faceshield only Certification Snell M2010, DOT Our Opinion of the The Bell Vortex Helmet The Bell Vortex Helmet has grown to be one of the top selling and more ubiquitous 200 sport helmets in the RevZilla family. The light weight, Snell Rating and ability to use the Bell Photochromic shield allow the Bell Vortex Helmet to cover a lot of the bases the typical sport or track day rider is looking for in a reasonably priced helmet. Many times we see this type of functionality only available in helmets over the 300 mark. In the 3/4 or tuck position the Bell Vortex Helmet will provide a great solution in just about any spirited or sport riding scenario. If you find a graphic or color that suits your taste and you have an intermediate oval head shape, the Bell Vortex is a great option.

Ordered the black helmet and although, as noted at the bottom of the description, the helmet is grey/silver/white, the helmet does have a great simple look to it that goes well with a variety of color combinations in gear and bike. Noise level is a bit high at speeds, but that tradeoff is for great airflow. I may consider grabbing some earplugs just to be "safe", but overall great construction, look, comfort and cooling of this helmet make it a great buy at $180! Highly recommended.
