Icon 1000 Turnbuckle Gloves Sometimes the best way forward is back. Craftsmanship and technologies, once abandoned, can be reexamined and repurposed. The Icon One Thousand Turnbuckle uses such refound tech to its advantage. Custom knit forchettes, circa-OG MX gloves, provide uncompromised fit feel. When paired with a French cowhide chassis and fingertips, the Turnbuckle provides a handheld barricade against asphalt intrusion. D3O armor integrated into the main knuckle furthers the riding legitimacy of the Turnbuckle platform. Whats old is new again. Features D3O Armor in knuckles Abrasion resistant premium grade French cowhide chassis Knit nylon finger gussets Perforated panels for increased ventilation Secure wrist closure keeps glove in place Pre-curved palm and finger design

I've used these gloves on two rides in sunny weather above 50 degrees and I haven't had any issues. They have good airflow and the fit is comfortable on the grips (very soft palm). The leather construction seems good and only time will tell how long they will last. I have small hands and ordered the size SM and they fit just right. I had ordered 2 other gloves, River Road Twin Iron Gloves and Icon Anthem Gloves and returned them before deciding on the Icon 1000 Turnbuckle Gloves because the fit was just not right on the other gloves. I also purchased the Held Rodney Gloves but they were on back order and I needed some summer weight gloves quickly. I am very happy with the purchase of these glove and recommend them

I purchased this leather 11/13/2012 and have used it 3 times since in temps down to 32deg and had no issues with being cold. This leather is "heavy duty" and is "stiff" because it is new but after it breaks in it should be excellent. Don't let the $269.95 price fool you, this leather is top notch.

The SMH-10 Helmet Clamp kit gives you the option of using an attachable boom mic or wired mic, the kit comes with both. This kit is a must for the full face hemet user to install a wired mic instead of a boom when you have no room

I've been using the Sena SMH-10 now for 2 weeks and so far it is working flawlessly. Paired easily with my iPhone 3GS for media and phone functionality. Install was a breeze in my SCORPION EXO 900 helmet. Phone calls sound great but music definitely lacks great sound (tinny with no bass) BUT the speakers are not Hi Fidelity so don't expect it. Just the fact that you can listen to music streaming from your phone via Bluetooth is a PLUS without having to carry extra stuff. Maybe Sena will come up with better speakers in the future. Oh, almost forgot, purchase the SENA SMH-10 Helmet Clamp Kit. You will need it for some helmet installations. I did for the Scorpion EXO 900 because the clamp system that comes with the unit does not work for this helmet because of the helmet lip where the cheek pad is installed. The SMH-10 Kit allows you stick the mount to the helmet and it allows you the choice of an an attachable boom microphone or wired microphone. For Full Face Helmets users this kit is a must have for wired microphone installation instead of the boom.
So, to sum it up;
PROs:
Easy to install
Pairs easily
Phone calls sound great
Great battery life
Easy to adjust with gloves on
Great features for the price
CONs:
Not the best sound for music
****************************************************************************
(TIP:The speaker cutouts in the Scorpion EXO 900 are a bit snug. Use your finger to widen them a little at a time. Check frequently until the speaker fits flush and snug, install the velcro adhesive in the hole and you'll be good to go. No cutting of the ear hole is required if you follow this method).

This is an excellent boot. Due to the boot design it is very comfortable and flexible. Feels great right out of the box with no break-in. Although only the upper is Gore-Tex, they do breathe well. I don't know how waterproof they will be but I believe they will do fine keeping your feet dry if you're a daily commuter if you happen to get stuck in a rain storm. The boot is very well made and it appears it will wear well over time. My other boot is the Icon Super Duty 4 (Wheat color) which is an excellent boot for the money BUT I prefer this boot for my longer rides. Order the next size down if you have medium width feet because the boot does run 1 size larger. I had to return my first pair (size7) for a (size6). Having a men size 6 is definitely unusual but I guess this is because they do run larger.
Yes, I recommend this product.
