SIDI Traffic Air Boots A mid height boot Perforated Lorica outer construction Perforated Teflon treated nylon lining Full length inner gaiter Composite inner sole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Zipper and Velcro closure system Non-slip lug sole Lorica toe shift pad Double stitched in all high stress areas
Fit is good and boot is comfortable with a cushion sole sock. Initally rather stiff but softens and forms to the foot after a few wearings. Air flow is superior. Toe box is a bit high which makes shifts a bit clumsey. This may improve as the materials relax. Excellent hot weather potential.

Protection & Durability
Great improvement over original N43. Better fit. More room in chin bar. Better fit over the ears. Better ventilation even with the face shield closed. Intermediate positions on the face shield work very well. I ride a fully faired R1200RT and the helmet works very well behind the windshield. It also works well on my naked R100/7. The dark inner shield is a good shade and covers just enough of the eyes. The balance of the helmet is the key to liking this helmet. Even with the chin bar in place the weight is balanced and there is no tendancy to pull the head down and forward. The neck area does not tire out after several hours of riding. The noise level is average. I wear ear plugs with this helmet. The interior is comfortable and nicely made. Overall quality is excellent. Fit and finish is excellent. Even in 100 degree heat the ventilation is very good. . I find I am using this more than my other more expensive helmets.
PIAA 1100 LED Light Kit The PIAA 1100LED takes its cues from its famous predecessor the 1100X. The 1100LED is designed to give supreme LED performance and still fit into the same mounting locations and on the same brackets as the 1100X. The 1100LED features computer controlled Pulse Width Modulation (PMW) providing thermal protection allowing its high performance LEDs to perform to their maximum potential. Conspicuity and night time visibility is enhanced by a color temperature of 6300K. From the machined die-cast aluminum housing to the computer designed cooling fins and 4mm high-impact lens, only the highest quality workmanship and materials go into the 1100LED. Light output of the 1100LED is similar to the 1100X giving off a symmetrical pattern so a rider wont lose visibility when leaning into a turn. Bulb Type Three 4W LEDs, 6300K Description CNC machined die-cast aluminum housing and computer designed cooling fins Kit Includes Two lamps, pre-wired harness with fuse and switch
