First of all, these boots are beautiful. I was torn between the TRQ out and the A* SMX plus. Between the two I don't find any competition. The TRQs look better, feel just as comfortable, have just as much protection, more user friendly, and $50 less.
The Axial system looks cool and is very comfortable. You get ample amount of up/down movement in the ankle, but not enough to hyper-extend anything. Pronation is very well controlled also. You simply can't beat the ease of the rear entry zipper entry either. That was my first attraction to these boots was the way you could get in and out easy. The SMX Plus has the side zipper which takes a lot of stress each time you put on/take off.
Dainese styling speaks for itself. These boots are beautiful. The injected plastic is rigid and styled well, the logos all over the boot are tastefully done, and it's just comfortable to wear. The toebox is slightly on the narrow side. I wear a size 10 1/2 wide to 11 in US and I found the 44 to fit very well. I wear a 45 in the SMX Plus for comparison. The guys at Revzilla were extremely helpful as always and my boots got here quick, in perfect shape, and the size I needed. You can't go wrong with these boots!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Check the sizing

The 4 stroke is a great glove from Dainese. I wanted to get some premium technology and protection, but in a short cuff for my more casual Icon Motorhead jacket. It's easier to have gloves go underneath the sleeves. The 4 strokes have protection very similar to the Full Metal Pros, but in a much more compact package.
My only issue was sizing. I have fairly large hands but average to shortish fingers. The Large was a bit loose in the palm but way too much room in the fingers. Sized down to a Medium and the fit is much better. They are really tough for me to get on, but the fit is perfect once I do. I'm hoping they break in/stretch out a bit more in the future.
Dainese styling is second to none. Awesome accents, stretch panels, knuckle protection, and leather feel. If you want some protective shorty gloves that look good and are gonna protect your mits, I would go for these. Sure there are other shorties that flow more air or are a bunch cheaper, but the Dainese makes up for it in protection and style. Just be careful with the sizing. Revzilla was awesome for the entire process of course, these guys are awesome.
Yes, I recommend this product.
