Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid Colors SHOEI is proud to introduce the all-new RF-1100 Helmet, which is built on the strongest pedigree in the motorcycle helmet business. The Shoei RF-1000 Helmet has enjoyed great success since its 2003 inception, but that didnt stop SHOEIs world-class development team from throwing out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology, modern testing practices, and fifty years of helmet-building experience, SHOEI delivers the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy. The all-new, groundbreaking Shoei RF-1100 - where aggressive styling meets SHOEIs unrivaled attention to detail, and the evolution of perfection is once again met. AIM+ Shell Construction Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System Q.R.S.A. base plate allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation. Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet Variable Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Top outlet vent is separate from the Shell- Integrated Spoiler, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation Four rear outlet vents allow for adjustment of airflow based on riding position Enlarged lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Interior System The entire interior lining (cheek pads, crown liner and chin strap covers) is easily removed to allow cleaning Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit and comfort Eyeglass compatible Tech Specs 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved Need help with sizing Check out our sizing video or read our Shoei Size Chart for more help.

This is a solid helmet for the price. It's comfortable, light and stylish. I also purchased the black visor and it's fairly easy to put on/take off. I prefer the shape of my AGV helmet, but this Shoei helmet is more comfortable.

Having recovered from a recent motorcycle accident (hit from behind), I wasn't going to take another chance with major road rash. I did some research and most kevlar options are not attractive. These are the most stylish I've seen, with a low waist and form-fitting/skinny jeans cut.
But, they are not comfortable. I think this is due more to the kevlar than anything else. I am 5'4", 112 lbs and got the size 25. I tried the 26 size and the thigh area was too big. The waist is borderline too low (and I love low waist jeans), which is especially noticeable when leaning over on the bike. The denim is so stiff, I can barely sit. I'm hoping that after numerous washings, the denim will give a little.
Overall, I'm still glad I bought these because protection takes a higher priority over comfort. My current road rash is proof of that.

AGV K4 EVO Helmet - Solid Colors The K4 EVO is the most balanced and versatile helmet in the AGV range. Performs great on sportbikes or scooters, and everything in between. Improvements in weight and comfort, the K4 EVO represents the ideal solution for those who want an attractive, safe, comfortable helmet with an excellent price/quality ratio. The design of the K4 EVO reflects that of the K4, the model it replaces in the range. A design distinguished by the front air vents, the chin strap, the lateral lines and the spoiler, creating an immediate family feeling with other products in the recent AGV range. Features Shell Fiberglass ACF (Advanced Composite Fiber) Number of shells 2 shell sizes Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Internal padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Internal Padding New 3D construction for richer and more stylish padding Fabrics Dry-Comfort fabric with sanitizing treatment and new skin-friendly fabric, reduces skin irritation Face Shield Clear, anti-scratch and anti-fog polycarbonate Street 8 visor Shield Mechanism XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) for shield replacement without tools in seconds Safety Certification ECE22.05 Certified

I think this is a great helmet for the price. My friend has an almost identical AGV helmet but for the Ducati logo stamped on it, he paid 3x as much. Being a petite woman, I bought a small. But as another reviewer posted, I got a terrible headache after 1.5 hours of riding. For me, the pain was on the sides of my head. I've had other non AGV helmets before but never with this problem. I just bought a medium liner and hope this will help.
Other than that, it's very stylish, the face shield is easy to take off/put on, and it's fairly light.

I love this jacket. I was apprehensive about the European size conversion but this jacket couldn't fit me anymore perfectly. I'm 5'4", 112lbs, and 34B bra size. The size 40 jacket fits as if it's tailor-made. If you have a bigger chest, it might fit a bit too tightly for you.
The length is great with the back a little longer to hide that area above your butt that always seems to peek out.
It is more style than substance so don't expect ultra protection. There is no back plate. The cut is a streamlined, slim fit which I love.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought a small but it's too big for me. If they made an XS, it would be perfect. I am a size 4 normally.
It's a great jacket, otherwise. Stylish, heavy, and has enough pockets inside and out. The distressed leather is really nice. Perfect for winter riding.
