I was looking for waterproof gloves but didn't want to spend too much money. I had a trip scheduled and had spent too much already. I found these and bought for the price.
It turned out ias a big surprise for me. I was expecting an "ok to low quality" product and this is not what this product is.
I got a consistent heavy rain for 4 hours approximately and my hands were still dry. It started to get a little humid after that but not soaked like some other gloves so called "water proof gloves" I had in the past.
The protections look great, the closing system is very nice but it won't protect you from very cold temperatures. But it's a very good option, especially considering the relatively low price compared to other options of the market.

My intention was to buy a new pair of boots to replace my old ones, since I was going to do a major trip to the Atacama desert in Chile. I was going to buy an average one, but then, a friend of mine had an accident with his bike and hurt his feet wearing the same old model I had... The sole of the boot just felt off with the impact, somehow. That scared me...
I started looking for a model that would give me more protection. I found myself between Sidi and this one... I'm a big Alpinestars fan so I decided to go ahead and spend a huge amount of money for a pair of boots.
When the boots arrived it scared me. They are huge! I put them on and I couldn't move my feet. Despite of the fantastic looks and amazing protection features, I regret immediately. I pictured myself riding 3000 miles with boots that felt like they were made of steel... It felt like I was wearing casts on my feet.
But I decided not return and that was a great decision. After a couple of hundred miles, it starts losing up and fortunately, now, it feels great. Very comfortable boots. Yes'm they are still huge, give me extra work to accommodate it inside of the pants, and it takes a considerable space in the wardrobe, and my wife keeps reminding me about that... And yes, people call me crazy when they look at it, and they keep saying it's a motocross boot, but they are wrong. Alpinestars managed to combine great protection, fantastic design and comfort.
I walked a lot with this boots. They are a little "squicky" but do not hold your moves and doesn't feel as heavy and bulky as it looks.
Great boots!

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet The Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced. The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort. New or Updated Features Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range New micro-lock ratchet chin strap Larger reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratcheting Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets of all. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection. Optimum reception at all times Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads Ventilation The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Face Shield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified

When I first tried it, I almost sent it back because I felt it was way too tight... Then I remembered my last helmet was with me for almost 4 years so I basically forgot how it is to get a new helmet. I made the right choice keeping it. I believe the size is correct for me. ( all my other helmets were MD, so I chose MD for this one as well).
It's much more comfortable now after a few hours riding with it.
But I was really expecting it to be quieter. It's far from being noisy, but for me, it's not as quiet as a lot of people mentioned here... Maybe it's the shape of my head or just my expectations were too high on that subject.
Other than that, it is surprisingly light, it looks good, not great because the colors options are a little boring. I wonder when modular helmets will be as fun in terms of colors, as some of the sports ones... The vent is only ok. I still need to play a little more with the vent openings, but I don't think it will be too different from what I had so far, so get ready to sweat a lot under your helmet on hot weathers like I did.
But in my opinion, it is definitely a superior quality helmet.

It's probably not the best option out there in terms of amount of light but it really does a fantastic job for a low price if compared to the competition. Easy to adjust, great looks and fits perfectly the Givi engine protector of my SuperTenere.
I had the opportunity to ride in really dark dirt roads and even regular roads at night and it increases the visibility significantly if compared to the bike lights only.
A really cool feature to the bike.

I had to rate all features of this product to the maximum grade, despite of the fact that I think all extreme opinions to have little credibility. But in this case I have no alternatives but to do that. I dropped my bike twice and this product really did it's job. It held the impact (the first one was really strong), didn't break or got bent or scratched. Simply amazing.
I think it looks way better than competitive protectors and matched perfectly my Givi auxiliary lights.
I really recommend this one.

This jacket is really amazing. If the weather is hot, you can remove both liners and you'll have a very light jacket. The airflow isn't great (this is not an air jacket) but is ok.
The looks is fantastic and apparently it offers good protection.
In terms of comfort, no complains except for the neck. It bothers me a little bit but nothing serious.
It is a perfect match for my Long Range 2 pants.
I definitely recommend this product.

Givi Monokey 52 Liter Trekker Case The new 52 LiterTrekker bag is a great solution for adventure bikes, or just those with an adventurous spirit. Elaborately trimmed in anodized aluminum (52 liter case only), this bag is not necessarily specific to just enduro bikes, it can also be a luxurious accessory on the elegant ones. The 52 liter case dimensions are 23.6 wide x 18.1 deep x 12.4 tall and it uses a one-piece lid and will hold two modular helmets. Note Givi E142 Luggage Rack shown is sold separately.

I am very happy with this case I bought for my Super Ténéré. It looks amazing and there's room for a lot of stuff. Plus, when I'm riding with my wife, there's room for 2 helmets and a few more things.
The only "bad" thing about this product is, it's not very scratch resistant. A slight bump and you'll have a scratch on the aluminum finish...
But still, in my opinion, the best available option in the market.
Easy to open, close, instal, remove. It's definitely a fantastic product.

Givi Monokey Trekker Case 46 liter or 33 liter case constructed from aluminium with black plastic and top opening. Available in two versions, with a capacities of 46 LT (TRK46N) and 33 LT (TRK33N), the Givi TREKKER bags are the perfect solution for the bikes equipped with exhaust pipes on only one side. By affixing the smaller case to the side with the exhaust pipe and the larger on the other side, in many cases you can solve the issue of asymmetry (a problem that you might find using traditional side bags). Thanks to special selectors placed inside the bags, you can convert each version to either to fully open the entire lid or only the uppermost smaller opening (very practical for quickly accessing items from the bag, avoiding any ill timed spilling of the whole contents). Elaborately trimmed in steel foil, these bags are not necessarily specific to just enduro bikes, they can also be a luxurious accessory on the touring bikes. Sold each. 33 Liters 16.2 x 20.7 x 9.5 46 Liters 16.2 x 20.7 x 12.2

I am really happy that I bought a pair of 33's for my Super Tenere. I agree with all positive comments from previous reviews and I have only one thing to add... It's way too easy to scratch it. I thought the aluminum finish would be a tough nice looking feature, but I already got 3 big scratches on it... I'm careful with all my gear (my wife even jokes about it) and still got the scratches. A slight bump is enough to make you fell miserable for having a permanent memory of it.
That would be my only "bad" thing about this great product.

The good: Very comfortable, looks awesome, knee protections don't hurt you even in long trips, airflow seems to work well.
The question mark: I'm not quite sure the knee protectors would hold a strong smash on the ground... It feels like it won't. And I seriously hope I won't be the first one to try it. But I don't feel as safe as some other knee protections I've used in the past...
The bad: It's not really bad, but it can be a little inconvenient for somebody eventually. All my other bike pants were XL. Since I live in Brazil, and it wouldn't be very easy or cheap to change sizes in case it wouldn't fit, I was very lucky to decide to take the risk of buying a larger size. It's slightly tide... If it was a XL I'd have serious problems hitting the gym every day for 2 hours to lose a few pounds...
Yes, I recommend this product.
