Alpinestars SP-2 Leather Gloves - 2012 Features Palm and finger constructed from Goat skin leather for superior durability Knuckle area and finger forchettes made from bovine leather for enhanced comfort and feel Patented 3rd/4th finger bridge prevents finger roll and separation during impacts Perforated cuff, leather top panel and ventilated finger sidewalls keep the hands cool Pre-curved finger construction to reduce riding fatigue
These gloves felt snug the first few times I wore them, but have stretched out and are pretty comfortable, although the fingers seem a bit short for me, expecially my thumb. However, they feel very solid and the quality is top notch.
Shark Speed-R Ike Helmet SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders. Double blade air spoiler positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet. Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet ans the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed. Features Latest generation composite long fibre construction Integrated, drop down sun visor Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with naked road bikes Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses ECE 2205 and DOT approved Two shell sizes Approximate weight size M 1450 g (+/ 50 g)
Fit, finish, style are all excellent. Venting is very good. No fogging on recent ride. One thing I don't like about the visor is that it's tough to find the lift tab with gloves on. It's annoying, but otherwise, no complaints at all. Overall, I really like this helmet.

Fits really well under my existing jacket, good coverage of my entire back and surprisingly comfortable to wear. I'm a little skeptical about the velcro waist fastener, but only time will tell about that. A HUGE upgrade over the foam back pad my jacket came with.

I bought these gloves for my occasional commute to the train station and for some local short distance winter riding. After about an hour of riding with temps in the 40s, my hands were cold, but not uncomfortably so. Unfortunately, I lowsided not far from my house, but the plus side is that these gloves protected my hands pretty well. The carbon knuckle protectors were pretty badly scraped and a seam was busted on the glove, but my hands were fine. Looking for a replacement, and these are still a great value IMO.
