 Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid (2XL Only)
Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid (2XL Only)
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 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.

A more snug fit than the RF1000. Excellent visibility in a nice helmet. Plastic airfoil at rear base of helmet can interfere with high collars.

Haven't had these pants long enough to know about their durability and weather protection, but first impression is good. Decent fit, although lack of gusseting means that one loses a bit of reach to the ground when compared to looser pants. The seat area is slippery, but that might just be a combination with my bike's seat material. Liner sticks to bare legs in normal weather (probably better when it's cold out).
Yes, I recommend this product.

TCX Infinity GTX Boot As close to perfect as it gets, the TCX Infinity Gore-Tex Boot has been a staple of the TCX line up for years. This boot was inspired by famed TCX riders Cyril Despres and Marc Coma for adventure touring. A full grain leather upper with Gore-Tex lining provide unrivaled comfort and durability. This boot has been an editor pick since the beginning. Comfort Fit System (CFS) TCX products in the Touring Range are manufactured using techniques that ensure a high quality fit the Comfort Fit System (form moulding), through which the upper is shaped on a mould that reproduces the anatomy of the human foot. The Touring Range is therefore extremely versatile and high quality, with high tech products that can also be used casually and in the city. Full Grain Leather The uppers of the TCX Touring range are made using full grain leather. This is the most valuable part of the leather, which is specially treated and rendered waterproof. The result is an upper in a natural material that gives exceptional performance in terms of protection from atmospheric agents, breathability and fit. Gore-Tex Membrane The application of the Gore-tex membrane offers an optimal combination of breathability and insulation, granting the feet to stay warm and dry, never sweaty even in extreme conditions. The durable waterproof protection stops moisture from seeping in. Technical Details Upper full grain leather Lining GORE-TEX membrane Protections malleolous protection, shift pad, leather coated shin plate and inner thermo contoured protection Color Black Closure 2 polyurethane adjustable buckles Sole touring sole, oil and petrol resistant with specific grip area Sizes EU 38-48 US 7-13 CE Certified Note Boots may not feature the leather patch on the outside of the toe box.

It's a very solid boot with lots of structure. Very adjustable if fidgety buckles, good gortex liner, excellent sole. I've ridden them in the cold and pouring rain many times and they have performed as well as any other up-market touring boot I've worn. I would by them again without thinking (though not for walking or as a fashion statement!).
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've worn these in the 30s as well as in 2 hrs of pouring rain on a naked bike. They don't keep your fingers warm when it's really cold, but then they aren't magic gloves. Water proofing is excellent, and they do a great job down to temps where you really need heated clothing. Fit is excellent without feeling bulky.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've owned the Ignition for a year and used it regularly, so time for a long-term review. Cosmetically, it's aged very well and is still extremely stylish, probably more than when new. The jacket has a slim Euro fit so buy accordingly.
I've worn it in all riding weather. It vents well on hot days, but the black color heats up quickly. With the liner installed I've stayed dry in two hr rides in medium rain. It isn't very good in the cold unless you wear a thermal layer, because there is no insulation in the arms except the breathable waterproof liner. Of course, it isn't marketed as a cold weather jacket.
All in all, a very good jacket that looks good on and off the bike (as long as the bike is nearby), and vents quite well for something with this much structure.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable
Cons not enough reflectors, limited pockets, no water proof pocket
Yes, I recommend this product.
