The 4 Stroke gloves deliver on both style and protection. I am usually a medium but went with large for this glove and they fit just right. The gloves are leather and need a ride or so to break in but do so quickly. Airflow is lacking and combined with the leather makes them a little difficult to put on and take off during longer rides. Overall, the 4 Strokes are a quality Dainese glove.

I thought Arai helmets were as good as it gets and they are great but the Shark Race R Pro definitely falls in that same class. The helmet fits spot on and the quality and finish is spectacular. I wear glasses and this helmet accommodates them with ease. I also like the oversized breath guard as an added feature to channel moisture away from the face shield. I'm not a track racer but I certainly appreciate the safety and style this helmet brings to my street/sport bike riding.
With the Race R Pro, you will get what you pay for.

These hard shorts are great for summer, street riding protection. Combine them with a pair of compression shorts (they're not meant to go commando) and you'll be pleased with the comfort and fit under a normal pair of jeans. Hard tailbone piece does take a few rides to get used to but it's not uncomfortable or a problem. I also combine with knee pad armor for longer rides.
If you want armor protection that's also cool for summer riding, these shorts maybe for you.

Being a fan of Icon products, I've purchased several jackets and gloves from this brand and have yet to be disappointed. The Overlord short gloves fit great, and are comfortable from the get go. I find many short gloves from other brands not that comfortable around the wrist based on the closure type and location on your wrist. This glove is more like a shorter gauntlet than a shorty glove. It feels great at the wrist and the touch on the grips is very direct and sensitive.
Overall, a top notch, good looking pair of street gloves.

Icon Contra Jacket From the shadowy realm of street-styled textile jackets, Icon again tapped their mx roots and tripled into the main. Contra is technically perfect - superior in fit and function to all that came before. Ultra durable nylons are strategically patterned into the industries finest no-bind fit. Fighter mesh panels allow intake and exhaust airflow dramatically reducing the chance of overheating. A full complement of Icon's internal CE approved Field Armor provide ample street insurance. Finally, ballistic rubber badging puts the classy in this chassis. Zip one up and become a believer, this is the ultimate in textile perfection. Durable nylon textile chassis Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Removable CE Field Armor impact protector elbow Removable CE Field Armor impact protector shoulder Removable dual-density foam back pad Removable insulated liner Internal zippered pocket for secure storage Relaxed Icon fit Imported

This is the third Icon Jacket I've purchased as I have been very pleased with the quality, protection and style features incorporated in the Icon line. The Contra jacket is no exception, with the various fabrics, panels and TPU protection points built in, it's made to last. I feel this is a three season jacket, but geared more to the warmer peak riding season.
Lastly, I purchased black and with the white threading throughout, it just looks cool. Looking at the jacket makes me want to ride.

You can't beat this Dainese style and protection combo. I wasn't sure about investing in this type of boot but I wanted more protection than my low cut riding shoes. I have to say the fit is perfect and true to size, the styling and attention to detail is over the top and they have been a breeze to break in.
My only small complaint is...I went with white/black/fluorescent red combo and the red accents are more pink than red. I did my own fix for the problem, but I hope Dainese will correct for future production.
All-in-All it's a great quality pair of boots.

The Icon Patrol Jacket is the only one I will need this winter season. It provides great protection on the road, it's very warm and comfortable with only a light long sleeve shirt underneath and it's loaded with style features that Icon always seems to include. If you're looking for only one winter jacket, this is it.

Icon Stryker Back Protector The ICON Stryker Back Protector starts with a custom molded bio-foam chassis. Designed to mold to your back, air channels within the foam allow heat to escape resulting in reduced fatigue. Secured to the chassis are three layers of impact absorbing foam which are capped by an articulated reinforced plastic shell. The reinforced shell helps diffuse impact forces. In addition, the shoulder and waist straps are removable providing you with the option of installing the back protector into certain Icon jackets. Features EN 161-2/03/AC2006 CE approval Removable shoulder and waist straps allows armor to be directly inserted into certain Icon jackets Custom armor plate finishing Comfortable and non-restrictive Custom molded biofoam chassis Imported

I bought the Stryker back protector to complement my Overloard jacket and it fits in the jacket perfectly. Gives me solid protection in a a jacket that's already loaded with armor.
It does cause the jacket to fit more snug due to the thickness of the armor, but I like the feel.
It's a great addition to any Icon jacket.

Icon Overlord Textile Jacket With all the pattern engineering of the Overlord leather, but executed in a nylon chassis, the Overlord textile represents possibly the best value in textile motorcycle jackets. The durable nylon chassis, combined with large panels of breathable Fighter mesh, provides valuable protection while maintaining comfort. A full complement of internal CE impact protectors confirm the jackets legitamacy. Finally, the Overlord's precurved arms and strategic flex zones position the rider in an sportbike oriented attack posture. The Overlord textile - ready for whatever the streets may hold. Icon attack fit Durable nylon textile chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Strategically placed fighter mesh panels for ventilation Removable insulated wind resistant vest Upgradable to stryker CE back protector

This Overlord jacket provides protection comfort and style, all for a reasonable price. It fits snug, I think they refer to it as the attack fit which is similar to an athletic cut, so I bought the next size up. This is a great every day three season riding jacket.
I would recommend it to anyone who may be looking for quality, protection and style at an affordable price.
