Icon 1000 El Bajo Boots El Bajo - literally translated it means The Short One. Short perhaps in overall height, but never in performance or steez. Built on the same Goodyear welt bottom unit as its five-buckle Elsinore brother, El Bajo provides all the OG moto-presence but in a reduced two-buckle silhouette. Metal post fasteners, heavy top-grain leather chassis, and reinforced toe box and heel make for a serious piece of riding footwear. The Icon One Thousand El Bajo - always up to the challenge. Features TOP GRAIN LEATHER UPPER GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTI ON ICON CAST METAL BUCKLES ICON STAMPED METAL HEEL PLATE HEAT PRESSED LEATHER SHIFTER PANEL HEAT PRESSED MOUL DED LE ATHER SHIN PLATE AXIALMETRIC STEEL SHANK MEDIAL YKK ZIPPERS

Just received these boot from a local source and I've thrown then in the trash can already. These boots are so thick that I couldn't feel the shifter, causing me to miss shifts. Overall, great look, but not usable as a motorcycle boot for me.

Icon Overlord Short Gloves Targeted at the aggressive street rider, the Overlord short glove combines track level features with a wrist length pattern. The full Kangaroo palm, enhanced with Pittard's Keratan overlays, provides incredible feedback yet maintains serious abrasion resistant properties. A full Battlehide backhand serves and protects while keeping overall glove weight to an absolute minimum. Finally, the full plastic armor package and high dexterity floating knuckle design confirm the glove's performance lineage. The Overlord short from Icon, keeping the streets in check. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

Decided to try this helmet (small) since after reading about it a bit. I wanted to compare this helmet to my RF1100 (small) with 37 mm cheek pads.
PROS:
+Light weight
+Liked the Liner compared to the Shoei
+For the price, it comes with the Pinlock visor and lens.
+Design
CONS:
-Constant high pitch wind noise noted (>25 mph)
-slightly louder than the Shoei
-Wanted optional cheek pads
Fitment is similar to the Shoei (small)
Rides: 2012 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic
Yes, I recommend this product.
