I did not buy this from Revzilla but from my local dealer.
There is one negative and that is the silly sticker they put on it that does not come off well. The dealer used Honda spray cleaner carefully on just that area and it came off o.k. Be careful to use only water and mild dishwater soap to clean the visor.
It works well and turns to smoke quickly in bright sun. In dim sun the difference is not as noticeable.

Bell RS-1 Emblem Helmet The Bell RS-1 helmet bridges the gap between the Vortex and the top-of-the-line Bell Star. The Bell RS-1 Emblem Helmet features all the technicality of the RS-1 combined with visually striking Bell logo graphics. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike.

I did not buy this from Revzilla but at my local dealer after test riding three helmets. I tried more expensive Arai and Shoei. The Arai was noisy but the Shoei was o.k.
The Bell however was like I was not even wearing a helmet. Very wide view, nice air flow, and very stable in wind. I have a long oval I guess and the helmet fit me well. True to size. I also ordered the chromatic shield which is really nice.
(I was not happy with the new HJC models. They seem to have gone to making a cheaper, noisier helmet.)
Worth every penny but I would suggest trying them on and riding first as every persons head is different.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The new helmet lock and detents on this helmet are awesome! I have never had an expensive helmet but I consider HJC to have minimal wind noise and this one has minimal wind noise. Very nice popping colors (orange). Just a well made helmet that fits my round head well. The improvements on this new model are great!
If I had to nitpick, it does not come with a chin curtain and the one you can order is very small. My eyeglasses sit up off the cheekpads some as well.
I tried a Noland helmet and it was very noisy compared to the HJC.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Slightly on the thin side material wise to what I am used to for $20. Overall this is a pretty good hat for the price. What you don't see in the picture is that the underside of the bill is urban camo.

I'll try to post a picture of this curtain compared to the one that normally comes on a HJC helmet. This one is just some small mesh that will do next to nothing for you. Very disappointed in this.

Nolan N86 Rapid Helmet The Nolan N86 Rapid is the new full-face helmet by Nolan characterized by its sporty, streamlined designed, compact volume, extensive standard equipment and close-fit comfort. The N86 is equipped with an inner sun visor (VPS), Pinlock anti-fog visor with silicone-sealed profile, removable/washable inner comfort padding, Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system. This system consists of a thermoplastic ergonomic opening lever, and a second aluminum toothed and holding lever. The toothed lever releases the micrometric strip, thus the chin strap can only be open with a very broad rotation of the opening lever. This device minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening of the retention system. Features Polycarbonate shell VPS (Vision Protection System) short dark shield mounted on the inside of the shell provides real eye protection when used independently from the clear shield Quick-release and multi-position anti-scratch shield accepts Pinlock antifog insert (included) Clear Pinlock faceshield and lens included Adjustable chin and top vents plus air flow rear extraction Removable and washable Clima Comfort interior lining and cheekpads with antibacterial treatment Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system Ready for NCOM Communication System DOT Approved

I got this helmet to try a more expensive one. I based my purchase on the other two reviews that said the helmet has quiet wind noise. Well, this helmet seems a bit noisier than my HJC.
Did not like the lock down on the visor. Seems a little hard to get open with gloves on.
The detents on the visor are nice, it is very stable at high speeds on the highway and feels very light weight. I like the small patch of reflective material at the back. Colors are great. Fit is pretty good. Drop down sun visor works well. Overall a good helmet for the price.
I think I am going to have to return this one due to the wind noise and the fact that I feel more comfortable (better fit) in an HJC.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Excellent jacket for the price. Fit is not exactly as the chart says. Just order what you normally wear in most jackets. I wear a large in an AXO and a large in the Joe Rocket was a perfect fit. (5'10", 195 lbs. semi-athletic, 42 chest, 34-36 waist)
Air flow for summer is excellent. It has a vest style quilted liner that does not extend down the arms so I could really feel the air flow through the arms. I would not recommend for cold fall riding in lower 40 degree temps.
Arms are fairly tight so if you have huge muscles try one on first. Armor is top notch. I emailed Joe Rocket and they got right back to me with pictures of the internal armor.
This has it all. Zipper for attaching pants, belt loops for your belt, adjustable waist as well as arms. Zippers for air flow in biceps, chest and back area.
The one and only negative is that the neck snap is not adjustable and I can't get it as tight as I would like.
Yes, I recommend this product.

For the price these are excellent gloves. Fit is a bit small so order up a size.
Good air flow for summer. I got these to go along with my Joe Rocket Comet jacket. They match perfect and fit tightly under the zippered cuffs.
Good protection on palm and back of hand. Comfortable fit. Soft wrist elastic area. Velcro closure around wrist works well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got these to fit in the shoulders and elbows of an older First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket. They are the exact same size and shape as the original temper foam. (Which was just thin foam).
The Roland Sands armor has three inter-locking layers and is extremely light weight. Looks very well made. Over all very satisfied.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These boots look better in person than in the photo. They are everything they say they are.
I usually wear a 10 wide in a shoe. One foot is a 10.5 and the other is a 10. I got the size 44. These fit very well although my foot is pinched just a very slight bit. Not that noticeable and I think they will wear in some.
The look is great. Seems like a mix between a boot and a sneaker. Protection is great. Awesome boot!
Yes, I recommend this product.
