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.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.
No, I do not recommend this product.

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.

I got this not wanting to spend a whole lot and still have room for clothes for a 4 day trip. Looks like you could get four shirts, pants, undergarments, PJ's and shoes in there with room to spare.
This fits well on the back of my NC700x. The straps are easy clips and the front two actually can double around and secure to the passenger handles. Simply un-clip the front two straps and lift the seat to refuel.
It has a soft rubbery substance on the bottom of the case.
One thing though, I do not think it is waterproof and does not come with a plastic rain cover. I sprayed some Kiwi waterproof spray on it and it seems to be waterproof now. No biggie really for the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm 5'10", 195 lbs. semi-athletic and usually wear a 34 pants. I wanted these as over pants so ordered the 2XL in short. I believe the regular are a 34 length and I wear a 34/30in jeans.
The short size fit the bill nicely. Length correct. Pads all in the right places. (Slightly adjustable as well.) I especially like that the hip pads are back towards the butt rather than coverage just at the sides.
I took the winter liner out and they fit over jeans snug but well.
Construction seems great. Zipper at fly has a additional velcro closure to keep water out. There is some slight velcro adjustment at hips if you need it.
The only complaint I would have is that the hip pads are a bit thin. I believe you can replace them with something else easily though. All in all a great purchase though.
Yes, I recommend this product.
