Airhawk R Seat Pad The last mile feels like the first, thanks to AIRHAWK's exclusive Shape Fitting Technology. This patented system eliminates painful points and promotes consistent blood flow for a longer, more comfortable ride. Memory foam can't do it. Gel seat can't do it. Only a genuine Airhawk R Seat cushion can do it. The neoprene AIRHAWK's stretchy material has a much more substantial and luxurious feel, especially at the end of a long day in the saddle. Features Center cutout area runs from front to back of cushion Re-designed cell geometry improves airflow under the rider no hot seat Back cutaway allows for a tail bone relief area with a tapered transition for increased comfort Cushion comes standard with cover, attachment loops, and cruiser straps. Cushion Material Neoprene rubber Cover Material Stretch polyester material top cover. Side panels are 3-layer knit polyester providing air circulation. Fluid-proof, non-skid base is easy to clean and durable. Dimensions 15.25 Wide x 14 Deep x 2 Tall (39.5 cm x 35.5 cm x 5 cm) 3 year limited warranty

You shouldn't go to the grocery store when you're starving. You'll buy stuff you don't need. When your butt's tired or sore after a long ride, you shouldn't shop for seat accessories that make big promises they can't meet! I have tried every possible inflation level from nearly none to too much, and it makes no difference. I keep returning to my stock seat for a more comfortable ride. On top of not delivering the comfort promised, the front attachment strap came loose after the first time I rode with it. This product is expensive and doesn't deliver. Save your $$.

The unit installs easily. I have owned for about a year and am disappointed with the performance. When changing function or stations, the "beeps" jump around and are unpredictable. Sometimes I can access my phone, sometimes not. At highway speeds, noise from my helmet makes it difficult to hear. I cannot download updates or work with the program because it is PC based & won't work with my MacBook Pro or iPad. Selection of stations is ok in the city but on highways away from urban areas it is not uncommon to get no stations at all. I have had some success with phone apps like TuneIn but reception is inconsistent. Overall, this has been more trouble than it's worth. Save your money!

Purchased a replacement for my shield that had an accumulation of scratches from nearly daily use, I can't believe I waited so long to replace the old shield. It's so easy to do, doesn't cost much, and it's like having a brand new helmet without the uncomfortable break-in period!

When ordering a replacement shield for my helmet I decided to add the tinted pin lock (I already had a clear pin lock) as another option. I love the slightly tinted view, and most days I now don't even use the interior drop-down sun shield. However, on really bright days using the tinted pin lock and the drop down shades works perfectly together. It completely eliminates the need for sunglasses with my Nolan helmet. And BTW. I'll never own another helmet without pin lock. Such a simple fix to eliminate fogging and it works!!

Nolan N104 Voyage Helmet Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum, when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

I have worn this helmet for about a month, 3 or 4 times a week and I am very pleased with this purchase. The pin lock shield works perfectly as I no longer am fighting "fogging" and the wide field of vision makes it much easier to see peripherally. The helmet fits me perfectly, although I ordered the size larger than recommended by the sizing chart and I'm glad I did because it was still snug the first time I put it on but it has broken in properly, snug fit, but not uncomfortable. It is noticeably lighter than previous helmets I've owned which is nice, especially on longer rides. The interior sunshield is great and I have not worn sunglasses while riding since I got this helmet. Several of my riding buddies have commented on how nice this helmet looks and the hi-viz yellow really stands out. I also appreciate the slide snap instead of D-rings as I can use it without taking off my gloves. If I had to come up with a negative, and this is a stretch, it is a little noisier than I expected, but I think this is the price you pay with all modular helmets. If you need to open the shield for slightly more air flow, the first opening is pretty wide. It would be nice if you could just "crack" it a tiny bit. But that is a minor complaint compared to how well this helmet lived up to my expectations. I would not hesitate in highly recommending this hat.

Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots A TeamZilla favorite, the Dainese TRQ-Tour boots are perhaps the best option for commuting, or sport touring. Collectively, we have put thousands of miles as well as a few crashes on the Dainese TRQ line and they never fail to impress. Recommended as a 3-season cold-weather boot that stretches nicely into the warmer months with Gore-Tex breathability, the TRQ-Tour Boots are the kind of protection that you will forget to take off! The axial hinge provides excellent protection, while allowing for comfortable movement as you walk. In addition, the rear entry zipper allows for easy entry/exit to the boot. D-Axial jointed anti-ankle twist back system in TPU Nylon toe TPU rear shinguards TPU heelcounter Nylon heel Cowhide leather D-Stone fabric Elasticated bellows Elasticated inserts Internal regulation with Velcro Closing with zipper at the back Waterproof / Breathable Gore-Tex membrane High grip TPU inserts Padded insert for gear shifter guard Reflective inserts Non-slip sole Italian patent pending Microelastic elasticated inserts(PCT Patent Pending)

This is my first Dainese boot and I am absolutely thrilled. I have worn the boot for several weeks now and it is extremely comfortable. It does run small and narrow though so consider that when you order. I usually wear a 9 or 9 1/2 and the size chart recommends a 43. I could barely get the boot on and didn't think I was ever going to get it off. Returned it for a 44 and although it was still a little snug at first, it has now become quite comfortable after 6 or 7 wearings. The hinged upper allows you to move without any hindrance and the rear entry and zipper make it handy to get on and off. It is also very comfortable to walk in and is easy to wear on a long ride. With my old boots I was wearing electric insoles on cold rides and I find that I don't need them with a pair of wool socks. The boot is very stylish without looking too "techy". I have had several guys ask me about them and have commented that they look really great. Overall, a great boot that I highly recommend.

This sock fits my foot perfectly, leaves no wrinkles or bunching up which is important for a fit in my boots. It stays up without being overly tight, and wicks away moisture from my foot. It is also very warm which is important on winter rides. Since using this sock I no longer need to use my electric insoles. I hesitated to spend this much for a pair of socks but am glad I did. It's the only sock I now wear under my Dainese boots.
