If you have a bell helmet and have more than 1 visor for day and night your a fool. This thing is great. It has your covered day or night, cloudy or bright. Buy one now.

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've done about a month with this helmet and have to say this is a very good helmet. Revzilla review is spot on. The fit is a little bit more narrow than I would like, but I can still wear it with out any difficulty. The check pads also have great speaker pouches for a comm system. I have the Bell Transitions SolFX Photochromic Face Shield and couldn't be happier. Air flow is great and I like the defogging detent, nice for low speeds. Fogging has not been an issue. I had fog one during rain on a cold day when I was trying to yell to a friend.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is great. I'm sure you've read the reviews so don't need the product info. But I have to say the sound quality out of the speakers blew me away. They sound terrific whether your on the phone/intercom or listening to music. The mics are also top notch and do a great job even at high speed. Once you get one of these you'll wonder why you hadn't already had one. I can't recommend these enough.

Dainese Asphalt C2B Shoes The engine responds instantly to each twist of the accelerator, circles and intersections follow rapidly. The Asphalt boot was developed for sports riders who cannot do without technical footwear just because the weather is hot. A PU counter, a nylon heel, and elasticated inserts for a better grip on the bike are only a few of the technical solutions offered by the race-inspired Asphalt boots. A double jersey mesh liner, a shifter guard, and reflective inserts complete the technical features offered by this assertive shoe made in high tenacity fabric. Protection Nylon heel TPU heelcounter Homologation CE - Category 2 - 89/686/EEC Directive Ergonomics and Comfort High-tenacity polyamide fabric upper Double jersey airgap liner Other Speed lacing system Padded insert for gear shifter guard Reflecting insertsNon-slip sole Note The C2B designation indicates that the boots have gone through the CE Approval process for Europe. The boots are otherwise identical to the previous version they replaced.

I've been super pleased with this boot. It fit snug and great on the bike. Super comfortable on the bike with great grip on the pegs even when wet. Flows a good bit of air, so cold weather is not really an option with it. Plus is doesn't look like a tricked out race boot, so wearing it around isn't to much of an issue under a pair of jeans. Can even pass for a semi formal foot wear. It's also comfortable enough that you can do some light walking with out it being an issue (think trip to the store/mall/resturant). Speed lace works great. Love these things.

I've really enjoyed my EXO-400. I've been riding it for 3 almost 4 years and never had any complaints. It's handled snow, sleet, rain and blistering hot days and I've not had any trouble with it. It would be nice if there was bit more air flow on the hot days though. It's also cheap enough that it was stolen I wouldn't feel to bad about it. The visor is great and very easy to change. The lack of a defogging position though kinda sucks, but only if you in really slow traffic. I don't think you can get a better entry level helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First off this glove doesn't really accomadate me. I'm thin and I have large hands with long fingers. I originally bought a large, which was a good fit for the width of my hand, but the length seemed just a bit to short, the webbing between the fingers was like 1/2 inch away from my own. SO i upped the size to an XL, but to my surprise all that changed was the width of the glove, which was disappointing. I would have returned them, but they fit my father really well so I let him keep them. Another note is the knuckle protector has almost no flex to it and can be a little bit uncomfortable, this may be due to the fact that it wasn't quite in the correct position for me, due to the gloves being to short.
No, I do not recommend this product.

First let me say I bought this jacket because I work nights and during the spring and fall during the commute to work and home the tempreatures I ride in a little bit colder and I wanted something to cover my uniform, keep me warm but still have a jacket that I could ride in all day after it warms up. I've done about a month in the jacket and racked up about 1500 miles. Been in the rain, and light flurries with it as well as days up in to the 80s (mother nature is drunk). I've found it flows enough air on the hot days to keep you pretty cool and if it's colder below say 55 even with the liner I find that it flows a little bit to much air through the front zipper, a beefier jacket is required for colder weather. It's seems to deal with water very well, when I was caught int he rain, the only part of my shirt that was wet was the part that touched my pants.Fit wise it very form fitting, I'm pretty slender so I like the snug fit, but my one complaint is the torso seem a little short for me. I have a pretty tall torso and I find the jacket sits jut even with the top of my belt line, in the front, when standing of sitting upright, which inst much a problem only. In a riding position it sits very nice.The shoulders, chest and arms are spot on. The liner works very well, but it doesn't seem to stop the air from coming in from the front zipper. The zippers them selves feel a little cheap, and I've had some difficulty getting the front zipper to thread but so far they've held up and are easy to work when riding and wearing gloves. I also have the wave in the back and it fits very nicely. I don't even feel it when I wear it and the only time I've noticed it is when I sit in a chair while I wearing the jacket. Over all I'm very happy with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Done about a month with this in my Chrono Jacket. Covers a good portion of my back with out making me look like a hunch back off the bike. The only time I notice I have it in the jacket is when sitting in a chair with a back, but that's a non issue. Been in the 30-80 degree range, wet and dry and I haven't had any issue with it being to hot or uncomfortable.

jacket is pretty awsome, i've had one for years and its never given me any problems. Great for winter riding and if you open all the vents in summer its not to bad as long as your moving. Fits a little large, but I'm pretty thin, and I would have liked a collar strap for a cold weather jacket, but all in all this jacket great.
