top notch Leo Vince quality. wouldn't expect less from something made in Italy. the carbon weave gleams in the sun. I kept the baffle in but took it out about a week or two later once the stainless steel started to change color. and also, i couldn't stand the tinniness to it. after several thousand miles the tone finally mellowed out. it's loud, but its a very mean, awesome kind of loud. like an angry dirt-bike almost. performance wise it pulls to redline in top gear. your mileage may vary. i did notice that with the baffle in, low-to mid is closer in performance to stock. but with the baffle out, the (near) top end comes alive. you really feel the power come in between 7k-9k.

was deciding between this and the new astars viper air. saw them both in person and on impulse, went with the rev'it. i got it in black/anthracite. mesh jackets work as advertised. sitting in traffic you still get pretty hot, but as soon as you get up to speed its like you have built-in air conditioning. the styling, the features and the protection are all worth it. i especially like the belt loop, it really works!

I got these knee inserts for my Astars Axiom denim. though I've only had them for summer riding they do tend to make riding in jeans even hotter. I don't mind the discomfort though because I'd rather sweat it out than risk losing some skin. For $30, it's definitely worth it. Live free and ride smarter!

I'm 5'11, lanky build with a 38 suit size. medium would've been tailored but the large fits just as well for my long arms. leaves just enough room for a thin hoodie on those colder days. hard to tell what color it truly is. indoors it's olive drab, broad daylight it looks gray. I wear it daily, even when I'm not riding it's a suitable windbreaker. only knock I can think of is there's no back protector, so no going HAM! on the backroads, not that you're supposed to any way. can't go wrong with this jacket, especially for the price. pity it only came in one color. heather gray would've gotten a complete 5 star rating from me.

Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet The Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet is a bad ass classic in matte black. While the color is a classic the design of the helmet is all new and a refinement of the original Alliance SSR Helmet. Icon engineers have improved on the original design by adding features like a more ergonomic head shape, a new ventilation system and an Icon Pro Shield. The Icon Alliance Helmet was designed with the sport rider in mind and is a great option for the rough and tumble rider. Coming in under 200 this helmet is a great option that is also affordable. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI OR SG Certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country.

was disappointed when the AGV helmet i wanted didn't fit, then i saw the icon sitting right next to it, (it was same price, same matte finish) and it felt amazing. my only complaint is that the pro-lock takes some getting used to. either i'm just a n00b that doesn't know the trick to it or it's just brand new and everything is tight. the floor model didn't have that problem so it could be either or.
