This is a decent chain tool for the money. The instructions could be a little better organized, but I found pulling up the online PDF off of RK's website is easier to look at. Its much easier to punch and press using deep sockets (i think 14mm and 17mm). It has attachments to do standard and o-ring type chains. The press plate is a little annoying to line up when putting on your master-link, but it'll be done with a little patience.
I made a youtube video of the process and showed the different attachments in better detail.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This jacket screams quality, workmanship, and design. I do product development for a living, so I knew I had to go with a Dainese jacket. Everything is function with form. I'm really happy with the cut of the jacket. I went with a size 52, as it has the removable windproof liner. A lightweight fleece or medium weight thermal layer is perfect for a chilly spring morning, so this really becomes a 3-season jacket. The airflow when it warms up is exceptional with all the mesh on the front and arms. I really wanted a textile mesh with good airflow without sacrificing too much safety. This jacket nails it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got the RST Silver shield to go with my new Airmada 4 Horsemen. It looks pretty BA with the graphics. Snapping the new visor on and off was a little tricky at first, but you get the hang of it pretty quick.
The silver mirror is great, its not completely layered on, as you can still see in through the visor when up close. My only gripe is that its still pretty reflective on the inside. If youre riding facing the sun, you can see your own eyeballs clearly. A helmet manufacturer needs to figure out anti reflective coating for the insides of visors!

Icon Airmada 4 Horsemen Helmet If you have been paying attention, you may recognize that ICON harbors an apocalypse fixation. Maybe its the sci-fi movies we visually devoured as youths. Or perhaps its something darker, like CNN.

This is a whole lot of helmet for $250. The graphics are awesome, the pictures don't do them justice. There's a reflective element in them and a lot of depth. It's not just a cheap vinyl sticker.
The helmet fits pretty tight at first. The cheek pads and neck make it a pain to take on and off. The nuisance is offset in that the helmet doesn't move a millimeter when making head-checks at speed. The neck also helps seal out air from rushing in and some road noise.
The helmet isn't particularly quiet but not loud. It vents well, and they fixed the front vent that now opens up instead of down like in previous Icon's. It vents exceptionally well, as I wear prescription glasses with the helmet. Haven't tried fitting ear buds though.
I'm still hoping the cheek pads break in just a little because i'm just barely biting my cheeks with my mouth closed. Luckily Icon sells different inserts in case they don't. I've got an RST Silver shield on the way to round out this badass design!
