I wear these on the street. I am an XL in Astars gloves it would seem, large in US fitments. Got these in white and green. Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail on these gloves! Super protective and snug! I ride with these on the street. The pinky bridge isn't bad at all. Just be prepared to allow substantial time for break in. The comfort level should increase abit as the knuckle sliders are digging into my skin somewhat, but I guess that's the sacrifice for protection which does give peace of mind while riding. I really hope they last, for the price they better as the grip area is already showing minor wear.

I wear this in my GP-R. A huge upgrade! For what a substantial piece of armor you receive, you would expect it to be more obtrusive but it isn't. Ventilation should be great. Seems a bit overprice though.

When looking for riding boots for my wife I'll admit, she wasn't really too concerned with armor, sliders, and serious protection like my Sidi's; these boots won't give you that. However they have some outer ankle protection and shin padding, definitely better than just regular street shoes, and she was happy with them. The quality seems very comparable to icon.

Not too sure about this one, for the price anyway. It was advertised to work with the Teknic Venom I got for my wife. Although it states it's CE rated, it's just a thicker and more durable foam. I haven't bought enough jackets and back protectors to see how interchangeable they are from jacket to jacket, but the Teknic Venom more than likely would have only taken this one. For this price point I would have expected something a bit more technical with ventilation. I was much happier with the protectors I've gotten from Astars, and Spidi for a similar price.

These are some nice LADIES gloves. I was impressed. A decent amount of protection for the street it would seem without looking like a robot. Definitely not a track glove with thick cowhide and external stitching, but way better than nothing. My wife told me the fit was good for her and they were comfortable. I would have hoped the 3rd finger and pinky bridge would have been a bit more substantial though.

This thing is beast! Awesome looking jacket. I got it out the box and was just blown away. The crafstmanship on this jacket is unreal! Lots of protection, the chest and back army fit perfectly. Liner seems very warm and easy to remove. I wear a 44 US and got this in a 46 euro and it fit just right. This is my first motorcycle jacket and I just can't say how awesome it is. Everything just feels great. My wife said it was "sexy". I went for the red, white, and black.
