Just got these gloves after reading reviews and wanting better protection. I have been in A* GP Pros for a year. They were / are good but the Held Titans seem a good step up in armor. Excellent fit and finish. I am pleased.
Size...my palm measures 9". I have long thin fingers. I have been between XL and XXL in A* gloves. I ordered size 10 in the Helds and they seem to fit perfectly. Not too long in any finger and still pretty snug across my palms.

Really sharp looking cap. Just bought and installed the silver one on my Red/White S1000RR. Simple and clean. Impressed.
Took about 15 minutes going slowly. Just don't drop a screw in the gas tank.
Lightech is quality stuff. Recommended.

AGV Pista GP Carbon Helmet The AGV STANDARDS project, established in 2009 with Valentino Rossi as its leading rider, is ready to get on the track with the first AGV PistaGP helmet. The Pista GP sets new performance standards with its wide field of vision, low weight and compact dimensions, extensive ventilation, exclusive ergonomic design and class-leading aerodynamics. Development of the Pista GP began by taking measurements of riders heads with a digital scanner. These measurements were then used to design the helmet from the inside out. It is based on the Human Engineering concept and applies to a new design process which starts from the components that are in direct contact with the head and gradually progresses to the outer shell. As a result, the structural shapes imitate the area of contact thus providing greater safety and smaller dimensions. AGV EXTREME STANDARDS HELMETS use FEM (Finite Elements Analysis) to set new standards in safety, comfort and ergonomics. In addition to new levels of safety, the AGV Pista GP sets new standards in environmental protection with the raw materials and new technologies used in production having a focus on low environmental impact. I consider the PistaGP helmet to be a homage to Gino Amisano, an enterpreneur I admired for his ability to innovate, for the standards he set and for the competitive spirit he had when he faced a challenge. The new helmet is based on AGV Standards, the project that follows Amisanos core values and revolutionizes helmet development, setting new standards for protection and ergonomics that can be demonstrated. The new generation of helmets developed through this project has the task of bringing AGV to lead again in both the market and the technical field. - Lino Dainese Technical Highlights The residual impact force transmitted to the head is reduced by 36 compared to the limit established by ECE regulations. The HIC index is 48 below the limit established by ECE regulations. The basic visor movement area has been reduced by 71 compared to the GP-Tech helmet. This allows use of the space saved to increase the thickness of the absorption material, benefiting safety. The visor is Class 1 optical standard approved for excellent vision. The field of vision is 15 wider and the overall visor window area has increased by 9 compared to the previous helmet, without compromising its level of protection. The Z-Lift index has been reduced by 44 after wind tunnel tests. The air intakes have almost tripled in size, whereas the entire ventilation system of the PistaGP helmet removes heat and moisture very efficiently. The padding has a 3D concave structure, which is preshaped according to the morphological characteristics of the head, while the surfaces in direct contact with the head are free from stitching for guaranteed comfort. Thanks to its from the inside out design, the structural components of the helmet are designed to provide the required performance while minimizing size and weight. The frontal cross section has been reduced by 3 and the lateral cross section by 6 compared with the GP-Tech helmet. The fit of the PistaGP helmet, covered by three patents, provides an extraordinary high level of comfort and adaptability to different shapes, unknown up to now. Features 4 shell sizes Carbon Fiber Shell IVS (Integrated Ventilation System) with wide ducts hollowed into the shell Removable and washable inside padding Hygienic treatment of the comfort padding Breathable Lycra micro-porous lining and Dry-comfort fabric with sanitizing treatment using CoolMax fabrics Double D retention system XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) shield replacement without tools in few seconds RACE 2 flat, non-scratch visor with wide field of vision, ready and suitable for tear-off strips (sold separately) Total protection from UV rays Highly scratch resistant paint

I switched up from a Corsair-V size M to the Pista GP size ML. Size recommended by Revzilla sales guy - perfect fit. My head measures 56cm and is a long oval shape.
Big ups:
Weight, amazing field of view, fit/comfort and looks.
My little issues are:
The sweat band isn't very substantial and I need to mess with it a lot to get it set right. Considering removal.
I bought the "dark smoke" visor to go with it. Not very dark. It says 50% which looks about right. I need much darker like the Arai dark smoke which is about 30%
The bag is thin, cheap and doesn't fit well. I expected more at this price point.
Very happy with my new helmet.

Zero Gravity Double Bubble Windscreen for BMW S 1000 RR / HP4 Best optics of any windscreen on the market. All are fabricated using highly specialized blow molding techniques similar to those used to form aircraft canopies. The result is virtually disortion-free optics Made from the finest grade of 1/8 acrylic plastic. Each windscreen is stretched as it is formed, a process which results in superior strength and flexibility. This flexibility allows the windscreen to absorb road vibrations and resist cracking Factory drilled holes and profiles that match your OEM fairing for a precise fit Used by the best Superbike, Grand Prix, Supersport and Endurance teams in America, Zero Gravity windscreens dominate road racing

The shape of this windscreen gave me the improved aero effect I wanted. Much better flow over my helmet at speed than the stock windscreen (I'm 6'2"). The plex is thin and the edge finish is a little raw. For the price.....it's a decent buy.
This is a step down in quality from the OEM screen but an improvement in function. FWIW, I wound up trying and liking the Puig windscreen better than the ZG Double Bubble.
Pic is OEM vs ZG DB

Wow...these are a great fit. I wear a narrow 11.5US shoe/boot and the 46's fit perfectly. The inner boot laces up really snug which makes everything else fall right into place.
A few rides in them now. Great choice.

The Vertigo was created after an arduous 2+ year development period with lofty goals in mind. The boot had to push the technology of the sport road boot segment to an even higher level than the legendary Vertebra series. They are designed to be the best, no matter the cost. The Vertigo series of boots has achieved all that and much more! Shock Absorbing Heel Cup Three stage, shock absorbing heel cup molded in three different densities of plastic is one element that sets the Vertigo series apart from all other sport boots. This system offers a built in shock absorbing range of 3mm. The heel cups internal area is also fully lined with impact resistant thousand-air cell memory foam for and extra level of comfort and protection. Lining Each Vertigo series boot is lined throughout with lightweight perforated Teflon treated fabric in order to allow moisture to breath out to the Lorica outer and dry quickly with no mold build up in the long term. Additionally the inner ankle area of all Vertigo series boots are flly lined with Sidis own formula of perforated closed thousand-air cell memory foam. A totally breathable lining system. Tecno VR System The Vertigo series of boots are the only race boots to offer a patented Tecno VR adjustable calf system designed to accommodate calves of virtually any size in a clean, supportive and protective design. With a simple adjustment of the Tecno knob the internal onofilament line will evenly close and wrap the boot around the riders calf in micro adjustments for a perfect fit. A maximum adjustment of 5cm is provided. Replaceable Scuff Pad Option of either a ceramic or nylon toe scuff. Air Vent System Both the Vertigo Corsa and Vertigo employ an air ventilation system that can be opened or closed with a touch of a button depending upon a riders needs. This Malleolus guard on the outer edge of each boot also protects the small and vulnerable foot bones. Composite Inner Sole The composite inner sole of Sidi boots resists side to side compression offering greater protection compared to the leather inner soles that our competitors use. The insole features a removable arch support and will never lose its dynamic characteristics, even after months of intense use it is water resistant and is designed to withstand high footpeg pressures. Replaceable Parts Every bolt on component of each Vertigo boot is available separately. Riders can change the various components to replace items that have worn or have been damaged in a crash. Lorica reg Boots outer is fully constructed with Lorica a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lorica is also highly resistant to abrasion yet it still breathes with more than three million pores per square centimeter. Easy to maintain, Lorica doesnt stain and cant be scratched and offers, reduced weight, more flexibility and more feel than leather racing boots. Please Note The Vertigo boots no longer offer a replaceable shin plate.

I bought these in size 46. I wear a narrow 11.5 US shoe / boot . The length was right but this is a very wide boot and the calf opening is very wide as well. Quality and style were great but I needed a more narrow fit so I returned them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this cover as recommended by a RevZilla guy on the phone who advised he and plenty of other guys there use it. Size medium for my BMW S1000RR.
Goes on easy and fits great. Seems pretty thick and good quality. If I had a garage, I'd prefer that but under the carport is the fact so this cover does the trick.
Yes, I recommend this product.
