UCLEAR HBC200 Dual Force Bluetooth Communicator Featuring Boomless ABF Technology, the U-CLEAR HBC200 Force introduces Super Group Intercom and Multi-Hop technology, specifically designed for group communications with full duplex intercom. Multi-hop technology, used in military tactical communications provides superior sound quality and connection stability over Bluetooth intercom systems that suffer from interference and are line of sight dependent. By incorporating Multi-hop technology, each Uclear HBC200 control unit works as a repeater or relay station, enabling the network to grow as more control units/riders are added to the group. Depending on riding conditions, the intercom range between two riders is up to 700 meters. Adding a third unit/rider increases the intercom range up to an additional 700 meters. Add a fourth rider and the entire group can communicate up to 2100 meters (1.3 miles) and so forth, in full duplex intercom mode. With the latest firmware, the HBC200 adds connectivity with other brands of Bluetooth communicators, Multipoint Bluetooth connections for syncing multiple phones, iPods or GPS units and Advanced Private Intercom. Features Boomless microphone (an industry first) Music, Calls, GPS (Bluetooth devices) Multipoint Bluetooth service supports dual device connections Connect to two smartphones at the same time, or a smartphone and an iPad, iPod, GPS etc Super Group Intercom (Full Duplex for up to 10 riders) Open intercom with other brands of Bluetooth communicators Cross-band intercom enables you to connect with other riders, even if they have another brand of communicator Multi-Hop Communication Extender With 10 users connected, Multi-Hop Technology extends maximum range to nearly 4 miles and allows non-line-of-sight connections (range will vary on environmental conditions) Voice command for hands-free call pickup Hi-Fi stereo audio (AVRCP, A2DP) Patented ABF / DSP technology isolates your voice and eliminates all background noise Auto loudness adjustments GPS device compatible (Bluetooth HS/HFP profile required) One USB/Wall charger, two USB cables (Dual pack only) Easy installation on any helmet including full face or 3/4 helmets Speaker diameter 40mm depth approx 7mm Firmware upgrades available One year manufactures warranty Note Some of the features listed above require updating the firmware to the latest version.

Pros:
- Lightweight
- Battery Life
- Easy Install
- Connects to multiple Bluetooth devices (phone, gps, etc...)
- Best one I have tried so far
- Intercom mode is pretty good, voice is fairly clear.
- Noise cancelling works very well.
- Firmware is upgradable.
- If the unit pops off the mount the wire holds the unit on, even at speed.
Cons:
- On phone calls voice is somewhat muffled.
- Volume is not as loud as I would like sometimes.
- Volume is somewhat difficult, you press the button and sometimes if beeps to tell you it went up, but no way to tell when at maximum.
- The unit has popped off the mount (but the wire held it - flapped around on my jacket until I was able to stop and fix it).
- Very difficult to reattach unit to the mount unless the helmet is off your head.
Overall, its good. No boom mic (mics are in the earphones). Makes the ride much more enjoyable if you ride with others or want to use your GPS on your phone.

I wear a 10 or 11 in shoes/boots and the 44's fit well. The air vents actually do work and the TCS system not only protect, but make it easy to walk around in the boots.
As mine are white, you will need to spray them with leather protection prior to wearing them. The shift pad will get dirty, but it is a rubberized material so it's not too bad to clean.
Overall, great comfortable boot with many safety features.

I'm 6'2" 190lbs, thin build, long torso. I wear a 34X34 in jeans and the size 52 fit me the best. The legs are a good length for boots and the waist fits snug. the thighs are a bit loose, but that works well for me as I plan to get some armor for my thighs and tail bone.
The knee inserts often fold down in an odd manner when you put them on and then it will dig in to your knee - which is uncomfortable. So this could have been designed better, but it's not a huge deal after adjusting the pants a bit.
Quality seems good, all the zippers are solid. You can feel the wind (in the cold air anyway) on your groin due to the material in that area - this is a good thing.
Overall, a good buy.

These gloves seem well made. The kangaroo leather lets you feel the controls rather well. They offer lots of ventilation and still look stylish.
For me they fit well. I have long/thinner fingers and a long palm - so the size 11 XXL fits my hand. The wrist is a bit too wide, but my jacket sleeve makes up for that. Even still they can be adjusted with the velcro to stay on. The fingers are a bit wider than I need, but they don't bunch or feel odd when in the riding position.
Overall, good gloves for the price I paid and the first ones that actually line up with my long hands so the protection sits in the right places.
There is a button on a leather flap that lets you store the gloves together. However, it gets in the way when riding and bothered my wrist. No problem though, I cut it off with a pair of scissors.

Jacket fits true to size. I'm 6'2" 190lbs and a 54 fits perfectly. Everything seems okay, I just got the jacket. There is no spine protector at all, so keep that in mind when you buy. Revzilla had the best price and the service was very good.
