Icon Alliance Hi-Viz Helmet When it comes to motorcycle safety - Icon believes the best possible protection is avoiding the crash altogether. Such was the reasoning behind the Alliance Hi-Viz Helmet. Painted in a UV-resistant fluorescent color and affixed with reflective graphics, the Hi-Viz will dramatically increase your day or night conspicuity. But this helmet is not just all about the color - it is also about the styling. The sleek clean lines of the helmet are emphasized by the graphic placement giving this Icon Alliance speed all on its own. See and be seen, my friend. ALL WORLD STANDARD, MEETS OR EXCEEDS THE FOLLOWINGDOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN)SAFETY AND TESTING STANDARDS.

This helmet is ten times as bright as it appears in the photos. Even though it does not match the orange of my bike, I'm still pleased with this helmet. The interior pads are quite comfortable, but not quite as long an oval as, say, the Arai long oval helmets, which fit like a glove. At less than half the price, however, this helmet is more than adequate. There are two objections that could warrant passing up this item. The first is that is does not have a chin skirt, which is annoying in cold temps. The second is that this helmet is not for those of us with a long chin. My chin comes too close to the base for my liking, but not enough for me to return it. Overall this is solid.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After viewing the YouTube video featuring this exhaust I was concerned that this would be a puny sounding pipe. I knew my '08 Tiger 1050 could sound awesome as I previously had an '08 Speed Triple 1050 with an Arrow dual exhaust that sounded incredible. I installed the Leo Vince Slip-On in about an hour (lots of bolts to remove rear plastics and luggage rack). I removed the baffle with ease and started it up. I didn't measure the decibels, but I'd say this pipe is as loud and maybe even louder than my dual Arrow set-up. The sound is not as growly as the Arrow, but I also had the off-road tune. This is definitely a tick-off-the-neighbors pipe with an early morning start. I'd recommend the off-road tune with the baffle removed as off-the-line acceleration now requires me to give it additional throttle so I don't stall. But not a deal breaker as the bike sounds great. This isn't as good looking as the Arrow pipe, but for less than 1/2 the price, who cares? Buy this!
Yes, I recommend this product.
