This jacket is really nice. The fabric that it is made out of is very safe feeling. The armor is also great. The protectors in the elbows extend a good way down the forearm and the shoulders, while bulky are definitely great. The aluminum sliders on the shoulders look extra cool and add that extra safe feeling. The zippers are all great and work well. My only qualm is that the front zipper is on the left side instead of the right as I am used to in the US.
I ordered a size up to leave a little space for layering and the jacket ended up being quite snug on me so be a little careful with sizing. Overall great jacket and would purchase again,

Shark Speed-R Helmet - Solid Colors SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED-R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders. Double blade air spoiler positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet. Spoiler/stabilizer at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed. Features Includes Pinlock shield and lens Latest generation composite long fibre construction Integrated, drop down sun visor Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with naked road bikes Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses ECE 2205 and DOT approved Two shell sizes

The included sun visor is awesome. I feel like a jet fighter pilot whenever I slide it down. That feature is almost enough to buy this over anything else on its own.
However the helmet shines on its own with good safety ratings and great comfort. The fit is a little more circular than oval but that fine. The pads are squishy enough to be comfortable, but they feel very secure.
The only downside I have observed is that the inner sun visor is very hard to clean. Small smudges prove difficult to remove. The graphics versions look good but the plain colors still manage to look clean and fancy.

I bought the white version in a large. The palm fits perfectly but I have long fingers so occasionally the ring fingers feel a little tight, but overall with a few minor adjustments they feel great.
They aren't terribly warm but it's not too cold even on these winter mornings.
The sliders and thick leather parts make me feel very safe if I were ever to go down, especially the one on the heel of the hand. Its big but manages to not feel in the way. This is true for all of the sliders. I can barely notice them while riding.
The dexterity is also great. I can feel all of the switches through the thumb and I have great control over the throttle and levers.
Great glove, if you can score it on sale, even better.

I bought this boot when it was on sale. It is quite stylish and nice looking. But the reason I bought it was for its protective features. It has sliders and hard parts in all the right places and the sole is incredibly stiff. I have no fear of foot or ankle injury in the event of a crash. The torsion control is excellent and lets me shift easily and comfortably.
These boots were not made for walking, but even so they are not the worst thing to wear for a couple of hours while walking around. I bring an extra pair of sneakers everywhere to change into but its worth it for the safety.
