It also has a toe slider, velcro adjustment strap and a styled TPU shift pad. This shoe will go up against any of the other sport riding shoes and boots in the 100 to 200 range. Look for the S-MX 1 Riding Shoes to be a perennial favorite for the casual enthusiast and hard core sport riders.

The boots are very comfortable. The strap over the top of the foot really doesn't do any tightening, it seems to be mostly for appearance. The front and back of the leg area are sort of cut out, which allows your leg to rotate further front into the boot while in sport riding position, which is great. I was hoping they'd be more protective, though. No ankle support. The only real protection is heel. No real "steel toe" effect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The pants vent well, that's for sure. I'm pretty skinny... 6'1" 160lb. I wrench the waistline velcro pretty tight to keep them up while walking around. There is velcro in the fly to keep the flap of the fly shut, protecting the zipper from your tank. That velcro does not seem to be sewn in place very sturdily, and I plan to have someone sew it in better so that I'm not worrying about the velcro pulling up. Overall, I really like the pants and would encourage my friends to buy them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I do not have large hands; I ordered a Medium and they fit perfect. I returned the first pair because the one pinky was quite short in comparison to the other. The second pair I received has all finger lengths appropriate. The only thing that bothers me is that my right hand pointer finger is twisted about 45 degrees. It's really weird, but doesn't really affect riding, so I am keeping them. Touch sensitive area for phones actually works very well. The leather is awesome!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the jacket. I purchased Hi-Viz and it's definitely bright. I am about 6'1" 160lb. Jacket appears to be short at the waist when wearing with jeans, but when you wear riding pants, it looks proper. The only point of uncomfortability for me is the underarms. The jacket is cut very tight in the underarm/shoulder. It rolls up the sleeves of my short sleeve shirts no matter what. Sleeve length is great. Overall, I love the jacket. The tight underarm is not deal breaker. I would recommend this product for hot weather riding. Riding around in 60deg weather I actually get cold because it vents so well.
Yes, I recommend this product.
