Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires The Pilot Power 3 is the much-anticipated replacement for the Michelin Power Pure tire. The Michelin Pilot Power 3 is an all new high-performance, dual-compound sportbike tire designed for the street or the track. Features New 2CT+ compound on rear tire enhances tread rigidity and cornering stability by extending the harder compound underneath the softer shoulder compound for added cornering stability especially when accelerating out of turns Casing profile optimized for excellent feedback and handling All-new compounds for maximum wet grip up to 4.5 seconds per lap faster on a wet track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires Semi slick tread design maximizes contact patch for excellent dry grip - more than 4 seconds faster on a dry track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires Excellent longevity - 20 more tread life versus Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires

I am partial to the Michelin line of sport bike tires (this makes my fourth set). I've tried the pilot power 2ct and power pures. First off what makes the Pilot Power 3's better than the Pilot Power 2CT is the shape or carcass of the tire. I had absolutely no chicken strips left on the right side which is concerning since I wasn't IMO leaned excessively. Both had similar handling when raining. As a daily commuter in South Texas on a ZX6R all my previous tires had hardened from too many heat cycles before quite reaching the indicators and had a puncture from a pebble. The Power Pures exhibited excellent "flickability" I could turn in effortlessly. On the other hand I only got 4000 miles out of the tires. I am about 3000 miles into my Pilot Power 3's and there is no sign of tread wear or flat spotting even after several road trips and aggressive riding. As always Michelin tires are easy to mount if you change them yourself. Will continue to use .

ICON Rimfire Gloves The Icon 1000 Rimfire is old-world styling, top-shelf materials and cutting edge technology. The Gunn cut pattern imbues the Rimfire with a sophisticated rancher silhouette of years gone by. Constructed of select drum-dyed French cowhide, the Rimfire embodies the meaning of functional elegance. Pre-tensioned elastic in the palm reduces bunching. Integrated D3O knuckle armor and a cadre of metal palm rivets provide a roadworthy pedigree. The Rimfire is a riding glove that captures the fortitude and grace of a more civilized era. Features D3O ARMOR IN KNUCKLE ABRASION RESISTANT PREMIUM GRADE FRENCH COWHIDE CHASSIS FLOATING KNUCKLE CONSTRUCTION FOR FLEXIBILITY SECURE WRIST CLOSURE KEEPS GLOVE IN PLACE PRE-CURVED PALM AND FINGER DESIGN RIVETED PALM HAS NOMEX HEAT-RESISTANT BACKING

It's difficult to rate the gloves dexterity because my only reference were textiles vice leather but like everything new you'll become accustom to it. The gloves hinder the use of touch screen devices but the ergonomics are well suited for riding applications such as throttle control, levers and provide adequate feedback. Break-in period was only about 4-6 hours of riding throughout a week. Some Irish pennants appeared around stitching during break-in but will not compromise the seams if removed. The rimfires are my primary riding glove since I bought them for Texas winter. Not waterproof but no complaints during an intermittent drizzle. Airflow is ideal in cooler or windy conditions. There is a polyester lining on the posterior aspect of the interior that accomodates doning and removal of the glove. The glove has a 1" wide retention strap with micro-velcro that secures the glove well in addition to the elastic stitching.

Icon Contra Jacket From the shadowy realm of street-styled textile jackets, Icon again tapped their mx roots and tripled into the main. Contra is technically perfect - superior in fit and function to all that came before. Ultra durable nylons are strategically patterned into the industries finest no-bind fit. Fighter mesh panels allow intake and exhaust airflow dramatically reducing the chance of overheating. A full complement of Icon's internal CE approved Field Armor provide ample street insurance. Finally, ballistic rubber badging puts the classy in this chassis. Zip one up and become a believer, this is the ultimate in textile perfection. Durable nylon textile chassis Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Removable CE Field Armor impact protector elbow Removable CE Field Armor impact protector shoulder Removable dual-density foam back pad Removable insulated liner Internal zippered pocket for secure storage Relaxed Icon fit Imported

Good ergonomics, design and functionality. Great comfort and ventilation when riding but not as much when standing around. I find it helps maintain a good riding posture and provides some back support or when worn with a backpack (ride a ZX6R). Not even remotely water resistant is the only downside.
