I'm still young enough to want a stylish pant. I was looking for something to take on trips with me that I could be a little more casual while just out kicking around to give my full gear a break (going out to eat and hiking waterfall trails still feels funny in full gear). These looked like they would fit the bill. Fit was good, the inseam was long enough to ride well on the bike (a little long walking around). I like the knee protection, but like others have noted, the pads tend to ride to the inside of the knee a little too much. Though you can't tell they have knee pads in them, I ended up pulling the pads out unless I plan on more agressive riding. Fit is comfortable though, even long 400 mile days were nice. Quality and details are top notch. If you enjoy a Thursday night ride to the local hangout and want to look good standing around while have some protection getting there and back, place your order.

My dad and I typically take two to three rides a year where we pack up and leave for around a week covering 3000 miles or so. Though we both ride every day at least for our commute to work, I'm always super sore in my upper back and neck after several 400+ mile days back to back. I found the reviews for this helmet last september and was glad to get the email it was available before our first trip was planned. The helmet arrived super fast as anything from RevZilla always does. The box was so light, it felt like there wasn't a helmet in there! Out of the box you notice an exceptional quality in the carbon fiber work and detail of the inner padding, I couldn't waite to go for a ride. I've always worn Bell helmets in a Medium. I ordered the Medium and the fit is true with a little more oval which fit my head perfectly, while the cheek pads are a little snug. On the bike, the lense took only seconds to darken to a comfortable shade. I've always worn a tinted shield and my commute home in the dark kinda sucked. I noticed compared to my tinted screen this one gets just a tad darker in direct sunlight, just a little less in overcast and the clear while going home in the dark is so nice. The sides of the helmet aren't as close to my shoulders and allows free and easy neck movement. Noise levels will depend on if the vent on top is open. I've never worn a helmet that vented as well as this one does! With the vent fully open, it puts so much air on top of your head it's almost uncomfortable feeling at first. I decided to put the included air difuser in place and it calmed it down a little. Who would have thought that it was possible for a helmet to vent too much! I was set for our trip, I now have over 4000 miles with the helmet. It has been super comfortable from the begining. It is so light it reduced the fatige in my neck and back to near nothing. It cuts through the air with no lift at speed and is easy to move around in, doing look backs is where you'll realy notice the weight savings as your head whips side to side without the usual centrifical swing of a heavy helmet. It's more like it isn't there at all. I ride with ear plugs in most of the time and it's quieter than most of the modular helmets I've had on, though at certain angles looking down you can get a whistle from the top vent. Below 60 degrees the screen does fog up quickly but clears as soon as you move again. Riding through a few rain showers I stayed dry, though for much rain you'll be wanting the included pinlock insert in to keep the fogging under control. Though the helmet is broke in, it still is a little snug in the cheek pads, I'm considering ordering a set of large cheek pads to help out, they are cheap and available here at RevZilla as well. Overall, I'm super pleased with my purchase and my neck and shoulder relief has made our long rides much more pleasant. I even let my dad try it out for about 40 miles.. he likes it better than his Nolan and his Schuberth! He put in his order for one as soon as we were back from the trip. If your into touring, I think you'll like this helmet!

Looks good as well as fits nice. The one handed draw string is great. They don't feel bulky on my hand which allows great control of the bike. With my grip heaters on low, they block enough wind and allow just enough heat through the glove to be toasty all the way down in the low 30's. Great glove without a huge price.

This thing looks great and fits perfect... it has a very forming fit and will fit inside your helmet well without trying to move. However, the elastic back that makes it fit so well also lets in a chill on the back of your neck, also, there is plenty of material to tuck in for the front and rear but the sides will come untucked from turning your head. A little more material could have been used there. I will have to say, I'm a little disapointed in that I just thought it would be a little warmer. I bought this looking for something to comute back and forth down the highway to and from work down to 30 degrees or so... I have to wear a Patagonia neck gator with it to be warm enough and keep the air out, it solves the problems and keeps me toasty, but I was hoping this would be all that i needed.. If I had it to do again, I'd probably go shopping for a descent fleece style mask from one of the ski shops.
