Shoei RF-1100 Transmission Helmet The RF1100 Transmission is a sleek new graphic built upon the award-winning RF-1100 chassis. AIM+ Shell Construction Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System Q.R.S.A. base plate allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation. Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet Variable Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Top outlet vent is separate from the Shell- Integrated Spoiler, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation Four rear outlet vents allow for adjustment of airflow based on riding position Enlarged lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Interior System The entire interior lining (cheek pads, crown liner and chin strap covers) is easily removed to allow cleaning Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit and comfort Eyeglass compatible Tech Specs RF-1100 Transmission Graphic 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved Need help with sizing Check out our sizing video or read our Shoei Size Chart for more help.

The RF-1100 is one of the staples of motorcycle helmets, and for good reason. Exceptional quality and protection, comfortable, great visibility, and serious styling. You can also wear earbuds with this helmet, which I like to do for longer or highway rides. Pricey, but when it comes to helmets you get what you pay for, and really... how much is your head worth? I low-sided at about 40mph after getting rear-ended, hitting the ground headfirst, and the only part of my body that wasn't sore the next day was my head. Minor damage to the helmet, it now sits proudly on my wall and I bought another one immediately.
As to this particular graphic scheme, I like the Transmission a lot. It's subtle yet stylish, slick, and just looks fast. Pair it with a dark smoke visor (during the day at least) for maximum coolness.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This protector is made of that non-Newtonian material: flexible when moved slowly, rock-solid when moved quickly. That plus the ribbed design makes it quite comfortable in the jacket - not saying it conforms to your body like a glove, but it's not irritating. Fit perfectly in my Scorpion jacket, which I was very happy about. My only gripe is that the 40-50 small holes that are punched through to provide airflow aren't punched all the way through. I ended up taking a knife and cutting away the thin sliver of material that was left over each 'hole' in order to be sure that it breathed like I wanted it to. Minor inconvenience
Yes, I recommend this product.

Deuce Pants by Scorpion Fully armed and full-cut, these ballistic nylon mesh overpants are as cool as they look. Waterproof liner adds warmth when you need it. Articulated EXO-TEC CE armor in the knees and hips combines protection with ease of movement, and wide legs can be worn outside boots. Big zippered pockets keep cargo safely stowed, and plenty of it.

These pants provide good protection while keeping you cool. Lots of mesh on the quads for airflow, large armor pieces in the knees (which are adjustable - nice touch), legs unzip all the way for easy on/off over jeans. Liner is decent for water protection and cutting airflow for cooler days. Waist is comfortable and adjustable. Might want to size up, I found the waist a bit tight when wearing pants under these. Hip armor is a bit lacking but not enough to be detrimental to the overall product.
Yes, I recommend this product.
