Bell Arrow Solid Helmet Theres no doubt that price is a big concern for many people these days and the new Bell Arrow is proof that protection need not come with a big price tag. Featuring a lightweight polycarbonate alloy shell, adjustable flow-through ventilation and an anti-scratch coated flip down shield, the Arrow is straight up a good helmet at a great price. Features Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Tool-less, no-hassle flip-down shield Anti-scratch and UV protected shield Adjustable flow-through ventilation system for cooling and comfort Adjustable chin vent to aid in cooling and shield defogging Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner Aerodynamic design for exceptional stability and low wind noise Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Certification DOT Sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL Weight 1550g Note Helmet shown with optional tinted shield. Clear shield included. SIZING NOTE In our experience Bell Arrow Helmets tend to run 1-2 sizes larger then helmets in other brands, we recommend ordering at least one size smaller then you might typically take

OVERALL
Price is cheap for a first buy, protection is there, style is not. Loud but if you're new you won't be hitting the highways.
If you have some extra time and money, upgrade and get a Shoei or Arai or Scorpion, Just saying. ;)

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

The gloves fit like a charm. Got a medium size. I'm 19 years old and I've been using them for a month.
PROS
Really nice air flow
Great Protection
comfort feels good
Carbon looks good
Cons
obviously... don't buy for the winter(i made that mistake, i thought the summer would be around soon)
Started to rip after awhile along the palm where you would pull the gloves on.. so that upset me. (i just sewed it some more reinforcement and it is great now.. but still.)
Overall
Great feel
Great protection
Could use some work on durability
but you get for what you paid for.
GREAT PRODUCT, HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Purchased this jacket some weeks ago, not quite a month yet. And I love everything about it. First Jacket, and I didn't know what to really expect. I'm 5'11'' 167lbs and I just guessed and bought a medium. It's not the best fit but it works. Just a little bit tight but it feels right like that.
I have not fell with the jacket on but the protection that is included seems durable and I can say that it's definitely a smart buy as your first jacket or if you just needed an upgrade because the price isn't to bad.
My mistake... I bought it during the winter because it is almost spring so I just said "why not the weather will warm soon." bad mistake. the wind just flies right through the jacket... which is a good thing ;) if it was summer. So air flow is not a problem.
OVERALL!
Great Flow
