Nicely put-together glove and very comfortable, and a good value at this price. Fit is as mentioned in the video - size appropriately.
No airflow so it keeps you pretty warm, as intended. I did need to fire up the grip heaters after about 90 minutes in 50 degree weather at highway speeds, though they were warm enough without grip heaters down into the 40's on a shorter ride. Still comfortable and not too warm into the high 60's. Haven't worn them in weather warmer than that.
The touchscreen pads are a nice feature and the short cuff easily fits and seals under a couple of my RevIt jackets and an Olympia I wear.
Control feel is good, and the gloves fit well - plus they're compliant and small enough that you don't really realize you're even wearing them.

Been using these as my trackday glove. Well priced for the features, great looking, and comfy. The liner is really for comfort vs warmth, but I've used these from the low/mid 40's up to the 90's my hands haven't been too cold or too hot at eiether end of the temp spectrum. Really versatile in that respect (surprisingly so)!
They fit comfortably with good control feel.
Highly recommended.

The ZLA video review is spot on, and I'm really liking this suit. Ordered the same size as my other RevIt jackets (e.g. Ignition 2) and it fits great and is very comfortable. I ordered the Knox back protector since it just comes with the worthless foamie in the built-in pocket.
I've worn the suit 4x at trackdays thus far, in temps ranging from 90F down to 50F. Adequate airflow on the hot days, though I wore a "heat out" wicking type baselayer (long johns on the bottom, short sleeve on the top) and had no problems with comfort or getting in/out of the suit. Just as good on the cold mornings, wearing some UA cold gear (long on the bottom, mock t-neck longsleeve up top).
Overall, like most RevIt gear, a very well put together suit, nicely styled, with a great feature set. Only downside, IMO, is that the liner isn't removable.

 Shark Speed-R Sauer Helmet

Utilizing all SHARKs expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders.

The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed.

Great looking helmet; I wear a medium in Shoei and the M in the Shark fit great. A bit tighter than the Shoei, but I imagine the pads will break in a bit over time.
Great field of view on this one, and the feature set is great. The visor is incredibly clear - like another review mentioned, it's hard to tell it's even down. The drop down shades don't have the same clarity as the clear visor, however, but they're still OK. The slider is well positioned. The eyeglass slots are effective, as is the venting and airflow. It's also a pretty light helmet, all things considered.
I was surprised to find this helmet louder than my Shoei Neotec (though I haven't installed the chin curtain yet). The plastics/switchgear isn't as high quality as on the Shoei, either, but the finish quality on the balance of the helmet and the liners are top notch. The graphics, fit and killer clear shield make this helmet.
It's a solid 4 star helmet; I've knocked off 1 star total for the additional noise, the sun visor not being as clear as the main shield (nor as clear as the Shoei's drop down, IMO), and the relatively cheap switchgear compared to the Shoei.

Seems well designed; easy to use and easy to store. I like the included reminder cord and storage case.
It doesn't go off too easily, but any moderate bike movement will trigger it. Just a bit more sensitivity would be nice (or adjustable sensitivity!)
Minus 1 star as it isn't particularly loud. It might annoy anyone messing with the bike and draw attention from those nearby, but you aren't going to hear it from any distance or indoors. The Xena alarms appear better for absolute security (beefier, harder to cut, louder) though this is nicely transportable and a reasonable deterrent.

Recommended sizing is spot on. I'm a 34x31 in jeans and ordered the 34. Fit perfect. They do bunch a little when off the bike, but still look good and don't drag the hems. I could knock an inch or two off the length for a happy medium, but it really isn't necessary. Pockets are well positioned and deep.
I have the pewter and wear them with a Rev'it Ignition 2, Oly GT Air Transition, or Tourmaster Transition 3 hi viz, depending on the weather or my mood. They match/compliment all of them well.
The waist/hip elastic is really well-designed: they fit great without a belt with or without the liners in, and whether I'm wearing jeans, shorts, or just gitch underneath. A pleasant surprise as most overpants end up too tight or too loose, depending on layers. Not these!
Flow an absolute ton of air with the liners out; plenty comfortable up to 85F (so far) and good down to 55F (so far).
IMO the hip pads aren't worth much, and the knee armor is just OK: the knee armor has a tendency to move to the inside of my knees without the liner in; I need to adjust them once I sit on the bike (then they'll stay put). I haven't figured out whether it's the design/shape of the armor itself or if I just need to better anchor it laterally.
Highly recommended pant - they perform exactly as advertised, are very versatile (especially given the great fit irrespective of the number of layers you've got on), and look great!

First, listen to Anthony and buy a size larger than you measure! I measure out to an M on their size chart and took Revzilla's advice to size up to an L. Absolute perfect fit.
The glove itself is typical Revit quality in terms of style and finish. Slim look, subtle protection features, and not bulky. They actually look better in person than in the vid, and the touchscreen panels are not the full fingertip but instead are a fairly slim (but still functional) strip just at the tips of the thumb and pointer finger.
Fit is great and just stretchy enough for comfort without any slack, excess material or bunching. Great control feel and no oddball seams inside that might otherwise pinch in such a fitted glove. The heel pad is pretty robust without being obtrusive and they flow a good amount of air.
They're beautifully designed and put together and a great glove - especially at this price point. 5 stars on the glove itself and for Revzilla on the review that nailed it in terms of description, features and sizing.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Really like these a lot. They're soft and comfortable out of the gate. Well put-together and the side zippers and mid foot/ankle strap provide a good fit.
Even if you leave the sliders on, they're subtle enough to wear off the bike...and very comfortable when walking.
They flow more air than I thought they would, actually. Should be great during summer...and the airflow is diffused enough that I still find them effective and comfortable at speed when the weather is 50F or thereabouts. If I rode regularly in the 40s or below I might consider a more wind proof sock than regular cotton crews, or a boot with less airflow.
Highly recommended...

This is a good looking jacket and is very comfortable and reasonably versatile. The fit is good on or off the bike.v
I've worn it in temps from the low/mid 40s up to the mid 70s. It's warm and cozy with the liner at the lower end and I imagine it could make it down to the mid 30s without difficulty.
However, when you hit the low 70F vicinity, the jacket starts showing some limitations. It's a nice but pretty heavy fabric, so despite lots of adjustable vents, it doesn't flow a ton of air...The achilles heel for me is that even with all the vents open, including the back vent, it parachutes like mad above 60/65mph. There's no way I'll be able to wear this for summer riding.
The fabric quality itself is good, but the build quality itself not quite so much. Too many hanging threads out of the box, along with some front pocket fraying in relatively short order. Not deal killers, but for the price I was expecting a bit more in terms of finish quality rather than slop.
Lots of pockets on this one, though I'd much rather have zippered side pockets than the front Velcro pouches, which although gusseted don't provide much confidence in keeping stuff in them while underway. The interior pockets are well positioned and well intentioned, but I find them maybe 1/4" too small for my glass case and cell phone. Bummed about that.
Aside from the parachuting, which I think is this jacket's true downside, is the main zipper. It's finicky. Smooth as butter one time, and an all out wrestling match the next.
I'd still recommended the jacket for looks and comfort across a reasonably wide range of temps, and the price is good given the feature set and flexibility, but I also think there might be better choices (Oly for example) for maybe 10 or 20 percent more money that will get you equivalent features with more attention to finish quality.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a pretty good overpant that is comfortable and uses pretty good materials. It does have some disappointing manufacturing and functional flaws, IMO, hence just 3 stars.
There are a lot of loose/hanging threads right out of the box, and one on the leg is unraveling entirely after just a couple months of use. The Velcro on the ankles isn't large or aggressive enough; you need to be precise when cinching up.
In terms of fit, they're comfortable with or without the liner and do great over jeans, shorts or sweatpants. I do find, however, the legs ride up quite a bit, exposing my ankle and letting air in, though the fit when standing is just right (even a bit long, actually). The butt is pretty baggy without the liner and looks a bit like I'm wearing a diaper with the liner in.
Overall, though, it's an effective and good looking pant and I do like the piping and features. I would prefer a pass through pocket setup or option, though.
Given the manufacturing/assembly quality, however, I will probably look for a different brand next go-round.
Yes, I recommend this product.
