The AFX FX-17 was the best helmet I could find at a low price. The flat black color looks just as cool as other helmets that cost $100's more. The size chart was right on for me; a medium fit my 23" head. I first ordered one size larger like others recommended and it was too big. The shape is more round compared to my Arai Corsairs street helmet which is an intermediate oval shape, so it feels a bit tighter on the front and back of my head than on the sides. The inside padding seems a little thin but it is still comfortable. It would be nice if it was Snell approved, but for the price I can't complain.

Gloves provide great protection and feel more comfortable than the older versions of Alpinestars that I wore in the past. I usually have a problem with the fingers on gloves being too short but these fit perfect. I like the black color but I'm not too crazy about the other multi-colored ones. I think an all white or all red for example would look better.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love these jeans! They are very comfortable and provide a top level of protection in a motorcycle jean. The low rise and distressed demin makes them look less generic than most other riding jeans. Even when I not riding I feel good wearing them. My only gripe is that they only come in one long 35" length. It would also be nice if they came with knee armour or at least had a pocket for it. Other than that they are perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

These gloves look cool and are very comfortable. However I don't think they provide much protection due to the very thin leather they are made of. They would be a great glove for something like mountain biking or scooter riding, but I wouldn't recommend them for any serious high speed motorcycling.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These pants were way too baggy for me. They had all the features I wanted like knee pads, kevlar, and stretch panels above the knees, but they felt too loose in the legs. The fabric also seemed like it was too thin and some of the stitching was a little sloppy.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These are perfect tires. They grip better than my old Pilot Powers and are supposed to last 20% longer too. I got around 10,000 miles out my old tires so these should technically last 12,000 miles. Not bad considering that I'm throwing 160hp to them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
