Very nice, not overdone product. If only Revzilla would carry the full line of a Spidi products, I would sell all my Dainese gear and switch to Spidi.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Small and easy to install. It is best to have a custom map made with a dyno. It is more difficult in California to find Dyno tuners, but find one and after tuning the bike will be night and day improved.

This is a very beefy level 2 chest protector which is used up to pro level racing. As Dainese literature states, level 2 is for maximum protection with less comfort, level 1 is less protection with more comfort so you must decide which is best for you. The protector is very well made and is thick and stiff. I wear it in my Frazer air summer jacket, which has a built in pocket for a protector. It works for me, but a thinner, slightly smaller, level 1 protector might be a more comfortable option for some. For me, I want the most protection I can get. I feel the size chart Revzilla has posted could use some tweaking. I purchased a smaller size than was recommended for my jacket size as I'm at the smaller end of my size range for the protector, so went smaller and it worked out perfectly.

The perforated fabric on this lightweight jacket ensures that the rider remains cool and fresh as never before.

Pictures don't do this jacket justice, it actually does not look this good in the product pictures! I initially wanted to buy the super speed textile jacket but it has been out of stock for a long time. I'm glad I waited and this jacket in the black/silver color. The fabric and design are perfect and beautiful and look very high quality, typical Dainese. I bought this jacket to replace my Dainese Shotgun jacket. This Frazer jacket flows more air than the shotgun jacket because of mare and larger mesh panels, and has the added durability of leather added in the arms, and a pocket for a chest protector which I have not purchased yet. Important to note that this jacket is a sport cut, with a bit tighter fit and more precurved arms, fits more like my Dainese leather jacket. I have never worn this cut before and my shotgun jacket is a standard cut with more room. If you are on the upper side of a size, you might want to go up one size.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought these knee pads because they protect the shin as well as the knee. Typical Dainese quality with thick straps and double stitching, and well thought out design. Others commented about the straps being too long or chafing. But that fitment differs by person, they fit perfect on me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Beautifully machined, very robust components. I purchased this lever after a mild tip over breaking the stock lever. Searching eBay for a stock lever replacement netted only people selling them for half of what this lever costs, no thank you!
Very easy to install, just remember to first measure the origional levers push rod before reinstalling on the new lever ( the push rod screws in or out for needed length on the new lever ) .
Why would you trust a inferior, copied part to save a few bucks when you can have these beauties that are American made!

Beautifully machined, robustly built, made in the U.S.A. I purchased a clutch and brake lever set for my monster after a tip over. Easy to install, remember to measure the length of the piston rods of the origional levers before switching them to the new levers.
Nothing negative to add about them, why would you trust copied, inferior, products made in china to save a few bucks.

I wanted a riding boot to walk in, so I ordered these thinking that they would lack durability and protection for comfort. I was wrong, the leather is thick and there are plenty of built in reinforcements inside, but they are designed with stretch panels in the correct areas to give enough flex. There is practically no brake-in, another sign of quality. I received these boots the day before riding to Moto Gp, laguna Seca and these were the only boots I wore for two days with no discomfort to speak of.
The size of these boots are may be a half size smaller than my Dainese axial pro new boots. I wear a 47 boot with an insole added because there is not a 46 1/2 . these Night hawk boots in a 47 fit slightly loose without an insole added.
I would recemend these boots for everything but track/ extreme street riding use.

Perfect hot weather jacket

The style, fit, and finish are why I now only wear Dainese, beautiful. I purchased the red( more Honda red than Ducati, which I ride, red color) from reading the previous comments, a little bright but the black on the sleves and sides balances out the red.
Air flows completely thru the jacket, and there is no liner, so this is a hot weather only jacket.
I recommend that you purchase the Dainese Shield air back protector for this jacket for extra safety. It is designed for this jacket because of the mesh design that lets the air flow from the front of the jacket thru the rear without leaving you a sweaty back. The product details says to use the wave G1 or G2 for this jacked, but the jacket also came with a separate pocket just for the larger shield air back protector.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimize the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanitized lining.

Fit, finish, and style are excellent. The fit is closer to relaxed fit jeans than bulky over-pants fit like other brands, which also hold the hard knee armor in place better, which is nice. Very light in weight too.
