Can't get over how much I love this jacket. From how darn good it looks to how great it functions. I was really worried about getting a leather jacket and being too hot in it but rest assured the perforated version was the best option for me. This thing flows so much air and sometimes even too much (can get cold on those early mornings in the 50's). Wish more companies would make blue gear especially alpine stars to make some matching leather race pants but yeah I love this jacket and it does everything great. I'm 5'10 190 with broad shoulders and a little waist and the EU 54 fits like its molded to my skin.

Couldn't be happier with this purchase and upgrade from the foam insert the jacket came with. Greatest thing about this back protector is you get the security feeling of knowing its there without even feeling it! It's that comfortable.

Tire feels great after 700 miles of commuting and spirited weekend rides. Can't comment too much on tread life and wet traction but will update the review after I put more miles on the tire.

Getting close to 700 miles and I like them so far. I ride street commuting to work and spirited rides on the weekend but they feel planted going into turns. Haven't gotten caught in the rain so can't comment on that yet. Will update the review when I've put more miles on them about the tread life but so far so good.

Really like this product opposed to the stomp grip I had on my last bike. I ride in jeans most the time and the tech spec is far more comfortable than the stomp grip when gripping the tank. Only downfall is I'm having s couple corners not sticking one hundred percent to the tank. Other than that I love it and will get this for any future bikes.

Love the gloves and carbon fiber knuckles! Could go without the little black strap around the wrist and part of the white star design started peeling a little on me but these are my first gloves ever and I don't regret buying them one bit
