Great shoes with just enough protection for the commute. The waterproof ones do not breath well at all, but does anything that is waterproof? They are also very comfortable to ride in, and can in fact be worn all day but if that is what you are planning to do buy the non waterproof version of the shoe.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai Signet-Q Karel Abraham Replica Helmet The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pin Lock Max-Vision Brow Vent face shield Included with the helmet Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

Well after waiting months 6 to be exact for this helmet to get off the pre order list and actually be available to buy it finally arrived. I was already a big fan of the Arai Signet-Q, not only for the fit but for all those little details that make an Arai so amazing. The attention to detail, the safety factors and added features make this line well worth the price. To be honest I always find it crazy when people complain about the price, and how you are paying for a brand, its complete rubbish. If you believe the cost is too high go to wallmart with a handful of coupons and buy a mass produced helmet on blue light special. Its your head people, spend the money to protect it. Every single person I know that has crashed in an Arai still rides in an Arai. If you cannot afford one the answer is simple, buy a cheaper bike.....as for the Abraham model is concerned its everything I had hoped for and more. The video just doesn't seem to do this helmet justice. Its load, super bright and in my opinion gets as many looks for its style as it does for its high visibility. What as amazing product that was well worth the wait.....
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have crashed in this helmet and I didn't even know I hit my head on the asphalt until I took off the helmet and saw the exhaust vent was missing. For reference I crashed at 178 kmph 75-80mph. I have since bought two more. Note! The matte black does get a little toasty as it does not reflect the heat.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Avro jacket is amazing on the bike, to be honest you feel bulletproof, which may or not be a good thing, depending on your application. On the Bike in a 3/4 the comfort is amazing. However, due to the pre-curve of the jacket it does give off the robot arms feeling. So if you are looking for a fashion statement, or you don't mind looking like a robot you might want to look further. With that being said I get compliments everyday I where it. The solid black on black looks wicked, and the fit is true to size. I have muscular shoulders with a slim waste and the 56 fit perfect (normally where 44). It is a very race style fit so if you have a bit of a belly either go on a diet, or look further, because when the fit in the arms is spot on you could wear this jacket for day at a time in complete comfort. Going up or down a size to force it to fit is not a viable option with a $700 jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First and foremost let me tell you that I have just crashed in this glove and it wasn't minor, but thankfully it was a low side crash. 175 kmph, and slid a good 90 feet before stopping. It was one of those crashes that you know is about to happen, and their is nothing you can do to stop it; except prepare. The thick palm sliders that I hated upon buying the gloves, hit the ground first and performed fantastically. When my hand started turning over as I rolled to my back I felt my pinky finger catch, and for a moment thought, Oh! No, not the pinky again.... The tiny little, thought it was for the illusion of safety slider on the outside of the little finger saved my finger from a nasty break. After I came to a stop and a once over my body to make sure that everything was in its proper place I opened my visor to inspect what I was sure were going to be ruined gloves. However, to my surprise where completely intact, and reusable pair of Rev'it Curb Gloves. After a 90ft slide I could hardly see any damage at all to the gloves. Sure the sliders are a little worn down, but nothing major. All seams are still intact and holding strong.
The downside to the gloves are a few minor to serious issues. One is the size, these gloves run small even for Rev'it in which a Lg is a 9 instead of a 10 like Dainese. Therefore please save yourself the hassle and order a size up. If you are worried, to be honest you could most likely order two sizes up and make it work. For reference a Dainese Lg fits me just a tad snug, but after break-in its perfect. In the Curb after breaking in the XL they still feel a bit tight in the palm (4 months later).
The second issue is breathability. The perf, at the wrist is somewhere between worthless and whatever, and the venting in everything forward does not exist. the light fleece liner would be great in Spring or Fall, but in anything over 80 degrees you are going to sweat, tolerance be da*ned.
The tiny pinky slider works, but it would really give you a far greater peace of mind to has some kind of extra protection around that area, and up the pinky.
Another error in design is the lack of flex panels in the back of the knuckle region. the front panels work fine, but at times it feels weird. A flaw they have clearly fixed with the Chevron, just released.
The plus's to the glove besides the protection are as follows. The goat skin that Rev'it has used in the palm is fantastic, the sensitivity is unbelievable (best I have ever worn in any brand). The cuff is loose enough to get much needed exhaust, but is so low profile that it will not look like you are wearing winter gloves from the eighties (I miss My Sickle still though). The elastication at the closure is odd and looks like woman's driving gloves before closing, but is it a big deal...? No, because the upsides of the cuff make you not care about the feminine elastic. Their is no doubt that the extra stitching on the extended cuff works wonders(as it does throughout the glove) in keeping a gap free transition between glove and jacket.
All in all, the protective aspect and price alone would compel me to order these gloves again (other options). Not a single scratch on my fingers, or palm. The gloves are still usable, and I didn't break a finger, heck yeah!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
