Shoei CW-1 Faceshield The new Shoei CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional racing shields with tear-off posts are available Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield.

Works great. Unfortunately my commute puts me staring directly into the sun, thus I purchased the darkest shield. Works great, if the sun is really intense I throw on some sunglasses under the visor. Keeps my face cooler in the summer than the standard clear shield.

Bought these as I needed some cold weather gloves (a 32F trip will make realize the ability of your gear very quickly). These stop all wind and are waterproof in a good steady rain (haven't rode through a downpour yet). I have used them down to the 40F's but nothing in the freezing realm so far, keep me nice and warm. They still seem a little stiff as far as gripping the throttle goes, I could use a little more curve to the grip. Secondly the plastic knuckle protection doesn't really cover all of your knuckles. You can see in the photo that it's stops about halfway across the pinky and index knuckles. Still some good protection there and doesn't affect comfort at all. Overall I am very please and they will do the job of keeping my hands protected/warm/dry very well.

I needed some new grips and went with these on a whim. Didn't want to pay extra shipping to buy the ones I really wanted that Revzilla didn't carry. I must say I really like these grips. Very soft and grippy. A slight "barrel" shape conforms to my palms well. They do help with vibrations as well. For the money they work great, had about 400 miles on them so far. Seems like some of the finish might be coming off but I'm not too worried.

Good pants, per recommendations here I ordered a size up from what I normally wear so these will fit over my pants. Still fit pretty snug around the knees but this helps keep the kneepads in place. So far these pants are WARM!! I have been wearing them without any of the liners and its in the 40F-50F. Great wind protection. Vents help quite a lot (we'll see when it starts hitting 90F weather). Haven't tested how waterproof they are yet, hopefully the pockets stay waterproof as this is usually where my cell phone resides. My only gripe is I wish the zipper went up the leg more, as it stands you cant put boots on before the pants.

A couple weeks in and a couple hundred miles so far. These boots are very light, great traction when back peddling, and very warm. Haven't tested out how waterproof they are yet. My feet stay nice and toasty in them on some cooler 40F mornings. I could have used them a couple weeks back when it was 32F when I left for my morning commute. Great product for the $$$, lets hope they hold up for awhile.
