I have been wearing this helmet for almost a year now and I would have to say it is just OK.
I think it is loud.
Above 80 MPH it doesn't feel secure on your head.
It is heavy even for a modular but not unbearable.
The field of vision is decent but I wish it was better.
Overall if you have limited funds and want a modular it is decent but after a year I am looking to replace.

This jacket is just plain awesome and for the money it is a complete steal. I bought the high viz and it is great. Fits great with lots of features. I rode it in low 40s weather and it was nice and warm with very little air getting to my body. I also have the Sprint jacket which is also awesome. If I was you I would buy one of each before they are gone. These jackets are every bit as good as the euro and other popular brands.
I can't believe they are so cheap..I know Teknic went out of business but good god..this is a great deal.
I am 6 foot 2 220 lbs and I bought the 46 and it is a perfect fit with plenty of room for layers. The sleeves are perfect length and so is the waist.

I live in Cali but believe or not it dips down into the 40's and 50's in the winter, especially during the mornings and evenings. This jacket is just flat out awesome. Very adjustable and very warm. The CE protection is great. I bought on closeout but even if I didn't it would be a good buy. Also the sizing is perfect. I am 6 foot 2 and weight 218 and I fit into a 46 with room to spare even when wearing my Forcefield armor underneath. I could have gotten a 44 but I wanted a little extra room for layering and armor.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I really like these gloves. I am happy I got them but sad because my 130 dollar Alpinestars gloves isnt much better if at all. They are both full gauntlet, both have knuckle protection. Are the Alpine gloves better? Maybe. Feel a little stiffer but I am not sure if that is better. Are they 100 bucks better? No way.
The Tek's have a velcro strap at the wrist so you can secure the gloves nicely (in addition to the gauntlet velcro strap). The Alpine's have a carbon insert at the outter palm area and the Tek's don't. I think I will buy Tek's from now on. You get a better bang for your buck with virtually the same quality.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wear these under my jeans everytime I ride. They are pretty comfortable and I feel safer having some knee protection when I ride. The tube is pretty adjustable with velcro straps. They have good CE knee protection but no protection on the side of the knee. I could also see using these while snow boarding. Good product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a pretty nice boot for the price. I have gone out on a few rides wearing these boots and here are my impressions:
1. Constuction is pretty solid. The toe protection is pretty good.
2. The ankle protection is OK. I wish it was more substantial.
3. The heal protection is minimal but it is not awful.
4. I love the shin protection. It is solid and completely covers the shin, I just wish the top part of the boot was more adjustable to be a little tighter around the calf.
5. The zipper and velcro system is great.
This is a good boot that offers decent protection and comfort for the price. Another good thing is they look like a normal boot. You can easily wear under jeans and no one would know the difference.
Yes, I recommend this product.

OK, I love riding and when I met my wife I had a bike but sold it shortly before we got married. Fast forward 10 years and a kid later I was able to get another bike but the deal is that if I was going to get a bike I must go all out on safety. I bought this chest protector and it is great. I feel like I am wearing a comfortable suit of armor. Easy to get on and off and fits underneath my Joe Rocket jacket nicely. Now, if you wear a very super slim cut jacket I can see that this might not fit underneath so I suggest an american cut like Joe Rocket.
I NEVER ride; not even down to the corner store without it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got these boots and I have ridden two fairly long rides with them on so I think I can give a fair review:
1. They look great -- My wife thought I got new Air Jordans or something ..hahaha
2. They are slightly wide but I like that. I like wearing two pairs of socks (I am weird) and my feet are a bit wider then most.
3. The toe box is ample big; toes don't feel cramped
4. The toe and heal protection seem strong but I wish there was more protection for the ankle area. I know these are riding shoes and not racing or touring boots but that is just my opinion
5. It did take me about 30 minutes to get used to shifting with them on but that is probably just a me problem :)
Overall, really solid shoe and they are comfortable to walk in and don't look like your wearing space boots :)
Yes, I recommend this product.
