Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Air-Frame jacket offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for backspace G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

I bought this jacket because I wanted something for summer riding. Its got terrific airflow and nice protection for the elbows and shoulders. The pads are flexible so you can still wear the jacket comfortably even while off the bike. Im a slim guy and I wanted a jacket that'll fit my slim frame and this fit perfectly. Perfect for anyone looking for a european cut jacket. Sizing is true to size. It'll feel a slighty loose until you put in the back protector and realize the extra space was meant to allow for the back protector. The weight is nice, not heavy at all.
Pros:
light weight
european cut for slimmer users
flexible yet study elbow and shoulder pads
comes several different colors
terrific airflow for those hot summers
removable/washable liner that can be used to stretch out the riding season into early winter
Liner actually feels nice and cool against the skin and will pull away sweat/moister from body
cons:
as with all Dainese jackets, the back protector is not included

Yes, I recommend this product.

I had just recently purchased the Dainese Air Frame jacket and was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Dainese branded back protector and found this. The protection is the same CE level 2 rating but this one was reusable if you were to ever go down. The Dainese branded back protectors were for 1 time use only and would crumple on impact according the the product page. Airflow is great on this and its flexible so you can wear it and seat down without a humpback. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a back protector for their Dainese jacket.

The helmet has a matte finish with a skull and cross-bones theme over sweeping wings. The new RF-1100 helmets build on the success of their predecessor the RF-1000. Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology and modern testing practices, Shoei's world-class development team threw out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch.

This was my first helmet purchase and I had tried it on instore before ordering online. The helmet fit the best and was the right weight. Most of the other helmets didnt fit right and was pretty heavy compared to this. The visor is pretty wide and I feel as if I can see everything with the helmet on. I initially was going to purchase an entry level helmet and didnt even consider going straight to a high end helmet as my first. Now I have no regrets about this decision. I would recommend this helmet to anyone even as a first helmet. It is very very comfortable and I barely notice it on.

This is an awesome warm weather glove. The airflow on this glove is fantastic. It has a really nice simple design too. Bought this to ride around town on my cafe racer. The protection is minimal for city riding though. They have an american fit so I would buy a size up. I normally wear medium sized gloves but had to return these for a small.
