These speakers are a good replacement for the original, not great, but good. I listen to music turned down very low just to have some good background "noise" versus wind, cars, etc. I also wear earplugs and have worn a balaclava, and I can still hear the music and take phone calls with no sound issues.
The speakers occasionally come off the velcro, but I replaced with a better velcro and there are no issues.
If your'e looking for something with really great sound, these are not the ones. Mostly all the music sounds like its in the mid-range, so you won't hear the high treble or low bass.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei GT Air Helmet - Solid Colors SHOEI introduces the Shoei GT Air , a lightweight full-face helmet with improved ventilation, a fully removable noise-reducing interior, a built-in sun visor and a distinctively stylish shell that is as good looking as it is integral to its performance while on the road. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback Multi-Piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as diminishes pressure on the riders neck while riding at speed Sun Shield Visor System Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses Large and easy to reach switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield Distortion-free shield blocks 99 of harmful UV rays Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, helping allow for the integrity of the GT-Air helmets inner EPS liner to remain intact Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM) High performance fiber materials are combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior System 3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass compatible interior E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the Shoei GT-Air more easily removable Standard Chin-Strap Clip Neatly secures chin strap CNS-1 Shield System The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Includes new redesigned Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise Scratch-resistant shield coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV AB rays Safety Certification DOT-218 Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, the GT-Air Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I really like this helmet. Pinlock ready with included lens.
A bit noisier than what i was expecting, but I wear earplugs when riding distance so it does not really matter. I don't feel the airflow very much but I know the hot air is being pulled out because I am not sweating. Liner comes out easily for comm install. Helmet does not feel heavy at speed. I wanted the safest helmet, purchased full face versus modular. The good thing is, I don't think about my helmet when I'm riding, so it must be doing it's job correctly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees , prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

Nice airflow and quality build for a fairly reasonable price. I purchased regular length but instead should have bought long. Liner works well. Would have wished for snaps at end of pants leg versus velcro.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2.

This is by far the best glove I have ever owned. Purchased for the rain and upcoming colder season of riding in NY.
When you put these on, it feels like you had someone make a pair of hand made gloves for you. Initially, I thought the thumb was about a quarter inch too long, but when you grab the grips, the thumbs fit perfect. Wore them in then rain with no problems and even wore them in 80 plus degree weather and my hands did not get clammy. Palm is thin enough to feel heat from heated grips. Hard knuckle does not feel bulky as with other gloves I have had. Cuff is designed to be placed on inside or outside of sleeve. Held really gave this glove some thought. For incredible comfort, protection and fit, if you were looking to own one glove, this would be it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought for my wife. She loves the pants. When we go out, she can wear jeans/pants etc. underneath and bring shoes in panniers.
The only thing she did not like was the foam on the hips... she said it make her hips look bigger. I wish they would put a more substantial pad in hips, similar to knee protection.

Wanted a 3/4 for touring. Not too many choices with this many options at this price. Numerous adjustments to make it fit "just right". Liner comes out quickly and easily. The pockets balloon outward, so the jacket does not get tighter as you put stuff in the pockets. With an after market back protector, the jacket has a lot of substance, just they way I like it, but the weight seems to disappear once you are on the bike. With a technical shirt underneath and the venting of the jacket, I stayed cool in a 90 degree day behind a fairing. Hi -viz vest by Rev-It integrates into jacket.

I don't crank up the music, I just want something quiet in the background to drum out road and wind noise. Upgraded the speaker and it sounded a bit better than standard speakers. Easy to install and use. Very intuitive.
