Bell Custom 500 Helmet Just when you thought it couldnt get any better, Bell went back to the lab to make improvements to the legendary Custom 500. A new headform means the Custom 500 now fits better and looks smaller on your head than ever. No more bobbleheads. The thin-profile shell allows the Bell Custom 500 helmet to sit lower on the head, and with 5 shell and EPS sizes, its now even easier to find the look you want with the perfect fit. Features 5 shell and EPS liner sizes ensure a low profile look Integrated 5 snap pattern for aftermarket shields and visors Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Multi Density EPS liner Stainless Steel D-ring closure Leather D-ring pull tab Five year warranty

Padding is high quality. The helmet comes down over the forehead more than I expected but not too far to comfortably wear glasses.

This really completes the full length race suit. It is comfortable, light and breathable. Better than UnderArmour or DryFit.

These socks are very thin but well-constructed. It might be the case that a pair of ankle-high socks on top of these will be necessary to get the same fit in the boot or shoe to which you are acustomed. The elastic at the top of the sock which secures the sock above your calf is strong but I didn't find it to be constricting.

This is a high-quality and durable camera in a package more sleek and sophisticated than the comparable GoPro HD. I am not afraid of technology gadgets likes these cameras but I had never used one before. The set-up was easy and intuitive. It is ready to use right out of the box.

I hope I never find out for sure but the padding designed to protect your tail seems lacking. However, there is form-fitting armor protecting your thighs that seems sufficient.
The brief is constructed of heavy gauge fabric that gives the look of fish net. It isn't designed to take the place of an undergarment but provides maximum airflow and flexibility.

I tried the Avro before settling on the Laguna. I really think this suit is more reasonably priced. I was perfectly happy to pay top dollar for safety which is why I went with the Avro right out of the gate. "Thankfully" I got a size too small and had to return it only to find that the Laguna was the only Dainese in my size in stock. They are virtually the same suit for $400 less. I am very happy with the Laguna.
I am 6'3" 205lbs and wear a back protector. The size 58 fits just fine. I would need a size 60 to get a chest protector in comfortably.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A 56 Dainese fits me without a back or chest protector. I wear a 58 so I can get the back protector in. I would need to wear a 60 to get the chest protector in at the same time (comfortably).
The shell is light and durable. It is very easy to switch from the combination chest/back arrangement to just the back protector. I like the waist wrap that secures the lower part of the back protector. It is wide and therefore doesn't dig in when leaning over the bike.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am an avid cyclist and wear only Sidi shoes when I ride. The quality I know from their cycling gear carries over to their boots. I wear an 11US and I usually buy a half size larger cycling shoe from Sidi. So, I did the same with the boot (ordered a 11.5US). The boot, however, was not sized the same as the shoe so it was about a half size too big for me as a result.
I did not return the boot because with just an extra footy sock is all it took to make it fit and I think I prefer the looser fit to account for a little swelling due to heat anyway.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Hi grade material and very comfortable. These gloves fit .....well, like a glove. There is no loose feel about them at all, which I like for a track day/race glove. The ventilation works and the armor is strong and does not get in the way.
Yes, I recommend this product.
