The ultra-quiet S2 spent hundreds of hours in Schuberth's aero-acoustic wind tunnel to ensure optimum aerodynamics with reduced drag and lift for the quietest possible performance. Schuberth's industry-leading triple-matrix shell allows the S2 to be significantly lighter while still providing outstanding ventilation and comfort. General Features Compact and lightweight Triple Matrix Shell Antibacterial, hypo-allergenic microfiber liner Extremely quiet 85db at 65 mph Integrated, drop-down sun visor Fog-free Pinlock dual lens system Patented Anti-Roll-Off-System (AROS) Integrated 31 inch FM antenna and Bluetooth receiver antenna greatly improves range and reception for the optional (sold separately) fully-integrated SRCS Bluetooth communication system 2 shell sizes Exceeds ECE and DOT standards 5 year warranty Shell Glass fiber is pressed at high temperature under high pressure and the addition of special resin in vacuum to a helmet shell with exceptionally high strength The helmet shell made of special EPS foam is designed to optimize the shock absorption properties EPS features optimized impact absorption properties by using a complex multi-density foam Interior COOLMAX interior, fully removable and washable Optimized seat shape Skeletonized for effective ventilation Allergen-free and Antibacterial Interchangeable comfort cheek pads and liner padding Micro-Lock ratchet strap Faceshield Pinlock faceshield ensures a condensation-free view City setting cracks the faceshield slightly Easy change visor mechanism allows for extremely fast and easy faceshield replacement Tool-less shield replacement AROS Anti-Roll-Off-System Specially developed by Schuberth, the AROS is a safety feature which, in case of an accident, ensures the chin strap is closed and properly adjusted.

After my first multi day trip with the C3, shuberths "flagship" model, I immediately purchased the C2 upon my return. The liner design of the C3 is such that there is a pressure point in the mid-top forehead—everyone I've seen who has this helmet has this indent in the forehead after wearing it....either your head breaks in or the helmet does...my head never broke in i guess. After several days of the C3, it became really really uncomfortable. This issue is completely gone with the C2, better liner, slightly more oval shape, same great features....and i realize that i prefer a non-flip helmet.

The Held Warm N Dry Glove is the choice for cold and wet weather riding. With Superfabric, reinforced knuckles,and high quality leather these comfortable gloves do not compromise protection! The Warm N Dry Gloves also work great with heated grips! The palm is thin enough to allow good feel for the controls and allow the grip heaters to warm your hands, while the lightly insulated back helps to hold in the heat and protect your hands from cold rain and windchill. Glove Outershell Glove Lining Membrane Comfort/Features Safety Palm in goatskin Back in stretch fabric (75 polyamide, 15 polyurethane, 10 others) with leather detailing Pique push-pull lining (100 polyester) Upper part in GORE-TEX Thermoplush Fleece (100 polyester) GORE-TEX membrane, waterproof, windproof and breathable (100 polyester with 100 polyurethane coating) Velcro adjustment at wrists and cuffs Stretch fabric parts (100 polamide) on back Visor wiper Hard plastic knuckle protection, covered with leather Side of hand and ball of the thumb reinforced Side of hand reinforced with SUPERFABRIC brand material Double leather at palm 3M-SCOTCHLITE reflector piping

i've had 2 versions of this glove. the styling on the newer version is way better than the older one, function is identicle. glove fits very weil, thumb is a tad long on me but fine on the bikes, all other fingers are perfect. with good hand protection and heated grips on the bike this glove will do fine in winter. i've found myself wearing it in freezing temps with no issues at all, much more feel than a full "winter" glove....on an unfared bike though i need a bit more in the warmth dept. rain? no problems. perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining. Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Single Flex System upper.

Simply superb!
First off regarding fit. Personally i don't get the sizing guidelines I've seen for this boot on revzilla and on other sites. One site actually had a full walkthrough with tracing your foot on paper and measuring it with a ruler—result was a solid 42 for me. In US sizing i'm a solid 8.5, that converts to a 42 on the Sidi chart. In US sizing i often wear a 9 for a decent "boot" fit where one can often handle a bit of room. If shoes need to fit perfect like for hiking, motorcycling, etc....8.5 US for me.
I'm comparing this boot in terms of sizing to 2 other pairs. My go to boot is the BMW all-round. Great boot—I was able to try on multiple sizes in the store and went with a 41, been ideal for over 2 years. My other boot is a Dainese. In that boot I'm a 42 and the conversion inside is listed as US 9....they fit much narrower than the BMW boots...the 41 in the Dainese hit my toes...incidentally the BMW boots are made in Italy where the italian brand Dainese are made in Indonesia? What?
On a lark, because this boot is out of stock everywhere in 42 and I really wanted it bad for a trip in June....i figured I'd order the 41, because my BMW boots were a 41, and see if they fit...both being Italian made...worst case, i'd swap for a 42 and maybe jump the queue a bit with an exchange status...
41 is perfection in the Sidi, for me. I'm actually at the limits of how tight I can adjust the second buckle....and I adjusted the top of the foot buckle a little tighter as well...
Point is, everyone is saying these fit true to size so either my idea of my own foot size is wrong (it's not—I've never worn a 7-7.5 US in my life)...or there are several factors to account for and this just worked out for me and my feet...plus my experience has been that leather boots will give over time...point is don't assume you will fit these according to the Sidi chart. Incidentally on the actual box there is a conversion scale...and the 41 more aligns with 8-8.5 NOT 7-7.5....so whatever....try on a couple of sizes...
FIT AND FINISH ARE NUTTY GOOD. I MEAN AWESOME. I don't think i'll ever buy another brand. Seriously. I could care less about price if I'm getting the best for what I need...plus my body is priceless and totally at risk on a motorcycle....i'll never understand people who penny pinch gear when riding on 2 wheels...but that's just me!
Comfy within minutes out of the box. No squeaking either...but with some more use I don't know...
Yes, I recommend this product.
