Put on about 500 miles with this helmet & it's been great. First helmet, so nothing to compare it to really. Air flow is good when all the vents are open. Wish the inbuilt sun-visor was darker though, it was one of the main reasons for choosing the helmet. Maybe there's a replacement visor for that..need to do some research.
The helmet looks good, is light & quiet. The mechanism to have the visor cracked is awesome - I use it all the time. As others have stated size tends to run small... a Shoei large fit me perfectly but needed an XL for the Scorpion. The air pump feature allows you to fine tune the fit a bit too. Overall an excellent helmet & I'm very happy with it.

So far have been a good pair of shoes & with ~500 miles of riding they have become more comfortable as they get broken in. Keep reasonably cool even on hot days. Reasonably comfortable to walk around in too.
I personally didn't think they looked as good as the pics. If you need to have a riding boot for the summer that has to do double duty for walking around in & don't want a ridiculously expense pair - the Moment of Truth shoes are a great choice. The only think I don't like is the cheap roller blade type latch. It's a minor nuisance but shouldn't stop you from considering this shoe. The tongue of the left shoe keeps digging into my foot when walking...maybe I have it too tight/too loose. No problem when on the bike though.
It has lots of padding around the ankle & feet, so should hold up well in a crash I would think. The sole is also pretty good, have been in a light rain shower & it never lost grip on the wet road surface when stopped.

Been wearing this jacket for the last 500 or so miles paired with the Intake Air3 jacket & it's been great. Both can be zipped together on the back to avoid the jacket from riding up. Removed both the liners since it's been so hot. Air flow through these are awesome... a little breeze or moving slowly is enough to get some air in. Haven't used it with either liner, but without either, it's great. I wear them over shorts for fun rides & on a few occasion over jeans. The thigh length zipper makes is east to put this on with boots... with the liners, it might be different.
Would suggest to go with an in-seem one size bigger than normal pants... I went with my normal size & feel the pant ride up too much on the ankle when on the bike. The adjustable knee guards are good, adjusting them take awhile but once set, no issues.

Been wearing this jacket for the last 500 or so miles w/ the Venture Air Pants. Removed both the liners since it's been so hot. Air flow through these are awesome... a little breeze or moving slowly is enough to get some air in. The three pockets on the inside of the jacket are great for a wallet, keys & cellphone. Haven't used it with either liner, but without it's great. Oh & the jacket & pants zip together at the back to avoid the jacket riding up.
If you have a thicker mid section like I do, the shoulders may be slight bigger than ideal.. but they work & don't look too bad. It's more a rider issue than anything with the jacket. All the jackets will probably be the same.

I got this glove a few weeks ago... wore it for the very first time for my MSF weekend course. On the second day noticed that the stitching on the left index finger was coming off. A little taken aback since it's just 2 days of use. This is the only reason I'm not rating it a 5.
Airflow through this glove is excellent. You can feel a good breeze through the glove even when you're standing still. Would be an excellent summer glove if it will hold up.
