AGV RP60 Royal Helmet The RP60 represents the proposal of the AGV range dedicated to vintage style. Reflecting its tradition for unmistakable style that its riders have taken on the racetrack in the past, AGV updates the characteristics to create a product which is sure to interest those in search of a helmet with the pure spirit of motorcycling. The design of the AGV RP60 is absolutely faithful to those used in the 50s and 60s, characterized by a clean, rounded shell, on which there are three press studs in the front area and a ring to hold goggles (sold separately) on the back. Edges and coverage of polystyrene in faux leather accentuate the vintage effect and further enhance the product. Features ACF (Advanced Composite Fiber) fiberglass outer shell One shell size Dry-Comfort fabric with sanitizing treatment Completely removable and washable inner padding Double-D retention system Ships with transparent-tinted peak Goggles sold separately Weighs 960 grams

I picked this helmet because I was looking for an open face helment, it has a good style, and because it's AGV. I also have a K4-EVO and I really like that helmet.
Sizing for this helmet perfectly matches the size chart. I fall right between a 57-58 cm and the Medium fits me perfectly. One thing I will mention as far as fitment goes is that this helmet fits tight at first but loosens up to be very comfortable after a few wearings. It does not fit the same as a full-face helmet on the cheekpads so expect a LOT of extra tightness there on the first few times you wear it.
It doesn't give me a bobble-headed look and doesn't wiggle on my head either. It's also a pretty light helmet which is a blessing. Riding down the road with or without my windshield at high speeds this helmet does not lift up on my head even with the sun visor/peak attached.
There are only 2 negative things I can say for this helmet and why I don't give it 5 stars.
One: It's made in China.
Two: There is a gap between the cheekpads and the helmet liner on the sides of the helmet that allow foreign materials (and air) just enough room to fly into your ear. And that is extremely annoying.
The goggle strap snap on the back is a nice touch but I personally find riding with a pair of riding sunglasses to be more comfortable.
I am happy with this helmet and if you like AGV helmets you will like this one.

I was drawn to these gloves because I wanted something leather and lightweight and they were on sale. I have been extremely impressed with them.
The fit is fantastic. It took a couple weeks for the leather to break in but it's like a second skin to me now although getting them on still takes a little patience. The knuckle protection is very good and not very noticeable.
I've also been very impressed with the wide range of temperatures this glove will handle. It seems to be comfortable from about 60F to 85F and even higher/lower depending on your tolerance. I wouldn't say they flow a lot of air.
I will be sad when these wear out and probably wind up buying another pair. Now if I could just get them in brown...

I've been using this jacket for a while now for whenever there's a slight chance of rain and I'm in my leather jacket. Thanks to the sizing advice from the Revzilla staff I went up one size and this jacket fits over my leather one easily and comfortably. It's definitely 100% waterproof but it is not something you'll want to be wearing in hot weather over the top of another jacket as it does block almost all airflow.
I'm very happy with it.

I've had and used these pants for a while now. I think I can safely recommend them. For being waterproof they do a good job of allowing air to come in through the bottom of the pants so surprisingly my legs have not sweat at all wearing these in semi-warm temperatures.
Only once did I question whether or not water had gotten in past the waistline on these and that may have just been the cold damp seat I rode on top of. I would buy them again.

I've had a few rides with this balaclava and the only real negative I can say for it is that it could stand to be just a little bit longer. But it seems to block cold air pretty well. I've ridden down to 38F with this on and been fine. The fit is comfortable for me (I wear a size Medium in Shoei and AGV helmets). Well worth the price.

I bought this glove because I needed a cold weather glove and I have previously purchased the Rev'It Fly gloves and those were awesome. Unfortunately I can't say the same about these.
The fit on these gloves was perfect for me. I want to say many thanks to Revzilla staff AGAIN for sizing advice. And the quality of the stitching looks top-notch. Unfortunately that's all I can say good about them.
Now the bad. These gloves add a significant amount of bulk to your fingers making using your controls difficult. But the real trouble with them is that they do not keep your fingers warm. I took them out on a 30 minute ride at 55F at 5:00 pm and before my ride was done my fingers were numb.
I will admit I am new to cold-weather riding and I have no fairings on my bike so maybe my expectations are high but for an over $100 winter glove advertised as windproof I do not believe this is an acceptable level of performance.

This is a great neck warmer and for $15 it's an easy purchase. Keeps me warm and seems to block wind pretty well, too. I'm really happy with the length, too. There's plenty of material to go from collarbone to jaw.

It's hard for me to review this back protector because it hasn't had to protect me. But it's very flexible and comfortable so you hardly know it's there. As long as it holds up like it's supposed to be I'll be very happy.
As for fit make sure you measure your existing protector. I used the Type B small in an AGV Willow jacket size 40 and it's a little less than an inch short longways and sideways but the next size up is too big. This is a very flexible protector so it can bend to fit through a smaller hole pretty easily.

I can't say enough good things about this jacket. It's a steal for the price and it's great quality and is a good looking choice for us cruiser guys.
With no sleeve length specified on the sizing chart I was unsure which size to go with since I'm a 39-40 chest 32 sleeve. I decided to go with the 40 and it was a perfect fit everywhere. This jacket fits just a hair small at first but when it breaks in it will be perfect.
The leather is thick, heavy, and stiff and the armor holds tight in all the right places. The back armor, as usual in most jackets, was just a throw-away piece of foam. I replaced it with a Forcefield Type B 001 protector which is about an inch smaller in height and width than the original foam but just barely fits into the access hole for insertion.
The jacket is all black regardless of how some of the pictures make it look and it does not have any kind of suede finish. It's all plain leather.
The vents are great and flow air very well. I took it out on its maiden ride in 75F and it was perfect with all vents open and the liner removed.
The size adjustments are truly ingenious because they approach adjustments from the opposite way that they are usually created. These adjustments expand rather than contract and there is never any extraneous material flapping in the breeze.
On the negative side I don't like the velcro connectors at the wrists. I don't believe they are necessary and they don't seem to be stitched on well. In fact one of them even has a slight cut in it which appears as if it could eventually rip off. But even taking these off wouldn't affect the fit or look of the jacket so I'm not sure why they're even there.

I was looking for a pair of riding shoes with solid ankle protection that didn't look like I looted them off a dead astronaut. It's hard to find something simple and functional that isn't a high-dollar boot and I've never been a boot man.
I was impressed not only with the look of these shoes but also the protection in the ankles and the air flow. There doesn't appear to be significant heel or toe protection.
As far as comfort goes they are pretty comfortable but there is almost no arch support and the tops of these shoes will rub you a little rough without some socks that go up high enough.
As for the sizing they are slightly wide but not enough to truly matter. What does matter though is that the sizing chart is not correct. It's a half-size too big. I wear a size 9 US and had to get a size 42 in these after the size 43 I tried on were too big. Sure enough the 42 fit perfect. Also looking at every other European size chart for shoes shows this size chart to be different so consider that when ordering.
