They fit great - their sizing was spot on. The airflow was above average thanks to the perf. leather on the top and they are simply comfortable.
I have put about 10-15 hours in them on the road in the past week or two and they have felt completely comfortable since day 1. They've continued to get better as they've broken in and they show almost no wear in that time. Comfort and quality - exactly what I expected from Teknic, exactly what I got at an amazing price. Wish they weren't going out of business - I'm a 100% believer in their products.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this on clearance and it's too bad that Teknic is going out. Their products are just such a great bang for the buck and the quality is the same as units costing double or triple.
I've spent a number of hours in the saddle wearing this jacket - about 8-10 hours in weather ranging from 60 degrees up to 95 degrees. In the 95+ weather, you'll be sweating. At a 55mph and above you won't be too bad - you won't be chilly, you won't have the airflow of a mesh, but you won't be dripping sweat either. You'll be comfortable - and I think that's important. I was just as comfortable at 95 degrees as I was at 60. The jacket does a really thorough job of being great for multi-season riding.
It fit well, I'm 6'6", 275lbs - I ordered the largest (54) but could have went with a 52 (2x) and been fine. As it is, the sleeve length is great, body length is great and the size works for me. Normally I look for big & tall sizes, but this jacket had ample room in all categories without having to go to the 'big and tall' category.
I am really glad I made this purchase - another quality item from Teknic at a great price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this glove because the price couldn't be passed up. I ordered XXL as I have large hands - these feel pretty close to just right although every so slightly on the 'small' side. It's nothing that makes them uncomfortable, but every once in a while they feel just a touch small when I move my hands certain ways. That could also be because they're still relatively new and getting broken in more.
That said, they are getting more comfortable with every ride; and they do a great job of protecting my hands but keeping them very comfortable. Even in some 100+ degree weather outside of Chicago (where humidity is always present) my hands were comfortable. Warm, but comfortable. Have had a few mornings in the 60's as well - my hands weren't chilled at all. So these really do a good job in terms of temps.
In terms of long-lasting, we will see. But so far they've held up really well and I'm impressed with the gloves on a daily basis. In the future should I need another pair, I will certainly be looking at these first.

AGV K3 Rossi Dreamtime Helmet The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident. Fabrics Dry-Lex with hygienic treatment Inside padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Number of shells 1 shell size Retention System Double-D ring Shell Painted HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin Shield Mechanism Perimetrical visor seal, XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) - shield replacement without tools in few seconds Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Note Clear shield is included, tinted shield available for purchase separately

This helmet is a really comfortable helmet that screams quality from the very second you put it on. If you read up on the reviews and tests done on this helmet, you'll find that it passes as a very safe helmet and that safety is noticeable the second you put this on. It seems nice and quiet to me even at highway speeds; I didn't notice any whistling or weird wind-related noises and the noiselevels were still such that I could hear what else was going on around me.
I'm a bigger guy (6'6" 275lbs); so I was worried about sizing since I was unable to find a dealer who carried this to try on prior to purchasing. I went to the AGV website and followed their sizing guide which said XXL should be fine. I ordered it and when it arrived it felt a big snug. After a few days of wear, it's broken in nicely and provides a good snug fit, but not too snug to the point of headaches or pressure points. AGV's sizing may have been a "touch" on the small side, but I wouldn't say their sizing guide was off at all.
The ventilation works well - I was riding in 100+ degree heat around Chicago (so there was plenty of humidity as well) and this did a great job of keeping me relatively cool. In that kind of heat - nothing will truly keep you cool, but I was not uncomfortable at all. I was very surprised by that - I'm sure when the colder months hit, being able to close off those vents will work just as well to keep me a little warmer.
The paint job on this helmet gets a lot of attention - which is great because I want drivers noticing me! My wife hated the paint scheme when viewed online, but when it finally arrived at the house she said "okay, I'll admit, in person it's totally different and pretty cool", so it's definitely done really well.
Overall, I don't think anyone could go wrong with this helmet, especially at this price point. Loads and loads of bang for your buck here. I kind of wish it had an integrated sun-visor but for me that wasn't a feature I felt was really needed. Outside of that, this helmet is everything I could have wanted.
If you get this helmet you won't be disappointed - or anything in the AGV K3 line.

I bought this because I need something relatively small that can hold my wallet, keys, lunch and phones for work and that is portable enough I can bring it inside with little hassle.
This does just that. As a bonus it came with a sunglasses holder inside the bag and a rain cover should it start pouring while out on the road. I've used it for a few days now and everything seems to work flawlessly. The popup pocket for smartphones is nice - it handles my S3 okay; I use an otterbox defender on my phone, so it's a little snug lengthwise, but not enough to be any huge issues.
This does not have straps to make this into a backpack off the bike, but really I just needed something I could toss in the fridge and this is small enough to do that at work.
It's handled the elements and road time very well also - I would recommend this to people looking for a great bag without the great price!
