Shoei RF-1100 Helmet - Solid Colors SHOEI is proud to introduce the all-new RF-1100 Helmet, which is built on the strongest pedigree in the motorcycle helmet business. The Shoei RF-1000 Helmet has enjoyed great success since its 2003 inception, but that didnt stop SHOEIs world-class development team from throwing out the molds to build a brand-new helmet from scratch. Combining dealer and customer requests with advanced technology, modern testing practices, and fifty years of helmet-building experience, SHOEI delivers the finest sport-touring helmet that money can buy. The all-new, groundbreaking Shoei RF-1100 - where aggressive styling meets SHOEIs unrivaled attention to detail, and the evolution of perfection is once again met. AIM+ Shell Construction Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A.

I had an Arai profile for a few years and the noise to me was a big problem. It was apparent to me was that it didn't seal up enough around the bottom. It had, even with proper (snug) fitting pads, too many big openings where wind would come in through. Getting this helmet was a godsend. looks TEN times better (metallic black matches my Ducati SF perfectly), has tighter fit and finish (IMHO) and has a much wider field of view (which I never realized was lacking in the Arai until now). I will say that I got the larger/thicker cheek pads right from the get go to ensure a snug fit out of the box. Couldn't be happier with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Alpinestars S-MX R Boots
Alpinestars S-MX R Boots
The updated S-MX R boot has become an even more accomplished performer. Re-profiled to give better fit and feel. Greater flexibility and comfort, combined with its lightweight and ergonomic shape, using hi-tech micro-fibre, gives great riding feel and safety performance. The S-MX R is the ultimate performance/road riding boot for all-round use on the street and racetrack. A contoured shin plate protector is injected with high modulus TPU has been re-profiled to improve forward flex performance while giving highly effective impact and abrasion resistance. Air scoops have also been upgraded to improve venting. U-shaped calf protector is dual molded to improve material hardness and contoured to allow the Achilles flex bellows to wrap around the ankle and calf area. Additional calf support is given by a molded logo tab behind the gusset. An injection molded support gasket has been added to control stiffness and support in the ankle, while a wide and ventilated injected PU heel counter is combined with an internal shock absorbing padded insert and self-molding memory foam ankle guard. The S-MX R boot is fully CE certified. A unique, asymmetrical throat design bellows area has been profiled to flow over the medial side of the forefoot to improve fit, aid flexibility and promote natural movement. Internal lower heel grip, with a smooth profile, gives excellent feel and control. Shifter pad and forefoot protection has been enlarged and uniquely styled with over-injected TPU inserts. Enhanced ventilation via lateral air scoops and synthetic forefoot lining laminated with open cell foam for comfort and long lasting freshness. Long, side entry, instep lateral zipper closure, in conjunction with a large flap gives easy entry and exit. Additional adjustability and security is provided by the top, micro-adjustable, recessed ratchet locking buckle and hidden strap around the calf with additional Velcro flap closure over the entry/exit zip. New internal user-friendly calf adjustment guarantees perfect fit for bigger calves. A replaceable contoured foot bed sculpted from Alpinestars PU foam provides enhanced arch support and increased forefoot pedal feeling. Alpinestars exclusive rubber compound sole is highly durable and gives superb grip and a high level of pedal feel. Internal, molded shank for safety. Interchangeable bi-injected PU toe slider with snap-in assembly. The S-MX R is also available in a black-vented version, where the Lorica outer is perforated for even greater ventilation and rider comfort.

Great boots

I got these boots in white in order to wear my jeans over them (instead of sneakers. They're still a bit stiff when you walk in them (almost like ski-boots) but they're comfortable and I'm sure they will break in and soften up with time.
I normally wear a size 10.5, but these aren't necessarily sized to convert to an american size 10.5. I originally ordered a size 45, but ended up returning the size 45 and got a size 44. The fit better. The only thing I do wish is that they had more adjustability in the calves. I don't have the widest calves, but don't have the thinnest either. Would be nice if they would adjust a bit further down.
Pros Comfortable, white pair with jeans looks like your wearing sneakers, Fashionable
Cons a bit wide around the calves
Yes, I recommend this product.

GREAT gloves

These are the best gloves I've worn to date. I'm not a big fan of leather gloves because of their lack of dexterity and had been using a pair of fox moto gloves. These offer more protection since they have some leather key spots. I would recommend them to anyone.
Pros Rugged, Great Value, Comfortable, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is an amazing jacket. The jackets I have had previously seem fit fine until I actually got on my bike (they tended to bunch up in front).....this jacket doesn't do that. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is incredible and the fit is just as good. I couldn't really decide on a color so I got the black. If you're not sure about spending the money.......spend it!!! It's WELL worth it.
I ordered a Medium and it fits perfectly. I am 6'0 tall, have an athletic/muscular build, weight about 175 lbs, size 30 waist and between a 40-42 chest size.
Pros Rugged, Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Jacket is great. This is a european cut, so if you have a gut, this probably isn't for you. I wasn't sure about the size and ordered the Large, but ended up getting the medium (customer service was incredible with this). I'm 6'0 about 170 lbs and have an athletic build. I wear a size 40 jacket, so this should give you an idea if you're a similar build. The large did fit, but when I got on the bike it bunched up around the chest. I wanted a snug fit and the Medium fit perfect!! It's a summer jacket and will be worn with just a T-shirt under, so be sure to take that into account.
Pros Rugged, Great Value, Comfortable, Fashionable
