Icon Overlord Short Gloves Targeted at the aggressive street rider, the Overlord short glove combines track level features with a wrist length pattern. The full Kangaroo palm, enhanced with Pittard's Keratan overlays, provides incredible feedback yet maintains serious abrasion resistant properties. A full Battlehide backhand serves and protects while keeping overall glove weight to an absolute minimum. Finally, the full plastic armor package and high dexterity floating knuckle design confirm the glove's performance lineage. The Overlord short from Icon, keeping the streets in check. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

I friend I ride with has owned a pair of these for over a year and clocked up over 50,000km. So it made the choice easy.
I got the large, which is my normal size. Perfect fit, they are a tight fit to get on, but once on fit true. Took a six hour ride to break them in with no issues. The feel is fantastic through the kangaroo leather. Yes they are not cheap, but if they hold up and give me two seasons it's worth it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants
Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants
Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants Icon built the Overlord leather pant for the street. They are not a race derivative track pant poorly re-purposed for the urban environment. They are street specific and here's why. Crafted from the same 1.2-1.4 mm leather as our Overlord jacket, the Overlord leather pant is more than durable enough for the most brutal of street duty. The street specific pattern accommodates the aggressive ergonomics of modern sportbikes while greatly reducing the all too common butt sag when standing. Mechanical flex zones and integrated stretch cordura panels enhance on-bike mobility. Over the boot leg patterns eliminate the racetrack refugee look by allowing your boots to fit under the pant.The integrated plastic knee armor provides enhanced joint abrasion protection should you decide to put these pants to the ultimate test. A three quarter length zipper allows the pant to be connected to any of the Overlord leather jackets.To nip your question in the bud - no, there is no knee puck. We built these pants for the street not track, and dragging knee on the street, as we were recently informed by an irate law officer, is frowned upon. ICON attack fit 1.2-1.4MM Premium grade leather chassis Removable CE knee impact protectors Integrated hip/thigh padding Gathered stretch panels for comfort and flexibility Breathable panels for venting Strategically placed perforated leather for ventilation Premium YKK zippers Please Note Icon logos on knees are white, not black as shown in the product photos and video.

The only thing that would improve these pants are an adjustable waist band or belt loops. They fit one size lager and are long in the leg. Upside is they are easy to shorten, $20 bucks at local alteration shop. Knee armour has plenty of adjustment to get a perfect fit, I recon once they are fully broken in they will be my favourite day ride pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This helmet is not the best jet helmet on the market or the best full face, but it is the best modular helmet I have worn so far and is the only one that can be used fully open. Wind noise is about the same as my full face shoei. Although it tops the scales compared with other helmets it is very well balanced and does not feel heavy. There is no buffeting so far, I ride several bikes and have found the same result on each bike.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
