The CSOne is a quick and easy install. It produces a deeper tone at idle and growl under throttle. At highway speeds the CSOne is only slightly more noticeable than the stock system. Overall I’ve been very pleased with the unit fit and finish. Longer term use will be delayed by winter weather.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this bag to better fit a C14. I wanted something taller and more narrow to sit on the passenger seat. I like the expansion feature, side pockets and lid zipper pocket. I've not had to use the waterproof cover yet.
I have a Wolfman tank bag for some time and the build quality and features are similar to this bag.
Good stuff!

These gloves met my expectations for fit and function. I like a bit longer finger length and these gloves fit that criteria very nicely. They are very comfortable and during the last series of high 90s(F) temps they allowed for sufficient air flow for cooling.
I also like the extra lengh over the shorter sleeve gloves.
They also have a different look than regular gloves with protectiondesign.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been using various base wear from my running and outdoor collections. The oxygen shirt and pants are equal to my other gear but has been a bit better with air flow under my Defender jacket and pants up to temps in the 90s.
I've been using mine during the summer heat and it has been very good at keeping airflow and cooling.
Very satisfied with the product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

My first and only use of my recently purchased Shoei Neotec was on a 1000 mile Saddlesore ride. My comments and observations are solely based on this one ride (albeit a 20 hour ride). I hadn’t worn the helmet for more than about 20 minutes from the time I took it out of the box to the beginning of the ride but I found the helmet felt as good after 20 hours as it did after 20 minutes.
Two features of the helmet really surprised me.
First, I found the integrated sun visor was all I needed even when the sun is really intense. I normally wear sunglasses even with a darken helmet visor. With sunglasses on I typically have some challenges clearly seeing the GPS screen mounted below my line of sight. With the integrated sun visor a small section at the lower edge that allows a non-tinted view of my GPS screen.
Second, the top vent allows a huge amount of air flow. During the ride the temperature ranged from 23F to 68F. At the low temperature the helmet never got drafty with all the vents closed and during the warmer times even at the first setting of the top vent the air was more than adequate. I’ll be curious to see how the helmet fairs with the high temperatures experienced this past summer (100F plus routinely) but it should be very livable.
Another feature that I’m neutral about is the cheek pads. They are snug against my cheeks and it is impossible to chew anything without biting the inside of my cheek…as I found out. However, the cheek pads enhance the fit of the helmet and are not a big issue.
Despite cross winds of 20-30mph for much of the ride the helmet never got overly heavy feeling nor did my neck get tired from the sideways wind buffeting.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

Upgraded the standard protection on my Revit Defender. Fit perfectly and is very comfortable. I found the new back protector to provide a extra bit of back support on long rides. While it does add a bit of extra weight it is not noticeable when wearing the jacket. I like the feeling of additional protection and safety.

REV'IT! Defender GTX Gore-Tex Jacket Make it safer. Make it lighter. Make it stronger. The fifth generation of adventure jackets since the groundbreaking original Cayenne jacket. The Defender GTX sets a new standard in apparel for the adventure and serious touring rider. Every stitch, reinforced. Fabrics which are both lighter and stronger. A new DWR coating prevents water from soaking the outer layer, while the removable GORE-TEX Performance Shell removable membrane ensures the highest level of waterproofing and breathability, guaranteed. Superfabric ceramic panels and SAS-TEC armor protect, while huge vents, large pockets, glove friendly pull-tabs, and a great Exkin Air thermal liner complete the package. Every aspect of the Defender GTX was designed for easier use, and more abuse than the competition, period. This jacket forms a recommended combination with the DEFENDER GTX Pants .

I'm still getting adjusted to the Defender jacket and pants. Having ridden several hundred miles I realize Revit produced this combo to fit better on the bike than standing around. The armor is the right place while seated, the airflow is fine...although the 100degree days are past and I like the pocket locations. I'm still on the fence with the three layer combined jacket since as each layer comes out the jacket gets bigger. I was right on the line between a large and medium and choose a large based on measurements but probably could have gotten by with a medium. I'll put the jacket and pants to the test in a few weeks on a longer ride into cold and rainy sections so that should really test the GoreTex lining.
Yes, I'd recommend this combo.

I have been using the Pinlock system for several weeks now with temps in the 40s. Regular face shields fog up repeatedly but not the Pinlock system. I do find the lights from street lights in the early morning give a star like appearance through the lens. Not terribly distracting just weird.
Glad I made the purchase.
