Alpinestars Supertech-R Vented Boots Alpinestars Supertech R boot is the newest high performance/racing boot, constructed with hi-tech micro-fiber and designed to meet light weight and performance requirements in top level racing. The front flex area is constructed with a soft TPU mesh with shaped reliefs for abrasion resistance and natural forward and back movements. Flexible accordion synthetic leather at Achilles allows natural movement. Top gaiter follows leg contour and is made of flexible high-grade synthetic leather reinforced with rubber for maintaining shape. Full length micro-fiber panel on inner side of the boot provides a smooth surface for excellent grip and feel against the bike and protects from abrasion and heat. A lightweight rubber compound sole offers excellent grip and feel and allows for natural flex as the rider changes position and pressure on the foot-peg. Strategically positioned ventilation in heel and shin TPU, and soft TPU mesh on forefoot guides air through the boot. The separate inner boot works with outer boot to form a protective system and external TPU shin protection wraps around to outer calf and is engineered to spread and dissipate impact energy across the entire surface while remaining compact. Clip-on toe-slider provides excellent feedback and protects the outer toe box structure from abrasion. (Upgradeable to a magnesium slider). Replaceable TPU heel plate slider protects from impact and reduces friction in the event of an off. Outside entry/exit has stretch accordion panel for a close fit and ease of entrance and removal. Bio-mechanical ankle bracing boot has double hinged inner and outer torsion bars to progressively absorb flex and rotation stress on the ankle and reduce pressure and hyper extension injury to lower leg joints. Inner ankle brace constructed with fiberglass charged polyamide and ergonomically designed closed cell padding for protection and comfort. Features Extremely protective, flexible and comfortable with excellent aerodynamics Vented sections promote airflow into the boot Flexible, lightweight toe shifter allows feel for changing gears Zip mounted on accordion stretch panel gives easy closure with excellent fit Velcro tab lock the zip pull closed, keeping it flat and secure Micro adjustable ratchet top closure stows tab end inside calf TPU Polyamide compound moldings around foot bed provide impact protection Removable anatomic footbed is sculpted for precision fit SUPERTECH R is CE certified

Just wrapped up round 1 of AFM racing and I honestly am disappointed with the plastic toe sliders. I consciously kept my toes up as much as I could - I'm not perfect mind you, but the plastic toe sliders are just no bueno. They basically melted and guess what's right beneath that? The boots themselves. The only thing left in the end that separated my socks from asphalt were the inner booties which were almost melted through as well. A bit annoyed as these are incredibly expensive boots. :/
No, I do not recommend this product.

Armour Bodies Bodywork Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R / ZX-636 Armour Bodies bodywork has award-winning fit and finish that took the industry by storm when Armour Bodies scored among the leaders in every single category in the Roadracing World bodywork comparison. This bodywork was rated to have exceptional fit, the highest durability and was #1 in surface finish and flexibility. Armour Bodies is top quality bodywork that is made with unique resin derived from the Kayak racing industry, giving it the ability to withstand the rigors of the racetrack. We use only large sheets of fiberglass with minimal use of mill fiber - giving the part the best possible structural integrity. Each part is then hand sanded, individually fit together and finished in a high quality primer that is ready for paint after a light scuff. This bodywork will save you time and money every step of the way. The labor we put into the finish can save over 100 in prep time over other brands, as your painter will only have to give the bodywork a scuff before painting. The toughness of our large sheet fiberglass design together with our unique resin can help keep you on track after a fall - many riders are done for the day after cheap bodywork is left in shambles on the side of the track. Finally, our resin is fully compatible with commonly available fiberglass repair kits, giving your repairs much more strength and reducing the likelihood for the delamination common in repairs of other premium bodywork brands.

I did a lot of research before buying; the debate came down to SharkSkinz vs Armour Bodies, and in the end, I felt the pricepoint of the Armour Bodies and high quality build of it's materials made more sense.
Installation was easy. Start from top to bottom and drill where necessary to line things up. Buy yourself a set of DZU Fasteners (Revzilla carries them) to make detaching the bodywork even faster!
My painter loved the Armour Bodies primer. The paint came out incredible - I was very happy with how it all fit together.
I had the "opportunity" to crash test the set. I crashed at Turn 8 of Thunderhill in California, the fastest turn at the track. It was a lowside that became a barrel roll when the clipon dug into the mud and flipped the bike. Surprisingly, the top fairing and front fender sustained nearly no damage. The belly pan had major scratches and sustained a break about an inch long where a bolt held it to the frame. The tail suffered the bulk of the damage having cracked in a few places.
All in all, I'm happy with the way the fairings held up in the crash - I would recommend the set if your budget allows it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I use it in the brisk Northern California (SF Bay Area) winter. Commute almost daily on my bike and use this jacket to stay dry and warm. The construction is high quality and attention to detail is apparent. Keep it up Rev'it! It was also delivered the same week that I ordered it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was reluctant to drop $100 on a faceshield...but bit anyway after reading some awesome reviews.
This thing works! It's so convenient to have only one faceshield that does the job whether it's night or day. Like everyone else that reviewed it, you really don't even notice the shading when the sun is brighter. It is well constructed and the RS-1 has the EASIEST shield changing mechanism. It's mindblowing!
If you get a Bell helmet that's compatible - you NEED this shield!

I was looking for a replacement for my RF-1100. Searched everywhere online and saw all the rave reviews for the RS-1. Right off the bat, the RS-1 is made with exceptionally comfortable materials. The microfiber feels great against your skin and the fit is very snug. You feel like you're in a ball of softness. The graphic is done very well. The magnetized strap is actually really cool to have. Everything works the way it should and the quality is topnotch! This thing is $100 cheaper than the RF-1100 to boot!
I'm in the process of switching all my buddies over to Bell, starting with the RS-1!
