I always get Dainese for a number of reasons. Safety, fit, comfort, reliability, quality, etc. I buy a new suit every year and saw the new colors of the Laguna Seca Pro and just had to have it. This suit feels great on the track or on the twisties in the mountains.

So, I purchased a couple of these boots to accompany my (Dainese) suits. I couldn't be happier with the fit and style of these boots. I could technically wear these with my jeans on the street but, thats why God invented Dainese Dyno street boots. The price is justifiable in my opinion. Hey, that's the price you pay to where the same boots Rossi helped create and trusts. Ciao!

Arai Corsair V Solid Helmet The Arai Corsair V Solid Color Helmet proves again that Arais main focus is the experienced rider who knows what a real helmet should do and have. It doesnt fling fashion at you it advanced the art of building better helmets for riders. Its improvements and innovations reach down to the smallest details. Why Partly obsession. Partly because Arai believes every part of a helmet is interrelated in both design and function. We dont believe in change for the sake of change, fad, or marketing shock value. Features Newly designed shell with Hyper-Ridge around the bottom enhances shell strength while providing a larger bottom opening Larger bottom opening promotes ease of putting on and taking off the helmet Peripheral belting across the forehead area of the shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining flexibility, low weight and shell size Larger upper vent tabs make operating the vents easier even with thick winter gloves New Arai SAI shield with Super AdSis shield system New SAI shield is 5mm longer in each side and provides a wider field of view New SAI shield and base plates are exclusive to Corsair V helmets Latest generation of Dry Cool line has a new silver-grey color Rear mounting straps are slightly re-positioned exclusively to the Corsair V Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat Cheek pads have the exclusive Emergency Release Tab feature Newly designed side exhaust cowls exhaust heat as well as add lateral stability at speed Enhanced air inlets of the new DF-9 diffuser increase airflow efficiency Brow vents now duct air into the temple area and out the side vents for maximum cooling Exclusive AirWing provides unprecedented aerodynamic performance with 5 distinct positions DOT approved Snell M2010 Certified

My wife of all people pushed me into spending the additional $ for my birthday this year. I purchased this helmet in frost black. There is nothing on this helmet that doesn't scream badass, quality, safety, and comfort. ARAI truly knows how to make a helmet in every direction. This is probably my 10th helmet in the last few years and this is my top shelf "special" ride and track helmet.

This suit is amazing. At first I was a bit skeptical because in the past I have always had one peice Dainese suits. I decided since it had all the right features at such a wonderful price (for Dainese) I would take the leap and Dainese has NEVER let me down. I truly adore this suit and get compliments all the time. 3-D bubble liner is the business and everything fits me PERFECT (5'9 150lbs size 38). If you are thinking about this suit and have the money, GO FOR IT!! I also, recently purchased another pair of Dainese full metal pro gloves that match the exact colors of my suit. I tried to post photos but the site isn't allowing it for some reason. CIAO!

I purchased this some time ago and I am now writing a review after long term use. This has been a rather high quality shield. The tint (blue) is dark enough that I don't REALLY need sunglasses under the helmet to see while I ride. The adjustability and tightness against the helmet provides a quiet and dry eyed ride. no air or water gets through where it shouldn't. Clean up is relatively easy though I don't do particularly long trips on my superbike so bugs aren't really a problem. Improves the look of the helmet GREATLY!

I have never felt more protected than I am today with my new Thorax Wave Pro. As long as you get the correct size it will give you great coverage over your ribs, sternum, clavicle, scapulas, coccyx (tail bone which is EASILY broken), and spinal area. ALL vital areas that are critical to protect. Dainese has done a magnificent job building this unit, utilizing only the finest in the latest light weight and hardened materials. I wouldn't trust another manufacturer to protect me better than Dainese. Who cares what your friends are or are not wearing while they ride? Cover yourself! Ask doctors about the most common injuries they see from motorcycle wrecks (that survive). Great breathability, too! Very light and as unobtrusive as possible.

I really apprectiate having these jeans for days I just don't feel like wearing my expensive leather pants. These offer what seems to be a terrific amount of abrasion resistance with the Kevlar lining. I wear Forcefield protective pants under them for impact resistance and that offers the perfect mix of street riding protection.
I got these at a great price. Though, I can't compare them to other jeans in the same category since this is my first pair like it. The sizing is just like everyone else says. ex: I am a 31 waist = size 32 = PERFECT. They are a bit long but that is so you can bend your legs and get the correct amount of coverage while you ride.

Rigid and soft in all the right spots. like all high quality leather boots you must wear them in a bit. I can wear them anywhere and even get a few style compliments on a daily basis. You can barely tell they are a motorcycle boot at first glance.
I have tried other brands in this style boot and they havent held up as well. These boots need to be the standard for their category.
Pros Fashionable, Rugged, Comfortable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.

All the things RevZilla says in the video about them is true. I chose these well over the Titan Held golves for a number of reasons.
Dainese never fails to ignite tingly senses in me whenever I use their gear. Light weight, strong as possible, comfort is never an issue as long as you get the proper size. With few exceptions Dainese is the only leather gear I would ever get. I have tried many other brands and I have finally found providence with Dainese
Anyway. Back to the gloves. You will get what you pay for all the way. Great for the track, great for street. I use them for both. If it is good enough for VR it is good enough for me!
When you invest in Dainese you invest in both your image and your safety. I take both very seriously.
Only down side is you don't want to damage them. Too pretty and too expensive to do so.
Pros Comfortable, Fashionable, Great Value, Rugged
Cons You don't want to damage them
