I gave these an excellent rating because they are well made, sturdy and offer a high level of protection for casual, around town street riding. You can also purchase removable pads for the knees and hip area. Fairly comfortable also and true to size.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've worn it on every ride since I purchased it. It's great for the South Florida heat and humidity and on the rare occasion we get a little cool air. The air flows nicely through it and over my shoulders which reduces the wind resistance. It's comfortable and easy to adjust. I'm mostly riding a Duc Monster and 848 with the vest.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These A* socks fit well and are very comfortable. They flow a good amount of air and keep my feet dry in full length race boots in the South Florida heat. I also think they are pretty stylish. My only concern is that after a couple of wears and washes they look pretty worn already which is why I gave them two stars for protection and durability. However, overall I would order another pair because the cost is minimal. I think I ordered the large size and I where a size 11 U.S. sneaker/boot.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This product fits great under my A* trigger leather suit. It's comfortable and allows me to move freely in the suit while being protected, which were my two main criteria. I switched over from one of the Knox full back protectors because my movement on the bike during track days and races with the Knox was too rigid and restricted. Big improvement overall and I'm happy with the purchase. I where a 56 euro suit and ordered the large back protector which fits well. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I have not crash tested nor am I planning too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm very happy with this glove. I wanted a light everyday riding glove with decent protection for a good price and this glove fits the bill. The knuckle protection is great and the glove is still very comfortable because it is designed in a way that moves very well with your hand. There is no tugging and/or pulling at all. Easy on and off and flows good air to keep hands comfortable. The glove fits true to size and I would definitely recommend this product.

 Icon Airframe Carbon Lifeform Helmet
Icon Airframe Carbon Lifeform Helmet
Carbon - the fundamental structure of all life - incredibly light, unbelievably strong. We've used this fundamental element to produce our lightest helmet ever. The shell is formed with Icon's unique molding technology which allows for exact placement of carbon material. This controlled placement provides reinforced structure without adding weight. Indeed, weighing in at a mere 1450 grams, the Carbon lifeform is a prime example of the most modern of helmet manufacturing technologies. Of course the weight savings benefit is matched by the vastly superior venting system use in the Airframe. Where the other manufacturers imply venting, the Airframe truly delivers. If you have the means we highly recommend acquiring this truly unique Airframe. You will not be disappointed. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (Japan) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased in that country. Carbon fiber shell 1450 grams in size medium (+/- 50 grams) Wind tunnel tested and refined Imported

Comfortable and Lightweight

I usually wear a large helmet and I wear the XL in this one because the large was just a bit to snug for me. However, if you like your helmets to fit nice and tight then it may be true to size for you. I like everything about this helmet. It looks sharp in the white, it's lightweight, it keeps me cool, it flows a ton of air and it's very comfortable. You do get quite a bit of noise because of the air flow so I wear ear plugs but I don't mind as long as I get the air. I've changed the shield on it a couple of times and the change system has worked well. Also, it comes with a nice helmet bag. I would definitely buy again.
Pros Comfortable, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very Comfortable Boot

This is my first race boot and they are much more comfortable than I imagined. I was at a track day event this past weekend and had them on for 4+ hours with no problem. Although I thought they were a bit snug at first they offer very good ankle stability so being snug in that area is a good thing for protection. My foot is a size 10.5 and that's what I ordered so they fit true to size. They seem to vent well and are fairly comfortable to walk around and fit well under a pair of jeans or over a race suit. Great value I think and would definitely recommend these boots.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable, Fashionable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.

Comfortable Gloves with Great Palm Padding

I ordered these gloves in a large which is my normal glove size and although they fit a little snug compared to others, they still fit well. These gloves were delivered just in time for track day and I was a bit concerned about breaking them in out on the track. However, they performed great! It's a good thing when you don't even notice there is a glove on your hand because they're so comfortable. The padding on the palm side of the glove is great! Overall great product.
Props to the guys at Revzilla for recommending this glove when I asked for something with good padding in the palm area. Good value as well. Thanks guys.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged, Great Value

This is a follow-up to my 3/14/11 review. In that review I stated the initial change of the shield took me about 15 minutes. I've done it a few times since then and the change time is down to 2-4 minutes. Would definitely buy again and recommend to others.
Pros Great Value, Fashionable, Practical

I bought this shield for my white Icon Airframe Carbon Helmet and it looks great. The visibility is great and it does its job by toning the sunlight down here in sunny South Florida. Give yourself some time and be patient when installing the shield because it can be a bit frustrating. Took me about 15 mins to install.
Pros Practical, Fashionable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
