I would rate this as an average helmet, nothing too fancy, but definitely a step up from the "entry level" helmets. The liner is nice, pretty comfortable around the face, but lacks padding for the top portion of the head. The helmet allows for good airflow through the upper vents, but of course, this is at the expense of noise. The helmet is rather quiet with the vents closed, however.
I would say the fit is intermediate-round oval. I get pressure points on both the front and back of my head after about 20 minutes in the helmet.
Styling and graphics are pretty cool. This helmet has a very aggressive look to it, which makes it stand out. Parts do not feel as solid compared to those on my Shoei, however they don't feel cheap either.
All in all, its a good mid-range helmet that packs wonderful styling, with good features, and a great price. Would recommend.

I have owned these pants for about 3 weeks now, and use them for spirited sport riding, not the track. The very first thing I noticed about these pants was the airflow through the perforations. They flow a good amount of air, and are easy to remain cool in on 80 degree days. I imagine they, like all other gear, would be somewhat warm once the temperatures get up to the 90+ range, but that is not a flaw, nothing to be done there.
I have been wearing "riding jeans" for the past 2 years, and I feel very safe wearing these pants compared to jeans. They are thick, heavy, and sturdy feeling. The knee and shin armor is solid and seems like it would hold up as designed in a crash scenario. The hip pads and tail bone pads are very thin, but I suppose they are better than nothing.
I am 5'9" 145 lbs (quite skinny), and I ordered a size small. They are just a bit big for me in the thigh and waist area, so I wish they would have had one size smaller.
Overall, the protection in these pants feels great. They are comfortable, they seem to be put together very nicely, they don't constrict any leg motion on or off the bike, and provide good ventilation. For $200, I would recommend these pants to everyone.
