I got this to keep my neck from getting cold on those chilly rides in the winter. It does a great job of blocking the wind as well as keeping any air flow from going through the jacket at the neckline. I highly recommend this as the price is pretty low so it's not a huge parting of cash.

I've had these gloves for a few months now. I've worn them on a 4 hour ride recently as well. For just over $100 ($109) they offer a high level of protection seen in most gloves over $150. They fit a little smaller than other gloves I've worn (Dainese, Alpinestars). The leather on the palm side if very soft which adds to the level of comfort.
The only drawbacks I would say are that on me (size medium gloves) the first 3 fingers are a little shorter and the glove is a little tight in between my fingers (the webbing). As noted by other reviewers, the carbon fiber protection on the ring finger is a little uncomfortable as it rests at the knuckle and when you are squeezing in a fist or around the bars it can cause discomfort to your knuckle.
I would have liked to try a large, but I am sure it still would have been too big for my hands.

Michelin Pilot Power Rear Tires You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. Michelin Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12 of the tire's surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike. Features MotoGPderived rubber compound requires minimal warmup time The softest rubber mix in its class for remarkable grip, yet maintains tire performance even at advanced stages of wear Unprecedented lean angles 50.6 degrees in the dry, 41.9 degrees in the wet Rubber mix remains soft even at lower temperatures providing excellent grip from the start of your ride Grooved area that's less than 12 of the tread pattern for phenomenal cornering adhesion These are the best street tires I've ever ridden in my life.

I've had these on my bike for 10,000 miles as of yesterday. I put these on in place of the stock Dunlop tires on my R6. Immediately there was a noticeable grip difference. I got a great deal on these at $200 for the pair.
I don't do any burn-outs so the tread life has been great. In Vegas there aren't a lot of twisty's or sweepers, so the far edge doesn't have as much of a wear, so I am thinking of going with one of the 2 or 3 compound rear tire next.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have the Rossi 08 Replicas. I admit I wanted these because of no other reason than Rossi. When I first looked at these in person at the SF D-Store I was amazed at the internal protection. It has two full frame carbon fiber/kevlar ankle and above protection. You can pull down the boot and see the sophistication involved in creating this boot. I tried on a pair and figured out my size. My wife ordered these for me for my birthday a month later.
I've worn these on a few long rides so I know how they feel. The boots themselves have a nice tight fit to prevent any movement in the event of a fall. The new boots have the inner booty with drawstring, mine do not. I wouldn't recommend walking around for a long duration in them as they are not really that comfortable, but that could just be because I had some thin socks on, a nice thick padded pair of socks might change that.
I definitely feel that the protection is at the highest level, while I don't intend to try that out (these were limited to a few hundred) I know they'd hold up.
The only drawback to the Dainese boots is that they do not have a replaceable sole and they do not offer re-sole services. At $500 you would hope and wish for this, it might be due to how they are made. Maybe they will start to see the need for this in the future.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought a pair of these last summer prior to my annual trip to MotoGP in Laguna Seca. I wanted something that was decent for the hot Las Vegas summers. These breathe a little better than other leather gloves I've had (Alpinestars SP-3) because the material on the top the hand is a fabric and not leather.
The protection is minimal, a little padding and some carbon fiber inserts over the knuckle. For the casual rider these are a nice glove, not a canyon or track glove obviously. At $89 they are a good price point. My next gloves will probably be the Dainese 4-Stroke.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because there are quite a bit of other gloves out there between $70-120 that offer more protective inserts.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I just got these a few weeks ago, great shoe. I had considered the Sidi Streetburners ($250), but at $200 I went with the Dainese Dynos. These shoes offer great protection, much better than most priced around $200. The toe slider is replaceable, thermal plastic all around the back gives a lot of extra protection. The shoes actually breathe pretty well, riding along the you can feel the breeze through the shoe. The quick draw lacing system is nice as they are easy to slide on/off and cinch down. A lot more comfortable than I expected, I also have a pair of Dainese Axial Race (Rossi 08) and those are not the best to walk around in more than a few hundred feet. These I can wear all day at work (at a desk), could probably add a nice insole to build up the arch.
The only thing I wish they offered is resoling in the future. I know some other shoes/boots have replaceable soles.
Yes, I recommend this product.
