Good quality helmet. At low speeds and dirt this thing is great. Higher speeds or in cross winds you will miss your regular full face lid. The peak can whistle and catch a lot of wind on the highway. Not bad with the peak removed. However. Four fragile plastic screws need to be removed and different side plates used when switching back and forth from peak/no peak. Stuff to lose or break....
Mixed if I would buy again. It is more open and better wind flow than a normal helmet. Looks cool...
Yes, I recommend this product.

Recently purchased this jacket after searching high and low for a good textilve jacket. I needed something versatile with built in armor that also has a lot of venting for hot days but will also keep me dry in the rain. This is THE jacket. Excellent fit high quality piece of gear. I've only had it for a week but 'broke it in' on a 1,700 mile trip. The one thing that stood out most is how comfortable it is while riding. You almost don't feel it on you. Very well done!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining. Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Single Flex System upper.

Recently bought this boot. It's comfortable right out of the box.
I'm a sidi 42 in my bicycle shoes and other sidi boots. I'm a 41 in this boot. It's a very large/high volume boot. Comfortable but there is a LOT of room in there.
Just finished a quick 2,000 mile trip to break them in. I would buy them again in a second. I rode through a lot of rain, temps as low as high 20's and some 70 degree days at the end. Performed perfectly, warm and dry.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I received my infinity suit today. It looks nice and it does fit very well and true to it's size. I'm 5'9" 175 and a large fit nicely.
However, it is apparent from the moment you look at and touch it that this suit is not going to last a very long time. VERY thin material and the armor is silly. It may meet and/or exceed "this and that". BUT, it's so minimal that if you crash you had better hope you are in the pads just right. I could easily see the pads not staying put on the knees and shoulders. Compared to the armor in an Aerostitch suit these are about 1/8th as thick. I personally don't see them doing much in an impact situation. Sliding? Maybe.
Pockets. Not sure why they even added pockets. Without gloves the pockets are VERY tough to get into. Also, the chest pocket won't even hold an iphone. I know this isn't make or break for most but that's a relatively small item. It's not deep enough or wide enough, maybe if you really stuff it in... What I'm getting at is ALL of the three pockets are tiny. I put my wallet in a lower one and even that was a squeeze. And there is no access into the lower part of the suit if you were to wear pants underneath. You have to have a few decent pockets to carry things. Man, if you put your ear plugs in any of the pockets you'd have to turn the whole thing upside down to get them out. No way you'd get your hands to the bottom.
The "T" handle zipper on the right leg is, in my opinion, dangerous. You can somewhat keep it hidden/tucked up with the little velcro enclosure but if you forget I could see the T getting caught on things it's not supposed to. Really a terrible design element.
Also, wearing shorts under the suit the zipper on the right leg is not at all comfortable. I didn't even bother getting on my bike with this suit. If that zipper were to rub on you all day it would not be pretty.
It's extremely obvious to me that whomever designed this suit does not ride a motorcycle. Perhaps they don't even know what a motorcycle is.
F minus!!! I will be hard pressed to look at any revit gear from here on out.
No, I do not recommend this product.
