Very comfortable and every bit as protective as any roost protector I've seen. Light weight, and you barely notice you're wearing anything. Quality of build is very good also. I'd buy another one should I need it and or trust the next product they produce will be satisfying.

If you wear an XL in most gloves you'll need a XXL in this glove for sure.

The leather is fantastically soft, and interior quite comfortable. finger length is closer to normal than most gloves. I am somewhat hesitant to lump this into a race level glove as it lacks substantial hard part protection but it seems ample enough for track use and certainly comparable to any glove in its price point on that account.

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bells exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

The RS-1 gives far pricier options a solid run for their money...

The RS-1 is easily the quietest helmet I've worn in a long while. It has exceptional comfort as well as ventilation while maintaining a very low noise. Aerodynamics are very good and the helmet actually feels like it is lighter than it is likely partially as result of the construction. Ear void spaces are a welcome addition to the interior construction giving additional comfort while not creating wind pockets. The field of view in a neutral or semi-tuck position is fantastic with exceptional lateral view. Full race tuck will leave you wishing for a higher brow cut, but for the price you may be willing to deal with it. Overall fantastic buy and well done product by a ever strengthening Bell.

The TCX-S Race boot offer reasonable protection and motion limits for a racing boot. Not quite as limiting as an Alpinestars SMX Plus, more limiting than lower line Sidi's. Comfort is very good and the sizing is pretty spot on. I wear an 11.5 shoe and the 45 fit perfect. Ample toe box. The lateral motion limits are are good, where the extension and flexion limits provide a greater range of motion than say the SMX Plus. I personally have great difficulty with ankle fit in the SMX Plus and the TCX-S Race was a better fit. The soles are very grippy, but just a little thin, more comparable to a Sidi sole but not cut narrow like the Sidi's. Overall a great buy for a medium price point boot.

Light weight helmet with very good shell construction and graphic quality. Ample room for goggles.
These helmets size very small. I am a Large for Shark, XL for KBC and I fit to the MSR at a Medium.
The padding is low density and leaves something to be desired so far as potential soft tissue discomfort in a true head strike. The chin strap has a loop snap that creates some cumbersome issues with adjustment, but are certainly not cause for concern.
Overall MSR has created a very decent lid with good quality construction at a reasonable mid-grade price point.
Yes, I recommend this product.
