 Arai RX-Q Urban Helmet
Arai RX-Q Urban Helmet
Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications 2010 Model

The RX-Q is an awesome helmet. It is very stable at speed both when looking straight and checking over the shoulder. It is also very comfortable and feels very light, like the center of gravity of the helmet is positioned low. There is plenty of ventilation and the noise level is reasonable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These shorts are pretty comfortable and seem to provide a reasonable level of extra protection. I wear them underneath more casual type riding pants. The elastic bands around the waist and legs are grippy and hold the shorts in place nicely. Make sure you get the right size (snug) so the armor stays in place when you move around.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants do not seem very protective. The kevlar panels are very thin. They are a nice pair of jeans but I wouldn't trust my knees/legs to them in a crash. I would recommend wearing stand-alone knee guards if you ride in these.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The light smoke shield is an excellent all-around shield. I find it to be a comfortable tint in all daytime conditions. It is dark enough for very bright days but light enough for overcast days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These knee guards are super comfortable and protective. They have three straps so they stay in place and the knee cup is deep and wraps around the knee. The shin plate is long so you will need to tuck them in to the tops of your boots. I highly recommend these.

These gloves are very comfortable and seem reasonably protective. The 3/4 length provides more coverage than a short cuff but less than a full gauntlet. I would recommend these gloves for street riding.

These are a great pair of pants for street riding. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a pair of leather pants without knee sliders. They have excellent knee/shin protection and are pretty comfortable considering the level of protection. The waist zips to my Dainese jacket with no problem.
I am 5'-10" 140 lbs, size 30 waist, size 31 jeans. The size 46 in these pants fits great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've used this on a white jacket and a black pair of pants with no problems. It cleans and conditions the leather. Make sure you follow the directions.

 Dainese Steel Core Carbon Gloves
Dainese Steel Core Carbon Gloves
Dainese Steel Core Carbon Gloves Continuous innovation and experience on racetracks around the world have lead to the development of this racing glove. Excellent ergonomics are matched with equivalent safety levels against abrasion and tearing thanks to the Kevlar jersey, construction with single panel of leather for the protector of the stitching on the little finger side of hand, and the reinforced palm. Protection against shock is provided thanks to the new steel inserts faced with extraordinarily stiff carbon, little finger construction reinforced with internal inserts and Distortion Control, inserts on the knuckles, the back of the hand, the palm, and head of the ulna. Composite inserts in stainless steel faced with carbon fiber on the knuckles and the back of the hand Inserts in thermoplastic resin on the knuckles and the back of the hand Polyethylene inserts at the base of the fingers Inserts in thermoplastic polyurethane on the outside of the little finger, the top of the ulna bone and the palm Distortion control on the little finger Kevlar-jersey (brand-name fiber) Cowhide leather Stone PU Spandex fabric Reinforced palm One single leather panel to the size of the hand Tightening strap Adjustable cuff strap Inserts in elasticated fabric Elasticated inserts Pre-curved fingers Perforated cuff Perforation on the inner side of finger Soft inserts

These gloves are awesome. They feel very protective with plenty of reinforcement in critical areas but they are still very comfortable and have excellent feel when operating the controls. A note on sizing - I wore a Medium in Alpinestars but I wear a Small in these.

These boots are very comfortable and feel protective. They feel supportive but do not force your ankles into a super aggressive riding position. The materials and construction seem to be of high quality. I have no problems tucking the bottoms of my knee/shin guards into the tops of the boots. Overall, these seem like excellent boots for everyday street use. I followed the sizing guidelines provided by Revzilla and the size 44 fits my size 10 foot well.
Yes, I recommend this product.
