Bell MX-9 ADV Helmet - Solid Born from Bell's extensive and legendary experience, the Bell MX-9 Helmet blends the best of their dirt and street knowledge into a feature packed middleweight ADV helmet. Equally at home on the street as it is in the dirt, the MX-9 panders to those riders who are out there pushing boundaries and not stopping when the road ends and the trail begins. The lightweight polycarbonate shell comes in three different sizes, mitigating bulk and providing a more comfortable fit. Bell's velocity-flow ventilation system keeps air flowing, forcing fresh air in and hot moist air out, while the removable and washable liner and cheek pads ensures you can keep sweat and bacteria build up at bay. The MX-9 ADV helmet can also transform into a more streetable helmet by removing the peak visor. Included side pods replace the visor where it mounts to the helmet, giving you sleek top-gun styling. When you hit the dirt and need the added protection of a pair of goggles, simply flip up the shield and throw 'em on. The MX-9 is designed to work with any dirt goggle out there. Truly a go-anywhere, do-anything helmet, the Bell MX-9 Adventure helmet fills a much needed gap in the market and is perfect for pros and beginners alike. Features Lightweight polycarbonate shell 3 shell sizes SM XS and SM Helmets MD MD and LG Helmets LG XL and 2XL Helmets Integrated face shield Velocity-flow ventilation system for cooling and comfort Moisture wicking, removable/washable air channeled comfort liner EPS-lined chin bar Adjustable mouth vent Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty DOT and ECE certified Note Helmet ships with clear face shield

I had an Arai XD-4 but just didn't like the fit. And I was looking for a good, all round trail/adventure helmet to replace it. I have been impressed with Bell helmets in the past and, after reading the reviews here, and knowing Revzilla's great return policy, I selected the MX-9 Adventure in white.
Upon delivery it exceeded my expectation for this price category. The fit and finish, while not up to Arai's standards, were beyond the price point norms. I was most impressed with how easy it is to remove the face shield and bill. So simple and so effective.
The reviews said the helmet ran small so I moved up a size to the Large. I am glad I did. This helmet was very comfortable right out of the box. While not the quietest helmet it not overly noisy. There is ample space in the helmet by your ears so wearing hearing protection/ear buds are comfortable without pressure.
It also flows a lot of air and I really didn't notice much difference riding at trail speeds with the shield up or down. It is slightly heavier than the Arai but not uncomfortable. But since it's $360 cheaper I can live with the slight weight increase.
All in all I am very satisfied with my purchase and, as always, with Revzilla's shipping speed. I highly recommend this helmet.

Icon Hypersport Pants The Icon Hypersport Pants are the elite accompaniment to the Hypersport jacket. Like the entire Icon Hypersport series, the Hypersport Pants are constructed of multiple materials, each chosen for their unique performance properties. The main chassis is comprised of 1.2-1.4mm TrackSpec leather, stretch Cordura, and nylon lowers. This construction yields an incredibly durable pant while keeping overall weight to a minimum. TPU knee plates and D3O knee impact protectors are coupled with integrated knee and lumbar flex zones for excellent onbike mobility. Strategic areas of laser-perforated venting and TechMesh paneling help keep everything cool. The tailored fit (no diaper butt here) is accompanied by a ratchet fly closure and dual waist adjustment straps. The Hypersport Pants include an internal waist zipper that connects to either the Hypersport Prime jacket or the Hypersport jacket. Features Icon attack fit 1.2-1.4mm TrackSpec leather chassis D30 impact protectors in knees TPU Injected knee plates Integrated flex zones TechMesh panels Waist zipper connects to Icon Hypersport series jackets Overboot fitment Waist adjusters

These pants looked great out of the box. I was looking for a hybrid leather/mesh pant to wear when riding around town. On paper these looked perfect. I tried them on and they fit so size. Then I realized they had no pockets. This disqualified them for my use. I was looking for something to wear while running errands. I have no place to carry a wallet. Bummer.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Givi E370 Monolock Topcase The E370 enriches and widens the Monolock range. The E370 offers a capacity of 37 liters, enough space to hold a helmet and additional luggage and is suitable for customers that do not have the big capacity requirements. Like the E470, this model has the advantage of a removable cover on the top shell, an aesthetic characteristic that further increases its ability to compliment the design of the scooter. Features Capacity 39 liters Dimensions 18.8 L x 16.3 W x 12.7 H Max load 6.6 lbs Empty weight 8.8 lbs All Monolock cases include universal plates

I just bought a hi-vis yellow model. What a nice product. It has a built-in sun shade and retractable face shield. The air flow is adequate and it is very comfortable. The visibility to the sides is the same as not wearing a helmet. The neon yellow color stands out and I am not lost in the traffic background. I am trying to buy a second on for my passengers - but the yellow colors are all sold out. There must be a lot of people who like this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
