Pro:
Excellent ventilation
Durable, survived a 50mph slide on road and gravel
removable liner and multiple pockets.
Con:
Without the liner it fits large and it is not very adjustable. I bought a 2XL... next time I would buy a XL TALL. (6'2", 220lbs normal build)
Armor seems thin, especially on the spine,

This is my second helmet, after a Nolan Trilogy. Worn about 200 miles so far.
Good: Solid, well built, not heavy, good ventilation
Not as good: Some whistling around the seals. I understand from other riders that that deminishes with wear, but not yet. I wish the snap for the strap slack was a magnet instead like on at least one other brand.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves - 2011 version With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

Comfortable and true to fit. Good airflow for summer riding. I have not needed the protection, but the knuckleguards and leather seem sturdy. I have worn them for about 5000 miles now and they are still in good shape.
I have two small complaints:
1) The velcro tab around the wrist could be longer... someone with thick wrists may not like them.
2) the mesh on the fingers gets fuzzy fast after touching velcro.

The installation took a few hours, but other than space being a litle snug in the bike, it was relatively straightforward even for a novice like me. The only con is that I dont like the vampire clip that is used to splice into the wiring. I may redo that with a better splice.
The bike (Honda 919) now delivers power more smoothly and responsively. It also lays the groundwork for slip on exhaust this winter.
There is excellent support from both the manufacturer and various bike forums.
Yes, I recommend this product.
