 TCX Infinity GTX Boots
TCX Infinity GTX Boots
TCX Infinity GTX Boots As close to perfect as it gets, the TCX Infinity Gore-Tex Boot has been a staple of the TCX line up for years. This boot was inspired by famed TCX riders Cyril Despres and Marc Coma for adventure touring. A full grain leather upper with Gore-Tex lining provide unrivaled comfort and durability. This boot has been an editor pick since the beginning. Comfort Fit System (CFS) TCX products in the Touring Range are manufactured using techniques that ensure a high quality fit the Comfort Fit System (form moulding), through which the upper is shaped on a mould that reproduces the anatomy of the human foot. The Touring Range is therefore extremely versatile and high quality, with high tech products that can also be used casually and in the city. Full Grain Leather The uppers of the TCX Touring range are made using full grain leather. This is the most valuable part of the leather, which is specially treated and rendered waterproof. The result is an upper in a natural material that gives exceptional performance in terms of protection from atmospheric agents, breathability and fit. Gore-Tex Membrane The application of the Gore-tex membrane offers an optimal combination of breathability and insulation, granting the feet to stay warm and dry, never sweaty even in extreme conditions. The durable waterproof protection stops moisture from seeping in. Technical Details Upper full grain leather Lining GORE-TEX membrane Protections malleolous protection, shift pad, leather coated shin plate and inner thermo contoured protection Color Black Closure 2 polyurethane adjustable buckles Sole touring sole, oil and petrol resistant with specific grip area Sizes EU 38-48 US 7-13 CE Certified Note Boots may not feature the leather patch on the outside of the toe box.

I wear a size 11 but at the time I bought this boot (mid 2013), the sizing was 45/46, which is on the big side for me so i wear a larger sock. Front to back, they fit pretty true to size but they're huge in the upper foot area with just too much extra material for my less bulky feet. I'm taken a few falls and the boots can certainly take a beating, but there's not enough support for me in the outer ankle area. Some of the weight of my GS was on my foot and the material is very soft so it just pushes in on the foot. I'm going with more of a motocross boot (EVO 1.1 Pro) this time for the sole (no pun intended) reason of having more foot protection.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety. An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoeis stainless steel 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation. From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Ventilation and Aerodynamics Vortex generator vents pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar Interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I bought the Neotec because I wanted a modular helmet, and one on which I could mount my Sena SMH10 communication system. The mount was pretty simple and works great. I was in between a medium and a large and bought the large. I usually wear a buff underneath, which helps give it a perfect fit. Took it on an 800 mile roundtrip and had no issues. The modular face and sliding sunshade make it my ideal helmet. There's also more cushion than I've ever had in a helmet. My other helmet is an Arai XD4, which I still use for adventures that include a lot of off-road riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag seems custom made for the space where the pinion seat mounts, when that seat is removed on my GS, fitting in perfectly. That's how I use the bag. Very large when expanded. No complaints other than would love for it to be waterproof w/o having to use the raincover. In the photo, my seat is off the bike as I'm charging the battery.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
A removable lining is not unique. But a removable lining that looks like a stylish jacket on its own is. The DRAGON offers that and more as a true example of a four-season textile jacket, with all the advantages of the REVIT! 3-layer integrated system. This makes it perfect for a variety of climates and weather conditions and a great 4-season jacket choice. This jacket will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Pant but feature-wise the Dragon Jacket matches up most closely with the REV'IT Sand Pants. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PWRshell 750D, Cordura 1000D, high density polyester 600D, Lorica Insulation detachable thermal liner Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 65 polyamide, 34 polyester, 1 other fibres lining 100 polyester thermal liner 100 polyamide (insulation 100 polyester) membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating) Protection Knox CE protection at shoulders and elbows, EVA foam at back Visibility reflection at back and upper arms ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability flexisnap XL, adjustment straps at waist and upper arms, adjustment tabs at under arms and cuffs, adjustment drawcord at hips Ventilation VCS I zippers at back, chest and under arms Features comfort collar, short connection zipper, separate wearable hydratex G-liner Pockets stash pockets, membrane storage pocket, hand warmer pockets, inner pockets

It's a great jacket, but I've only used it on a couple trips in dry weather. The only problems I have is the sleeves are shorter than any bike jacket I've ever had for the size so when it's cold or raining, you need a substantial glove that goes up high over your wrist. Other problem is the liner is not the type that you'll want to wear on its own like First Gear or Fieldsheer jackets, which in fact have great liners that can be worn as jackets. When I tour with this jacket, I will need to bring another jacket for off the bike wearing. I was pretty suprised they adverstised it so falsely, especially in comparison to other brands. But overall, the jacket is very cool, looks great and seems like it will be good in temps from 70's down to 20's. I'm 5'10", 170, and went with the medium. It fits perfect except for the arm lenghth. I wear it with the Revit Sand pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.
