REVIT Tornado Jacket. Very comfortable. Moves a significant amount of air. The only reason I did not give it a excellent rating for protection is you would definitely want to upgrade to the SAS-TEC Back Protector.

TCX Jupiter 2 Gore-Tex Boots. Bought these boots on a recommendation from REVZILLA customer service. I have a wide foot and these fit great. The only complaint I have is the toe box is so rigid I loose the feel I want from the shifter. But I am getting used to it. All-In-All a great boot and me feet feel protected.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

SAS-TEC Back Protector. I replaced the stock back protector that came in my REVIT Tornado Jacket. The size SC-1/11fits with no modifications to the SAS-TEC Back Protector. Wish it moved a little more air but I feel well protected so not a problem.

Schuberth C3 Helmet. Exellent helmet. Pricey buy whats your head worth? Very quiet considering it a flip up. I compared this to a Arai RX-Q and the Schuberth C3 was much quieter. Very light and aerodynamic. I am very pleased with this helmet and would recommend it.

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Front Tire The new Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact allows the rider to keep everything under control. The tire follows the riders instincts with a sublime blend of precise and effortless handing. The wet weather handling of motorcycle tires, and especially the braking performance in wet conditions, is becoming an increasingly important feature demanded by the sport-touring rider. This rider requirement occurs especially if it rains suddenly and a high level of security is needed. Metzeler designed the Z8 with the demands of modern sport riders in mind. Features Multi Zone Tension technology, new updated tread profiles and functional tread pattern place the Z8 Roadtec Interact at the top of the sport touring tire class M-Spec and O-Spec tires feature a bi-compound design 8 wider final footprint area than its predecessor due to the variation of steel belt tensions and a strategically placed tread pattern which optimizes pressures in the footprint area 0 Steel Radial technology MAW (Metzeler Advanced Winding) technology The profile shape, inspired by the Greek letter Pi, maximizes the flexibility of the profile, thus ensuring an optimum tire footprint under in all conditions The 3-zone-tension Interact Technology gives outstanding mileage and sporty cornering grip FCM (Fine Carbon Mix) High Silica compound with Nano particles ensures performance and safety in all weather conditions Innovative tread pattern, a widened and more elliptical footprint and a host of wear-resistant technologies not normally seen in motorcycle tires give the Roadtec Z8 Interact its best-in-segment mileage and optimal wet performance throughout the tires life New patented tread pattern with strategically placed longitudinal central grooves provide ideal drainage for more than 3/4 of all lean angles in the wet. The remaining tread grooves work to add tread flexibility, extending the footprint for stability in the dry Updated design improves wear regularity which gives riders the benefit of a consistent riding performance across the tires entire life E Spec tire is OE on Honda NC700X (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact . Very, very pleased with this tire. I replaced front and rear Continental ContiMotion with these Metzelers. The Contis had poor grip and front tire vibration issues at 90+. The Z8's are vibration free and stick like glue. They instill total confidence in the corners. Fantastic wet and dry performance. Would definitely buy these again.
