Definitely enjoying this helmet a lot. My judgement may be n bit impaired by my previous helmet being a pace of junk. But this one is a lot of fun thus far. My friend with a bit more experience complained that it is a bit heavy. But all and all a great helmet. Being able to convert to a 3/4 was very useful a few times. It is great to have a full face on the long routes (bugs and cold and every ting). Just as great to be able to open up on a more chilled, "fresh air" cruse.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It is a bit pricy and at first, I was reluctant to buy it. But I'm a bit of a gadget freak and I haven't been disappointed yet. This is a great product, so much better than any similar product Ive ever seen. They defiantly spent some time thinking this trough. If you like to have the edge over your friends like me when it comes to your toys, you will love this.
I must admit that I do not have experience with the cheaper q2 and I'm not sure if it's better value for money.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Did a few trips with my Drayko Drifter Jeans. To be honest I hate the cut. definitely not the best looking pair of jeans I have. But lets be honest, it looks a lot better than the potential scars it can prevent. I also found the stupid cut very comfy when I'm riding.
I'm 6'2 with a tall inseam and the jeans were more than tall enough.
Hopefully I wont get to test the safety feature of the jeans but it is good to know they are there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Had my "Icon Squad 2 Mil Spec Backpack" for 2 weeks now and I'm loving it. As if the backpack was designed for me. Very comfy, roomy, packing space for every thing, overall a great design. I went with the orange one and was very happy to get rid of the high viz vest which made me look and feel like a construction worker.
I am a bit worried about the press studs. It feels like they may rip out. Keeping my fingers crossed.
But over all a good pack.
Yes, I recommend this product.
