GMax GM54S Modular Helmet - Solid The modular design allows the flip-jaw to rotate further back on the crown of the helmet. The further rotation of the flip-jaw not only increases the user's line-of-sight when in the raised position, but it also lessens the user's fatigue by maintaining an even distribution of weight across the helmet. Features New inner flip tint sun lens Inner flip shield is easily raised of lowered with a lever located on the exterior of the helmet Distortion free clear single lens shield New integrated multi-function red L.E.D rear light Optional rear brake light kit available One hand easy to use chin bar push to open mechanism Lightweight D.O.T approved thermo-plastic alloy shell Excellent shield sealing reduces unwanted air and noise GMAX D.E.V.S adjustable dual exhaust venting system, top, side, and rear venting reduces fogging and sweating by allowing hot air to escape from the mouth area and top of head Adjustable chin vent directs air upward across the inside of the shield to help reduce or eliminate fogging Large eye port for improved range of vision Coolmax comfort liner and cheek pads move the moisture away from your body and the fabric dries quickly. The added performance keeps you dry and comfortable Removable/washable interior and adjustable cheek pads allow for more comfortable sizing Deluxe ear pockets for better fit and comfort Built in speaker pockets for communication systems Soft padded chin strap Painted shell with high quality clear coat finish Soft helmet bag included

i recently had to replace my much loved arai corsair but did not want to spend $700 on a helmet. i also decided i wanted a modular this time around. i was looking into a shuberth and a shoe and then happened upon this helmet with all the same features for a fraction of the price. i wear a small in the aria so i ordered a small in the gmax but upon receiving it it was too large and moved around on my head too much. i sent it back for an extra small and it fit well.
the modular mechanism takes a little getting used to, u push the button up to lift the modular unit instead of pulling it down, which is different from all the others. its definitely nice that the unit has metal locking units instead of plastic ones on some other modulars have.
the internal sunvisor is awesome to have, i am very happy that i no longer have to mess with sunglasses in my helmet. i have noticed things look a little bit fuzzy with the sunvisor and the regular visor down at the same time, nothing dangerous but just a little noticeable.
airflow in this helmet is not nearly as good as it was in my arai but the sunvisor allows me to ride with that down and the regular visor up giving plenty of airflow. there are plenty of air vents on the helmet but with both visors down i can't feel much air moving within the helmet.
the noise level of the gmax is actually about the same as my 5 year old arai at 60-80 mph which was quite surprising for a modular. i don't know what the comparison would have been like if i had spent the $700 on a shuberth but not knowing what i'm missing is ok with me since what i have now is the same as what i had before.
the weight of the helmet is noticeably more than my arai which is a little bit of a bummer but also sort of expected with a lower priced modular unit.
another very nice feature is the LED light on the back of the helmet which has three modes and adds a good bit of extra visibility when riding at night especially.
last nice feature i can think of is the removable and washable internal liner and the ability to switch out cheek pads. my arai didn't give me that ability and obviously gathered some dirt and grime over the past 4 years.
all in all i think this helmet offers a great amount of features and competes very nicely with helmets 3-4x its cost. i would recommend it to anyone.

I use this tire on my BMW R1200GS and it offers me a good balance of on and off-road traction. The tire is a bit louder than a strictly on-road tire but that's to be expected with a beefed up traction pattern. I have gotten about 5000+ miles out of the rear so far and it's still going, altho I will say I'll probably have to replace it soon. The front however is still looking good. Before I had a set of these I had some Metzler Tourances on the bike and while the Shinkos are not as quiet and don't get as much mileage as the Tourances, for a set of tires that is almost half the price they do pretty darn well in my opinion.

This is exactly what a motorcycle boot should be in my opinion. Highly protective, good style (look like regular boots under jeans or motorcycle pants), comfortable enough to walk around in and waterproof. People complain that they're squeaky but they aren't bad at all and it's easily fixed with some mink oil or some wonderbalm from Doc Martin. Squeakiest part was the water gator in the front for me. Overall they feel good on the bike, took a lil getting used to because they're a little stiff and don't offer much feeling for the shifter. Only took about 10 min before they felt natural. Good stability when standing on the pegs. They definitely are on the warm side but wear them with a pair of dry fit socks and they're ok. Fast and easy to get into, the buckles are super easy and they fit true to size. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Bought an XL 2 months ago (I'm 6'3" roughly 195lbs) and returned it because it was a little short in the legs when sitting on the bike and a little tight across the back when in my full adventure riding gear (jacket, back protector and camelback). Got a 2xl and it seems better. Was able to ride in a storm with the suit for about 2 hrs of constant rain and 30+ mph winds and the suit worked great, only thing that got a little wet was my feet cause i didn't have waterproof boots on and my hands.
Not gonna lie, suit is super hot for the summer days but it will keep the rain out, unfortunately you'll still get wet from all the sweat.

bought this product cause of the goretex, the style and the price point. thought i was getting something that would offer some good protection. when i got the boots, the style wasn't what i expected (they were quite narrow with a somewhat pointy toebox) and the protection was no where near what i expected. the ankle support on the outside wasn't very hard and the shin protection was minimal. while i do mostly touring and commuting i wanted more protection than these offer (the boot i'm wearing now offers me the same if not more protection). these will be good boots if you don't mind the giant velcro panel on the inside of each boot and the slightly pointed toe area and don't require a stiff protective boot but rather a comfortable boot to commute in and keep on all day while at work. never had them on the bike so i can't comment on anything but the style and sizing.

REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, perforated EVA foam at hips Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

bought these pants recently and so far i'm quite happy with them. wanted something to offer good protection but had to be very breathable for the hot and humid VA summers. while i haven't had to and don't want to test the protection it seems to be pretty decent. pretty good size hip padding and knee armor that is removable and can be repositioned. i originally bought the all black version but returned them because of sizing and comfort issues. you will really cook in the summer sun in the all black pants. i went down a size and moved to the silver pants and am very happy. much cooler while sitting still in the sun, can really feel the air moving around my lower legs while sitting (not very much airflow on the thighs while sitting). when riding in a standing position the airflow is amazing, almost feels like you're wearing shorts (assuming you're wearing nothing but underwear under them and the liner is out). on my long summer trips ill stand up every couple miles for a minute or two and any sweat that has developed is gone just that quickly because of the airflow....awesome. long inside zipper makes getting in and out a breeze, even getting them over pants and boots. wish the inside zipper on the legs was a two way zip so you could undo it a little at the top to flow more air while sitting . haven't tried the liner yet but i'm sure if its like all other rev'it products i own it'll work awesome.

i've had this jacket for about a year now and have to say i am really happy with my purchase. i ride year round and have found this jacket to be up to the task for all kinds of weather. did a 1000mile trip in 95 degree heat and 90% humidity with a back protector and camelback and was pretty comfortable at speed. close up the vents and put the wind/waterproof liner in for the crisp fall/spring mornings and add the vest in as the temp dips down a bit more. i wear a light thermal windproof jacket under the jacket alone when the temp drops below 35 degrees F for a little extra warmth but layering with the jacket could give the same effects. Leather gives a nice look and presumably good protection. arm vents and mesh front and back panels allow for good flow of air. as mentioned in a previous review, some vent on the lower forearm would be nice but not completely necessary. getting the liners in and out is not hard at all and takes about 30 seconds to a minute. overall great great choice for those that want protection and all season capability.

Bought this lumbar protector about a month ago, used it on a 1000 mile trip and it was comfortable and breathed well. i figured i would be really hot having that on under a jacket and camelback in 90+ degree heat but i barely noticed it there. im 6'3'' about 195 and i bought the large number 5 based on the recommendation of a revzilla rep and it fits well. protection seems good, hope i don't have to use it.
