Palm and back in highly abrasion-resistant sweat-resistant and color-fast kangaroo leather Unlined palm. Back and thumb fully padded with shock-absorbing SUPROTECT and 100 Kevlar One of the most common injuries is dislocation of the little finger. This happens because the little finger is inadequately protected. To avoid this Held has given the little and ring fingers additional Kevlar padding on the inside and outside Pre-formed, crumple-free palm Special flat seams reduce pressure points on the inner hand, and enhance feel GFC shells with 100 Kevlar ceramic polymer matrix coating give perfect protection to the side of the hand and knuckles Side of hands and knuckles protected with highly abrasion-resistant rayskin, (dasyatis bleekeri), a world first. This is underlaid with shock-absorbing gel, for unmatched impact protection. Protected Velcro straps on the cuff and wrist Visor wiper

You really can't go wrong with these as far as protection goes. I've heard nothing but good about them in crash reports. Comfort is decent, my REV' IT! Curbs were more comfortable. But with the protection they offer I feel it's a good trade off. Not to say that REV' IT!'s don't offer good protection. But they don't have the pedigree of the Helds. I was actually pretty torn between these and the Jerezs, but opted for these because of the protection factor. Airflow is pretty good for this style of glove. Best feel through the fingers of any glove I've worn. Price is on the high side even for these type of gloves. But given the high end materials and the fact that they're hand stitched, I think its fair. A note on sizing, I went with Held's sizing chart and ended up with a size 9. The fingers were a bit too long and I dropped to an 8.5 which were perfect. So if you don't have long fingers try a half size down first, YMMV. All in all I don't think you can go wrong with these.

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bells exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

This is definitely my best helmet to date. Pretty tight fit so far, but it's supposed to be a race helmet type fit. Other than the snugness it's very comfortable. Great airflow, especially from the chin vent. One of the lightest helmets I've had and definitely the most aerodynamically stable helmet I've ever had. Head checks with absolutely no buffeting, never experienced that before. All in all you can't go wrong with this lid in my opinion.
