This is a high quality boot, with real gore-tex, and real leather. There is substantial protection for shin, ankle, and heel/toebox.
My only issue is that this boot is Very Wide! I have two insoles in, and must wear two pairs of sox to get anything close to a good fit. I do have very narrow feet so I kind of expected them to be wide, but these must be in the D to EE width in US sizes. Other than that, I doubt you will find a better boot for this price! If you wear wide shoes, this is your boot!!

Vemar Jiano Evo TC Helmet LED and Bluetooth Cheek Pads are sold seperately. Jiano, an ancient god that had roots in a number of different cultures, was used to symbolize change and transitions such as the progression of future to past, of one condition to another, of one vision to another, and of one universe to another. The perfect symbol of the Vemar Jiano Evo TC modular street helmet! The Jiano Evo TC features a mid oval shell shape which offers a more generous fit front to back and more snug fit ear to ear. The Jiano Evo TC is a very comfortable fitting helmet for riders who like to ride for long distances. The internal liner fits the rider without any kind of pressure points. The exterior shell is constructed a Kevlar/Carbon Fiber/Fiberglass mix. Exterior shell is aerodynamically shaped for ease of cutting through the air with less buffeting and wind noise, thus lessening the stress on the riders neck muscles after a long ride. The Jiano Evo TC shield closes when the chin bar of the helmet is opened. Not all modular helmets do this. If both the chin bar of a helmet and the shield are open at the same time the aerodynamic effect created is very uncomfortable (unsafe) for the rider, this risk is eliminated with the Jiano Evo TC. The Jiano Evo TCs chin bar lock mechanism exceeds expectations for safety and convenience. At the same time, the recessed actuation button is easy to use even with one gloved hand. Two sizes of outer shells cover the 6 helmet sizes for the ultimate in a light weight yet proportional fit. An anti-fog, non-scratch 2.2mm thick outer quick release clear shield is standard. Five (5) year warranty from manufacturing date, which equates to the full usable life of the helmet. Every Vemar helmet comes with a high quality helmet bag and a detailed user guide. A sleek 75 tint interior shield can be moved into position at the riders discretion via an easy to access lever on the exterior left side of the helmet. Interior shield can be used even with the chin bar rotated upward and is replaceable. The Jiano Evo TC features a double density high impact inner shell. Removable and washable ultra plush non-deformable high density expanded polyurethane cheek pads. Removable and washable ultra plush inner liner is manufactured from a technical fiber that provides life-long treatment against odor, fungus and bacteria, and extraordinary wicking capabilities that result in enhanced rider comfort. Padded chin strap with a micro adjustable closure buckle for fantastic comfort, easy operation and maximum safety. Padded wind deflector in the chin piece. A fine screen is in the chin vent for insect protection. Features the exclusive Vemar Klima adjustable full ventilation system. Engineered in Italy to the motorcyclist specific EC standard. DOT and CE certified Note that with CE certification the chin bars are tested. Thus the Jiano Evo TC has been CE certified as a full face helmet!

The EVO TC is a very comfortable helmet. It has a high quality liner, and provides good airflow for a modular. Lots of good features (quick release chinstrap, built in sunshade,, removable and washable liner) and it is a modular that is rated as a full face. The detents on the face shield are very positive, and once placed, the shield will not move in the wind. The built in sunshade will not replace sunglasses, but does help with glare, and also provides some nominal protection when the face shield is fully raised for maximum airflow. The EVO seems very solid and sturdy when compared to the HJC modular it replaces in my gear. I am very pleased and will recommend this helmet to anyone seeking a good value in a modular helmet!
