Replaced the stock tires on my Grom, after some scary moments sliding in the rain. These work well in the rain and seem durable. I'm really surprised at how I'm having trouble breaking into them compared to other tires. It looks like they will last a long time.

I really like the fox branding and design. I wish the shirt came a little looser. Compared to men's shirts this is much tighter. It will be impossible for me to wear armor underneath, as it fits like a running shirt. I ordered a large per the size chart and I'm not busty. It might be hard to fit for curvier women.

Fits true to size and very stylish. I like the rubberized raised section on the pants at thigh, which seems slightly protective. Very comfortable and high quality pants.

Comfortable helmet. Good air flow without being drafty on the interior. The lining is plush without being too soft. I like the graphics and feel that it's safe with DOT/ECE/SNELL ratings. I would buy this brand again.

I've had these for 3 years, wearing them about 2/3 of the year for commuting. Finally one of the zippers broke or got worn out at the knee. But considering the amount of use I've given them, I think it's pretty good.
On the plus side these pants are very versatile, warm or cool depending on what you want, with customize-able fit at knees.
On the negative side, they aren't that fashionable. It can be rather frustrating to have to keep opening up the velcro sections to get at zippers on the legs. If these came more tailored to a specific purpose, without the number of removable liners, less velcro etc. it would be a bit easier. I wish the liners zipped into the legs along the opening instead of having a 2 tab connection at the bottom. Also wish these were more fitted at the ankles.

I picked up these gloves because I've had good history with Alpinestars and I wanted better protection. I like the 3-4 finger bridge (pinkie protection). I was worried it would make it hard to ride with the fingers connected, but I don't even think about it. Also the gloves are very soft, softer I think than SP series. I'm not sure about durability considering how they feel softer than SP - but I'm very happy with protection, feel, etc. And I like that these are classed as race gloves so I can use them if I ever want to go to track. I haven't been able to feel any air flow though these, so they work well as a fall-winter-spring glove for temperate climates like California. Wearing these in summer would be a little rough depending.

I just picked this one up as I noticed loss in contrast vision from glare on morning commutes. Best investment ever! I feel like I can see better with the iridium shield. Definitely worth it.

TCX Women's X-Square Boots Finally, a women's specific version of one of TCX's best-selling boots. TCX didn't just shrink and pink the X-Square Lady, but utilized the same anatomy-focused product development considerations for this Women's model that they have applied to others like the Lady Aura . These include using a women's specific last with narrower heel, lower toe box, and accommodation for a higher arch. Features UPPER suede with patent leather inserts and padded collar LINING 2D mesh PROTECTION ankle guards, reinforced toe and heel counter CLOSURE laces and Velcro band INSOLE molded EVA with antibacterial, moisture wicking face fabric SOLE wear-resistant, mono compound rubber sole with specific grip area

The perfect riding shoes for me. I will definitely be a repeat customer of this brand.
Comfortable. Some flexibility between toe and base of foot. Ankle bone protectors. Stiffer toes. And I love the style. Much more comfortable to wear than full racing boots. And perfect for light riding, going on my scooter around town.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very happy with purchase. Although I probably should have ordered the women's version for my women's small jacket. The pocket matches the exact widest dimensions of the back pad, so it's a huge pain to insert and remove.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought these for the protection and for that reason they're good. According to the chart in the package I should have ordered a large. Typically I am small in jackets, so I thought a medium would be good for gloves. Anyways, protection is good or decent. The only real negative is the horrible flower logo with glitter on the top of the glove. If I keep these I'm ripping the sewn on logo off. Also the wrist is not tight enough . If I close it all the way the velcro doesn't fully attach. So maybe these just aren't the gloves for me.
No, I do not recommend this product.
