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.

AGV K3 Rossi Dreamtime Helmet The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident. Fabrics Dry-Lex with hygienic treatment Inside padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Number of shells 1 shell size Retention System Double-D ring Shell Painted HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin Shield Mechanism Perimetrical visor seal, XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) - shield replacement without tools in few seconds Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Note Clear shield is included, tinted shield available for purchase separately

There is a lot of quality built in to this helmet. Fit I believe is a mostly neutral shape. For example, I almost bought a Shoei RF-11, but fought off getting it cause I just hated the graphics. I liked the AGV K3 so much better and didn't have to spend as much money.
Good: Ventilation is superb. Visibility of course is great due to the dreamtime graphics. And the paint job quality is good. Helmet seems quiet.
Bad: Mesh chin guard easily falls out. Wish there was an option to put a chin guard in that isn't mesh. Honestly sometimes there is too much air coming up from the chin. Visor pops off easily if extended all the way up. I'm pretty sure this isn't a feature, but a manufacturing mistake. I just make sure I don't push it ALL the way up.
Good or Bad (not sure): I get lots of compliments on my helmet, which is cool. But it's starting to get a little annoying to have people talk to me at lights or whenever I'd rather be paying attention to traffic or getting going. The shape is definitely longer in the front and takes up more storage.
That all being said, I really love this helmet and would buy again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
