I purchased this faceshield about a week after purchasing the helmet. It blocks direct sunlight very well. I've been able to ride with it on during very cloudy days and still have ample visibility. However, I recommend packing a clear/lighter visor for days as these just to be safe.
Looking at the visor from outside, it is pretty dark; but the rider's face can still be seen though minimally. I'm not very sure about other riders, but I dislike being identified while riding so I'd like if it were a bit darker.
It does fog, so it is best to use this faceshield with the anti-fog insert that comes with the helmet itself or just buy it separately as I plan to. I honestly believe that it is nearly impossible to ride without the insert, especially in the colder temperatures. At least that is my experience with the faceshield sans anti-fog insert.
I've had a few pieces of debris and sizable rocks (size of an infant's fist) fly up and strike my faceshield pretty hard going at least 45 mph and there was no scratching or cracking. I think I was just lucky.
Overall, this was a great purchase and I would—probably will—make it again. I recommend this product.

I've had this helmet for a few weeks now and feel that it's about time I share my feelings on this piece of protective gear.
Though it is a racing helmet—and I was very aware of that upon purchase—I use it for street riding. The airflow is phenomenal even outside of the tuck position and even the 3/4 position. But due to this awesome airflow, there is wind noise at 45+ mph. It is not unbearable, but it is there. However, the upper vents' wheel mechanisms that control the amount of air you want to allow in help some with the noise.
Upon receiving my new helmet, I put it on. Within 10 minutes, I almost forgot that I was wearing it. It is extremely light. For me, it was a bit hard to tell the difference between it and another helmet by holding it in my hand, but the difference is completely noticeable when worn. No more sore neck.
I've yet to test out its durability—and would rather not—but if I'm ever curious I'll watch a couple of Spies' crash videos and feel satisfied.
If you are considering purchasing this helmet, then I highly recommend you take the leap and purchase whether for racing or street.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased these gloves to use for an MSF course. I tried them on and, as almost everyone has mentioned, it is a tight squeeze to get your hand through the opening. Once you do, everything is fine unless you have my problem.
One of the gloves felt much smaller than the other and I could visibly tell that the stitching was slightly different on one causing the glove to fit tighter than the other. It helps to put them on everyday and make a tight fist or get a strong person and let them stretch them /gently/ repeatedly. It also helps to trim your nails to create more space for your fingers, especially if they are above the tips of your fingers.
If you're afraid of having this problem, you can always size up once over your usual size. Better to have a little too much room, than little to none to move around comfortably.
Yes, I recommend this product.
