Alpinestars S-MX1 Boots A complete revamp of its predecessor, the Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boot is low profile, comfortable, and fuctional with a refreshed style in both black and white. It also has a toe slider, velcro adjustment strap and a styled TPU shift pad. This shoe will go up against any of the other sport riding shoes and boots in the 100 to 200 range. Look for the S-MX 1 Riding Shoes to be a perennial favorite for the casual enthusiast and hard core sport riders. Features Upper constructed from lightweight microfiber Breathable mesh inserts and perforated side panel for enhanced ventilation Foam backed, double density ankle protector on the medial side Reinforced toebox layered under the microfiber upper Plush 3D mesh inner liner Combination zipper and Velcro strap closure system Outsole constructed with the same advanced rubber compound as the S-MX 5 Boot External TPU protection on the outer ankle External TPU shift pad, slider and heel counter Integrated shank in the sole for extra rigidity Anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed.

This does run a little small so order a US half size up. I'm usually an 8.5 in men's US and order a 9. Fit perfectly.

Great air flow, shoulder and elbow protection feel solid and like they would offer protection in case of a fall. I measured a chest size of 39" normally and 40.5" while holding my breath. I bought a size Medium and the fit is perfect. I'm 5'8" and the arm lengths were perfect as well. This jacket looks great too. I got these on sale for $139 so it is a great value for the jacket. I was surprised at the weight though as they felt a little heavier than expected but it is due to the level of protection offered. There are pockets for back and chest protectors. I wear these with the alpinestars bionic back protector and it fits.

I bought these shorts for protection on my legs. I wear these under a pair of jeans together with knee guards and riding boots. This gives me the confidence that I've got a fair degree of lower body protection in the event of a fall. I'm a waist 31 and bought a size Medium and it fits very well. These should be worn over boxers.

 Arai RX-Q Urban Helmet
Arai RX-Q Urban Helmet
Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications 2010 Model

I got this on sale with 36% off the retail price. My head measured 56.5 cm and I got size small. It fit a little snug but I guess that's better than loose. It is not uncomfortable though. My first helmet by the way so I can't compare to others.

I followed the sizing instructions and bought a size Medium. The fit? Perfect. I haven't had an opportunity to ride in these as yet but I am convinced that they would offer great protection on the event of a fall. I am not sure of the airflow as I haven't ridden in these ur they do keep my hands a little warm just wearing them. Not a deal breaker on any way. This glove is way stylish and got loads of features for protection. Get them! You would not regret it.
