Solid and well built. I was surprised by the weight. There will be no prying this lock off. DO your measurements! Bikes with large diameter rotors have limited clearance between the rotor and the wheel rim which might dictate the lock model you can use. Installation is easy, but you will want to practice a couple of times first to avoid setting off the alarm if you are slow. The alarm is piercing and will definetly draw attention.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had been wearing baseball batting gloves for summer riding. Minimal protection but great ventilation. When I wore them out I wanted a similar glove with a little more of a motorcycle slant. The M20s are exactly that. Leather palm for grip and some protection. Mesh back for great ventilation with some padding for the knuckles. Exactly what I wanted. But, keep in mind you get what you pay for. These gloves are at the bottom end of the price range. Workmanship is good but materials are not heavy duty. Protection is for scrapes and bumps, not a high side incident. Fit is small. I fit in that L-XL category depending on the maker. I like my gloves to fit snug but went with an XL. They are about perfect for me. Still, had I been in a store, I would have, at least, tried an XXL to see the difference.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wanted a warm weather jacket that had high visibility. This jacket has all of that and more. Olympia mixed the high viz in with the black jacket to come up with something that is very easy to see and still stylish enough so you don't look like a lollypop. This material almost seems to glow in the dark. Workmanship is very good as is protection and ventilation. With the rain and thermal layers in, it is comfortable in early or late season riding. I with held an excellent only because the cuff attachments are weak. The liners only have a single velcro loop holding them in the sleeve and it takes care to get your hand out without pulling the liners halfway up to the elbow. Also, the jacket cuff adjustment has a real nice rubber tab so it is easy to get a hold off with gloves. The problem is that the velcro material on this closure is only one inch square and weak at best. It is common, under normal use, for this tab to brush against something and open the cuff right up. I am 6 foot and 200 lbs and went with a large. Might be just a tinge snug with the liners in but is perfect with them out. One more thing, the wind/rain liner is designed to be a pretty nice light weight jacket by itself when not zipped into the riding shell.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Originally purchased these gloves to wear over some heated liners I had just purchased. They would provide great wind/water protection and the short cuff would aid in plugging/unplugging the liners. Sadly, they run small and the XL I ordered fit my hands perfectly. No way the liners would fit.
They were such nice gloves, I decided to keep them anyway. Well made, great fit (if you order up), and very comfortable. I can't really say they are a three season glove, at least not in Minnesota. Temp range would get you down to the low 30s but you will begin to feel it in the fingers if you ride too far.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants When REV'IT introduced the new Cayenne Pro Jacket , they were tasked with developing an equally strong pair of pants the CAYENNE PRO pants. All of the product improvements incorporated in the jacket, such as weight reduction, improved insulation properties and stitch reducing laminated reflection and Super fabric panels have also been incorporated in the new CAYENNE PRO textile pants. These pants can be zipped to the jacket by a short or an all around 360 degree connection zipper. For the serious commuter or adventure / touring rider, this is the pair of pants that will fulfill your needs . Available in standard, long and short leg lengths, the Cayenne Pro Pants will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Jacket. While made to work specifically with the Cayenne Pro Jacket, the Cayenne Pro Pants also function very well when paired with the REV'IT Sand Jacket or REV'IT Dragon Jacket. PROTECTION FEATURES Outershell DuPont Cordura 500D, DuPont Cordura1000D, SuperFabric Insulation detachable Exkin lining Protection SAS TEC CE protection, Temperfoam hippadding, double textile seat Waterproofing detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Breathability detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Visibility laminated reflective panels ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit pre-shaped close fit Adjustability adjustable waist, stretch panels at the knee and back Ventilation ventilation zippers on the upper leg Features short and long connection zipper Pockets 2 slit pockets A commonly asked question we get is what is the difference between the Cayenne Pro Pants and the Sand Pants Both are high-end 4-season pants, but the difference is in the materials used. The Cayenne Pro's use an Exkin thermal liner, shown to have half the weight / thickness of the Dupont liner in the Sand Pants. The Cayenne Pro's use SAS-TEC armor, and the Sand uses Pro-Life and while both are CE level 2, the SAS-TEC armor is softer (only turning hard on impact) and more comfortable. The last major difference is the use of SuperFabric on the impact areas in the Cayenne Pro.

Bought the Pro pants along with the jacket. Closeout discount made it an exceptional value. Very high quality, heavy material, good protection. Fit was a touch snug, but, sadly, this might be more to do with my weight shifting south with age than with the cut of the pants. There are velcro straps for snugging up the waist, but I am more of a belt guy and would have liked to have loops available.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My apparel was really in need of an upgrade. I have a good mesh outfit for summer, but wanted a high quality suit for late season wear. The Chayenne Pro suit came up on closeout just at the right time. With the sizable discount, this suit was an exceptional value. Jacket is well made, very high quality. Lots of pockets and ventilation options. It is a bit heavy, with the waterproof and thermal liners and the optional back armor in, but doesn't really feel bulky or restrictive. It does run small (european cut). I am 6'0" and 195 with a 44 inch chest. I think, on the size chart, that made me an XL but I have always had trouble getting suit coats due to broad shoulders so I went up a size to XXL and the fit was perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great helmet. Lighter than my old HJC. Super graphics. Noise seems to be good although it is getting late in the riding season (Minnesota) so I didn't get a chance to give it a real test. Fit is snug, which I like, but I will still probably go down to 33mm cheeks. Especially like the visor. My HJC had a tendency of popping open if you turned your head at speed.
