Akrapovic Slip-On Exhausts The Akrapovic Slip-On line represents the first step in exhaust system tuning. It is simple to install and replaces a stock muffler. It is also the best compromise between price and performance. With our Slip-On system you will get more power, more torque and less weight, which all reflects in a smoother ride. The muffler clamp is made from carbon fiber the metal clamp that is welded to the muffler can in some cases replace our regular carbon fiber clamp Repair kits are available for all models Some models are available in a version with EC type-approval Ten Reasons to buy Akrapovic 1. Innovative Design Akrapovic is recognized as a leader in exhaust system design. Akrapovis patented hexagonal shaped mufflers created a storm in the motorcycle aftermarket industry, and this shape transformed the concept of exhaust systems, replacing the standard oval. Our car exhaust systems set the standard for design right down to the exquisite tailpipes. Akrapovi there are no better-looking exhaust systems. 2. Pure Power Our exhaust systems are designed to provide you with higher levels of performance. We call it Pure Power. Reduced weight from the combination of the right materials and the best design to ensure optimum exhaust flow. More horsepower. More torque. More performance. Pure Power. 3. The Unmistakable Sound of Akrapovic Our exhaust systems sound like no others. Just the right notes at the right times. Deep, resonant sound. The sound of Pure Power. With our car Wireless Kit and on our custom motorcycle range, the sound is adjustable. Make your own sound with Akrapovic. 4. Race Proven Racings in our blood. Akrapovic has successfully supported racing teams since it was founded. Over seventy world champions have relied on Akrapovic when it really matters. Akrapovi is an Official Sponsor of the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP team and a partner with over fifty motorcycle race teams in all formats on and offroad. There were no fewer than thirteen world titles in 2012 alone, including domination of all forms of offroad racing and wins with Jorge Lorenzo / Yamaha Factory Racing in MotoGP and with Max Biaggi / Aprilia in WSBK. Akrapovic celebrated victories with Audi Sport at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 2010, 2011, and 2012, and is an Official Partner to Audi Sport, which is in the running to win the FIA World Endurance Championship. Akrapovic is also an Official Partner to BMW Motorsport, winners of the 2012 DTM Championship. Theres no better proving ground for your exhaust system than the worlds most demanding racetracks. 5. Research, Development Testing We invest heavily in research and development. The best people, new materials, new technology, and new processes ensure we develop innovative new products. We back this up with rigorous measurement, testing, and quality control to ensure our exhaust systems meet the most stringent EC type-approval standards where required. 6. The Best Materials We only use the best materials. Titanium heat-resistant alloys for all the key parts of our titanium exhausts, not just the outer sleeves like many of our competitors. Austenitic stainless steel and carbon fibre which is pre-impregnated and ultralight for high tensile strength and temperature resistance. 7. Advanced Technology We are pioneers in developing and using technology to bring real benefits to the rider. Technology and its applications are developed in-house. Hydroforming is one such process, where header tubes are molded by applying pressurized water. The material forms the ideal shape for optimum exhaust flow, with no loss in strength. We are recognized as pioneers in the plastic deformation of titanium alloys and also in precision welding. 8. State of the Art Factory All Akrapovic facilities are state-of-the-art, where quality control is maintained by designing and manufacturing all exhaust systems in-house. This enables the creation of exhaust tubes to our own demanding specifications for maximum performance and quality. In-house laboratories ensure that the most exacting standards are met for type approval and certification. 9. Passion Experience Its the passion, experience, and dedication of the Akrapovic team that few can match. Over twenty years of devotion to developing the best exhaust systems and a desire for perfection in the design, performance, and sound of all our products. All Akrapovi employees work with a passion for our products, for racing, and for satisfying our customers. 10. Attention To Detail Its all in the detail. From the design right through to the packaging. The right looks, the right sounds, and the right power delivery combined with perfect fit and durability. These are the details that matter.

The only thing I can fault about these slip on's is the fit. I installed them on my 2010 Ducati 1198S. I'm a bit of a fanatic about things fitting correctly and that is one of the reasons I chose the rather expensive Akrapovic's. Unfortunately the slip joints do not 'slip' exactly right and look somewhat sloppy. Also, the right side unit extends about 10mm further to the rear than its left side counterpart. Odd. Barely noticeable but still odd. Neither RevZilla nor Akrapovic has an explanation for this. Quality is good, sound is verrrry nice and overall I like 'em. But this fit thing bugs me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This suit has (2) zippers, one across the chest and one at groin level. There is a full stop between them, meaning that the upper, 'get into it' zipper is much shorter than it could be. This makes getting the suit on more difficult than if it were made with a single full lenght zipper. I don't like this feature. I wear size Euro 50 leathers. I ordered this suit in 48; once on the size and fit are perfect for me. I am sure the seams are not going to last due to the degree of streching necessary to get in to it. The split zipper is a bad idea. I checked the 'recommend' box but...I'm not sure.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The quality of the materials, the workmanship and attention to detail are remarkable. At first the suit was hard to get into but after a few rides (an some experience with how to go about getting it on an off) it has broken in and begun to comform to my body. The Laguna Seca gives me an incredibly planted and supported feeling. It breaths pretty well and is certainly not restricting in any way.
And it is a very good looking suit. Mine is black with flo red.
The liner attachment zippers in the legs are odd...I can't quit figure out how to access them. I've contacted Revzilla about this and the question is under investigation.
Size. I'm 5'9", 152 lbs. The 50 fits me very well except in the seat where it is cut (in my opinion) too full. I tried a 48, but it was uncomfortably tight on my upper body.
I don't think anyone would be dissapointed with this suit.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants are very well designed and made to perfection. Every seam is straignt and tight, all the zippers move effortlessly and the quality of the materials is superb.
I'm 5'8", 151: I wear 31X30 Levis. I ordered Euro size 48 and they are like a custom fit for me. I have suits and dress pants that don't fit and feel as good as these Dainese's.
The pants are very comfortable while riding; they give me a nicely secure feeling yet I'm able to scoot around on the seat eaisly. And I feel protected.
I recommend Dainese Alien pants fully. I also recommend Revzilla. The service is fast and efficient and the video reviews help me make the right choices. From now on I will always shop Revilla first. You should too.
Yes, I recommend this product.
