  • Joe Rocket Revolution Insulated waterproof gloves

    Joe Rocket Revolution Insulated waterproof gloves

    Let me preface this- I paid $22 for these gloves from NE, so I got what I paid for and they are doing exactly what I needed them to do. I still don't think it's a bad price, as long as you know what you're getting. I live in Santa Barbara, so winters here are mild (Upper 40's at the coldest, upper 60's in the day), and needed a glove not as hyper-ventilated as my Tourmaster Robomax'es for my commute. I don't feel I got a raw deal, but depending on your purposes they may not be what you need. ...

  • Review: Cycle Gear - Sedici Heated Gear (links included)

    For about two years now, I've been considering heated gear. Those who know me, know I ride year round as a funeral escort, so the weather gets dicey. It wasn't until last year did i get a set of heated glove from the funeral escort company (and I've been doing it 8 years now). They were gerbing brand gloves, and were plenty nice. I didnt care for the way I had to wire them up inside of my jacket, but it was functional. I've been considering buying a whole matching set of heated gear. It's not th...

  • Visor Rain Product Survey

    Visor Rain Product Survey

    There's a good deal of folk wisdom floating around on the internet as to what you can use to make your helmet visor a little more useful during rain. Some common remedies include the use of Rain-X(r), carnuba automotive wax, Cat Crap(r), and Pledge(r). This review is the summary of my test of these products. The visor in question is a clear plastic visor from an HJC CL-14 helmet that has been in use for more than a year. While it is in workable shape, there are a few scratches. The products te...

  • Riding Safety Glasses- Nemesis (Highly Recommended)

    First things first- A Full-Face visor should provide more and better protection than any safety glasses, and reduce eye fatigue. I got these because sometimes I like to flip my FF visor up when there's no traffic around or I'm going at slow speeds, and feel the wind in my face for a while. I still want something protecting my eyes, and in the sunlight, I want some sunglasses too. MissyB put me onto these safety glasses, and spared me from purchasing a $200 pair of Oakleys. Instead, I dropped...

  • Aerostitch Warm Wraps

    Aerostitch Warm Wraps

    Warm wraps, it's not just a lunch menu item. Now that it's getting cooler in parts of the country, for some riders it's time to get into the winter riding frame of mind. One common problem is cold hands. There are a number of options, ranging from electric gloves, to heated grips, to inexpensive grip warmers. Last year I commuted through the winter and experimented with Aerostitch's Warm Wraps; heating elements that wrap around your existing grips. Unlike true heated grips, where you have to replace...

  • Fieldsheer Highland 2 Jacket and Pants

    Fieldsheer Highland 2 Jacket and Pants

    Fieldsheer Highland 2 Jacket & Pant Review I ordered this jacket from Brockton Cycles for $75, it was on closeout and only the smaller sizes are left. Not a bad price, considering normally this sells for $200. I already own a pair of the Highland pants, so rather than springing for a full 1 pc suit, I chose the jacket instead. Out of the box, this jacket is 3/4 length, what some would call a touring jacket. Since it will be a winter use jacket the extra length helps keep the heat in around...

    Icon Alliance and Alliance Rubatone Helmet

    For $72 Dollars, it doesn't get much better:
    http://www.newenough.com/icon_helmet_alliance_page.htm I picked up one of these helmets when I accidentally dropped my HJC CL14 and broke the mechanism that controls the visor. While, I was not happy that I just destroyed my helmet, AND had to ride home without a visor; I was already looking around for a new helmet. I was originally considering the HJC SyMax and and a few oth...

  • Carhartt Pants

    Carhartt Pants

    Carhartt pants as riding gear? What does the popular work garment maker have to do with riding? If you look around the riding community, you'll find most of the major gear makers have a selection of riding jeans. Myself, I have had two pairs of Draggin Jeans and was recently looking to find another pair of fabric, non-leather, riding pants. After reading reviews on Canyonchasers.net, I went and picked up a pair of Carhartt "logger" denims. Upon inspection these are made from the same heavyweight...

  • Alpinestars SP2 Leather Gloves

    Alpinestars SP2 Leather Gloves

    Great review, I have the SP-1's and really like them. One thing to keep in mind the A*'s , especially the race versions tend to be 1 size smaller than most gloves. I normally wear a size L glove but with the A*'s its XL.

  • Rev-It ST Pro Gloves

    Rev-It ST Pro Gloves

    I've been through about 6 pairs of gloves in a little over a year. I know, I have problems. But with hands being used so frequently in daily activities I think they merit excellent protection. I previously did a review on my Alpinestars SP2 gloves that I lowsided in. They held up just fine, but I heard numerous stories about them failing for other riders. That's no good. Being fed up with trying so many gloves I decided to drop some money and get a pair I could really trust. I went with the Rev-It ...

  • First Gear Kiliminjaro Air Mesh Jacket
    by Derick
    So, I'm not a huge leather person, and while I was shopping for my jacket, I was offered the FG KJ Air Jacket. Overall, I love it. It has a mesh overcoat and a windproof and waterproof removable liner The jacket is great down to about 30 degrees, and with the removable liner it's capable in warm weather riding as well. It's a 3/4 length jacket, so depending on your bike, it MAY bunch. I am 6'3", so it bunches a little bit, but due to my height I need that extra little bit of length. As I me...

  • Fieldsheer Mach 3 Mesh Jacket
    by HotFix
    Review after 6 months of usage (Sep-Mar / 80F - 30F) A little background on myself first. I don't like spending money on myself and usually talk myself out of any purchase. When I first approached the motorcycle scene I wanted to ease in as cheap as possible, but yet still have the right gear to have fun. Keeping this in mind I wanted an all season jacket. In Atlanta, GA - that means mesh and a rain liner. It keeps the wind off and I feel comfy at ...

  • Corbin Saddle Review...
    by Wookie
    This review based on my Aero 750 and may or may not work for your bike, so please take that into consideration.

    I was in the market for a new saddle for my Aero 750 and looked at the Corbin and Mustang saddles. I decided on the Solo saddle for several reasons.

    1. I love being able to customize the saddle. You can use different colors, textures and you can shape the seat to move you forward, backwards, up or down. 2. Price: The Corbin was cheaper than the Mustang...

  • FirstGear HT Air Overpants
    by anthony
    About a year ago, I purchased a pair of FirstGear HT Air Overpants. They're textile pants with mesh panels for cooling, and they come with a windproof/waterproof liner. Knee armor is foam, but I believe you can purchase CE armor as an upgrade. Hip armor is also available, but has to be purchased separately. The construction is fairly solid. The legs have sturdy zippers that go the entire length of the leg, and can unzip from the top or bottom. All snaps on the front of the pants are covered...

  • KBC VR-2 Legend helmet
    by Missy B
    My birthday and Mother’s Day were right around the corner, so what else would a girl want but a new helmet? The Fulmer I had received with my motorcycle purchase wasn’t meeting my needs anymore (visor hinges cracked), so off to CycleGear to choose the next helmet. The salesman pointed me in a few directions, but as soon as I put the VR-2 on my head, I knew it was the one for me. I was a little hesitant at first because of the tight neck fit. That makes it interesting to don, ...

  • Lee Parks DeerSports Gloves
    by Guest
    I've used several pairs of fancy armored gloves, and truth be told, I always wondered if the armor on the knuckles would make enough of a difference in a crash to be worth the tradeoff in bulkiness and comfort. Many times I would end up riding with Aerostich's cheap deerskin garden-glove like mitts, because they were the only gloves I had that breathed adequately for wide-ranging temperature conditions and were comfortable on my hands. The Lee Parks school of glove design throws many old ...
