Helmets

First up the KBC VR-2R Reaper full face helmet – On offer at just $99.99

This has a UK SHARP safety rating of 2*

kbc-vr2-reaper-helmet

With a high-performance design ready for street and track alike, the flagship KBC VR-2R is a true racer’s helmet.

Engineered for aerodynamic airflow and stability at high speeds, the KBC VR-2R platform features reduced shell dimensions and overall size. The eye aperture, strap positions, and shell ergonomics have been fine tuned to increase peripheral vision, improve head maneuverability, reduce neck strain, and dampen wind noise.

  • Lightweight, sturdy TriComp shell is constructed with advanced Vacuum Lamination System

Next up is the the Arashi Turbo on offer at $49.99.

Now I know that some people look down on cheaper helmets like these, as they feel that there is no way they are going to be as good as something which costs $500.  But here in the UK we have the Sharp Helmet Safety Rating scheme which puts helmets through a series of tests and rates them according to their performance.  These tests rate how well the helmets perform over and above the minimum safety levels and these scored 3* out of a possible 5*, which for a cheaper helmet really isn’t bad at all, especially when you consider that a lot of the more expensive helmets are not scoring as high.

arashi-turboarashi-turbo

Arashi combines superb design, outstanding features, and world-class quality in each and every helmet. Engineered and crafted to provide all-day comfort and protection.

Features and Benefits

This helmet scored 4* in the Sharp Helmet Safety Rating tests

shark-s650-frame

shoei-rf-1000-diabolic-2

One of the most technologically advanced helmets for street riders – and clearly one of the best-looking helmets on the market. Shoei’s innovation and cutting-edge design makes the RF-1000 a premium motorcycle helmet.

Aerodynamically superior, the RF-1000 full-face helmet delivers high-speed performance and ventilation that is wind-tunnel proven. A perfect fit is achieved through removable, adjustable cheekpads and a 3D comfort-liner system that won’t shift during high-speed riding.

The legendary Shoei fit is developed from 3 shell sizes and 4 sizes of EPS liners. The RF-1000’s shell is made from Shoei’s proprietary Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) multifiber technology, which embeds ultrastrong organic fibers into fiberglass. The result is a lightweight yet strong outer shell that is better able to absorb and disperse the force of an impact.

Features and Benefits

Aerodynamic Shell Design

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind-tunnel and rider testing
  • The Aero Stabilizer dramatically reduces drag and lift coefficients, thus diminishing rider fatigue and increasing performance

Two-Layer EPS Liner System

  • Two-layer liner offers unmatched ventilation with internal channels and exhaust ports throughout the helmet
  • Integrated Upper Air Intake minimizes air turbulence and maximizes air stream in all riding positions
  • Outlet holes in the Aero Stabilizer allow warm air to be exhausted
  • The lower air intake provides an additional source of air flow
  • The neck outlet vent allows for effective air exhaust

Lightweight, Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+)

  • High-performance-fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid, and resilient

Anti-Fog System

  • The lower air intake provides air flow that helps to diminish shield fogging

3D Interior Liner

  • Removable interior cheekpads available in optional sizes for a custom fit
  • Chinstrap cover can easily be removed to allow for cleaning or replacement

Standard Chinstrap Clip

  • Neatly secures chinstrap

CX-1V Faceshield and Lock System

  • Quick-Release Base Plate (QRBP) System allows tool-free shield removal
  • A wide, 3-dimensionally-curved shield offers increased peripheral vision and optical clarity
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays

Specifications

  • Certifications: DOT 218; Snell M2005
  • Weight (approx.): 3.28 lbs. / 1490 grams

Unless otherwise noted, helmet comes standard with clear faceshield.

Gloves

First in my glove selection is the Alpinestars SPS set.  On offer at the moment for just $69.95

dainese-hellracer-gloveAvailable in Men’s and Women’s sizes

The Dainese Hellracer moderates the technical and stylistic language found in the Duel glove, toning down some features to make it more accessible to the racing – but not ultra-racing – user.
In fact, although the Hellracer has less armoring compared with the Duel, it still maintains a high level of protection.
By adding streetriding comforts, the Hellracer’s undoubtedly aggressive origins are delicately balanced, making it suitable for road and racetrack alike.

The Dainese Hellracer: Dedicated to those who want the best of both worlds.

Features and Benefits

  • Constructed of Kevlar jersey and cattle leather
  • Elasticated inserts on the fingers, wrist, and back of hand for articulation

Ladies Teknic Sevilla Motorcycle Jacket Just $64.99 At New Enough!

February 27, 2009

Yup… You did read the entry title correctly, New Enough has the following jackets on closeout at just

$64.99!

The review on the New Enough website says

The Women’s Sevilla jacket offers the features you would find in an expensive touring jacket, but at an affordable price (while closeout supplies last).

This would be a good choice for use in a wide range of weather conditions from cold and wet to warm and dry. The jacket offers waterproof construction by way of a mid-liner. Use of a mid-liner keeps water out effectively but the shell material of the jacket gets wet.

Although the jacket has some large vents the mid-liner won’t allow free flow of air all the way through the jacket to your skin so I wouldn’t rely on this jacket for the hottest weather conditions. For cooler weather, a full sleeve insulated liner is included.

The liner is relatively thick and should work quite well. One neat feature that this jacket has that would be handy for touring is the liner pouch. When not in use the liner can be folded into a pouch that can be worn as a fanny pack (nice when storage space is an issue).

This jacket also offers quality protection. The shoulders and elbows are equipped with removable CE approved armor, and a removable CE approved backpad is also included. For comfort, the jacket has adjustable sleeves, wrist closures and an adjustable waist.

The jacket features are as follows

  • 600D Cordura outer shell construction
  • Anatomical pre-curved ladies sports cut
  • 2 front zippered air vents with rear exhaust vent
  • 100% waterproof and windproof Hydroguard liner
  • Airmesh lined collar with neoprene edge and front
  • Knox® CE approved armor in elbows and shoulders
  • Knox® CE approved back armor
  • Teknic hidden triple storm flap over front zipper
  • 2 front pockets and 2 internal pockets
  • All zippers are genuine YKK zippers
  • 8 inch zipper connector
  • 5 oz Polyfil insulated zip-out full sleeve liner
  • Reflective 3M™ anthracite piping for night time visibility

  • Teknic Freestyle Textile Jacket – Just $59.99 From New Enough

    February 27, 2009

    The Teknic Freestyle Jacket is on closeout at New Enough for the absolutely amazing price of

    $59.99!!!

    image

    At almost 75% off MSRP, these jackets are an absolute bargain!

    The shoulders and elbows of the jacket have built-in heavy-duty “GP” type armour. The armour is comprised of a hard outer shell with softer padding underneath. This type armour is commonly used in racing suits. The lower back and kidneys are protected by an external back protector.

    image

    Nearly any rider could make good use of a jacket like this, and at this price, consider these for gifts, passenger gear or back-up gear.

    Good grief, the armour system alone is worth the price!

    Use the drop down menu on the product page to view the sizes and colours remaining. Most all sizes in five colours remain.

    Have You Heard Of New Enough?

    February 11, 2009

    If you are looking to buy some new gear you can’t go far wrong than taking a look at the New Enough website.  These guys are offering deals which really cant be missed out on!

    Established in 1998, New Enough started out life as a motorcycle leather exchange business and has quickly grown into two 20,000 square feet of climate controlled warehouse space at Shallowater Texas. 

    The almost family run company now focuses on selling ‘current year’ closeout gear sourced from distributors.  By being able to buy these closeout, or end of range lines as we in the UK call them, in bulk at heavily discounted prices they are able to pass these savings on to their customers.

    They stock a full range of  motorcycle gear including jackets, trousers, gloves, boots and helmets for both men and women, plus a range of children’s clothes and helmets as well as parts and accessories.

    I know these guys are based in the USA but they do post worldwide, and given the prices they are selling this kit off at you may be able to pick up a bargain no matter what country you are in.  I know there are a few items in their range that I really like 🙂

    They actually try all the gear themselves and write a review of what they think about it, so you won’t find the normal ‘catalogue type reviews’ found on other sites.  It’s a personal opinion which I think is so much better.

    You can find their latest BEST DEALS here.

    And their own CLOSEOUT SECTION where there is many a brilliant bargain to be had.

    Here are a few of the great money saving deals they have as of 11th Feb 2009.  Obviously the range will change regularly as new stock comes in and older stock is sold out.  

    If you are looking at buying something then make sure to check your size is available, especially in their own closeout section and don’t forget to check the shipping costs too.  Click on the links to be taken direct to their website..
