  • Which brand of motorcycle gear do you have ? Why ?

    All in the title, which brand do you like best (or which one do you have used and is a no go) ?

    My scorpion helmet for example, bought it 300 euros, dead in a year (the smoked screen isn't attached to the command to open it anymore, the visor have no notch -broke...-, the air in the cheeks leak ...)
    Doesn't recommand this brand to anyone ...

    Peace

    As far as helmets go, I have both an Arai RX-Q and a Shoei RF1200. Both good summer helmets, the Arai fits my head a little better. Gloves and jacket I have AlpineStar, boots are TCX, and pants are some kevlar jeans that look decent but I wouldn't buy again due to the lack of padding.

    As far as the Scorpion helmet, I've got friends who run that brand and they've worked out pretty well for them.

      Considering I work at a motorcycle gear store I've got a few things. But I'll stick with my current summer gear for now.

      Helmet - Arai Signet-x (goes by a different name)
      Jacket - RS Taichi Raptor perforated leather
      Pants - RS Taichi 3D Cordura
      Boots - Alpinestars short boots
      Gloves - Five stunt evo

        I personally only wear BikersGearAustralia clothing on the bike; because it's made locally and is all 1.3mm 1 piece leather; and below $200.
        Unbeatable.

        As for helmets, Airoh.
        I've owned tens of helmets, and NOTHING has come even CLOSE.

        Also since I don't speed, there's actually something to be said about a lightweight helmet like an Airoh, which has a little (very little, but it's there) amount of flex. Shock absorption at normal road speeds are often more crucial than being 'rigid af'.

          That's crazy cheap for leather jackets. After looking at the site they seem ok but seeing as I can't look at them in person I'll have to take your word for it. If I may ask what do you like about the Airoh? I'm just curious as to why they would be better than an Arai or Shoei, if you have owned either of those helmets?
