I think that's what the gloves and helmet were called. Anyways, I'm thinking about getting the helmet because its on closeout for 69. But the gloves not so sure there around 40.

as with much of JR stuff, crap. Even though I don't like the skull/flames/bling/biker thug aspect, icon's gear is better quality than JR imho. But I'm a Dainese man thru and thru but I have worn both other brands previously.

I had a pair of their glove, and I agree--crap. They turned into fingerless gloves after a few months.

However, I have their Atomic 4.0 jacket and it has held up fine. I slid through dirt and shit in a crash aside from some scratches on a few zippers, there's nothing wrong with it.

I'd go with a Scorpion EXO-400. It's Snell/DOT-certified, affordable, and comfortable.

These are the gloves I use:
Icon Twenty Niner Gloves - Street Motorcycle - Motorcycle Superstore

I like them. Only bad thing is those vents in the cold.

Always have retarded good closeout deals on Scorpion helmets. You will always pay more for graphics if you want the extra flare. I think they have some Cortech Adrenaline gloves on closeout for like $40, love my pair. for $140 plus shipping and everything else you can get yourself a nice helmet and gloves. Check their sales and closeouts for everything else

Never skimp out on gear, quality gear will save your ass. Thats just how I see it anways. Arai,Shoei and AGV helmets is all I wear/own. You can get good deals on top brands all the time. As for gloves I always have had A* but you have to make sure they're real and from a reputable dealer, lots of fakes. There are "deals" for GPPros for $70 but they're fake.

This is what my old SP1's looked like after a lowside off the highway, cant complain.

I think I'm going with an exo 700 scorpion. What's the difference between the matte one and the one that has anthracite or something like that ?
