Just bought a Force RR all black. Its a bit noisy compared to an AGV Demon vent. VERY noisy compared to an Arai Quantum II. There is a significant amount of wind entering from below the chin opening. This might be a plus during the summer, I am not sure, but in So Cali in 60 degree weather, its a bit too cold. Also tends to dry my eyes out. Its offering very good ventilation in 60 - 70 degree weather, but we will see when it gets hotter.
The clear visor is clearly not perfect, as when I move my head, there is some warping. Its a bit snug for me right behind the neck. Overall its a better fit without any pressure points for me at least, compared to the Arai Quantum. The visor change system seems complex - not as easy as an Arai, but I might just have to practice some more before making a judgement. Its fairly light - feels about the same as my Arai. Its not moving around at high speed.
I got it for about $150 plus a 20% coupon at Cycle Gear, so for the price, its not bad for my short 15 minute comute. I wouldn't recommend this helmet for a long ride.
I am in the market for new gloves and asking for Opinions. I had been looking at the Knox Handroid but the $300 + price is out of my budget. I am looking for something around $150 or bellow. Not looking for summer only gloves.
Whats up fellow riders,
I'm new here and a senior student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Currently working on my senior project, which is innovating motorcycle foot protection and would love to hear some of your guy's thoughts!
1. Would you buy a slip on exoskeleton type armor...
