    Here we go. From what I have heard the shells are also different, will have to confirm that.

    By the way keep in mind that C3 is a really small helmet, even unisex model doesn't look oversized on lady riders:

    Have a good weekend,

    P.S. It's about 75 and sunny outside, I better go for a ride :clap

    That last picture you posted of that gal going around the curve with her black C3W on is a great pic! What bike is she driving? I like it. Maybe the C3W is too cool for a KLX250SF rider?:cry

    Well I still need the Ventura jacket. But, just for future reference, hubby measured my head and it's 54.5 cm. And I like the white. And hubby agrees that my current helmet looks like a light bulb on me. Just saying...

    Besides, I thought the C3W wasn't available until late spring?

    Well, you know we have other holidays besides Valentine's day. If you need to come up with occasion, just let me know :)

    I have been trying to figure that bike out myself with no luck. The engine looks like it belongs to Hawk, but the frame is not aluminum. I'm lost.

    By the way I saw a guy riding KLX250SF yesterday, what a hot little supermoto!

    Hey Guys,

    So ordered in the Rev'it ignition jacket in a size M50 which was a bit to small both in body and in arm length. Again I'm a pretty slender guy (32" waist, 37" dress shirt sleeve length, 40" chest) Dennis recommended the M52 do you think that will take care of the sleeve length problem? Love the looks of the jacket and would like to find something that worked for my arm length. Thanks guys

    I thought the bike was a Gladius... maybe wrong.

    I think you're right, I think it is a Gladius. Thanks for posting. No wonder Dennis doesn't recognize the bike, it's not a Ducati:rofl.

    OK, Dennis, I have another question about the C3W. Do you know anyone that has tried it on with eyeglasses? Do they interfere with the built-in sun shade?

    I cannot believe I did not recognize it. Shame on me.

    I just sold C3 to a guy who wears glasses, the visor cleared no problem. This would of course depend on the shape of glasses, but I think anything with slim frame should work.

    By the way I checked with Schuberth, and it turns out C3W shell is the same as C3. So you were right, it's mostly the padding that is different. Cheers,

    Dennis

    Well, M52 would most definitely improve situation with body and sleeve length. I would not recommend going with M54 because it would be way too big in the body. Sometimes you have to compromise. Cheers ,

    I just got your newsletter and the Energy jacket cought my eye (it's hard to miss). Do I understand correctly that the waterproof liner is a permanent part of the jacket and is not removable? I always wanted a jacket that doesn't require me to stop to install a waterproof liner if it starts to rain, or to stop and remove it when the rain stops. If this is the case with this jacket, what are the tradeoffs? Is it hotter in the summer than a jacket with a removable liner? Thanks.

    Hi,

    You are right, the trade off is decreased ventilation. Because the outer shell is fully waterproof, the fabric is simply not as breathable as something with removable waterproof liner. I estimate the ENERGY is going to be very comfortable to low 80's. Cheers,

    Dennis

    I really should have mentioned this somewhere, however this is REV'IT! thread and I would rather not start another one, there are plenty of dealers who clutter vendors forum with threads for every product they sell. Perhaps I could ask GadgetBoy to tweak the title a little bit.

    Anyways, a couple of weeks Beach Moto became certified Schuberth dealer. For a while I have been looking for a helmet that would compliment quality of REV'IT! line, and it seems like Schuberth is the perfect match.

    Of course I would not be selling something I haven't tested myself. Almost a year ago one of my customers showed up in brand new Schuberth C3 that he purchased in Germany. He was kind enough to let me try it, and I was sold on the spot. The fit and finish were second to none. Few months later I bought one myself, only to confirm that it's one of the best helmets that I have ever had. I actually paid full retail for it, but considering I ride every day it was worth it - can you really put price on comfort? This is my first flip up, and I'm blown away by how functional and convenient it is.

    So if any of you FF's need some Schuberth love, you know where to find me :D

    I live in Canada and am looking at the Cayenne Pro jacket/pants. Doing a road trip (car) to L.A. in April so planning on stopping in and picking up what I need. Dennis, you're amazingly prompt at getting info back to your customer and appear to go the extra mile all the time. Kudos. Looking forward to meeting you soon :)

    Hello, would you consider Dainese Jerico a warmer glove then the Kelvin ?
    Is Alaska glove warmer then Kelvin ? With which glove could we compare Jerico ?

    Alarm,

    To be honest with you it is always extremely hard if not impossible to tell which glove will be the warmest. They are all roughly the same, and the warmth greatly depends on your bike, speed and weather.

    I would actually compare Dainese Jerico with REV'IT! BASTION - they are both high end textile / leather Gore-Tex gloves and have similar features.

    I have heard that theoretically KELVIN is a little warmer than the rest of them, but from my personal experience I can tell it's not true. I have used KELVIN all last year, and this year I upgraded to BASTION only to love them as much as you can love thick winter glove :D

    One thing I absolutely hate about winter gloves (and KELVIN is not an exception) that when your hands get a little sweaty, the liner comes out when you pull them off. This "feature" of winter gloves literally drives me insane, and I'm glad to report that both ALASKA and BASTION are free from this issue.

    As far as pure warmth goes, handguards and heated grips are your friends. I found that winter gloves always present compromise - make them very warm, and they become so thick that you do not feel your controls. Both ALASKA and BASTION are as thick as I would want them to be.

    My friend Tom and I are headed south. For 6+ months. Leaving Seattle and stopping when we feel like it/run our of money. We'd like your suggestions for Central and South American adventures. We're after completely waterproof jackets, waterproof pants also if they exist, and durable all weather riding gloves. We'll be stopping by on our way south as well, so you'll have the opportunity to show us what's what, sell your heart out, and get us to spend lotsamoney.

    What a dream trip you are about to take. :clap I'm jealous.

    What you are looking for is SAND jacket and pants - rugged, functional for a trip like this (well ventilated but waterproof when needed) and simple enough to keep up with wear and tear. As far as gloves go, there is no one glove that does it all, but COMET would be a good start.

    When do you plan on being here in LA? Cheers,

    Dennis
