Stunt Review Sick Innovations F4i Crash Cage

www.stuntreview.com/cat/crash-cages/honda-cbr-600f4i/product/sick-innovations-f4i-crash-cage/

Overall Thoughts:
The Sick Innovations F4i crash cage is hands down one of the best cages I have ever had the pleasure of running on my bike. Not only does this cage offer superior protection, but it also keeps your bike from rolling over up-side down which can lead to broken levers and handlebars.

The newest design of the SI crash cage offers larger diameter tubing all the way around (getting 14mm sockets stuck in the cage is a thing of the past). With the larger diameter tubing, comes spacers in order to tighten up the cage to the frame. Not to worry though, these spacers seem to be bullet proof. The new design also lets you install and uninstall the cage with ease.

The greatest benefit of the Sick Innovations cage is hands down the available leg/shin room it offers. This clean and ingenious design is the bottom dollar that sells this cage for me.

Pros:
* Strong Cage built with rider at mind.
* Very wide range of leg room.
* New design is easy to install.
* New larger diameter tube prevents sockets from getting stuck in cage.
* Removing the frame sliders won’t affect the cages protection and stability.

Cons:
* Will typically require drilling holes through the lower fairings.
* Frame sliders stick out relatively far, and may cause unwanted ankle busting.

Product review Icon gloves twenty niner

Icon Gloves Twenty-Niner product review

Icon twenty niner 29 glove

http://www.stuntreview.com/cat/protective-gear/gloves/product/icon-gloves-twenty-niner/

Overall Thoughts:
The Icon Twenty-Niner were my 2010 glove of choice. They are very light weight and extremely comfortable. The callus on my clutch finger practically disappeared over night while wearing these gloves. This glove also offers the best of both worlds as they are a combination of a motocross/mechanic glove that provides maximum motion and flexibility to your hands and fingers, yet have a leather goatskin palm offering more protection like a street glove.

The down-side to these gloves is they are only a few steps up from a motocross glove. They are in fact not very durable and I have gone through 3 pairs this year alone (slightly below average). In my experience, one pair wore down with little to no crashing, and the other two pairs came apart during crashes, thus exposing my hands around the fingers (leather and fabric mesh separating and leather wearing down) causing only minor road rash.

They do however still offer more protection than a motocross/mechanic glove while providing a much more pleasant feeling than a street glove which in any case, is a win win in my book.

If your looking for a glove with the motion and flexibility of a motocross or mechanic glove, but want a little more protection comparable to a street glove, these gloves are just what you have been waiting for.

Pros:
Extremely comfortable.
Lightweight and flexible.
Gloves breathe and ventilate well.
More protection than your typical motocross/mechanic glove.

Cons:

Limited durability and wear down rather quickly.
Above wearing down, they typically fall apart in the event of a crash.
Colors fade/bleed if near warm water.
Leather shrinks rapid if exposed to hot water (typical for leather).

Brembo handbrake master

–Brembo 16×18 Rear Hand Brake Master–

http://www.stuntreview.com/cat/rear-hand-brake-masters/product/brembo-16×18-master/

Overall Thoughts:
This hand brake is “In It To Win It!”. I have tried several different masters over the past few years and can say with confidence that this is the only rear hand brake that has completely satisfied my expectations for a smooth and reliable supply of power at the tip of my finger.

What I love the most about the Brembo 16×18 is the easily accessible adjustment on the fly screw, capable of a very wide range of adjustments. This handbrake was made to perform in any situation and can accommodate to anyone’s riding style.

Pros:
* Wide range of adjustments enabling the lever without restrictions from distance to the handlebar.
* Power and feel is in the “Goldilock Zone”. Not to touchy, powerful, and just right.
* Banjo bolt and bleeder screw are reversible allowing more room to setup your clutch lever.
* Bleeder screw is of a decent size, which greatly helps beginners from striping the thread.

Cons:
* No rebuild kit if the internal seals blow.
* Expensive but well worth every penny.
