Over this winter, Nolan and Arai closed out a large number of high-quality models like the N104 Evo... a favorite of touring riders who love their modular design. And in the Arai line, the Signet-Q was closed out to make way for the Signet-X. And if you are a Signet person, you know there are scant few other helmets that will fit your long oval head! (lidpicker shape reference)
Anyway, I wanted to offer up the last of those great helmets before they are sold out for good. Have a look below.
These helmets are all included in theLidPicker sizing database. This information can be useful if you like how one model fits you and want to know if another model is in the same "ball park" with regard to overall shape.
A Lid Picker Report prepared for you will show how your own head shape compares to each model in much finer detail.

Impressive new riding jeans from Speed & Strength!
Wow, nice jeans! For those that want some riding jeans that are comfortable and look “normal”, you’ll really like these. I personally like Lee Modern Fit jeans. The fabric in these pants reminds me very much of those. The fabric is thick, but very flexible and has a good deal of stretch to it. They are very comfortable to sit in. Since the material has some synthetic fibers to accomplish the stretch, they have a nice look to them and aren’t rumpled like 100% cotton. These pants have reinforcement Kevlar material in the seat and knee areas much like most other riding jeans we have. They also include CE armor in the knees. The knee armor is adjustable up or down since the armor is “stuck” to the inside of the pant leg with Velcro to fix the position. And the armor is inside a little cotton pouch so that it is comfortable against your leg.....(
The Soul Shaker pants are an alternative to the look and feel of regular jeans. These pants are more like canvas work pants. The material is a “stretch” blend, but the the stretch is minimal… it’s there and they’ll flex a little, but they don’t stretch nearly as much as Speed and Strength’s other new jeans this season, the Critical Mass stretch jeans. The styling of the jeans is much like Dockers, but I’m not sure they’d pass muster as “casual Friday” garb because the broader weave canvas-like material makes them a bit more casual. These pants have reinforcement Kevlar material in the seat and knee areas much like most other riding jeans we have. They also include CE armor in the knees.
Overall, I like these pants and it is nice to be able to offer an alternative to jean styling......(
