Fri, 05 Jan 2018 10:00:00 +0000

Gear Look as cool as Giacomo Agostini. Dainese recreates its 1970s Italian racing and street style with the Settantadue Collection.

(MSRP: $169.95) The Imola72 boots have that ’70s-era roadracing look and provide more protection than urban riding boots and look more discreet than modern technical boots. (MSRP: $379.95) [...]

The ultimate in braking technology.

These carbon, titanium and aluminum monsters are just warming up at 400-degrees.
Carbon discs and brake pads thrive in temperatures that would destroy standard street components, but the service life of these parts is just 600 or so miles. Billet aluminum calipers are nickel plated. They hold titanium pistons and quick-release hose fittings that permit rapid parts swaps.
