Pilot Motosports Trans.Urban V2 Jacket Review

I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing Pilot Motosport‘s follow up to their original Trans.Urban jacket , the Trans.Urban V2 for the past several weeks and I’ve come away very impressed. This jacket is more of an evolution of the original rather than a makeover and that’s great as there was a lot to like about the original one.

The original Trans.Urban was a great jacket for a very good price at $225.00 (USD). The new Trans.Urban V2 updates the styling and armor but keeps all the good stuff that was already in place and only adds $15.00 (USD) to the price. This is only 7% from where it was around three years ago so it’s not a bad increase at all.

The important aspect to keep in mind is the value that is represented. Even with the minor cost increase, the bang for your buck factor is still impressive. Add in the fact that it’s a pretty sharp looking piece of kit and you’ve got a great 3/4 length jacket for honest three season use.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? For all the details and more photos head over to the full review here at webBikeWorld.


Scorpion EXO-T510 Helmet Review


My review of the Scorpion EXO-T510 Helmet published over at webBikeWorld.com.

The EXO-T510 is aimed at the sport-to-touring rider segments, although it would be equally at home in the commuter arena too. It is also competing in the very crowded mid-range pricing area between $200 to $250 USD. This price range used to be full of products that may have been somewhat compromised on comfort, build quality, features or other aspects — the things that differentiated them from their lofty cousins costing $350.00 or more.

In 2016, technology advances in materials and manufacturing are really making those differences harder to see though, if not harder to “feel”. Scorpion has outfitted the EXO-T510 with a wealth of features that I’m not certain all exist in one place on any other helmet in this price range. At least at the time of this writing I can’t seem to find one.
