New items from Motovan

There's a couple nice new items that have been added to the Motovan line-up. If you're in the market for some racing boots and/or gloves you might want to check these out. If they don't have them in stock at your local motorcycle dealership ask them to bring some in.


Full details:


THE NEW TCX R-S2 RACING BOOTS - A boot with Precision fit and greater protection. 

A brand new model added to the racing line, the R-S2 is the first boot to feature TCX’s Precise Air-Fit System (P.A.F.S). Developed by the company’s Research and Development team, this offers the wearer a revolutionary precise fit system. Situated on the front of the boot, the air pump can be used to adapt the shape to an individual’s unique requirements. To remove pressure, there is a release system, which allows the air to be released quickly after use.

TCX’s Torsion Control (TCS) system has been given a face-lift and now has carbon fibre injected into the structure. The carbon reduces the weight of the boot, and increases the structural support; with added movement of the leg/foot and increases protection of the foot in the event of a fall. Another new feature is the MCS system, which uses the same concept as TCS. It has been designed to control up and down bending of the metatarsal, which is achieved with two stopping points designed to prevent any lesions to the joints.

Here are some of the key features to this great race boot:

- Precise Air Fit System (PARFS)
- Air Tech breathable lining
- Double compound PU Soft padding around ankle
- Light micro fiber, breathable, high wear resistant upper
- Wider padded front and rear for better comfort and flexibility
- Polyurethane shin plate with iron mesh air intake
- Polyurethane shift pad integrated into sole
- Replaceable high resistant alloy toe, calf, rear and ankle sliders
- Zip and Velcro closure Light and breathable anatomic mid sole with heel shock absorbing foam
- Low profile, mono compound rubber sole with specific grip area
- Torsion control area
- Metatarsal control System 


NEW RFX-1 MOTO GP RACE GLOVE - Advanced Racing sport gloves from 5Gloves. 

The all new RFX-1 offers the latest is quality materials and fine point safety features. The RFX-1 is made from the finest full grain leather available on today’s market. The palm features full grain leather with added digital grip and external seam with Kevlar shock absorbers. What really makes this glove a must for the most avid racer is the RFX-1’s reinforcements. Double polyurethane vented knuckles, polyurethane air extraction with molded carbon side palm and Kevlar foam on last finger. The 4th and 5th last fingers are stitched together for extra security measures preventing the fingers from doing the (split) while falling off in an accident. Kevlar is also found on the top and the back of the palm. Five Gloves added a double adjustment for the wrist and one for the cuff granting the rider with that perfect feel of comfort.

Cardo Systems Launches the scala rider G4 PowerSet Bluetooth Intercom System

Operational in Minutes, With TWO Factory-Paired, Bluetooth STEREO Headsets for Bike to Bike Intercom Communication Up to One Mile* Right Out of the Box!

Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for motorcycle helmet headsets, today launched the brand new scala rider G4 PowerSet, an intercom communication system featuring two factory-paired units of the most feature-rich bike-to-bike Bluetooth headsets on the market.  The system contains two scala rider G4 headsets, for bike to bike intercom communication up to one mile* -creating a new industry standard.  With the addition of a third paired G4 unit, three separate bikers can talk to each other as well.  Two scala rider G4 PowerSet systems, four headsets in total, can be used together in full duplex intercom communication between two couples on two bikes traveling within a distance of up to one mile between each other.


Right out of the box, bikers can start communicating using the paired devices, creating a safe, convenient and enjoyable communication experience. In addition to intercom communication, Each G4 can connect with virtually any portable Bluetooth device including mobile phones, MP3 players and compatible GPS units (for in-helmet voice instructions).  It can also connect with non-Bluetooth MP3 players and GPS units via its embedded jack, and the entire line of scala rider headsets.**  Both can transmit STEREO music from any MP3 player with A2DP capability. Incoming intercom messages and mobile phone calls automatically override MP3 music. Each G4 headset can be actively connected to one Bluetooth device and two other scala rider headsets at one time.


“The brand new scala rider G4 PowerSet increases the range that motorcyclists can enjoy speaking with each other and also extends the number of bikers who can speak on intercom at once with full duplex,” said Abraham Glezerman, CEO of Cardo Systems, Inc. “The pair of headsets included in this package is packed with features that our customers have requested .”


Each scala rider G4 comes equipped with a built-in FM radio with RDS empowering riders with the ability to scan and seek stations and to save favorites utilizing the six-station channel memory. Voice-recognition (for answering, dialing or rejecting calls), multilingual spoken status announcements (to report incoming and outgoing connections) and AGC technology for automatic volume adjustments (based on ambient noise and driving speed) all contribute to completely hands-free communication and enjoyment.


Working with virtually all motorcycle helmets, the scala rider G4 PowerSet is available with noise-canceling microphones for the highest communication quality. The devices’ rechargeable li-polymer batteries allow for up to 10 hours of talk-time and 7-days standby time.


The new scala rider G4 PowerSet is now available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty motorcycle shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems web site at www.cardosystems.com with a suggested retail price of $489.95 USD.
