Moto Lift ML-12 Motorcycle Lift

Moto Lift from No-Mar

All new for 2024, the ML-12 scissor lift was designed by mechanics, for mechanics. These new lifts feature unique E-Track connector points to make tie down stabilization fast, easy and where you want it. They utilize common automotive Goodyear Air Spring technology to quickly raise and lower the lift without the maintenance frustration and hassle of leaky seals. The heavy, 11-gauge steel deck height is as low as 8 inches off the floor and up to 41.5 inches for the top stop setting. It features a black-textured powder coating and comes in three colors: orange, red and gray.

The five-position automatic safety lock device was designed to be easier to use than other designs. The device resets near the bottom of the landing stroke automatically and will settle into preset height stop positions with ease and confidence on the way up. It comes with wheel vise, ramp, a pair of E Track D-rings and a pair of cam straps. There is a five-year warranty on all steel parts and the air spring.

Dainese Audax D-Zip Perforated Leather Suit

Audax D-Zip 1PC Perf. Leather Suit

The Audax D-Zip One-Piece Perforated Leather Suit’s construction and functionality is inspired by the latest technology tested by MotoGP professionals. Positioned at the forefront of D-air-free racing suits, this suit excels in safety with a class AAA mechanical resistance. Customizable aluminum inserts on shoulders and knees, along with steel inserts on elbows, optimize protection by minimizing friction during a fall.

Crafted from premium D-Skin cowhide with localized perforation, the suit features a patented fully stretch back construction that reduces seams and enhances resistance in case of a fall. Utilizing stretch microfiber with Microelastic 2.0 inserts, the suit ensures a close fit and excellent containment of volume in an upright position.

Enhancing riding comfort and freedom of movement, the double-zipper construction and stretch fabric on the abdomen, a historic Dainese patent, keep the body snug against the tank in a tucked position without discomfort from a rigid central zipper. The integrated Boots-IN system ensures maximum riding comfort.

The breathable mesh fabric lining ensures maximum thermal comfort, and the internal waterproof pocket safeguards documents and cell phones from downpours, completing the array of features that distinguish this revolutionary motorcycle suit.

AGV Limited Edition Mono Ghiaccio

ADV Limited Edition Mono Ghiaccio helmet

The Mono Ghiaccio stands as an authentic replica of the AGV helmet utilized by champions in the MotoGP World Championship. Hence it has attained the new FIM homologation, affirming its top-tier protection against hazardous head twisting.

This limited-edition racing helmet is crafted from a 100% carbon fiber shell adorned with icy shades with exclusive metallic silver-green finish, white metal alloy air vents, magenta iridium PRO Spoiler and incredibly small visor mechanisms. 

Featuring a 5-millimeter-thick optical Class 1 Ultravision visor, integral to the protector, it provides a 190-degree panoramic vision. The exclusive 360-degree Adaptive Fit system enables complete customization of the interior, allowing riders to choose the ideal thickness for the upper head, nape and cheeks. This bespoke comfort level liberates riders to focus solely on their goals.

Brembo GP4-MotoGP Brake Caliper

The Brembo GP4-MotoGP — available in a 100-millimeter fixing version — boasts exceptional performance, thanks to the oblique pad slide, typical of MotoGP calipers, which allows a greater braking power with the same amount of force applied to the lever. Furthermore, it has a greater anti-drag effect, instant pads release and less pad wear.

Particular attention has been paid to the introduction of ventilation fins on the outer body and the new racing pistons, both characteristics which improves the braking system’s thermal exchange, contributing to cooling it. This is achieved by air circulation as a result of vehicle movement, but more importantly by rotational-induced air movement of the brake discs and wheel.

Just like the Brembo calipers used by professional riders in MotoGP and SBK, this new monobloc caliper is machined from solid billet of aluminum. The ribbing on the front section embraces four pistons in aluminum and ensures the utmost rigidity of the system, transmitting to the rider a strong feeling of safety and reliability of the bike.

Strength and pure performance even at high temperatures are also given by the nickel-coating treatment, which gives a brighter and smoother look, while still ensuring durability, wear resistance and optimal performance on the road for an uncompromising riding experience.
