DISCOVERYPARTS PRODUCT DUEL - Entry Level Helmets: A Toss Up between Roux R1-F and the Bell Sport

ROUX R1-F vs. the Bell Sport

Roux is a relatively new brand to us here at DiscoveryParts but in the short time we've been acquainted, we have grown to love them. With the company's style and safety state of mind, their helmets are quickly climbing to the top and competing with best selling brands like Stilo, Arai and Bell. In this review, we are going to delve into what makes Roux a great company and how their entry level helmet contrasts with the entry level helmet of a much more experienced brand, Bell.

An Introduction to the Alpinestars 2017 Tech 1-ZX Nomex Race Gloves 3X-Large

"If you're in need of some Alpinestars racing gloves but your hands remind you of those 2003 Hulk Smash Hands that barked 'You won't like me when I'm angry!' when you socked your little brother in the face, then you probably need to come see us at DiscoveryParts - the only place in the country that you can find Alpinestars 2017 Tech 1-ZX Nomex Race Gloves in XXXL."

DISCOVERYPARTS PRODUCT DUEL - Battle of the Balaclavas

DiscoveryParts Product Duel - Battle of the Balaclavas                                                       

Balaclava exist for three reasons: keeping your helmet in pristine condition, protecting against heat in a fire, and keeping sweat from streaming into your eyes. So truth is, no matter the comfort level of that new M8, the balaclava you choose will ultimately determine the life of your helmet and your degree of comfort and visibility. It does a lot of nasty work for you, catching your filth and protecting your head and shiny helmet. Balaclava deserves a little more than a "just give me whatever's cheapest" attitude. 

In this DiscoveryParts face-off - no pun intended - we are comparing our three most popular balaclavas: Alpinestars ZX Evo, OMP Nomex One, and Traqgear One Layer One Eye Black.

Now that we've established the importance of a good balaclava, let's do some research to find the best one on the market for your racing and tracking needs!

Roux R-1 Composite Helmet In-Depth Review

DiscoveryParts saw the first pre-production versions of Roux helmets almost two years ago. Days, weeks, month and truly years have gone by before we received our first two pallets of final production SA2015 Roux helmets in fiberglass, composite and 2 versions of carbon. Why is there a Roux helmet? There is already another powerful brand that was the originator of the fully featured and customizable auto racing helmet, Stilo.

So why make Roux?

Bell M8 In-Depth Helmet Review

DiscoveryParts finally receives a SA2015 Bell M8 helmet. We first saw the spy pictures over a year ago and finally put our hands on the pre-production piece in December for the 2015 PRI show in Indianapolis. At first glimpse it was apparent this was not the previous Bell M4 with a different decal on it.

Tire Pressure - The Most Checked item on Every Race Weekend.

Getting ready for the track is fun and stressful at the same time. Racing has been in my family for generations and passed down to me, first through watching my Grandfather, other Family Members and then my Dad hit the track in the best car they could afford and prepare. Winning 27 Demolition Derbies is not a common bragging right, but that record is held by my very own father. The racing gene is strong and pressed down many generations, but getting ready for the track is still a little stressful.
