Product review: EXO² HeatSole

Michael Neeves, 08 March 2012 17:10

EXO² HeatSole £89.99Time used: Three months What’s good: These heated inner soles simply slip inside your boots or shoes and are heated up by rechargeable power packs. They heat up to around 45 degrees and are self-regulating. What’s not: They’re comfortable enough but I could never really feel them warm up. I’d say the batteries last for no more than ...

Trouser review: Weise Tex Midlayer

Michael Neeves, 01 March 2012 12:24

Weise Tex Midlayer trouser £49.99Time used: Three months What’s good: I’m really impressed with these thermal trousers and I’m wearing them a lot under leathers, winter riding gear and even jeans when it’s really cold outside. Thanks to the windproof fabric at the front of the trouser and the fleece inside they’re nice and warm, but the best bit for ...

Product review: Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance layer

Michael Neeves, 19 December 2011 10:41

Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance Top (£69.99) and Bottoms (£49.99)Miles covered/time: 12,000/five months What’s good: This two-piece undersuit makes wearing one and two-piece leathers very comfortable and easy to slip-off, even on a hot and sweaty day. The Dryarn material is very lightweight and it’s a figure-hugging, muscle-supporting compression fit, too, which Alpinestars say helps to reduce fatigue. I’ve been wearing ...

Michael Neeves, 30 November 2011 16:09

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex trousers £249.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: These Gore-Tex touring trousers are really warm, comfortable, easy to move around in and very well-made. Like the Excursion Jacket, the trousers are constructed from a Teflon-coated, abrasion and tear-resistant fabric with a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. It has CE-certified knee and shin pads and soft padding on the hips. The ...

Michael Neeves, 30 November 2011 15:55

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex jacket £349.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: This superbly-made, comfortable touring jacket will be my constant companion over the winter months. I’ve already used it loads for MCN testing duties, worn it on a holiday to France in the early summer (when it was still cold) and am now commuting with it. It’s lovely and warm, but ...

Michael Neeves, 23 November 2011 11:33

Proguard Motorcyclists custom-fit earplugs, £125.99Miles covered/time: 3000/two months What’s good: These soft, medical-grade silicon earplugs are custom made to suit the individual and the price includes having a foam mould taken of your ears at a local FlexGuard centre. They post the earplugs out to you two weeks later. They (or ‘it’ in my case – I’m deaf in one ...

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses

Michael Neeves, 08 September 2011 09:47

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses, £105 Time used: Two months What’s good: Worn by the good Doctor Rossi, these shades won’t make you ride like him, give you access to his immense wealth, or look like him – although maybe that’s a good thing. They have a polished black frame, ‘warm grey’ lenses, yellow ‘O’ and VR46 logos and come ...

Michael Neeves, 30 August 2011 14:06

Muc-off Dirty Work Wipes, £2.99 for pack of 15 Time used: Three months What's good: These cleaning wipes are designed not only for your hands, but they'll clean anything from tools to bike parts, thanks to its textured surface, which lets it 'scrub' whatever you’re cleaning. They're an essential part of my toolbox when I'm racing or at trackdays, when ...

With all its sections attached and unfolded it's a triple-decker tank bag and has 34-litre’s worth of space. There’s a nice big transparent map pocket, which ...
