Boots Review: Dainese Anfibio Café

Andy Downes, 15 July 2013 09:56

Dainese Anfibio Café, £165 Time tested: 1200 miles/two months What’s good? These are my dry ride to work, around town and short journey boots and in that role they have been perfect so far. I wanted something that was subtle, offered some basic protection over non-bike boots and so far they have been excellent. The fit from the start was ...

Tyre Review: Bridgestone T30 tyres

Andy Downes, 28 May 2013 09:26

Bridgestone T30 tyres, £200 approxTester: Andy DownesMiles/time: 2400 miles/two monthsWhat’s good: These slot into Bridgestone’s range as sports touring tyres for road riders who cover big mileage in all conditions; a role in which they excel. The T30s replace the BT023 and are a huge improvement. I’ve used them on my Ducati Multistrada 1200 and they gave huge confidence in ...

Arai Quantum

Andy Downes, 22 July 2011 14:56

Arai Quantum, £399 at www.mcnshop.comMiles covered/time: 15,000/one year What’s good: This Quantum lid replaced an older Arai Viper GT for one reason only; the Viper had basically worn out after years of riding and tens of thousands of miles. The comfort is top notch, the security of the shell is the same as the range-topping RX-7GP but does without the noise-generating ...

Michelin Pilot Pure tyres

Andy Downes, 23 May 2011 16:52

Michelin Pilot Pure tyres, £230 Miles covered/time: 1200/one year What's good: These are the lightest tyres in the class according to Michelin and as road tyres for my 1998 Honda CBR600F-W they seem about perfect. When I bought the bike last year it had some old and original Michelin Macadam 90X rubber fitted. I wasn’t riding a single mile on ...

Trouser review: Ixon Evil jeans

Andy Downes, 01 October 2009 14:00

Ixon Evil jeans, £139.99 (£125.99 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: 2500/six months What’s good? I wear these on my commute to work and for short trips on the basis that they offer more protection than a non-Kevlar set. Not everyone will agree but they are my (already busted up) legs. Save money on motorcycle trousers Comfort is great once the knee ...

kit review: Schuberth C3 flip-front helmet

Andy Downes, 26 August 2009 15:56

Product: Schuberth C3 flip-front helmet, £404.99 on MCN shop Tester: Andy Downes Miles covered/time: 8000/six months What’s good? I’d never used a flip-up lid before this Schuberth but opted to wear the C3 when I had to head out to KTM’s factory to pick-up a bike for an urgent MCN road test. I knew it was great in cold conditions, ...

Suit review: Spyke Speed Toy

Andy Downes, 10 July 2009 17:13

What’s good? This is the same suit MotoGP rider Andrea Dovizioso wears – and it’s a new experience for me because it’s made of 100 per cent kangaroo skin. The difference over leather is amazing – it’s so much more supple and a little bit lighter too. Protection levels are high with hard shoulder armour plates and the ventilation system ...

Helmet review: RX-7 Corsair

Andy Downes, 28 May 2009 14:04

Time owned:14,000/18 monthsWhat’s good?The fact that my head is absolutely fine despite a 65mph highside on track which resulted in several hard impacts and a lot of sliding too. I loved this lid. The paintjob was done by the incredibly talented Rich Art was to my own design and I was gutted to see it smashed up. Have replaced it ...
