Product review: Oxford Chillout Essential Balaclava

Oxford Chillout Essential Balaclava, £16.99 (£16.14 plus postage on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 500/two weeksWhat’s good: The neck piece is long enough to tuck deep into your jacket, meaning it won’t pop out and will keep the wind from your head, neck and upper chest. Above the nose the balaclava is also made of thinner, softer material, making it relatively easy ...

Lock review: Oxford Barrier chain lock

Oxford Barrier chain lock, £42.99Time used: Four months What’s good: I wouldn’t take my bike to London without this. It’s debatable whether any chain in production could keep a professional thief away indefinitely, but something this solid and obvious will deter drunkards, teenagers and opportunists who fancy pushing your shiny bike down the road. Save £££s on motorcycle locks The ...

Trouser review: Revit Factor 2

Revit Factor 2 trousers, £129.99 (£119.99 on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 1600/two months What’s good? The worst kit is obtrusive, the best kit just lets you get on with riding. When I’m wearing the Factor 2s I just don’t think about them at all, and that’s the biggest compliment I can pay to a piece of biking gear. Save cash on ...

Helmet review: HJC IS-MULTI

HJC IS-MULTI helmet, £169.99Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What’s good? HJC claims this is “seven helmets in one”. It’s actually more like four in one (we don’t think adding the sun shield counts) but that’s still seriously impressive. What this means is that if you buy an IS-MULTI you can ride a sports bike, a cruiser, a supermoto and a trailie ...

Save cash on motorcycle products Getting behind your downpipes, under your bellypan and on the bike-side of your exhaust are all tempting options. Simple to use, well ...

Held Bagira gloves, £49.95 (from £39.99 on MCN Shop)Dan Aspel Miles covered/time: 4000/six months    Save £££ on motorcycle gloves in the MCN Shop What’s good? These were the first pair of motorcycling gloves I ever owned. Anything would impress after wearing woollen mittens on a pizza scooter, but I still turn to the Bagiras when the weather warms up.

Kit review: Draggin’ Oilskins jeans

Draggin’ Oilskins jeans, £159.99Dan Aspel Miles covered/time: 700/one month   What’s good? Draggin’ market their products as being the most safety conscious jeans you can buy. Stitched and lined with Kevlar, they’re like your regular jeans only better. These have the added benefit of being water resistant.What’s not? It’s hard to see the point of the Oilskins. They’re neither warm nor ...

Product review: Muc-Off detailing brush

Muc-Off detailing brush, £3.99 (£3.99 on MCN shop)Times used: seven months What’s good? It came free with a Muc-Off cleaning kit. I was impressed at first as it appears to be quite solid and useful. The rubberised handle makes it easy to wield and it’s small enough to get under and around the more intricate parts of your bike. What’s ...
