Kit review: Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers

Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers, £129.99 Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/five months What’s good? The armour is very well positioned so that when you are riding the bike it perfectly covers your knees. It’s surprisingly thick too. This is why, even after ejecting from a Daytona 675 recently whilst wearing these, I don’t walk with a limp now. The ...

Kit review: Frank Thomas X Terrain Jacket

Frank Thomas X Terrain Jacket, £169.99Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/five monthsWhat’s good? It’s really warm, even with the inner lining removed. With the lining in and zipped up properly it’s like riding along inside a yeti. The bright colours are good for visibility and it’s got a wealth of pockets to fill with useful things. The armour isn’t bad ...

Kit review: Lidl Undersuit

Product: Lidl Undersuit, £11Miles covered/time: 2000/four months What’s good? For the cost of a tank of petrol you can have an undersuit. It is surprisingly good at regulating your body temperature. It can take the edge off a chilly day on a long trip and keeps you cool on hot days. Also it makes you look like a futuristic cat ...

Kit review: Hein Gericke Basic II rainsuit

Product: Hein Gericke Basic II rainsuit (£44.99)Miles covered/time: 1000What’s good? It packs down quite small. It is possible to put it on without taking your boots off. If you dream of walking around in a black crisp packet, then this is the suit for you.What’s not? It lets water in. In rain the zip down the front leaks. The bottom ...

Kit review: RDM Tail Bag

Product: RDM Tail Bag, £19.99 Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/six months What’s good? I bought this tailback because I needed take a lid to someone’s house; at just under twenty quid it cost less than a backpack. It’s big, square and there is enough room in it to hold enough clothes for a weekend at the TT. It comes ...

Kit review: Classic Draggin jeans

Product: Classic Draggin jeans (£99.99) Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 3000/four months What’s good? The first time I wore these jeans I was rear-ended at some traffic lights and thrown off the bike. If I hadn’t been wearing the jeans my injuries would have been much worse. Of course if the car driver behind me had remembered that you stop ...

Glove review: Frank Thomas X Terrain

What’s good? They are waterproof and breathable. In really hot temperatures they can get a bit uncomfortable but for British weather they are perfect. My favourite thing about these gloves is that they co-ordinate with the XT jacket and trousers. The colours are great too, black bike gear is as dated as Stovepipe hats and steam engines. What’s not? They ...

Helmet review: Schuberth S1 Pro

What’s good? It’s amazingly quiet, almost spookily so, it’s like upgrading your head to first class. Sun visor flicks up or down in a second. This means you continue to ride if the light changes when your friends are at the side of the road struggling with switching their visors. The peripheral vision is spectacular as well. Now that you ...

It's got Google Maps built in, so provided you can get a signal it will tell you exactly where you are anywhere in the world. It can work out the route to your destination and tell you how long it will take. The iPhone gets all ...
