Product review: Tucano Urbano 323 bar muffs

Tucano Urbano 323 bar muffs £54.99Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The 323s are (fake) fur-lined, waterproof and very warm. Perfect for winter commutes, they make sub-zero biking bearable. Elasticated gators around mirror stalks stop icy draughts. Attaching them takes minutes and as they fix onto your bar ends they're stable and stiff enough to prevent being pushed onto levers. ...

Barbour Surtees waxed jacket

Barbour Surtees waxed jacket, £279.95 Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The wax cotton jacket has made a bit of a comeback recently with many manufacturers now offering similarly styled garments. The Barbour Surtees is arguably the best looking jacket on offer with a stylish leather collar and retro chest patch. The main material is medium weight with a Sylkoil ...

Prescription Photochromic Davida WRS74 goggles, £115 Miles covered: 2000 (to Spain and back) What’s good: The WRS74’s are a straight-armed, flexible-framed goggle with foam pads around the eye sockets to prevent windblast from hitting your eyeballs. An elastic headband (included) can be fitted and used on the outside of the lid in the traditional way. Optique Goggles fit prescription and/or ...

Lewis Leathers Countryman No385 jacket

Lewis Leathers Countryman No385 jacket, £675 Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The adage “buy well, buy once” has never been more apt when it comes to the Lewis Countryman jacket. Hand made in London, the jacket is an exact copy of a garment originally made by Lewis in the 1940s. No detail has been skipped in this replica – ...

Givi T489 Easylock tank bag

Givi T489 Easylock tank bag, £72.25 (bike specific tank ring £13.08) Miles covered/time: 2000 miles/one month What’s good: The Easylock mounting system on the T489 consists of a metal ring that bolts onto your filler cap surround and a plastic coupler on the underside of the bag. It works incredibly well. Just place the Givi tank bag onto the ring ...

Trax Evo 45 litre panniers

Trax Evo 45 litre panniers, £272.22 each Miles covered/time: 2000 miles/four weeks What’s good: Made from folded, sealed and riveted 1.5mm aluminium, the Trax Evo panniers are faultlessly constructed, 100% waterproof and sublimely simple to use. Sliding on to four metal bobbins, single stainless catches secure them to the equally superb and low profile Quick Lock Evo Carriers (£221.75 pair) ...

Bell M5X Daytona

Bell M5X Daytona helmet Miles covered/time: 1500/four months What’s good: If you’re over 40 years old the sight of a Bell Helmets logo will almost certainly spark a little interest. In the ’70s and ’80s if you wanted the best lid money could buy you bought a Bell Star. The 2011 M5X has a few of the features that made those ...

Sandy Bike Spares stainless steel downpipes for 1999 Honda CBR600FX

Sandy Bike Spares Stainless steel downpipes for 1999 Honda CBR600FX, £153.26 Miles covered/time: 200/one month What’s good: £150 for a set of four-into-one stainless exhaust downpipes is an absolute bargain, £100 cheaper than similar pipes from Motad. These UK-made pipes are well made from thick gauge tubing, bolt on as neatly and as easily as the original Honda pipes and even ...

3in1 Copper Grease

3in1 Copper Grease, £4.99 What’s good: Copper grease is incredibly useful stuff. It prevents nuts and bolts rusting together, resists high temperatures and is water resistant. It’s ideal for applications such as exhaust manifold bolts, but be careful – it’s easy to over-tighten a lubricated bolt. What’s bad: I can’t think of any application where you’d need a lot of copper ...
