Glove review: Alpinestars S-1

Alpinestars S-1 gloves, £115Miles covered/time: 1000miles/two months What's good: Short gloves are ideal for commuting or wearing with a jacket that has tight or bulky cuffs, especially textile jackets. These S-1 gloves are superbly made with hard knuckle and finger armour and a small amount of ventilation across the back of the hand. Unlike a lot of short gloves they're ...

Jacket review: Belstaff Trialmaster

Belstaff Trialmaster jacket £379.99Miles covered/time: 3000 miles/four months What’s good? Modern motorcycle clothing and clothing for the ‘normal’ world don’t often mix well, especially when it comes to waterproofs. Despite Italy’s best efforts, wear a waterproof bike jacket down the pub and people will point. That’s not surprising when the majority look as if they belong to an eastern European ...

Glove review: Held Akira Tex

What’s good? Perfect for a typical British summer. These waterproof  gloves give a featherlite touch on the bars but with a Pukka Gore-Tex lining. They also feature a rubber visor wiper stiched along the left index finger, something all waterproof and winter gloves should come with. Compare and buy motorcycle gloves What’s not? I don’t know whether it’s due to ...

Boot Review: Dainese Torque In

What’s good? Understated and fairly plain in construction the Torque In boots can be worn under jeans or Dainese leather trousers specifically designed to go over them (they attach to Velcro patches on the shin). The rear entry system makes getting these boots on and off a breeze though they’re comfortable enough to wear throughout the day if you need ...

Review: Solvent-based visor cleaners

What's bad? They're a waste of the world's resources and completely pointless. The only thing you need to clean a visor is water, kitchen towel and five minutes. If your visor is caked in insect debris you could use a spot of washing up liquid. Place the smallest amount on a towel (tear resistant ones are best), wet the towel, ...

Helmet review: Shoei Hornet DS

What's good? Stylish Off-road look but with all the practical touches of a road lid. Vents on the brow and rear of the helmet give a good flow of air, the chin vent less so but I've yet to suffer misting even without the supplied pin lock insert. The large peak features big cutaways in the crown allowing air to ...

Review: Aerostich small fleece bag

ProductAerostich small fleece bag £6 (small size) TesterPed Baker Time owned6000 miles/5 years What's good? The modern tank bag is usually a mess of Ipods, phones, sat navs and associated clutter. These bags separate the mess and the thick fleece material cushions delicate screens against damage. The bags come in threedifferent colours for easy identification in a panic. What's not? ...

Gerbing heated vest review

Gerbing heated vest, £126.25 Time owned:10,000 miles/seven yearsWhat’s good:In seven years this heated waistcoat has never let me down. It’s short enough to wear under a leather jacket to keep spring chills at bay but has a high enough heat output for 200mile sub zero epics. The heated collar negates the need for bulky winter neck tubes. Takes five minutes ...

Suit review: Aerostich Roadcrafter suit

Best bits: The top-to-bottom zip arrangement means you can get in or out of the suit in less than ten seconds and it fits over your normal clothes. The fabric is more substantial than any other textile garment I’ve owned including premium brands like Rukka. Compare and buy motorcycle clothing Worst bit: Since the bankers stole all the money the ...

Tankbag review: Held Task tankbag

Best thing about it: Cavernous, superbly made and waterproof. 15 litres capacity is enough to fit a change of clothes and shoes for a daily commute or alternatively all the phone, sat nav, chargers, documents, maps and dry socks needed for a touring holiday. Fits on the tank or pillion seat with webbing straps plus hidden, padded straps convert it ...
