Glove review: Clover RS-4

Best thing about it: Beautifully made glove and because they’re kangaroo they weigh nothing and have so much feel. The wrap-around carbon-wrist guard gives piece of mind, and looks proper trick.

Boot review: Puma 1000

Best thing about it: When your foot is in it, it’s one of the most comfortable boots I’ve worn. Loads a feel through the sole, very water-resistant for a non-WP boot and all the Puma kit has a certain stylish stigma attached. Worst thing about it: The ratchet across the back of the boot can sometimes loop over the top ...
