Product Review: Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Jacket

Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Jacket: £169.99Time tested: Six months/4000-miles. What’s good? I’ve been wearing this textile jacket for the summer season, including a 3000-mile riding holiday down to Portugal on my Hyperstrada. It’s light, comfortable and the mesh construction keeps you cool in the very hot weather, but thanks to a removable, windproof inner-lining it keeps you warm in chilly ...

Product Review: Clarke Mechanic’s chair

Clarke Mechanic’s chair, £26.99Time used: 2013 racing season What’s good? This has got to be one of the best racing accessories I own – so much so that when I asked someone to pack it in a van for a foreign trackday, and they forgot, I sulked for four days. Unless you’re lucky enough to have an expensive ramp, this ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Racing Rain two-piece oversuit

Alpinestars Racing Rain two-piece oversuit, £129.99Time used: Two racing seasons What’s good? Designed to be worn over the top of race leathers, I’ve been using this two-piece rain suit for racing the last couple of years. It’s obviously good to keep dry when you’re racing – you’re warmer and more comfortable, which means you can concentrate more on what you’re ...

Product Review: Ion Air Pro 2 video camera

Ion Air Pro 2 video camera: £299.99Time used: Six months What’s good? I’ve been using this to create footage for MCN videos and long termer blogs. It’s a solid, well-made waterproof unit and very easy to switch on and off when you’re riding – almost impossible to do easily with the class-leading GoPro. The HD videos it produces is excellent ...

Boots Review: Alpinestars SMX Plus Gore-Tex

Alpinestars SMX Plus Gore-Tex: £299.99Time used: One yearWhat’s good? They’re warm, comfortable, completely waterproof, sturdy, beautifully-made and don’t look big and frumpy, like a lot of all-weather boots can do. These are my everyday boots, which toured across Europe, been on countless road-riding launches, come with me to work and have been my companion on many a weekend away. I’ve ...

Parts Review: BMW HP Race tyre warmers

BMW HP Race tyre warmers: £765 Time used: Three race meetings and two trackdays What’s good? They’re light and beautifully made with heating coming from a patented carbon-fibre mesh that gives a uniform spread of temperature, compared to conventional tyre warmers with filament wires running through them. Crucially, BMW says they put 15% more heat into the tyre shoulders. They’re ...

Product Test: Go Pro HD Hero 2 camera

Go Pro HD Hero 2 camera, £299.99 Tester: Michael Neeves Time tested: 30,000 miles/one year What’s good? Go-Pro video cameras are easy to use and produce clear, top-quality images. I’ve been using mine for MCN road tests and videos of my racing for a year. With the bracket-mounts and suction cups, the trick is find the most unusual place to ...

Product review: Proguard Fleximonitors custom earphones

Proguard Fleximonitors custom earphones, £219.00Time used: One year What’s good: This is my second review of these custom moulded in-ear headphones and I’m even more impressed with them a year on. They’re made from rubbery plastic using a mould taken from your ear. They do two things: block out as much noise as a normal foam earplug and let you ...

Accessory Review: Oxford Blanket

Oxford Blanket £9.49 Time used: One month What’s good? This anti-slip matting is really handy and at just under a tenner for a 600 x 900mm sheet, you get a lot for your money. I’ve been using it on the tank and back seat of my Ducati Streetfighter 848 long termer to stop my tailpack and tank bag moving around ...

Leathers review: Alpinestars Racing Replica one-piece

Alpinestars Racing Replica one-piece suit. £1999.99Time used: One year What’s good: These protected me from serious injury a few weeks ago after a cold tyre highside going in to Graham Hill bend at Brands Hatch, on my race bike. It was one of those crashes when I fell from a great height rather than speed, so it’s more about how ...
