Product review: Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance layer

Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance Top (£69.99) and Bottoms (£49.99)Miles covered/time: 12,000/five months What’s good: This two-piece undersuit makes wearing one and two-piece leathers very comfortable and easy to slip-off, even on a hot and sweaty day.

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses, £105 Time used: Two months What’s good: Worn by the good Doctor Rossi, these shades won’t make you ride like him, give you access to his immense wealth, or look like him – although maybe that’s a good thing.
