Product review: Held Sakari

Held Sakari back protector, £79.99Tester: Adam ChildTime tested: 4000 miles/seven months What’s good? I can’t get used to huge back protectors that make it feel like I have a front door down the back of my leathers. I obviously want the protection, but not the obstruction. This Held back protector provides a great balance between the two - it’s easy ...

Product Review: Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves

Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves, £189.99 Time tested: 4000 miles/four months What’s good? The feel comfort and build quality is exceptional. The Kangaroo leather used on the palm is really soft, which gives excellent feel. These are some of the comfiest summer race gloves I’ve ever tried, ridden in. They’re very malleable and soft on the palm but are tough on ...

Product Review: Hein Gericke Pathan gloves

Hein Gericke Pathan gloves (superseded by Pathan Evo, £59.99) Time tested: 80,000 miles plus/6-7 years What’s good? I’ve called these gloves ‘old faithful’, as I always come back to my ‘Penguin’ gloves. They’re not attractive, but are 100% waterproof and warm.

Jacket Review: Acerbis LED Vision jacket

Acerbis LED Vision jacket, £59.95 Time tested: Four months/3000 miles What’s good? I can’t think of a better way of been seen in the dark of dull conditions than this jacket with embedded flashing LED lights, which has white lights on the front and red on the rear. Drivers really take notice. Other road users are more aware of your ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards

Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards, £89.99 Time tested: 800 miles/four months What’s good? These knee/shin guards are for downhill mountain biking, but I’ve been wearing them under denim jeans when riding on the road.

Motrax tyre warmers, under £200 (in 2003)Time tested: Ten years What’s good? These well-used warmers are around 10 years old, cost less than £200 new and still work like new. What a bargain. I’ve used them at the TT, North West 200, Oliver’s Mount and countless club race meetings and they’ve never let me down once. They’re not fancy, but ...
