Product Review: Shark Raw Helmet

Shark Raw Helmet Price: £189.99-£229.99 Miles covered/time: Over 1300 miles/seven months What’s good?

TomTom Rider: £349.99 Time tested: 6500 miles/9 months What’s good? It’s pretty simple to fit so within 30 minutes I was sitting on my bike, TomTom Rider mounted neatly on the handlebars, powered from the bike’s 12v supply and connected via Bluetooth to my helmet intercom (paired up in a matter of minutes.)

Product Review: Macna Savage textile jacket

Macna Savage textile jacket, £169.99 Time tested: 1600 miles/five months What’s good? I’d never heard of Macna until last year, but this jacket has impressed me for its mixture of subtle looks and effective performance. It’s warm with the thermal liner in, cool with it out and even cooler still with the vents unzipped. It has reflective patches that stand ...

Product Review: Oxford Boss Alarm disc lock

Oxford Boss Alarm disc lock, £74.99Time tested: Five months What’s good?  Bright, chunky and clearly marked as alarmed, this ticks all the boxes as a visible deterrent for thieves, and with its big 14mm shackle, it’s not going to be removed in a hurry without some pretty hardcore tools. It’s got a built-in alarm that’s easy to activate – just ...

Boots Review: TCX S-Race boots

TCX S-Race boots, £129.99 (special deal on tested: 15,000 miles/three years What’s good? There’s a balance to be struck between heavy-duty protection and everyday practicality and, for me, these TCX boots strike it perfectly.

Schuberth SR1 crash helmet, £529.00 (plain), £599.99 to £649.99 (colours) Time tested: 1500 miles/five weeks What's good? Day one was horrible.

Helmet Review: HJC RPHA Max flip-front helmet

HJC RPHA Max flip-front helmet, £359.99 Tester: Tony Hoare Miles/time: 1800 miles/one month What’s good? I’ve shied away from flip-up lids because I don’t like the image, but the RPHA Max soothed those concerns enough for me to use it on an 1800-mile trip to Italy. It’s essentially HJC’s RPHA10 race helmet, but with the convenience of a flip-front helmet. ...
