Product Review: Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest

Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest, £149.99 Time tested: 3000 miles / 12 months What’s good? This is the only item of heated clothing I’ve ever owned, so my frame ofreference isn’t as strong as it could be, but I can categorically confirm that having a heated layer is a darn sight more toasty than not having a heated layer. I ...

Product Review: Arc-on Competizione gloves

Arc-on Competizione gloves, £140 Time tested: 16 weeks What’s good? This is a substantial glove with intimate feel and sensible design. It has a mountain of catalogue-topping spec – kangaroo hide, bomb-proof stingray inserts on the cuffs and palm, titanium and carbon knuckle armour, grippy Kevlar matting on finger tips and other contact points – but, crucially, none of it ...

Product Review: Halfords three assorted finishing pads

Halfords three assorted finishing pads, £2.99 Time tested: Two years What’s good? A paint sprayer friend of mine first showed me the many uses of these pads. Strictly speaking they’re for preparing surfaces prior to painting, however I’ve found them extremely useful for cleaning metal surfaces on my bike. Teamed with a squirt of brake cleaner, I gently rub clean ...

Product Review: Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits

Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits, £9.99 Time used: One week What’s good? From his domination of Aussie flat track to MotoGP, Casey Stoner’s autobiography is fascinating. His hero growing up was Mick Doohan and you get the feeling he’d rather GP bikes had remained 500cc two-strokes. He might have retired at just 27, but you quickly realise he’s done his ...

Product Review: AGV GT Veloce helmet

AGV GT Veloce helmet, £349.99 Time tested: Eight months/2000 miles/one big crash What’s good? I’m sat here writing this, with no apparent sign of a head injury, five days after throwing myself head-first at the Anglesey track surface at somewhere around 60mph and counting. I lost control of a Triumph Speed Triple R and was thrown over the top, landing ...

Product Review: Abus Detecto 7000 RS2 disc lock

Abus Detecto 7000 RS2 disc lock, £120 Time tested: Three years What’s good? As long as I have a little bit of room available in a bag, pannier, under the seat or in a topbox this disc lock goes with me as a visible and audible deterrent to scumbag thieves. It’s got great build quality, the key is small but ...

Product Review: Facom J.161 3/8in ratchet

Facom J.161 3/8in ratchet, £37.37 Time tested: Four years What’s good? The smooth operation of this dinky 3/8in Facom ratchet is a delight, and the fact it has 72 teeth in the ratchet means it will work in more confined spaces. The extra teeth (the equivalent in my perfectly serviceable Halfords set only has 45 teeth) means it doesn’t need ...

Product Review: Dainese T Avro race suit

Dainese T Avro race suit, £960 (now superseded by Aspide) Time tested/miles: Six months/2500 miles What’s good: The quality and fit of these leathers has been brilliant; even from the first time I put them on they were comfortable and with the stretchy panels on the legs, chest and arms it fitted brilliantly. The close fit ensures the armour isn’t ...

Product Review: Holroyd Race-Tech tyre warmers

Holroyd Race-Tech tyre warmers, £99 Time tested: Two years What’s good? Holroyd tyre warmers are certainly robust. Tyre warmers can really get put through it in the heat of a race weekend – torn off in a hurry, left in a heap on the floor, put away warm – and lesser warmers always end up only lasting half a season. ...

Product Review: MT Le-Mans helmet

MT Le-Mans helmet, £54.99 Time tested: Six months/ 400 milesWhat’s good? This is a quality open-face lid for a pretty amazing price from Spanish firm MT. The excellent, faux-leather lining is extremely well padded and because the EPS [expanded polystyrene] liner is of varying thickness across the circumference of the lid, MT have rid the helmet of unnecessary bulk.  The ...
