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 ...

Shock speedway GP winner as Brit world champ suffers

German racer Martin Smolinski took a shock victory in the opening round of the 2014 speedway world championship Grand Prix in New Zealand.  It was Smolinski's first-ever appearance in the Grand Prix after making it through the qualifying rounds, and there's not likely to be a bigger surprise this season than his win in his GP debut. The 29-year-old was ...

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: MT Revenge Evo helmet

MT Revenge Evo helmet, £79.99 Time tested: 1200 miles/three months What’s good? If you don’t have oodles of cash to spend, this lid delivers reasonable comfort and spec for £80. And it scores a maximum five stars in the UK Government-funded SHARP impact tests. The test scheme has its critics, but I think it’s a valuable safety net to stop ...
