Gloves Review: Weise Victory gloves

Weise Victory gloves, £44.99 Time tested: 7000 miles/three months What’s good? They’re gloves for people who don’t really want to wear gloves. You won’t find a pair that imposes less of a barrier between hand and twistgrip. There are no clumsy gauntlets to fit over or under cuffs, just a Velcro wrist strap on the back. A degree of protection ...

Helmet Review: Arai Tour-X3 helmet

Arai Tour-X3 helmet, £349.99 (superseded by Tour-X4, £439.99) Time tested: 10,000 miles/two years What’s good? It's one helmet for everything. There's a detachable peak for off-roading, which fits over the visor, still allowing it to open and close. You can also fit the peak without the visor if goggles are your preference. Without the peak it's a road or track ...

Parts Review: Pattern mirrors, AW Motorcycle Parts

Pattern mirrors, AW Motorcycle Parts, £33.18 a pair including postage Time tested: 200 miles/one month What’s good? It's hard to find new genuine mirrors for 26-year-old bikes, and I dread to think the price. So I got pattern ones for my Kawasaki GPz550, readily available from online retailers. They all look the same on a computer screen, so I bought ...

Accessories Review: Akito medium kit bag

Akito medium kit bag, £10.99Time tested: 14 years What’s good? This is one those products that’s so good you take it for granted and forget about it. Then one day you think: ‘I’ve had that for 14 years and it’s as good as new.’ It’s been on every overseas bike test I’ve attended since 1999, as well as family holidays. ...

Rev’IT Defender GTX Gore-Tex suit

Rev’IT Defender GTX Gore-Tex suit, £879.98 (jacket £499.99, trousers £379.99)  Tester: Steve Farrell Time tested: 5000 miles/two years What’s good? This is one suit for road or trail, winter or summer. Removable lining and closable vents make it as useful in August as it is in December. Take the Gore-Tex lining out, and it’s cool enough for gentle off-roading, too. ...

Accessory Review: Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer

Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer, £5.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: One month/1000 miles What’s good? The trouble with waterproof attire is that, sooner or later, it stops being waterproof. No one wants to chuck a costly pair of boots. In theory, this spray saves you that pain. Spray it onto damp, clean leather, and ‘maximum waterproofing’ will be restored. Also ...

Boot review: Acerbis Profile X-Tight enduro and motocross boots

Acerbis Profile X-Tight enduro and motocross boots, £235Time used: 18 months What’s good: They’re tough enough to kick down walls but comfortable, too. There are only two clasps to fasten per foot, not half a dozen like some off-road boots. One clasp has a ratchet mechanism which makes it easy to get them nice and tight at the ankle. Some ...

Boot review: Rev’It Apache H2O touring boots

Rev’It Apache H2O touring boots, £164.99Miles covered/time: 2000/18 months What’s good: A key attraction of these boots is the look. They’re nicely styled from tough full-grain leather, with suede at the shin and calf. They’ve got a comfy, springy sole and a handle on the calf that makes them easy to pull on. They seem sturdy enough to provide a ...

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Cover

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Cover, £33.99Time used: One yearWhat’s good: Put them over any footwear and suddenly you have waterproof boots on. Take them off again and stuff them in your pocket, folded neatly and compactly in their own zip bag. Unlike some fold-away waterproof boots, they actually have a rubber sole, which means they don’t wear out the first ...

Product review: BMW bike cover

BMW bike cover, £64 Time used: 10 months What’s good: Typically of BMW accessories, it’s well designed and made. BMW supplied it when I had a G650GS as a long-term test bike. Now that’s gone but I still like to use this on my own motorcycles. It’s easily big enough to accommodate a middleweight with fairing and luggage rack. It’s ...
