Glove review: Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex

Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex gloves £169.99Time used: Three years What’s good: These are the best gloves I’ve ever had.

Motul M4 Hands Clean

Motul M4 Hands Clean, £5.55 Time used: Two months What’s good: I’ve been using this hand cleaner when I’ve been racing and it’s a very handy addition to the toolbox.
