Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon glove

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon glove, £54.95 Miles covered/time: 1300/three months What’s good: These wrist-length summer Alpinestars gloves are a mix of leather, mesh, with a carbon-fibre knuckle protector. I haven’t been able to wear them too much as they’re only good for sunny weather, but I’ve used them for a sunny Moto Guzzi launch in Italy with two-piece leathers, on a ...

Wolfson DS-101a noise-cancelling headphones

Wolfson DS-101a noise-cancelling headphones. £39.99Time used: Three months What’s good: I’ve always liked the idea of listening to music on long motorway journeys or boring commutes, but I also can’t ride without earplugs (actually, ear plug, I’m deaf in one ear), so I was keen to try these. I hoped they’d do the job of both. They’re ‘in-ear’ headphones, which ...

Kit review: Arai Tour-X

Arai Tour-X, £354.99 (plain white)Miles covered/time: 1500/two months What's good? I've worn this when testing adventure bikes and supermotos and if you remove the visor you can wear it with goggles and use it off-road, too. It's very versatile and I think is cool-looking. I thought the wind would get under the peak and try and yank the helmet up ...
