Product Review: Alpinestars Supertech-R

Alpinestars Supertech-R, £359.99 Time tested: One North West 200 and TT fortnight (over 1000 racing miles) What’s good? The connection and feel is excellent. I put a huge amount of effort through the pegs and the last thing I want is for my foot to slip. At the TT you spend a huge amount of your time stood up on ...

Product Review: Scott Leathers one-piece race suit

Scott Leathers one-piece race suit, £899 Time tested: 17 TT laps (641.41 racing miles) What’s good? I love my made-to-measure Scott leathers. Not only do they look amazing in this tribute design to former World Superbike champion Scott Russell, but the fit is near-perfect thanks to being made to measure. And they’re not stupid money like some made-to-measure leathers. Scott ...

Product Review: Arai RX-7R, £599.99 helmet plus £500 paintjob

Arai RX-7R, £599.99 helmet plus £500 paintjob Time tested: North West 200 and TT fortnight What’s good? It’s the obvious choice at the TT, not just because the RX-7R is an excellent helmet but the back-up service at the TT from Arai is invaluable. After each session, including practice week, my Arai gets a full service, clean and check over. ...

Product review: Held Sakari

Held Sakari back protector, £79.99Tester: Adam ChildTime tested: 4000 miles/seven months What’s good? I can’t get used to huge back protectors that make it feel like I have a front door down the back of my leathers. I obviously want the protection, but not the obstruction. This Held back protector provides a great balance between the two - it’s easy ...

Product Review: Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves

Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves, £189.99 Time tested: 4000 miles/four months What’s good? The feel comfort and build quality is exceptional. The Kangaroo leather used on the palm is really soft, which gives excellent feel. These are some of the comfiest summer race gloves I’ve ever tried, ridden in. They’re very malleable and soft on the palm but are tough on ...

Product Review: Hein Gericke Pathan gloves

Hein Gericke Pathan gloves (superseded by Pathan Evo, £59.99) Time tested: 80,000 miles plus/6-7 years What’s good? I’ve called these gloves ‘old faithful’, as I always come back to my ‘Penguin’ gloves. They’re not attractive, but are 100% waterproof and warm. I’ve ridden all day in the worst rain possible and they’ve not even let in a drop. No gloves ...

Jacket Review: Acerbis LED Vision jacket

Acerbis LED Vision jacket, £59.95 Time tested: Four months/3000 miles What’s good? I can’t think of a better way of been seen in the dark of dull conditions than this jacket with embedded flashing LED lights, which has white lights on the front and red on the rear. Drivers really take notice. Other road users are more aware of your ...
