Product Review: Knox Handroid CE gloves

Knox Handroid CE gloves, £169.99 Time tested:  North West 200 and TT fortnight (1000 miles) What’s good? This is the third time I’ve worn Knox gloves at the TT, and these are the second generation gloves that are now CE-approved.

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: 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: 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 ...

Simply Ballistic: Can MV's new Dragster 800 out-gun its rivals?

The MV Agusta Dragster is the latest model to come from the iconic Italian brand – and it's a bit of a confused beast. Using the 798cc triple and cycle parts from the Brutale 800 roadster, it has a design similar to that of Ducati's Diavel performance cruiser and even runs a huge 200-section rear Pirelli, but more for aesthetic ...

Norton TT Racer On The Road

You can’t underestimate how hard it is to compete at the Isle of Man TT. It’s a mammoth task, and it’s almost impossible to convey with mere words the sheer scale of the mountain they have climbed, figuratively, and over the top of the island. But forget about the riding for a second; the logistics, planning and organisation alone are ...
