Glove review: EXO² StormGuard heated gloves

Michael Neeves, 20 February 2012 15:52

EXO² StormGuard heated gloves, £139.99Time used: Three months What’s good: These leather gloves, with carbon Kevlar palm and knuckle protectors, would keep you nice and warm, even without the added heating. They’re comfy and not too bulky, so you’ve still got good feel for the brake, clutch and throttle. They don’t have a separate battery pack, so you have to ...

Product review: Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance layer

Michael Neeves, 19 December 2011 10:41

Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance Top (£69.99) and Bottoms (£49.99)Miles covered/time: 12,000/five months What’s good: This two-piece undersuit makes wearing one and two-piece leathers very comfortable and easy to slip-off, even on a hot and sweaty day. The Dryarn material is very lightweight and it’s a figure-hugging, muscle-supporting compression fit, too, which Alpinestars say helps to reduce fatigue. I’ve been wearing ...

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex trousers £249.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: These Gore-Tex touring trousers are really warm, comfortable, easy to move around in and very well-made.

Michael Neeves, 30 November 2011 15:55

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex jacket £349.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: This superbly-made, comfortable touring jacket will be my constant companion over the winter months. I’ve already used it loads for MCN testing duties, worn it on a holiday to France in the early summer (when it was still cold) and am now commuting with it. It’s lovely and warm, but ...

Product review: Proguard Custom Fleximonitors earphones

Michael Neeves, 30 November 2011 15:28

Proguard Custom Fleximonitors earphones, £239.95Miles covered/time used: 2000/two months What’s good: They block out as much noise as a good foam earplug (and actually more than the firm’s own custom earplugs) and let you listen to your music. These earphones are what I’ve spent my biking life looking for and I’m really impressed. Even in-ear headphones are almost inaudible over ...

Michael Neeves, 23 November 2011 11:33

Proguard Motorcyclists custom-fit earplugs, £125.99Miles covered/time: 3000/two months What’s good: These soft, medical-grade silicon earplugs are custom made to suit the individual and the price includes having a foam mould taken of your ears at a local FlexGuard centre. They post the earplugs out to you two weeks later. They (or ‘it’ in my case – I’m deaf in one ...

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses

Michael Neeves, 08 September 2011 09:47

Oakley V46 Signature Holbrook sunglasses, £105 Time used: Two months What’s good: Worn by the good Doctor Rossi, these shades won’t make you ride like him, give you access to his immense wealth, or look like him – although maybe that’s a good thing. They have a polished black frame, ‘warm grey’ lenses, yellow ‘O’ and VR46 logos and come ...

Michael Neeves, 30 August 2011 14:06

Muc-off Dirty Work Wipes, £2.99 for pack of 15 Time used: Three months What's good: These cleaning wipes are designed not only for your hands, but they'll clean anything from tools to bike parts, thanks to its textured surface, which lets it 'scrub' whatever you’re cleaning. They're an essential part of my toolbox when I'm racing or at trackdays, when ...

Kappa TK749 tankbag

Michael Neeves, 30 August 2011 13:49

Kappa TK749 tankbag, £75.49 Time used: Three months What's good: I've used this magnetic tank bag on my Suzuki GSX-R750, on a trip to the TT and a weekend away in Le Touquet, France. With all its sections attached and unfolded it's a triple-decker tank bag and has 34-litre’s worth of space. There’s a nice big transparent map pocket, which ...
