Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon glove

Michael Neeves, 03 August 2011 15:49

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 ...

Product review: Science in Sport Go electrolyte drink

Marc Abbott, 22 July 2011 14:23

Science in Sport Go electrolyte drink, £1.50Time used: Six months What’s good: Sports nutrition is fast becoming the new black – with racers like Cal Crutchlow swearing by this stuff. Basically, it’s a sachet of powder that you mix with half a litre of water, give it a shake, and Bob’s your uncle – zero dehydration, whether that’s on an ...

Suomy Vandal helmet

Liam Marsden, 13 July 2011 17:16

Suomy Vandal, £349.99Time owned/miles covered: Two months/2500 miles What's good? Suomys are generally tighter fitting than other brand helmets of the same size, but it means they don’t get too loose the more you wear them. Personally I prefer my helmet to be tight fitting. This is my second Suomy helmet and just like the first it fits my head like ...

Nexx XR1R Carbon helmet

Dan Aspel, 13 July 2011 15:09

Nexx XR1R Carbon helmet, £299.99Miles covered/time: 1000/two months What’s good: This is the best road helmet I’ve worn. The visor is very tall and broad, giving you a fantastic view of the road, sky, clocks and neighbouring lanes. It makes the slit-like view from my AGV Stealth SV feel like wearing Ned Kelly’s steel helmet in comparison. Unlike any other ...

“Charge” movie review: a must see motorcycle film

Dan Aspel, 24 June 2011 10:48

Last month saw the release of “Charge”, British director Mark Neale’s take on the 2009/2010 electric TT races. It’s currently only available on DVD in North America, but with further countries scheduled for release - and digital download options to follow - the makers sent MCN a copy for review. The result? We’re able to wholeheartedly recommend it as one ...

Alpinestars SPS gloves

Ian Jubb, 14 June 2011 13:19

Alpinestars SPS Gloves, £69.95 Miles covered/time: 4000/three years What’s good: They’re comfy beyond belief, like wearing your finest slippers. There’s a real feel of quality plus these Alpinestars gloves look really cool when rocking the ‘euro style’ of jacket and jeans on a nice summer’s evening. They’re great to have if it’s just a nip to the shops as they are ...

Dainese Torque In boots

Ped Baker, 23 May 2011 15:28

Dainese Torque In boots, £194.99 (now replaced by St Trq Race In £189.99) Miles covered/time: 10,000/18 months What's good: When I first reviewed these boots after six months use I wasn't exactly enamoured with them. The Dainese Torque In boot lacks frills with rear entry, titanium sliders and plastic ankle brace. At £194.99 they were expensive, too. But I've grown ...

HJC RPHA-10 helmet

Steve Farrell, 17 May 2011 09:40

HJC RPHA-10 helmet, £249.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop) Steve Farrell Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What's good: For me, the best thing is the fit. I’m sure I’m not alone in having an oval-shaped head. Many helmets which initially seem to fit cause an agonising pressure point on my forehead after an hour of wearing. The HJC RPHA-10, though, fits perfectly. ...
