Product Review: Sidi Mag-1 Boots

Richard Newland, 16 July 2014 10:30

Sidi Mag-1, £279.99 Time tested: 1400 miles / two months What’s good? The fit on Sidi’s new Mag-1 is fantastic. The micrometric fasteners allow you to ratchet the three key fitting points to perfection for every ride, regardless of how thick your socks are, or whether you’re wearing them inside jeans, or outside leathers. It takes a few journeys to ...

Product Review: R&G Racing single-sided paddock stand

Richard Newland, 02 July 2014 08:30

R&G Racing single-sided paddock stand, £134.98 Time Tested: Two years What’s good? What really attracted me to this R&G stand was the bearing-mounted pin that slides into the bike’s hub. I already had a functional, if old and slightly ugly, single-sided paddock stand for my Ducati 996, but it had a fixed pin. Why does this matter? Well, storage aside, ...

Product Review: TCX S-R1 Gore-Tex boots

Richard Newland, 11 June 2014 09:00

TCX S-R1 Gore-Tex boots, £249.99 Time tested: 4 months/ 400 wet miles What’s good? They work. Even in really persistent heavy rain, they’ve not let in a single drop of water. I even resorted to the garden hose to give them a thorough pressurised soaking from all angles in an attempt to show a weakness, but they remained utterly watertight. ...

Product Review: Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest

Richard Newland, 23 April 2014 13:30

Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest, £149.99 Time tested: 3000 miles / 12 months What’s good? This is the only item of heated clothing I’ve ever owned, so my frame ofreference isn’t as strong as it could be, but I can categorically confirm that having a heated layer is a darn sight more toasty than not having a heated layer. I ...

Product Review: Laser Fuel Transfer Hose

Richard Newland, 09 April 2014 10:30

Laser Fuel Transfer Hose, £15 Time tested: Six months What’s good? Anyone who has ever tried to siphon fuel by sucking on a length of hose (do your own jokes) will know that it leaves a rather unpleasant taste in your mouth – even if you don’t get a mouthful of petrol. Anything that removes the misery of that has ...

Product Review: Shark Race-R Pro Carbon

Richard Newland, 25 March 2014 11:30

Shark Race-R Pro Carbon, £499.99 Time tested: Three months / 3,500 miles What’s good? I’m not known for swapping helmet brands on a regular basis, but after nearly 20 years exclusively wearing one brand I thought it was time to broaden my horizons a little. I last tried a Shark on when Foggy was dominating WSB, but couldn’t get on ...

Product Review: Oxford Chill-Out Socks

Richard Newland, 18 March 2014 11:30

Oxford Chill-Out Socks, £16.99 Time tested: Two years / 5000 miles What’s good? They work. Keeping feet warm can be a real struggle in the depths of winter, and while a busy route will keep the blood pumping in your left foot as it dances on the gear lever, your right nearly always freezes first, and quickly. Eventually, the cold ...

Product Review: Held Cold Champ gloves

Richard Newland, 11 March 2014 11:00

Held Cold Champ gloves, £154.99 Time tested: Five months / 3500 miles What’s good? The Cold Champ is an exceptionally well-made leather and Gore-Tex winter glove from purveyors of fine and subtle bike kit, Held. The goatskin palm is so soft that you struggle to believe how strong it is, and the lining is equally duvet-like in its plush comfort. ...

Product Review: Oxford Maximiser 3800

Richard Newland, 11 February 2014 11:30

Oxford Maximiser 3800, £64.99 Time tested: Three years What’s good? If you, like me, have more than one bike in your garage, then keeping on top of battery maintenance can be a sporadic and fraught affair. It can also be rather expensive when the realisation dawns that you’ve let one die through neglect. This is where the Maximiser 3800 comes ...

Product Review: Oxford Chillout Jacket

Richard Newland, 04 February 2014 11:00

Oxford Chillout Jacket, £79.99 (£69.99 for thin people) Time tested: 5000 miles/12 months What’s good? I’m not a big fan of undersuits, or clever extra layers. Already being a gentleman of morbidly obese proportions, extra layers tend only to make my normal garments tighter, or make a nuisance of themselves by bunching up uncomfortably. So I was quite surprised that, ...
