Spidi RR leather jacket

Dan Aspel, 26 September 2011 16:50

Spidi RR Leather Jacket, £440 Miles covered/time: 3000 miles/four months What’s good: Almost everything. The shoulder and elbow protection is so solid it feels like it’s carved out of wood, but the whole Spidi jacket is so comfy, stylish and lightweight I seldom want to take it off (it is Italian, after all). The neoprene areas on the underside of ...

Dan Aspel, 23 August 2011 17:01

Hein Gericke Tricky IV jacket & trousers, £349.99 and £249.99Miles covered/time: 2400/three weeks What’s good: Leatherman… Saab… North Face and now… Hein Gericke. The German outfit joins the list of brands that I trust and respect. I took this suit to Switzerland this summer and it withstood five days of torrential rain. My equally Gore-Tex-equipped boots and gloves – from ...

Held Fame biker jeans

Dan Aspel, 14 June 2011 12:44

Held Fame biker jeans, £89.99 Miles covered/time: 1000/two months What’s good: Don’t let the two-star rating fool you. As jeans, these Held Fame jeans are fantastic. They’re extremely comfy, very warm, and suit the jeans-and-jacket biking look perfectly. I’ve enjoyed wearing them for commuting as they’re unobtrusive and I like how versatile and low key they are in comparison to leathers. Held ...

Dan Aspel, 11 January 2011 17:08

Revit Factor 2 trousers, £129.99 (£119.99 on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 1600/two months What’s good? The worst kit is obtrusive, the best kit just lets you get on with riding. When I’m wearing the Factor 2s I just don’t think about them at all, and that’s the biggest compliment I can pay to a piece of biking gear. Save cash on ...

Dan Aspel, 29 December 2010 10:00

Draggin’ Oilskins jeans, £159.99Dan Aspel Miles covered/time: 700/one month   What’s good? Draggin’ market their products as being the most safety conscious jeans you can buy. Stitched and lined with Kevlar, they’re like your regular jeans only better. These have the added benefit of being water resistant.What’s not? It’s hard to see the point of the Oilskins. They’re neither warm nor ...

Kit review: IXS leather jacket

Dan Aspel, 06 October 2010 14:13

IXS leather jacket, £119.99 (superseded by X-Jacke Beaver / Heritage / Caldera) Miles covered/time: 6000 miles/one year What’s good? There are two schools of motorcycle fashion. The first is to look like a colour blind peacock, the other is to look mean and weathered. This jacket is king of the latter category. It’s a big, heavy, black leather piece of ...

Kit review: EDZ All Season Base Layer

Dan Aspel, 17 September 2010 14:30

EDZ All Season Base Layer, £20Miles covered/time: 2300 miles/two monthsWhat’s good? It’s an extremely soft and lightweight piece of clothing that negates the friction you naturally feel under heavy biking gear. In fact, it’s so comfortable I often wear it underneath my everyday clobber, not just my leathers! It retains a lot of warmth, despite being so thin, and wicks ...

Motorcycle gear review: Rev It Warp Jacket

Dan Aspel, 24 August 2010 16:04

Rev It Warp Jacket, £119.99 Miles covered/time: 10,000/one year What’s good? It’s lightweight, waterproof, comfy, warm, adaptable… and not expensive. The cosy, smoking jacket-esque lining keeps you warm even in January, and when it’s removed (and the excellent vents unzipped) it becomes a very attractive summer option. The pockets are secure, spacious and numerous too. In fact they’re everywhere. This ...
