kit review: TCX SS Sport Waterproof boots

Product: TCX SS Sport Waterproof boots, £210 (£144.99 on MCN shop) Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good? I've barely started my relationship with these boots but TCX used to be Oxtar and I had a pair of them for two years without trouble. These sit on the stiff, creaky, protective end of the spectrum. The plastic loop ...

Kit review: Triumph Alpinestars AS1 gloves

Triumph Alpinestars AS1 gloves, £84 Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good? When I lost my six-year-old Nankai race gloves I spent ages finding something that would fit as perfectly. There’s a lot of rubbish out there. I tried and ditched three makes due to baggy palms, tight knuckles and excessive venting. Fit is personal, of course, but ...

Kit review: Hein Gericke Hi-Viz jacket

Hein Gericke Hi-Viz jacket, £180 Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 15,000/six years What’s good? It’s my only winter suit, and after two washes (yeah, I know it needs another one) it remains waterproof and warm-ish. The trousers (not shown) are black with a bib-and-braces set-up, and the whole thing fits snugly. Velcro bicep tags minimise flappage and keep mirrors unobscured. ...

Review: BLH RS7 gloves

BLH RS7 gloves, £50 Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 1500/2 months What’s good? In that hot spell in June, what you really needed were short, cool gloves. I for one was glad to take a hit on protection to stay cool and avoid the usual two-minute wrist-clamping Velcro palaver. If we ever see the sun again, I’ll get them back ...

Review: Arai Astro R

Arai Astro R, £330 Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 20,000/2 years What’s good? It’s an Arai. I’ve had them since 1987 and I can’t stop now. They are nice to wear; exceedingly beautiful to look at, own and clean; and they work. Irritatingly, Arai jiggled about with their headforms a few years ago, so the Astro R didn’t correspond to ...

Review: Crowtree made-to-measure jacket

Crowtree made-to-measure jacket, £340 Tester: Rupert Paul Miles covered/time: 150,000/16 years What’s good? How about these are the toughest leathers in the world? Because they are. I once saw a crash from a radar-certified 172mph where the Crowtree-clad rider, Mark Forsyth, tumbled and slid to a standstill. I thought he was dead. In fact, he’d just cut his finger. Another ...
