Product Review: Spada ST1 WP boots

Simon Brown, 11 June 2014 08:56

Spada ST1 WP boots, £99.95 Time tested: 1800 miles/two months What’s good? Reassuringly sturdy, these boots are both decent value at under £100 and packed with protection with hard plastic armour at the heel, shin and ankle – plus very solid-feeling toe protection. I have actually fallen off in them, but it was only a low-speed topple after a van ...

Gloves Review: Rukka Apollo gloves

Simon Brown, 19 July 2013 11:39

Rukka Apollo gloves, £169.99 Time used: Two years/8000 miles What’s good? Decent gloves can make-or-break a ride… and these are very good indeed. Comfortable from the word go, they are armoured with hard protection over the knuckles and a carbon section on the heal of your hand – the point that is likely to grind the Tarmac first  (happily, I’ve ...

Boot review: TCX Airtech Gore-Tex

Simon Brown, 21 September 2012 16:56

TCX Airtech Gore-Tex boots, £169.99Miles covered/time: 4500/18 months What’s good: Really lightweight and comfortable – for summer touring and commuting these boots are hard to beat. They’re made from a breathable heavy-duty nylon called Airtech and do a good job of keeping your feet cool. Meanwhile, the sole has enough flex to be comfortable while you are walking around off ...

Product review: Rukka jacket and trousers

Simon Brown, 05 September 2012 10:04

Rukka jacket/trousers (superseded, try  Arma-S £1099/£769)Miles covered/time: 15,000/five years What’s good: Liner in, vents zipped up, winter rain… liner out, vents zipped open, summer sun… this truly is all-weather riding gear. More than five years of almost daily use and my Rukka gear is still in great condition. It has never leaked and all the zips and fasteners have remained ...

Glove review: Rukka Apollo

Simon Brown, 09 July 2012 14:26

Rukka Apollo gloves, £169.99Miles covered/time: 7000/two years What’s good: These could well be the best gloves I’ve ever worn. Not only are they splendidly comfortable with excellent feel for my bike’s controls, they are also waterproof and breathable thanks to the Gore-Tex membrane. Better still, there is hard armour over the knuckles (but it’s under the leather, so looks subtle ...

Jacket review: Germot Oxford wax jacket

Simon Brown, 09 July 2012 13:19

Germot Oxford wax jacket, £239.99Miles covered/time: 2000/three months What’s good: This jacket combines retro charm with a degree of 21st century protection and I really love wearing it – it’s a jacket that genuinely does look good both on the bike and at the pub, too. A Barbour-wearing colleague has taken to wearing an armoured vest under his traditional style ...

Boot review: Hein Gericke Rallye

Simon Brown, 30 April 2012 11:52

Hein Gericke Rallye Boots (superseded by Rallye III, £219.99)Miles covered/time: 5000/five years What’s good: Brilliantly rugged, these are the boots I pick when the conditions turn really nasty. Reassuringly thick leather and Gericke’s Hiprotec armour offer confidence and the grippy sole allows plenty of purchase on damp, slippery footpegs. Gore-Tex keeps you dry and the buckle-style fasteners are secure while ...

Lazer Monaco carbon-fibre flip-up helmet

Simon Brown, 15 December 2011 11:08

Lazer Monaco flip-up, £324.95 Miles covered/time: 800/two months What’s good: Made from carbon-fibre, this helmet feels incredibly light. Lazer claim 1350g, which makes it substantially lighter than the 1500g Shoei Qwest I normally favour. The flip-up mechanism is easy to use; just press a button on the underside of the chinbar and up she goes – which saves taking my ...

Cold Killers Wind Buddy

Simon Brown, 02 November 2011 12:59

Cold Killers Wind Buddy £64.99 Miles covered/time: 500/two months What’s good: Now the cold mornings are here, I’m using this zip-up top more and more – and it’s meant I’ve been able to delay the evil moment when I have to dig out the thermal linings for my winter gear. On the bike it’s very comfortable and warm – I’ve ...

Forcefield Pro L2K back protector

Simon Brown, 27 October 2011 10:35

Forcefield Pro L2K back protector, £104.99 Miles covered/time: 1000/two months What's good: I'm in the fortunate position of not having crashed recently, but if it does happen this back protector ought to prevent soft tissue damage and the like. I'm basing that assumption on its reassuringly sturdy feel and that fact it's passed CE Level 2 testing, which is the ...
