Product review: Knox Venture Shirt

Marc Abbott, 25 June 2012 13:57

Knox Venture Shirt, £109.99Time used: Four weeks What’s good: This Lycra shirt contains CE-approved elbow and shoulder armour plus a hard protector. It’s excellent. I wear it beneath my Barbour International which for me lacks just one thing – protection. After a very big crash at the tail-end of last year, I decided it was time to take protection seriously ...

(plus £39.95 for Warm-pile liner) Miles covered/time: 1800/four months.  

 What’s good: Some motorcycling garments have the magical ability to make you feel a million dollars as soon as you pull them on. The Barbour International is one such garment. Seventy-six years of heritage, the often imitated tartan lining, slanted breast pocket, brass buttons and belt ...

Perfecto turns on the style

Marc Abbott, 01 December 2011 10:36

Fifty-eight years after Marlon Brando famously donned the Schott Perfecto leather jacket in the Wild One (launching a sub-culture in the process) the classic style is back. They might not be the most protective on the bike (but let’s face it, armour wasn’t widely used in 1953, either) but these two jackets, available next spring, look the business. The Handsome ...

Marc Abbott, 29 July 2011 14:18

Proskins Moto All-season Trouser Baselayer, £29.99 Miles covered/time: 1200/one month What’s good: Putting these trousers on for the first time will feel like slipping into a very thick pair of tights (don’t ask me how I know). Once you’re in, they’re designed to hug your legs (they’re compression-wear, so designed to reduce muscle fatigue – handy for track days and ...

Tucano Urbano Steve jacket

Marc Abbott, 29 July 2011 14:06

Tucano Urbano Steve jacket, from £91 Miles covered/time: 1260/two months What’s good: There are very few jackets in my wardrobe that I can honestly say suit both riding and casual wear. This Tucano Urbano motorcycle jacket is my favourite. It’s a tailored cut, and quite high-waisted at that, but if you can carry off the slimline look the curiously named ...
