Marc Abbott, 03 January 2012 13:04

UPDATED REVIEW Vulcanet Bike Wipes, £33.99 (for an 80-wipe bottle) Time used: 10 months What’s good: When I first reported on these wipes, I’d been using them for two months. Initial findings were promising. In the intervening eight months I’ve come to rely upon them, using them to keep my Ducati Monster 1100 Evo in tip-top condition throughout the year, ...

Helmet review: Davida Jet helmet

Marc Abbott, 03 June 2010 16:07

Davida Jet helmet, £235  Miles covered/time: 900/two months What’s good? Off-white is the new black. I have never seen, let alone owned, a helmet that looked quite this cool straight out of the box.
