Held Titan sports gloves

Trevor Franklin, 08 September 2011 09:38

Held Titan sports gloves £216.99 (plus £65.10 made to measure fee) Miles covered/time: 6000+/nine months What’s good: More construction detail than a model aircraft. Here are some highlights: pre-curved palms and fingers don’t cause ‘bunch-up’, use of abrasion-resistant stingray leather in key areas, a serious amount of shock absorbing and strengthening material hidden under panels, a connecting bridge between the ...

Ogio TY Video 2 backpack

Trevor Franklin, 07 September 2011 16:19

Ogio TY Video 2 backpack, £99.99 Miles covered/time: 5000+/five months What’s good: The carrying capacity of 49 litres and the strong, well thought-out design have made this backpack as essential as my leathers, crash helmet etc. Put another way it can hold everything I need for an average day. I’m talking big Nikon camera and spare lens, handheld video camera, ...

The Held Carese jacket is built from strong but flexible top-flight 500D Cordura with approved armour in all contact areas and has a ...

Trevor Franklin, 17 September 2010 14:30

Mack’s Pillow Soft earplugs, £4.29 for two pairsMiles covered/time: 500/one week  What's good? I'm always up for trying something different from the norm otherwise life would be truly static and boring. So rather than spend the rest of life wedging various grades of foam billets into my lugholes, the idea of silicone putty being used to silence windrush seemed kinda ...

Backpack review: KTM Epic

Trevor Franklin, 10 September 2010 17:50

KTM Epic backpack £63.35Miles covered/time: 11,000/nine months What’s good? Made exclusively by Ogio for KTM, this rucksack has stood the test of winter, spring, something akin to summer and around 11,000 miles. It’s been laden to the brim with tools and other man-stuff in every one of its four main two-way zip-sealed compartments and not popped a stitch. And it ...

Motorcycle gear review: Pro-Bolt Progauge bolt measure tool

Trevor Franklin, 24 August 2010 16:30

Pro-Bolt Progauge bolt measure tool £4.99 Time used: Six months What’s good? When you’ve amassed several tins of bolts (new and used) over the years it’s good to sort them into sizes and store them in old ice cream or margarine tubs. Similarly, when replacing original engine and component bolts for lightweight alloy items, it makes life easy when ordering ...

Trevor Franklin, 23 July 2010 15:18

Shoei XR-1100 helmet, £299 (plain colours), £379 (graphics)Miles covered/time: 18,000/nine months What’s good? The sales assistant’s golden rule for buying a crash helmet is: If you’ve a ten-bob head then buy a ten-bob helmet.

Boot review: Alpinestars Supertech R

Trevor Franklin, 07 May 2010 16:44

Alpinestars Supertech R boots, £299.95 (non-vented)Miles covered/time: 2000/four months What’s good? Out of the box, they’re as comfy as 10-year-old boots. This is due mainly to the amount of synthetic material used in their construction that, unlike leather, doesn’t require ‘breaking in’. This comfort-feel also takes in off the bike walking. Save cash on motorcycle boots The covering panel on ...
