Product Review: Bumpstop ground anchor

Steve Farrell, 23 August 2012 12:19

Bumpstop ground anchor, £49.99 Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good: It can be fitted to a wall just as easily as the ground, making the chain more difficult to attack by elevating it. The 10mm diameter bolts that secure it are impossible to reach with the chain in place. It’s relatively cheap but double-walled and tough looking. The manufacturer says the ...

Rev'It Apache boots

Steve Farrell, 05 October 2011 11:14

Rev’It Apache boots, £164.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/six months What's good: The way they look. The Rev'It Apache boots are like a cross between motorcycle boots and trainers, with nice styling touches like suede sections. From the ankle down they’re shaped more like a shoe than your typical touring boot. They’re warm, comfortable and have so far proved completely waterproof. A ...

Revit Defender GTX Gore-Tex adventure trousers

Steve Farrell, 14 September 2011 15:22

Revit Defender GTX Gore-Tex adventure trousers, £369.99 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: I recently reviewed Revit’s Defender GTX jacket. Now I’ve had a chance to test the matching trousers. They’re peerlessly versatile. Not only is the thermal lining removable, but the waterproof layer is, too. That proved very handy while off-roading on a hot day in the Brecon Beacons, ...

Rev It Defender GTX Gore-Tex jacket, £499.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: Three months/5000 miles What's good: It’s practical, protective, waterproof and supremely well made. As well as body armour in the usual places, there’s extra tough fabric over the elbows where abrasions are most likely. It’s got a decent removable thermal lining, lots of waterproof outside pockets (including a ...

Tyre review: Avon Roadrider

Steve Farrell, 11 January 2011 16:19

Avon Roadrider tyres, £115 (from £52.99 per tyre on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 1000/nine months What’s good? Having a 1980s bike doesn’t mean having to reply on 1980s rubber. These Avon Roadriders have brought my 1986 Kawasaki GPz550 up to date and are infinitely superior to the concrete-like tyres that were on it when I bought it. Save cash on motorcycle ...

Product review: Garmin Nuvi 550 Sat Nav

Steve Farrell, 16 February 2010 12:05

Garmin Nuvi 550 Sat Nav, £299.99 (£219.69 on MCN shop)Miles covered: 6000/one year Save money on bike kit in the MCN Shop What’s good? In the six months since I last reviewed this, it has proved capable of enduring shocking abuse. I dropped it while trying to do several things at once, and in a ham-fisted attempt to catch it, ...

New government helmet safety ratings

Steve Farrell, 14 April 2009 16:20

Safety ratings for 28 crash helmets have been unveiled by government testers. The helmets have been tested in the Department for Transport’s Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme (SHARP). The news is good if you own a Bell, whose helmet scored the maximum five, but bad if you own an RST PC1S, which scored just one.  The 28 new results bring ...
