Jacket review: Held Rezzato

Chris Newbigging, 01 October 2010 17:44

Held Rezzato £749.99Miles covered/time: 2500/four months What’s good? It’s leather, but waterproof. It’s not sorcery – just effective use of the Gore-Tex waterproof/breathable membrane. I’ve been lucky enough to only get caught in the rain three or four times, but the jacket hasn’t leaked. Save £££s on motorcycle jackets Remove the insulating liner and it’s cool enough for really hot ...

Leathers review: Berik 8320 one-piece suit

Chris Newbigging, 10 September 2010 17:41

Berik 8320 one-piece suit, £499.99 Miles covered/time: Three months/1000 milesWhat’s good? Fit, style, price and protection. Disappointingly I’d only spent a 1000 miles in this suit before gravel came between the road and my tyres, and I came to earth with a heavy thump at 35mph, sliding across rough tarmac chippings into a ditch. Save cash on motorcycle leathers The ...

Motorcycle gear review: Kriega US-20 tailpack

Chris Newbigging, 24 August 2010 16:22

Kriega US-20 tailpack, £59Miles covered/time: 18 months/2000 miles What’s good? This is one of those products that gives me joy to use when the need arises – the two straps wrap around the bottom of a pillion seat, clip the seat back in place and tighten the straps. It’s fantasically easy to fit – even on modern sports bikes with ...

Leathers review: Berik 7932 1-piece

Chris Newbigging, 25 November 2009 18:00

Product: Berik 7932 1-piece £699Miles covered/time: 2000/four races/three trackdays What’s good? When I first got these, I suspected they could be just fashion leathers – not up to the repeated rough and tumble that often accompanies club racing. But after binning my TZR250 three times in them – one of which was a heavy 80mph lowside, slide across tarmac and ...

Product review: Wurth Brake Cleaner/Air Intake Cleaner

Chris Newbigging, 18 September 2009 14:32

Product: Wurth Brake Cleaner/Air Intake Cleaner £4.99/canMiles covered/time: Three races/three months What’s good? They work – when it comes to the carburettors and brake calipers on my TZR250 race bike, I don’t want to mess around with anything that might damage it or impede performance. My calipers have no dust seals to minimise brake drag so it’s imperative that they’re ...

Kit review: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector

Chris Newbigging, 10 September 2009 17:29

Product: Impact Safe-T Armor chest protector £76 (plus delivery from USA)Miles covered/time: Four race meets/four monthsWhat’s good? Because you don’t tend to hit your chest as hard as other parts of your body, the Safe-T Armor chest protector is thin for comfort – dense foam with a layer of plastic on the front flexes around body and softens with heat. ...

Leathers review: Teknic Xcelerator suit

Chris Newbigging, 03 July 2009 13:01

Product name: Teknic Xcelerator suit, £799.99Miles covered/time: 3000/one year Compare and buy Teknic suits What’s good? The fit is amazing, and the part-kangaroo construction helps contribute to a lightweight feel. It’s heavily ventilated too, so for hard track sessions or racing you’re kept cool and your movement unhindered. I put the protection to the test too – highsiding a Fireblade ...

EDZ All-Season Base Layer review

Chris Newbigging, 28 May 2009 14:09

EDZ All-Season Base Layer, £50 Miles covered:5000/two yearsWhat’s good? I won’t wear one-piece leathers without this – it’s become indispensable. It helps getting in and out of the suit, wicks sweat away and makes life much more comfortable. Suits never snag or pull on my skin because they’re not in direct contact. It works for off-roading, too. What’s not? It’s ...

Suit review: Hein Gericke PSX-R

Chris Newbigging, 22 April 2009 16:10

Best thing about it: The only waterproof clothing I’ve owned that’s comfortable on a sportsbike. It’s a ‘three season’ suit, so it’s not too thick, and the look/cut suits sportsbikes. Worst thing about it: Not warm enough below about 7° for any sort of speed or distance. It’d be fine around town with thermal base layers though. Compare and buy ...

Back protector review: Forcefield Pro L2

Chris Newbigging, 22 April 2009 15:18

Best thing about it: Safety – one big crash plus countless smaller moped racing crashes have been dealt with. Comfort is excellent - the rubber/foam mix softens with body heat to fit your back perfectly. Worst thing about it: Nothing – some might grumble at the price, but unlike a lot of back protectors it retains protection after a crash, ...
