Product review: Held Sakari

Adam Child, 25 February 2014 10:30

Held Sakari back protector, £79.99Tester: Adam ChildTime tested: 4000 miles/seven months What’s good? I can’t get used to huge back protectors that make it feel like I have a front door down the back of my leathers. I obviously want the protection, but not the obstruction. This Held back protector provides a great balance between the two - it’s easy ...

Product Review: Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves

Adam Child, 04 February 2014 11:00

Kushitani K-5162 GPR-6 gloves, £189.99 Time tested: 4000 miles/four months What’s good? The feel comfort and build quality is exceptional. The Kangaroo leather used on the palm is really soft, which gives excellent feel. These are some of the comfiest summer race gloves I’ve ever tried, ridden in. They’re very malleable and soft on the palm but are tough on ...

Product Review: Hein Gericke Pathan gloves

Adam Child, 28 January 2014 11:30

Hein Gericke Pathan gloves (superseded by Pathan Evo, £59.99) Time tested: 80,000 miles plus/6-7 years What’s good? I’ve called these gloves ‘old faithful’, as I always come back to my ‘Penguin’ gloves. They’re not attractive, but are 100% waterproof and warm. I’ve ridden all day in the worst rain possible and they’ve not even let in a drop. No gloves ...

Jacket Review: Acerbis LED Vision jacket

Adam Child, 23 September 2013 14:30

Acerbis LED Vision jacket, £59.95 Time tested: Four months/3000 miles What’s good? I can’t think of a better way of been seen in the dark of dull conditions than this jacket with embedded flashing LED lights, which has white lights on the front and red on the rear. Drivers really take notice. Other road users are more aware of your ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards

Adam Child, 02 September 2013 12:00

Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards, £89.99 Time tested: 800 miles/four months What’s good? These knee/shin guards are for downhill mountain biking, but I’ve been wearing them under denim jeans when riding on the road. I like riding in normal jeans and a leather jacket, especially in summer, but hate the lack of knee protection – so these guards give a little ...

Parts Review: Motrax Tyre Warmers

Adam Child, 19 August 2013 07:00

Motrax tyre warmers, under £200 (in 2003)Time tested: Ten years What’s good? These well-used warmers are around 10 years old, cost less than £200 new and still work like new. What a bargain. I’ve used them at the TT, North West 200, Oliver’s Mount and countless club race meetings and they’ve never let me down once. They’re not fancy, but ...

Boot Review: Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4

Adam Child, 07 May 2013 17:17

Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4 £149.99 Time tested: 20,000 miles/ 6+ years What’s good? As you can tell by the state of my Alpinestars boots they’ve had a hard life, but survived some real abuse. I occasionally wear them on the bike in summer, especially if I’m riding something under 250cc like a Honda CBR125 or scooter for example, but they’ve also ...
