Steve Farrell, 13 May 2013 08:52

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers, £33.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: 2000 miles/18 months What’s good? These really do make old boots waterproof again. They fold up into a zip bag not much bigger than a fat wallet, which is why they have ‘Nano’ in the name. They’re no less waterproof for it. I’ve never known them to let in a ...

Marc Abbott, 15 December 2011 11:58

Heat Holders Men’s Long Leg socks, £7 Time used: Two months. What’s good: Putting these socks on for the first time was a one of those rare revelatory motorcycle moments. They’re lining with a gloriously fleecy layer that has so far helped to keep my feet absolutely, 100% toasty in temperatures not far off freezing. They stretch to the top ...

Marc Abbott, 22 July 2011 14:23

Science in Sport Go electrolyte drink, £1.50Time used: Six months What’s good: Sports nutrition is fast becoming the new black – with racers like Cal Crutchlow swearing by this stuff. Basically, it’s a sachet of powder that you mix with half a litre of water, give it a shake, and Bob’s your uncle – zero dehydration, whether that’s on an ...

Lidl oil filter removal band

Simon Relph, 22 March 2011 14:19

Lidl oil filter removal band, £2.99 Time used: Four months What’s good: So many filters require special filter remover due to their inaccessible locations, normally inside a fairing behind a row of very hot exhaust pipes, as you have just warmed up the engine to change the oil. This filter remover can cope with most filters from 50mm diameter up ...

Michael Neeves, 15 February 2011 17:44

Wolfson DS-101a noise-cancelling headphones. £39.99Time used: Three months What’s good: I’ve always liked the idea of listening to music on long motorway journeys or boring commutes, but I also can’t ride without earplugs (actually, ear plug, I’m deaf in one ear), so I was keen to try these. I hoped they’d do the job of both. They’re ‘in-ear’ headphones, which ...
