Liam Marsden, 14 October 2013 12:30

Alpinestars Techstar motocross jersey, £44.99, and pants, £149.99Time tested: One year What’s good? The airmesh fabric with PU coating means they’re tough and breathable, while the insides of the lower legs are made from reinforced leather for heat resistance and gripping the bike.

Jacket Review: Alpinestars Avant leather jacket

Phil West, 02 September 2013 12:00

Alpinestars Avant leather jacket, £299.99Time tested: 400 miles/two months What’s good? Alpinestars’ summer leather jacket has bags of subtle style (coming in plain and classy brown, beige or black), plenty of features (pre-shaped sleeves, armour for elbows and shoulders and lots of stretch panels, pockets and adjustment tabs), 1.1mm leather where it counts and, I reckon, it's reasonable value, too, ...

Product review: Knox Venture Shirt

Marc Abbott, 25 June 2012 13:57

Knox Venture Shirt, £109.99Time used: Four weeks What’s good: This Lycra shirt contains CE-approved elbow and shoulder armour plus a hard protector. It’s excellent. I wear it beneath my Barbour International which for me lacks just one thing – protection. After a very big crash at the tail-end of last year, I decided it was time to take protection seriously ...

Barbour Surtees waxed jacket, £279.95 Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The wax cotton jacket has made a bit of a comeback recently with many manufacturers now offering similarly styled garments.

Bering Alias jacket and trousers, £378.99 and £257.99 Miles covered/time: 1500/10 months What's good: This suit really excels in winter, with the lining in place it is like putting on a duvet, it is not only warm, but is also very comfortable whilst at the same time not too bulky (one of my pet hates is putting a set of ...

Muc-Off wipes, from £2.49 in the MCN Shop Buy Muc-Off wipes in the MCN Shop  Miles covered/time: three yearsWhat's good? The Abbott garage is a place of considerable grease, with motorcycles, push bikes and other garden machinery waiting to leave their oily mark.

Jacket review: Bering Banks

Steve Farrell, 18 May 2010 14:33

Bering Banks coat, £250Mile covered: 4000/one year What’s good? It serves just as well as a smart everyday coat as it does for riding. It’s Gore-Tex, so there’s no question of water seepage.

Kit review: Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers

Samuel Pinney, 09 December 2009 14:37

Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers, £129.99 Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/five months What’s good? The armour is very well positioned so that when you are riding the bike it perfectly covers your knees. It’s surprisingly thick too. This is why, even after ejecting from a Daytona 675 recently whilst wearing these, I don’t walk with a limp now. The ...
