Holroyd Race-Tech tyre warmers, £99

Time tested: Two years

What’s good? Holroyd tyre warmers are certainly robust. Tyre warmers can really get put through it in the heat of a race weekend – torn off in a hurry, left in a heap on the floor, put away warm – and lesser warmers always end up only lasting half a season. But these are still as good as new after two seasons. In terms of spec they are basic and don’t have any fancy temperature control which means you cannot use them for road tyres, but for build quality and value I can’t fault them. And they’re British made and come complete with a handy storage bag.

What’s not: I really don’t like the pull-cords and toggles. They’re fiddly and time-consuming to take on and off and sometimes get lost inside the warmer.
