  • RiDE Review: Daytona Road Star GTX

    01 November 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE Review: Daytona Road Star GTX

    Lower than other touring boots, these heavily built Daytonas are instantly comfortable. The calf width is adjustable, and there’s the choice of a wide fitting at no extra cost. They’re good to walk in...

    27 October 2016 by Richard Newland

    Petzl Tikkina head torch review (£13.11)

    What’s good about the Petzl Tikkina head torch? This is very much at the budget end of the head-torch spectrum, but I took the plunge on the basis that it was from a solid brand, and had attracted a...

  • RiDE Review: Shark Skwal

    13 October 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE Review: Shark Skwal

    The slightly square back of the Skwal doesn’t affect its stability, even at speed. It is a squeeze to get on, but it’s comfy with a pleasantly non-sweaty liner. The field of view is deep and wide,...

  • Rated: Aldi balaclava

    12 October 2016 by Simon Relph

    Rated: Aldi balaclava

    Time used: 2000 miles What’s good? If you feel the cool, then this is just the job. I always hold off with the extra layers until I really need them. I don’t worry on short runs, but if I’m out for...

    Rated: Oxford Products X30 Tailpack

    Time used: Five months/600 miles What’s good? I used to really like Suomy helmets and for as long as they were being brought into the UK they were my helmet of choice – they fitted my head perfectly.

  • RiDE review: Nolan N87

    12 October 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: Nolan N87

    The N87 is quiet at low speed but gets a little noisier above 100mph. The field of vision is good and the seam of the Pinlock never obstructs the view. The multi-adjustable sun visor, operated by a...

  • RiDE review: HJC FG-ST

    11 October 2016 by RiDE Reviews

    RiDE review: HJC FG-ST

    The FG-ST feels like a high-spec lightweight lid, from the smart matt-finish paint to the smooth, non-itchy liner. The field of view is good and deep, so the seam of the Max-Vision Pinlock never gets...

    04 October 2016 by Simon Brown

    Spada Pilgrim riding shoes review (£99.99)

    What’s good about the Spada Pilgrim riding shoes? These look great. When you ride a retro like my Ducati Scrambler it seems daft turning up with full-on boots, but wearing footwear that’s not designed...

    30 September 2016 by Ped Baker

    Nexx XG100 Bolt helmet review (£199.99)

    What’s good about the Nexx XG100 Bolt helmet? It’s certainly individual. In both looks and design the XG is like no other helmet I’ve used before. With studs for a sun peak and a clip-on visor the...

    What’s good about the Schuberth E1 helmet? Schuberth’s new E1 helmet is based on their C3 Pro flipfront but with a different chinbar, a more off-road suitable liner and a removable peak. Subtle...

    TCX Lady X-Boulevard boots review (£139.99)

    What’s good about the TCX Lady X-Boulevard boots? From first wear these have been comfortable, both on and off the bike, taking very little breaking in. I’m riding a Harley-Davidson Street 750 this...

    19 September 2016 by Simon Brown

    Weise Romulus gloves review (£74.99)

    What’s good about the Weise Romulus gloves? Decent, understated protection that won’t leave you too much out of pocket. One aspect that drew me to the Romulus gloves was that they have passed CE...

    09 September 2016 by Tim Thompson

    Held waterproof overboots review (£29.99)

    What’s good about the Held waterproof overboots? It’s summer, so you’re wearing summer boots – vented ones, I’d guess, perhaps a tad racy and certainly without a waterproof membrane. Then it rains and...

    Oxford Aqua 12 rucksack review (£39.99)

    What’s good about the Oxford Aqua 12 rucksack? It’s bright, retina-burningly bright, but that means it stands out well against my black riding gear. The size of the bag is great, it’s only 12 litres...
