Senior Road Tester Adam Child has been using this KTM backpack for the past five months, and has this to say about orange bag. What’s good? Putting a solar panel on a backpack is a stroke of genius;...

RiDE review: Britemax Clean Max

RiDE review: Britemax Clean Max

A super-concentrated shampoo that is great on paintwork and surprisingly good on brake dust, too. Only average on chain lube, but also designed not to affect previous wax finishes. Great for those who...

RiDE review: Dodo Juice Born To Be Mild

RiDE review: Dodo Juice Born To Be Mild

This is a professional, concentrated shampoo that is designed not to affect any previous wax coatings already on the bike. Still, it’s great on paintwork leaving a nice sheen and is nice to use.

RiDE review: Ammo Lightning Power Gel

This gel cleaner stays where it’s sprayed, but neither bottles we had fanned: just spot sprayed, hampering coverage. It worked really well, didn’t dry out and dealt brilliantly with brake dust and...
