Innovative products come in all shapes and sizes, as I've suggested in the past. And sometimes we get an idea across our desks that is so obvious we can't understand why it hasn't been done before. Of course, Self cancelling indicators have been done before. Just not as well as this little box from STS... Wiz sliders have been around for, it seems, as long as sliders have been popular. And they keep getting better while at the same time managing not to really change at all. That's a neat trick. Of course, the reason they dont really change is simple - there is absolutely no reason why they should...

Sometimes it's easy to forget that, while us old lags have been steadily acquiring biking wisdom over the years some readers may not have the dubious beneft of our advancing ages. So here, with the aid of the nice people at Bikesure, are some little pearls of biking knowledge which may come in handy.

Innovative products come in all shapes and sizes, and for all sorts of purposes. We've recently got our hands on some cleaning materials (yes, really) which would qualify as innovative on lots of ways, as well as being really rather good. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Cyko Motorcycle Cleaner (and friends).

 

 

 

When Arai replace their top of the range helmet with a significant (though subtle) redesign it's definitely an event worthy of comment. So we actually bought one, and used it and examined it and then, for your reading pleasure and education, wrote about it. It's called the RX7-V and it's worth looking at...

There are occasions when something genuinely new and innovative comes across my desk. Recently that's happened quite regularly, thanks to a Dutch company called Acebikes. The first thing to review is Tyrefix - a new way to strap your bike down. And that's not something I expected to write...

Generally regarded as one of the better track guides around, Motorcycle Trackdays for Virgins is now back on sale, with updates, direct through MotorbikesToday. It saves you money and might just save you embarrassment, mechanical derangement, expense or even injury as well.

Wheel bearings get a spectacularly hard time, and they occasionally fail. Recent experience told us that there's not that much information available about how to replace them yourself, so we figured this was an opportunity to change that...

Racer make pretty good gloves, and we've reviewed quite a few. The Sicuro is their latest offering, and is even on sale through Amazon. Does this mean that our favourite Austrian protective clothing manufacturer has sold out on us? Read on to see...

And just when we thought that there couldn't be anything else new...Acebikes proved us wrong by also sending this - Brakefix. It's a stupidly simple idea that, now that I have one in my sticky little paw, I wonder how I ever got by without it. And why I hadn't thought of inventing it myself...

 

 

 

HJC are relatively recent players in the helmet scene, at least here in the UK. The American company are known for quality kit at a slightly lower than usual price, but their RPHA10+ Carbon helmet raises the bar on all sorts of levels. What am I talking about? read on and find out...

Scrubbers Leathers should be a name with which you are familiar. If you're not, and you ride a bike in the UK, read this and have a think about getting familiar with them. We sent the editors foul and foetid textile suit off to get clean, and it came back in extraordinary shape...

Knox make some very good, highly regarded kit that is used by professionals and normal folk alike across biking disciplines. Their Track Vest is one example of that - I don't know how many pro riders use it, but I do know that it's pretty good...
