As far as MX helmets go this has to be one the best money can buy, which obviously reflects with the price. Arai are well known for their attention to style and more importantly the highest form of protection.
Thousands of hours are passed to design and develop the shell and ventilation system on this high-end off-road helmet, or possibly on-road if you add a classy set of goggles.
But the main reason for this new Arai product is the Nicky Hayden tribute paint scheme, truly stunning on all counts. Seems a shame to get it dirty?

If you’re a fan of the Union Jack flag then you’re going to enjoy these. They’re a genuine Triumph accessory, which means they’re of the highest quality.
Made from the finest leather and found at the fingertips are interesting little grip inserts for improved feel on the levers, so they say.
But never mind that because the Queen would surely like these for her next horse event? And if you happen to own a Mini then how cool would these look clamped around the steering wheel, or anything British for that matter?

It’s nice to inform our readers about products on special offer to save you money, so here’s a nice one.
Thule is a Swedish company that specializes in all sorts of outdoor items, like cycle carriers and of course this. It’s a sturdy bag with an internal ‘hard case’ to carry sunglasses or other fragile things, maybe even an expensive sandwich or two.
Either way it’ll last longer than many others because the Swedes make superb outdoor equipment on all counts. Donald Trump would love one because it matches his skin colour.

Spring and then summer is just around the corner, right? So if you happen to own any KTM motorcycle you’ll probably want one of these to keep yourself cooler as the temperatures rise?
We would say that this particular jacket is around 80% vented so don’t take it to Norway on your next skiing trip. Otherwise, it’s ideal for our hot days and nights.
Inside it does carry various armour and padding to keep the ‘pointy’ bits protected in case of a mishap. And if you require similar cooling for your legs there’s also matching pants with the same high quality style.
