Tested by Ru­pert Paul Time tested eight months/two events What’s good? Un­like a great deal of of­froad gear, this suit is not em­bar­rass­ing to be seen in and that’s the main rea­son I got it. What you get is a light, two-piece rid­ing suit with re­mov­able ar­mour and over-boot trousers. There are three lay­ers: wa­ter­proof and ther­mal in­ners and the abra­sion re­sis­tant fab­ric outer shell. If you keep all three you have a de­cent ad­ven­ture bike suit for the road, but I’ve just used the outer part for a week of Isle of Man trail rid­ing and the Hafren En­duro. It’s su­per-tech­ni­cal: there are cool air vents on the chest and arms, wick­ing in­ner fab­ric, un­zip­pable sleeves, lots of pock­ets, a min­imap panel on the left arm, and good wind­proof­ing. It’s very com­fort­able, too. Wash­ing couldn’t be eas­ier. It’s al­most dry by the time it comes out of the ma­chine. I re­ally like it.

What’s not? Wear­ing the trousers over my Acer­bis mo­tocross boots leaves them vul­ner­a­ble to hot exhausts. And some threads have started to fray.
