The team at Ride magazine spend the year testing motorcycle products. The output is the “Ride Best Buy” & “Ride Recommended” triangles. They are only awarded to the best of the best! While their tests are perhaps a little short on science, they are long on experience and feedback over comfort and practicality. Any product awarded one of these triangles is worth a consideration!
ALL-WEATHER TEXTILE CLOTHING TEST
The latest gear the Ride team targetted is textile motorcycle outfits under £800. A handful of options made it to ‘Recommended‘ status. The Dainese Carvemaster jacket and the matching Galvestone trousers was one of the recommended outfits, in particular for its waterproof performance and comfort.
DAINESE CARVEMASTER JACKET & GALVESTONE PANTS
The Dainese outfit is priced at the affordable end of the price range for Gore-Tex motorcycle clothing. This should be of interest to anyone looking for a proper waterproof textile suit with the benefit of Dainese comfort and protection (and we do recommend adding the optional back protector!).
