4/ Held reinvented its boots range

5/ The bestselling clothing outfit fits with your adventure spirit

Alpinestars Andes Drystar Jacket WP - BlackAlpinestars Andes Drystar Outfit

The Andes outfit from Alpinestars brings the superior DryStar membrane into almost everybody’s financial reach, no wonder it sold so well (but if you haven’t got yours yet, get your hands on them quickly: the new version is launched this spring at a higher price)

6/ 2016 saw a new motorcycle clothing brand mark its territory

Dane Lyngby Trousers GTX Pro - BlackDane Lyngby Trousers

Dane Gore-Tex clothing received rave reviews in the motorcycle press and not surprisingly many of you were tempted to give a new contender a shot (Dane Lyngby trousers and Osted jacket are definitely worth a second look if you’re serious about all-year riding)

Alpinestars El Nino Rain Suit

11/ Held continues to protect your bikes

Held Cover 9003 VentedHeld 9003 Cover

If a quality cover is required, the Held 9003 cover was the first port of call as it has been in previous years: Why change something that does its job so well?
