On test: Storm Helmet Deodoriser
Written by paul Jennison   
Thursday, 01 August 2013 15:59
Adventure Bike Rider gear editor Paul Jennison takes a look at Storm's helmet deodoriser, a deodorising spray designed specifically for motorcycle helmets. Does it work at keeping your lid smelling sweet and fresh? Click 'Read more' to find out.     The timing couldn’t really have been better when I received some helmet after care products to review. Our summer had arrived with such a ferocity that caught many of us pleasantly off-guard. Temperatures in the high 20’s Celsius have become something of a rarity over the last few so called summers. Prolonged riding in hot weather is going to make the inside of any motorcycle helmet  sweaty, damp and smelling something like the British and Irish Lions post match laundry basket.   Storm DFX has developed a spray on deodoriser which can be used on helmet liners (as well as your boots and gloves if they need it) which kills the odour producing bacteria making the insides cleaner and fresher again. The spray contains silver technology which is a well-known anti-bacterial agent that is also hypoallergenic so it's safe on most skin types. The chemicals in the spray can be used on numerous fabrics and will not degrade the materials. I have used the deodoriser on my regular lid and it freshened up the linings making them a pleasant place to put my head in again. A 75ml bottle has a RRP of £5.50 and stockists can be found by visiting: www.stormwaterproofing.com
 
ABR Pic of the Week winner announced
Written by Bryn   
Thursday, 01 August 2013 14:46

Entries for this week's 'Pic of the Week' are now closed which means it's time to announce the winner! We were sent in some awesome photo's and, as always, choosing a winner proved to be a very difficult task so we sealed the doors of ABR towers and began our Pic of the Week conclave.

After a few hours of deliberation, white smoke drifted from our chimney and we'd decided which pic was best. So, without further ado, we are pleased to announce that this week's winner is...Tony Gill (a.k.a Browndog on the ABR forums) with this fantastic shot which he took on the Stella Alpina earlier this year!

ABR pic of the week winner tony

Congratulations to Tony, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie and two ABR stickers!

As I mentioned, we were sent in some cracking shots this week so click 'Read more' to see this week's runners up.

Givi has announced the launch of the biggest case in its luggage collection.

ABR Weekend Weather
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 26 July 2013 09:40

In the past week we've seen a bit of a change from the sweltering heat and blue skies that were so uncharacteristic of UK summers, thunderstorms have been rolling their way through the country and heavy rain has followed. The temperatures remained fairly hot though and we've still had our fair share of beautiful biking days.

The weekend though, is looking a little grim. The only 'nice' thing going for it is the fact that temperatures will stay fairly warm, hovering around the high teens and low twenties, similar to what we've experienced this past week.

ABR Pic of the Week winner announced
Written by Bryn   
Thursday, 25 July 2013 09:02

Entries for this week's 'Pic of the Week' are now closed and we've been sent in some great shots from ABRs all over the country, which makes picking one winner so difficult.

However, after days and days of careful consideration we can announce that the winner of this week's 'Pic of the Week' competition is (drum-roll please)...Kevin Martin from Surrey with a cool shot of an ABR green laning in the frost, a bit of a contrast to the weather we've had recently!

Congratulations to Kevin, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie and two ABR stickers (make sure you get them on that bike)!

Of course there were some honourable mentions, click 'Read more' to see this week's runners up and to find out how you can enter next week.

Could this be the future of motorcycle helmets?
Written by Bryn   
Friday, 19 July 2013 15:10
  • New helmet to be produced with internal Heads up Display unit
  • Riding information will be available on your visor
  • Is this the future of motorcycle helmets?

 

I've just received a very interesting press release from the guys over at REEVU about a new helmet they're planning on bringing out. The EYE1, or Intelligent EYE Helmet, promises to give riders a futuristic Heads up Display (HUD), that will present information such as speed, GPS directions and bike diagnostics, into your visor.

It's an interesting concept and if it works, could it be the future of motorcycle helmets?

ABR Weekend Weather

Friday, 19 July 2013 09:33

Over the last few weeks you'd be forgiven for thinking that Great Britain had somehow traded weather with Hawaii, the sky has been blue and the temperature has been consistently sitting around the high twenties, a perfect excuse to get out riding.

Will it last though? We've rounded up the weather from around the country for the coming weekend to keep you informed on the riding conditions.
