My other half isn’t easy to please so it’s always with trepidation that I order her an item of bike clothing. Will she like the style, will it keep her warm, will she get wet? They are all questions I have to run through.
Luckily with Tucano Urbano you can be safe in the knowledge that each garment has been well designed and manufactured to the highest standards. She’s been wearing this Urbana jacket since October 2012 and she’s not worn any of her other jackets since. It’s cut well, fits nicely, is warm, wind and water proof and comes with CE approved armour in all the right places. The best thing about it is that I’ve had no earache about always having the best riding kit since she started wearing it. Well recommended! The jacket costs £169.99, visit: www.tucanourbano.co.uk
British company, TwoZero are quite innovative and have a range of functional and practical safety products. The TZ-2 bag costs £39.99 and has a few useful features, like the swivel function so it can be slid around the body without needing to take it off. It also has reflective straps and detailing, it’s close fitting so won’t blow about, has several pockets and a large zip that can be undone whilst wearing gloves. The bag is showerproof and is ideal for carrying the things you might need to get at quickly, like toll money, documents and passports. This one has been used since January and still looks as good as new. Visit: www.twozero.co.uk
