Stay Grounded with XENA

XGA 0001 LR 300x276 Stay Grounded with XENAXENA has updated its popular XGA Ground Anchor for 2014, so it’s now even easier and quicker to install. The XGA requires just one bolt to fix it in place – no drilling multiple holes or lining up fiddly templates – yet is just as strong as anchors using a multi-bolt fitting. It is so tough that it has been awarded the Gold Standard by SoldSecure*, the highest grade possible.

Fitting could not be simpler. Simply drill the hole, assemble the anchor, push the bolt into the drilled hole and then turn the anchor until the unique torsion controlled bolt holder within the device ‘clicks’, indicating that the unit is correctly installed. No spanners required!

It can be fixed to a wall or floor, inside or outside, and has a ‘fold flat’ design, so it won’t get in the way when not in use. The low profile means it can also be ridden over easily, so it can be installed in narrow passageways or in a garage floor. The XGA’s base rotates freely through 360 degrees, so chains and locks can be passed through the shackle easily, without having to manoeuvre the motorcycle into position. The swivel design also makes it incredibly difficult to get a purchase with a cutter or levering device. Combined with the extra thick shackle, it will resist the most determined of thieves.

AIRHAWK DS Cushion for Adventure Sport Bikes

Airhawk DS LR 300x200 AIRHAWK DS Cushion for Adventure Sport BikesAIRHAWK® have developed a new version of their pioneering inflatible seat cushion specifically for adventure sport motorcycles. Manufactured from soft yet durable neoprene, the DS cushion has a narrow front that matches the seat profile of most adventure sport bikes and is tapered-down to minimise pressure on the scrotum. It is supplied with a heavy duty hold-down strap system to ensure a secure fit to the bike.  AIRHAWK seats distribute pressure evenly across individual cells, while absorbing vibration from the engine. They also prevent heat build-up more effectively than gel seats. The air pressure inside can be increased/decreased to suit the rider and conditions using the valves on either side of the cushion.

Ewan McGregor used an AIRHAWK seat for his 19,000-mile Long Way Round trip on a BMW R1150GS Adventure motorcycle.

The AIRHAWK DS is covered by a 2-year warranty. Click here for prices

MCN review Keis jacket and gloves

MCN Keis 251x300 MCN review Keis jacket and gloves“Keis heated jacket and gloves harness heat from the bike to keep you toasty even when it’s freezing” writes Andy Davidson in Motor Cycle News. Andy tested the Keis X25 heated jacket and X800 heated gloves on his 550-mile weekly commute and a 1000-mile trip to Bavaria for the Elefant Rally in -4 degree temperatures.

“The jacket and gloves offer a warm, toasty, cuddly feeling”. He rates the gloves particularly highly; “The gloves keep the vulnerable backs of my hands hot and toast the fingertips. Every glove I’ve ever used has eventually let the cold in, apart from these.”

Ventura Bike Pack for Yamaha MT-09

Ventura MT 09 Front 300x260 Ventura Bike Pack for Yamaha MT 09Discrete, lightweight and with fuss-free fitting, the Ventura Bike Pack System is ideal for street-styled bikes like Yamaha’s MT-09. Minimalist machines offer little concession to carrying luggage; often with compact seats, and no secure strapping points. The stripped-down look also doesn’t lend itself to bulky, hard luggage.

The Ventura system consists of three easy-to-fit elements: L-Brackets, Rack and Pack. Bolt the L-brackets to the bike’s existing mounting points, slide the Pack Rack on, then clip your chosen Pack in place. Job done. It adds no extra width to the bike, is much lighter than hard cases and has far less of an impact on handling and performance.

When riding solo, the pack sits over the pillion seat keeping the weight closer to the bike’s centre of gravity, for a stable ride. When carrying a passenger simply flip the bag round, so it sits on the rack. There’s no need for unreliable and potentially paintwork damaging straps/bungee chords, as the QL clips hold the Pack firmly in place, and the system is quick and easy to detach; both the Pack and Rack can be removed in seconds, leaving only the discrete L-Brackets – and the bike’s lean look – behind.

Visit www.ventura-bike.co.uk for a full fitment list, prices and to view the rack and pack options.

Sdoc100 Motorcycle Cleaner Price Drop

Sdoc100′s award-winning Motorcycle Gel Total Cleaner now costs nearly 20% less than it did last year. A stronger Pound and a decision to reduce packaging delivered significant savings that enabled a reduction in the retail price from £15.99 per litre to £12.99.

HOT PANTS: Keis X2 Heated Trousers

Heated Trousers LR 195x300 HOT PANTS: Keis X2 Heated TrousersNew from Keis, the UK’s leading heated clothing specialist, the X2 trousers deliver 39 watts of heat through strategically positioned panels.

Designed to be worn under leather or textile motorcycle clothing, the Keis trousers are manufactured from breathable soft-shell material, with lightweight rear panels for a relaxed fit.

The heated panels use micro alloy element technology, which is not only efficient and reliable but is also washable. Current draw is a modest 3.25 amps, which will not tax the charging system on most modern motorcycles.

Like all Keis garments, the X2 trousers come with a fused supply lead so that they can be powered direct from the 12-volt battery on the motorcycle. Alternatively, an adaptor is available to power the trousers via a cigarette lighter type socket. It is also possible to ‘daisy chain’ the power supply via the Keis X10/X20 heated vests or the X25 jacket. There are dedicated zipped pockets to keep the cables neatly and conveniently stored while in use.

KEIS X800 Heated Outer Gloves

Outer Glove 182x300 KEIS X800 Heated Outer GlovesKEIS, the UK’s leading heated clothing specialists, have added a new outer glove to their collection for winter 2013/14, giving those planning to ride through the chilly season much needed relief from frozen fingers. The X800 Heated Outer Gloves feature Micro Alloy Element Technology, which provides reliable and even heat, whilst still allowing ease of movement and feel – crucial for winter riding, where conditions require careful operation of the throttle, clutch and front brake.

Like all KEIS garments, the gloves come with a fused supply lead for connection direct to a 12-volt vehicle battery. A ‘cigarette lighter’ adaptor is also available for vehicles fitted with a 12-volt power socket and users who have fitted an OptiMate type charger lead to the battery can connect their Keis gloves to it.

Heat is controlled by a button on the cuff of each glove, so the rider can tailor the temperature whilst on the move. There are four settings – low, medium, maximum and off.

In other respects the Keis X800 have similar features to traditional winter gloves, with a leather palm, Dintex waterproof/breathable membrane, 100g Thinsulate insulation and hard reinforcement over the knuckles.

The X800′s can also be connected to the KEIS X10 and X20 Heated Waistcoats, as well as the X25 jacket, plugging directly into sockets in the garment using dedicated connection leads. Current Draw is approximately two amps, so it will not put undue strain on the motorcycle’s charging system.

Keis X800 Heated Outer Gloves are available in black only, unisex sizes S-XL, and come complete with all required wiring and full easy to follow instructions. Click here for price information.
