Alpinestars Rayburn shoes review

Dec 16, 2015

Keeping right on trend with the booming cafe racer scene, Alpinestars have released the Rayburn shoes. Part of the Oscar line, the Alpinestars Rayburn boots are reminiscent of the original Oscar product line from the 1950s but with some modern safety features.

Jul 8, 2015

I’m sure you all know I’m a huge fan of Alpinestars’ technical gear. The build quality is excellent, you can tell they spend a lot of time focused on making the product work. Styling, durability, function and safety are all considered and delivered very well, for every product I’ve tested. Enter the Alpinestars Charger R Backpack, and...

Block Head caffeine chewing gum review

Jul 19, 2014

I’m not one for gimmicks. Generally they’re a waste of time and money. This is what I had in mind when we received the Block Head caffeine chewing gum. Each piece of gum contains 50mg of caffeine. Being a caffeine addict and having no idea how much a cup of coffee contains, I decided to chew on a couple of pieces, to be sure I’d feel an...
