    Ural Motorcycles I’ve always been a fan of Ural bikes. They’re tough and timeless, and in two-wheel-drive sidecar form, can tackle terrain that few other touring bikes can match. Ural’s latest release is the bike you see here, the 2WD Taiga Limited Edition. Based on the popular Gear-Up, it takes Ural’s off-road performance to new heights. There’s an engine skid plate, an auxiliary spotlight and even a winch.

Having scored a direct hit on the café racer market with the Ronin jacket, RSD has gone for more of a rocker style with its latest release. The $650 Clash jacket has a discreet double-breasted design with an offset zipper and classy quilted padding on the shoulders.

The fit is designed for riding, with pre-curved sleeves, extra length at the back, and pockets for you to add armor.

If you haven’t heard of Hedon before, that’s okay—the English brand is a new name on the open-face helmet scene. And it’s already providing stern competition for the likes of Davida. Our favorite model is the £395 “1971” limited edition, designed in conjunction with the cool cats from the French website 4h10. Build quality is excellent: there’s a composite carbon and fiberglass shell, the hardware is brass, and the paint is deep and glossy.

It’s part of the new ICON 1000 Fall/Winter 2014 collection, and you can order it right away from Revzilla.

There are numerous remakes of the classic waxed cotton motorcycle jacket, from haute couture versions with silly prices to cheap-and-nasty knock-offs. But customer feedback is suggesting that the new REV’IT! Hillcrest is one of the best. There’s no rocket science here: just respectful styling, a mesh liner to keep you cool during warmer days, and three colors: black, blue and titanium. Good value at $260.

Italian style doesn’t get much better than this. The $400 Spidi Ring is a crafted from relatively lightweight buffalo leather, with a soft and supple feel. Weighing in at only 1.7 kg (less than four pounds), it’s ideal for urban riding and wearing off the bike. But with reinforced seams and trouser clips, it’s more than just a fashion statement. You also get CE-approved elbow and shoulder protectors, and there’s a pocket to add a back protector if you wish.
