Gearbox: Swag of the Month

Not all riders like the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers look they get from wearing modern sport/racing gloves, with their acres of carbon fiber. And if you're part of such a crew, Helimot's H-20 gloves might be just what you're looking for. Mind you, the H-20 designation signifies Helimot's 20th anniversary and has nothing to do with water.

Indeed, the H-20s look to be such fine kit you won't want to wear them in the rain. The precurved gloves are constructed of cowhide with kangaroo skin palms; the backs of the hands feature a perforated pigskin lining and dual densities of foam padding. Made in the U.S.A., the H-20s feature a one-year warranty, with a $199.95 MSRP for standard colors (gray/black, yellow/black, red/black, blue/black in XXS-XXXL). (408) 298-9608,


Decent motorcycle apparel for women used to be like Atlantis: rumored, but never actually seen. Nowadays you can hardly swing a Scottish Fold in a dealership without hitting a piece of women's gear. One of the nicer-looking jackets comes from Joe Rocket, and it's named, of course, the Roxie. Made of 1.0mm to 1.2mm uncorrected (not embossed to conceal flaws) cowhide, Roxie features CE-rated protectors in the shoulders and elbows, a spine pad, a removable insulated vest liner, ventilation and zippers at the hips. Available colors are black, Hawaii blue, red or white with sizes ranging from XS to XL; $299.99. (800) 635-6103,


A tool junkie's life is a lonely life. There are no 12-step programs, no support groups, no 1-800 self-help lines. There's only the search for more. To that end, Loggerhead Tools offers its Bionic Wrench. Said to combine the best traits of an adjustable-end wrench with pliers, this clever device, Loggerhead claims, fits 16 sizes of nuts or bolts, SAE or metric. It's supposed to size and grip, automatically distributing equal force, with a single-handed squeeze. Suggested retail price is $28.95. (888) 564-4374, www.loggerhead


Weary of seeing the same replica-style helmet on every other rider you pass? Well, with this KBC VR-2 Repsol Replica, you can be all but guaranteed you won't see many others. Only 750 will be made, to be sold through distributor Motorcycle Stuff. Based on the same hat as worn by multiple AMA Superbike champ Mat Mladin, the VR-2 features KBC's Ultra Quick Visor Removal system, a new lining and new ventilation. Available in XS-XXL sizes, the Repsol rep retails for $349.95. (408) 825-5000.
