We've just received a bunch of new 2019 kit from Link International to put to the test over the coming months...
Link International recently sent us a bunch of their new gear to review over the Winter and Spring months, including product from TCX boots, AGV helmets and Macna apparel. It’s amazing how quickly Link, most famous for Motul and Pirelli, have become a big player in the apparel game, considering they only took on riding gear in 2017. Macna in particular is becoming a household name for Aussie motorcyclists…
In for review for Jeff is a new top of the line track lid, the AGV Corsa R – Casanova, a pair of TXC Street Ace waterproof riding shoes, TCX SP waterproof road boots, a pair of Macna Stone Jeans and a neat Macna Bastic Green bomber jacket.
John Arens is going to be testing the K5-S and a Macna Event jacket when he heads around Australia in a few months.
Tony ‘Pommie’ Wilding will be putting a new AGV AX9 lid to the test, not only with his adventure riding but also on his custom bikes as it is a pretty cool looking lid…
