Oxford Aquatex Bike Cover
Customer Product Reviews
Good piece of kit (but not waterproof)
I've now owned 4 of these covers. I only ever give them 4 Stars though as they don't keep your bike completely dry in heavy rain. They water does seep through eventually, especially if the cover makes contact with your bike. However for the cheap price it's still a good wee cover.
I've bought several of these over the years for my daughter's 50cc Vespa with topbox. Good waterproof cover that she can scrunch up into the topbox or under the seat. It does deteriorate in the sun but you should get 18-24 months use out of it before you need to buy another.
Cheap and portable but not waterproof or durable
I've got two of these covers. I use them more as a dust cover and anti-theft device than a rain protector. The cover is not at all waterproof, it is hopeless in that regard, however it is very light and can be packed up into a very small space meaning it will fit in my backpack. I have an Oxford stormex cover also and that really does protect from the rain BUT it's very bulky in comparison. One of these covers has already developed a small hole too so I can't see them lasting longer than a year at best if your using every day but it's a £20 cover after all.
Good budget cover
I bought this cover to be light and easy to use - which it does very well. I have had bulkier covers before and they are heavy to work with and don't compress down into small spaces. This one fits under the rear seat cowl on my Fireblade, which is immense! Be warned that some rain may get under the cover and on to your bike - it appears not to be 100% waterproof. But it keeps most of it out. And keeps my bike hidden from 'prying' eyes - that is good enough for me. Finally, as usual, delivered at lightning speed by SBS!
Lasted 10 months until it fell apart. First rip appeared at 8 months on the side and then a gust of wind tore it open completely. At leats it's cheap enough to replace! My last Oxford cover lasted 5 years, I have other great Oxford products, perhaps it was defective.
XXL bike cover
Bought this bike cover for my K1200 lt, plenty big enough. I would have liked a longer fastening strap so I don't have to get on my hands and knees to fasten/unfasten it though. Good quality, no chance of getting it back in the bag which it came with.
