Oxford Umbratex Bike Top Cover
Customer Product Reviews
Compact, small and rainproof
It can squeeze into a tiny little ball and fits right into my backpack without taking too much space. Useful for when you go out to keep the seat and electronics dry. Would of course not use this for overnight parking (would use a proper one that comes all the way down close to the ground). The velcro straps are sturdy and easy enough to use so the cover doesn't fly away in the wind. The bike cover is light and doesn't prevent scratches from stupid passersby.
I commute on my bike so this cover is great for rainy days to keep the electrics & seat dry whilst it's sat in the car park. Small enough to be packed up again quickly and chucked in my top box alongside my inner bag. Very easy to put on and off. It has two velcro straps at the side which you can use to make sure it doesnt fly off. I bought the XL which fits my Versys 650 with top box very well.
Oxford unbeaten bike top cover
Did the job perfectly on a tigersport 1050 ( no panniers or top box ) on our recent tour of the peak district from Devon.the Velcro straps worked around the front forks and heel procteters.pack it away in a carrier bag and then in its own bag when we got home.worth every penny for me
I got this cover specifically to take with me to work, just to keep essential parts dry whilst parked. For this it has been perfect! Easy to put on and small enough to keep in my tail bag so I can take it anywhere. Carry bag makes it easy to pack away too. Important to think about sizing, I have a Kawasaki Z1000SX 2016 and the Medium fits just. On the pack it says Naked to Sports bikes, I think this is about right. The Z1000SX is quite a small Sports-Tourer and anything bigger would need a Large I'd imagine. But the Medium should fit most modern 1000cc sports bikes or smaller. I'm really pleased with this product and I think the tie down straps are a good idea, would have liked a little more covered but I'm just being picky, this cover is perfect for commuting and travelling and usual Oxford quality is included. Thanks SBS, great service too!
Perfect for commuting
I've got other Oxford bike covers and they're just too bulky to take with you to work everyday. This little cover is perfect! It covers all the bits of the bike that I want to keep dry (seat and electrics) but isn't bulky at all and fits nicely into a carrier bag if it's wet. Hopefully it'll stand up to a Scottish winter, only time will tell.
Compact and lightweight
Inexpensive and compact waterproof cover. I purchased this cover as a temporary solution to keep the controls and seat dry when parked at workplace as there isn't any sheltered area to keep my bike dry. My only disappointment is the elasticated edge can make it awkward if needing to cover quickly as I discovered with a full cover I previously owned but which I understand is what keeps the cover from blowing off, however it is easier than a full cover. I own a Yamaha FZ6 with GIVI topbox arms / mount and purchased Large. The cover will only fit with the topbox detached but will cover the top plate otherwise I would recommend an XL.
Compact and protective
I don't really need a full cover for my bike, so this was perfect. Goes on and comes off in seconds, folds up into a compact size and keeps the essential components dry and clean. Even without applying the straps, it's never threatened to blow away with the wind. If you don't have a garage to store your bike (and can't be bothered with a big, tent-like cover), this is pretty much perfect.
