Ausstattung und Sicherheitsmerkmale
Werkstoffe und Visiere
- Thermoplaste ist ein leicht formbarer Kunststoff, der im automatisierten Verfahren mit Spritzgussmaschinen hergestellt wird und günstig in der Produktion ist. Helme, die aus diesem Material bestehen, sind weniger hart und altern schneller als Duroplasten, dafür aber meist preiswerter .
- Bei den Duroplaste-Modellen sind die Helmschalen aus einem Verbund von Karbon-, Kevlar- und Fiberglasfäden gefertigt – ein aufwendiges Hochtechnologieverfahren mit dem Ergebnis besonders bruchfester und steifer Helme.
- Mit Motorradhelmen aus Carbon schlagen die Hersteller in die Kerbe des Gewichts: Die meist sehr leichten Helme tragen viel zum Tragekomfort bei. Dafür müssen Interessenten aber auch tiefer in die Tasche greifen.

Best road bike in the world : Specialized Tarmac achieves new TOUR top rating
So far, four competition models have topped the list of the best racing bikes in the world. The Canyon Aeroad , Giant Propel , Scott Foil and Specialized Tarmac SL7 earned the top rating in TOUR by top performance in the four most important criteria. The 1.4 seemed carved in stone, with the symbiosis of aerodynamics, weight, comfort, and stiffness hardly able to be improved upon. But with a great piece of engineering, Specialized is now setting a new benchmark - and giving an insight into the direction that competition bikes are likely to develop.
Tarmac SL8: Perfect symbiosis
Making one of the already best racing bikes in the world even better: That was the challenge faced by Specialized and their chief engineer, Peter Denk . And they stayed true to their philosophy. The SL8 remains, among competition all-rounders, the bike that shows no weaknesses in its exclusive S-Works version. Already during the first test ride on the sidelines of the World Championships in Glasgow, this bike hinted at its potential . The measurements from TOUR’s lab and GST-Wind Tunnel confirmed this riding experience. The bike impresses above all with the perfect interplay of its characteristics.
With its low weight of 6550 grams, the Tarmac accelerates like a bullet and effortlessly sprints up climbs. The exceptionally rigid frame set and the sporty, stretched riding position emphasize the character of this thoroughbred racer. Unlike our test bike in Glasgow, which was equipped with a 3D-printed saddle, the reviewed version comes with a conventional carbon saddle, which is slightly less comfortable. Overall, the SL8 provides a high level of comfort for a competition bike.
In the GST-Wind Tunnel in Immenstaad , the Specialized bike finally eliminated all doubts: with 209 watts of pedalling power to overcome drag at 45 km/h, the new model is only minimally faster than the SL7 (210 watts). In addition, there are competitors with better aerodynamics or more comfort. However, as an overall concept, no racing bike currently performs better.
The fastest racing bikes in TOUR
The Tarmac SL8 is exactly ten watts behind the fastest road bike in the TOUR test, the Simplon Pride II (199 watts). However, the aero bike from the Austrian bicycle manufacturer is also more than a kilogram heavier and more tightly tuned, which is why it cannot keep up with the agile handling of the Specialized.
In comparison to similar all-round concepts like the Cannondale SuperSix (207 watts) or Van Rysel RCR (207 watts), the Tarmac is almost on par in terms of aero performance. However, both the bike from its US competitor and the novelty from Decathlon’s own brand are also heavier and less stiff.
The price tag of the new record holder dampens the excitement. While the S-Works Tarmac SL8 with electronic Dura-Ace and aero wheels from their own brand Roval is slightly cheaper than its predecessor, 14000 euros is still a lot of money for a racing bike - no matter how good it is. Cheaper versions range between 6800 and 9000 euros, but they don’t match the impressive riding experience of the top model.

- Frame comfort: 156 N/mm | 1.7
- Aerodynamics: 209 watts | 1.7
The TOUR rating
The TOUR rating is based on what is technically possible and reasonable. For example, we award a rating of 1.0 for weight if the road bike weighs less than 6.3 kilograms. The same applies to criteria such as stiffness and comfort - here, we use what is technically sensible as the benchmark. Making a road bike infinitely stiff is not desirable. While a rating of 1.0 can be achieved in this discipline, the values are capped. The theoretical overall rating for a bike is 1.0; however, since individual criteria such as weight and aerodynamics require conflicting measures in design, the challenge remains high.
With introduction of electronic shifting systems and disc brakes, we have adjusted our rating to account for technological advancements. This also applies to current tires with improved technical properties. Therefore, the new top grade of 1.3 cannot be compared to older bikes that achieved this score with rim brakes and mechanical shifting systems anymore.

Sleek, sophisticated, sporty—all adjectives associated with AGV. The Italian helmet house didn’t earn that reputation overnight, though. With more than 75 years to its name, AGV has protected motorcycle racing royalty since 1947. Over the decades, the brand trickled down its Grand Prix-derived tech to its street-going lineup.
AGV’s Sportmodular helmet is the prime example of that raceway-to-roadway exchange. Upholding the firm’s style and substance standards, the sport-touring lid touts a sleek carbon-fiber shell, sophisticated finishes, and a sporty silhouette. That formula may suit dedicated tarmac warriors, but with adventure-touring commanding more market share these days, AGV needed to tap into its rugged side.
Enter the Tourmodular , the Italian gear maker’s new entry-level modular option. In lieu of full-carbon construction, the model favors a composite shell consisting of carbon, aramid fiber, and fiberglass. That’s not the Tourmodular’s only defiant design, either. From the boxy muzzle to the angular profile, the lid side-steps AGV’s three ‘S’s and blazes its own path.
Of course, that utilitarian aesthetic only pays dividends if it actually yields utility. After spending several months with the Tourmodular, we’re well aware of where it meets the brief and where it falls short.
If the Shoe Fits
Before we delve into the merits and missteps, we first need to address the model’s sizing. My head measures 58cm around the perimeter. While that circumference places me in the Medium-Small (MS) range for AGV’s K6 full-face helmet , I ultimately sized up to a Medium-Large (ML) unit. On the Tourmodular scale, my 58cm noggin positions me at the upper end of the Medium (M) bracket.
Only after trying on the suggested size at my local Dainese store did I realize that I needed to divert from the provided chart. The medium helmet’s cheek pads appropriately pressed against my jaw, but a substantial gap between my head and the liner didn’t inspire confidence. In the end, I sized down to a Small (S) helmet. For that reason, I encourage customers to try on the Tourmodular before committing to the purchase.
Regardless of your size, AGV luxuriates the helmet’s interior with premium materials such as suede-like Shalimar, breathable Ritmo, and robust eco-friendly leather. While my cranium fit snugly into the model's slightly-rounder-than-intermediate-oval shape, the small size’s narrow neck opening forced me to lift the chin bar before entering and exiting the helmet. At first, the extra step pushed the boundaries of annoyance. Developing some muscle memory rendered that extra step a minor inconvenience with time. However, the tight aperture soon led to ventilation issues as well.
Gone with the Wind
AGV equips the Tourmodular with three intakes along the chin bar, one large crown vent, and two passive extractors at the rear. The helmet evenly disperses all that incoming air through 16 channels in the inner shell. The comprehensive system doesn’t just thoroughly ventilate the helmet’s interior but also strategically shuttles air to the rider.
Most chin vents blast airflow directly at the user’s mouth, but the Tourmodular’s inlets push the stream to the cheeks. In addition to even air distribution, the chin vents greatly reduce the chances of lip chapping, especially during the winter months. The crown intake also sends refreshing gales to the top of the head, but the effect only amplifies at higher speeds.
As modular helmets go, riders can easily flip up the chin bar to maximize ventilation when the ports aren’t filtering in adequate air. Due to the Tourmodular’s narrow opening and non-removable chin skirt, that tends to be the case on surface streets. From light to light, the lid cycles enough wind through the interior to keep the Pinlock MaxVision-equipped visor clear. The same can’t be said for the dropdown sunscreen.

Without the benefit of an anti-fog treatment, the stuffy confines quickly steam up the interior visor when pulling away from a stop. The same effect occurs when hustling through the twisties or negotiating technical terrain. Only sustained airflow restores optimal visibility. For that reason, I formed the habit of lifting the chin bar or cracking the external shield to introduce additional airflow.
At a steady clip, however, the dropdown screen performs admirably, shielding the rider’s eyes when the sun dips below the zenith. The widescreen-worthy eye port only enhances visibility with its 190 degrees of horizontal vision and its 85-degree vertical field of view. Boasting several configurations, the Tourmodular meets every occasion with a solution. Howling down the highway? Look no further than the ventilation system. Moseying about town? Flip up the chin bar for extra airflow. If that isn’t utility, we don’t know what is.
The Tourmodular may come in as an entry-level option, but AGV doesn’t treat the lid as such. Lightweight construction, posh interior fabrics, and advanced features still characterize the modular lid. From the convenience of the micrometric buckle to the protection provided by the five-density inner shell, the Tourmodular proves you don’t have to sacrifice your finances for form and function.
At $659.95 (for solid colors), AGV’s latest model adapts the brand’s signature style to the ever-changing touring landscape. Whether you ride a Suzuki GSX-S1000GT+ or a Ducati Multistrada V4 , the Tourmodular stands up to the rigors of the road and trail. It looks like all that rugged utility can still be sleek, sophisticated, and sporty, after all.

Winner of the “Tour” wheel test: OBERMAYER EVO
Lightweight won over the testers from Tour
“Highly sophisticated design with laminated spokes made in Germany. Unparalleled stiffness that gives rise to a very direct ride feeling”: With an overall grade of 1.7, the OBERMAYER EVO confidently asserted itself in the test by Tour against seven comparable models in the “racing bike wheel with carbon spokes and rims” category.
Extreme stiffness, perfect service: Lightweight won over the testers from Tour
With its extensively laminated spokes and wrapped spoke crossings, the OBERMAYER EVO can impress with excellent stiffness in particular, which its competitors cannot match (detailed test grades: 1.0 at the front and 1.3 at the back). The complex connection of the hub and rims of Lightweight carbon spokes was also praised – laminating of large areas provides for a connection that can reliably withstand even high traction. The OBERMAYER EVO did not fail to impress in the aerodynamics test either, scoring a grade of 1.7.
5 years warranty and crash replacement
The tried-and-tested Lightweight service was also commended: the generous crash replacement arrangement and free warranty extension to cover defects in material and workmanship in the form of a manufacturer warranty for a total of five years also stood out by comparison.
The full story “Racing bike wheels: testing 8 models with carbon spokes” is available on the Tour magazine website.

How the Tenement Museum Got a New Tenant
By Ismail Ibrahim
New York City’s history is full of doppelgängers, look-alikes, and repetitions. Is there any experience as universal as moving here from a small town, working a crappy job, and spending half your keep to rent a shoebox apartment that you share with a roommate? Take, for instance, the story of a waiter named Joseph Moore. He moved to the city from Belvedere, New Jersey. He wasn’t on StreetEasy—this was 1857. The best he could afford was a two-hundred-and-seventy-square-foot apartment he shared with four others. Moore is the subject of the Tenement Museum’s latest exhibition, “A Union of Hope.” On a recent Sunday, two historians who consulted on the project, Tyler Anbinder and Leslie Harris, met with Annie Polland, the museum’s president, to take a tour.
The three joined up on Orchard Street, outside one of the walkups that house the museum. Since its founding, in 1988, the museum has focussed on its buildings’ former residents. Moore is the first subject who lived elsewhere. Polland, who has a cascade of graying hair, explained why he was chosen for the honor. Reason one: in 2008, an exhibition about Irish inhabitants featured a different Joseph Moore—another waiter. Attendees were given a page from an old city directory. It listed two Joseph Moores. “The visitors are, like, ‘Well, wait, who’s this other Joseph Moore?’ ” Polland said. “ ‘Why does it say “col’d”? He lives on Laurens Street. Where is Laurens Street?’ And so we looked into this.” “Col’d” meant “colored”; Laurens Street is now West Broadway.
Reason two: in the eighties, a woman named Gina Manuel sent a letter to the museum’s founders, asking them not to forget her Black ancestors. “Their spirits walk those halls and their bones lay in the earth there,” she wrote. (She added, “Forgive typo’s, on coffee break.”) Recently, the museum looked into Manuel’s ancestry. “We have her great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother living at Laurens Street,” Polland said. “That was, like, ‘Whoa,’ because that’s the same address as Joseph and his wife, Rachel!” Manuel’s great-grandmother, Parthenia, overlapped with the Moores.
“You’re making that up!” Anbinder, who is wiry, with an impish face, said.
“We did scream when we found that out,” Polland said.
Harris, who has a short Afro of loose curls, said, “My woo-woo part is ‘You’ve ignored us for too long. Now it’s time.’ ”
The museum cobbled together details of Moore’s life. Anbinder provided information about conditions in the tenement. Harris advised on Black life in the city. Moore, it turned out, had come to Manhattan at the age of twenty, after another free Black man in Belvedere was apprehended by a “slave catcher.” Moore likely made eighteen dollars a month as a waiter, and spent seven on rent. “Waiters were virtually the worst-paid men in New York,” Anbinder said. “Chimney sweep—that would be even worse.”
The procession continued to the top-floor re-creation of Moore’s cramped two-room quarters. Joseph, Rachel, and her stepdaughter (Rachel had previously been married to the girl’s father, who escaped slavery and later died) lived with an Irish washerwoman named Rose and her son, Louis Munday, who is listed on census forms as “mulatto.” The Moores all slept in the same bedroom; in the exhibition, a framed photo of Abraham Lincoln sat on the mantel. The kitchen could barely accommodate a metal washtub, a coal stove, and a dining table, spread with oysters and bread. “I have to share that the stovepipe is missing,” Polland said. “There will be someone on the tour that would ask about that. Some people love stoves.”
Anbinder was poking through the larder. “How did you choose a turkey carcass?” he asked.
“Do you really want to know?” Polland said.
In the Moores’ time, most parts of the city were hostile to Black renters. Laurens Street was an exception. “The majority of white New Yorkers were really mad that the country was fighting a war to free slaves,” Anbinder said.
Harris explained, “There was a big discussion within the Black community about whether or not people should stay, not only in New York but if they should stay in the U.S.”
In 1870, Laurens Street was widened, and the Moores and their neighbors were displaced. (The site of their tenement building eventually became the Soho Grand Hotel.) Afterward, the trail on Moore went cold for a decade. He resurfaced in Jersey City, where he was working as a coachman and had remarried. Rachel seems to have died; the museum has yet to find a death certificate.
The group headed to a basement saloon. “I, for the record, don’t believe in ghosts,” Polland said. “But the voices of people whose stories haven’t been told did exist. And I think when you start to listen for them, and you start to look for them, and you start to become attuned to it, then you start to hear it.” ♦

Shoei GT-Air II Helmet | Gear Review
For sport-touring riders who prefer a traditional full-face helmet to a modular or flip-up style, Shoei’s GT-Air has been a top choice since it was first released back in 2012. Since then, the popularity of built-in or integrated Bluetooth communication systems has increased, so for 2019 Shoei has updated the GT-Air II with an optional Sena SRL2 comm system, along with some other tweaks meant to make a great lid even better.
The SRL2 ($299) was designed specifically for the GT-Air II, which means installation is quick and almost foolproof. Insert the battery and controller into their separate compartments, snap the speakers into the pre-cut indentations and stick the microphone on the inside of the chin bar (or use the included boom mic). Ready to ride!
Otherwise, the basic construction of the GT-Air II is unchanged: the shell is made of Shoei’s proprietary Multi-Ply Matrix AIM, which consists of hand-laid interwoven layers of fiberglass, organic fibers and resin, backed by a new EPS liner that now incorporates varying foam densities within each piece for a compact, lightweight design that still protects your noggin.
The removable, washable and sizable Max-Dry interior feels like it may be just a bit more plush than the previous GT-Air, but fit seems about the same as before: a slightly longer oval shape than some of Shoei’s other helmets. Fit around the neck roll is a tad looser to facilitate pulling the GT-Air II on/off but is still snug enough to keep things quiet.
One major change is the switch to the new, patented micro-ratchet chinstrap, as seen on the Neotec II. Unlike other ratcheting chinstraps, Shoei’s closure mechanism is made of 100-percent stainless steel — no plastic — for the utmost in safety. I like the design, which lets the user preset the general fit with an adjustable strap, and fine-tune it with the ratchet. It seems more secure and also more comfortable, similar to a traditional D-ring strap.
Other features include a new drop-down sun shield that’s 5mm longer than before; that doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s enough to cover nearly the entire eyeport and is less intrusive when glancing down at the gauges. A redesigned upper vent shutter is still one of the easiest to use with gloves on, and has two intake positions, both of which flow noticeable amounts of fresh air; five exhaust vents, none of which can be closed, draw it out.
Shoei focused on making the GT-Air II as quiet as possible, with new, thicker face shield beading that seals tightly against wind and water and a compact, aerodynamic shell (my size small weighs in at 3 lbs., 9.8 oz. with SRL2 installed). With the vents closed, the GT-Air II is comfortably quiet, but once the vents are open the noise level goes up considerably. The CNS-1 face shield is the same as that used on the original GT-Air, and comes with a Pinlock EVO fog-resistant insert. The GT-Air II’s new baseplate, however, now allows the shield to be opened just slightly for venting and defogging.
Overall, the GT-Air II is a solid step up from the previous version, with enough updates and upgrades to justify the roughly $50 price increase. It’s available in sizes XS-2XL, spread over three shell sizes, for $599 (solids) or $699 (graphics).

Transgender LPGA hopeful asked for testosterone test after Florida golf title: What to know
A women's professional golf mini tour announced Monday it has asked the winner of its most recent event to undergo testosterone testing after she became target of an onslaught of hateful messages for competing as a transgender woman.
Hailey Davidson won NXXT Women’s Classic Jan. 17 in Mission Inn Resort and Club in Florida. She posted on Instagram that she was surprised she won , as it was her first win in nearly three years. Still, she told Golfweek she has received several death threats since her win and had to delete her X account.
"It's always interesting how no one gets angry until there is any form of success," Davidson wrote on Instagram Saturday. "I will never allow hate to win, especially when based in some misinformation."
Monday morning, NXXT Women's Pro Tour issued a statement on the "public concerns" of Davidson's participation . It vowed to collect opinions from players on its gender policy and said it requested Davidson to undergo testosterone testing "ensure compliance with the appropriate guidelines."
Davidson said she not particularly worried about her place on the NXXT going forward, according to Golfweek. She has taken the test and expressed no qualms about the poll.
“At this point, we’re trying anything to see if we can cool the fire down a little,” said Davidson, who added that “generally a lot of the hate comes from people who aren’t playing.”
'How tough is she going to be?': In 2021, she became the second transgender woman to compete in LPGA Q-School
Transgender golfer still 'incredibly far' from LPGA Tour
Davidson's win was widely covered as evidence of her rise to the pinnacle of women's professional golf. particularly by conservative outlets.
But Davidson herself said she is "so incredibly far from the LPGA Tour with a lot of work to be done to possibly earn my way there one day," according to an Instagram post she shared Saturday .
The NXXT, formerly the East Coast Women’s Pro Golf Tour, has a new partnership this season with the Epson Tour, the developmental feeder tour for the LPGA. The top five earners on the NXXT points list will earn two exemptions into Epson Tour fields.
But in order for Davidson to receive those exemptions, NXXT's fields still needs to grow considerably by March to reach a minimum requirement for Epson.
Even then, Davidson would still need to win an Epson Tour event to achieve status on that tour. A top-10 finish in an Epson Tour event as a non-member would secure her a spot in the next week’s Epson field. The Epson Tour is the official qualifying tour for the LPGA , and players will be ranked with points from the tour to determine who qualifies for a LPGA tour card in 2025.
NXXT says it follows LPGA, USGA gender policies
The statement released by NXXT said it aimed to address "public concerns" about Davidson's win.
Even the statement on the organization's website received some vitriolic comments.
It explained that the tour's policies on gender were created to reflect those of the LPGA and USGA.
"When Hailey Davidson joined the tour, she complied with these policies by providing necessary documentation, including validation from the LPGA and USGA, which also facilitated her participation in the 2022 Q-School ," the statement read.
LPGA's gender policy , applicable to applicants for membership in LPGA Tour, Epson Tour, LET, LETAS and LPGA Professional states the following on it's website:
- Tournaments and membership are open to "transitioned female athletes," though they must identify themselves upon application. LPGA retains the the right to require the athlete to substantiate her status if questions on eligibility arise, the site states.
- The athlete must provide a written declaration that her gender identity is female, and can not be changed in the context of the sport for a minimum of four years.
- She must have undergone gender affirming surgery.
- She must have received hormone therapy for one year and "maintained testosterone levels in a verifiable manner sufficient to minimize or negate gender-related advantages in sport competitions."
Who is Hailey Davidson?
Three years ago, Davidson became the second transgender player to compete in LPGA Q-School and did not make the cut. She won her first professional title on the NWGA tour (National Women’s Golf Association), beating several LPGA players in the process, including Paula Creamer and Perrine Delacour.
The first, Bobbi Lancaster, was a 63-year-old physician from Arizona who earned Symetra Tour status in 2013, but ultimately spent her time traveling the country as a human rights advocate.
Davidson earned a scholarship to play on the men’s team at Wilmington University , an NCAA Division II school in Delaware, before transferring to the men’s team at Christopher Newport, an NCAA Division III school in Virginia.
On Sept. 24, 2015 – a date that’s tattooed on her right forearm – Davidson began undergoing hormone treatments.
In an Instagram post on the 7-year anniversary , she described the time since as "7 years of no longer hating myself, 7 years of losing muscle and slowly hitting the ball shorter day after day, and 7 years of finally being who I am regardless of what anyone else had to say."
The Daily Lowdown: Adele delights fans with world tour hint - but there's a catch
The easy on me hitmaker is continuing her residency in las vegas.
Welcome to the Daily Lowdown podcast from HELLO! . In this episode, we're chatting about Adele hinting to her fans that she will put on a world tour, but there's a catch.
Not only that, but Taylor Swift could be set for an appearance in the crowd at the upcoming Super Bowl after Travis Kelce's team won big in Baltimore, and Nicki Minaj fuels flames after releasing a track called Big Foot, which many are convinced is a "diss track" about Megan Thee Stallion.
Listen to the episode in full below…
Adele has insisted with her fans that she will put on a world tour – but before fans get excited, there's a catch. While performing in Las Vegas recently as part of her ongoing residency, the Easy On Me hitmaker said that when she releases a new album she promises to tour to see her fans around the globe, but we are going to be waiting a while.
Adele said she isn't heading back into the studio anytime soon to record new material, and instead wants to take a well-earned break after more than six months performing in Sin City, adding that she won't be putting pen to paper for quite some time. The Grammy-winner, who is famously not the biggest fan of performing live, previously told the crowd in Vegas that she'll be spending quality time with friends and family. Adele's residency, which she extended at the end of 2023, will run until June.

It looks like Taylor Swift is heading to the Superbowl. No, not to grace the stage for the half-time show, but instead she'll likely be appearing in the crowd to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce after his team The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, securing their spot in the huge NFL match. Taylor and Travis were spotted embracing after the game finished in Maryland in a rare PDA moment, which Swifties loved witnessing. Travis and the team will head to Las Vegas for the Superbowl, where they will play the San Francisco 49ers. Meanwhile, Usher will be the musical guest for the Half Time Show when the Superbowl takes place on February 11.
Jay Z has put to bed rumours of a new album. The legendary rapper and boss of Roc Nation was at the centre of reports that began circulating over the weekend suggesting he was due to put out a new album, however, the official accounts for Jay's business on social media retweeted a story saying it was 'news' to them, meaning it's not looking like we'll be getting new music from Beyonce's husband anytime soon. We'll be here patiently waiting…
Nicki Minaj has sparked controversy after the rapper began lashing out at fellow artist Megan Thee Stallion online over the weekend. It all started when Megan dropped her new song, Hiss, which seemingly had a line aimed at Nicki in it. This then prompted the Super Bass hitmaker to release her song, Big Foot, which is labelled a diss track at Megan. In the new song, fans are speculating that Nicki refers to Megan's 2020 altercation with Tory Lanez which saw her getting shot in the foot. Tory has since been found guilty and has been sentenced to ten years in prison. Meanwhile, Megan is yet to comment on the very public beef but Nicki's fans seem to be divided by the public fallout.
But Nicki seems to be keeping booked and busy away from the fallout, as it's been announced that she will be taking to the stage at Wireless festival this summer in London. The rapper, who is also going on a world tour this year, will head to Finsbury Park to headline the festival alongside other big names that have been announced such as Doja Cat, 21 Savage and British grime rapper, J Hus.
Wireless takes place across three days in July and tickets will be available from Wednesday.

Harry Styles and Girlfriend Taylor Russell Going Strong as They Spend Low-Key Day Together in London
Since they were first linked last June, the pair has been spotted getting cozy and supporting each other's artistic endeavors
Harry Styles and Taylor Russell are still golden !
The “As It Was” singer, 29, and the Bones and All star, also 29, bundled up to brave the London cold together on Friday.
The couple was spotted walking side-by-side in the U.K. capital's Hampstead neighborhood, where they both sported black coats, caps and sneakers for the low-key day out.
Though they have yet to publicly confirm their relationship, Styles and Russell have been romantically linked since last June, when a fan of the musician shared a series of photos on TikTok of the pair getting into a car together.
The following month, with rumors of a romance between the two still circulating, Russell attended one of Styles’ Love on Tour stops in Vienna.
At the Austria concert, the Escape Room star was seen dancing along to the singer’s hit song “Watermelon Sugar” in the VIP section, per photos obtained by TMZ .
Also in July 2023, the couple stepped out together in Vienna to enjoy a day walking around the city, per a fan TikTok , and Russell attended another one of Styles' concerts, this time at his last Love on Tour stop in Reggio Emilia, Italy .
At the emotional final show, a concertgoer captured a photo of the actress enjoying the performance — but this time from the crowd.
In August, Styles reciprocated the love, showing Russell support by attending the opening night gala of her play The Effect at the National Theater in London.
After the performance, the couple was spotted cozying up to each other for the first time at an afterparty, photos obtained by The Daily Mail show.
In the shots, the couple was all smiles, and Russell could be seen with her hand on Styles’ shoulder, while his hand rested on her lower back. Also at the afterparty, the couple chatted with Styles’ longtime friend James Corden and his wife, Julia Carey , both of whom were seen hugging Russell.

Weeks later, Russell opened up about her expectations in a relationship in an interview with The Face magazine — which was published just two days after she and Styles were spotted holding hands in London, per a fan video.
“I’m never going to be volunteering all of my feelings. I’m somebody who, annoyingly, complicatedly, needs things to be asked and pulled from me to talk about it,” she told the magazine. “But even then I’m like, ’I’m sorry, is this too much? Is this too much?’ So I need a partner who is going to do that or else it’s never going to work.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the actress discussed her move to London and how it has opened her up to new experiences — including difficult ones, like heartbreak.
"You are going to be hurt,” she told The Face . “That’s the tax. The tax on a real relationship is the reality that you will get hurt, you will [have] grief, something will be lost at some point and that’s OK. It’s worth it.”
Russell and Styles have continued to keep their relationship largely private, but have been spotted out in London together , as well as Las Vegas, where they cozied up to each other a U2 concert last November.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ Resumes Rehearsals 13 Days Before Tokyo Shows
Taylor Swift is back in rehearsals for the next leg of her Eras Tour .
Natalie Lecznar , one of Swift’s Eras Tour dancers, revealed that the singer is officially gearing up to hit the stage once again.
“13 Days. First day of rehearsals for tour,” Lecznar shared via Instagram Stories on Thursday, January 25. “Countdown to Tokyo.”
Swift and her team will be taking a trip to Japan for four tour stops in February before jetting to Australia later that same month. The musician is set to hit everywhere from Japan to Europe on the tour’s international leg, which runs from February to August of this year.

The same day that Swift and her dancers resumed rehearsals happened to be the one year anniversary of the crew’s Eras Tour journey.
“One year ago today, this journey began in a rehearsal room with some of the hardest working, dedicated, and most talented humans!” Lecznar captioned a black-and-white Instagram post of Swift . “Thank you @nopenother for bringing it all together and making us shimmer, and to our fearless leader Taylor Swift, you inspire us all. Thank you for taking us on this world journey with you! See you soon tour fam, See you soon.”
Lecznar gave a special shout-out to famed choreographer Mandy Moore who put together all the Eras Tour moves.
“I love that she is a hard worker, she cares so much about what she’s doing, she wants the fans to have the best show possible, and she stops at nothing to get that done,” Moore told Entertainment Tonight in November 2023 about working with Swift. “And I appreciate it because I like to work hard too, and we are really alike. We had a really good working relationship; it was awesome.”
Swift officially kicked off her Eras Tour in March 2023, months after the now-infamous Ticketmaster debacle which caused chaos among Swifties when many of them were left without tickets.
“It’s really difficult for me to trust an outside entity with these relationships and loyalties, and excruciating for me to just watch mistakes happen with no recourse,” Swift shared in a statement following the incident. “There are a multitude of reasons why people had such a hard time trying to get tickets and I’m trying to figure out how this situation can be improved moving forward.”
While she’s since added various other dates to the Eras Tour lineup, Swift also released a film version of her concert, titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour . The movie was nominated for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement at the Golden Globes earlier this month after grossing $250.3 million worldwide at the box office. (The win ultimately went to Barbie .)

The next leg of Swift’s tour overlaps with the NFL postseason. If her boyfriend, Travis Kelce , and the Kansas City Chiefs make it to the Super Bowl , fans are speculating whether Swift will make the trip from Tokyo to Las Vegas, where this year’s big game is being held on February 11.

Drew Barrymore previously teased that it’s possible Swift make it to the game — even if she flies commercial.
“If she left Tokyo at midnight. The flight time is 11 hours and 35 minutes approximately from Tokyo to Vegas, so she might arrive at 10:30 p.m., but on February 10, leaving her a full night’s sleep,” Barrymore explained during a November 2023 episode of The Drew Barrymore Show .

Lena, our guide in Moscow was excellent. She was very knowledgable and could answer any question we had for her. We liked that she could pick up on our interests and take us places we might not have thought of to go. When we realized that one of the places we had chosen to see would probably not be that interesting to us, she was able to arrange entry to the Diamond Fund and the Armoury for us. Riding the Metro with Lena was a real adventure and a lot of fun. In Saint Petersburg we found Anna well versed in the history of the Tsars and in the Hermitage collection. Arkady in Veliky Novgorod was a very good guide and answered all of our questions with ease. Novgorod was perhaps a long way to go for a day trip, but we did enjoy it. Vasily was a great driver to have and kept us safe with good humour and skill. We enjoyed ourselves so much, my daughter says she is already planning to return. We would both have no hesistation to recommend ExpresstoRussia to anyone we know.
Just wanted to let you know that My grandson Bruno and I couldn´t have been more pleased with our week in Moscow (6/15 - 6/21). We were absolutely enchanted with the whole experience, including getting lost a couple of times in the Metro during our free time. Although both our guides (both Eleanas) were excellent, I would particularly commend the first one (she took us to the Tatiakov, the KGB tour, and to that beautiful cemetery where so many great Russian artists, authors, composers, musicians, militarists, and politicians are buried). Her knowledge is encyclopedic; and her understanding of today´s Russia as a product of its past was, for us, truly enlightening. I will be taking another tour in Russia, with my wife, within the next two or three years. I will be in touch with you when the time comes. Meanwhile, I will refer you to other potential visitors to Russia as I meet them.

Moscow, a City Like No Other
Moscow is Russia’s largest city with a population of between 12 and 13 million. It is also Europe’s largest city and when you visit Moscow, you can feel it. The layout and architecture of the city is eclectic, ranging from crooked, ancient streets and alleyways to wide, bustling boulevards, from medieval churches to Stalin skyscrapers and to modern, glass buildings towering over everything and of course in the center of it all is the Kremlin and the magnificent Red Square. Moscow is also home to a fantastic, efficient and very beautiful metro system – each station having its own special design. In fact, Express to Russia’s Moscow metro tours and excursions are some of our most popular attractions that we offer. On our Moscow tours, you will see this and more.
Moscow Tours centering on Russian History
Moscow has a long and interesting history and has been the capital of Russia in many of its different iterations – capital of the Grand Duchy of Moscow , the Russian Empire and of course the Soviet Union (who could ever forget the Soviet Union?). Moscow, was founded in the 12th century by Prince Yuri Dolgaruki (Yuri of the long arms – he really did have long arms!). From that time on, it was home to the Russian Tsars until Peter the Great moved the capital to St. Petersburg in 1703. The city has survived invasions and sieges from the Mongols, the Tartars, the Poles, Lithuanians and Napoleon but has always persevered. Our Moscow tours will enlighten you on this great history and give you insights into Muscovites and their unique culture. Our Moscow tours show you what the city is like today but also brings to life the past. Moscow never seems to sleep and is bursting with energy. A Moscow tour with Express to Russia is truly the best way of getting to know Russia’s largest and most vibrant city.
Frequently Asked Questions From Our Travelers
What is the best time to visit moscow.
Any time of year is fine depending on what you plan to do. Summertime is pleasantly warm, ideal for exploring the city and its vibrant atmosphere, but Moscow will be much busier and accommodation is more expensive. Winter can be quite cold but beautiful nonetheless, and this is unproblematic if you intend to spend most of your trip in museums and galleries. There are also various festivals and events organised throughout the year. For more information about the best time to visit, read our guide
How many days are enough in Moscow?
If you plan your itinerary strategically and aren’t averse to a packed schedule, you can cover Moscow’s main sights over a long weekend. Most popular attractions are in the city centre, and the Moscow Metro allows you to cover much ground in a small amount of time. Ensure that your accommodation is fairly central and book tickets in advance, so that you can make the most of your days. For an informative and well-organised day out, check out our Moscow day tours with options to suit all interests.
Do they speak English in Moscow?
As Russia’s capital city, tourists are well accommodated in Moscow. There should be English-speaking staff in restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and attractions in tourist hotspots, and there are also English-speaking tourist police. Transport services have English translations on their maps and English announcements via intercom; alternatively, order taxis from the Yandex Taxi app (Russian Uber), though it’s unlikely that your taxi driver will speak English. If you get stuck and cannot communicate, it’s fine to use Google Translate.
Is it safe to travel to Moscow?
It is no less safe to travel to Moscow than to any European city if you exercise common sense and look after your belongings. As with every city some regions can be more unsavoury than others, but no tourist attractions are located there. The traffic in Moscow is notorious, so exercise caution when crossing roads. Do not take unlicensed taxis; book in advance or take public transport, which is widespread and perfectly safe. If you encounter any problems, look for the special tourist police who can help you.
