It can be tempting to shun safety by shedding your protective clothing when it’s hot but it’s not worth the risk.
We carry a stock of lightweight summer motorbike clothing, and you can order even more via our online shop, to keep you looking and feeling cool but also protected should the worst happen.
This month we’re highlighting our range of motorbike jeans which are popular at this time of year with riders wanting to be smart when it comes to both fashion and safety and not have to wear extra layers of protective clothing.
We stock two brands of motorbike jeans – Route One and Rev’It – available in a variety of styles for men and women.
The Route One denim jeans, priced from £100, are fitted with a 100% DuPont Kevlar fibre lining to the knees, hips and buttocks impact areas and pre-fitted adjustable CE knee armour. There are also pockets for optional CE hip armour.
The range-topping £149.99 jeans have a removable top-to-bottom 100% DuPont Kevlar Fibre Twill protective lining and you can also take out the Reissa waterproof and breathable membrane and knee armour.
The Rev’It jeans, from £160 to £220, use strong Cordura denim with special fibres to make them more resistant to abrasion.
They also feature Rev’It PWR Shield protection – an aramid fabric that is cooler to wear but has top-quality cut, tear and abrasion resistance – at impact areas. A Coolmax mesh lining wicks moisture to help stop you getting too warm.
Seesmart CE-approved Level 1 knee armour is standard and there are pockets for optional hip protection.
