It can be tempting to shed protective motorbike clothing, as summer temperatures soar, in a bid to keep cooler.
We’ve all seen bikers wearing shorts, vests and even flip-flops (!) but that’s certainly not cool, should you be in a collision or take a tumble.
Modern motorbike clothing features lightweight products designed to be cooler and casual, without sacrificing protection.
The Rev’It brand is particularly popular – we’re a major stockist with a good range in the showroom and access to the full range online.
With adventure, urban and sport collections and lifestyle wear, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re after modern style or a retro look.
Rev’It has trousers, jackets, gloves and boots that protect the wearer without being hot and heavy. They look stylish whether you’re on the highway or high street so no need to smarten up when you arrive at your destination.
Jeans are a big seller and Rev’It offers four different styles – loose, regular, slim and tapered.
The denim has a naturally high tear strength and is boosted by the Rev’It specially-developed shield lining. Some jeans have a lining in the knee, hip and backside impact areas while others are fully lined.
All jeans come with knee protectors and are prepared for an additional insert at the hips.
Rev’It also offers a selection of shorter ankle boots tailored to your riding preferences including trendy sneakers with heel and toe cups and injected ankle cups to offer protection.
The urban collection of jackets, which look good with jeans, features timeless designs combined with technically-advanced materials. Some summer jackets have a removable waterproof liner.
When it comes to lightweight gloves, a wide variety of materials and fabrics includes goatskin, cowhide, 3D air mesh, corduroy, two-way stretch, suede and more.
