Icon Daytona DMH Jacket | QuickShift

Icon Motosports has taken the motorcyclist apparel paradigm and turned it upside down. Their designs are purposefully conceived to defy classification.  And their styles are bold and eye catching.

Take, for example, the spectacular Daytona DMH leather jacket ($600). Tapping imagery from skulls to poker—the aces-and-eights/spades-and-clubs motif evokes Wild Bill Hickok’s Dead Man’s Hand. The relaxed-fit jacket receives a vintage leather treatment, and includes removable CE-approved armor for your shoulders and elbows. Icon’s Mainframe Solid Rubatone helmet ($220) gives riders the protection and mysterious anonymity of a full-face helmet, and the matte black finish is the perfect match for the jacket.

The Hooligan pants ($110) may appear to be standard denim fashion jeans, but there is more than meets the eye. The hip-panels are double layered and Aramid reinforces the knees. A distressed look makes these pants another part of the perfectly interlocking puzzle.

Super Duty is the name given to Icon’s footwear ($90) and gloves ($50). Unusual for a motorcycle street boot, the Super Duty 2 stops just above the ankle, balancing comfort and protection. The deerskin gloves combine motocross technology with supporting streetable materials. Concealed padding preserves the cruiser look.
