BMW Motorrad: 2013 Rider Equipment Lineup
BMW Motorrad Motorcycle Gear
Many new products and a great many refinements are the new features of the BMW Motorrad rider’s equipment for the 2013 season. They offer added enhancements to safety in the classical equipment as well as fresh designs for the leisure and fan articles.
BMW Motorrad has been developing its own motorcycle helmets since 1961. The System 6 EVO helmet is the current highlight of the “BMW helmets” products and is yet again setting the standard in safety, comfort, and design. The Race helmet, an all new development by “BMW helmets”, is already being used by five racers in the International German Motorcycle Championship IDM. The AirFlow 2 and Enduro helmets will be starting the 2013 season with new trendy colours and trims.
Likewise an all new development by BMW Motorrad is the GS Dry suit, which is intended above all for beginners. The Rallye suit, on the other hand, has long become established on all continents. Nevertheless, we have managed to improve this in a number of relevant details. It is now equipped, for instance, with the new NP2 protectors.
The boots that BMW Motorrad is offering riders boast a wide range of functions and appealing designs. Like their predecessors, the new Allround boot is intended for beginners. Sporting a new colour and numerous improvements, the tried and tested Rally GS Pro boot is to go where motorcycle boots have to fulfil the highest demands: offroad. For the city tour we recommend the Urban boot for him and her, likewise a new addition to the range.
Gloves are an indispensable part of motorcycle equipment. The BMW Motorradrange provides the right model for every taste. The GS Dry gloves for both ladies and men are watertight and breathable enduro gloves thanks to GORE-TEX® X-TRAFIT™. The summer will be providing two models, the Rallye gloves for offroad and the ProSummer gloves for tours, both characterised by their lightweight and highly robust designs. Finally, the familiar ProWinter gloves were refined in many details.
By its very definition, functional wear always embodies a special utility value. That’s good – and even better when it comes from the BMW Motorrad collection. Some excellent examples are the Ride shirts. Also, they are made of recycled materials, and so boost that good feeling of having contributed to sustainability. The new Ride windbreaker finds space in the smallest of pockets. The Ride fleece jacket will be available in new colours from the 2013 season.
One fantastic new product comes into play in the form of the Cool Down vest. Simple and ingenious, its HyperKewl™ technology generates a directly perceptible and pleasant cooling effect over many hours.
Whether professional or learner, safety conscious riders are relying on the new Street neck brace. No motorcyclist should get into a situation where he must rely on his protectors. But when this should be the case, they should take as much punishment as the NP2 protectors from BMW Motorrad with their extremely high impact absorption properties. The material for this new protector generation is an exclusive development for BMW Motorrad and is now being used in all new jackets, trousers, and suits.
Of course, this NP2 technology has also been integrated in the back protector and the protector vest – likewise two new products from BMW Motorrad in their function wear portfolio.
The classical kidney belt for beginners and the modular Pro kidney belt with detachable fleece lining and tailbone protector, both new to the range, complete the equipment for safety conscious motorcyclists.
Presenting a wealth of high quality and useful wear and lifestyle products, the leisure collections from BMW Motorrad Stylecannot fail to make the hearts of fans beat faster. Whether fantastically designed jackets and shirts for him and her, distinctive caps and belts, or high quality bags or sleeves for smartphones and tablet PCs – the collection fuels ideas for the perfect gift.
This season, BMW Motorrad Style will be excelling itself with its successful leisure collections, two new lines, and a small supplement in the form of a USB stick in the BMW Motorrad Style Logo collection.
