Joe Rocket Ballistic Adventure JacketAdding to Joe Rocket’s popular Ballistic series is the all new Ballistic Adventure jacket featuring a strategic combination of environmental protection, impact protection, and multi-season versatility.
Environmental protection starts with a double overstitched, water and U.V. resistant RockTexTM 600 outer chassis. For serious downpours, tucked in behind the 2-way main zipper and double cross-over storm flaps, the Adventure also includes a removable waterproof liner that is backed by an additional insulated full sleeve liner to take you well into colder climates.For when temps get hot, remove the liners and let the integrated Variable Flow ventilation system featuring 2 massive intakes at the chest and 2 more tucked behind the 2-way zippers at the sleeves, the combination of which flows heat and humidity through the jacket and out the dual, 8” rear exhaust vents. And for truly extreme heat, the lower sleeves are fully removable, flowing air up and into the entire top of the jacket.Complimenting this exceptional environmental protection is multi-layered impact protection that starts with an additional layer of resistant 840D Ballistic Nylon reinforcements at the shoulders and elbows. Underlying this is C.E. certified armor at the shoulders and elbows with a removable high density spine pad that can be upgraded to a C.E. certified spine pad insert or Speedmaster 2.0 C.E. Level 2 back protector.Keeping all this environmental and impact protection in place is an 8 point Surefit custom adjustment system with adjusters at the; biceps, forearms, wrists, and waist while integrated FlexFit expansion panels above the elbows drastically decrease arm strain.Providing the final touches of ride-friendly versatility are fine details like; an extended micro fiber lined collar, 3 outer pockets including a large lower rear cargo pocket, 4 internal pockets, extended back with zipper gussets for improved mobility, integrated hydration system pocket and port, 8” zipper for jacket to pant attachment, and a full 360° of reflective striping.Joe Rocket Ballistic Adventure Jacket:
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
