Ducati once again has partnered with Arai and REV’IT! to offer some unique gear. The latest items – the Arai HV-1 Pro full-face helmet and the REV’IT! Tour HV jacket – are both designed with reflective inserts and florescent yellow details to increase rider safety.The Arai HV-1 Pro full-face helmet features an external shell in Super Fiber Laminate that makes it robust and lightweight. This ensures optimum ergonomics for the best fit, and the shell’s design reduces turbulence.
The Ducati Arai HV-1 Pro was designed with vents and extractors that optimize airflow and prevent the visor from misting. The HV-1 Pro also arrives with Arai’s Pro Shade System, which features an external sun shield that can be raised and lowered quickly.The perfect mate for the Arai is the REV’IT! Tour HV fabric jacket, which is designed for touring on bikes like the Ducati Multistrada, but also everyday use. A year-round jacket thanks to a removable liner, the Tour HV is 100-percent waterproof, and has CE protectors in shoulders and elbows. The jacket also features an inner slot for a G2 Wave back protector (sold separately).Both garments are available at all Ducati Stores and at DucatiUSA.com. Visit your local Store to request further information and pricing details.
This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati–has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster–or are the changes worth it? In the second part of the show, we chat with Nick Ienatsch, Founder and Head Instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. He says: “We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders. The best way to make safe riders is to make good riders.“ We hope you enjoy this episode!
