Weise Motorcycle Gloves
The UK motorcycle apparel company Weise has released two new gloves — the track-specific Vortex and the short-cuff Daytona, both featuring full grain leather construction and the Knox Scaphoid Protection System.
Weise Vortex Motorcycle Glove
Harley-Davidson Woman’s Jacket
The snow is melting as the sun is beginning to shine. With wildly swinging temperatures on the horizon, the new women’s Moxie 3-in-1 Leather Jacket from Harley-Davidson MotorClothes is the perfect solution for riding through the spring and summer.
With a sleek silhouette and ultra-trim price tag, the new women’s Spontaneity Leather Jacket, ($275), from the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes line offers a great look and value this holiday season. Its action back and pre-curved sleeves enhance riding comfort, while the combination of embroidered and printed graphics adds style both on and off the bike.
Two hand-warmer pockets, two vertical inside pockets and the riding-friendly mandarin collar complete the full-featured package. It’s available in XS-3W sizes.
Arai Helmets has added yet another new graphic design called the "Akira" to its VX-Pro3 off-road helmet line. Named for motocrosser Akira Narita, it is available now, in four different colors: Red, Blue, Silver, and Orange.
The new Akira is the latest of several mid-season-graphic additions to Arai’s VX-Pro3 dirt model. The others are two Osborne Replicas (White and Black), and two Samurai graphics (White and Black),
Hassle-Free Retractable Sun Shield
The days (and hassle) of stopping a ride to either add or remove a tinted face shield are over, thanks to the new men’s Half Helmet with Retractable Sun Shield ($175) from the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes line. When light conditions change, a quick pull or push deploys or retracts the internal tinted shield, allowing you to remain focused on the road. Like most MotorClothes helmets, this one features a removable, washable inner liner, double D-ring chin strap and comes with a protective bag.
Proving you can’t have too much of a good thing, the engineers at Scorpion Sports have revamped the original Venom version of their race-spec glove to create the all-new Klaw. In keeping with Scorpion’s goal of providing ExoSkeletal protection, upgraded goatskin leather is combined with "PowerStretch" panels across the knuckles and a protective plate over the back of the hand. The result is an expanded range of flexibility and a perfect fit, without sacrificing protection.
Working in conjunction with the protective plate is the patented ExoTec CE-approved armor.
Can a less expensive motorcycle jacket be a premium motorcycling product? The performance of the DSX motorcycle jacket makes the answer to that question a resounding "Yes!" While denim may not be the textile material of choice for some riders–and it caused no shortage of debate within Cortech before its release–I’m a confirmed Levi’s 501 button fly kind of guy.
