As far as KTM protective clothing goes, for the adventure or touring rider, we really like this new outfit. It’s an official KTM product from their vast clothing range so you know it’s capable of lasting a Dakar event or two.
We have both the jacket and matching pants here made of sturdy materials with a large amount of internal armour hidden away inside. There’s also a map pocket on the left arm that you can use to hold your shopping list as you ride through your local Spar, or maybe not! They’re both well priced as well, which is nice.
Price: Defender jacket R4,152 Pants R3,320

This MX/off-road competition boot is widely known as one of the best money can buy. Many top racers around the world trust in the ultimate protection the Tech 10 offers.
It’s actually two boots in one with an inner boot and an outer shell to prevent painful and hospital inducing twisting forces, which is nice. But the most interesting thing here is this new ultra-bright black, Day-Glo yellow and pink Limited edition colour scheme, ideal for both mountain climbing adventures and a perhaps vibrant disco afterwards?

This is arguably one of the most advanced MX/off-road helmets on the market. Indeed, Bell say it’s the most advanced helmet they’ve made for dudes in the dirt.
The Flex has three stages of inner layers to disperse a heavy impact and the shell is made from an ultra-light Tri-matrix, which all sounds very posh.
These two Troy Lee designed options are replicas from the famous USA rider, Jeremy McGrath, or so they say. Either way they’re very flamboyant and distinctive. The Bell Moto-9 Flex is far from cheap though but, top quality and high protection never is, right?
