We all know that protective leather race gloves can be horrendously expensive, just because of the badge or label seen on the wrist. Well how about these for something a little different?
The price is most certainly right when you consider they’re made from leather and Kevlar, so they’ll undoubtedly guard your digits in the event of a mishap or fall. And there are also air-intakes to keep the palms cool and dry.
Here we have the black/white option, and of course the black/ day-glo yellow ones, which most racers adore. Very impressive for the price, right?

We haven’t seen much from Arlen Ness clothing lately, so these new leather jackets caught our eye. Arlen Ness is a famous chopper customizer from the USA, who lent his name to this brand, which is also associated with Berik.
These hefty leather jackets have full armour protection in the areas most needed, but the main thing is they look fantastic. Two colour options here are, black/chrome and black/white, which will suit either new or classic machines.
Interestingly they’re half the price of some ‘European’ brands, even though they’re probably made in the same factory?

We all enjoy a decent and unique pair of sunglasses, so how about these new variants from San Francisco, USA? We’ve even seen top Hollywood stars wearing these very cool, flat-lens, Rythem sunglasses, with a mirrored lens. And they have eco-friendly 100% bamboo arms, for even more eco-friendly film star attraction.
The attractive goggles are for any MX/off-road type riding, with adjustable nose guard, ant-fog lenses and efficient air intakes around the frame, to keep things cool and clear.
Obviously coming from San Francisco all items are earthquake proof, maybe?

Winter is just around the corner so you might need a very warm winter outfit, especially if you own any of the desireable KTM adventure range?
If so, you might want to take a look at this new 2019 Defender suit. Both items are 100% waterproof/windproof and therefore will repel any icy gale that blatantly and rudely attacks you, because of the fancy internal membrane.
You’ll also notice the addition of real leather panels in various areas, which give the whole suit a very cool retro and rather posh feel.
