Thanksgiving means it’s time for family, football, turkey, and, of course, Black Friday shopping. While you’ve been scarfing down stuffing or watching the Bears down the Lions (spoiler alert!), we looked around and compiled a list of some of the best Black Friday deals for motorcyclists.
The Troy Lee SE-3 Reflection helmet is made from a hand-laid pre-preg carbon composite shell lined with kevlar for reinforcement. The adjustable visor is mounted using lightweight machined cross-top titanium screws for extra durability and resistance to corrosion. Titanium is also used for the strap’s D-rings.
A high flow intake vent and integrated brow vents draw cool air to your face while five rear exhausts evacuate the warmer air. All ports are protected with stainless steel mesh grills to keep out debris without restricting air flow.
The Bilt Techno 2.0 is a modular helmet that comes with Sena’s DWO-5 Bluetooth headset built-in. The integrated communicator can work headsets in a 430 yard radius, and can also be connected to smartphones to answer calls, receive from a directions GPS navigation system or play music.
The helmet fits round oval shaped heads and comes with an internal drop-down sun shield.
The Stripes D1 jacket from Dainese is perfect for those who want a nice-looking leather jacket with minimal branding. The jacket is made from full grain cowhide with suede paneling. The Stripes D1 comes with a removable thermal liner and Dainese’s TechFrame 3D bubble internal lining.
CE armor protects the shoulders and elbows, and the jacket fits a back protector (sold separately) for additional safety.
The Bull-it SR6 jeans look like regular denims but are designed for riders. The material is abrasion resistant, with Bull-it claiming they can handle 6.26 seconds of abrasion protection, compared to the 5.8 seconds provided by typical 1.4mm cowhide leather.
On sale now are the regular fit cut for men, offering a straight leg that fits either inside or over boots, or the SR6 Flex jeans for women with a snug fit on the waist, hip and thigh. Both styles can fit knee and hip protectors, though unfortunately, they are sold separately.
The Instinct is Fox Racing’s pro-level motocross boot, and a favorite of notable riders such as Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, Ken Roczen and Tim Gajser. The 2018 edition comes with a new rubber compound for the sole and on the medial side for better grip and protection from burns.
The hinge is designed to protect against hyperextension and hyperflexion, as well as rotational injuries. TPU protects the shin and rear of the boot. The four ball and socket type clasps are designed for easy opening and closing, while a pivoting buckle design allows freedom of movement without creating pressure points.
The Cardo Smart Pack comes with pair of wireless communicators. The Dynamic Meshwork Communication system keeps up to 15 other Cardo users in conatct, while those using headsets from other manufacturers can also connect via Bluetooth.
The headsets are also compatible GPS navigation devices, smartphones and music players and come with FM radio built-in. Cardo claims 8-10 hours of listening time and up to 13 hours of talk-time.
The Nelson Rigg CL1060 backpack is designed for the motorcycle commuter who either don’t have a set of panniers to carry their belongings, or who simply want to be able to take their stuff with them when they reach their destination. The backpack has a 16L capacity, with an internal sleeve for laptops or tablets and a compartment for a hydration bladder (sold separately).
The bag comes with a mesh helmet holder so you don’t have to leave it locked up on your bike.
The GearWrench 8940 ratcheting screwdriver kit can be a versatile piece of any garage. The fine-toothed reversible ratcheting mechanism is simple to use. The kit includes several interchangeable shafts, including flexible bit and socket driver shafts to help get to hard-to-reach spots.
Having a good set of tools in the garage is great, but does no good if something should happen while you’re out on the road. This roadside tool kit from Stockton may be just what you need in case of emergency. The kit packs 29 items, including various wrenches, screwdrivers and pliers, wires and fuses for electrical work, and a fuel hose.
Best of all, the entire kit fits inside the organizer which can be easily rolled up and stashed away in a pannier. The kit is available in either metric or SAE tool sizes.
The MB1100 battery maintainer from Megaboost is designed to work with lithium-ion batteries, as well as lead acid batteries up to 40 Ah. The MB1100 is protected against reverse polarity and overcharging, so it’s safe to leave attached for long periods of time.
The MB1100 is lightweight and compact, with a rubberized base to prevent scratching paint. It’s also impact and IP65 water resistant.
