Lightweight and highly ventilated, the Troy Lee Designs GP Air Jersey is designed for the dog days of summer conditions that are right around the corner. Large-holed mesh fiber polyester material with a ribbed stretch v-neck collar let the good air in, a tapered and angled cuff design and gel print on the tail keep the jersey in place, while a drop-tail design aids the pursuit of comfort.
Klim says these babies are going to redefine the trail experience, thanks to excellent optical clarity, a huge field of view and fit. Ventilation and moisture management systems aggressively combat fogging and the super-thin frame design ensure compatibility with most open-face helmets. You got your polycarbonate UV400 single lens with 100% UVA and UVB protection, you got your Fogtech HD anti-fog lens coating, triple layer breathable face foam, and a 3-post tear-off system.
The Indian Scout packs an impressive V-Twin between your legs, but like nearly every engine, the stock exhaust system leaves some performance on the table. With the Vance & Hines Hi-Output Grenades exhaust, you get an innovative three step muffler and tapered CNC machined billet end caps. Staggered with a discreet crossover section, Hi-Output Grenades have an aggressive 2-into-2 stance matched by an equally pulse quickening exhaust note. At $720, it’s 20% off full retail price.
Many new motorcycles are switching to LED lighting, and if you’re looking to convert your Harley-Davidson to LEDs, Kuryakyn has a solution for you. This DOT-approved LED headlamp provides superior visibility and additional wow factor over the stock headlight, and the included Bluetooth controller and downloadable IOS or Android app lets you customize the outer halo ring with infinite color options. Powerful high-output LEDs with integrated outer white halo ring significantly enhance the rider’s nighttime field of vision and all-around visibility. The latest in advanced LED technology offers extremely reduced current draw (only 1.5 amps for the low beam, 3.0 amps for high beam), along with a color temperature rating at 6,000K for optimum brightness. The kit includes all mounting hardware and uses a standard H4, 3-blade connector. The housing is cast aluminum and sealed, and the polycarbonate lens features a non-yellowing, scratch resistant hard coating for unmatched durability.
Part of Alpinestars’ Oscar collection, the simple and svelte design of the Oscar Shelley Jacket compliments the female form, while sacrificing nothing in terms of protection. The removable CE certified shoulder and elbow protection and option to upgrade to an Alpinestars back protector gives the rider excellent impact protection, while the 1.0mm washed and waxed cowhide leather construction provides a comfortable yet tough exterior that not only looks great, but offers superior abrasion resistance. Pre-curved sleeves are optimized for the riding position, while a removable flannel vest liner helps keep body temps under control in cool weather.
Off-road riders looking for sleek backpack will appreciate the Wolfy Escape Pak. The no-snag narrow profile is a must for tight singletrack. At heart it’s a simple pack constructed almost entirely from sturdy ballistics nylon. Breathable mesh shoulder straps pivot to contour around almost any body type, shoulder shape, jacket or compression suit. An adjustable sternum strap improves the stability, comfort and fit for both men and women. The Wolfy waist belt helps get the weight off the shoulders and keeps the pack in place during aggressive riding.
The roomy main compartment is complemented by an easy access outside zip pocket and two handy side pockets. Adding to its value is the included 3-liter reservoir by HydraPak that fits in its own foam-lined pocket. The Escape Pak allows the hose to be routed to either the left or right shoulder strap where the “stay close” no-flop hose management system keeps it in place.
The outside of the pack features a Wolfman Rolie Patch which makes it easy to add more carrying capacity. Mix and match with different accessories to make the Escape Pak suit each different ride. Like all Wolfman luggage, it’s made in the USA.
Being that it’s the Fourth of July, riding nearly anywhere in the US of A is going to be hot. No matter what you ride, the Triumph Cool Vest will help you stay, uh, cool. Cooling vests function through the science of evaporative cooling – the unique fabric in the vest absorbs and stores water which then evaporates in the presence of warm air. This evaporation provides a cooling effect to the wearer, a must-have on those hot, summer days in the saddle. You can use it over and over again by simply submerging it in cold water, and the cooling benefits last for hours.
The Saint Adventure Cargo Pants could easily pass off as work pants, but are most at home on a motorcycle. UHMWPE construction takes cargo styling up a notch, offering 360-degree tensile strength and abrasion resistance. The Saint Cargo Pants are built to last, with buttoned cargo pockets at the thighs and zippered back pockets. Seams are triple stitched for extra burst protection. The waxed cotton canvas provides decent weather protection, but a Gore-Tex liner it is not. Another point to note is the lack of knee armor or even a pocket to insert knee armor, though users report wearing their own knee protection underneath with no issues. Otherwise, the Saint Adventure Cargo Pant is a good fit for classic bikes, scramblers, or even cruisers. At $199, it’s nearly half off full retail price.
Airbag protection is all the rage these days, and the Dainese Misano D-Air Perforated Jacket is Dainese’s pinnacle of summer track protection technology for the aggressive sport rider. The Dainese Misano D-Air Perforated Jacket offers the exclusive D-Air System pioneered in the Dainese Misano Race Suit in a more versatile format that is ready to save your bacon on the street or track.
Dainese’s Intelligent Protection System combines a wireless airbag system with highly evolved microprocessor technology to increase the level of protection available to motorcyclists. Internal sensors and a GPS signal distinguish the factors inherent in an accident and inflates the airbag, adding extra protection to the collarbones, shoulders, chest, and back. GPS allows rider telemetry via USB port, including lap times, maximum speed and trajectory plotting with instantaneous speed and acceleration. All the electronic components are housed within the Misano’s speed hump.
In the event of a violent crash, D-air can trigger in less than 15 milliseconds. When the crash dynamics are less sudden, the sophisticated triggering algorithm assesses conditions and can decide upon a slightly longer triggering time. D-air works in synergy with Pro-Armor impact protectors, shielding the shoulders and collar bones in the rider’s body. D-air reduces the risk of direct helmet impact on the collar bones, and also limits and reduces helmet movement during rolling. Protection is achieved without compromising the ergonomics and comfort of an aggressive-fit leather jacket.
Tests carried out in accordance with the current European standards for shoulder armor (EN 1621-1/97) show that D-air protection reduces the force transferred by over 85% compared with traditional composite body armor. At $999.99, you’re saving nearly $700 off the full retail price.
With the REV’IT Zircon Jacket, the classic British 4 pocket waxed cotton motorcycle jacket has a new take. The waxed coated cotton twill and contrasting Oxford fabric is durable yet still lends a definitive heritage look, while the Hydratex waterproof and breathable membrane underneath ensures the interior of this jacket stays dry no matter what. The Zircon Jacket also allows you to leave your layers at home, with a removable thermal liner for the colder months. CE certified Knox Lite armor at the elbows and shoulders offers superb impact protection without ruining the lines of the jacket or straying from its retro roots.
A Valentino Rossi helmet needs no introduction, but the Carbon Winter Test 2018 edition is a stunner, and at $900 it’s nearly half off the full retail price! In case you don’t know about the Pista GP R, it’s the pinnacle of AGV’s racing helmets. The AGV Pista GP-R Helmet features an integrated hydration system and MotoGP-developed metal air vents with an innovative external fin structure to capture maximum airflow in the front of the shell and increase air pressure on the rear exhaust, therefore increasing the speed of air transition inside the helmet, leading to higher cooling performance. The wind-tunnel-tested “biplano” spoiler has multiple wings to maximize aerodynamic performance and add stability at high speed. The extremely compact and light 100% carbon fiber shell’s shape is designed to minimize interference with the racing suit and limit risk of impact energy transfer to the collarbone, while the interior has an adaptable fit and places no stitching in sensitive areas.
If a thousand bucks for the Dainese D-Air system is still a bit steep for your airbag-craving wallet, Spidi has another solution with the DPS airbag vest. This extremely light and comfortable vest incorporates an inflatable neck airbag. A double cushion wraps around the user’s neck area and will inflate upon impact (via tether cord), increasing the level of safety in case of a crash. The system works with the rider’s helmet to reduce potentially damaging neck movements, thus limiting potentially dangerous leverage situations against the terrain’s surface.
