NEW AND NOTED: MOTORCYCLE GEAR
It’s a good time to be hunting for new motorcycle gear. Manufacturers have finally cottoned on to the fact that style and functionality need not be mutually exclusive—and riders are reaping the benefits.
Saint Bromley Flight Jacket We’ve been keeping a close eye on Saint; the Australian company’s doing interesting things with hi-tech fabrics, and their styling is always spot-on. But, until now, one ingredient’s been missing: armor.
Biltwell Inc. Overland Goggles Vintage-flavored open face helmets are en vogue right now, and a decent pair of goggles sure beats riding in your shades. Enter Biltwell Inc.’s new Overlands. They’re packed with typical MX goggle features: a wide eye port, moisture-wicking padding and vents to cut out fogging. But they’re a lot more subdued than your average piece of MX kit. And at around $66, they won’t break the bank.
Held Touch Gloves The German family-run company Held has been designing gloves for 70 years, and that experience shows in the premium $250 Touch gloves.
Stylmartin Rocket Boots Stylmartin was one of the first companies to offer stylish riding footwear with modern levels of protection. And they’ve completely knocked it out the park with the new Rocket.
