Spring has sprung, so I believed it could be good to share with you some new gear faves that I’ve been seeing as I’m slinging gear within the RevZilla Philly Showroom.
These aren’t in any specific order, simply random faves; some are ladies particular, some aren’t.
Leatt Twin Axis Knee Guards ($99/pair)
Searching for an excellent pair of knee guards which are stronger than your fundamental $20 knee guard however not as costly as a $300 singular knee brace? I like these as a result of they match each knee, particularly smaller legs and knees (e.g. petite ladies riders!)
In addition they work on the road should you want one thing to put on shortly over your driving denims. (or should you’re not sporting actual driving denims and wish one thing fast and straightforward).
It additionally has a twin axis design so that you get extra lateral help in your knee earlier than you soar to an precise knee brace. It’s snug, straightforward to suit and an honest worth.
Revit Eclipse Jacket ($179)
(additionally out there in Mens) It’s actually exhausting to seek out mesh jackets in colours apart from black/silver. This one additionally is available in brown and silver for girls and navy or olive should you want a males’s particular match. It’s light-weight, straightforward to put on and cozy. Remember that it’s not best for freeway particular driving because the abrasion resistance is gentle for metropolis speeds / cease indicators. A again protector pocket is there so you too can add one should you like.
Tremendous cute, proper?
Arai Regent-X Helmet ($559+)
I do know, I do know, I do know. However hear me out. When folks are available in to get fitted with me, I meet lots of people who’ve by no means, ever, ever skilled a fantastic becoming helmet. And that is the one helmet that everybody has to attempt to uncover what that ought to really feel like. In case you’ve solely ever ordered helmets on-line, otherwise you’ve solely worn cheap, no frills helmets, you owe it to your self to least attempt one.
After I purchased my first $135 HJC helmet manner again when, I additionally tried on an Arai, as a result of I knew that sometime I’d wish to get one. It solely took me a pair years after which I upgraded. I’m so glad I did, however rattling I want I might have upgraded sooner.
That is a kind of Arais. In case you’ve had horrible luck with road helmets, you’ve by no means worn a full face helmet and want to attempt one, belief me, this is without doubt one of the finest ones you’ll ever attempt on. Arai can also be my absolute favourite while you want the MOST room from ear to ear or cheek to cheek. When each helmet feels so tight throughout the face, it doesn’t matter what do to downgrade the cheekpads (which you too can do with any Arai, btw).
The one draw back, is that should you journey an aggressive sportbike, like a GSXR, R6, Daytona, this isn’t going to be the very best view angle. However should you journey one thing that’s largely upright (cruiser, bare, and so on.) it’s completely phenomenal. It’s additionally very breathable and nicely ventilated, and also you’ll discover that sitting in site visitors with an Arai is without doubt one of the most cheap experiences given how sizzling it is likely to be exterior your helmet. Sitting within the warmth is not any enjoyable, however while you put on an Arai it’s considerably tolerable.
The match profile is Intermediate oval, with extra room from ear to ear and jaw to jaw. You probably have a really slender face or excessive cheekbones, you’ll have so as to add thicker cheekpads to make these work, otherwise you’ll want a tighter becoming helmet in the identical measurement like Shoei or Bell.
Klim Marrakesh Womens Jacket ($369)
Additionally out there in Mens. That is such a novel jacket, I haven’t gotten my arms on it but within the showroom, however I’ve been in a position to match loads of males on this one and I’m excited concerning the ladies’s model. It’s a light-weight, extremely breathable, shut knit mesh cloth. It’s an all season jacket that’s best in hotter climates and has a pleasant stretchy match.
The boys’s model has matching pants, and though they don’t have a lady’s pant but, I’m hopefully they’re going to return out with one. The material could be very snug, and it has a really unassuming look to it. I additionally just like the white and tan colorways out there! I actually just like the stretch cloth and am wanting ahead to becoming loads of ladies on this jacket. It’s additionally actually exhausting to seek out lighter colours. The safety and abrasion resistance is right for freeway / touring speeds and goes to be superior as an all season jacket, though it’s not waterproof, simply waterproof.
I believe the fitment on that is going to be much like the mesh Avalon, with extra of an hourglass with a barely longer waist and sleeve. Sadly I couldn’t suggest this to you should you’re very brief waisted and are in search of shorter than common sleeve and torso lengths. I do assume this can work nicely in case you have a robust pear form or a fuller hourglass form.
So should you’re in search of that snug, throughout jacket in a light-weight coloration for heat/sizzling climate, you’re going to like this. I’m tempted to get certainly one of these this Summer season and sporting it as an alternative of the Rev’it mesh jacket that I’ve.
That’s all for now, I hope to have extra favorites for you coming quickly. As at all times you may message me on social anytime, or put up a remark right here with any questions or suggestions!
