CE-approved armour is fitted at shoulder, elbow and back, with TPU reinforcement cups covering the shoulders, an aerodynamic race hump at the back and stretch panels on shoulders and arms for added flexibility.
Practical features for everyday riding on the road include a removable 120-gram thermal quilted vest, two external pockets with zipper closure, as well as internal pockets and a connection zip, for attachment to Weise trousers.

Inspired by Isle of Man TT record holder and Weise®-supported racer Peter Hickman, the new-for-2019 Ascari combines the close fit, styling and features of a racing jacket, with the comfort and versatility of a road-going textile.
Designed with sport and street bike riders in mind, the Ascari is tailored for a close fit and features Velcro® retained sleeve adjusters to reduce billowing, plus an aerodynamic ‘race hump’ to smooth out airflow over the head and neck.
Built to last, it has a tough 600 denier fabric outer shell, with TPU shoulder reinforcement cups on the outside, and CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back armour on the inside. A trouser connection zip – with comfort stretch fabric – prevents the jacket ‘riding up’ whilst in a sporty riding position.

New for 2019, Weise® Vision rainwear protects riders from the elements and uses high-tech materials to massively increase visibility – a quick and cost-effective way to improve comfort and safety during challenging wet weather rides.
The jacket and matching trousers are made from waterproof fabric, with taped and welded seams, keeping you dry and warm, and enabling your focus to remain on the road – crucial in tricky weather conditions.
What makes the Vision stand out – literally – is the outer fabric, which has a 360-degree reflective coating. In normal daytime conditions it has a silvery appearance; when caught in a vehicle’s headlights, the silvery surface shines brightly, helping riders to be seen out on murky days and dark nights.
With a full mesh lining, Vision clothing is easy to slip on and off over your regular riding gear, to suit the conditions.
Weise also produce a Gilet using the same 360-degree reflective technology. This is fastened with a reliable YKK main zip and has an adjustable waist, with Velcro® retained belt to prevent flapping and billowing at higher speeds. Once again, the mesh lining enables you to slip it over motorcycle clothing with ease.

Bike thieves attempting to steal a scooter in Hull were foiled thanks to a KOVIX alarmed chain lock, which resisted attacks from three different heavy duty cutting tools.
Starting with a blow torch, the thieves tried to breach the cast steel lock casing. When that failed, they took an angle grinder to one of the 10mm chain links, without success. Finally they resorted to bolt-croppers, but these merely dented the chain link, without making a serious impression.
Incredibly the 120db alarm still worked after the onslaught and the owner was so impressed that he returned to the shop where he purchased the lock to buy a replacement.
The Metropolitan Police advise riders to use two or more security devices to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of bike theft and, by combining a deafening alarm siren with a high specification lock & chain, the KOVIX KCL10-150 is a formidable double-act.
Its 1.5M long hexagonal chain has 10 mm diameter hardened steel links, which are highly resistant to cutting and sawing, and the lock mechanism has a stainless steel case and key barrel, with a hardened steel lock pin, so it is equally tough and durable. The 120db alarm has shock and movement sensors and is powered by a long-life lithium battery.
KOVIX design and manufacture a wide range of intelligent security products in their own factory, giving them total control over specification and quality.

Removable Knox® MICRO-LOCK CE-approved armour features at the shoulders, elbows and back. This is soft to the touch and flexible, but locks when impacted, increasing the amount of energy absorbed by the protector.
Velcro® adjusters at the waist and base of the Onyx, plus popper adjustments to the upper and lower arms and upper torso, reduce billowing at speed and prevent chill winds from creeping in. Stretch panels to the elbows assist in flexibility and freedom of movement.
