AscotLRNew to the Weise® collection, the Ascot ladies textile jacket has the style of high street fashion, with the features and protection needed for riding the high road.

Aim for the Horizon with Buffalo

Buffalo horizon Jkt 3LRNew from Buffalo, the Horizon is a feature-packed, four-season textile jacket that is adaptable to a variety of weather conditions.

The tough 600-denier outer shell is reinforced with leather panels over the shoulders and CE-approved armour is fitted at the shoulders and elbows.

Inside is a windproof, waterproof and breathable drop liner, which can be removed in warm & dry conditions to allow greater air flow.

A removable thermal quilted liner helps to insulate on colder days, and an adjustable waist belt and Velcro® straps on the arms allow the wearer to achieve a draught-free fit. There is also a trouser-connection zip, to prevent the Horizon ‘riding up’ and allowing cold air in.

When the temperature rises, vents at the chest and back allow cool air in and let hot air escape. These can be used independently, or together, to give the best combination for the conditions and handy 2-way zips on the cuffs can be opened for additional ventilation.

Stretch panels on the arms and sides of the jacket aid flexibility and freedom of movement., keeping riders comfortable, even on long days in the saddle.

Topping off the extensive specification are zipped pockets, both inside and out, as well as a handy large rear map pocket – plenty of places to store all those travel essentials that need to be kept close to hand.

The Buffalo Horizon comes in sizes S – 5XL, in black with red and white highlights.

Draggin go back to black

TOGETHER.jpg564165802896cDraggin’s slim-fit Twista riding jeans are now available in black, in sizes to fit both men and women.

Twista jeans have a seamless design – with no visible panels or external stitching from the protection inside – which gives the appearance of regular fashion jeans. Now in black, they offer sleek versatility and smarter appearance than traditional blue jeans.

Made from stretch denim, for comfort and freedom of movement on and off the bike, the mid-rise waist is tailored for rider coverage in the saddle and the straight leg is designed to fit over riding boots.

On the inside, Draggin’s unique protective lining is secured with heavy-duty triple stitching in key impact areas. Knitted from a combination of DuPontâ„¢ Kevlar® and Dyneema® – the world’s strongest fibre – it is highly abrasion resistant, whilst being soft, breathable and non-allergenic.

Draggin is the first manufacturer of motorcycle jeans in the world to be officially licensed to use DuPontâ„¢ Kevlar® aramid fibres. Originally developed by DuPontâ„¢ in 1965, Kevlar® aramid fibre is lightweight and extraordinarily strong, with five times the strength of steel on an equal-weight basis.

For added impact protection, Draggin Dffuse CE protectors can be fitted into internal pockets on the knees, and are included free with every pair.

Exclusively distributed in the UK by The Key Collection, Draggin Twista jeans are available in men’s waist size 28 to 44 inches and women’s sizes 8-18.

Legendary protection from Weise gloves

Weise® have added two gloves to their range, both of which are CE-approved.

Named after the legendary Roman twins, Romulus and Remus join the handful of riding gloves that have passed the stringent testing for EN13594:2014 – ’œProtective gloves for motorcycle riders’.

Gloves are tested for abrasion-resistance, restraint (to assess the likelihood of the glove coming off the rider’s hand during an accident) and integrity (measuring the strength of seams or joints). Dexterity is also appraised, to ensure that the rider can still operate controls easily while wearing them, and there is even a durability test.

In addition, both Romulus and Remus pass the optional impact protection test for knuckle armour, as denoted by KP on the label.

weise romulus CE glv 1LRDesigned with the touring rider in mind, Romulus are made from tough, yet supple, full-grain leather, and are unlined to maximise feel and feedback through the handlebars.- Twin leather overlay on the palms provides extra abrasion protection and, to guard against impact, there is carbon shell armour on the fingers, thumbs and knuckles.- Both the cuffs and wrist are secured with Velcro for a snug fit and to help keep the gloves firmly in place in the event of a slide.- Romulus come in black, sizes S-3XL.

weise remus CE glove 1LRThe short-cuff Remus are as equally at home on a sports or naked bike as they are on a retro, cruiser or scooter.- Like the Romulus, they’re full grain leather, which is perforated on the back of the hand and thumb to let in the cool air and allow heat and perspiration to escape.- The short cuff also fits comfortably under the wrist-fastenings of most riding jackets.- TPU reinforcements to knuckles, fingers and thumb, plus a twin leather overlay on the palm, provide all-round protection for the hand and peace of mind for the rider.- The Velcro-retained strap to the cuff makes sure the protection stays where it’s needed.- Weise Remus also come in black, sizes S-3XL.

Draggin Jeans in DuPontâ„¢ top 50

Draggin Jeans have been recognised as one of the top 50 products in the world to use Kevlar®, as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the fibre’s inventors, DuPontâ„¢.KEVLAR DARE BIGGER-LR

Draggin is the only motorcycle clothing brand to be credited in the ’50 Years Strong’ campaign – a year long celebration of the DuPontâ„¢ brand, during which the company listed 50 of the most innovative and successful brands and products to use its Kevlar® fibres. DuPontâ„¢ cited the effectiveness and innovative use of the Kevlar® in the Draggin design as one of the reasons Draggin was selected for the top 50 accolade:

“The science behind the jeans is all in the lining’¦What that means, is that when the rider is sliding, during an off, the knit of the fabric acts to dissipate the heat away from the body. It slows you down so that you don’t get as much friction and thus minimises injury.

’œIt’s that lining that represents a revolution in fiber technology. With DuPontâ„¢ Kevlar® forming its core, the lining is soft, breathable, flexible and non-allergenic.”- They also recognised Draggin founder Grant Mackintosh’s devotion to testing his creation:

’œThere are not many companies that can say the boss literally ’˜put his butt’ on the line to prove his product’s safety, but Draggin Jeans can.

’œFounder of the iconic motorbike apparel Draggin, Grant Mackintosh tested the limits when he snuck off to the racetrack to literally, be dragged along the asphalt wearing a pair of his jeans, but in doing so he put his money where his mouth was, and proved to the world of motorcycling, that Draggin Jeans were everything he declared them to be.’

Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armour, Kevlar® was invented by DuPont after scientist Stephanie Kwolek made her discovery of the first liquid crystal polymer in 1965.
Lightweight, extraordinarily strong and flame resistant, it is used in numerous applications, from fire-fighting and industrial protective clothing, to vehicles, fibre-optic cables and tyres, as well as sporting apparel and equipment. In 2014, Draggin Jeans became the world’s first manufacturer of motorcycle jeans to be officially licensed to use DuPontâ„¢ Kevlar® aramid fibres. Each pair of Draggin Jeans features a protective lining, knitted using a combination of DuPont Kevlar® and Dyneema® – the World’s Strongest Fibreâ„¢ – and secured with heavy duty triple stitching in key impact areas, to help keep the wearer protected during a slide or fall. Soft, breathable, flexible and non-allergenic, the lining in Draggin Jeans offers superior protection to basic woven or knitted Kevlar® alternatives, surviving EU abrasion testing in key contact areas for 4.4 seconds. This is more than twice the duration of most other denim biker jeans with ‘protective’ aramid linings.

As part of the official partnership, Draggin continues to work directly with DuPontâ„¢ to help develop the most effective ways to use aramid fibre in motorcycle jeans – the only manufacturer to do this.- See the full Draggin Jeans here.
