New Keis J601RP UltraFlex Heated Jacket For Winter Riding

There are some potential benefits to riding through cold weather, but it’s important to stay warm for your safety as well as comfort. It’s hard to concentrate when you’re shivering, so even if you’re using an old winter hack for commuting, something like the new Keis J601RP UltraFlex heated jacket can be a worthwile investment.

The UltraFlex material has been developed by Keis from 85% Chinlon and 15% Spandex to create a mid-layer which is flexible, comfortable, and not too bulky. And as a bonus, Chinlon also wicks away moisture, which is handy. Plus it’s soft, and combined with the stretchy Spandex, you get a snug fit to make the most of the heating without hampering your movement on the bike, or any uncomfortable rubbing and chafing.

The New Oxford Holton MS Leather Jacket

Apparently the new Oxford Holton MS leather jacket is part of a range celebrating 50 years since the company started. And it seems like a fairly stylish celebration, with a subtle and classic design.

Made from full grain bovine leather, it’s got a worn-in look with soft edging on the collar, and an Oxford 50 years heritage leather patch along with a heat embossed logo. And you can choose from black with white stipes on the arms, or brown with black stripes.

Belt attachment loops allow you to fasten the Holton jacket to jeans and prevent it from rising up when you’re riding, and alongside the reinforced safety seams are hidden stiching to keep the protection in place, along with an elbow seem to make those protectors more comfortable.

The new Oxford Holton MS Leather Jacket is available in Black or Brown in sizes S-3XL, and costs £279.99. Also in the Holton range are matching Black or Brown leather motorcycle gloves from £39.99, which are Level 1 KP certified with a leather palm and hidden PU knuckle protectors, and a waterproof version in Black only for £49.99.

Ducati Scrambler Apparel Collection Arrives At Dealers

It’s one of the most popular bike models produced by the Italian manufacturer, so sales will probably be good as the new Ducati Scrambler apparel collection arrives at dealers.

Not being a fashionista, I’m not entirely sure what a Milestone capsule collection might be, but I do recognise the Spidi-produced SCR62 Milestone fabric jacket in male and female versions looks alright, with a three-layer softshell fabric exterior, a windproof and breathable membrane and micro-fleece inner lining.

And there’s also the Milestone helmet, created by Ducati Centro Stile on an Arai base. There’s a choice of XS-XXL with three outer shell sizes in PB-clc2 fibre (Arai’s Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction), with an EPS inner shell, and a visor featuring a variable access system for a wide field of vision at any lean angle.

You can also get a load of Scrambler t-shirts, hoodies, bags and more, should you want to represent the brand wherever you go. It’s not only good to check out the range at your local Ducati dealer, but it’ll probably be quicker and easier than trying to navigate the website

Lighter New LS2 Vector II Carbon Helmet Released

The new, and light, LS2 Vector II Carbon helmet has just become available to buy in 2023, and with prices starting from £259.99 it’s an affordable way to enjoy modern safety and aerodynamics.

Using 100% high-grade wide weave carbon fibre, you get a weight of around 1350g, compared to approximately 1500g for the fibreglass composite Vector II range launched in 2022. And it’s actually £10 cheaper than the carbon version from the original Vector line-up, which is quite surprising.

Certified to the latest ECE 22.06 safety standards, it’s designed for stability at speed, which should reduce neck ache combined with the light weight . And the long-oval shell is manufactured in six sizes, to help reduce unnecessary drag and give you the best fit.

New Weise Earhart Women’s Leather Motorcycle Jacket

If you’re honouring one of the most famous pilots in history, then the new Weise Earhart women’s leather motorcycle jacket has plenty to live up to.

You’ll have to decide for yourself if the design looks good enough for the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic, with the soft and supple waxed finish. But the 1.1-1.3mm natural cowhide, quilted shoulder and back details and YKK vintage-style zips do come together pretty well, delivering a stylish and timeless leather jacket.

But there are lots of aviation connections with various female motorcyclists, including the Van Buren sisters, who road across America in the 1910s, with the younger Augusta becoming a pilot and joining Earhart’s Ninety-Nines flying organisation, and that group also helped to inspire the Motor Maids, one of the oldest women’s motorcycle clubs in America.
