Strike it Lucky with Duchinni

Made from 1.2-1.4 mm cowhide, the Duchinni Strike is a traditional leather jacket that looks equally at home on modern street bikes and classic motorcycles.

Traditional looking bronze colour YKK zippers and popper fastenings give the Strike an ageless appearance, although it is fitted with modern CE-approved armour at shoulder and elbow, with a pocket for an optional CE-approved back protector, and rated AA for protection under the latest standards.

Other practical features for today’s riders include perforated chest panels, that allow a cooling airflow when the going gets hot, and a 120-gram thermal quilted vest, for cooler conditions.

An adjustable belt system at the waist allows a snug fit, Neoprene® trim on the collar enhances comfort and pockets are provided inside and out.

There is even a short connection zip on a stretch panel for easy attachment to Duchinni riding jeans.

The Duchinni Strike is available in sizes 40”-50” chest, in a choice of Black or Brown, selling at £229.99 including VAT.

Be prepared with a Weise Scout Jacket

Prepare for summer rides in the new Weise Scout Jacket, which combines classic styling and colours with the comfort of mesh airflow.

Large mesh panels at the front, rear and on each arm deliver maximum airflow, so you will feel as cool as you look.

It’s also built to take the knocks, having gained the higher AA rating for protection, with CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back armour.

Adjustment at the waist and on the sleeves reduces billowing, while stretch panels at the upper rear torso and elbows give freedom of movement on the bike.

A connection zip with its own stretch panel can be used to attach the jacket to matching Scout Mesh Jeans, or any other trousers in the Weise range.

Two external and two internal pockets provide plenty of places for essential items, and reflective elements feature throughout, giving increased visibility in low light.

The Weise® Scout Jacket retails at just £129.99 RRP including VAT, and comes in a choice of classic Black, Olive or Stone colours, in sizes S-5XL. Matching Scout Mesh Jeans, available in black, also cost £129.99 RRP including VAT.

Both are covered by a two-year warranty for complete peace of mind

Weise Apex Glove – short and sporty

Gloves that can be worn under a jacket sleeve are increasingly popular and Weise Apex gloves offer riders race specification in a short-cuff style.

Made from full-grain leather, which is double layered in the critical zone, the Apex gloves feature integrated TPU knuckle reinforcement and scaphoid protection on the palm, too.

Like top-end race gloves, there is a leather bridge between the little and ring fingers, to minimise the risk of injury caused by separation during a fall or slide.

Stretch panels on the ring and index fingers add extra flexibility, both for comfort and to aid precise operation of the front brake and clutch.

A silicone print on the palm increases grip, and the index finger and thumb are both touchscreen compatible, allowing riders to operate devices without removing their gloves.

The padded cuff has a Velcro® closure for a snug and secure fit, so it sits comfortably under riding jackets.

Weise Apex Gloves are available in classic Black or Black/White, in sizes S-3XL, and retail at just £59.99 inc VAT.

Weise Core Plus for Bigger Bikers

A game-changer for larger riders, the new Weise Core Plus is an AA-rated textile jacket tailored for plus sizes up to 5XL.

A game-changer for larger riders, the new Weise Core Plus is an AA-rated textile jacket tailored for plus sizes up to 5XL. For example, whereas a ‘regular’ Large jacket would have a 44” chest (112cm), in ‘plus’ sizing it is a much more generous fit, at 52.5” (133cm).

Big on specification as well as sizing, the Core Plus has everything expected from Weise clothing – comfort, quality, protection and practicality – designed to accommodate the fuller figure.

AA-rated for protection, it comes with CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back armour as standard, and reflective detailing, to help keep the wearer visible in low light.

Protection from the elements is taken care of by a breathable, waterproof and windproof drop liner and a removable 120-gram quilted thermal lining.

When the temperature rises the Core Pus can be adapted in an instant, with zipped vents at the chest, back and on each arm, allowing a cooling airflow.

Adjusters at the biceps and forearms reduce annoying billowing, and provide a snug fit, while three external pockets with zipper closure, and four internal pockets, offer plenty of places to carry everyday essentials.

The size range is Large (52.5” chest) to 5XL (UK 60.5” chest). Click here for prices.

Matching Core Plus Textile Trousers are available in plus sizes Medium – 5XL. Click here for prices.

New AA-rated Duchinni jacket

New from Duchinni®, the Cobra is a great-value textile jacket, packed with all the features riders need to stay warm, dry and well protected.

Built to last and take the knocks, the Cobra is AA-rated for protection, with CE-approved shoulder and elbow armour and a pocket for an optional back protector.

Protection from the elements is taken care of by a breathable, waterproof and windproof layer and the main zip features an internal storm panel, to seal out the rain.

Warmth is provided by a removable 120-gram quilted thermal liner and, when the temperature rises, front and rear zippered vents can be opened to allow a cooling airflow around the body’s core.

Two-position sleeve adjusters reduce billowing, stretch panels at the elbows allow freedom of movement and the Neoprene®-trimmed storm collar adds comfort. There are pockets inside and out, a connection zip to attach the jacket to riding trousers and reflective panels to keep the wearer visible in low light.

The Duchinni Cobra comes in sizes S-5XL and retails at just £109.99 including VAT.

An optional CE Level-1 back protector, made from flexible elasto-foam, is available for £17.99 inc VAT.

Weise Summit jacket offers peak performance

New for 2021, the Weise® Summit is a three-layer all-season jacket, delivering first-class protection, flexibility and comfort for riders with a sense of adventure.

Built to deal with whatever is thrown at it, the Summit features a modular design for instant adaptability to changing weather conditions.

  1. Beneath the outer shell sits a removable waterproof, windproof and breathable liner to keep out the rain, allow perspiration to escape and combat the effects of windchill.
  2. A softshell inner jacket, with micro-fleece lining, insulates on colder days and can be removed completely for use as a casual ‘destination’ jacket when not riding.
  3. When the temperature rises, large Fidlock™ system-secured vents at the chest – along with additional vents on the arms and back – can be opened in seconds, for a cooling airflow. Each cuff features long, two-way zipped venting which, like all the vents on the Summit, have waterproof zips, so are rain-tight when closed.

For peace of mind, the Summit is AA-rated for protection (to EN 17092 standard), with a tough Cordura®, SuperFabric and Nylon outer shell and CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back armour.-secured chest vent

Extra visibility in low light is provided by.3M™ reflective shoulder, arm and rear stripes. For a snug fit, an adjustable waist belt and four sleeve adjusters reduce billowing, while a short connection zip allows attachment to riding jeans, and helps stop the jacket ‘riding up’.

Stretch panels at the elbows and shoulders add to the all-round comfort, as does the Neoprene® trimmed storm collar, which has a handy hook system for holding it open when unfastened.

There are pockets galore, inside and out, including hand-warmer pockets, and a large rear map pocket, incorporating a smaller one with waterproof zip.

The Weise Summit is available in Black and Stone colour options, comes in sizes S-5XL and retails at £299.99 including VAT. It’s covered by a 2-year warranty.

Sort out those Winter Gremlins

A good quality, well-fitting cover is essential for bikes parked outdoors, keeping your motorcycle protected against rain, frost, snow, harmful UV rays (when the sun occasionally shines) and away from prying eyes too. The Gear Gremlin Classic Neon Cover is made from a waterproof, soft and durable polyester with elastic hems for a secure fit. Reinforced side cut-outs are provided to pass a security chain through and the neon yellow section increases visibility on dark roadsides. It comes in three sizes for the perfect fit, from £45.99 including VAT.

Don’t get caught in the cold, rain and/or dark because you haven’t got the tools to fix a simple problem. Compact enough to stash under a seat, or even in a pocket, the Gear Gremlin Tool Kit contains everything needed for emergency roadside repairs – only £14.99.

Supreme Winter Warmers from Weise

With Hipora® waterproofing and a Thinsulate® Supreme lining, Weise Montana 150 gloves give maximum weather protection with minimal bulk – perfect for tackling tricky winter conditions

Feel and feedback from the controls is crucial during colder and wetter weather, so the Montana ditches the heavy, bulky winter glove liners of old and instead features a 150-gram Thinsulate® Supreme lining. As the name suggests, it keeps the hands warm, yet is thin and flexible, with a soft, silky feel for day-long comfort.

The lining is held in place with the McFIT® system, so there’s no uncomfortable stitching or seams and the liners stay firmly in place, without the frustration of twisting or pulling free.

Stretch panels on each finger and the back of the hand offer freedom of movement and the palm features a Chamude® overlay panel, complete with silicon print, for improved grip on wet handlebars.

Tough and durable full grain leather on the palm, an integrated visor wipe on the left index finger and 3M® Scotchlite® piping for added visibility in the long dark evenings, cover every eventuality.

Weise® Montana 150 gloves come in sizes S-3XL and retail at £99.99 including VAT.

An anti-scratch, double curvature visor – with tool-free release – gives a clear view of the road ahead and wide peripheral vision. Behind that sits a drop-down internal sun-visor, which is easily operated with a gloved hand.
