New range-topping Duchinni helmet

Duchinni’s top-end helmet for 2020, the new D1300, has an advanced fiberglass shell and premium-level features, for a very accessible price.

The outer shell is made from advanced fiberglass, with aerodynamic sculpting for cleaner airflow, reduced head movement and noise. Combined with the low weight, at just 1480g, the D1300 is comfortable to wear on long-distance trips and high speed blasts.

Airflow inside the helmet is maximised, with vents that feed a cooling breeze through advanced channelling in the EPS liner to exhausts at the rear.

There’s also a high quality textile lining, which is removable and washable, for season-long freshness and comfort.

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.

A breath deflector and chin curtain come as standard and the D1300 is held securely in place with an adjustable micrometric buckle.

The Duchinni D1300 comes in sizes XS-XL in black. See prices HERE

Duchinni Sierra Adventure Sport Boots

New from Duchinni, Sierra boots combine the features and protection of adventure sport footwear, with the comfort and convenience of a calf-length fit.

Tested and certified to EN13634 – the CE standard for motorcycle use – they’re made from tough and durable full grain leather, reinforced at the shin, toe, heel cup and gear shifter zone.

Built to tackle anything that’s thrown at them – on the road or off it – the leather upper is oiled to protect it from mud, grime and other debris thrown up from the tarmac or trail.

Inside there’s a waterproof and breathable lining to keep the rider’s feet dry and comfortable. Flex panels at the calf, shin and ankle offer ease of movement on the bike, while embossed and reinforced panels on the inside of each ankle reduce the risk of damage from footpeg hangers and frame parts.

An oil-resistant rubber non-slip sole offers reassuring grip on the pegs and the boots are held securely in place by sturdy MX-style buckle fasteners

Duchinni Sierra Adventure Sport Boots are available in sizes 7-12 (EU 40-47), in classic Brown – the perfect addition to any adventurer’s kit cupboard.
