Set Your Sights on the Weise Sniper

AA-rated retro-style textile riding jacket.

Inspired by biker jackets of the Sixties, the new Weise Sniper looks every inch a classic, yet has a modern 600D fabric shell and is AA-rated to the latest EN17092-3:2020 safety standard.

It comes with CE Level 2 shoulder and elbow armour and a Level 1 back protector fitted as standard, all of which can be removed. For added safety, there’s a short trouser connection zip, with a comfort stretch panel.

Beneath the shell is a fixed waterproof, windproof and breathable membrane, and the main entry zip is covered by a storm flap, secured with metal poppers for extra weather protection. There’s also a removable 75 gsm quilted liner with full length sleeves, in a classic check design, which adds to the retro style.

Adjustment at the waist and at the collar allows for fine tuning of the fit, while the collar is Neoprene® trimmed for extra comfort and to seal out wind chill.

Speaking of which, two cosy hand-warmer pockets offer welcome relief for chilly fingers when off the bike. There’s also a Napoleon pocket and two internal pockets for valuables, plus two more on the chest with popper closure.

The Sniper retails at £179.99 including VAT and comes in sizes: S – 5XL in choice of two classic colours, Black and Olive.

Weise Rennen Sport Touring Gloves

Full grain leather, KP-1 rated riding gloves with comfort and practicality for the road.

New for 2024, Weise Rennen gloves offer the best of both worlds: sport styling and construction, with a big handful of the comfort and practicality needed for the road.

Featuring a full grain leather shell, Rennen gloves are supple and flexible for comfort, allowing feedback from the controls. Highly abrasion resistant, they are double-stitched and dual-layered in critical zones.

For extra peace of mind, 1-KP rated TPU armour covers the knuckles, plus additional TPU protectors at the scaphoid, fingers and on the cuff. Padded palm, wrist, finger and thumb panels add to the sense of security.

Vents in each finger protector and perforations in the leather shell keep the hands cool and comfortable when the going gets hot. There are also accordion stretch panels at the joints to help with delicate use of the controls, and a micro-suede overlay on the palm for grip.

Both wrist and cuff are secured with an adjustable hook-and-loop fastener for a snug, comfortable fit. Weise designed the cuff section to be low profile and clutter-free, so it can be worn under the sleeves of riding jackets if preferred.

There’s no need to remove the gloves to operate smartphone or satnav, since both the index fingers and thumbs are touchscreen compatible.
Weise Rennen Gloves come in sizes S-3XL, in a choice of classic black or black with contrasting white panels, and retail at £159.99 a pair, including VAT. Find them at www.weiseclothing.com

Updated Weise summer gloves are the new Wave

Weise Wave 2.0 waterproof glove now with 1-KP rated knuckle protection

Weise have given their popular waterproof summer gloves a host of upgrades for 2024, making them even more practical for riding in warm but changeable weather conditions. The addition of 1-KP knuckle armour on the Wave 2.0 adds to their appeal for adventure riding, while their flexibility and waterproofing will make them a popular choice with commuters and leisure riders too.

Comfort and control

Key to the Wave’s comfort is the synthetic suede and Spandex textile construction. It’s tough, yet lightweight and flexible, giving freedom of movement, and allowing plenty of feel and feedback from the controls. Silicone printing on the palm increases grip on the bike’s bars and levers; just as important on a busy ring road as it is on rocky mountain passes.

mcTex™ and mcFit™ Technology

A dependable mcTex™ waterproof and breathable membrane keeps hands dry and free from the effects of windchill. The warm Tri fleece lining is secured with mcFit™ technology, so there’s no uncomfortable stitching or seams, and it won’t twist or pull free when you take off your glove.

1-KP Protection

Protection is taken care of by 1-KP rated TPU knuckle armour. There are additional padded palm panels and the tough suede shell is dual-layered and triple-stitched at critical zones.

Touchscreen compatible

The short cuff design sits easily under riding jackets, with hook and loop closure for a snug and secure fit. There’s no need to remove the gloves to operate smartphones or sat navs either, since both the index fingers and thumbs are touchscreen compatible.

Weise Wave 2.0 gloves retail at £99.99 a pair, including VAT. They come in a choice of Black or Grey, in sizes S-2XL, and are covered by a two-year warranty for complete peace of mind.

Duchinni Grid Youth Jacket for Young Riders

Rated AA for protection, this stylish waterproof jacket is designed exclusively for junior riders.

Stylish, comfy, weatherproof – and made to the same high safety standards as adult motorcycle clothing – the Duchinni Youth Grid Textile Jacket puts younger motorcycle passengers in pole position.

There’s no minimum legal age for children to ride as pillions in the UK, although they must meet certain safety requirements. They need to wear a properly fitting helmet, be able to sit securely on the motorcycle seat with their feet on the footrests and hold on firmly.

Responsible parents will also want them to wear quality protective gear and Duchinni has responded to this with a range of clothing and boots designed exclusively for 6-15 year olds.

AA-rated for peace of mind

Made to the same exacting standards as adult motorcycle clothing, the Grid is tested and approved to the AA rating for safety.

The outer shell is a tough and durable 600D fabric, and it comes with CE Level 2 shoulder and elbow armour and a Level 1 back-protector as standard.

Grows with the wearer

A welcome feature for budget-conscious parents, the Grid has zipped 3cm sleeve extension panels, as well as adjustment at the waist and cuffs, to accommodate growth spurts.

Weatherproofing built-in

Speaking of comfort, there’s a 75gsm quilted thermal liner and the fleece-lined and Neoprene® trimmed collar adds an extra element of luxury. A waterproof and breathable membrane keeps rain out but still allows the body to breathe naturally.

Retailing for £99.99, the Duchinni Youth Grid comes in children’s sizes XS-XL, in a choice of Black/Gun, Back/Neon Yellow and Black/Red. All colour options come with reflective detailing for added safety and removable embroidered logo/flag badges, so the wearer can customise their look. Find further information at duchinni.com

New Weise Axel Softshell Jacket

Softshell urban riding jacket blends comfort, style, and CE-certified protection.

Created for commuting and urban rides, the new Weise Axel mixes softshell comfort and casual street style with CE-certified impact and abrasion protection, and full weatherproofing too.

Softshell comfort and CE-protection

The Axel’s tough and stretchy 600D softshell outer brings the best of both worlds: A-rated protection plus flexibility, freedom of movement and comfort on and off the bike.

CE Level 2-approved shoulder and elbow armour and a Level-1 back protector come fitted as standard. All five pieces are removable, so the Axel can be washed.

There’s also a connection zip, with a comfort stretch panel for attachment to riding trousers, which helps stop the jacket riding up, keeping the wearer well covered.

Weatherproofing on and off the bike

A fixed waterproof, windproof and breathable lining keeps out wind and rain, while allowing perspiration to escape. The high-quality YKK main entry zip is covered by a full-length storm flap. Warmth is provided by a snug 75gsm quilted thermal lining.

A detachable hood – with fleece lining – keeps the head warm and dry when off the bike. It adjusts with a drawstring and secures to the back of the Axel with a popper, so it won’t flap around whilst riding. It can also be zipped off completely, should the wearer prefer.

Practical features

An elasticated waist and cuffs keep out cold draughts and mean there’s no fiddling with adjusters, poppers, or straps to get a snug fit.

Two zipped hand-warmer pockets offer welcome relief for chilly fingers. There’s also a Napoleon pocket and two internal pockets – one designed for a smartphone – for the daily essentials.

Reflective detailing keeps the wearer visible in low light but is subtle enough, so it won’t stand out on the street or in the coffee shop.

The Weise Axel Jacket comes in sizes S-5XL in cool Blue or Green shades, and retails at £179.99 including VAT.

Like all Weise clothing, it’s covered by a two-year warranty for complete peace of mind. Find it on the Weise Clothing website at www.weiseclothing.com

Updated Weise Outlast® Winter Gloves

Weise Outlast® Sirius 2.0 Gloves now with KP1 knuckle protection

Beat winter hands-down with new and improved Weise Outlast® Sirius 2.0 Gloves, which now feature KP1 rated knuckle protection and space-age temperature regulation, for the ultimate in cold weather comfort.

CE I-KP Certified Protection

Made with a full grain leather and textile shell, Outlast® Sirius 2.0 Gloves have KP-1 rated knuckle protection and also come with a practical visor wipe and touchscreen compatibility.

Outlast® Climate Control

Inside, the Outlast® lining provides built-in climate control. This space-age material, originally developed for NASA, absorbs, stores and releases heat to actively regulate the body’s microclimate.

As the wearer’s hands warm up, the Outlast® lining absorbs the heat, keeping them cool and reducing the risk of perspiration. If the temperature drops, the heat is released to keep the hands warm.

This active control helps to reduce the heat-up/chill down cycle often experienced when riding in varying temperatures and conditions, keeping the wearer consistently comfortable.

mcTex™ and 3M™ Thinsulate

A mcTex™ waterproof and breathable membrane keeps out wind and rain, while allowing any perspiration to escape.

Additional insulation is provided by 3M™ Thinsulate G100 to the back of hand, and C40 at the palm.

mcFit™ Technology

The linings, membrane and outer shell are held firmly in place with the proven mcFit™ system, so there’s no uncomfortable stitching or seams and the liners won’t twist or pull free.

Weise Outlast® Sirius 2.0 come in men’s sizes S – 4XL and women’s XS – XL. Like all Weise clothing, they’re covered by a two-year warranty.

Beneath the outer shell is a waterproof, windproof and breathable membrane, with a 200gsm Thinsulate™ liner over the back of the hand, and 100gsm Thinsulate™ on the palm. A soft fleece inner lining provides a luxurious feel from the moment you put them on.

When the temperature drops, press the single button controller on the back of the wrist for instant warmth across the back of the hand and fingers. There are three heat settings to choose from and the rechargeable 2200 mAh batteries in each cuff provide several hours of heat. They can be easily removed and topped up, using the supplied USB charging cable.

A two-layer storm cuff forms a tight seal around sleeves, preventing water running down arms into the gloves, and touchscreen compatibility means there’s no need to remove the gloves to operate satnav, etc.
