DXR Dean £199.99

There once was a time when bik­ing jack­ets were strictly for rid­ing only, now su­per­fash­ion­able styles like this DXR Dean means you can dou­ble your wear time by be­ing more than ac­cept­able to wear as an ev­ery­day coat too. Avail­able in black or brown, the Dean is clas­si­cally styled with a mod­ern twist. The outer is made from soft but hard­wear­ing cowhide, while in­side there’s a re­mov­able ther­mal lin­ing, CE Level-1 ar­mour at the shoul­ders and el­bows, as well as a fixed mesh liner for sum­mer com­fort. Sizes 38-52 www.mc­n­shop.com

Fancy a bit of lux­ury for not-a-lot-of cash? The Retro Mo­tors jacket is made from soft-but-tough goatskin leather and lined with a, frankly gor­geous, quilted silk-style lin­ing. The Retro also fea­tures sewn on badges for ex­tra char­ac­ter. There are also pock­ets for el­bow, shoul­der and back pro­tec­tors, but sadly th­ese cost ex­tra.

Sizes 40-46 www.mc­n­shop.com

Th­ese pack safety, style and com­fort on a bud­get. Made from Lor­ica – a syn­thetic leather – and backed up with an an­tibac­te­rial breath­able mem­brane, the G-evo­lu­tion fea­tures in­ter­nal ar­mour at the shin, an­kle and sole to help keep your feet safe in a crash. Sizes 42-48 www.gaerne.com

The price of th­ese boots should stop you in your tracks – £119.99 for highly pro­tec­tive, race-style footwear that claim to keep your feet dry as well – sounds too good to be true. For­tu­nately th­ese Richa live up to their prom­ises, pro­vid­ing pro­tec­tion at the shin, an­kles and heels as well as abra­sion re­sis­tance from the full cowhide up­per. Stretch panels at the in­step pro­vide ex­tra com­fort and flex­i­bil­ity for when you’re fly­ing around on track or en­joy­ing a spir­ited ride on the road. Sizes 39-48 www.ne­vis.uk.com

A snug coller and tucked-away zip are nice touches Sub­tle brand­ing keeps this jacket mean and lean
