FRESH NEW RIDING GEAR
THE LATEST FROM HARLEY-DAVIDSON AND SPEED AND STRENGTH
Quality duds that keep your bits protected are paramount here at Hot Bike. We found some fresh new gear from Harley-davidson and Speed and Strength that will keep you protected and, more importantly, keep your street cred intact.
Harley-davidson’s Vintage Stripe B06 full-face helmet ($395) is a DOT lid made with a fiberglass shell, and features a double D-ring chin strap. The helmet has race-inspired stripes in traditional H-D colors, and features a magnetic Uv-protected, antiscratch shield closure and contoured cheek pads with built-in speaker pockets for a comfortable fit (maybe a good fit for Cardo’s new Bold Bluetooth communicator, page 24). Five metal mesh intake vents and one rear vent are integrated for ventilation, giving the helmet a streamlined look and maximum airflow delivery to keep you cool this summer.
The Speed and Strength Dark Horse jacket ($349.95) features simplistic styling, but it’s made with high-quality materials. The Dark Horse’s premium leather frame comes fully equipped with removable Vault Ce-approved shoulder, elbow, and spine protectors should you go skidding down the road. For those who never leave home without it, the Dark Horse also includes an Armed Response concealed-carry pocket, and for breathability, perforated underarm panels ensure optimal airflow on warm-weather rides.
In keeping with uniformity, check out Speed and Strength’s Dark Horse leather motorcycle boots ($159.95). Built with a combined premium leather and synthetic upper, the Dark Horse boots feature molded internal toe, heel, and ankle reinforcements with anti-slip rubber outsole for a solid grip.
