Fresh into the Motolegends warehouse this week is the new delivery from Halvarssons. Our top pick for 2013 is the brand new Mech cargo pants, which we just love. The Mech pant is a heavy duty cotton twill jean that has HI-ART in all the most vunerable areas.
For extra safety, you can fit CE approved armour into the knee and hip areas. We do them in grey camo, sand camo, and black. They’re our new favouritet biking jean.
Another new item to come out of Halvarssons for 2013 is the Torso shirt. Jackets like this are great in so many situations. Basically, it’s a tight fitting Spandex jacket that comes pre-fitted with soft, CE approived armour in the shoulders, elbows and across the chest. A back protector can also be added. To keep you cool, the shirt has mesh panels; very useful when the going gets tough. Wear one under a jacket that has no protection, or under a MX shirt when you go off-road. We think everybody should have one.
In terms of ‘hardwear’, the Prime jacket is top of our list. The Prime is a new all-season jacket that you can wear on just about any kind of bike. To keep the rider dry, it has a Dryway Plus membrane, but the outer fabric is also treated with a waterproof coating called PolyTex. For warmth and temperature regulation, there’s also a removable Outlast liner. For protection, the vulnerable areas are reinforced with HI-ART. Of course, there’s CE armour in the sleeves and shoulders, and you get a pocket for a back protector. Most of the other stuff is standard Halvarssons. Air vents, loads of fit adjusters, reflectors, and a system for attaching the jacket to the company’s pants. A neat touch, though, is the removable hi-viz vest that you can zip in to the chest area.
The perfect companion to the Prime jacket are the Prince pants. If you’re looking for a textile motorcycle trouser that goes with everything and which you can wear all year round, the Prince may just fit the bill. For waterproofing there’s a fixed DRYWAY PLUS membrane. But for added security, the fabric also has a waterproof coating. Temperature is looked after with a removable OUTLAST liner. Air vents throughout also help keep you cool when it gets too warm. HI-ART in key areas increases abrasion resistance, and you get CE armour in the knees and hips. You can attach the trousers to any Halvarssons jacket, but they also come with braces if you prefer. The leg width is adjustable and the seat pant is leather to prevent you from slipping in the seat.
