Motorcycle Jacket Alpinestars RX-5 Drystar Black/Black - Product parameters
With most moto clothing, ventilation is provided via permeable and breathable material. Ventilation ensures sweat release and allows the skin to breathe better. That's why ventilated clothing is more pleasant to wear.
Detachable layer can be found in a large number of motorcycle jackets. This type of a jacket is suitable for both winter and summer because the layer can be easily detached from the jacket. The layer is usually insulated and as such provides warmth and comfort, even in colder weather. Its advantage is that it is easily washable.
Quality protectors over the right places prevent injuries during falls. All protectors have been tested to meet the corresponding CE standards. CE certification is given to products that meet required standards for a selected type of product.
Reflective features exponentially increase the user's visibility. They are suitable especially for winter months that come with mists and early sunset. However, they shouldn't be forgotten even during summer.
Reflective features on clothing items usually take the form of a reflective lettering or stripes that don't clash with regular wear.
Jacket and trousers are secured together by special zippers along the trousers' circumference. Together they make up a comfortable jumpsuit. The complete ensemble provides better protection and prevents wind or water from getting in. For this connection to work, you need trousers with the same type of zipper, preferably of the same brand and model. If you are not sure your chosen trousers and jacket fit together, feel free to contact our customer support.
Removable protectors are great for those who plan on using their motorcycle clothing casually as well. Without the protectors, your movement won't be limited in any way and the jacket or trousers will be lighter and more comfortable. It is also easier to wash clothes without protectors.
