In the panoply of biker, I would like the jacket! Along with the helmet, gloves, boots, jacket is an essential element of the rider equipment. Although its use is not mandatory, it is far from being confined to mere accessory. In short: a must!
The criteria for choose his motorcycle jacket
For beginners or bikers scooter riders, the choice of a jacket can prove to be a real headache.”Very often it is the aesthetic that prevails when buying, whereas before everything, it is necessary to ask a number of questions about the use of your jacket every day,” says Stéphane Bourger home Action Motorcycle, Honda dealership in Thionville.
“Also, the parameters to consider are the types of trips that we will make (urban, motocross, tennis …), if the use will be road or rather intended for recreation (walking, sports). It is also important to ask whether the rollings will be mainly carried out in summer or winter, “says Stéphane Bourger.
Details far from trivial as they will allow the seller to point you to more or less ventilated models, waterproof, equipped with linings (eg removable sleeves) or storage …
Leather or textile?
Long time leader in the softwareleverage.org, the old parka jacket has emerged from several years of competitors of all kinds designed synthetic textile. The low cost of nylon over leather was determinative.
Thus, thanks to technical developments, manufacturers were able to associate tight fibers (Gore-Tex, Reissa, Hipora, Sympatex), others that help wick away perspiration (Tactel, 3XDry, Coolmax) and finally liners who bring a little warmth (Polartec, Polarguard, Primaloft, 3M Thinsulate). To protect the rider, the base was replaced by Nylon Cordura, denser and far stronger.
Weathertight and comfortable, textile jackets are now very resistant to shock, all for an excellent price / quality ratio. In addition, they require no special maintenance. Leather, less waterproof, remains unmatched in terms of resistance (and therefore safety!) In case of contact with the ground or, in case of abrasion. The only flaws: its still high cost and maintenance, which is rather restrictive.
Do not hesitate to pay the price
“A motorcycle jacket is a second skin,” says Stéphane Bourger, “even if the budget will determine 80% of purchase, so do not skimp on ways to find the best security / price ratio. To mark a cloth jacket, it takes 100-120 € in the entry (400 € in very high quality). The leather price starts him to 300 € ‘.
Today, all jackets and jackets are fitted with removable covers (semi-rigid shells) on the elbows and shoulders that meet CE (European Community). Depending on the model, you can find additional reinforcements as the famous ridge, absorbs shock on the spine.
For tighter budgets, manufacturers also offer scalable versions jackets. Designed intermediate quality, they have specific pockets where you can add additional protections. A smart way to spread its expenses over time! The price difference for scalable models called amounts to over a hundred euros less than the full models, this both for leather and textiles.
For added security and comfort, consider trying your sitting position jacket. It should be adjusted close to the body and tight waist and the extremities (neck, wrists) to get a weaker taken to the air and protect against the cold.
