The guys at Bull-It have released a brand new jacket to kick off their new range for 2014. Known for their CE approved motorbike jeans (the only jeans to meet and exceed the stringent abrasion tests) the brand have released their Roadster jacket with the same tough material inside.
It’s a material called ‘Covec Laser 4’ – sounds hi-tech doesn’t it? That’s cos it is. It has zero water retention, high resistance to cutting, bursting and abrasion damage and low thermal conductivity (so you won’t get burnt skin due to friction when you slide down the road). The polymers in the material are the same as used on the Mars space mission and have even been tested by NASA!
The new jacket design is a hoody style, so it can be worn easily when your not riding too. As well as the space material protecting you, there is CE approved armour in the shoulders and elbows, as well as a foam back protector. It also has all the standard features bike jackets need like zip up pockets and belt loops at the back to attach to jeans.
One of these nifty Roadsters will cost you £179.99. For more info check out www.bull-it.com
