Travel with Weise

Weise® has added two feature-packed jackets to its 2015 range.

Atlanta:

atlanta black 3-LRBuilt to deal with the unpredictable weather encountered by touring riders and commuters alike, the Atlanta has a popper and Velcro® retained storm flap over its YKK® main zip, a waterproof, windproof and breathable drop lining and a removable thermal quilted liner too.

If things take a turn for the better, there are waterproof-zipped vents at the chest, sides, back and arms, and the collar features a loop and hook system so the wearer can secure it open while riding, or when wearing the Atlanta off the bike. Velcro® adjusters on the arms, cuffs and at the waist allow for the use of base layers, while stretch panels at the shoulders, sides and elbows aid comfort and mobility.

The Atlanta provides plenty of carrying capacity, with two external and three internal pockets, a waterproof ‘Napoleon’ pocket behind the main zip – ideal for wallet or mobile phone – and a rear pocket with side entry.

CE-approved armour is fitted at the shoulders, elbows and back as standard. The Weise® Atlanta comes in sizes S-5XL, in Black and Black/Stone, priced at £159.99 including VAT.

Zurich:

Selling for just £129.99 including VAT, the Zurich is the entry-level jacket in the Weise Weise-Zurich-LRrange, but doesn’t compromise in quality of materials or specification. It has a waterproof, windproof and breathable drop liner, removable thermal liner and popper and Velcro® retained storm flap over its YKK® main zip. Fully vented for the warmer days, like the Atlanta, the Zurich’s collar can be held open with the loop and hook system.

Velcro® adjusters feature at the waist, arms and cuffs, and there are stretch panels at the shoulders and protection is provided by removable CE-approved armour at shoulders, elbows and back.

The Zurich boasts six external pockets, including two small ones with waterproof zips, and four internal pockets too. Plus a waterproof ‘Napoleon’ pocket and large rear pocket. It’s available in sizes S-5XL, in Black and Black/Stone.

Prexport Street, for stylish feet

New from Italian boot-makers Prexport, the Street boot combines high-street styling and comfort with rugged materials to create a cool boot for summer.

Prexport-Street-Brown-LRWith a full-grain leather upper, Texon insole reinforced with a steel blade and composite protectors in the heel and toe, the Street is significantly more robust than a fashion shoe, making it a practical choice for riders of bikes and scooters, yet more comfortable and stylish to wear for walking than traditional motorcycle boots.

The upper is treated and aged for a vintage look; inside is a fully breathable Airtex membrane, which helps to keep the foot cool and dry. Padding around the ankle provides extra comfort.

A zipped and laced closure gives a snug and secure fit and, combined with an integral pull tab on the rear, making the Street quick and easy to get in and out of.

There’s even reflective detailing on the heel, for added visibility in low light conditions.

Prexport Street boots are available in sizes 41-47 [UK 7-12], in stylish vintage brown or grey, priced at just £99.99 including VAT.
