Viking Cycle Ironside Silver Textile Motorcycle Jacket
One of the great things about Southern California is the year-round motorcycle riding. No matter what month of the year it is you’ll be sure to see motorcycles on the road. The challenge Motorcycle riders have in the summer is finding the right balance of protection and ventilation. While some riders prefer just to ride in their T-shirts, I certainly do not. I have seen the consequences of what happens if there is an accident. Obviously, my go-to jackets are full leather jackets. They last a long time, they are good for multiple crashes, and of course offer the best protection (I have learned this firsthand). When riding in Summer the challenge is not dying of heat stroke, at times the temperature can rise over 100 degrees. Imagine wearing a leather jacket in that heat!
The solution to this problem comes by balancing the risk to reward ratio. Have protection while maximizing the ventilation / breathability. The Viking Cycle Ironside Textile jacket would be one to consider for those summer rides. As it is made of 100% 600D polyester and has their state-of-the-art V-Safe Protection system. Their V-Safe Protection system is CE-Approved while also being flexible. Adjustability is also a key component for a riding jacket. It has Velcro adjustment for the wrist, and the waist, button adjustments for the forearm and bicep. Last but not least this jacket has reflective piping on the shoulders, chest, and back. Making you visible to other riders and drivers. This jacket comes to par with the likes of the top name brands like Alpinestar Dainese etc. at only a fraction of the price.
