Our Two Cents
The Twist of Fate 2.0 leather jacket is a very high quality race jacket that would be at home on the track or the street. With the majority of the front of the torso being perforated, as well as some perforations on the upper arms and back, the Twist of Fate 2.0 is best suited to mild to hot weather rides. The jacket is lined with a nylon mesh material on the inside, which is comfortable against the skin and will also let plenty of air flow at speed. What is most impressive about the Twist of Fate jacket though is its protective features. Equipped with CE approved armor from Knox, the Twist of Fate leaves me feeling very safe and secure. The CE approved armor for the shoulders and elbows is removable, although it can only be accessed through one Velcro opening in the liner. The Knox CE approved spine pad is very substantial, and feels like it would do a very good job protecting the back. The only downside to such a thick back pad is it’s a bit stiff feeling, but I suspect that feeling would be reduced with break in. 1.2 – 1.4 mm leather is used in the construction of this jacket. It is slightly less stiff than comparable leather jackets and race suits, and there are stretch panels behind the elbows and shoulders, which add some freedom of movement. The sleeves are rotated forward and pre-curved for the riding position, which is noticeable when standing, but makes the jacket comfortable once seated on the bike. Keprotec stretch panels are used at the inner arms, and there are snap sleeve take ups to help keep the elbow armor securely in place. Once this jacket is broken in it should be very comfortable. There isn’t any sort of liner included so keep in mind the temperature range you plan on using this jacket in, as it will probably be a bit chilly in colder weather.
