Our Two Cents
We just received a shipment of the Fuel jackets from our distributor. We took all they had, so we are able to offer them at a great price. Use the drop down menu above to see what sizes/colors remain. My comments from last season… Some folks just don’t like the looks of a full leather jacket, but they know leather provides a greater measure of abrasion protection as compared to textile or mesh. But the Fuel jacket offers the looks and advantages of a textile jacket with overlays of leather on the shoulders and elbows to provide a greater measure of crash protection. And for impact protection, it comes with CE approved “turtle shell” type armor in the shoulders and elbows. Foam back pad is also included. Four popular color schemes are offered to go with almost any bike. For climate control, you get two zippered chest vents, zippered vents on the sleeve ends and two rear exhaust vents. In colder weather you can use the removable thermal liner. It’s a full sleeve design, so it should provide a good barrier against the cold. The jacket has a short rear zipper for attachment to pants. We have a nice set of close-up photos of this jacket’s features, so take the “View Larger Pictures” link above and have a look.
