Style. Comfort. Protection.
Once again these three qualities are at the heart of our work.
We like motorcycle jackets that are versatile. Sometimes we want to go for a bike ride, other times we want to ride to a café or a restaurant or just hang-out with friends. That's why we make a range of jackets, some with high visibility and obvious motorcycle specific features, and others which are more low-key, which conceals their specialization. Subtle and sophisticated, these "stealth" jackets have no extra seams, superfluous pockets, or gaudy graphics.
Most of our hot weather motorcycle jackets are constructed from abrasion resistant Cordura 1000D. With the look of a 12oz canvas, this Nylon 6.6 fabric has superlative technical features. It is made to Assero's specification with a loose weave for maximum air-flow and a soft "feel" for comfort. The fibres have a water repellant finish, and the dye chemistry meets ISO 105 Grade 4 for wash, UV, and perspiration resistance.
Air flows through the entire body of Assero jackets. In addition, we put in mesh panels and carefully designed vents so our jackets are more comfortable and cooler than any motorcycle jackets made of leather or denim. And this is done without compromising safety. Where we use mesh within the garment we add the Assero Safety Webbing System (ASWS), one inch webbing that runs behind mesh panels. In the event of an accident the webbing stops the panels from separating. We are the only motorcycle gear manufacturer with this feature.
All of our motorcycle jackets are engineered to perform way beyond conventional clothing in terms of tensile strength, seam strength, and abrasion resistance. For example, where we include an Assero Safety Seam it contains a concealed seam sewn beneath the outer fabric. The outer fabric is then folded over the safety seam and sewn down. This lapped construction provides huge strength and protects the internal seam from abrasion - and the rider in the event of an accident.
To round out safety, our motorcycle jackets include certified EN 1621-1 SAS-TEC shoulder and elbow protectors. They also include a rear pocket for a SAS-TEC hot weather back protector and a concealed rear zip to fasten to motorcycle pants.
