City Break - Motorcycle Style Guide

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog,

As you know storage space is limited on a motorbike but I wanted to give you some options for a weekend away on the bike where you want to pack light. This capsule wardrobe in particular is versatile enough to wear on or off the bike so you don’t have to pack double the amount of clothes to save you even more space.

The IXS Derby Jacket is a casual looking jacket with hidden protection and a waterproof membrane – making you ready for all weather! The classic urban styling is both fashionable and convenient with a removable hood.

The Alpinestars Spartan Gloves are a lightweight short cuff glove that are easily stored but convenient enough to keep on you to use at any point. These offer knuckle protectors and a subtle plain design.

Obviously no helmet is compact enough to just put in your pocket and you, obviously, wouldn’t wear a helmet casually like a hat, but the HJC IS Max 2 Elements Black helmet is a flip-front helmet with Nylex interior to help maintain your temperature as well as an internal sun-visor for all lights/temperatures.

The Alpinestars Wordmark Tee is a high quality branded t-shirt with an Alpinestars logo on the front. This, obviously, doesn’t have any protective qualities but it is a nice t-shirt!

The Red Route Red 017 Modica denim motorcycle jeans are a protective jean with not only subtle (and removable) CE approved armour at the knees but also the added benefit of Kevlar lining in vulnerable areas. The other styling is casual and fashionable with a slim fit leg and classic blue denim stylings. The ideal jean to take away with you on the bike as these give versatility and protection.

Available in black or brown, the BKS Tornado Boots, again, offer protection but don’t look like motorcycle boots. These could be your run of the mill fashion boot. Paired with jeans they can smarten up your outfit and they also just happen to be waterproof for added convenience!

If you wanted to go for a more casual look there is always the Alpinestars Chrome Hoodie. As casual looking hoodie with removable CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows. Not too hot and bulky and very casual in styling.  The camouflage colourway is exclusive to J&S Accessories Ltd.

If a boot isn’t really your style and trainers are more you thing then the Dainese Street Biker D-WP shoes are for you. Deceptively protective, these are actually fully CE approved with hidden added protection throughout. Also they are fully waterproof so your feet will be dry at all times. They certainly don’t look like motorcycle shoes – the only thing giving them away is the world renowned Dainese logo. The lace-up closure makes them look just like your run of the mill trainers.

“What are we going to put all of these wonderful products in?” I hear you cry…. how about the Oxford XB25S Rucksack which not only has a handy helmet carrier (which solves the problem of lugging your helmet round with you) but also has a handy waterproof cover should you need it.

All of these items are available online and in our 30 stores nationwide – if you are going on a UK city break why not see if there is a J&S there? You never know your luck in a big city!

Until next time, stay safe,

Alex
