More choice for the female biker!

More Choice For The Female Biker

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog,

The other day on Facebook I shared a photo on Instagram that one of our staff had posted of some kit that she loved.

Liz (on Instagram R1Liz – check her and her art out!) happens to be a biker who loves pink and works at our Portsmouth store.

This is the post I shared:

This post got more of a reaction than I had anticipated. The “pinkness” of the post seemed to be the problem with quite a few commentators being irritated by this. The pink motorcycle clothing also got a lot of support – it seems to be a real dividing colour!

I just wanted to write a blog to say that here at J&S Accessories Ltd we do not just stock pink clothing for ladies. We do stock pink clothing because it is a very popular colour and something we get asked for a lot, but we also stock LOTS of other colours and choice for female bikers. We also endeavour to stock kit that fits well in realistic sizing for all shapes, heights and sizes.

When I started working at J&S well over a decade ago, the choice for female bikers was woefully bad. It was pretty much men’s clothing, in tiny sizes, with no adjustability and no shape.

We have come a LONG way in that time and whilst we can go further, I wanted to show what great choices we have available for women NOT in pink. So here is a blog for the naysayers – a blistering selection of ladies clothing that is NOT pink!

BKS Roxy Motorcycle LeggingsThe BKS Roxy leggings have CE approved armour at the knees as well as Aramid lining all through the trousers making them extra protective.

These are also our best-selling jeans as they stretch to fit so are flattering to all shapes and sizes.

The HJC CL-Y motorcycle helmet is designed for the more petite head. This is aimed at women (with smaller heads) and children and is designed to be ultra-lightweight for added comfort whilst also being highly protective. This is available in six colours – only two of which are pink!

Another bestseller for us is the BKS Chelsea leather jacket and matching leather jeans. Made from highly supple yet durable cowhide the Chelsea has CE approved armour and a sleek all-black design with stretch inserts for a great fit.
