Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog, this blog revolves around the brand new Frank Thomas Evo Race textile motorcycle jacket and what it has to offer. Lets take a look!
The Frank Thomas Evo Race WP Sport textile motorcycle jacket has a sports styling with a shorter length. This is available in 4 colours. Black, Black and White, Black and neon Orange and Black and fluorescent Yellow. There is also a matching trouser available in plain black. (which matches all colours) The premium outer fabric has Frank Thomas branding in each colourway.
The Frank Thomas Evo Race WP is fully CE certified. This has CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows as well as a pocket for a back protector. The Evo Race also features highly impact resistant TPU protectors at the shoulders. The premium textile shell is highly durable and has double stitching in key areas. Subtle reflective detailing gives added night visibility and three of the four colourways available have contrasting coloured patterns to add to the visibility. Especially the hi-viz neon orange and fluorescent yellow colourways. Remember the old adage, be safe, be seen!
The Frank Thomas Evo Race WP jacket is made from a highly-durable textile construction but is extremely comfortable and smooth to the touch. The 4-way stretch outer gives added movement and comfort, while variable sizing at the arms and waist ensure the perfect fit. This also adds to the safety as this means the armour stays put in the right place should the worst happen. Inside the Race Evo WP is a removable quilted comfort lining which is removable in warmer weather. Resealable air vents in key areas give added air circulation for supreme comfort in warmer weather too. The armour is also removable.The rear of the jacket is extended to make sure your rear is properly covered! This also prevents wind (and water!) ingress.
As explained above, the Frank Thomas Race Evo WP is suitable for all seasons with a removable thermal liner along with resealable air vents at the shoulders, forearms and back along with cool mesh lining to keep you fresh. This is also 100% waterproof thanks to the breathable waterproof membrane. Another way in which this is a practical jacket is this comes with a 360-degree connection zip that attaches this to matching trousers. This also comes with handy storage in the form of a phone pocket, Napoleon pocket, internal pocket and two outer zipped pockets. This is also adjustable to pit you perfectly – it doesn’t get more practical than that!
The short, sports styling isn’t for everyone. Lots of bikers use leathers for sports riding and textiles for touring and don’t like to blur those lines. While the Frank Thomas Race Evo WP jacket can be used for touring, this jacket doesn’t specifically, have all the whistles and bells that a designed for touring motorcycle jacket has to offer. The rear is extended, but there will be an army of loyal three-quarter length jacket fans who will not be swayed from their comfort and styling.
While the shorter, sports styling may not be for everyone, the Frank Thomas Evo Race WP is a fantastic jacket made from premium 4-way stretch giving you a highly comfortable, stylish and durable jacket with many safety features and practicalities to make this jacket suitable for all seasons, versatile for all bikes and a great buy.
Until next time, stay safe,
