Josh Taylor needed some motorcycle kit, and where better to go than J&S Accessories Ltd?
For those of you not in the know, Josh Taylor is a professional boxer and current UNIFIED WORLD CHAMPION!! This means he is and has been the WBA, IBF, Ring Magazine, WBSS Champion, WBC Diamond champion, WBC silver champion and Commonwealth champion. Let’s just say he is incredibly accomplished. When we heard he was after some kit from J&S Accessories we HAD to get a blog on him!
Josh very kindly obliged, and even brought his belt in when he came to try kit on! Despite his ferocity in the ring, Josh could not have been more of a gentleman. He even let us take photos of him in his chosen gear.
Our Hamilton store happens to be the closest store to him. He came down for a good trying on session. Josh needed some leathers so spent some time having a look around and trying on. He eventually plumped for the following items:
BKS Apex Suit
Available in a choice of colours, The BKS Apex suit is a one-piece race suit made from premium grade leather and is the result of in-depth research and development with top professional superbike riders. Seams are triple stitched for added abrasion resistance and this also offers CE approved armour at the shoulders, elbows, forearms and knees. Made from premium grade leather, the BKS Apex suit also features external protectors to the shoulders and knees as well as a race hump for maximum aerodynamics.
BKS Evolution Pro Boots
The BKS Evolution Pro motorcycle boots are a race boot with added protection throughout. The microfibre construction is both ultra-durable and lightweight with accordion detailing for freedom of movement. A mesh liner keeps your feet fresh along with ventilation throughout. Available in a choice of colours and even in a waterproof version.
BKS Race Evo Gloves
Josh Taylor opted to go for the BKS Race Evo motorcycle gloves. They are fully CE approved and made from premium grade leather. The longer gauntlet styling provides added protection with moulded protectors in key areas. Adjustability at the cuff gives a personalised fit.
Arai Axces III Matrix Helmet
To complete the monochrome look, Josh wears the Arai Axces III Matrix full-face motorcycle helmet in black, white and gold. The Axces III is available in a choice of colours and designs and is a great racing helmet. It features Arai’s “Hyper Ridge” bumper reinforcement band that reinforces and strengthens the helmet whilst also flaring out to make it easier to put on and take off. Made from ultra-lightweight Super Fibre Laminate, this is rounder, smoother and stronger than ever before. A fantastic helmet at a great price with J&S!
I think we can all agree Josh looks great in his kit from J&S!
