Product Information

The Belstaff Trialmaster is, of course, an old favourite. It's a classic, belted, four pocket jacket based very closely on the style of jacket that was made popular by trials riders in the fifties and sixties. It was worn by factory test riders as well as competition riders like Sammy Miller and Bud Edkins. Steve McQueen often wore a Belstaff like this although not, obviously, on the 1964 ISDT, when he wore a Barbour. Che Guevara also famously wore a Trialmaster on his South American adventure that was written about in his famous Motorcycle Diaries.

This jacket is made from heavy duty 10 ounce British Millerain wax cotton and incorporates a waterproof, seam-sealed membrane made from a material known as Miporex. The outer layer is wax cotton which is water resistant but not really waterproof, and whilst no motorcycle jacket can ever lay claim to being 100% waterproof, the Trialmaster 2.0 is undoubtedly an improvement over its predecessor.

Inside the jacket, you get the de rigueur tartan or plaid lining, and the collar and cuffs are lined with corduroy for extra comfort. The sleeves are lightly padded for warmth but, to keep the riders body warm, there's a heavy-duty 150 gramme, quilted Micro-Valtherm gilet that can be unzipped for summer riding. When it comes to protection, the Trialmaster 2.0 has the very latest CE approved D3O armour in the shoulders and elbows; this armour is light and very malleable, yet it becomes super tough on impact. There’s a pocket in the back for a back protector, which we can supply to the Level 1 or the Level 2 standard (Level 2 is thicker and heavier, obviously).

All the pockets on the jacket have waterproof flaps. You get an internal pocket. The neck and cuffs are adjustable, and the shoulders and elbows both have quilted patches over the base wax cotton outer for added abrasion resistance.

All in all, it’s a cracking piece. Yes, it’s more expensive than the old version but it is, without doubt, a better, more technical, more wearable and more protective item of motorcycle apparel.

This jacket is also known as the Belstaff Tourist Trophy jacket and is part of the Belstaff Pure Motorcycle Collection.

gordon martin: Product Review

is the trailmaster available in brown?

Angus Stewart: Mr

I bought my first Belstaff Trialmaster in 2009, to my surprise I did no have to re-proof it until the end of last year (2016), and it's been out in some pretty horrendous weather, and done some long trips across Europe. It came to a sticky end when I had a front wheel blow-out and it proved itself an effective bit of kit in protecting me from what should have been really nasty. In fact if I hadn't had large bunches of keys in the side pocket it may have survived the scrape down the road. So, despite it being expensive I decided that I had to replace it, I love it too much not to!
