Product Information

'By City' is a brand of motorcycle clothing that you probably won't have heard of before, although we've been monitoring their progress for a few years now. As their name suggests, the company is all about the kind of gear you would wear riding in the city. There's some really nice gear coming through later in the year but, for now, we've chosen just one item. It's a mesh jacket with a leather chassis. And that makes it quite unique. The problem with your average £100 mesh jacket is that it's not particularly strong in an accident situation. Yes, these jackets flow air but, slide down the road and they don't tend to fare too well. This new mesh jacket, called the Sahara Venty, meets the new CE EN17092 standard and comes with Level 2 armour in the elbows and shoulders. But its point of difference is the leather that makes up the body of the jacket. It is going to be stronger than the Nylon structure of most mesh pieces. We also think it looks great. The leather, of course, is quite lightweight because when it's hot, weight is your enemy, but even lighter, thinner leather is going to be stronger than the material in most mesh jackets. It's no Forsair or Marrakesh, but it is a step up from your normal mesh jacket. No two ways about it.
