Rokker Legend single-layer jean review

Originally published on: 29/04/2022 12:16

We love single-layer motorcycle jeans. In fact, so enamoured are we of this form of construction that we haven’t offered traditional kevlar jeans for quite a few years. Our dislike of lined jeans, whatever they are lined with, has little to do with how protective they are. And that’s because some lined jeans are very protective. Some, of course, especially those that are only partially lined, are not particularly protective. But that’s not our point; our antipathy towards lined jeans come down to one key factor. Namely, that they are lined.

Single-layer motorcycle jeans vs Kevlar motorcycle jeans

Originally published on: 13/04/2022 13:44

This is another one of those email bulletins that will only be of interest to some people. Certainly, I would imagine that most Motolegends customers will already know the difference between these two types of construction. But not everybody is so enlightened, so we are putting this video out to explain the difference to those who might still be a little confused. So here goes.

Tricker's motorcycle boots for gentlemen

Originally published on: 12/04/2022 11:17

For the last four or five years we have worked with Trickers on a motorcycling boot. There’s been a bit of a break during the pandemic, but excitingly our new collaboration, the Roadster boot, has just arrived with us.

The Motolegends Honda CRF300 Rally adventure bikes

Originally published on: 30/03/2022 16:51

It was the early part of lockdown 2021. I think it was a Sunday. We were working away in the Airstream. Sara was supposed to be doing something important on the website, but was in reality researching potential holiday opportunities. I was writing an email bulletin. Suddenly Sara popped her head above a screen: “We should get ourselves a couple of off-road bikes so we can do a bit more green laning. One day we might even be able to do parts of the TET”.

What is a laminated motorcycle garment? How does it work?

Originally published on: 16/03/2022 16:19

If you’re an experienced motorcyclist who takes a keen interest in the gear you ride in you may know all about laminated membranes, how they work and what they do. And if this is the case, don’t bother reading any further. Go polish the bike or go for a ride. Because what we are going to talk about now will not be of interest. But there’s still a lot of confusion out there. And there are lots of misunderstandings about what the benefits of laminated membranes are, and what the downsides are.

Spidi J&Dyneema Evo jean review

Originally published on: 04/03/2022 15:07

Spidi got into cool, riding jeans way before most other brands knew such a thing existed. They’ve been producing good-looking bike jeans for more than 20 years, using a variety of materials and fabrics. They have used an aramid fibre known as Keramide. They’ve used Dyneema and they’ve used Cordura. It wouldn’t be untrue to suggest that they were the pioneers in the creation of bike jeans that didn’t look like bike jeans.

Dainese Classic Tex pant review

Originally published on: 04/03/2022 11:38

We haven’t, historically, always been huge fans of the famous Italian brand. They are notoriously arrogant and difficult to work with, and we have often been of the view that the company is more about style than substance. But for the first time in living memory Dainese now has a proper UK importer, and so we have decided to put our toe in the water and offer a few, hand-picked styles.

Rukka Comfo-R jacket review

Originally published on: 03/03/2022 14:38

In recent years, lots of motorcyclists have convinced themselves that, when it comes to a waterproof, textile suit, laminated is the way to go. And it has to be acknowledged that laminated membranes do bring some advantages to some riders in some circumstances.

10 reasons not to visit the Motolegends shop

Originally published on: 04/02/2022 15:22

This might seem like a strange message for a company to put out about itself. And, of course, we think that there are just as many, and hopefully more, good reasons to visit see us, but by the same token we accept that we are not the right shop for everyone.

Rukka Nivala 2 jacket review

Originally published on: 27/01/2022 13:44

The original Nivala suit was first launched in 2016; and it would be no exaggeration to suggest that it changed perceptions about laminated motorcycle gear. When you laminate a waterproof membrane to fabric or material you make it stiffer. You make it stiffer still if you then back the membrane with a third layer.

How to stay warm on a motorcycle

Originally published on: 24/01/2022 13:37

Recently, we published an article on how to stay dry on a motorcycle. In that piece, we covered a number of topics, like how membranes work, how water finds its way into garments, and what you can do to try to stay as dry when riding as you possibly can.

Ask the Chap

So if watching a video is going to work better for you, just click on the visual above.

Motorcycle leather suit vs textile suit. Which is best?

Originally published on: 12/01/2022 15:51

Some time ago we launched a new service called ‘Ask the Chap’, where we invite people to ask questions about motorcycle gear. One of the questions that has come up a lot is: what’s best, leather gear or textile gear? And so today I am going to try and provide an answer on that hotly debated topic.

Schuberth C5 helmet vs Shoei Neotec 2 helmet

Originally published on: 15/12/2021 12:54

The Schuberth C5 is about to hit the shelves. Some months ago, we were supplied with a pre-production prototype to look at, but now the helmet has been released, and so we thought this might be a good time to compare the new C5 with the undisputed flip-lid, market leader: the Shoei Neotec 2.

How to stay dry on a motorcycle

Originally published on: 09/12/2021 12:59

The first point I would make is that if you ride a motorbike, there are going to be circumstances in which you are going to get wet. I often joke about the fact that if you really want to stay warm and dry, you should take the car, but there’s an inconvenient truth here. There’s no way of guaranteeing that you will always stay dry if you ride a motorbike.

Motorcycle Christmas Gift Guide 2021

Originally published on: 08/12/2021 15:51

Back in the day, we used to send out catalogues every month. Well, that ship has sailed; catalogues are simply too expensive and not sufficiently cost efficient. Which is a shame because we always used to enjoy putting together our Christmas issue, highlighting all the best gear that had come through during the year, and putting together buying guides for those looking for Christmas gifts.

When should I replace my motorcycle helmet?

Originally published on: 03/12/2021 09:42

This is another one of those oft asked questions. And I don’t know whether I can give you a totally satisfactory answer, because there simply is no scientific and objective measure as to when and whether a helmet needs to be replaced. But I have been doing this for a while. I have been to a lot of factories. And I have spoken with a lot of experts, particularly those involved with the race teams. I have picked up some knowledge along the way. And so today, it is my intention to share with you everything I know. Combine what I am going to tell you with a good dose of common sense, and you should put yourself in a better position to make a more informed decision.

What is the best motorcycle helmet?

Originally published on: 21/11/2021 17:04

A question that gets asked a lot on the internet is: “What’s the best helmet”? Or: “Who makes the best helmet”? to asking who makes the best motorbike. Ask 10 experts and you will get at least 10 different answers.
