One thing that many women riding motorcycles and scooters struggle with is finding riding gear that's stylish and safe.
Well, REV'IT has decided to throw their hat in the ring with 2 new jackets for Fall (with a couple more coming in the Winter, so stay tuned :D). The Gracia is a wax cotton, 3/4 length, waterproof jacket with a vintage look and feel. Offered in black and brown, this little number features a removable thermal liner and Knox lite armor in the shoulders and elbows. There's also a pocket for an optional back protector, which will fit Knox or TPro shaped armor.
The second option is the Taksim, offered in black and olive:
The Taksim is also waterproof, with a removable thermal liner and Knox lite armor in the shoulders and elbows. It has a pocket for an optional back protector. Don't worry, the (fake) fur hood is removable.
Both of these are priced at $300 and are great options for riding around town on your scooter or motorcycle. I wouldn't recommend them for highway riding or touring/distance rides but definitely kickass alternatives for that short commute across town to work.
I'm super excited to see these hit the floor at Scuderia soon (most likely October) and will post once I have some real people trying them on (myself included).
This looks interesting, unfortunately it's only available in Canada. I can't even find it on the manufacturer's website. Perhaps it'll be added soon. http://www.motoress.com/readarticle.asp?articleid=426&c=gearstyle NEXO Sports
