WIN MOTORCYCLE GEAR FROM PAGNOL AND VELOMACCHI
WIN MOTORCYCLE GEAR Today we’ve got an exciting moto gear giveaway for Bike EXIF readers. And if you’re handy with pen and ink or a stylus, you could win an even bigger prize.The prizes include jackets, gloves and luggage from two of our favorite high-end brands: Pagnol and Velomacchi.
The $525 Pagnol M1 is a slim fit jacket with a ‘modern classic’ feel. Designed for everyday riding, it looks good on and off the bike. The styling is timeless, and the fit is comfortable, with Schoeller Kevlar fabric on the shoulders and in the center of the upper back. Pockets are provided for shoulder, elbow and back armor.
The jacket is made from tough yet supple 1.2mm cowhide, and constructed to ensure maximum abrasion resistance and durability. The hardware is high quality, antique-style brass and the mesh lining includes pockets for adding the armor of your choice.
If you’re a lady who likes to ride, you can specify a Pagnol W1 instead of an M1. The retro-modern styled W1 is designed for everyday riding, and looks good on and off the bike. And although the feel is classic, the fit is feminine and comfortable.
When it comes to gloves, many riders want an elusive mix: Classic style with modern protection. The $70 Pagnol M4 nails it with tough yet supple leather, and 1/4″ foam padding that to protect your knuckles. You can wear them under or over your sleeves, thanks to a cleverly engineered wrist adjustment system.
Velomacchi builds performance bags, gloves, and accessories inspired by the culture of privateer racing. This Duffle (above) is the newest release from the Oregon-based brand: the ultimate watertight ADV pack for exploring back roads or traveling the world. You can carry it as a duffle, as a backpack, or as a shoulder bag—or securely strap it down to your motorcycle or roof rack.Made from abrasion-resistant 1000D Cordura and costing $399, the 50-liter pack includes easy-access side and document pockets, and seals with tough #10 YKK zipper.
The Velomacchi Roll-top Backpack is a watertight 28-liter pack (above) that carries your load close to your center of gravity, taking the weight off your shoulders and allowing for a more aggressive riding style. The $399 bag is designed to carry a computer or tablet for extreme commuting during the week, and can then swap to carrying a hydration system when you’re exploring the trails on the weekend.
