Beat the Heat with High Temperature-Resistant Boots

 Motorcycle Riders Beat the Heat with High Temperature-Resistant Boots

New TFL COOL SYSTEM technology drastically improves thermal comfort in performance footwear from Harley-Davidson

With the Spring thaw just around the corner and the warm weather of riding season on the horizon, Harley-Davidson Footwear  is excited to announce the integration of heat resistant leather technology into their Spring 2018 line.

The new heat-resistant leather is designed specifically to improve thermal comfort for riders during long trips on sun-soaked days and will be integrated into both men’s and women’s styles in 2018.

“It’s essential for riders’ safety that they wear protective footwear on the road,” said Amy Lovall, Wolverine’s product manager of the Harley-Davidson Footwear product line. “As temperatures soar we often hear how hot and uncomfortable riders’ feet can become. This heat-resistant leather innovation is game-changing for summer riders. By incorporating it into a series of well-loved riding silhouettes for men and women we’ve created a collection that perfectly combines durability, design and comfort.”

Resistant

The secret to this heat-resistant leather is TFL COOL SYSTEM technology, which keeps boot temperatures up to 54°F cooler than standard leather when exposed to the sun’s rays over time. This in turn reduces the surface temperature of the boot’s leather by reflecting infrared rays for improved long-term thermal comfort.

The TFL COOL SYSTEM is based on a sun reflective technology where energy is reflected in the invisible part of the solar spectrum. Dark colors absorb radiation from the sun and therefore heat up faster and more intensely than light colors. Black TFL COOL SYSTEM leathers reflect the sunlight like white colored ones. In contrast, traditional black pigmented leather absorbs heat from the sun, which can raise the boot temperature up to a sweltering 140 degrees.

Harley-Davidson Footwear will debut six new styles featuring TFL COOL SYSTEM technology for Spring 2018 that combine some of the most iconic riding boot silhouettes with the unmistakable attitude and style Harley- Davidson fans have come to know and love. These new men’s and women’s styles will include engineer, lace-up and harness silhouettes and incorporate other performance features including Goodyear Welt Construction and abrasion-, oil- and slip-resistant outsoles to help improve comfort, performance and safety on the open road. These styles will be available exclusively at Harley-Davidson dealerships and will retail from $160 to $200.

Fox Creek Classic Motorcycle Chaps

By | Clothing

Motorcycle ChapsFox Creek Leather Classic Motorcycle Chaps

We recently got the chance to examine Fox Creek Leather’s Motorcycle Chaps. I sent the company my measurements and shortly afterwards received them in the mail. Right off the bat I was impressed by the quality of the leather and the stitching. The workmanship throughout is excellent. The fit is snug, but not stiff, and they don’t flap in the wind.

Fox Creek

The workmanship is very nice

The full grain leather is super soft and supple. It is thick (1.4-1.6mm) and luxurious, with a beautiful grain. The double stitching throughout is very strong. According to the folks at Fox Creek Leather, this chaps are the product that inspired their Lifetime warranty. They tell us that they used to have a five year warranty, but “never had to back it up”, so they changed it to a lifetime warranty. The construction is seamless in the front, so it is very effective in keeping out the elements.

Fox Creek

The zippers are YKK

The belt and solid brass buckle are as solidly constructed as the rest of the chaps. The buckle incorporates a roller, so the belt won’t wear out at the holes from repeated use. There are three snaps at the bottom of the leg to make them easy to get over boots. The zippers are very heavy-duty, made by YKK . They will surely last the life of the garment.

adjustment

Adjustable for spreading girth

I really feel comfortable wearing these motorcycle chaps. The fit is excellent, and the chaps are completely wind proof, warm and protective. There is a leather lace in the back of the waist to allow for weight gain over the years, making this a once for a lifetime purchase.

Fox Creek

Made in USA

I think the number one appeal of these chaps is that they are handmade, in America, by American craftsmen. This writer finds the Fox Creek line exceptional in this regard. Everything in the catalog is Made in America. Whatever one’s feelings about imported goods, it gives me pleasure to know that my fellow Americans are working because of my purchase of these chaps.

Quinn: Style & Functional Comfort On & Off The Bike

By | Clothing | One Comment

Press Release: Roland Sands Designs Makes A Statement
Less is more… Roland Sands Designs makes a bold statement in women’s riding gear with the intentionally understated Quinn leather jacket. Throw in a proven track record for performance, protection and durability and you have a functional piece of art that is as unique as the riders themselves. 
        The Quinn features a host of hidden features and subtle technical enhancements that take it from the realm of fashion wear to real riding gear. “Women don’t necessarily want to look like a MotoGP racer but they want to be comfortable on the bike and look good” says Roland Sands, the former racer who has worn plenty of roadracing leathers in his day. “But make no mistake, this is a performance-fit riding jacket, not a fashion accessory.”

        The Quinn jacket combines rotated, pre-curved sleeves and dropped back length with an aggressive riding fit. “You will fall in love with the soft and supple top grain leather,” he adds. Unlike stiff race wear, the Quinn forms to your body and provides an ease in movement like you won’t find in an average riding jacket. “Combine all this with our silky satin poly lining, perforated leather panel sleeve inserts and you have a jacket that is just as comfortable and sexy on or off your bike.”
        RSD’s standard attention to detail means power stretch shoulder panels for ease of motion, a relaxed collar opening and zip close cuffs. Zippered panels at the waist enable the Quinn to conform to the curves for a custom-tailored look off the bike, while armor-ready pockets in the shoulders, elbow and back make it ready for action when you are on the bike. 

FEATURES:

·         Top grain cowhide construction (.6mm – .8mm thickness)
·         Power Stretch back shoulder panels
·         Zip-close cuffs, waist and pockets
·         Aggressive riding fit, with rotated pre-curved sleeves and dropped back length 
·         Relaxed collar opening
·         Perforated leather panel sleeve inserts
·         Armor-ready shoulder, elbow and back protector pockets
·         Colors: Black & Tan
·         Sizes: S – 2XL

Available in Black and Tan, MSRP: $550
