Riding Gear – Akin Alpha 2.0 Jacket

From the crew at Australian riding gear outfit Akin, comes the second edition of their awesome Alpha motorcycle jacket. After the release of the first Alpha jacket, the Akin crew put it through some serious field testing. From cruising the Aussie coastline to tackling some of the world’s highest roads in the Himalayas. While the Alpha had no problem withstanding the rigors of extreme riding, Akin decided there were a few things that could be done better. This lead to the development of the new Akin Alpha 2.0 motorcycle jacket.

The Akin Alpha 2.0 is constructed from 600D Cordura which offers protection against both abrasion and harsh weather conditions. One of the main goals with Alpha 2.0 was to create a jacket with a more tailored appearance. To do this Akin have improved the fit of the jacket around the shoulders, collar, and sleeves. Increased comfort was another aim of the new design and it was done by incorporating small touches such as a neoprene lined collar and cuffs, specially designed “wind-blocker” sleeves and easy access air vents.

During the construction of each Alpha 2.0 jacket Akin has used nothing but the highest quality materials. Premium leather trims, YKK zippers and hook and loop closures make this jacket great value for money. To keep your EDC items safe and dry the internal pockets of the Alpha 2.0 are water resistant. The sleeves are preserved for comfort and the longer back will keep your kidneys warm during winter rides. For increased safety, the Alpha 2.0 offers the option of installing shoulder, elbow and back armour. When there’s a threat of rain you can also affix the jackets removable hood.

Akin describe the Alpha 2.0 as “The perfect fusion of style and protection” and it’s easy to see why. On or off the bike the Alpha cuts a fine figure. Branding is limited to a subtle logo on the lower back and a discreet stamped leather patch on the chest. Best of all Akin are happy to supply their customers with an Alpha 2.0 motorcycle jacket in any colour… as long as it’s black.
