Riding Gear – Fuel Downtown Denim Jacket

From building custom motorcycles to manufacturing riding gear is there nothing Fuel Motorcycles can’t do? From their Barcelona based HQ, the Fuel MC team have just released their first independent range of protective riding gear starting with the new Downtown denim jacket and just like their motorcycles it performs as well as it looks.

The Downtown jacket is the perfect addition to every motorcyclist summer riding gear wardrobe. Constructed from 12.5 oz indigo denim the Downtown features a classic cut that’s been optimised for riding. The jacket’s front secures with a YKK zipper that’s covered by a press stud secured windproof flap. Additional wind protection is provided by the jackets mandarin style collar as well as zippers and press studs on each sleeve. The low cut back keeps your kidneys covered while riding and a comprehensive wax treatment will keep you dry during light showers.

As motorcyclists themselves, the Fuel MC team understand the importance of protection and they haven’t cut any corners with the Downtown jacket. Beneath its denim outer layer lies a Para-Aramid inner layer that’s abrasion resistant. Additional accident fortification comes in the form of CE level 2 armour in the elbows, shoulders and back that are included in the jackets price and it’s all contained within a moisture-wicking mesh liner.
