Fashion meets function

11th December 2009

Next generation Harley-Davidson FXRG outerwear, which incorporates the latest innovations in riding technology, arrived in dealerships in March and has since proven to be a popular choice for motorcyclists this season. The extensive collection of jackets, trousers and gloves is ideal for riders looking for stylish clothing that is also durable, functional and comfortable, and demand for the products is outweighing supply.

The FXRG Textile Jacket is one of the most popular additions to the men’s 2009 collection, and was recently chosen by Lord Charles Brockett for his gruelling 9,500-mile journey across Europe and the Middle East. As well as being lightweight, wind and waterproof, the jacket’s innovative Airguard fabric is abrasion and tear resistant – providing added peace of mind in extreme riding conditions.

The jacket’s waterproof material, fixed CoolMax lining and wind and waterproof c_change membrane, which reacts to body temperature and moisture levels, also ensures riders enjoy a comfortable journey whatever the weather.

Demonstrating its versatility, the jacket’s breathable Primaloft liner offers superior warmth in a lightweight, water-repellent shell, and can be removed and worn separately. Other features include an interior pocket system, 3M Scotchlite reflective piping for added visibility, large vertical front and back vents for body temperature regulation, removable CE-approved lightweight body armour and kidney belt, as well as an action back with pre-curved sleeves.

"Having just ridden 10,000 miles circumnavigating the Mediterranean through torrential rain, freezing night temperatures and numerous sandstorms, I might as well have had my feet up in front of a blazing fire watching telly!” says Lord Brockett. “That’s how well the multi-layered FXRG jacket insulates and protects. Small details such as pocket angles and rubberised large zip handles are the icing on the cake. Great product!"

The textile jacket is available in small-5XL and tall sizes and as with the other products in the FXRG range, it benefits from a five-year warranty, which reinforces Harley-Davidson’s confidence in the product’s performance capabilities. In further demonstration of its dependability, the FXRG Textile Jacket was also selected by participants of Newcastle Harley-Davidson’s highly ambitious Ride Aid – a 48-hour charity ride across the UK from Newcastle to Lands End via John O’Groats.

The Harley-Davidson male and female FXRG ranges include leathers, textiles, trousers and gloves and are available from all UK and Ireland Harley-Davidson dealerships.
