Triumph launches the next generation of Steve McQueen riding and casualwear

Steve McQueen 955 Race ZipMcQueen 955 Race Zip

The Autumn/Winter ‘11 season sees the release of the next generation of Triumph Steve McQueen products with the introduction of a new performance jacket and a range of casualwear.

Inspired by the movie star’s love of racing, the Steve McQueen Special Edition Jacket #2 combines a heritage race styling with modern day motorcycle riding technologies.

The jacket is constructed from a Bristex outer fabric that has been given a heavy wash for a worn effect. A vertical red, white and blue stripe detail is added to the jacket along with a tonal Steve McQueen signature to the upper sleeve. Inside the jacket is a Tri-Tex waterproof membrane and removable thermal lining. The lining also features a special print of Steve McQueen. Removable CE protectors are included to the shoulder and elbow.

The casualwear range draws inspiration from two motorcycle races that he pushed himself and his Triumph to the limits. The ISDT Hoodie and T-Shirt are influenced by his appearance at the International Six Days Trial, East Germany, 1964. The 100% cotton single jersey t-shirt and cotton-polyester hoodie features logo and patch detailing with an enzyme wash to pay homage to his most famous motorcycle race.

The 955 Race T-Shirt and Race Zip Thru are influenced by his participation in the 1962 Four Aces Moose Run, a national championship in Adelanto, California, where he achieved third place in the novice division. Both the long sleeve t-shirt and zip thru features a bold back print and logo detailing.

These products are now available to purchase from Triumph authorised dealers. Visit www.triumphmotorcycles.com for further information on the Autumn/Winter 11 collection.
