Spada has released a range of children's sizes for two of its most popular textile garments; the Lunar jacket and Duo Tech trousers.

The all-season Junior range offers peace of mind to parents who want their children to enjoy motorcycling with riding kit designed specifically to fit them - keeping them warm, dry and visible. At a combined cost of less than £100 ,the jacket and trousers represent Spada's continuing commitment to both quality and value.

Both the Lunar Junior jacket and Duo Tech Junior trousers are available in black with highly visible fluorescent detailing to ensure maximum visibility while on and off the bike.

The clothing is available in sizes covering a large range of ages; sizes 4-6, 8-10 or 12-14.

The Lunar jacket (£54.95) is a 100% waterproof, all-season jacket with CE armour fitted at the elbows and shoulder. Constructed with a polyester Kordura outer shell, the full-length jacket features a storm flap over the main zip and high and soft collar to help keep the elements out. For continued use in warmer weather, the thermal lining can be removed and cool air passed through by opening four zipped vents on the front and with two rear exhaust vents of the jacket. The jacket also features adjustment to create a 'tailored' fit and ensure maximum warmth by way of two Velcro straps on each arm and across the waist.

The Duo Tech trousers (£42.95) are100% waterproof and breathable with the option of easily removing the quilted thermal lining. Made from heavy duty Maxtex Nylon, the trousers boasts CE approved armour in the knees and a double layered seat for greater protection and wear resistance. Two outer zipped pockets are easily accessible and, using its long or short zips, the Duo Tech trousers can attach to a jacket easily for a more secure fit and also to prevent drafts - another feature both parent and child will appreciate.

Spada marketing manager, Mark Ingleby, explains the move: 'At Spada we want everybody to enjoy the benefits and fun of motorcycling and, as a parent, seeing kids on the back of bikes with ill-fitting and inappropriate clothing, can be concerning. With these competitively priced Junior items, we hope that more riders will want to take their children out for a ride, safe in the knowledge they're properly equipped.'
