Adventure Bike Magazine has awarded the Spada Dakar Jacket an 8/10 score in its independent touring jacket review feature, which rigorously tested 12 of the leading jackets on the market.

The Spada Dakar outscored the majority of the jackets tested, many of which cost up to twice as much. In fact the Dakar tied with the Rukka Kalahari on quality, comfort and style, yet ithe Rukka costs £640.05 more!

These results reinforce the view that high-quality, stylish motorcycle clothing can be made for a realistic price for cost conscious consumers at a time when they are being careful with their buying decisions.

Spada Dakar  8/10. £109.95.
