ARMR ADDS LEATHER RANGE TO ITS 2014 COLLECTION
April 7 2014.


Tri-motive, the Swansea-based distributor of ARMR motorcycle clothing, has introduced a range of quality leather clothing for the 2014 season with a number of new items in the collection. It comprises one-piece suits, jackets and jeans.


ARMR doesn't believe in the scatter-gun approach where as many styles and colours as possible are offered in the hope that something will appeal, instead it has designed and produced a no-gimmicks, functional range designed for the discerning motorcyclist.

The Harada one-piece suits come in either "R" or "C" styles. R is a race-cut, ventilated, premium-grade cowhide suit with leather stretch panels, aero hump and external aluminium shoulder and elbow sliders to help eliminate "grip and flip" should the worst happen. Constructed from 1.2mm to 1.4mm-thick hide, the arms and legs are pre-curved and triple lock seam (TLS) technology is used throughout as are robust YKK zips. Internally there's a breathable polymesh lining and CE protectors at the shoulders and elbows with provision for CE back protector A9116 and Velcro knee-slider panels. Available in black with white, red and blue detailing or white with black, blue and red detailing in sizes 36-48 at a very affordable £449.99 SRP.

New for this season is The Harada C. This is the comfort-fit, everything-but-the-hump, version of the race suit with a little more room to move for £399.99 SRP. Sizes are a generous, 38-50 and there's a choice of traditional black or black with white detailing.

The new season's jacket range kicks in at £189.99 SRP for the Hiro black leather jacket. Classic styling with a modern twist, this jacket is made from premium grade cowhide and comes with a detachable thermal liner and zipped vents. Its Neoprene cuffs and collar help keep the wind out. Bringing the Hiro bang up to date is the inclusion of mobile phone pockets and built-in MP3 and headphone cable routing. Hiro's biking credentials are further endorsed by CE protectors at elbows and shoulders, provision for an A9116 CE back protector and triple lock seam (TLS) technology. A 360-degree link zip is provided and the Hiro is available in sizes 38-50.

Next up is the Katana jacket at £199.00 SRP. With a virtually identical specification to the Hiro, apart from the zipped vents, the Katana has coloured panels with AMAR logos on the sleeves and is offered in black/white, black/red and black/blue. The 360-degree zip links the matching Katana leather jean (£149.99 SRP). This is constructed in cowhide with stretch panels and also uses TLS technology. It features a polyester mesh lining, two front pockets, calf expansion panels and CE knee protectors.

At the top of the jacket range comes the Raiden at £219.99 SRP. A sport-cut jacket, Raiden features ventilated front and upper-arm panels, pre-curved arms, aluminium shoulder sliders, TLS technology, stretch panels and Neoprene neck and cuff closures. Internally you've got CE protectors in shoulders and elbows and provision for an A9116 back protector, a removable thermal liner, two pockets and a 360-degree connecting zip. Colours are black/blue/white, black/red/white and all black.

For £159.99 SRP the matching Raiden leather jean makes this a two-piece suit for fun days and trackdays. Like the jacket, this jean combines the features of the Katana jean and then adds knee sliders. In sizes 30-40, the Raiden jeans are available in black.

Completing the line-up is Kenji, a western-style, five-pocket jean that can team with any jacket in the range. A polyester mesh lining is included as standard and customers can chose to add knee and thigh protectors to the pockets provided. At £129.99 SRP it's an impulse buy.
