Welcome to December and news on the latest batch of fresh bike kit arrivals at Sportsbikeshop…

Rev’it Afterburn H2O textile jacket

This jacket from Rev’it is perfect for those who want to keep riding in poor conditions, but don’t want to sacrifice style.

The Afterburn features a waterproof Hydratex G-liner membrane to keep you dry, and there’s also a removable thermal liner to keep out the chill. Forearm vents help keep the temperature down in warmer weather.

The jacket is constructed from high-density softshell, which ensures plenty of comfort and flexibility both on and off the bike.

The jacket features Rev’it’s Seesmart armour in the shoulders and elbows, which is specifically designed for the flexibility demanded by city riding. There’s also a pocket for an optional back protector.

The Afterburn H2O textile jacket is available in sizes S-3XL at a launch RRP of £219.99.

ARMR Moto Raiden leather gloves

These gloves are great for anyone looking for a pair of summer sports gloves on a budget.

They feature a full leather construction with pre-curved fingers for enhanced comfort on longer rides. There are also stretch panels on the fingers, thumbs and back of the hand.

In terms of protection the Moto Raiden feature vented plastic armour on the wrist, knuckles and fingers, as well as a palm slider.

The ARMR Moto Raiden gloves launch with an RRP of £49.99, and are available in sizes M-2XL.

Merlin Barton 2 silk wax textile jacket

If you want a classic silk wax cotton jacket with all the benefits of a modern jacket then you should take a look at the Merlin Barton 2.

The outer is constructed from Halley Stevensons 12oz silk wax cotton, while the bulk of the waterproofing is taken care of by a Reissa Active breathable membrane. Merlin has also included a 150g removable thermal lining to keep out the chill.

Rev’it Kryptonite 2 Gore-Tex gloves

The Rev’it Kryptonite 2 gloves are designed for urban riders who want protection from the elements all year round.

A goatskin palm provides flexibility and protection, while the back of the gloves are constructed from a twill stretch textile.

A laminated Gore-Tex membrane keeps out the rain while keeping the gloves breathable. The cold is kept at bay thanks to a 3M Thinsulate tri-fleece liner. A knitted cuff helps keep out wind chill and sets these apart from other short gloves.

When it comes to impact protection the gloves feature a hard knuckle insert and finger protection inserts.

The Rev’it Kryptonite 2 gloves are available in sizes S-3XL, for a launch RRP of £119.99.

Rev’it Cassini H2O gloves

The Cassini H2O are short gloves designed for use in all conditions, thanks to a 3M Thinsulate fleece lining and a breathable waterproof Hydratex Z-liner.

The gloves are made from stretch twill textile, while a goatskin leather palm gives the gloves a soft and supple feel on the controls.

There’s hard plastic protection on the knuckles as well as temperfoam sliders on the palms and thumbs.

The Cassini H2O’s fingertips on the thumbs and first two fingers allow you to operate a touchscreen without having to remove the gloves.

The Rev’it Cassini H2O gloves are available at a launch RRP of £74.99 in sizes S-3XL.
