Jackets are rated by MotoCAP after being subjected to a range of tests to measure abrasion durability, impact resistance and comfort.
Learn about the tests
Primary Material Textile
This garment is fitted with impact protectors for the elbows and shoulders. A pocket is provided for an aftermarket back protector.
There are zipped vents in the chest and back to allow controlled airflow movement through the garment. The breathability rating is based on tests of the garment's materials when all vents are closed. The breathability of this product may be better when the vents can be opened. Breathability was measured without the removable thermal liner installed.
