Casually brilliant clothing

Motorcycle clothing has taken a turn in recent years. In the days of yesteryear, you'd only be able to get protective gear that would make you look like a power ranger, or that made you look as though you’d gotten dressed blind in a fancy dress closet, nowadays there are tonnes of stylish options available that offer not only fantastic protection, but that also look great off the bike too.

If you’re struggling for some casually-dressed inspiration, you could always drop by the showroom to see what we’ve got. Like this outfit for example…

Casually-styled protective clothing at Bridge Motorcycles

Richa Café jacket

This jacket is a classically-styled number that has a simple design, but still offers maximum protection. Its full-grain leather construction protects from abrasion and the CE approved D3O armour in the shoulders, elbows and back offer fantastic impact protection.

Bull-it Stealth jeans

These jeans are a real mystery, they feel and look exactly like regular denim jeans, but perform to CE level 2 standards, with just a single layer construction. Unlike most protective jeans, the Stealth use a 13oz Covec yarn woven into the fabric itself. It’s both abrasion and heat-resistant too, completely eliminating the need for additional inner layers. The included hip and knee armour conforms to the top CE level 2 standard and is also extremely thin so you won’t notice it off the bike.

Alpinestars Jam waterproof shoe

These shoes are deceptive, from the outside they look like regular trainers, but underneath they sport some real protective tech that’ll help in the worst case scenario. The Drystar membrane will keep your feet dry on that inevitable ride when you get caught out by the rain, and protection comes from dual density ankle protectors and internal toe box and heel counter reinforcement. They’re also super-comfortable too, thanks to the padded lining. The rubber compound cup sole also make them great for walking in too, making them practical for everyday use between rides.

Furygan James D3O leather gloves

Great looking with fantastic protective properties, the James gloves combine both qualities to give a fantastic glove that you can depend on, and look good in too. The outer construction is made from hard-wearing goatskin leather and the glove also features D30 armour to protect the metacarpals and knuckles and shock-absorbing foam in the palm area too.

Nolan X-201 Fresno helmet

The Fresno is a brilliant lid that combines stylish good looks with great protective qualities. And let’s face it, on a café racer/brat/bobber, or whatever your retro weapon of choice, the open-faced helmet is the helmet of choice for many. For that casual-cool look on the bike, you won’t go far wrong with this lid.
