New leather jackets from Furygan

Posted on


French manufacturer Furygan has created a new range of leather jackets designed with racing in mind. The Race, Akira, Block and Brutale Evo are new-for-2013, combining Furygan’s renowned style and quality with its on-track expertise developed with pro racers.

Although they differ in style, the four jackets do have some similarities, for example each one is crafted from CE homologated 1.4mm waterproofed leather. Areas exposed to abrasion in a crash situation are reinforced with triple stitching to avoid tearing and each jacket features D3O T5 Pro Evo level 2 armour in the elbow and shoulders and a back protector (1621-2 level 1 central back type), offering full protection without restricting comfort and movement. The back protector pocket in each can also accommodate a level 2 full back protector as an added extra.

Each jacket features Furygan’s Skin Protect lining and a thermal padded lining that includes aluminum inserts on the chest for maximum protection against the cold. There are two connecting zips (one short and one full) mounted on an elastic belt, adjusters on the waist and four pockets – two inside and two outside. All four jackets also carry the Ergomax label, ensuring maximum comfort and a perfect fit, with the Race carrying the Ergomax Racing label.

Combining all Furygan’s sports jacket expertise and developed and tested by pro-riders, the top-of-the-range Race jacket, made from full grained leather, is a must-have for any serious sports bike rider. It incorporates removable foam inserts on the chest to protect from fuel tank shocks and aids rider posture, as well as a racing hump for aerodynamics. New integral racing sleeves – equipped with bi-stretch Cordura and constructed with a triple stitching technique – offer unparalleled comfort and mobility. This sports jacket also has external protection shells on the shoulders and elbows. The Race is available in black-white-silver, black-white-red and black-silver-fluorescent yellow, sizes S-3XL with an RRP of £439.99.

Made from Ago plain matt leather, the Akira was the first jacket of the new generation to include external protection shells on the elbows and shoulders. The ergonomic design of the jacket includes the Furygan AFS system - vents with water repellent zips on the chest and back that can be opened to create an airflow through the vest. Leather stretch behind the shoulders and Cordura stretch on the elbows, as well as neoprene inserts on the collar and wrists ensure maximum comfort. The Akira is available in black-white and white-black, sizes S-3XL with an RRP of £379.99.

The Block, made from soft and extremely resilient Ago leather, is classed as a top racing leather jacket. With the inclusion of a racing hump, racing sleeves with bi-stretch Cordura inside the arms, neoprene inserts on the collar and wrists and leather stretch behind the shoulders and elbows, the high-end ergonomics make for a comfortable sports fit. This jacket also includes external protection shells with aluminum inserts for elbows and shoulders. The Block is available in black-chrome, sizes S-3XL with an RRP of £379.99.

The Brutale Evo is made from full grained leather and combines quality leather construction with classic Furygan styling. It incorporates racing sleeves with bi-stretch Cordura stretch inside the arms for a comfortable fit as well as leather stretch behind the shoulders and the elbows. Neoprene inserts on the collar and wrists are also included. The Brutale Evo is available in black-white, sizes S-3XL with an RRP of £369.99.
