Kids sizes launched on popular textile items from British motorcycle clothing firm

Spada, the British designed motorcycle apparel brand, has released a range of children’s sizes for two of its most popular textile garments; the Lunar jacket and Duo Tech trousers.

The all-season ‘Junior’ range offers peace of mind to parents who want their children to enjoy motorcycling with riding kit designed specifically to fit them – keeping them warm, dry and secure.  With a combined price of less than £100, both the Lunar Junior jacket and Duo Tech Junior trousers are only available in black with highly visible fluorescent detailing, in age sizes 4-6, 8-10 or 12-14.

The Lunar jacket (£54.95) is a 100% waterproof, all season jacket with CE armour fitted at the elbows and shoulder. Constructed with a polyester Kordura outer shell, the full-length jacket features a storm flap over the main zip and high and soft collar to help keep the elements out.

For when the weather gets warmer, the thermal lining can be removed and cool air passed through by opening four zipped vents on the front and with two rear exhaust vents of the jacket. The Spada Lunar jacket also features adjustment to create a ‘tailored’ fit and ensure maximum warmth by way of two Velcro straps on each arm and across the waist.

The Duo Tech trousers (£42.95) are 100% waterproof and breathable with the option of easily removing the quilted thermal lining.

Made from heavy duty Maxtex Nylon, the trouser boasts CE approved armour in the knees and a doubly layered seat for greater protection and wear resistance. Two outer zipped pockets are easily accessible and, using its long or short zips, the Duo Tech trousers can attach to a jacket easily for a more secure fit and prevent drafts.

Spada Marketing Manager, Mark Ingleby, explains the move: ‘Obviously we want everybody to enjoy the benefits and fun of motorcycling at Spada and seeing kids on the back of bikes with ill-fitting and inappropriate clothing flapping in the wind can be concerning as a parent. With these competitively priced Junior items, we’re confident that more riders will want to take their children out for a ride safe in the knowledge they’re properly equipped.’

In autumn 2010, the combination of the Lunar jacket and Duo Tech trousers were thoroughly tested by the Red Arrows pilots who, in just four days, successfully rode the entire length of the UK in all manner of conditions to raise money for a host of charities.

Josh, in his new work suit...

We recently had a great day with Josh Caygill up at his family’s VW commercial Van Centre near leeds.

Josh, along with other BSB guys Jimmy Hill, AJ Venter and Stuart Easton will be wearing and no doubt fully testing our top line Predator Race suit for the 2011 season ahead.

Needless to say we’re excited about working with these guys to get the best feedback on the suits in order to continually improve the products that we make for bikers of all riding styles.

The day went well with Josh the perfect professional whilst being photographed – even with the abuse and all-round background tomfoolery from the guys in the garage – in some of our cracking new 2011 products, including the Tornado and Energy style jackets as well as the Target Parka. Good work fella!

We got some really good pics that we will be using in upcoming advertising and promotional stuff and thanks to Josh and his family for their hospitality, and of course the plentiful cups of strong tea and biscuits.

New textile items from British clothing firm used by Red Arrows

Red Arrows wearing Lunar jacket, Duo Tech trousers

Spada, the British designed motorcycle apparel brand, has released a new waterproof textile jacket and trousers for the Autumn season which will be thoroughly tested by the Red Arrows on an upcoming 1000 mile charity ride across the length of the UK.

With performance punching way above its price, the Lunar jacket is a 100% waterproof, all season jacket with CE armour fitted at the elbows and shoulder. Constructed with a polyester Kordura outer shell, the full-length jacket features a storm flap over the main zip and high and soft collar to help keep the elements out.

For when the weather hots up, the thermal lining can be removed and cool air passed through by opening four zipped vents on the front and with two rear exhaust vents of the jacket. The Spada Lunar jacket also features adjustment to create a ‘tailored’ fit and ensure maximum warmth by way of two Velcro straps on each arm and across the waist.

The Lunar jacket also features two large outer pockets and two internal ones and can be zipped securely to any Spada leather or textile trousers.

The Duo Tech trousers (£89.99) are 100% waterproof and breathable with the option of easily removing the quilted thermal lining.

Made from heavy duty Maxtex Nylon, the trouser boasts CE approved armour in the knees and a doubly layered seat for greater protection and wear resistance. Two outer zipped pockets are easily accessible and, using its long or short zips, the Duo Tech trousers can attach to a jacket easily for a more secure fit and prevent drafts.

Both the Lunar jacket and Duo Tech trousers are available in Blue or Red in sizes S-XXXL with the all Black option going up to size XXXXL.

On September 30, pilots from the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, and four of the Fighter Pilots from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, will have just four days to cover the entire length of mainland UK as part of a money-raising scooter ride for charity.

All fourteen pilots will be dressed in Spada’s new black and red Lunar jacket and Duo Tech trousers along with the sports touring ST1 boots (£89.99) and popular Contrast gloves (£34.99).

Flight Lieutenant and Red 6, Mike Ling, commented on the Spada kit: “Riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats during autumn, we’ll inevitably come across adverse weather conditions. The pilots were looking to find riding kit that would not just protect us and be all-day comfortable, but also keep us warm and dry. The team has already spent a day in the Spada clothing riding in the rain and we’re already suitably impressed.”

We spent the day up at RAF Scampton with the Red Arrows (our personal boyhood dreams now fulfilled!) this week to help launch their charity Land’s End to John O’Groats trek on Vespas and provide them with some of our lovely new kit to keep them dry and warm.

Ten Red Arrows and four Battle of Britain Memorial Flight pilots will ride 1000 miles in four days from Lands End to John O’Groats on scooters to raise money for charity.

All fourteen riders will be using our Spada motorcycle clothing throughout the tour, including the Lunar jacket, Duo Tech trousers, ST1 Boots and Contrast gloves.

After months down in the design bunker, overdosing on chocolate hob nobs and tea with milk and three sugars (the only way that any English gent should have it served) we’ve finally surfaced with our new web site, an extra four inches round the waist, an allergy to direct sunlight and, not forgetting, the accompanying brochure.

So, what does everyone think of the new site?

We’d love to hear any feedback that you guys have so good or bad please post us your comments.
