It’s no secret that the world of motorcycling is very male dominated, but more and more of us ladies’ are getting on our bikes and taking to the track and the road and just like the men, we women would like to look good on the bike too!
Many ladies’ motorcycle clothes can often appear quite bulky and unflattering, but is this ok, is it just something that we have to accept? I’m not saying I want to wear something girly and extremely fitted on the bike but I’d like to retain my feminine shape whilst hurtling around and I’d like to avoid looking like the michelin man when I step off my bike too.
This really got me thinking, and I really want to find out exactly what women want, do all women want pink on their clothes and are we happy with having the waists slightly cut in on a men’s style jacket with no real thought to women’s shapes.
The Spada womens’ range currently comprises of 3 categories and we want to know whether you like fitted jackets, what colours you would like to see in the range, what sizes you would like to see and what makes you choose a particular piece of clothing.
LADIES ADVENTURE STYLE JACKETS
Currently Spada have the Anna jacket and the Lula Jacket. These jackets are more suited towards adventure riding but are perfect for everyday use. They have removable thermal lining so they’re perfect all year round, have an adjustable waist so the jackets can fit perfectly to women’s shapes, and come in a variety of colours and the bonus is that they aren’t just cut versions of men’s jackets in the range. They of course have all the safety features needed such as armour, reflective panels, ventilation and are completely waterproof.
LADIES LEATHER JACKETS
Ready for the summer, Spada have their ladies leather jacket range from the cruiser jacket to the road and vibe. Each jacket is cut to suit a feminine shape and are slightly shorter to ensure that they go well with leather trousers or kevlar riding jeans. These jackets are designed to look good both on and off the bike. Of course as well as fashion they also have function, all having zips to attach trousers and CE approved armour in the elbows, back and shoulders.
Another jacket currently in the Spada range is the very popular Hartbury jacket. This jacket has been tailor made for women and features nice touches such as an adjustable belt to give shape and a soft removable fur collar as well as having armour in the elbows, back and shoulders. We also have the Air pro jacket with an inner cooling system which earned it a Ride Kit Award which comes with a waterproof over jacket just in case. Last but not least the waterproof Planet ladies jacket which is perfect for everyday use.
