Recently the guys at Fastbikes took a shine to the jacket and gave it a test. They loved it and this is what they had to say about it!

“Spada kit just gets better and better every year, this jacket being a prime example. Made from 1.2-1.4mm cowhide leather , the Corsa GP jacket from Spada has CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows, double and triple stitched critical seams, vented shoulder trim, mesh lining and a removable thermal lining. Simple styling will never go out of fashion, so invest in a snazzy little number here.”

The jacket is made from high quality leather and features CE approved armour as well as venting and a removable thermal lining so it’s a jacket that doesn’t need to go in the cupboard until next summer! Available in white and black with grey trim or just a plain black version it is perfect for that fast sport look or that more casual off the bike too.

Our ever-popular Intrepid Adventure lid gets another fantastic review – this time in Ride Magazine.

Spada Intrepid Adventure Helmet

Ride magazine are renowned for testing products to the extreme and very thoroughly to give their verdict on a huge range of products across the motorcycle industry. Ride recommendations and tests have become widely trusted because of the thorough nature of the tests. That’s why, here at Spada towers we were extremely excited to see the Spada intrepid featured in the test alongside a great score!

Spada Intrepid Adventure

“This is very good for the price. We found it to be a good fit, with an interior thats nice to touch.” At only £99.99 the Spada Intrepid Adventure is a steal. Scoring a respectable 41/60 in the Ride Magazine test, the scores were similar and the same as helmets that were three times the price. The intrepid scored a fantastic 8/10 for comfort on the road and scored highly for the visor, interior and quality of the helmet.

Thee Burnout jacket, which retails at just £129.99, is part of the newly refreshed 2015 range for Spada and provides comfort, reflective panels for visibility and delivers style as well as the safety aspects needed to give you peace of mind. The jacket features a 5 piece CE approved Impact defence system, removable thermal lining so it can be used in all weathers, soft lining around the neck, is waterproof and it has an internal air cooling system. It’s a jacket that delivers on all levels.

Recently we gained another exceptional review of our Spada products from Visor Down, who had high praises to sing about the Burnout jacket.

“The jacket is made of a tough ‘Maxdura’ protective outer shell, it has a fixed waterproof and breathable lining and a removable thermal lining, handy for the changeable weather. It means I can leave home with the thermal lining attached and remove it on warmer evenings.  There are also zip vents in the shoulders and back for better airflow on hot days.”

Visor Down went on to say:

“I am always concerned with being seen at night and wear a brightly coloured helmet and reflective bands. The Burnout comes with reflective panels built-in, so it’s a bit more peace of mind in the dark.”

June 30, 2015 — 0

When Spada create our clothing, style is key but our main priority is always safety and making sure the clothing stands up to the test when it comes to protecting our customers. Recently the Spada Corsa GP Jacket was put to the test, saving a Spada customer from serious injury. He wrote in to tell us just what he thought of the Spada Corsa GP Jacket.

Hello.

Yesterday I was knocked off my motorbike by a car. I flew over the handlebars and hit the road. I was wearing my Spada Corsa jacket, Corsa gloves and Nero leather Jeans. If it was not for my leathers I would have ended up in hospital.

I would just like to say thank you so much for producing such an
amazing set of gear that definitely saved me from serious injury.

Thank you again, I’m so grateful.

 

As you can see from the images, the crash was quite severe, damaging and cracking the side of the bike. The leathers took the impact of the fall and both Graham and the leathers took very minimal damage as a result.

The leather motorcycle jacket is made from full grain 1.2-1.4 mm leather and has CE approved armour in the shoulders and the elbows. For extra protection, the critical seams are double and triple stitched so that they hold up under pressure. The jacket has a removable thermal lining so it can be used all year round and has vented shoulder trims for extra comfort when you ride.

MoreBikes Wax Lyrical about Spada Hartbury Jacket

spada hartbury jacket

Spada Hartbury Jacket –  ladies wax motorcycle jacket | £149.95 | www.spadaclothing.co.uk / 01384 413841 | Tested by Carli Ann Smith

For years and years motorcycle riders have been wearing wax jackets – but often, they don’t have any protection – recently there has been a resurgence and a number of wax jackets have been launched – and many come with inbuilt CE approved armour so that riders can feel safer when riding and fashionable on and off the bike

For me, I like motorcycle kit that you can wear off the bike and it not look out of place in your average social setting too – something the brand new jacket from Spada offers.

I really like the Spada Hartbury ladies wax motorcycle jacket. To look at, I think it looks gorgeous – it’s exactly the kind of thing that I would wear when I wasn’t riding the bike and I like that the styling goes with so many different types of two-wheeled machines. The fixed tartan lining is a nice touch too.

spada-hartbury-liner

It’s made from dry waxed cotton but doesn’t feel slimy in your hand like some waxed products can. I really like the removable faux fur collar too – it gives it an added feeling of luxury and can easily be removed by unhooking the elastic loops from around the buttons.

spada-hartbury-fur-collar

I was slightly dubious about how this jacket would hold up in bad weather. The answer? Brilliantly. One particularly cold and wet 100-mile ride, I returned home dry and warm, thanks to the removable thermal liner. There’s a storm flap over the front zip and no vents to worry about the water trickling in.

spada-hartbury-stormflap

There’s removable CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows in the Spada Hartbury Jacket so you’re well protected – there is foam padding on the back in a pocket which could be replaced with a back protector – I wear a separate back protector to my jacket anyway.

The belt at the waist not only adds to the styling, it holds the jacket in place and prevents any chilly draughts getting up while riding. All the buckles have an antique brass effect which help give the jacket an aged feel.

Branding on the jacket is very subtle – just a small brown leather badge on the bottom left panel.

spada-hartbury-logo

I love the fit of the Hartbury – it was super comfortable from the first time I put it on and once on the bike the bottom flared out nicely so there was no bunching up around the tummy area.

The cuffs are adjustable too thanks to two press studs – I wear them on the loosest setting if I’m putting my gloves on underneath, if I want them tucked into my gloves then I fasten them on the tightest. There are four pockets on the front – two on the chest and the others on the hips – and two inside pockets.

spada-hartbury-cuff

Spada has two wax jackets for men too – the Staffy wax jacket, priced at £159.95 and the Union wax jacket, which doesn’t have a waist belt, which costs £149.95. Both are available in brown and black.
