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.
