Richa Element Jacket - Urban/Commuter Motorcycle Jacket

The Richa Element jacket sits at the more casual end of the jacket spectrum, best suited for city/urban riding, the daily commute or for when you want a jacket which will serve you as well off the bike as on it. The beauty of the Richa Element jacket is in its removable thermal inner lining, which can be worn as a thermal jacket in its own right, when you're off the bike. This inner lining is windproof, so it'll keep you warm when you open up the throttle a bit. The outer jacket has a fixed waterproof membrane, so you'll stay dry if you're caught in the rain. It's designed more for rain showers rather than hours of pouring rain, since it's rated to 5000mm waterproofing. If you need something for the wet season, look at a waterproof touring jacket instead.

The Richa Element jacket is supplied complete with D3O protective armour to the back, shoulders and elbows, so it represents excellent value for money. D3O is the best protective armour around, especially for urban jackets like this, because it's very flexible when not under stress, so the jacket remains comfortable. Gone are the days when you can't move for rigid armour. Once under the force of an impact, however, D3O protectors go completely stiff, to absorb the energy caused by the impact. Then, after impact, they return to their flexible state. We don't know how they do it, just that they do! Not only does it look cool, but the Richa Element is practical too. It has a total of four pockets, two on the chest and two on sides, cuff and upper arm adjustable straps to get the perfect fit, an elastic waist adjuster, plus neoprene inserts in the collar and cuffs for added comfort.

Completing the features of the Element jacket is a removable hood. There's a pocket to store the hood when you're riding hoodless, but if the weather turns against you whilst you're off the bike, you can zip on the hood to keep yourself dry. Oh, and finally, to make you more visible to car drivers at night, there are reflective panels on the front, shoulders and back for extra visibility in car headlights. Don't worry, they're not disgusting bright panels in daylight, just subtle strips which show up at night, in the lights. Check out the 'More Pictures' tab to see what we mean. So all in all, this is a really well equipped and practical jacket at a very competitive price. ForMotorbikes sells the Richa Element jacket with Free UK delivery, plus worldwide shipping.
