The summer holidays are here, and there's no better excuse to take the bike out. Here's the latest bike gear for August 2019.
We've got a fantastic line-up of gear straight from the biggest brands in motorcycling, from a new mesh jacket from Rukka, Merlin's latest range of wax cotton luggage, and a fantastic new HJC graphic inspired by a Marvel Avenger...
Arai Debut - Various Graphics £379.99
Originally released in March this year, the Arai Debut was a massive hit with many commuting and touring riders - part in thanks to its fantastic build, but even more so it's sub-£300 price tag that meant you can own a recognisable, top brand helmet without shelling your entire savings out on it!
To keep the line fresh, Arai have just come out with a new range of snazzy graphics and colours - though £80 more expensive than the base model, these graphics really excite and pop when zooming down a highway.
A reliable entry-level helmet by one of the biggest names in motorcycling, the Arai debut is a simply fantastic helmet. With a shock-absorbing fibreglass shell that sits comfortably on your head (a medium weighs around 1.5kg), the full-face has two, two-position closed vents at the top and chin that ventilate air to keep you cool, while a comfort interior liner contours to your face for all-day comfort.
All that and an innovative visor-locking mechanism, SAI Max Vision visor and replaceable cheek pads - what's not to love about a mid-priced, premium brand helmet?

Rukka Forsair Pro Mesh Jacket £399.99
If you're planning on getting a motorcycle jacket for the summer, you better make it mesh. The perfect solution for riding in the hottest summer months, a mesh jacket can keep you as cool as wearing just a T-shirt, while offering as much protection as a thick bike jacket.
While we stock a plethora of mesh jackets from a number of brands, Rukka are the latest to step in the ring with their Forsair Pro mesh jacket, built from abrasion-resistant Cordura AFT and AFT+ textile that not only protects but allows maximum airflow on the road to keep you fresh. Featuring twin-layered Cordura and D30 protectors at the elbows and shoulders for protection at critical points of your upper body, this Rukka jacket provides essential protection on the road without feeling heavy and bulky, in thanks to the featherweight design of the jacket and the lightness of the D30 armour. There are additional pockets for a chest or back protector should you want further body protection, but you'll need to purchase those separately.
Complete with a long 360-degree zip that can connect to trousers (we heavily recommend the matching Rukka Forsair Pro Mesh Trousers here) as well as velcro fastening at the hem and two pockets on the front, you're guaranteed a comfortable ride this summer with this Rukka mesh jacket.

HJC RPHA 11 Captain America £499.99
