May’s come and gone, so now's the best time to refresh your bike gear for the summer!
To help, we’ve selected six of our favourite additions to our range of motorcycle helmets, clothing and accessories, including a new version of the best-selling Kriega US range, Alpinestar’s most comfortable, high-spec racing glove yet, and a new HJC graphic based on everybody’s favourite comic-book mutant.
Kriega Cordura Drypacks From £65
If you have a tour planned this summer, you’re going to want to invest in some serious luggage to protect your valuables from harm: luckily Kriega offers the best in the business. The brand has revamped their best-selling US drypacks range to incorporate a new Cordura fabric body, enhancing the bag's durability and abrasion resistance while providing guaranteed all-weather protection - an absolute GODSEND when it comes to traversing the open road.
Being completely universal to fit any bike with easy-to-fit quick-release hooks and secure web loops, the Kriega Cordura US Drypacks come in a range of different storage sizes from 5 litres to 30 (US5, US10, US20 and US30), with the added benefit of being able to combine with your Kriega Rucksack or another Cordura drypack for additional storage. You can even purchase multiple drypacks as one item to save you the trouble.

Schuberth C4 Pro From £529.99
Announced earlier in the year, the brand new C4 Pros are now available for purchase. Lightweight in design with high-performance aerodynamics and a plush interior: the new version of the C4 is a fantastic flip-front for modern touring.
So what have Schuberth changed from the original C4? Well firstly the Pro has a rounder shape than it's predecessor, offering the same aerodynamics and impact-absorbing fibreglass outer shell, but its lighter on your head. Schuberth has also added a new Öko-Tex 100 certified lining to its interior, giving a plush feel on your face with quick drying and antibacterial properties.
Amongst other changes including a Pinlock-branded anti-fog insert that provides a wider field of vision and a new placement for comms systems to better fit to the shell's structure; the C4 Pro also has a revised visor-release mechanism that can be operated by gloves, and more importantly, prevents air from being let in (as it did the original C4), giving you a more quiet journey.
Rukka Markham Leather Jacket £499.99
Usually known for their fantastic textile waterproofs, Rukka have now tried their hand at leather. The Rukka Markham is a timeless style jacket made from full-grain cowhide leather perfect for urban riding.
Underneath you can find D30 armour fitted at the elbows and shoulders, as well as a pocket for a D30 or Forcefield Back protector should you own one. As for comfort, the Markham has a temperature-regulating Outlast lining to keep you comfortable in the heat, flexible accordion panels at the shoulders for movement and style, as well as quality YKK zips along the hems and zip/popper closures at the wrists for a customised fit.
Basically, if you're after a cafe-racer style jacket that will do you no wrong this summer, add the Rukka Markham to your wardrobe.
