Here are the latest drops from the biggest brands in Motorcycling for October!
The leaves have fallen, the days are getting colder and pumpkins have started appearing in shops: yep its definitely October! With the changing of seasons, it might be time to put away the mesh jacket for a year and get yourself some warmer motorcycle gear. So what's available? Here are the best new arrivals for October 2019.
Keis G601 Premium Heated Gloves | £199.99
During those winter rides, your hands will bear most of the cold weather's brunt. As they are positioned furthest away from your body, your hands are at the most risk of stiffing while you're steering and need to be optimally protected.
A trusted brand for providing heated motorcycle clothing, more and more motorcyclists are throwing away their cotton inner gloves and turning towards Keis for a solution. For years, the brand has provided heating solutions for gloves, as well as jackets and vests, and are constantly improving upon their products to better protect from the perils of Autumn/Winter riding.
Their latest iteration of heated motorcycling gloves are the G601s, a heavy-duty leather glove designed to provide the very best thermal insulation and protection in one package. Fitted with 3M Thinsulate and a Hipora waterproof membrane, the gloves are resistant to wind and water, while flexible knuckle armour and a new Scaphoid guard at the palm provide optimal protection for your hand.
Designed for everyday commuting and long-distance touring, the Keis G601 gloves utilise the industry's latest innovations in heating technology and can be powered either by your bike's battery (12V minimum), an optional battery pack or one of Keis' own battery that can fit seamlessly into the cuff. This heating can be controlled via a button conveniently placed at the back of the wrist, allowing you to easily operate while riding.
Should you not already own a Keis glove, or simply need an upgrade on a previous model, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better-heated option anywhere else.
You can purchase the Keis G601 Heated gloves online with Free Delivery, and you can purchase the Keis batteries separately here.
Knox Richmond MKII Jeans | £149.99
At first glance, Knox's second iteration of their best-selling Richmond jeans doesn't appear too different from the original. Both jeans are made from 10oz abrasion-resistant Cordura denim and lined with 100% DuPont Kevlar fibre, offering CE Level AA certified protection usually reserved for bulkier touring trousers. The Richmond jeans are slim-fit, with 2% elastane for a comfortable stretch and tapered at the leg for a refined look that isn't too skinny. So far, Knox hasn't strayed far from the formula.
Where the MKII improves on the original is its armour, adopting Knox's patented Micro-Lock armour at the knees and hips. This CE approved level 1 armour is flexible and comfortable against your body, but harden on impact, absorbing the impact energy that would otherwise cause serious damage.
This slimline, level 1 CE approved armour fits seamlessly into invisible, convenient pockets on the outer layer of the jeans, protecting vulnerable points of your lower body from impact. With these pockets, the armour can be removed and fitted in seconds, thanks to the Richmond MKII's YKK zips that secure the protectors in place, allowing you to wear the jeans off the bike without looking like a cowboy.
Overall, the Knox Richmond MKII jeans are a slim-fitting motorcycle trouser built with style, protection and comfort at its forefront, and is a prime example of Knox's expertise in protective motorcycle gear.
The Knox Richmond MKII jeans are available today in either Black or Blue and in a series of waist sizes and leg lengths for a perfect fit.
Dainese Antartica Gore-Tex Jacket | £1299.95
The Antartica is Dainese's top-spec Gore-Tex jacket, packed with a plethora of features that live up the high price tag. As the name suggests, the Dainese Antartica is built to withstand the coldest temperatures and stormiest rides. The jacket's waterproofing is absolute and shrugs off water like its nothing, thanks to its laminated Gore-Tex waterproof membrane 45.000mm.
Underneath this shell, the jacket has a removable, inner goose-down jacket designed to withstand the coldest extreme climates. This inner jacket offers such incredible thermal insulation that it can you keep you comfortable in temperatures down to -25C! In tandem, the moisture-wicking Gore-Tex layers allow the jacket to breathe and prevent sweat build-up in these colder climates, while two zipped chest vents can be opened to provide maximum ventilation directly to your body on warmer journeys.
This quality doesn't let up in the protection department either, as the Antartica is equipped with elbow and shoulder protection, AND a Pro-Armour level 2 back protector that covers the critical parts of the upper body. This is in combination with a reinforced outer layer consisting of highly abrasion-resistant Nylon 6.6 as well as a newly patented Trixior D-Tec fabric at the highest impact areas, that offers the highest standard of abrasion protection.
I could go on longer, mentioning the multitude of pockets that can be found throughout the jacket, a removable thermal collar and storm guard collar, and a fastening system to the accompanying Dainese Antartica trousers - but I'm sure I've already sold you.
Available in Black/Ebony or Light Grey/Black, you can buy online today for delivery TOMORROW (Black/Ebony selected sizes only) with 2 years warranty and Club Infinity reward points. You can also get a pair of matching trousers here.

The Levo is new flip-front helmet developed by Caberg, packed with exciting, innovative features that make it the perfect touring lid. With a shell made of composite fibre, the helmet is P/J dual homologated to provide the same safety standards whether you ride with the chin guard down or up.
The ventilation system provides an even distribution of cool air through a system of two front vents, a system of interior channels make the airflow, and two rear extractors vent hot air out the back.
What makes this helmet special is the panoramic ultra-wide visor, which allows you the best field of vision equal to 82° at the front. This lens is a Max Vision Pinlock that prevents fog build-up and an integrated sunvisor can be easily operated by gloves at the side. The removable interior liner is hypoallergenic and breathable to provide maximum freshness, and the comfortable cheek pads can accommodate glasses or a communication system.
Overall the Caberg Levo is an innovation and has to be considered if you're after a flip-front by a proven brand.
