A combination of 600D ripstop textile, 750D hard mesh and 300D stretch mesh in key flex zones, this jacket is smartly designed to protect you where it matters most and save you unnecessary bulk. It also has a removable liner that’s 100% waterproof, and comes standard with SAS-TEC CE II armor in the shoulders and elbows (you can add a back protector here as well).

A multi-fabric shell with mesh panels to provide cooling throughout the front, back, and underarms make this jacket tough but cool—just like you. It also packs Alpinestars Bio Air CE Level II armor in the elbows and shoulders, along with pockets to accommodate optional chest and back protectors if you want ’em. Finally, a removable and breathable Drystar liner gives you a little extra temperature control. Say goodbye to having your rides ruined by the weather.
Regular Price: $119.99, Sale Price: $99.99 (17% Off)
Made from ultra-flow mesh with 600D panels in key impact zones (like your knees and butt), these pants also have an airflow mesh inner lining and CE-approved knee armor. There are pockets for hip armor as well, and reflective details to keep you safe when riding in low-light conditions.
Regular Price: $209.99, Sale Price: $169.99 (19% Off)
Pants that offer this much protection shouldn’t be allowed to feel this light and convenient—but you’ve got to hand it to REAX for finding a way. 980D ballistic poly reinforcements in the knees and seat keep you ready to hit the road (literally) if the worst should happen, and 600D poly throughout the rest of the garment helps them stay together in a slide (along with your skin). On top of that, stretch inserts in the knees and thighs keep you highly mobile, and a moisture-wicking stretch mesh lining helps you deal with rain—not to mention sweat. Bring it, summer.
