March 8, 2013 – Firstgear motorcycle apparel has been around in one form or another for more than 20 years. Owned by motorcycle products distributor Tucker Rocky, Firstgear is recognized by American motorcyclists as a purveyor of high-quality, innovative products.
Motorcycle jackets, pants and gloves are the primary product lines and it’s been some time since boots were sold under the Firstgear brand but they’re back for 2013 with three basic lines: the Kathmandu adventure-touring boot; the Mesh Hi and Mesh Lo and the Kili High and Kili Lo. The Kathmandu and Kili boots are claimed waterproof.
With aggressive pricing and good looks, the new Firstgear boots should sell like brats at Oktoberfest.
