GPX MOTO JERSEYS

For the second year, the construction of the Leatt 5.5 Ultraweld jersey remains the same. Why? Because Leatt believes it’s the best in the business. Keeping the minimum amount of material in contact with the body is key for comfort and ventilation, that’s why a 3D 4-way stretch material with welded overlock stitching is used. The material is so flexible you can use it with or without a body protector underneath. The 4.5 Lite jersey is more of a traditional fit and the 4.5 X-Flow is for the very hottest of conditions. Sizes S – 3XL. Prices are from $39.99 - $69.99 USD/€42.99 - €69.99 EURO/£34.99 - £59.99GBP.

GPX MOTO PANTS

The 5.5 Ultraweld pants are completely new from the ankle up for twenty/twenty. Leatt have listened to their customers and believe they have built the best pants to meet rider needs. New lightweight and breathable Ripstop stretch material makes up over 95% of the construction for the best comfort and feel. Now added is a Full Grain Leather inner knee panel to work alongside the proven I.K.S (Inner Knee Brace System) to give the best bike grip and improved wear resistance in those critical areas. A completely new rear yolk gripper system means you won’t be caught with your pants down!

The 4.5 pants also get a complete makeover for twenty/twenty – a combination of Ripstop stretch material and X-Flow mesh panels means these are by no means a typical entry level pair of pants, by some standards these are top level! A new rear yoke and reinforced seat area, along with Leather inner knee panels improve comfort, fit, bike feel and longevity. Sizes 28” – 44” XS – 5XL. Prices are from $129.99 - $189.99 USD/€129.00 - €199.00 EURO/£109.99 - £169.99GBP.

GPX MOTO HELMETS

The Leatt helmet range replicates the apparel line colourways for twenty/twenty but will also work well with other clothing brands should the customer choose. All models, from the cost effective 3.5 to the carbon 6.5, feature the same 360º Turbine Technology. This system uses small turbine-shaped discs made from an energy-absorbing material that can move in all directions, helping to reduce the risk of concussion by up to 30%, and rotational acceleration to the head and brain by up to 40%. All helmets are available in both ECE and DOT certification. Material construction for the 3.5 and 4.5 models is an injected Polymer, with the 5.5 being composite and the 6.5 full carbon fiber. Sizes XS – XXL. Prices are from $179.99 - $499.99 USD/€189.00 - €499.00 EURO/£135.00 - £359.99GBP.

GPX MOTO GLOVES

The Leatt gloves get upgrades on all models for twenty/twenty, from the entry level 1.5 to the top of the range 4.5. Constantly developing new materials, not just for soft goods but for impact materials too, the 4.5 and 3.5 still comprise of market leading NanoGrip palm material, yet now have softer impact protection, whilst maintaining CE Certification. This, along with upgraded Velcro closure means comfort, protection and optimized feel. The 2.5 now gets a Velcro closure strap, for those that want that tight grip around the wrist and is made of MicronGrip palm material alongside the 1.5 GripR. The very popular 2.5 Windblock for those cold windy days remains unchanged. With 23 colors, there is something for everyone! Sizes S – XXL. Prices start from $26.99 - $56.99USD/€29.99 - €59.99EURO/£24.99 - £49.99GBP.

RACE COVER AND VESTS

Being a global brand, Leatt understands the need for products that suit all markets. That’s why for twenty/twenty they have introduced 3 small but important consumer products that suit very different climates. The Race Cover Jacket is made from a lightweight, waterproof translucent material with large vent holes under the arms for those wet races and rides. When you need something lightweight and non-restrictive to wear for cold morning practice sessions, the Race Vest or Race Vest Lite could be just what you are looking for. The Race Vest is a soft-shell waterproof stretch material with 4 pockets and a specially tailored neck to ensure the collar doesn’t irritate. For something super lightweight with similar features made from 4-way stretch with just 1 pocket, the Race Vest Lite will be perfect. Sizes S – XXL. Race Cover Jacket $19.99USD/€19.99EURO/£19.99GBP. Race Vest $49.99USD/€49.99EURO/£42.99GBP. Race Vest Lite £49.99USD/€49.99EURO/£42.99GBP

With pants, jerseys and gloves starting at size XXS, there is sure to be a size to fit every junior or mini pilot. Super lightweight yet durable stretch materials are used in the pants and jerseys. The 3.5 gloves have CE Certified impact protection in the knuckle area for those flying rocks, posts or branches – some peace of mind for the parents.

SRC Moto Bike Charger

SRC MOTO Offers 12-Volt Accessory Line for Adventure Market

SRC MOTO, Innovations for Adventure is introducing a new product line from MOTO STUFF focusing on12-volt accessories for the adventure motorcycle market. Currently, models supported are the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Honda CRF250L, Honda CRF250L Rally, and the Honda CRF450L. Future versionsin the works are for the Honda CB500X and the Honda Africa Twin 1000L.

HONDA was nice enough to include a handy 10 amps switched accessory lead connector on the CRF250L & CRF250L Rally and CRF450L, however, they have yet to release an accessory lead to plug into it. MOTO STUFF picked up the ball and sourced the correct waterproof connectors and built them in 3 versions to suit most needs. All leads are 18" long and allow for safe routing from the lower-left radiator area following the factory harness routing to the Rally tower or left upper triple clamp bolt (depending onthe model) for a quick and secure mount.

There are multiple versions of these products available to suit individual needs:

DUAL USB Version - $68.00 USD: This is a high-quality dual USB charger with an OEM appearance featuring a water-resistant spring-loaded hinged cover. The dual USB charger outputs 2.1 amps for fast phone charging and features a blue led indicator to let you know it's on. Easily installed in just a couple of minutes, all you need is a 10mm wrench or socket to tighten the remove and install the bracket mounting bolt to the upper triple clamp.

12 Volt Socket Version - $68.00 USD: This is a high-quality 12-volt socket developed to offer an OEM appearance, with a water-resistant hinged spring-loaded cover. Easily installed in just a couple of minutes, all you need is a 10mm wrench or socket to tighten the remove and install the bracket mounting bolt to the upper triple clamp.

Plug & Play Version - $38.00 USD: For those “do-it-yourself” types, there is also a Plug & Play accessory lead version which is easy to install and includes 18" 2 circuit lead terminated with Posi Lock® connectors with abrasion sheath. Posi-Lock® Connectors have been put to the test worldwide since 1997 and require no crimping or soldering.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan does not come with any accessory switched circuits so we developed a full 12-volt switched accessory harness with relay and USB and 12-volt sockets. It can be easily installed in half an hour with common hand tools and requires no modifications to the bike or cutting or splicing of wiring.

Below are a few examples of the MOTO STUFF 12-volt accessory products currently available for the American market:

Dual USB & 12-Volt version with harness for the Royal Enfield Himalayan - $188.00USD

Scott Hart, President of SRC MOTO & MOTO STUFF added this: “We saw a need for innovative, high-quality electrical accessories over and above what’s traditionally offered by the OEMs. We were struggling to find high-quality solutions for our own motorcycles, and heard the same need from other riders and decided to develop our own.”

These parts are now available online at www.srcmoto.com and www.motostuff.com and a formal Dealer Program is available for dealers located throughout the US and Canada.

Long Way Up to Use Harley-Davidson LiveWire as Adventure Bikes

It appears that Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman could be riding Harley-Davidson's new LiveWire electric motorcycles on their next adventure film, the Long Way Up. This shocking news (pun intended) is being circulated around social media and we first stumbled upon it while perusing Lone Rider’s blog. Trending in the ADV bike community on Twitter, the images below depict Harley-Davidson LiveWires being uncrated in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Long Way Up Harley Davidson LiveWire 04

The Long Way films are multi-episode documentaries that showcase incredible travel stories by motorcycle - the Long Way Round airing in 2004 and Long Way Down in 2007. McGregor and Boorman ride through multiple countries in hopes of experiencing cultures, overcoming challenging overland elements, and promoting the work of UNICEF. The Long Way Up will take the moto duo from South America to Los Angeles.

Long Way Up Harley Davidson LiveWire 05

First unveiled as a prototype in 2014, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire is a 460lb street-based electric motorcycle powered by an oil-cooled, longitudinally mounted, three-phase induction electric motor, which HD calls the "Revalation". It’s rated at 105 horsepower and 86 lb-ft of torque, weighing in at 549 lbs. The images displayed on Lone Rider’s blog show the bikes modified with different tires, wire wheels, and luggage. We can also assume the bikes have revised suspension and ergonomic/comfort modifications as well.

Long Way Up Harley Davidson LiveWire 06

The Long Way team utilized large displacement ADV bikes for their travels in the past (specifically BMW), and many speculated that the latest installment of the Long Way series would continue to the tradition. It wouldn’t be farfetched to conclude that the choice to use LiveWires came down to a bidding war, but we can expect Charley and Ewan to be tight-lipped about this. We’re sure that BMW, Triumph, and Moto Guzzi were all serious considerations for the project. That said, electric is the future of motorcycling, although Charlie and Ewan will have to find a way to work around the LiveWire's limited 95 - 146 mile range. Surely the Long Way Up will entertain, educate, and motivate just as well as the previous documentaries.

Long Way Up Harley Davidson LiveWire 07

How do you think the LiveWire will hold up on the Long Way Up? If the Bar and Shield Brand isn’t your cup of tea, which motorcycles would you have like to have seen chosen for the film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Hilleberg Anaris Tent

Hilleberg is proud to introduce the new 2-person Anaris, a very light and roomy ridge tentconstructed to be pitched with trekking poles. Its excellent combination of light weight, simplicity and impressive comfort make it ideal for backpacking and other warmer weather backcountry adventures.

Part of the Hilleberg Yellow Label series of lightweight, snow-free adventure/3-season models, the Anaris offers a generous 110 cm/43 in of headroom and 2.6 sq m/28 sq ft of inner tent area as well as two entrances and two spacious vestibules, yet it weighs just 1.4 kg/3 lb 1 oz. Both inner tent entrance walls, including the doors, are no-see-um mesh, which, along with the catenary patterning on the outer tent walls ensure excellent full-time airflow, and its outer tent is made from Hilleberg’s Kerlon 1000, avery light and strong silicone-coated nylon with an impressive 8 kg/17.5 lb tear strength.

The tent takes its name and design from an earlier, all-season “Anaris” that was part of the Hilleberg line from the mid 1980s through the early 1990s. It in turn was based on the proven ridge design of Hilleberg’s first tent, the Keb, introduced in 1973, which pioneered Hilleberg’s hallmark linked innerand outer tent construction. “The Keb and the original Anaris were all-season tents,” says Bo Hilleberg, founder and chairman of the company, “and were used in all terrain and conditions with great success, including by a Swedish Himalayan Expedition in the middle of the 1970s, who used it to over 5500 m (18,000 ft). This new Anaris takes the best of our simple yet sturdy ridge concept and reimagines it for the 21st century with our lightest fabrics.”

Hilleberg Anaris White

The new Anaris offers remarkable flexibility. Both doors on both vestibules can be partially or fully rolled away, allowing a myriad of venting options. In addition, either or both of the Anaris’s sides can be rolled up. Like all Hilleberg tents, the Anaris has linked inner and outer tents, allowing either simultaneous pitching or separate use. Used on its own, the outer tent is a supercharged tarp, thanks to its multiple options for rolling the ends or the sides. And the inner tents full mesh ends make it a superb choice for bug protection in hot weather.

While very lightweight ridge tents abound in the market, the Anaris is not meant as a “super ultralight” solution. Hilleberg created it for those who want a simple shelter solution that is light yet roomy and comfortable, something that is geared for walking trips both long and short, and that has all the quality of a Hilleberg tent. “As with all our tents, we built the Anaris not to be the absolute lightest of its kind, but rather the strongest and most reliable at the lightest weight,” says Petra Hilleberg, Hilleberg’s President and CEO. “We have a standard of quality, strength, and comfort that we will not compromise on, and we have had ridge tents in our line throughout our history: First the Keb in the 70s, then, in the 80s and 90s, the original Anaris, which was available in 2-, 3-, and 4-person versions. In the early 2000s we had the Muddus, our modular ridge tent, and then, most recently, the Rajd, a very lightweight shelter designed for adventure racing. We took everything we knew and everything we have learned over 45+ years about building great ridge tents and put that into the new Anaris.”

The Hilleberg Anaris will be available to consumers in Spring 2020 with an MSRP of $595. For more information contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or visit www.hilleberg.com.
