We are pretty demanding when it comes to protective motorcycle equipment, luckily we know the right people who have the skills to make our wardrobe wishlists a reality. Over the past few years, we have partnered with our friends over at Merlin to offer you some exclusive riding gear under the Onyx name. The resulting sneakers, jacket and gloves have been a hit with our customers (and ourselves). This year we wanted to offer truly understated, yet reassuringly protective garments that would do away with the need for a bulky motorcycle jacket. Queue the Onyx Hoodie: a dedicated, fully abrasion-resistant and armoured riding hoodie.
For the Onyx, Merlin combine a premium black cotton outer layer with a Kevlar® liner. This abrasion-resistant layer will protect your skin in a slide and works in perfect harmony with the ‘set-and-forget’ D3O Ghost armour in the shoulders and elbows which is so unobtrusive you'll forget it's there, until you need it. You can upgrade the protection further thanks to a back protector ready pocket.
Anyone witnessing you on your bike might call you crazy for riding in a simple hoodie, little do they know you're wearing a fully protective top that has received a CE level AA safety rating! Throw your casual winter jacket on top, and you've got an all year round solution whenever you want to hit the road. Not a fan of hoodies? Have a look at our Onyx Sweatshirt!
