BMW RALLYE motorcycle suit for 2016
An unmistakably rugged look, uncompromisingly high safety standards and comfort features which demonstrate nothing but strengths in all climate zones – it’s easy to see why the Rallye suit has so many enthusiastic fans among riders of BMW motorcycles.
For the start of the 2016 season, this globetrotter is available in the new colours blue/grey and black/red. The suit’s essential new feature is not immediately obvious: from now on the Rallye suit is made of the new material ProTechWool. This modern, sophisticated fabric – a mixture of synthetic fibre and technical wool – is highly breathable, dries quickly and has excellent thermal conduction properties. All in all, ProTechWool provides an improved climate and more pleasant wear properties. A carbon fibre finish compresses the fabric, giving it increased abrasion resistance
The BMW Rallye suit is essentially designed for off-road riding and lengthy tours in summer temperatures. But if the supplied waterproof insert is zipped in, the suit’s range of use can be extended to include colder periods and bad weather, too. The new membrane construction is made possible by means of comfort mapping: each area of the body is assigned the optimum membrane. On the back, in the protector area and in the trouser leg area at the rear saddle the highly breathable Zone 1 membrane “FLOW” is used, at the shoulders and neck Zone 2 “COMFORT” is applied with light, warming fleece, and the entire front section is fitted with Zone 3 “SHIELD” for maximum impermeability.
The pants and jacket have a carefully conceived ventilation system, breathable eyelet lining, ventilation zips, front ventilation with velcro fastener and a large ventilation opening at the rear. If the temperature rises sharply, the jacket can be converted into a vest by unzipping the sleeves and worn over the protector jacket.
The BMW Rallye suit is of course fitted with NP2 protectors, too. These excellent protectors provide safeguard the back, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees and have three adjustment positions. They are also removable, so the jacket can be supplemented with a protector vest for off-road riding, for instance. High- risk points have a Cordura underlay, while reflective surfaces on the jacket and pants increase visibility in the dark and dull weather.
The BMW Rallye suit is available exclusively for men.
Sizes available: 46–66 and 98–118 in the colour combination blue/grey; 46–60 in black/red.
The pants are also available in the size 24–27.
