BMW Motorrad awaits the new 2015 season with joyful anticipation.
Heading the field is the GS helmet, a pure-bred enduro helmet with safety features also found in the professional sphere. Matching it are the GS enduro goggles, which are perfectly tailored to the outstanding ventilation system of the GS helmet.
This time round, however, the main focus of the BMW Motorrad Rider's Equipment range for the upcoming season are the suits. The bandwidth of the collection stretches from summery biking gear for urban riding to high-end material designed as a dependable partner all the way to the limit.
The TourShell suit is an all-rounder for every season of the year, making it highly popular among riders of either gender. This year the latest-generation NP2 protectors are also on board. In pole position with its seamless professional safety package is the DoubleR suit, which BMW Motorrad is fielding as the ambassador of its sporting brand credentials. The Venting suit, made of a summery textile in denim look, is thoroughly persuasive, while the waterproof CoverAll suit fully lives up to its name: it can be worn over a complete business outfit on the office commute. And here's what our male and female bikers alike asked for: we are offering, with immediate effect, the classy GS Dry suit in an identical colour combination for him and her. Over in the luxury touring class, meanwhile, the Atlantis suit – made using strictly sustainable methods – continues to set the tone.
Sports-minded riders won't ever want to take off their DoubleR boots again – except perhaps for a quick trip into town, where the relaxed RIDE sneaker is a real show-stealer. For those who like their entire kit in racing quality, there's also the DoubleR glove. And like the suit of the same name, the Atlantis glove delivers sheer luxury.
Three entirely different jackets have a smart concept in common: to lend each leisure outfit a strong presence while remaining an out-and-out biker's jacket. The Club leather jacket is feisty-casual, while the DoubleR and Race jackets represent BMW Motorrad's sporty side. The new cargo-look Rider trousers can be combined with all the jackets in the collection.
Bikers can also look forward to first-class functional clothing from the 2015 BMW Motorrad Rider Equipment range. Functional undergarments, as well as the Summer and Thermo functional socks, provide excellent ventilation, are perfectly tailored to the requirements of motorcyclists and finished to the highest quality. If required, the two-piece PCM suit featuring Phase Change Material can be worn over these garments – but under the actual biker's suit – to ensure a perfect body climate even in inclement weather. With their small pack size and light weight, the two-piece Rainlock suit and the ProRain oversuit are useful assets to keep stowed away on board. If it comes to the worst, these are absolutely dependable bad-weather companions.
High-quality luggage, perfectly tailored to BMW motorcycles: the Function backpack worn on the body is a marvel of space and ergonomics, and can be quickly turned into a motorcycle bag, while the Softbag, available in two sizes, offers uncomplicated stowage space at the rear. A classic in a new guise, meanwhile, will be returning for duty in the 2015 season: boasting a new design and colour but preserving its laidback appeal, the robust Luggage roll is suited to practically any BMW motorcycle.
In customary mode, the Style collections offer cool-look, premium styles and upmarket accessories for all fans of the BMW Motorrad brand. The sporty, functional collection BMW Motorrad Dynamic Style and the iconic, laidback BMW Motorrad Roadster Style collection are sure to set pulses racing.
