Video: Helstons rag leather race jacket

No, you are not dreaming, we are not back in the 70s. french brand Helstons was simply inspired by the golden age of motorcycling to create its latest leather, the helstons Race jacket. It doesn't come straight from the 70s, but straight from the brand's 2017 catalog. This leather jacket will appeal to those nostalgic for the paddocks of the 70's, and fans of old bikes... And with its extra protection (as standard), the De Race will also be able to take care of old skins.

The old with the latest taste: Helstons De Race jacket

With the helstons Race jacket, the French brand gives us a change from the usual black leather. Navy blue and white, with white and red stripes: the De Race makes you stand out from the crowd. But beyond the style, we must also talk about the quality of this leather. We are here on a 1 mm thick bovine leather. To obtain this aged effect, so dear to the brand, it has been washed and waxed. A stylish asset that also plays on comfort, we must admit, since bovine leather benefits from good flexibility.

Good old style ok, but what if we went back to the future? Although the brand has kept one foot in the 70s, it has also relied on the innovations of recent years for your comfort and protection. Thus, we can already note the presence of a full insulating lining… That is to say, it also protects your arms in case of severe cold. In case of extreme heat, however, you can remove it. Another thing: the helstons Race jacket has a rainproof membrane. Yes, to protect the leather from water and keep it longer, you had to equip yourself with a small waterproof membrane. That said, it is better to dry your jacket after a heavy downpour, and take care of leather, to ensure good resistance over time.

Finally, on the protection side too, Helstons has rather placed its trust in the latest innovations. The De Race has two pairs of CE certified shockproof cases, shoulders and elbows, and a backbone as standard. Good point ! Although it is a leather jacket, a material that already resists abrasion well, it is also equipped with a cotton lining to limit the effects of bitumen.

When vintage style combines with the latest innovations, to ensure protection and comfort, we achieve great success. Perfect if you look for a jacket which will accompany you both on the roads on a daily basis, and during outings with friends.
