New Season – New Fashion – New Technology

Oxford (02 February 2012) - Harley-Davidson is motorcycling, and Harley-Davidson® clothing and accessories go hand in hand with motorcycling. Take, for instance, the Harley-Davidson FXRG® range. Although this sublime range – part of the Core Collection – is available all-year round with products to suit summer and winter riding, Harley-Davidson does not sit on its creative fingers. More and more products are added to the range all the time; some with substantial technological input…

One such technology is Cocona®, a modern textile derived from coconut shell. The end result is a natural carbon-fibre-like material that can be woven into thread used to make clothing. Not only is the Cocona product tough and durable, it is also extremely effective at ‘wicking’ moisture away from the skin – some 50% more breathable than competitors – and aids riders to keep cool. It also means Cocona lifts moisture from each layer of an apparel system 50% to 250% faster, too. Another benefit is it draws and retains body heat, which all goes together to aid wet apparel to dry three-times quicker than previous FXRG jacket linings.

Another benefit of this naturally derived product is it never washes or wears out. In fact, the area of Cocona fibres actually increases with wear. And let’s not forget our new FXRG jackets feature Superfabric®, a material that is 10-times more resistant to abrasion to leading equivalents.


Just one example of the FXRG clothing featuring Cocona and Superfabric is the women’s Leather Jacket. Waterproof and windproof, it also comes with removable body armour and kidney belt. A full length zip and perfect cut for the female body, this is a jacket that will ensure comfort, protection and style.

Main features are removable, lightweight and breathable PrimaLoft® warmth liner that can also be worn separately. Two front vertical vents, two shoulder vents, and two back vertical exit vents. Removable, lightweight body armour is present at elbows and shoulders with a body armour pocket at back.

The impressive specification doesn’t stop: snap tab mandarin collar and a two way front zipper with inner storm flap. Slightly pre-curved sleeves have zipped cuffs. Zips feature on hand pockets and one chest pocket. Interior pocket system with one zipper pocket and one waterproof zipper pocket with access for a MP3 player. Zipper at back waist attaches to FXRG® Overpant. Reflective nylon fabric inlays on front and sleeves. 3M® Scotchlite™ Reflective material piping. Custom metal badge on chest. Embroidered graphics at back. Embossed graphic on sleeve.

And if that little lot above isn’t enough, FXRG clothing has a limited lifetime warranty, which means that the jacket is warranted for life whilst the original purchaser has it (subject to normal wear and tear use). You want the best; this is the best. Go see your nearest Harley-Davidson dealer today and check out how Harley-Davidson can kit out anybody with comfort, style and safety.

Along with the Core Collection, Harley-Davidson also produces three seasonal collections of riding and casual gear. The Spring Collection® is available for men and women in dealers across the UK.

Casual clothing figures highly in the Harley-Davidson camp, so even though you might not be riding your bike, you will be able to dress to make everyone aware that your preferred choice of transport is a Harley-Davidson.

Denim will never go out of fashion while the sun still rises and what better way to appreciate this symbol of tough hardwearing clothing than the Spring Collection Long Sleeve Denim Shirt. Discreet embroidery H-D initials on the left chest and back go superbly with the twin chest pockets. Of course, this shirt isn’t just for looking good at night; it also makes for a stylish top when you take off your FXRG leather jacket…
