New Hevik jackets, trousers and gloves
Designed for long-distance riding, Hevik’s ‘Titanium’ jacket is a 3-layer multifunction jacket for all seasons.
Said to be “capable of facing any weather conditions with guaranteed safety features, as well as protection and resistance” features include reflective inserts, trouser attach zip, shoulder and elbow overlays in DMAX 1000D fabric, level 2 SW CE protector in the shoulders and elbows (EN 1621-1:2012) and optional Hevik H-Full Back armour back pocket.
The outer fabric is in Ripstop 600D and Polycordura 600D, with a waterproof membrane that can be worn independently and a fully removable thermal inner layer. Hevik say that the leather finishes, attention to detail and wide range of adjustment options
make this a “top-of-the-range” garment. The ‘Titanium’ incorporates the Fidlock system, which ensures comfortable opening of the 7 ventilation zippers and is fastened via a central zipper with a weatherproof overlap plus a secondary overlap with hook and loop fastening.
Hevik’s ‘Merak’ is a summer riding nylon jacket available in men’s and women’s tailoring. Made in high-strength nylon, features include vents on the chest, back and sleeves, ‘Smooth Ways’ protectors as standard on shoulders and elbows and in the back (CE level 1, approved to EN1621.1.201) and back protector pocket.
Other features include “hook and loop adjustable straps on both sides, adjustable button straps on the sleeves, zippers and buttons on the cuffs, three pockets of which the inner (one of which is waterproof), high visibility inserts and a dedicated pants connection”.
The company’s short, urban style ‘Mann’ gloves are said to be ‘off-road’ inspired for street riding. Described as “easy to wear and guaranteeing perfect breathability even during warmer weather”, the exterior is constructed from a combination of three different fabrics - Clarino, a synthetic, leather-like material often used to make gloves worn by Enduro or Motocross riders; Softshell, a high-tech fabric that is said to be particularly suitable for garments that require increased freedom of movement, and leather as reinforcement on the palms.
‘Terrain’ 3-layer trousers
These black three-layer technical trousers by Hevik are “ideal for those who love adventure touring”. Waterproof, warm in winter and ventilated for summer, ‘Terrain’ are perfect for tourers and enduros, and the ‘Titan’ jacket is the perfect match”.
The two garments are joined by a zip, the trousers having been designed to a high specification with a special waterproof and breathable W-STRIDER membrane and a thermal lining, both of which are removable. Two wide rear vents ensure good ventilation. Made of polyester and nylon, CE-compliant protectors have been added at knee height (EN 1621-1:2012) and foam reinforcements in the hip areas. Pleats at the knees and elasticated fabric on the inside leg ensure a perfect fit, along with a totally adjustable triple strap closure system.
‘Rock Dark R’ gloves
Hevik’s “Rock Dark R” long gloves are 100% waterproof with an inner membrane. They have a thermo liner and a practical closure that utilises two anti-slip hook and loop straps, the main strap is placed at the bottom, is elasticated and designed to adapt to the shape and size of a sleeve, while the secondary strap wraps around the wrist. There is a combination of leather and fabric overlays on top of the palm, with hard polycarbonate protection at the knuckles and multiple soft reinforcements around the finger joints.
They are recommended for “motorcyclists who ride in winter, both inside and outside the city, with a taste for sport touring”. They are level 1 CE EN 13594:2015 certified.
