AETHER Drops a Motorcycle Jacket and More in New Line for Riders

A good set of leather riding gear is truly worth the investment. The intangibles out on the open road mean that you could go from wind-through-your-hair to road rash in a split second. If you’re not protected, you’ll be feeling it for weeks (or even a lifetime) after.

The flipside to all of this is that motorcycle gear is heavy, hot and a pain to haul around when you’re not on the bike.

Fortunately, AETHER has unveiled a line of breathable, active motorcycle gear that won’t weigh you down and still protects you from start to finish.

They’ve brought their functional fabrics and streamlined colorways to four new motorcycle-ready pieces.

The Badlands Jacket is the quintessential motorcycle jacket with added, purposeful ventilation to keep you cool while not on the bike. It has plenty of zippers for storage and adjustment and benefits from a partnership with D30 for top-notch impact protection and shock absorption.

The jacket partners with the Ramble Pant that uses much of the same D30 protection. It’s made with thinner cut Schoeller fabric and a slimmer hemline, which transitions nicely from the ride to the office. It’s an everyday pant with wind and water resistance.

If the Badlands Jacket is a little too much, you can opt for the Rally Jacket, which is lighter, more affordable, and can be snapped closed for additional airflow. It’s a summertime jacket that has plenty of intuition (they even rubberized the bottom snap so it doesn’t scratch the paint on your tank).

It all comes together with gorgeous Moto Gloves that come in tan and black leather colorways. These padded beauties are fully adjustable and have a cross-stitch design that reminds us of some of our favorite car interiors.

The pieces range from $150-$850 and you can purchase them here.

Tesla Model 3 refresh brings new colors, interior, and more
Tesla Model 3 updates impress
Tesla Model 3 Highland refresh two cars, one red one gray, both headed the same way on a highway.

A recent refresh of the 2024 Telsa Model 3 EV includes new colors, upgraded wheels, and updated exterior and interior design. Tesla reduced Model 3 and Model Y prices twice last fall, and those prices hold for the refreshed Model 3. The rear-wheel drive Model 3 starting price is $38,990. The Model 3 Long Range, the dual-motor version with all-wheel drive, starts at $45,990.

The new Model 3 is available for order on Tesla's website, with delivery from January through March, depending on configuration and color. It's worth mentioning upfront that Tesla changes prices up and down more frequently than most automakers. Tesla has not made any statements about introductory pricing, but if demand increases significantly for the new Model 3 version, Tesla could raise the prices anytime.

Polestar expands EV lineup with 3 new, more powerful models
More EVs from Polestar? Yes, please
Polestar 3, 4, 5 and 6 on stage

Polestar, the Swedish automaker owned by Volvo, has only one fully electric vehicle currently available in the U.S. market — the Polestar 2, a competitor of the Tesla Model 3. However, for Polestar to catch up with its biggest rivals, it needs to expand its lineup with more EV models — and it has plans to do so.

It first unveiled the Polestar 3 in 2022; delivery was expected to start in 2023, but it may take longer than that. The Swedish automaker also unveiled the 2025 Polestar 4 in April this year. Meanwhile, we only saw the concept version of the Polestar 5 until recently during the Polestar Day event when the production model was unveiled. The Polestar 6 also made a brief appearance, and we caught a glimpse of what it might look like. What can you expect in the upcoming Polestar models?
