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.

KTM Releases Your New Favorite Motorcycle, the 790 Adventure and Adventure R

No two motorcyclists are alike. They’re a diverse bunch of street bikers, cruisers, off-road kings, daredevils, and general lunatics taking their lives in their hands every time they hop onto their two-wheeled mode of transportation. Yet, for those that have been riding for decades, that would rather take their motorcycle across the country than an airplane, if you asked those motorcyclists what their perfect motorcycle would be, it would likely line up with what KTM has cooked up with the 790 Adventure and Adventure R.

KTM’s 790 Adventure and Adventure R have been built to be the top dogs of the middle-weight adventure motorcycle category. The relatively lightweight motorcycle, coming in at 416 pounds, uses the same 799cc parallel-twin engine from the 790 Duke and makes a healthy 95 horsepower. Tapped with a 5.2-gallon fuel tank, this is a motorcycle that’s been designed to go anywhere you’d like and get you back home without a problem. Illustrating that fact further is the KTM’s suspension which, like the rest of the motorcycle, is ready for anything.

Ural’s New Off-Road Motorcycle Comes With Its Own Drone
ural air motorcycle

Ural motorcycles are known for being damn-near indestructible. They are, for lack of a better comparison, the AK-47 of motorcycles. Throw them in the mud, jam the wrong cartridge into the chamber, beat it with a rock, and they still work — they even ask for more. Yet, like the rifle, the motorcycle hasn’t exactly been changed with the times. However, a new Ural features an option that brings it somewhat into the 21st century: a drone.
